I am Paul, a husband, father, and photographer serving the east coast NY, NJ, tri-state area, and available for travel worldwide. I have a joy and enthusiasm for life, love, and marriage. I love creating beautiful photos and capturing moments and memories but more importantly I love to photograph weddings and engagements because I love marriage and the love it signifies.
I believe your wedding and engagement photography should be as beautiful as the emotions they capture. The photos I take are light & airy, soft & natural, intimate & candid. The experience is relaxed, carefree, and romantic. I am committed to providing beautiful photos and a beautiful experience to our couples, while helping them to be fully present to one another during our time together. I value each of my couples and how they inspire me in my own marriage.
Wedding collections start at $5150. Any products you may wish to choose such as albums and canvas prints, can be added upon request. I would love to set up a time to meet with you and your fiancé at my studio and hear more about your wedding and what you are looking for.
I work together with each couple before the wedding to create the perfect wedding day schedule, shot lists, and timeline. I keep the time, mind the shot lists and schedule so that you do not have to, but instead are free to fully enjoy your wedding day stress-free. I strive to make your wedding experience, from the planning to the big day and beyond, the most blessed experience.

The best decision you'll make ...
Paul was recommended to me by a colleague, and I had only seen their engagement pictures when I first started exploring. I quickly found his website and thought he was the most talented—believe me, I looked at a lot of photographers’ websites. He was described as my colleague’s “favorite” vendor, and he quickly became ours. Leading up to our big day, from the engagement shoot to phone conversations, he makes sure he understands the venue, the flow of the day, the people who will surround you… and then magically turns that into a gallery of photos that become your memories of an incredible day. In my opinion, choosing the photographer is the most important decision you’ll make when it comes to wedding planning: when you’re old and gray, those pictures become what you remember, so they have to be incredible! I’m a private person and some photographers had a publicity fee if you didn’t want your photos posted on their site or blogs, but not Paul. And he will always be one step ahead of you. I was amazed at the speed with which we received our wedding photos, and many of our guests raved not only about the gallery but also about how smoothly the group portraits went. I never felt like I was missing the wedding because photos were taking too long. I’m a very picky person, so I picked Paul—best decision I made:)Sent on 06/09/2019

Paul provided an incredible selection of photos
Paul was an incredibly thoughtful and organized photographer and he really delivered in terms of the photos from our wedding day (and our engagement too!). He turned our photos around very quickly and we are overwhelmed by the number of fantastic photos we have from our wedding day. He solicited feedback after our engagement shoot and kept in mind the poses we ended up liking and disliking when taking the photos on our wedding day. He also delivered so many little extra things to us, including a small album on our wedding day and an incredible slideshow of highlights from the edited photos. We did not have a videographer and given the amazing photographs and slideshow, I don't feel like we missed out on anything. I strongly recommend Paul.Sent on 12/30/2018

Captured our wedding with elegance
I knew before I even got engaged that Paul would be our photographer, as I had always loved his beautifully soft and delicate photos. Throughout the entire planning process, Paul was always reaching out to check in and had a day-of timeline prepared for us (with alternate plans depending if my dress had a corset back or not... he thought of it ALL!). We were a bit nervous for our engagement shoot, but Paul immediately put us at ease and we had an absolute blast. In the last few weeks of the planning, I could always depend on him to have an answer for every question I had and assured me that we would be on schedule (being late to the church was my biggest fear!). When he arrived the morning of the wedding, his amazingly calm demeanor settled over the house (thankfully!) and my mom and I still remark about how soft spoken, yet completely in control he was in a house full of changing bridesmaids, an anxious mother and bride, and two screaming toddlers. I remarked a few times that I was worried we'd be late and Paul constantly reassured me we'd be on time and not to worry unless I saw him worrying (he didn't even sound frustrated the fourteenth time I anxiously asked if we'd be late!). He and the second photographer, Rachel, did a beautiful job capturing our ceremony and quickly got the bridal party photos done without any visible shivering. On top of the gorgeous bridal portraits, Paul and Rachel were able to capture all of the personality and fun on the dance floor at the reception as well. In addition to their tireless efforts during the day, Paul had a monitor looping photos from earlier in the day at the reception; my guests and I were in total awe!! We were also so happy to take home a small album of photos from the day so we could start showing friends and family... that was truly the icing on the cake. They say you get what you pay for and with Paul Francis Photography, I felt like we got all that we paid for and even more, down to the smallest, thoughtful details. Thank you, Paul and Rachel, for capturing the most amazing day of our lives so beautifully!Sent on 12/04/2018
Paul is professional, attentive and fun to be around. His smile is contageous. I really enjoy working with him and watching him work with his clients. He is an amazing photographer and I am happy to call him my friend.
Paul and I have worked weddings together. He is a talented photographer and a pleasure to work with. Choosing Paul Francis Photography will be the best choice you can make for your perfect wedding images! His work speaks for itself!
Paul Francis Photography was a pleasure to work with. They are unobtrusive and capture some of the most amazing moments. They have a distinctly fresh style and take extreme pride in their work. They are also very personable and friendly, not only during the wedding, but long after the last photo is taken. They were the first photographers I had worked with who gave me credit on their blog as the hairstylist for a wedding they shot. They also shared the excitement with the other vendors when their photos were featured on a wedding blog. To me, this shows their couples aren't just numbers, but celebrations to be cherished and shared! Its also a huge plus that their photos are gorgeous! I highly recommend Paul Francis Photography!!
