For the past decade, Paul J. Spetrini has been one of the fastest rising journalists in Rhode Island and with good reason: his attention to detail, his passion for telling a complete, objective story and his desire to constantly learn new things is second to none.
After a remarkable six-year career at Southern Rhode Island Newspapers where he was recognized with numerous awards and honors for his efforts and his dedication to his craft, Paul left his position as news editor of the North Kingstown Standard Times in 2013 to pursue other interests and broaden his knowledge and experience in his true passion—photography.
Now, Paul has jumped head-first into the field he loves and his hope is that, as he learns more and more about the craft, he can help countless individuals and couples throughout New England capture their special memories and moments through a medium both timeless and breathtaking.
As Paul continues to educate himself in the field of photography, he has also returned to his original love (journalism) and now works as a page designer for Independent Newspapers, home of the South County Independent and North East Independent Newspapers, the two most beloved and well-respected newspapers in Southern Rhode Island.
In addition, Paul reguarly shoots sports, candid events, proms and senior portraits for the East Providence-based school photography company Mare Studios; works as a regular contributor for the sports photography website www.risportsphoto.com (the official photographer of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League); contributes to on-location field work with www.teamphotoshots.com and has recently begun shooting weddings for the nationally-known George Street Photography wedding company.
In his spare time, Paul loves nothing more than coming up with an idea, coordinating with a group of individuals on how to best execute that idea and watching it grow from concept to completion. He also looks forward to one day trying out stand-up comedy, though if his wife has her way, he'll keep that dream to himself.

Our photos are absolutely beautiful!
When we witnessed Paul photograph my brother's wedding back in 2018, my fiance (now husband) and I knew that we really wanted him for our upcoming wedding, so we were beyond excited when he was available. Let me just start by saying that it is very clear to me that Paul is very passionate about what he does. In my opinion, that is one of the most important things, because he truly cares and does everything he can to capture the perfect moments. He not only photographed all the big moments, but a lot of unexpected small moments as well, which I absolutely loved. He is very detail oriented, always setting up photos in a very appealing way, all those little things that one might not think about, that make for a stunning photo. Even our wedding guests commented on how awesome he was. Our pictures came out absolutely beautiful and we couldn't be happier. So, to anyone looking for a great photographer, who will lay in the grass and take on any challenge to get the perfect shot, and not only do beautiful work, but at a reasonable price too, Paul is your guy!Sent on 06/21/2019

Nick and Hillary Wedding - May 24, 2019
Planning a wedding is all about making decisions - hundreds of them in a few short months. There was no better decision that my husband and I made, nor one in which we were so thrilled about, as the one we made to hire Paul J. Spetrini Photography to capture every moment of our special day. From our engagement photos, to the way he interacted with our friends and family on our wedding day, to the final results - which truly speak for themselves - he was an amazing photographer, and any couple would count themselves lucky to have him to record the most important moments of the most important day of their lives! Thank you, Paul!Sent on 06/18/2019
