Having Paul photograph our day was the easiest decision we made, other then choosing one another! From the moment we saw Paul’s work, we knew his style aligned with ours. However, it was our initial call with Paul that showed us it was not only...
his stylistic vision, but his overall personality and character that sealed the deal. This initial phone call - which lasted well over two hours one evening - felt as if we were talking to an old friend. Paul was instrumental throughout our entire wedding planning process. He was a constant source of encouragement, support and excitement! When the big day finally arrived, we could not be more thrilled to spend the day with Paul and his team. We are not a couple who enjoys being the center of attention, and we felt so at ease with Paul. Before our reception even started, Paul had several images running on a screen (which we had no idea he was bringing with him, let alone that we would have photos to see before dinner was even served!). It truly felt like Paul was a friend at our event, rather then a vendor. His skill is unmatched. We look forward to building our friendship with Paul over the years as we continue to seek his guidance and creativity throughout life’s milestone!

our engagement session, to the planning process, to the actual day of Paul (and his awesome crew member Rachel) created an environment that was calming, creative, and more importantly fun! Paul's incredibly keen eye for the right light, the right placement/pose, the right location is unlike any wedding photographer I have ever experienced (having been in a handful of weddings) and the feedback that I received from guests after viewing the live streamed images was pure amazement. Because of Paul, my husband and I have beautiful images to look back on and remember the best night of our lives. Thank you, thank you thank you to Paul and Rachel for playing an extremely important role in a very important day of our lives. To future couples out there looking for a photographer, BOOK PAUL FRANCIS!

Our guests absolutely loved the live photos being streamed to the tablet in our reception and couldn't believe the quality of them (even before any editing!) Within 2 weeks of our wedding, Paul emailed us all our files to download, share, and enjoy. We look at them almost every day and each day choose a new favorite shot. He captured the joy, love, laughter, and community from early morning until late in the night. He worked seamlessly with our videographer and never felt intrusive. We can't wait to get our wedding album and know it will be treasured for generations to come! Thank you, Paul, for being a key member of our special day!

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:)

He is very creative and knows how to work with natural light. He even gave us and our parents a small album as a wedding gift at the end of the reception to “tide is over” until all the photos are done. I don’t know how he did that so quickly! The photos we’ve seen so far are completely gorgeous and we can’t wait to see the rest. On top of being creative, punctual and organized, Paul is just a really, really nice person.

epared 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!

I recommend Paul to everyone! One of my good friends is using him at her wedding after she saw our engagement photos and another friend just contacted him about her wedding. He was 100% our favorite vendor! Not only are his photos breathtaking ...
but he is exactly the type of person who you want with you on your wedding day. He has such a calming presence! We first used him for our engagement photos. He was flexible and took incredible photos in the greenery of Central Park and then in Brooklyn with the Manhattan skyline in the background and the sun setting. We decided pretty last minute about making the trek to Brooklyn as the second location and he was totally on board. Before the wedding he checked in about any specific shots we wanted and followed through on every single request. I was very stressed about rain (the day before was predicting 96% thunderstorms) and he explained that even if it rained we would be able to get outside and the photos would be beautiful regardless. The weather ended up being perfect but I still knew that he had it covered either way. He also had a very organized and efficient process for making sure all the family photos get done quickly and with the right people.
We are so happy with our photos from the wedding. His photos capture the moments so perfectly and then he also has some amazing, artistic, soft ones that I swear look like they're meant for a magazine. He also got us our photos in less than a month! Incredibly quick compared to my other friends' photographers.
Thank you a million times over, Paul, for capturing our happiest day!

etics and like things to look nice! We also don't take ourselves/life too seriously, so this posed a problem when planning a wedding ourselves.
This is where Paul came in. From the very first phone call, I could tell Paul was an absolute professional, a talented artist, a romantic himself and someone who would take our day extremely seriously. He already was asking questions about timing of our ceremony so he could plan for the sunset! He never pushed, instead he actively listened and proposed ideas that suited us.
We opted for the engagement shoot so we could see what it was like to have our picture taken, and meet Paul in advance. BEST DECISION. This is what took any anxiety I had about wedding photos completely off my plate for the next year that we planned our wedding.
My wedding day experience, from start to finish, was more than anything I could have asked for. And I owe this to Paul. His presence was calming and necessary. He kept us on a schedule, and captured the most beautiful, natural moments through out the day/night, without me ever feeling like I was "on display." I was very present minded & genuinely experiencing everything the entire time.
The gorgeous photos I have to look back on, I remember taking because Paul allowed me to have the moments to take it in and I thank you, Paul, for that.
And can I just say, that every single picture is beautiful? Natural, Genuine, Authentic... while all the while Artistic, Beautiful, Captivating! All of my friends and family raved about the photos, and many of my friends will be reaching out to him when their time comes.
But I think the sweetest thing of it all, was that Paul put together a photo album for my husband and I to have and take with us at the end of the night. It meant so much to have those photos with us on our Honeymoon and be able to have with us for the holidays when we got back.
Paul and his team are the absolute best, and I look forward to the day our paths cross again!

st importantly Paul is a genuine salt of the earth kind of guy. He is very calm which I appreciated. He spoke to me in a respectful manner and has worked with my extreme indecisiveness. He truly understands that a wedding is extremely important for everyone including family and friends and wants to make sure he can facilitate the story of the entire day. He was flexible - we have a disabled family member that required time sensitive pictures and did not fit the typical framework. He did not bat an eyelash at our special requests and understood just how important these pictures were. These are real pictures. There may be a shadow, not a distracting shadow, but that is real. They are high quality pieces of art. He is reliable and trustworthy. I have no doubt that I selected the most amazing photographer.
He also did our engagement photographs. I wanted really gritty NYC pictures which we did get, but he also convinced us to do some central park pictures and they are AMAZING! He really worked hard to make us comfortable and to get to know us to tell our story and not make us fit into a typical cookie cutter pattern of pictures.

In addition, our pre-wedding discussion ran so smoothly because it was just re-confirming and asking questions rather than having to go through everything and hoping we didn’t forget anything. His day-of team was also amazing and proactive and incredibly friendly as well. We’ve already received our preview pictures and WOW, they so much more than we could have ever imagined. Paul is both incredibly talented and a lot of fun to work with!

Paul did our engagement photos and I can't emphasize enough how amazing he is! The experience was not only enjoyable, fun, and romantic for my fiancé and I, but the photos came out GORGEOUS!! We were a little nervous, but he knew exactly how to...
make us feel comfortable right from the beginning, which led to the most natural photos that really captured our love. We are getting married abroad, and weren't sure that we would do an engagement session at all, but I am so thankful that we have Paul's photos to cherish forever!

When planning our wedding, the most important thing to us was to have good pictures because they will last a lifetime. We are so happy we chose Paul Francis Photography. Our photos came out absolutely stunning and we will cherish them for years...
to come. Paul captured our wedding so well. I cannot chose a favorite photo because they're all stunning and each hold a special memory of that day. We cannot imagine choosing anyone else to photograph our wedding.
Paul's work speaks for itself---it's perfection, beautiful, and professional. We loved working with Paul. He made everything so easy with his online forms (that you can constantly update---and I did) and was responsive to our questions. On our wedding day, he kept everyone on time without feeling rushed or stressed out. We are a bit camera shy, but Paul made us feel comfortable and gave us space to enjoy being with each other. When we got back our photos I was amazed at some of the angles because he was never intrusive.
At the reception, he set up a slideshow of some of the pictures taken that day and gave us an album as a gift. We were blown away by the pictures and have no idea how he had time to print them. Him and his team were with us all day. It made our day extra special and held us over until we received our photos. That kind of thoughtfulness and attention to detail was present throughout working with Paul and shows in our photos.
Paul and his team are truly professionals, and I would highly recommend choosing them for your wedding.

Working with Paul has been an absolute pleasure. From our very first meeting, through the wedding day and even now as we finalize the album design, Paul has been outstanding!
We started working with Paul about a year before our wedding for ou...
r engagement shoot. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and it was great to watch him get creative and excited during the shoot. The results were outstanding!
Throughout the buildup to the wedding he was so organized and responsive. Paul took the time to get to know us and that made us feel all the more comfortable. He gave us suggestions but also made sure to cater to our preferences. He even helped with planning suggestions not related to photography to help make sure our day went smoothly.
On our wedding day he and his assistants Rachel and Anne were warm and professional. Paul has such a calming demeanor, in the flurry of the day he was relaxed, but also very organized and mindful of keeping on schedule. We had an extensive list of specific photos we needed to get with our families. When it came time to take those photos after our ceremony, he was very well organized and referred to our family members by name, which made the whole process run very smoothly.
During our couple's portraits we felt completely at ease. It was a nice break in the action of the day where we felt like we were on our own private date! Paul and his team didn't rush us, and really went above and beyond to get some amazing shots. Anne even let me borrow her shoes to walk through a garden so that my heels wouldn't sink into the dirt! We trusted his creativity and his ideas, and we couldn't be happier with the photos that we're going to look at for the rest of our lives. At the reception he checked in with us to see if there were any more photos that we wanted to get, and gave us a lot of personal attention.
In the weeks and months after our wedding Paul's been very responsive. We received the final proofs much sooner than expected, and we've been working with him on the design for our photo album.
We recommend Paul to any couple looking for a top notch photographer. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks Paul!

There are honestly so many positive things to say about Paul that I do not know where to start. I had originally viewed Paul's work from someone I had attended high school with and instantly fell in love with his talent. Paul's breathtaking pho...
tos were exactly the look I was going for and as soon as I got engaged I called him right away. From the very first meeting Paul was professional, down to Earth, and made us feel incredibly comfortable. These qualities were only enhanced during our engagement shoot; so much, in fact, that my fiancé who initially told me on our way to the shoot that he didn't know what to expect left the day with a smile beaming, saying how awesome it was! Those photos came out BEAUTIFUL and truly captured our love and excitement for each other. Throughout the time of my engagement Paul made me feel at ease and confident each step of the way. Then, our wedding day came and Paul, his assistant, and our second shooter honestly fully exceeded our already high expectations. By this point I was so excited for my wedding and our pictures and Paul equally shared in our excitement! He showed me pictures as we went which just boosted my excitement higher and he truly made my girls and I feel (and look of course!) stunning. Paul was so efficient in taking all of our photos, and, as always, creating a comfort between us all the entire time. He knew what was important to us and was sure to capture everything we were looking for throughout the night. Toward the middle of the night there were already pictures being played on a slideshow and we were given unedited, same day photos in an album before we left! Talk about a takeaway gift! My husband and I cannot stop looking at the amazing photos, with smiles on our faces! Working with Paul was honestly the most wonderful experience and now we have gained a friend! In short, I HIGHLY recommend using Paul, his work speaks for itself and he will create an everlasting experience for you. Not just an out of this world photographer, but also a great person! Simply, the best!! :)

ur photographer, he has a great attention to detail and impeccably organized. From all of my last minute questions to the ring bearer needing to go to the emergency room, he took it all in stride and made sure that we got all the photos we wanted and so much more. We also did a photobooth through him, and our guests and us had a blast! He brought a great calmness to our day and helped us to truly focus on what matters, each other, and we cannot thank him enough for that. We thank him for his patience, kindness and the joy he showed us all day long. As we walked back to the hotel together, we both looked at one another smiling and unanimously agreed that he was our favorite person of the day and we could not have worked with anyone better. We had an amazing day and he helped to make sure of that. We received so many compliments on his photographs of us, our friends and family were amazed at his beautiful work, and the surprise book at the end of the night made me cry. Last night he sent us our photographs, and they were just as expected... Amazing! We would choose Paul all over again, you cannot put a price on someone capturing beautiful memories of your day and moments you forgot happened (because the day goes so fast!), Paul captured our day exactly how we remembered it, we could not be happier :) Thank you Paul!!!! I would not hesitate to book Paul as your Photographer, as a photography teacher myself, I can tell you he is the total package, and exactly what you want in your wedding photographer, his photos are amazing right out of the camera!

From the very beginning we knew we wanted to go with Paul Francis photography! Their pictures were not just pictures but works of art. Paul's eye for a shot is amazing. He truly loves what he does and this shows in his pictures.
Paul was not ...
only a brilliant photographer but also a wonderful person to work with. He made us feel comfortable every step of the way. He was quick to answer questions and work with us to achieve what we wanted.
One things that really impressed me was that he offers a registry for the photography. We were able to open a wedding registry with him to use for my bridal shower. This was a unique service that I've never seen offered anywhere else before.
During the shooting of our pictures we got to see some of his shots right there. He also streamed them on his laptop during the reception for our guests to enjoy! They were amazing! We can't wait to get our pictures back!
I would highly recommend Paul Francis photography to anyone who wants high quality photography for their wedding.
