Paul Rich has a natural gift for capturing real moments. Known for his ability to put his subjects at ease, he uses an artist’s sense of composition with a technician’s knowledge of light. Paul has a talent for quietly capturing the lovely tender vignettes that will evoke the feeling of your event for years to come.
Paul pursued wedding photography at the early age of 13. He began working as a photographer’s assistant, photographed his first wedding by the age of 18, and earned his degree in photography at Bard College in New York.
Paul is an award-winning member of The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and My Portland Photographer lists him as one of the top photographers in Portland. He is a regular contributor to such wedding sites as Style Me Pretty, DIY Bride, WeddingWire, Kiss My Tulle, and Style Unveiled. His wedding images have been published in magazines ranging from Portland Monthly’s Bride & Groom and Martha’s Vineyard Island Weddings to Hong Kong Wedding Magazine’s “All About Wedding.” Recent destination wedding assignments include such locations as Kauai, Oahu, St Lucia, Cancun, Newport, Tucson, and Martha’s Vineyard.
