Paul Rich has a natural gift for capturing genuine moments. His photography career began at the early age of 13 when he began working as an assistant for a wedding and Bar Mitzvah photographer in the Boston area. His interest in the field grew, and Paul pursued photography in high school and received a degree in Photography from Bard College in NY.
In 1998, Paul fit as many of his belongings as would fit in his car and drove cross-country in pursuit of adventure. He arrived in Portland, OR and began assisting a commercial photographer in town and began accepting assignments on his own in 2005. In 2007, Paul Rich Studio was officially launched with a focus on wedding photography. This led to portrait assignments, professional headshots, real estate photography, events, and all sorts of other avenues. While the typical advice for photographers is to focus your area of interest, I always wanted to broaden my sights (kinda funny right?).
So in lieu of being a wedding photographer, or a headshot photographer, or this or that, I have opted to offer my services to a larger audience. Being a business owner myself, I understand the need for quick turnaround times, quality work, dependability, punctuality, and clear and concise communication. My goal is to provide you with the exact images you need within the timeframe you need them. Consistently.
Paul Rich has a growing diverse client list that includes: Marriott, Nike, Disney, Genentech, Fujimi, The Linux Foundation, and many others. His wedding images have been published in magazines ranging from Portland Monthly’s Bride & Groom to Martha's Vineyard Island Weddings. His destination wedding assignments include places like: Kauai, Oahu, St Lucia, and Martha's Vineyard.
