Chris was so amazing to work with. Made everything so much fun. Even made my uncle smile which can be a difficult task! If you're going to splurge on something, definitely make it the thing that will last forever - the photos! We have only seen a few of our photos so far.. but if its any indication of whats to come, then he was better than we expected.

Chris Richards is the absolute best!!! We could not have been happier with our choice to have him photograph our wedding! We scheduled an engagement session with him several months before our wedding, which was so helpful in letting us get to know Chris and see how wonderful he is! He asked us right up front what we liked and did not like and what we were hoping to have our photos reflect about us and our relationship. He took us all over the Tucson Barrio, finding beautiful and unique spots for photos, giving us helpful and gentle feedback for posing, and telling us about Tucson history along the way. Chris made us feel very comfortable throughout the whole shoot and kept us laughing. We absolutely loved how our engagement pictures turned out! We could not have imagined things could get better from there...but they did! Chris surprised us and showed up at the rehearsal to get candid shots and to get to know our family and wedding party members. When the wedding day came, we felt so comfortable with him, which made our photos even more natural. He was such a calming presence on the busy day and helped keep things feeling light when they could have become stressful. Our family and friends loved Chris as much as we did and are still commenting on how awesome he is months later! He was present enough that everyone felt like they bonded with him, but discreet enough that he was not intrusive. He achieved the perfect balance! He went above and beyond - even climbing up on the roof of our venue at sunset to capture gorgeous pictures of the reception. Our wedding pictures were so much better than we even hoped they would be! They captured every moment that we hoped would be captured and they reflected everyone's best! We will always cherish the photos Chris Richards took and will be forever grateful for his professionalism, dedication, artistry, and support!

My husband and I first met Chris at my sister in law’s wedding. We weren’t even engaged at the time, but we knew right then that we wanted Chris to photograph our eventual wedding! We couldn’t be more happy with our choice. He did every bit as great of a job for our wedding as he did for my sister in law’s. He was even willing to travel to Phoenix, even though he’s based out of Tucson. Chris is clearly a professional who has been doing this for a while. He always does a great job getting you to relax and have fun during what can otherwise be some awkward posed photos. He was very conscious of the family dynamic, and made sure he got every shot we wanted—not that we needed to ask for much, because he was already so on top of it! He arrived well ahead of time and got right to work, knowing exactly what to shoot and when. We opted to do a “first look” and got all of our bridal party and family photos done before the ceremony (which was a huge time relief for us after the ceremony, as my husband and I got some time alone during our final photos after the ceremony), so he and his assistant were on their feet (or knees or stomachs or sides…they do whatever it takes to get the right angle!) for probably about ten hours. In my experience, the photographer really runs the day at a wedding, and I knew we were in good hands with Chris! We got a lot of compliments from our guests, and if our engagement photos are anything to go on, I know we’ll get a lot of amazing shots out of it!

You know how a picture is worth a thousand words? Chris Richards is a photographer with the same attribute. His skill as a photographer and the quality of his photos are so good that a thousand words might not be enough to describe them. I've had the pleasure of working with Chris for several years now, and his work never ceases to impress me. His eye for composition is unparalleled, and his ability to catch light is almost magical. Plus, he's a genuinely nice guy, full of wit and humor, and he usually winds up becoming friends with everyone at the wedding. But don't just take my words for it- just look at his photos for thousands more.
