Second experience with this wonderful photographer!

Rich and Alicia photographed my wedding in April 2019. When my sister was planning her wedding, I promptly contacted Rich to see if he was available to photograph her wedding because they did such a great job with mine! Rich and Alicia are fantastic—they created a wedding day timeline for my sister to keep everyone on track and to ensure no photos were forgotten. Her photos are gorgeous! Rich and Alicia will not disappoint if you decide to use them!

It’s more than photography, it is an experience, it is Art

My husband and I found Rich by pure luck. We were visiting a church when booking our original date of our wedding and were told that his office was housed in the facility. We were also told how wonderful he was and encouraged to stop by. Rich welcomed us in, showed us some of his work: including the option of a wedding album with one of his packages and his new feature “Gif in a Jif”. We booked Rich and everything was amazing. He was super flexible when we had to navigate postponing our original 2020 wedding date. Last minute, when we realized we needed a second shooter, Rich quickly found us a second shooter, Susan, who was also fantastic. Needless to say, Gif in a Jif was a huge hit at our July 2021 wedding. We were delighted to find that after you send a photo to yourself, you also see the entire gallery which was both exciting and hilarious for the people who took triple takes. Our wedding photos came out absolutely beautiful. I had expressed to Rich and his assistant Alicia, who also is fabulous, that I had challenges when it came to photography and how I see myself in photos. Rich, Alicia, and Susan were all supportive and I felt absolutely amazing during and after the wedding day shoot. Highly recommend this fantastic company.

Amazing All Around

Rich photographed our engagement photos 2 years ago. He coordinated with my now Husband to arrange a beautiful surprise proposal. The photos turned out beautifully!

Fast forward 2 years and our original wedding plans were canceled due to Covid. We decide to have a very small wedding in Savannah, where we got engaged. We lucked out and Rich was available to document our day.

He was amazing! He was very organized, easy to work with and made the day fun! Honestly, I am so thankful for Rich and his talents. He not only took beautiful photos but made our special day easy and fun!

Rich is extremely talented and we highly recommend him and his photos! We can’t wait to hang up our new photos! All around a wonderful experience!
