About Photos by Rich Burkhart

Photos by Rich Burkhart is a wedding photography company based in Savannah, Georgia. "Photojournalistic" is used by a lot of wedding photographers to describe their style of photography. Photojournalist is defined as "a journalist who communicates news by photographs." or "a photojournalist with a knack for capturing the decisive moment". By nature photojournalist tend to care more about the emotional content of the moment than they do about how pretty a picture is. They capture fleeting moments that are sometimes gritty and out of focus, but nonetheless important. Rich's style is often described as Photojournalistic/Artistic. He knows how to capture those special moments, while maintaining control over the lighting and composition.

Experience
Rich has dedicated more than half of his life to studying the art of photography. He graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Master's of Fine Arts in Photography. Before becoming a full time wedding photographer, he covered many major events and iconic personalities during a 14 year career as a photojournalist for a local newspaper. Some of the key skills he gained during his photojournalism career are the most valuable as a wedding photographer. The knack to quickly survey a location and pick out the most beautiful spots with the best light. Always attentive and watching for the next moment. The ability to work under pressure, in sometimes extreme lighting conditions, while never forgetting the human connection. Always working to make sure that no matter what, the couple is comfortable, relaxed, and thinking more about one another than about being photographed. Because at the end of the day that's really what photojournalism is all about. It's about sharing in the human experience. After all, photojournalists are historians- preserving moments in time for future generations to experience. Rich has more than 10 years of experience in the wedding photography industry.

    Best October Wedding Photos Ever

    AMAZING!!! I can’t even to begin to discribe how what a wonderful experience I had with Photos by Rich. My husband and I used them for our October wedding on Hilton Head Island. We were both so worried about the whole “production” of the photo process and if we would end up happy with the end results. However, we completely under estimated Rich!!! Not only were the photos completely BEAUTIFUL but the process was seamless! Rich was so easy to work with and made sure our photo needs were 100%. I would recommend him a thousand times over and plan to use him again for all my photo needs. I couldn’t have asked for better.... Photos by Rich is the BEST!!!!

    Rich--Don't even know where to start with this review other than you and your team are simply amazing! I have seen lots of wedding photos in my life but it takes a very special eye to be able to capture the love and emotion from the day. You far exceeded anything we could have imagined. Lexi and Matt have always said they weren't real comfortable in front of a camera but during their engagement session, you put them at ease. The day of the wedding you guys came in and did a tremendous job but you did not disrupt our day---it is like you were there but you weren't. The pictures and the video from the entire day will help us all to remember what a very special day we shared with our family and friends.
    If anyone if looking for the perfect fit please do not hesitate to contact Rich----he and his team will not disappoint you.
