We had a wonderful experience working with Ray. He was very professional, polite, and very easy to work with. As you can image, a wedding can be stressful day, but he has such a talent for us feel more comfortable, and easing our nerves when we needed. We feel like he really clicked with our family and friends. We were also very pleased with how he was able to capture the moments in time. He's got a great eye. There were so many amazing shots, with great angles and perspectives. Tip: if he asks you to do something or hold a pose, do it! Those simple requests that made such amazing pics. We also had a wedding video which was really great. He did a fantastic job piecing various clips throughout the day. Overall, we could not be any happier. Everything was great, the pics, the video, the experience... Ray did an outstanding job. He's got a lot of cameras and equipment; he's not going to miss an opportunity for a good shot.Sent on 09/22/2014

A Wedding Photographer with an Artist's Touch and Great Personality!
Ray is, quite simply, the best in the business. If you look at his website, Facebook, or Instagram pages, you will fall in love with his work. He is as adept at taking traditional wedding photos (the stock family shots or dance floor photos we are all familiar with) as he is at taking artistic editorial-style photos. Indeed, some of his photos are so stunningly gorgeous that you will think you're looking at a painting. His photographs tell a story; they capture a moment. And some of them will even take your breath away. What more could you want on your wedding day?Sent on 12/23/2018
We are so in love with some of our wedding photos that we plan to use them as artwork in our new home, and we are totally not those kind of people. We did our first look on one of two gorgeous spiral staircases at our wedding venue, the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC, which is both a luxury hotel and national historic landmark. The photographs that Ray took of us from atop the staircase looking down are at once beautiful, memorable wedding shots and incredible architectural photography (a style of photography we love to display in our home).
Ray's talent is matched by the warmth of his personality, which is evident from the first time you speak with him. He's devoted to giving you the end product you're looking for. He's proud of his work, and he has a tremendous amount of respect for his clients. He will go the extra mile for you, even if it means laying on the cold ground in a puddle of dirty rainwater to get a beautiful shot of you and your significant other (that's not an exaggeration; he did this during our engagement shoot in DC). And, while, we did not ask Ray to jump into the Potomac River to capture a particular photo, you will see from his social media accounts that he has actually jumped into bodies of water before to take gorgeous photos for his couples. I know few other photographers who would go to such lengths for their clients. But for Ray, his couples are much more than just his clients, they are also his artistic muses. He wants your photographs to be as beautiful as you want them to be.
Ray is, not surprisingly, a hot ticket, so if you love his work, and want to hire him for your engagement shoot or wedding, reach out to him ASAP. You won't regret it. I cannot have imagined anyone else capturing our wedding day. We are over the moon happy with our end result. You will be, too.

Ray, I dont know where to start. Literally the most passionate person I have personally met. He went above and beyond for my fiance and I. Due to a family emergency we couldnt do our pre- wedding shoot until a week before the wedding, Ray made sure we had a video and that it was PERFECT. Ray and his team stayed up late nights editing our pre-shoot video so it was completed before the wedding day. Ray makes it his responsibility to make sure you will love the photos he takes, trust me you will not just love your photos you will LOVE your photos. Ray is very friendly and will definately make sure you are comfortable to make it a smooth process. I am so glad we received his services for out fairytale wedding and we plan on cherishing this relationship and plan on receiving his services for all of our future events! Can't wait for my wedding photos. We love you Ray. Shana &RickySent on 09/11/2018
