Stunning pictures

Rick was so enthusiastic and excited about doing our wedding shoot from our first conversation it actually made me excited! That really made him stand out to me compared to others I spoke with. His price was very low in my opinion for the type of pictures and work we got back. He is very fast to get back to you with any questions or schedule a time to chat if needed. Our wedding was during a heat wave in an old building with no AC. I was so worried what the pictures were going to look like. We had sweat dripping everywhere! He shot for the entire 6 hours we hired him for in extremely hot conditions and we got back 400 beautiful pictures that I couldn't be happier with. He doesn't say much while taking pictures just works away lol The pictures captured were staged and unstaged, close and far away shots, some black and white but mostly color. The way he uses the sun and scenery even down to the shadows was exceptional! Everytime I look through our gallery I find new favorites and fall in love all over again. Thank you so much Rick! His talent is amazing and you won't be disappointed! I hope to hire him again!

Rick Rocks!

We booked a session with Rick for our elopement at Golden Gardens. He was so fun to work with day of and we absolutely love all the photos he took. They really capture the happiness of the day, our personalities, and love for one another. We can't wait to find some other excuse to have Rick take photos of us, thanks again for being such a fun part of our day!

Timeless Wedding Photos at Deception Falls

We can't thank Rick enough for perfectly capturing our wedding day. When COVID-19 altered our plans, Rick was very flexible but also helpful in keeping us on a track that would still make our day just as special with a private picture session after our ceremony. He was creative and spontaneous in our last minute location change and it shows in our pictures how much fun we had.

We've had the pleasure of working alongside Rick during a lovely July wedding. Rick was so friendly and professional. He's a great communicator, and it was very easy to share the space and coordinate capturing main events with him ... not to mention, his photography is absolutely beautiful!!! We hope to see Rick on events we work in the future!
