Rick was the BEST photographer EVER and you should hire him for many reasons. First, he was extremely responsive to all emails and phone calls. Second, the price was very reasonable and he worked with us to keep the pricing within our budget. Third and best part was his enthusiasm and passion for photography and flexibility/receptiveness to my ideas. He integrated the props I wanted and even thought of new poses on the fly with the props I brought. His passion showed when we were taking first look photos as you could see his excitement. The outcome was very fun and unique photos including standard wedding photos. We loved this because he was able to capture the emotion and our personalities in the photos. We were amazed at his previous work when we hired him and were blown away (and all of our friends and family also) with the photos that he took of our wedding. All of the photos were amazing and he made me look beautiful (very important for a girl). Fourth, he completed our wedding photos in 2.5 weeks.... over 1000 photos! Not only was his work unique and amazing, he was extremely fun to work with and he finished the work quickly for a good price. What is not to like? You should hire him, we definitely recommend him!!!!!

Great photos, even better price!
Rick was about half the price as other photographers I was looking at and had just as good quality. He's fast at responding to emails, arrived promptly on time during our wedding, and delivered my photos in 3 weeks! They all look great and I'm going to have a hard time choosing which photos to print out!

Awesome, creative, and super fun
Rick was an amazing photographer for our wedding. We initially chose him because his photos are just so vibrant, full of color and life, exactly how we wanted our wedding to feel. After we met him, we found he’s also a very fun guy always with a smile on his face, and very professional. He responds very quickly, takes the initiative to provide help wherever he can, and is very organized.
He's got a very creative mind and it really shows in how his photography tries to paint a picture. He's able to take everyday mundane elements in our surroundings (like mirrors, balconies, etc) and make them into amazing artistic shots. He’s also not afraid to be bold and do whatever it takes for a great shot. One of my most memorable moments was when we were taking shots in downtown and a guy drove by in a classic American convertible car that looked amazing. Rick immediately went up to the guy and asked if he’d let us sit in the driver seat to take some photos. We ended up getting some amazing pictures that was completely out of my expectations. I think this shows that Rick really cares about making the day fun for everyone and doing what it takes to get great pictures and memories.
Rick Takagi Photography Price Rates
Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! How does a 1 hour engagement session sound? This is typically 400.00 but it's included with all of my packages for the next week. We'll meet up in the Kirkland/Bellevue area and spend some time together. Engagement sessions are fun because it's relaxed and we can just stroll around and take some great photos.
