A renown photographer once said ”Photography is an affair of the heart” I work passionately to tell love stories that are beautiful, cohesive, and authentic. I enjoy observing the small nuances, tiny gestures, subtle glances that capture raw emotion and romantic moments.
Yet, I am not just another guy with a camera. I study and master modern photography techniques so that my clients are guaranteed polished and sophisticated images that they are proud to hang on their walls for the world to see!
You can relax while I capture your story with warmth, sensitivity, and humor. I promise we will have fun together! Get ready for a fun and simple experience that blends seamlessly into your day.

Couldn't Ask for More!
We did both our engagement shoot with Ricke and then our Wedding Day and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! He made us feel comfortable and put us at ease from the beginning. He was great at capturing our best angles and had an eye for finding places that would give us a beautiful setting. Ricke was able to give gentle guidance for how we should pose for some shots (We’re not models after all!)Sent on 05/17/2019
What I really liked were his creative ideas for capturing the moment - like the way he could simulating rain falling (without getting us wet!) and getting drone footage of the wedding day! Nowadays almost everything has been done by a wedding photographer, but he had some genuinely unique ideas. On the Wedding Day he remembered the specific shots of family we had requested, which was a load off of my mind! Throughout the process for both days he was incredibly responsive and clear on the scope of work, pricing, etc. and we got our photos back to us faster than we had expected. It took me weeks to decide which photos were my favorites, but we loved all of them and now have several stunning photos framed to remind us of the happiest day of our lives! I would definitely recommend!

Stop looking and BOOK HIM NOW!!
I thoroughly searched through literally hundreds of photographers. I was a tad, ok - extremely! - picky when it came to my big day and the type of photos I wanted to walk away with!Sent on 04/29/2019
Before finding Ricke, I spoke with many talented, top of the line photographers, frankly I had a difficult time doing business with them.
When I first spoke to Ricke he was instantly so accommodating and willing to help out with ideas and brainstorming, even prior to hiring him! He was unfailingly responsive and honest about what was feasible and how to best achieve our vision and more! We really appreciated that he didn’t charge for surprise “extras” like so many others did, everything was straightforward and easy to navigate. Ricke is a very laid back yet creative guy, he has a sense of humor that helps you relax and actually look natural, happy, and GOOOOD in your photos! I have to say, Ricke blew away our expectations and we couldn’t be happier! When we got our images back, nearly every photo we said was our “favorite” It was impossible to choose because there were just so many gorgeous, authentic, and unique images!
So stop researching and just book book book! I promise you won’t regret it! Ricke - we love you and we are forever grateful!
