Rick you are unbelievably great. Your images are stunning, and you caught them all without interrupting the wedding at all. All of our images are beautifully composed. These are all artbook shots, without a hint of cheese anywhere! I have many loves about the entire experience with you. Here are but a few: I love how you are a true photojournalist, not interrupting anything, ever! Many photogs claim to be photojournalists but then make you re-do the ring exchange after the ceremony. Our shots are all true and very special moments captured as they actually happened. And I love how flexible you are in working out options for us that we could afford. Thank you for that! And finally, I love the fact that you love shooting. You stayed through the whole party and dare I say looked like you were having fun. Please let me know if you need a reference as I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Dear Rick, I have one word to describe you and Cheryl: amazing! Photography was by far the most important aspect of our wedding and I spent months researching photographers for our destination wedding in Mexico. We wanted to capture the true essence of our day in a photojournalistic and modern style. You guys were absolutely the perfect fit! Not only are you an extraordinarily talented artist, but you and Cheryl have such amazing energy! I had no idea how important it really was to have someone there to not only take beautiful pictures, but to really help put you at ease. And you did all of that and more. We are so thankful for the way everything turned out and I am in love with my wedding pictures!

We love you, Rick. There is not enough room in this review to tell you how lucky and happy we were to find you. Not only are you an amazing photographer, but you are an awesome person. We had a blast hanging out with you the day after our wedding for our post nup shoot. You went above and beyond trying to capture our wedding weekend and did it well in the high heat and humidity.
