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!

You are a talented and accommodating photographer. Booking you and your team was very simple and throughout the lead-up to our wedding you were clear and efficient. On the day, you and your team were unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone you came across, and made us and all the guests feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Your team tried the best to accommodate the guests, our family and our demand without complaints. You are great talent for capturing a feeling in an image. You delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories despite the occasionally gloomy weather on the day. We were particularly impressed with the shots taken at the rooftop of Excelsior Hotel. I’m sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.
