“Richard has an eye to capture a moment in its’ most natural, organic and expressive state.  His attention to detail that others may miss is a marvel upon itself and I take great pleasure in reviewing his albums as I find great solace, comfort, positivity and a true sense of serenity and inspiration from his work.  His degree of professionalism is par-none; he listens to you, works well with nature, adults, children or spur of the moment shots.  Richard helps define professionalism on a level I find missing in many others; his photography is as phenomenal as his work ethic and willingness to please.”  Aaron J.

Wedding Photography

“We enjoyed working with Richard as our wedding photographer! His willingness to work with us to plan our day, listen to our requests, and operate within the constraints that we had (including a large number of young, active kids), was impressive. We appreciated the low-key but high-quality approach he brought to his work and were pleased by his ability to blend into the event while capturing its special moments. We will treasure the photos that he took for many years to come.”  Christine C.
