“If there was a 100/100 I would have put this regarding Rick! He is just amazing.

Rick actually did not know this, but we actually based our wedding around him so he could be our photographer. I stumbled across Rick when I was looking up elopement packages and instantly fell in love with his photos and knew he was the right fit for us. I instantly wrote Rick an email and he replied so quickly with such enthusiasm and warmth, I knew he was our guy.

From our very first email, leading up to our big day day Rick was responsive and to be honest, I had nothing I needed to follow up on as Rick was proactive in his emails, as if he knew what I was going to ask before I even did. Out of all the suppliers I felt 100% confident in Rick. He sent emails informing us of what needed to be done and even sent an email of some tips to think of before the big day which was a huge lifesaver. He was personable and absolutely placed his personality into his emails.

On the day, Rick did not disappoint. When he arrived he was enthusiastic and just a part of our crew. He was like a silent ninja, taking snaps without you even noticing. In the end, Rick captured by far the most amazing photos I have ever seen. He honestly captured the day so perfectly. Every single guest commented on how amazing Rick was, how he was found capturing all these personable and beautiful moments throughout the day without you even realising it. I was tossing up about getting a video made on the day or not, however upon seeing the photos from Rick, I feel he told the story so perfectly through his photos that a video is not needed.

Rick also made us feel so comfortable. Shane and I are nervous at the best of times when photos are being taken of us, but he brought out the model in us both! 😉 It must have been his boom box that he carries to play music and creates a fun atmosphere.

Rick you have an amazing eye, amazing personality and a passion that just shines through the work you do. Every time we look at the photos, we are overwhelmed with emotion because you just captured every perfect moment. Rick, Shane and I honestly cannot thank you enough for capturing our day so beautifully. We are beyond happy!!!”
