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.

To John and his wonderful team, Thank you so much for your amazing work. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job at capturing the memories on our special day, just the way we liked. Thanks for being so understanding and completely flexible on the day. We were probably one of your most chaotic clients (we know that) but your team’s and your calm presence was exceptional. We never felt pressured for once on the day and you just went with flow. All the meetings I had with you before the wedding were informative. It was a great idea to have met you properly before the wedding. We absolutely love our videos and the pictures – they bring us back to the day every time we see them. I particularly love how they capture the happiness and emotions of our friends and families, they are priceless and we can’t wait to show them to our friends and families from overseas! John, sincerely thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable. Your creativity and special ability deserves to be recognized. I have no doubt recommending your service to all of my friends and families and I’m looking forward to future collaborations with you and your great team. Best wishes, Kate Chow

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.
