Richard was great! He photographed our annual convention and took headshots for some of our attendees. He was very flexible with our schedule, considering we only wanted certain events photographed throughout multiple days. Also, he was friendly and able to make our attendees feel comfortable having their pictures taken. We are very happy with his work!

I contacted about 5 photographers to take our wedding photos at Laguna Beach. Richard was by far the most responsive one. We hired him 4 months in advance. He has such great communication skills. He let me know if I had any questions or concerns from them until the wedding, he would make himself available. When the event was a week or so away, he contacted me to just reconfirm location, time, and parking. He showed up on time and ready to work in the late afternoon. He is so professional with the best outgoing personality. He has a great sense of humor and so easy to work with. We really enjoyed our time with him on our wedding day. He added happiness and joy to our special day. He had great ideas where to take pictures. He walked the grounds to find the best places. He has a great eye for detail and poses. Our pictures are outstanding!! It was a little windy at the beach. A few photos needed wisps of hair edited out. He kindly did the ones we needed edited to make the pictures perfect to frame. I can’t say enough kind words about Richard. I highly recommend him for every event!

Richard was great! He’s a super nice guy and really knows what he’s doing. We heard comments all throughout our event about how much people enjoyed interacting with him. He responded well to our needs while also bringing his own ideas to improve the night. We’ll definitely go with him again for our future LA area photography needs!

Richard was a joy to work with and his photos were even better! My husband and I were so impressed with how well Richard was able to capture our one year anniversary party and all our guests. Richard was able to be a part of the party while shooting photos and getting the best shots to memorialize such a wonderful event. Communication was seamless and he helped with any questions or issues we had every step of the way, before, during and after the party. We received our photos edited soon after the event and they turned out amazing! 10/10 stars, highly recommend. Thank you Richard!!!

After contacting several photographers to photograph my Dad's 90th birthday party, I selected Richard because of his responsiveness, diverse portfolio and personality. All guests loved him and he delivered tons of wonderful photos. I highly recommend him and plan to use him again as photography needs arise.
