Richard took pictures of my son's proposal to his girlfriend, which was a surprise for her. He stayed in communication with me throughout the day, arrived on time and did a great job blending in so it remained a surprise. After the proposal he took them around to get some beautiful pictures, we are very satisfied with his work.Dec 10, 2018Verified
Richard was very patient and understanding because my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING but tske pictures.. He took his time and worked with us..Aug 8, 2017VerifiedReal Class Photography's reply
It was a pleasure doing business with you! Though it wasn't the best time of day to be at the beach and the kids weren't all that excited about posing for photos, I'm glad that I got some really good pictures of all of your family together.
Richard arrived punctually and is very easy going. He came with his hand held cannon camera, and did not bring additional lighting with him. It turns out he did not need equipment or special lighting. He did not direct much, and we chose our poses for ourself. However, his laid back demeanor was great for our family because we liked taking charge of the types of photos we captured. It gave us a sense of control over what was at first uncomfortable as we didn’t know how to pose. Over time, we figured out what worked best. Richard followed us as we figured it out. He was with us for almost 2 hours on Friday and we paid $150, and got our final edited photos by Tuesday. He was very accommodating and flexible. I recommend Richard for an affordable, easy going photographer, for a family that enjoys deciding their own angles and places for photos. If you want a highly strict/ serious/ directing photographer, do not go with Richard! If you want a laid back experience where you control much of the shoot, definitely hire Richard! We will hire him again for next year’s photos as he is good at capturing candid family moments. Thank you, Richard! We love our photos.Nov 26, 2018Verified
