Engagement Photography

I couldn't have been happier with Michael's photography skills and planning. Since I am from Ohio, trying to plan a surprise proposal in a town I had only been once before was tough, but Michael helped me every step of the way. From the beautiful location, to setting up the surprise photoshoot and then to the amazing memories he was able to capture! These are photos that will be with us forever and we couldn't be more grateful. The photo quality was fantastic and he worked with us throughout the shoot to insure we were able to capture the special time in such a beautiful way. If you are looking for a quality photographer who truly loves what thet does for a living, I couldn't recommend anyone more than Michael!

My son had photos done with Michael, can’t really put into words what an incredible job he did! Ryan is still talking about it a week later! He is so creative and talented and he captured exactly what Ryan was trying to achieve! He went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Literally cannot day enough GOOD about him!!

We recently hired Michael Rischer for my daughter's senior pictures. The photos turned out as lovely as we hoped. He is clearly skilled and experienced in the field. It was extra nice to see our daughter go from being someone nervous of having her photos taken to quickly enjoying herself and being more confident in front of the camera. We highly recommend Michael Rischer Photography!

Michael Rischer and his work are outstanding! Incredibly talented and kind photographer. His work quality, professionalism, punctuality, responsiveness, creative energy, and the beauty of the photos - they are all just what I was hoping for and more. I had photos taken for my book, yoga website and my birthday, and I couldn’t be happier! Any occasion, any purpose, his intuition will know how to make it awesome.

Michael and Crystal were fantastic. They were very quick to respond to any questions I had and offered suggestions for preparing for the photo shoot. Michael worked very hard to get my daughter and her friend comfortable for their senior photos. I would highly recommend them!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It is fair. It’s calculated by the hour but is not being to strict with it. The result is what matters. Customer satisfaction can’t always be put on a schedule. Things happen in life. Further, the shooting session itself is only half the job. Before the shooting is a lot of research involved. Than the shoot, than the processing, than the editing. As of now, my services are below market value.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First understanding their needs and wants. Their reasoning behind what they envision. Getting a feeling of who they are. Second I offer different options. Evaluating, giving ideas, working with the customer to either create a concept, inspire, or take the lead for the costumer that still tries to figure it out or simply accomplish the needs of the customer that knows what he wants. Third I accomplish the mission. There is a lot more to photography than just pushing a button. 4th providing a link with images 5th editing their selections 6th delivering final products plus extras.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Professional international model since 1997. Lived and worked in all major capitals of the world that have a market for fashion and commercial modeling. I’ve represented and advertised for major designer brands, major leading corporations, high end resorts, real estate and yachting. I’ve acted for TV commercials for brands like LG, Volkswagen, Mercedes and so many more. I understand what it is required and needed when it comes to advertising a product, a service, an industry and such. I educate and coach anyone that needs a picture taken on how to bring forth a genuine smile, a real felt expression. I capture the emotion, the intent. My experience and my continuing education in my field of photography in front and behind the camera are a powerful mix. Plus, my eye for detail, my creativity and my experience bring forth the best out of anything and anyone. You either have it, or you don’t. Expensive equipment and technical school class knowledge is by far not enough.
