Oh Mr. Rick... Where do I begin?! I contacted you with a photo/task, that I thought was impossible but you proved otherwise! I sent this absolutely wonderful man, a photo of my husbands parents who had passed away when he was young. (13) they passed away 6 months apart. Due to my husband and his brothers being tossed around, the photo was seriously damaged. It was stuck to the glass, faded and so much more. Mr. Rick responded quickly and I explained that I wanted to do this as a surprise for my husband, I told him “I wanted to make my husband cry” and the one who ended up in tears was, me. Mr. Rick is a very talented man and a complete blessing. Soon I will give my husband this photo, that him and our children will be able to cherish for a very long time. I look forward to seeing my husbands face and reaction. Mr. Rick, I can’t thank you enough. You are truly a wonderful gift to this world. God made you so that you are to do wonderful things and you, my friend, have done something so wonderful. Thank you for everything. You have my permission to use these photos in anything, to show people what you can do. I love that you love this type of work. Your passion for this makes the experience, so exciting! Thank you, thank you, thank you!Mar 20, 2018VerifiedRaymond L.'s reply
Lindsey, I am honored by this review. It makes all the hard work worth it. Each image is a time machine, capable of bring us back to tat very moment, that very time. To be able to reach back and rescue a unique and only image of parents -people -almost lost forever, is a joy. Thanks so very much for your kind words. They mean a lot to me... Rick

I asked Rick for some professional photos. I traveled to his studio on the date agreed. Rick was on time and prepared to take the photos. I had a wonderful experience working with Rick, he made it fun! I got some great pictures, in a short time, for a great price! Thanks Rick.Jun 19, 2017VerifiedRaymond L.'s reply
Peggy was a delight! Came ready to work and found there was a whole lot of play. Wanted guidance and had good ideas herself!! Having high quality images is NOT having your teeth pulled :-) This new attorney is welcome back anytime. Thanks for the review. Rick

Abby is a highly talented young lady. She came for a full shoot wit a wide variety of ideas and requests. Together we worked out exactly what she wanted so I could make her look (and feel) her best. Thanks Abby and family!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is totally dependent on what my client needs and wants. Flexible. I just look expensive :-)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer a quick pre-session talk, either on the phone or in person so I can better understand the end results desired and to discuss some guidelines on dress and style so you end up with the very best. Everyone is ready that way so we can get it done efficiently and also HAVE FUN doing it!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly taking classes even after decades of experience. I like to grow. Growing feels good doesn't it?
