About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My wife Linda and I are Ron Pradetto Photography and we have over 15 years of photography and six years of wedding photography experience. We offer professional, high quality photography. We take great pride in our attention to detail, quality of product, and work ethic we bring to each and every wedding we photograph. All of our packages includes: (2) EXPERIENCED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS Professional, high quality, full resolution images are provided in BOTH tiff and jpeg. (75) Custom designed “Thank You” cards Facebook posting and YouTube slide-show, if desired. As mentioned above, both Linda and I photograph throughout your wedding day to capture all of the day's special memories. Once the wedding day is over then our work just begins. We first sort through all of the images and choose those that will be provided to you. We then totally retouch all of the formal photos and significantly retouch all of the remaining images. Retouching includes color correcting and removing all harsh shadows. Then we arrange them in chronological order and placing them on flash drives for the tiff images and attractively designed DVDs for the jpeg images. The images are in high resolution with full printing rights granted to you with a letter provided. We also guarantee images to be shipped within three weeks of your wedding day.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the kind of photography that challenges you to capture special moments that will be otherwise lost forever. That is what originally attracted me to sports photography and that is what attracts me to wedding photography now. There are so many special moments throughout the wedding day so you have to be alert all day long constantly paying attention to everyone at the wedding. I call it “hunting for photos” and that is what I enjoy most. Of course I am always honored and humbled when I am chosen to photograph a wedding. It is a tremendous responsibility that I take very seriously. I embrace the challenges and pressures that come with photographing a wedding.

    We hired Ron Pradetto and his wife Linda for our wedding pictures a long time before our wedding date, April 29th, 2016. We found them on Thumbtack, and we picked them because they had almost all of my questions answered just through their introduction, which impressed me. Their official website was up to date with information and pictures as well. During the months of planning, any time I needed them or had a question for them, I would e-mail them, and received a reply very quickly. We had very good communication leading up to the wedding. April 29th came, and we had our wedding. We got through our indoor formal pictures in a timely manner, and then went outdoors for more shots. This is where I began to feel uncomfortable and afraid that I wouldn’t get all the shots I wanted. We did our party, and a combination of other photos, and then Ron and Linda wanted to do some of just me, as I had requested. They spent almost twenty minutes on one single pose of me with a parasol. I was getting restless, and that’s when my groom announced we had to leave for the reception. At that point, I started getting upset because aside from the formal pictures indoors, my groom and I had no pictures of just us at that point. I think they both picked up on that at this point, because they rushed us through a handful of shots in five minutes of just my groom and I before we really had to leave for our reception. We have both agreed that Ron and Linda need to work on their timing. We filled out a questionnaire that spelled out all of our timing and our desired shots and poses, and we expected them to be keeping track of that timing for us, but they didn’t. We received our pictures and thank you cards right when they said we would, about three weeks after the wedding. My groom and I reviewed them twice together, and again was disappointed that there were not many formal pictures of just us. We did get several very nice pictures from our first dance, and after that, there was few. We were also not very happy with a lot of the shots of the guests. Ron and Linda gave us several pictures of our guests who were taking pictures already, which seems redundant to take a picture of people taking pictures. Since these people were looking in a different direction at another camera, it seems like low quality to take a picture of picture taking. A lot of those shots we won’t be sharing because they aren’t very good. Overall, I will say that while our experience with Ron and Linda was good and personable, we are disappointed by the lack of pictures of just my groom and I prior to the candid ones everyone gets from the reception, and the time frames we gave.

    I feel we need to clarify some of the issues brought up in this review as it calls into question our professionalism. The bride states that we didn't manage the time available for the park photos. According to the conversation we had with her two days before the wedding we were to have an hour, between 5:00 and 6;00 pm at this park. Because no one knew how to get there and we walked, we didn't start photographing until 5:11. We proceeded to photograph the group photos she requested with the understanding that when we were finished with them we would have almost an half hour with the bride and groom alone. At approximately 5:35 the groom insisted that they needed to leave. We talked them into at least a couple of photos with just the two of them. The last photo we took was at 5:43 and they had left the park by 5:45. Given the time we were at this park, there is no way we spent more than a couple of minutes on any one pose, much less the 20 minutes stated. In regards to the photos at the reception, we take an array of photos to show the action taking place. If there are a lot of people are standing around taking selfies or having others take pictures on their cell phone we will provide a few of these. They received many shots of their guest, posed and otherwise. They were provided hundreds of photos, not all of them can be expected to be posed or full of action. They received an accurate representation of their day. Linda Pradetto, Ron Pradetto Photography

    Ron and Linda of Ron Pradetto Photography provided me with exactly what I was looking for on my wedding day! Professional, creative, friendly, and very good at what they do. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality photography at a reasonable price. My husband and I were both very impressed.

    Ron and Linda were wonderful to work with. They made my husband and I feel at ease in front of the camera. Everyone has commented on how beautiful our pictures turned out. Also, the turn around time is amazingly fast. The wedding was August 22. They had preview shots up on Facebook by August 25 and a slideshow by August 26. I can't believe I received my thank you note cards on September 8 and my completed DVD on September 9. I have friends who married last year and still don't have their pictures. I would highly recommend Ron and Linda. I also feel their prices are very reasonable and competitive and that they offer a high quality product!!!!!

    Ron and Linda photographed our wedding. They were so easy to work with. We took engagement photos about 8 months before out event. They really made us comfortable in getting our picture taken and working with them. Ron and Linda were very easy to get a hold of and were always on time, if not early. They made my wedding day go so smoothly. They listened to input from my husband and I and were just a joy to work with. The photos from the wedding came so quickly. I was married June 13 and had my photos by July 2! The photos were excellent. I could not be happier with Ron and Linda and highly recommend them!

    Ron and Linda did an awesome job, they did our engagement, my bridal shots, as well as our wedding pictures. They are very personable, and being a person who doesn't like pictures taken of herself they made us feel so comfortable. Not to mention their pictures are amazing. We would so recommend them to use!! So thankful for Ron and Linda!

    Ron Pradetto and his wife Linda did an incredible job with our engagement and wedding photos. The hourly rate was reasonable and the quality was above and beyond for what we paid. They were professional, on time, and always ready to accommodate any requests. They gave excellent advice during the entire process and were very thorough from start to finish. We felt comfortable being photographed by them and enjoyed having them at our reception as well. We have received so many compliments from friends and family about the photos that they took. I cannot recommend them enough!

    We just had Ron do our wedding pictures Aug 2,2014. They were great!! His wife Linda and him were so fun to work with. They went above and beyond to capture every move. I sent them some picture ideas I had seen online and he made everyone of them happen for me. I was a little hesitant at first about booking someone online like this, but I wouldn't change my decision on hiring him. You will not find a better photographer that will make your day seem so effortless for such a great price. Check out is Facebook page and you can see his work, and some sneak peeks of my wedding!!

    We had a wonderful experience on our wedding day with Ron and his wife Linda. They did everything they could to make it a beautiful day for me and my wife. Prior to the ceremony, we wanted to take a photo tour of the city of Pittsburgh. We had our locations picked out. Ron and Linda readily agreed to travel with us in the limo and take pictures at each location. Ron was friendly and courteous and arrived early, catching the "buying of the bride" Ukrainian tradition. Despite wearing a suit, he did not hesitate to sit on the ground to get a good shot. Now that's dedication! There was an additional challenge due to the fact that the "tour" was done around midday, meaning the sun was almost directly above us, making good outside shots difficult. Still, Ron managed to get plenty of good pictures. Up on a Mt. Washington observation deck, we also used some props provided by Linda, including a beautiful wooden frame and the "Mr." and "Mrs." signs. After the tour, we traveled to the ceremony/reception location, and Ron and Linda continued to work their magic. We got the DVDs with pictures almost as soon as we returned from our 2-week honeymoon. There were about a 1000 photos. Some of them were retouched and had effects added (e.g. black-and-white, fading white borders). We really like the quality of the work and may end up ordering the wedding album. Ron and Linda really went above and beyond what we expected from a wedding photographer. We recommend them!

    I was very impressed with Ron and his wife Linda from the first email. The response for a quote and an explanation of what that quote included was a matter of hours.( Here we are with one week before my stepdaughters wedding and the quote hasn't changed). RON contacted me by phone as nd we talked for 45 minutes . He listen to our wants and needs and explained what his services included. There was no pressure and no sales pitch. I explained to Ron that they had to meet my my stepdaughter . Both Ron and Linda came to my house (75 miles away) at our convenience to discuss everything. They were prompt and very congenial and after showing examples of their work and addressing all our questions made us a 'll feel at ease. No pressure and no phoney sales baloney. They even went to the outdoor wedding site in the rain to see and lay out their positions for photos. I will follow up on here after the wedding. But I can say so far that if you want affordable photography and very caring people then Ron and Linda are for you. P.S. check out Ron Pradetto Photography Facebook page to see his work.

    Ron and Linda took our wedding photos. They came to our home months before the wedding to see the location of the ceremony and stayed in close contact as the wedding got near. All of the photos were beautiful. They are a very professional couple and it is obvious they love what they do as it reflects in the photos they take. We couldn't have been happier with the job they did.

    I would certainly recommend Ron Pradetto Photography if you are looking for a wonderful photographer! He and his wife Linda were incredible while they were shooting our wedding photos- they made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and they captured every element of our special day from details and candids to formal portraits of us and our families. Our pictures are absolutely stunning and I know I will love looking at them forever. I cannot recommend Ron Pradetto Photography enough!
