Karen provided a great environment for our photo shoot from top to bottom. We had a complex problem and she was eager to tackle it with class and professionalism. Her equipment, studio, and communication was all top notch. If you're on the fence - at least give her a call.Dec 23, 2016VerifiedKaren L Richard Photography's reply
Thank you so much Will! It was a real pleasure working with you and your team and a thoroughly enjoyable shoot - hopefully to first of many!
This was my first headshot photo shoot, and I couldn't have asked for a more guiding and humorous photographer! She was great at getting me to express genuine emotions, and sifted through the numerous photos taken in order to find the most expressive ones!May 23, 2017Verified
Great professional to work with! Multiple headshot options at a reasonable price. Quick turnaround on the retouched images. Would recommend Karen to anyone looking for professional photos.Apr 22, 2017VerifiedKaren L Richard Photography's reply
Thank you Ryan, it was a pleasure meeting you!
Karen took some head shots for me. She was very professional and friendly, made me feel really at ease during the shoot. And the photos she got are amazing. Although I'm sure she took hundreds, she selected a dozen or so of the best for me to look at, which made it easier for me to choose. When I went back to ask her for a few more different looks, she quickly made that happen for me - and I learned she had a great eye - because none of them were as good as the one's she first presented. The entire experience was good from start to finish and I'm very happy with the end result. Can't recommend her more highly.May 8, 2017VerifiedKaren L Richard Photography's reply

Karen was a pleasure to work with. Her studio was beautiful and she helped me feel at ease in front of the camera. The end result was just what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back the next time I need photos!May 23, 2017VerifiedKaren L Richard Photography's reply
