Richel is an absolute GEM of a human!! I booked her last minute for both my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner and cannot wait for the next big event! She did everything in her power to capture all my special moments and make my overall vision/esthetic come to life. She really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and is SO easy to get along with. Literally everyone loved her so much, she feels like family now. She’s super sweet, funny, personable and knows how to rally a group to get the job done! I could not recommend her enough and I’m so excited to hear she’ll be photographing my friends wedding next year! Book her ASAP, you will not be disappointed!

Richel made my husband and I feel authentically ourselves throughout the shoot. Her personality is very welcoming and it made us put our guard down which translates into our photos. From the moment of meeting, she was nothing but kind and graceful with us all. My family had so many compliments after the ceremony on how patient, sweet and directive Richel was with such a big crowd of people. She is a gem, a true professional. Our photos came out beautiful and it was all thanks to Richel’s amazing skills and personality.

Richel is a professional and super talented photographer. She captures every single moment of the event. For my wedding, she made sure our needs were met and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and get as many different pictures as we could! She also made sure to get the pictures to us quickly. Love her work and can’t wait to work with her again.

Richel was incredible. She made it very comfortable to be in front of the camera and made us laugh to get natural candid photos. She’s really nice and knows what she’s doing.

I really admire and inevitably appreciated Richel’s eye for capturing the scenery and lighting! She has a way of translating feeling and emotion into a tangible memory. I will treasure these pictures with my newborn daughter for the rest of my life.. Richel captured a seemingly small moment but in a way that shows how life is made up of these beautiful “small moments.”

Richel is the absolute best! Our pictures turned out amazing and she’s incredibly talented at capturing everyone in their best light. From making scheduling hassle free to ensuring that we didn’t have a hair out of place, we had such a fun and relaxing time with her!

As someone who typically feels uneasy in front of a camera and does not enjoy being photographed, it was a relief to have an experienced photographer who made the experience as fun and un-intimidating as possible. The entire process was comfortable yet professional, and I cannot recommend Richel enough for your photography needs - she is truly talented!
