Hi there, i'm richel

I am such a sucker for those emotional moments in life. Anything really that brings people together makes my heart so warm. I started doing photography when I was still just a kid, I found so much joy and excitement in being able to freeze a moment in time and look back on it in more detail than I even remembered. I took this passion one step further and went to art school for photography at Rutgers, Mason Gross where I graduated with a BFA in photography and media. After 4 years of being in a fine art setting, I missed the human connection I felt photographing my friends' and family’s happy life moments so now i’m here :) 

Hiking, especially to a beautiful view on top of a mountain, eating all the good food I can all over the world, and photographing all those memories are what drive me. I love dairy even though dairy doesn’t like me (lactose intolerant), coffee and tea are both addictingly delicious in my book, and I'm definitely not a morning person but would LOVE to be. Nothing is quite as good as those quiet early hours as the sun is coming up. I live with my boyfriend, Steve and our 2 cats, Mochi and Willow! I’m based in New Jersey and am open, scratch that, dying to travel anywhere this passion might take me!

I'm so glad you're here!
