the experience



My goal is to take photographs that really showcase your unique personality within the relationship. Without the eyes of outsiders, it's just you and your honey doing what you do best- being in love! When you look back on these photos, I want you to remember how you felt that day, the corny joke whispered in your ear to get that genuine smile, and all the kisses that made you laugh. Sure, we'll take some posed shots to make sure we've crossed our Ts and dotted our i's, but the majority of our time together will be fun and unscripted.. And don't worry! I'll be there every step of the way to make sure you look your best!

It's not everyday you get to take photos with a professional behind the camera. Let's make the most of our time together and pick out a beautiful spot, whether it's an old favorite or exciting and new.  This is YOUR love story, and I'm just here for the ride.  Wherever your heart takes you, i'll pack my bag and meet you there. The beach at sunset? Count me in.  Hiking your favorite trail? DOUBLE IN (i love hiking!) Catching a drink at a local spot or even just roaming the streets of your hometown- wherever you go i'll be there with you to save those moments to last you a lifetime. 

The magical process

After our call together, I will send you a proposal that lists out the package that best fits your needs, a payment plan, and photography contract.  If you feel we are a good fit for each other, you'll sign the contract and send the deposit and we will be officially booked together for your big day!

making it official


The booking is complete, and we've secured your date. Up next is to plan your engagement session!  The engagement session is my favorite part of the process as I get to capture your love in a relaxed setting without any tight timelines we need to stick to. You'll be able to get a feel for my shooting style so that you are complete pros for your wedding day! 

Engagement session


This is it, you're getting MARRIED! We will be totally ready to take on the day and create some beautiful memories of your love for each other. Relax, have fun, and celebrate! I'll take care of leading you throughout your day so you don't have to worry about a thing.

have more questions?

I kindly ask you to refrain from re-editing or adding filters to my work.  If you have a specific look in mind please let me know and I will tell you if it aligns with my style of photography.

can i re-edit/filter the photos?

You will not see a watermark on your photos. In return I ask you to credit me by tagging me @richeldiazphoto if you post anything on social media. If you invite guests into your gallery, they will see a watermark and have the option of purchasing the high resolution download without the watermark

do you use a watermark?

No, I do not offer rain dates. If the weather is terrible the date of your session, we can reschedule at no charge for a future date. I am a believer that a little bit of rain or snow can actually make for even more beautiful photos. Life is unexpected and your love will shine through any weather conditions. The focus of my images is your love story- not the location we've decided to take your photos.  

do you offer rain dates?

For WEDDINGS: The payments are split into 30%/30%/40%. The first 30% is a non-refundable deposit. The 2nd 30% is due halfway. The final 40% is due on the wedding.
For  ALL OTHER photography: 50% due at signing to hold the date. 50% due  on day of event.
Currently accepting payments via CC or Zelle (

what does the payment process look like?

Every session is different  and therefore I do not promise a fixed number of images. Weddings can have anywhere between 500-1000+ images depending on your coverage, and timeline. For engagement /couple sessions that number is at least 50 images.

how many photos can i expect?
