Brian does AMAZING work and makes it so much fun! My husband and I just celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary and are SO thankful for all of the special moment Brian has captured, from the fun weekend in Chicago for our engagement pictures until the VERY end of our reception (he actually stayed until well after the band was finished playing!!!) We opted out of hiring a videographer and have NO regrets because Brian documented our day beautifully and captured every single little detail and moment. I definitely look forward to working with him in the future for all of our special moments as our family and love grows!!

Besides the AMAZING photos, we Brian has such a clear love and passion for his job, and it shines through in his actions. For example, most photographers give you a set "8 hour window" and you decide when they come and leave based on their 8 hours. Not Brian! Brian showed up at the hotel where we were getting ready at 7am and he was on of the last people to leave our reception that ended at midnight. Again, no moment was left uncaptured. He was there for everything- which was important to me and also very much appreciated! I also believe that your photographer is such a huge part of your day- they are involved in nearly every moment and if they are pushy, bossy, or rude, they have the potential to ruin your day. I can honestly say that we LOVED having Brian be part of our big day. We loved having him around- he's an awesome person who is so lively and fun. Many people in the wedding party even made a point to come to us and tell us how much they liked simply being around him! And to me, having someone enjoyable accompany you for the entire day is very important- and Brian is that guy! He is simply fantastic. We feel that he is not only our photographer, but he is our friend. He is just wonderful. I would give him 10 stars if I could. He is the best and he will be the only photographer we ever use!!! I can't wait to see where the future takes him, because he is truly something special.

We asked a friend of ours - a professional photographer in L.A. - to find a local photographer for us online who would offer something different than the staged, overly produced style we were use to seeing. After seeing Brian's creative, highly-personal, and never forced-looking photography online we knew he was worth pursuing. Brian made the entire process from first meeting to final delivery absolutely seamless. He responded promptly, met us wherever we wished, and never, ever pressured, pushed or made us worry about a thing. The best thing about Brian is his authentic commitment to the craft of photography, and absolute insistence on achieving the satisfaction of his clients. On our wedding day he was unobtrusive, professional, and reassuring. I knew he would get the few shots we wanted, and trusted in his creativity to deliver the rest, and he definitely delivered. Choose Brian Rickey for your wedding photography, you will be glad you did.
