Rick was recommended to us by a mutual friend of ours. Since he lives on the West Coast and we were getting married on the East Coast - we spoke on the phone a couple of weeks prior to the wedding to get to know each other a better and so that he can find what we wanted on our special day. From that first phone call he was very attentive to every detail we shared, passionate and knowledgeable. When he arrived to the hotel I was getting ready at the day of the wedding– it was great vibes from the beginning. He put me at ease immediately. His personality, professionalism, passion and talent were transparent right away. He made sure to make me, my family, bridesmaids and all of the guests feel very comfortable while capturing the deepest emotions throughout the day and we couldn’t be happier! Although it’s true what they say, your wedding day really does fly by – we are so thankful to be able to relive all of the moments each time we look through our wedding photos. Rick – I am so glad we chose you, we are forever grateful!

I don’t even know where to start... Rick is just the best. I DO NOT like having my picture taken so choosing a photographer for our wedding was daunting to me, especially with how many options there are. The second I met Rick it was love at first sight. He made us feel so comfortable. He just has that way about him. When it came to our wedding day he made it so special. He captured the most amazing moments (especially the candid ones), he got my teenage nephew to smile in multiple photographs, which is HUGE and by the end of the night he was friends with all the guests at my wedding. I had so many people reach out to us for his contact info after our wedding. Thanks to Rick, we have the most precious moments captured at our wedding and he is now our photographer for life!

My husband and I had a personal in mind to do our engagement and wedding photos. I was searching on IG for a wedding dress and I stumbled across Richard’s profile. His profile has such a unique vibe that we wanted to reach out to him and see what he’s all about. After meeting Richard... we were so comfortable with him and the price that we booked him for the gig. There are no buts, no hesitation, no regrets that we chose him. From the beginning to end, we are in awe of his professionalism. His whole team made it fun, relaxing, but the most important, memorable with the pictures he delivered so quickly.

We used Richard Anthony Photography for our wedding and we're so happy that we did. Richard's dedication and commitment to providing not just incredible photography but a wonderful customer experience is very clear. We were thrilled with the photos and videos after the wedding. Richard did a great job of capturing our emotions and the beauty of our wedding day. We highly recommend Richard and his team for any special event.

Richard and his team were amazing to work with. While some photographers are with you on an hourly basis, he's with you all day. Our engagement and wedding pictures came our great, mostly because Richard was easy to work with, put us at ease, and pulled us out of our shell, capturing such great shots. Can't recommend this team enough!

We had a destination wedding in Mexico with 40 of our closest friends and family. Rick was there every step of the way and captured perfect shots that were meaningful, unique, and truly one of a kind. We couldn’t imagine a better photographer to shoot our special day! He is accommodating, easy to work with, and genuinely has your best interest in mind throughout. And added bonus ladies, the finished product arrives quickly and he’s pretty easy on the eyes

Richard was our engagement and wedding photographer, I couldn’t have asked for better! We live in northern CA and Richard came up from Los Angeles multiple times to see the venue & meet with us, do our engagement shoot and for our wedding! He was a dream to work with, attentive, creative, friendly and best of all- knew how to deal with last minute changes. Everything was captured beautifully from the morning of to the end of the night. The night of our wedding, everyone was commenting on our photographers and how they were so amazing, even the guests noticed! Richard and his team are more than just photographers who make you look good, they realize the importance of capturing emotion and that is exactly what they do. Through the time we spent with him, Richard has become a friend and will be our go to photographer for all life events to come!

What led us to choose Richard to photograph our daughter’s wedding at the Houdini Estate in Los Angeles is his outstanding portfolio. His photographs are classically gorgeous, yet creative. He captures all of the traditional shots with artistic mastery, but he also has a talent for creating truly artistic, and even whimsical shots that add an element of fun to your wedding album. His warm and caring personality and his thoughtful questions and attention to detail during the planning process let us know from the start that we were in expert hands. More importantly, he put family and friends totally at ease on the big day. As a result, everyone looked relaxed and natural, and his stunning images truly reflected the excitement and sense of joy that make weddings so special. We would hire Richard again in a heartbeat.

Richard was referred to my Fiancé (now HUBS!) by a very close friend whom my husband grew up with. Naturally at first we were a bit hesitant because we had all the expectations in the world for our wedding and engagement photos. WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED WITH THE OUT COME! Richard is AMAZING! Our pictures are breath taking! People ask me all the time who took them. We go through our albums monthly. He found a way to capture the best parts of us, one being my 9 year old son- and “Best man!”
Thank you Richard. You have left us memories for FOREVER!

Richard and his team of seasoned professionals helped deliver the vision we described from the very onset. He photographed our engagement shoot which required him waking up very early in the morning to get the perfect shot at LACMA Urban Lights before the masses arrived. He also got the perfect shot of us with my favorite Bougainvillea vine in the background. Even though it was in an alley (by my choosing), he made the photo look as if we were in a garden in Versailles. It was magical and exactly what I envisioned. He was very communicative, and very easy to reach during the whole process. Richard and his team captured the essence of our wedding: a fun fiesta! From the engagement shoot to the wedding ceremony and festivities, he embodied what a professional photographer does to deliver on his promise to make our wedding pictures shine. He is gregarious and so personable that it felt like he was a guest at our wedding and he fit right in while taking the best shots. He provided us with many photos to choose from within a short timeframe. It was easy to communicate our expectations, which he met all along the way. We enjoyed having him and his crew as our wedding photographer and videographer. We hope you do, too.

Planning a wedding is not easy, and you know what's not easier? Planning a wedding in a different country with a 16 hour time difference. I spent 5 months planning and looking into different photographers and destinations. Then I found The Richard Anthony Photography. After looking at all their portfolio's, I decided to book a MINI save the date session with Richard and was sold once we received our photos.
I booked them about 5 months before leaving to Bali, and oh boy Richard and his team was fast in responding with detailed information in preparing before the wedding in Indonesia. We went to lunch three times prior to departing to give specific details and shots that my wife and I wanted. Since we were flying out there a week prior to the wedding, we asked if they would be able to do an add on package to capture photos of us as we explored the island of Bali prior to the wedding, and they loved that idea to get candid shots of us!
Day of the wedding, Richard reached out through WhatsApp and wanted to meet for breakfast with full breakdown to make sure we were not missing any shots that we had talked about capturing. Being as stressed as I was, Richard and his team made it much easier and smoother than what I would of thought. What I loved about Richard having an assistant fly out with him is that he was very casual when I arrived with my soon to be Fiancé. I asked him if he could take a "Picture" of us, which ended up being a video recording while Richard’s assistant took some amazing shots.
Nonetheless the whole experience was great. My fiancé loved the raw and posed shots, and loved our photographer and his assistant. He is now our photographer for anything and everything that we plan, we are flying him to Kauai to take maternity shots during our babymoon. If you are thinking of hiring a destination wedding photographer, no matter how many miles away the destination may be, go with Richard Anthony Photography and his team!!!
