Kelly and Alex are good people. Genuine, honest, loving, fun and thoughtful. I had fun during their engagement shoot, which some of you may remember, but my experience shooting their wedding exceeded all expectations.

I drove up to Santa Ynez Valley the day before and checked in at the venue (Sandavol Ranch) that evening. Seeing the determined level of activity onsite, the amount of friends pitching in to get stuff done, the level of creativity and personal touches attached to every detail highlighted just how special the next day was going to be. Seeing the vision, creativity and personal tastes injected into a wedding, to the level they achieved, is quite a rare thing. Combine that with an incredible group of people, with a madly in love couple at the centre of it, and you get a wedding that all those in attendance will remember for a long time.

Alex is himself a talented photographer. That made me feel extra honored to be asked to capture their wedding story. They knew what they wanted, they knew a lot of photographers in LA but they trusted in me. For that I am very grateful.

They said some incredibly nice words about me after receiving their images. If you want to see the full review click here, however one sentence alone optimizes exactly what I want all my couples to experience.

“Richard has an ability to come across as an old friend you have not seen in years. It was easy to trust him completely.”
