Some Kind Words

What an amazing photographer! I originally shot with Ricardo on a solo project and the photos came out absolutely phenomenal. This year for Father's day I wanted photos of my sisters and I with our dad, choosing Ricardo was an absolute no brainer! His professionalism, photo quality, and turnaround times were impeccable. I highly recommend him for both solo and family portraits in both natural and studio lighting.

I love working with Ricardo! He is an expert at lighting and overall composition of a photo. Very kind, helpful and responsive- he is one of my favorite photographers.
