We want to help you collect moments! So, for a limited time, we are offering a FREE photo booth or wedding album to go with your wedding photography package. That means, you could get an entire wedding package for around $1,000. That’s an incredible deal.

This won’t last long, so please contact us today or share this with a friend. Let’s see if we have your date available and what we can do for you!

Happy 2017! We hope that the holidays treated you very well, and that you are filled with hope and expectancy for this year, as we are! Really just wanted to post a short reminder that we are available for all your photography needs, including weddings, portraits of every kind, events, photo booth, real estate photography, 360 virtual tours, and more. Ask us for a quote for your upcoming need, or forward to friend, and we will gladly get that to you. Our packages always offer amazing value: gorgeous photos at very reasonable rates. And we’ve got some specials right now that you will want to take advantage of. Contact us for more information.

Last year we launched our “shine brighter” campaign, which involves helping you to shine brighter all around through photography, tips, encouragement, inspiration, and essential oils. We will continue our campaign this year, and we’d love for you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. For essential oils, please visit

The quick update on us: Rick continues to be rockstar photographer, amazingly fun dad, AND he cut all his hair (and looks quite handsome). Our nephew Cyrill is a freshman in high school, likes to play the trumpet and video games, and is starting to learn coding. Our son Isaac is in 4th grade, a green-belt (with white stripe) in karate, is going through another Minecraft phase, and loves science. Our son Judah is in kindergarten, does round-offs all over the house, loves to use his body (a daredevil like dad), and just wrote his first sentence (I like mom). Teresa loves being a wife and mom-preneur, taking care of  kids and running businesses, substitute teaching, and finding new ways to encourage, support, and inspire others. As always, God is faithful and good to us, and we are ever grateful to Him!

Call, text, email anytime to let us know how we can help you. Looking forward to working with you this year! May you experience the peace and joy of God all throughout your endeavors, and may 2017 by your year of breakthrough!

Take A Chance… Or NOT?!

Some things you decide to GO FOR IT and take a chance… things like love, a new business, a daring adventure. In those things taking a chance, or a risk, is good. You have not much to lose and everything to gain! With photography, not so much. Taking a chance on a possibly NOT getting gorgeous pictures of your most important day, or moment, or project, family or business? No bueno!!! For all your most special occasions and photography needs, you must go with trusted, consistent, professional, highly regarded, quality & experience. You are worth it! Your event, loved ones, business, whatever it is, is worth the investment.

We’ve been photographing weddings, portraits, businesses and homes a long time (well over 20 years of professional photography experience here!). Rick is as passionate, talented, and dedicated today as he’s ever been, and we are committed to giving you more than your money’s worth in beautiful images and consistent results.

Give us a call or refer a friend about your upcoming wedding, portrait or photo booth need, OR to photograph your listing or business. We are happy to chat packages and pricing and offer you a very competitive/attractive rate. We are always honored to work with new and returning clients.

Love & Success,

~Rick & Teresa


It’s Been Awhile…

by rickandteresa on June 23, 2016

Yes, it has been awhile since our last post. Sorry about that! Making a new commitment to keep posting regularly despite whatever else is going on. And there has been SO MUCH going on! Here’s a little update…

We are a busy family with three boys, ages 13, 8 and 5. The oldest is actually our nephew Cyrill and he’s been with us a little over a year now. He’s a kind, smart, funny, generous teenager with gorgeous curly hair and a passion for video games. He’s a blessing to our family! He just finished eighth grade and is looking forward to high school! Isaac is our 8 year old going on 9, preparing to enter 4th grade, and he is awesome. He’s our first born miracle baby whose name means laughter and he’s our promise-from-God-fulfilled. He’s creative and curious with a great imagination and an entrepreneurial mind. Hopefully he earns a tons of money at a young age and helps take care of his aging parents! Ha! Judah is our youngest and he is a joy. He’s excited to start kindergarten this fall! He’s fearless like his daddy, full of energy and spunk, and also has the sweetest, most tender heart. We hope he gets into college on a full sports scholarship! 🙂

Our boys keep us very busy, and when we are not playing with them, helping with homework, serving or cleaning up after them or driving them around, we are working. Work for us these days is mostly on our photography business where we are busy with weddings and school photography with a sprinkling of photo booth and real estate photography mixed in. Rick’s passion for and commitment to creating beautiful images of people, places, and things, remains strong and a driving force in his life, and his work shows it. I continue to support the business by doing all the administrative side, which I love.

With the boys a little older, I’m also now working part time as a substitute teacher in the local elementary schools, and really enjoying working with the kids. This year I have, in addition, become a wellness advocate with doTerra Essential Oils. We started using essential oils when we bought our first kit last December. That kit has replaced all the other medicines in our cabinet, supporting our family beautifully through flu and allergy season, helping us with upset tummies, sleep issues, mood swings, bug season, headaches, and on and on… That with the vitamins and the grapefruit oil I started using this year have also helped me to lose the last of my baby weight (after 5 years of struggling with those “last 10”). I’ve never felt better about my health, and I’m enjoying helping others to experience the benefits of essential oils.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a lot of things about my life and our lives. All the things that have gone on to bring us to today. The good, the bad, and the ugly. And our faith that has carried us through. The words “shine brighter” popped into my mind yesterday as I was thinking about our desire to help others and what it means to us. We want to help you shine brighter, in your pictures, in your faith, in your health, in your journey in life! I hope you will allow me to post my musings about what this means over this summer.

Speaking of summer, it just started this week! I’m always excited for a new season. This one is going to be great. More to come on that…. Let’s agree to shine brighter together!

Love and friendship,
