Choosing your Photographer

There are many questions to consider when searching for your wedding photographer. Will your photographer capture the type and quality of images that you expect? Can your photographer work in difficult lighting situations? Does your photographer have a plan in case of equipment failure? Can he or she adapt to changing weather and make the best of an ordinary room when you hoped for a wedding on the beach? How will your photographer communicate with you, your guests, and the other vendors at your ceremony? Finally, how will your photographer handle your precious images after the big day?

At Rick Dean Photography, we believe that couples are happiest when they find a quality photographer who also complements their photographic and personality styles. Our photographers have the creative vision and technical expertise to capture stunning images of you and your family, as well as the experience and poise to communicate effectively with you and the many people who work together to make your wedding day a success. We pride ourselves on our ability to help you navigate the many dynamics of a wedding day to capture the moments that matter most to you.

Once your special day is over, our dedicated work is not. A former client put it best when she said, “You don’t just take the pictures; you take care of the pictures!” You will find this to be true once you see the results. Rick Dean Photography fine tunes every shot and corrects and retouches images as needed.
Furthermore, we only deal with printers and album vendors who provide us with a proofing profile. This allows us to see on our monitors exactly what will be printed. From your first contact to your final images, Rick Dean Photography aims to make your wedding photography experience as smooth and rewarding as possible. Give us a call and let us help you make your wedding memories last a lifetime.
