Timeless over trend. True Color. Blended approach. Rick Dean is your storyteller in Charleston, South Carolina and the world.

Our clients like down-to-earth and fun loving photographers that will make you laugh and enjoy your experience with us.  They like colors that pop and images that provide a sense of place and action.   Our style is blended and what I like to call “observational and directive” as different times throughout the day require different approaches from photojournalistic, to a tad traditional, to “directive” that can make for magical moments that do not “naturally” occur.  We are very client-centered.  This day is about you …what the client wants the client gets to the best of our ability and always with a smile. …Cheers, Rick Dean

Choosing Your Wedding Photographer
Rick Dean Photography

Your wedding photographer has to be able to accomplish many things, often at once. Their aesthetic must match your own. They must prove themselves capable of capturing the images you want taken of your big day, of working with the weather, the light, the locations, the guests, and the shifting nature of each of those things. If their photography equipment fails or breaks, is there backup equipment? You have one shot at capturing your big day and you simply must be confident that your chosen wedding photographer has the talent, skills, and ingenuity to roll with the punches and still produce breathtaking images. You, after all, have a wedding to manage. You need a wedding photographer you can trust to take care of things.

Feel Confident That Rick Dean Can Do The Job

Rick Dean is one such Charleston wedding photographer. From beginning to end, the images of your wedding are carefully created, with work going on well after you wave your goodbyes and head into wedded bliss. Each shot is refined to perfection and then touched up and edited where required. This is where the magic that drew your eyes to this particular wedding photographer occurs.

Images of the bride, groom, family members, and guests. Shots of the location, the rings, special details you spent so long arranging. Notes from friends, your officiant, speeches, dancing. Whatever it was that made your day special, that made it YOURS, is what the right wedding photographer will capture.
