Meet the Rick Dean Photography Team
The legal name of our company is “Rick Dean Photography” but in actuality it should be “Rick Dean & The Amazing Professional Team He Has Put Together”.
At each and every wedding, big or small, we use a team approach to capture your special day. Yes we may have different titles: Lead Photographer, Second Photographer, Photo Assistant, Dress Fluffer/Bride’s Assistant. But we work as a team with a single goal in mind. To make your wedding day the fun, magical event you dreamed of.
Our primary lead photographer is Rick Dean but you can ask for someone different if you like. Rick E is an incredible wedding photographer. When he had his own studio in CT, he was named one of the top wedding photographers in the Northeast. Amy offers a totally different style than either Ricks. Her style is more pastel and ethereal in its look. If you are on a budget then look no further than Lisa. She is the newest lead and because she does not have as much experience her rates are lower than the rest of us.
If your wedding package includes a Second Photographer, that position will be filled with Stan or Lisa. Sometimes Rick E. who also work as Lead Photographers for the company will shoot second but that is more rare. Our second shooters are all pros so it’s like having two lead photographers! We do not use interns in the lead or secondary role.
Our assistants do more than just schlepping camera equipment for our photographers. They are another set of eyes making sure that every detail is in place and every special moment is captured. Between setting up lights for wedding party shots and fluffing the dress, they will run to get water, cocktails and/or hairspray for the bride and find the one groomsmen who slipped away before photos were done. Whatever it takes to get the perfect shot, they will do it.
