Rich is a true professional and he knows what he's doing! He took beautiful formal photos of our families, and then for the rest of the wedding night I didn't even know he was there! But we got the photos back and I'm shocked at how intimate and sweet they are since I didn't see Rich at all! He is accommodating, professional, and a great person to work with. I highly recommend Hudson Photography!
Richard was our wedding photographer this past September. He was professional, creative, and exceptionally well-prepared for our event - overall, an incredible photographer to work with. Ahead of the event, he sent us a thorough questionnaire to make sure that we had a chance to describe our ceremony and the type of photos we wanted. On the day of the wedding, he had clearly prepared and was ready to capture as many different parts of the event as possible. He took phenomenal pictures of the bride/bridesmaids getting ready, and managed to be in the middle of all the action without being distracting or obtrusive. Instead, he calmly photographed the preparations as they unfolded, capturing poignant moments between the bride and her friends and family. We also staged a “first look” between the bride and the groom before the ceremony - Richard found a beautiful spot on a stone staircase in the garden. Like all his photos of the ceremony, we were extremely happy with how he captured this memorable moment. As we began to invite more and more people into our photos (the groomsmen, the bridesmaids, the families), he managed the crowd of people well - finding good locations and organizing the groups into well-composed photos. It can be hard to manage a crowd like that, as many people were roving around and exploring the venue, but Richard never got frustrated and was extremely efficient and professional in how he organized picture after picture. We only had the venue for five hours, and we really appreciated how quickly yet effectively Richard worked in getting all of the different group photos finished so we could join the rest of our guests. He struck a perfect balance between providing his own creative input and integrating our suggestions, and we ended up with a memorable collection of photographs that we’ll be able to look back on for years. He offers tremendous value and expertise as an event photographer and we can’t recommend his work highly enough!

Richard did an amazing job photographing our wedding. He was in contact throughout the planning process to make sure we felt comfortable and that he had a clear idea of what we wanted for our photos. Richard was creative and flexible the day of. The photos came out great and I would recommend Richard and his staff for any event! Claire shot our engagement photos and did a great job helping us learn how to pose and find the perfect lighting/settings to take photos. We were extremely satisfied with how our engagement photos came out. Both photographers are creative, talented and beyond professional. Richard and Claire work well together to make sure that every moment of your special day is captured.

I found this photographer through Photography by David's Bridal... While I would not use this service again, I would absolutely work directly with Richard Hudson. He was very professional, but also friendly. He was great about contacting me several times before the wedding to gain an understanding of what I wanted and was EVERYWHERE at the wedding, without being in the way or in the background of other photos. I have not yet received the photos that he took, but I have no doubt that I will be pleased with the outcomes!
