My husband and I began planning our Wedding in January of 2016 and married May 2017. From the very start Rick and Maria were fantastic! They were so understanding of the hours that my now husband, Ray, and I were working at the time. They made us feel comfortable with the entire... Read More process by explaining everything we needed to know. From talking about what they had to offer, to our engagement photos and then to our wedding. They never tried to push services or packages, they just simply told us what they could do and how they could do it. Leading up to the wedding they make sure to go over exactly what pictures you wanted taken that day and when you want to take them. Seriously, with Rick and Maria, you do not need a wedding planner! These two are amazing!! The day of the wedding always has it's hiccups---mine was my dress! Maria was so quick to jump in and literally "save the day". She keeps everything you could ever imagine on her at all times....including safety pins! More times than I could count, as soon as I started looking for something or someone, Maria or Rick jumped in before I even had to ask for help. You will not regret choosing Rick Blanco Photography for your wedding. Trust me!

I'm not even sure where to begin for this review. There are truly no words that could possibly explain how amazing our photographers are. From day one Rick and Maria consistently went above and beyond- throughout our entire engagement and planning craziness, the day of our... Read More wedding, and even now after all of it has passed and as we decide on our thank you cards, wedding photo album and canvas photos. My mom and I met with Rick and Maria as soon as we booked our venue, they have such an awesome and unique variety of packages for whatever price range you are looking for and they are willing to customize for your needs. We chose the biggest package because when we saw what all was included it was more than worth it. As soon as we booked with them they sent us an organization binder with tips/ helpful hints and dividers to put all of our wedding info and vender info in etc. They gave us suggestions for the location of our engagement photos and even included our dog in the photos which was so important and very special to us. They are always keeping in touch and updating you on what will be next or what needs to be done. If there were ANY questions I had or anything I was nervous/worried about during the planning process they HAD the answer and if they didn't they would help me figure it out (even if it wasn't pertaining to photography)! The day of our wedding was absolutely magical and a total dream come true and I can thank Rick and Maria for being a huge part of that. While I had amazing family around me, a fantastic bridal party and lovely bridal attendant it simply would have NEVER been as perfect without Rick and Maria. For the few minutes we had been at the venue before they arrived everyone was kind of like what do we do? where do we go? I answered with "once my photographers arrive it will be fine, everyone will know what's going on" (because I had read past reviews on Rick and Maria) and just like that it was, Rick and Maria showed up and took charge in the most fun and loving way possible. Everything flowed so perfectly because they had a timeline we worked on together and used it to go throughout our day. Any pictures or poses I had on Pinterest Rick and Maria had them done (I didn't even realize how much I forgot that I wanted until I saw all of the pictures they took). They truly go above and beyond. Maria has bobby pins to help with any hair issues, shout wipes (that came in handy when my husband accidentally stepped on my dress during our first look pictures), she helped me with my veil and my dress the entire night (she is the best ever)! The little things you don't think about Rick and Maria think about and it's because they care and they love what they do. I will never be able to thank them enough for being such an amazing part of our wedding day and for capturing the moments they did. Our save the dates, thank you cards, favor tags and wedding photos were (are) all breathtaking. We cannot wait for our canvas wrap and wedding album! It is something not only myself and my husband, but our families will cherish forever.

Rick and Maria are great! From the very first time we met with them we knew we were in good hands.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one Rick and Maria provided. From the time we first met, until now, they have continued to always be there to answer any questions we had. They went above and beyond to make our planning easier. We had a blast at our... Read More engagement session, they made us feel comfortable and gave us a feel of what to expect on our wedding day. On our wedding day, they came prepared for anything. They blended in well, but at the same time we felt their presence as though they were part of the family. They have continued since the wedding to help us with thank you's, our album design, and a wall collage for our new home. We could go on and on with positive things about our experience with Rick and Maria, but simply put, we could not have asked for better photographers for our wedding. We can't wait to work with them again in the future.

We used Rick Blanco Photography for our daughter's August wedding. The minute we met them we knew they were exactly what we were looking for. Rick and Maria really get to know the Bride and Groom and personalize their service to capture who the Bride and Groom are throughout the... Read More day. It was wonderful to have the two of them for the entire day. They created a schedule and it was perfect. I can not imagine the day would have ran so smoothly otherwise. Rick is amazing at seeing the perfect picture! And Maria is amazing at doing it all- washing dirt off dresses, fixing bustles, you name it she can fix it!

My wife and I planned our wedding 2 years out. Rick and Maria were the first vendor we booked and we were glad we did. Through the entire planning process they were very helpful with any questions we had even outside of the photo realm. We ended up using La Massaria as our... Read More wedding venue which Rick and Maria were the preferred vendor for. This made things even easier as they knew every little detail about the venue. The week of our wedding we had a consult with Maria to go over last minute details and this was very helpful as she was able to resolve all issues we were having with our time line for the day. She also was able to calm us down with a mishap that we were dealing with at the time. The day of the wedding the two of them were great together and worked very well with our videographer who they had never worked with previously. You would have never believed that after seeing how smoothly things went. Maria was unbelievable all day with helping my wife out with everything from her dress to her hair. The weather for our wedding was overcast which bummed us out as we really wanted good sunset shots and some fall foliage shots but Rick was able to still get some absolutely incredible shots to make up for the lack of sunset. The two of them have some signature shots they like to do with sparklers, sunsets and backlighting that really is a nice touch to make for some awesome pictures. After the wedding they immediately posted a few of our pictures online which was great to have. When you book Rick Blanco Photography you get much more than a photographer. If we did it all again we would without a doubt go with them.

Knowing I was out of state, Maria was right there to give me contact information to any vendor I asked about.

If you are considering Rick Blanco Photography, just do it! Maria and Rick are exceptional! I didn't even know what that meant until I had the luck to have them do the photos at my wedding! I didn't realize how important this was to me until I saw the pictures. Everywhere... Read More and nowhere at all times, they caught the true emotions and the essence that was there without my even realizing it; while being virtually invisible the entire night unless they wanted to be seen and never intrusive. There were at least a dozen surprises when I saw my photos finished; little moments that were so special, a tear, a look, pure joy, and now immortalized. I sent the link to people who couldn't make the wedding and they all told me that they felt like they were there. But it was not just the photos. Maria was there always, any questions or concerns that I had before the wedding, we skyped, we talked on the phone; I live in FL and the wedding was in PA. When my dress was bothering me she dove right in and fixed it. And Rick was able to get even my smile adverse husband to smile and have fun, miracle worker. They ebb and flow together as a unit both playing their role and anticipating the needs of each other and everyone around them. Even stayed later than I expected, after my limo got us lost and delivered me an hour late. I am sure there is a limit to the review on the website or I could just go on and on, there are just so many ways that they exceeded everything that I could ever have expected of my wedding team. So I will conclude by just saying WOW!
