Rick & Deb are an amazing couple to have for any occasion!!! They are the nicest people, to work with, and in general, and are willing to do whatever it takes to get the shots for the most AMAZING pictures! I have nothing negative to say about them! They went above & beyond... Read More anything I was expecting! Not only do I have pictures of my husband & I and our wedding party but the entire wedding; they captured every moment right up until the end of the night! Rick & Deb were recommended to us & I would highly recommend them to any and everyone who needs a photographer for any occasion! They were to accommodate our schedule into theirs & for that I can't thank them enough. THANK YOU Rick & Deb for 2 amazing photo shoots (and for making the trip to Newmarket to Adam's Point for us!) and making our special day even more amazing! I can't say that enough!

I was so grateful to have Rick and Deb by our side on our wedding day! They were professional, thoughtful, very sensitive to our needs -and they captured beautiful moments throughout the day! My husband and I both feel shy in front of a camera, but they made us feel so... Read More comfortable. We were so impressed with the way they worked together -Deb focused in and found beautiful candid moments of our families and friends and Rick artfully photographed my husband and I. We were impressed with the way they were able to create a story with their images and in addition to the files and images they created a slideshow with some of the best shots from the day. We loved working with both Rick and Deb and would highly recommend them to anybody looking for an excellent pair of wedding photographers!

We first met Rick and Deb when we went to their home in order to have an engagement photo session with them, which they offered as a part of the package for our wedding booking.

I don't even know where to begin... Rick and Deb are such fantastic people. They are both kind, caring, creative, amazing TALENTED photographers. We knew from the very first time we met them at their house we just had to work with them, it felt like getting together with great... Read More friends. They went above and beyond and helped us create a wedding timeline, which is great because planning a wedding is hard since you only do it once in your life. Trust & listen to them because they do this almost every weekend and they are pros! Our photos came out better than we could have ever imagined, and as an added bonus we have built a great relationship with Rick and Deb. They are so much fun to work with, and that's coming from 2 people that typically don't like their picture taken. Brides- any small details in photos like a stray hair or someone's stance or hand placement... well you won't have time to worry about that because Deb will have fixed it before you can stress! As Rick will tell you "no need to worry because Deb will worry for you" Trust them with your wedding photos, you will not regret it! So happy we chose them.

Where does one begin? Rick & his Wife Deb are an absolute breath of fresh air. In the world of wedding chaos, the only area I didn't feel the need to worry about was photography.

We had a very pleasant wedding photography experience with Rick and Deb at the Indian Head in the White mountains in October 2015. We were initially worried about how well the session will turn out to be as I have difficulty acting natural in front of the camera. Upon... Read More arrival at the photo shoot location, Deb's warm demeanor immediately set me at ease and made me comfortable. The rest of the session went through in a breeze and we were surprised to find ourselves thoroughly enjoying every single moment of the experience. Rick was very professional and has a good eye for the perfect shot while Deb was very good at communicating to us on what we should do for each picture. We were touched by the amazing chemistry between them - those 2 made a great team! We received the pictures several weeks later and are very satisfied with every single picture. We honestly cannot recommend them enough.

Rick and Deb- Simply the BEST

After our initial meeting with Rick and Deb we knew they were the perfect photographers for our wedding. It became more and more evident each time we met with them. We were super nervous about our engagement photos since we had never taken pictures together before. Rick and Deb... Read More put us at ease, made us laugh, and made the whole experience enjoyable. Not to mention, we LOVED our photos. On the day of the wedding Rick and Deb weren't just our photographers, they were more like family. They were kind, easy to work with, caring, and good at what they do! They made sure that the day ran smoothly, there were no mishaps with family members, and even built us a timeline to stay on schedule. During the night of our wedding, not to mention after, we received many compliments about how awesome and personable Rick and Deb were. One of my bridesmaids, who is getting married in October, even mentioned that she was bummed that she hadn't thought to book Rick and Deb for her wedding. The pictures came out absolutely stunning. They were much more than I could've asked for. Rick and Deb even made us a 20+ minute slideshow to music and wrote a blog post on our wedding, including some of the most beautiful pictures. I only wish that I could get married again to have Rick and Deb capture the day and will definitely be sticking with them for family, maternity, and any other professional pictures I need taken. To Rick and Deb-- THANK YOU to the moon and back!!

When my husband and I were planning our wedding we originally thought "Photographers are so expensive, we don't need to spend extra money on that because we have family and friends that take decent pictures." Thank goodness my mother-in-law talked to us. She said that the... Read More photographers would be her wedding gift to us. She had always wanted Rick Bouthiette to photograph one of her child's weddings. We ended up having a meeting with Rick and Deb Bouthiette and had some head shots done (not associated with the wedding) and it was a very relaxing experience. I have never really liked my picture to be taken and I tend to be nervous in front of the camera. Rick and Deb took time and talked to me, got to know me, and after about 10 minutes I felt that we have been friends for years. They explained how to stand, smile, and just be relaxed in-front of the camera. When it came to engagement photos they went above and beyond and spent extra time with us to get multiple scenes. Then to get ready for the wedding they talked to us and wanted to know all the details so they were prepared for everything. We did some things to surprise our guests, but Rick and Deb knew so they were able to get amazing angles. This is what made them such an important part of our most magical day. My husband and I just feel so blessed to have had Rick and Deb as our photographers and we really want to stress the importance of a great photographer for your wedding. You might think ehh we can save a lot but trust me, save money other places and splurge on your photographer! We have the most amazing pictures I have seen, and your day is once-in-a-lifetime but the pictures Rick and Deb Bouthiette take, will last for generations. We will continue to use Rich Bouthiette Photography for all our future photography needs, we love them!

The Perfect Photographers

Reviewed on 10/13/2014 Colleen N

Early into planning our wedding, we had narrowed our photographer search down to only a few options. We set meetings up with each one, and told ourselves that we wouldn’t make a decision until we met with them all. However, the moment we met Rick and Deb, we knew they were a... Read More perfect fit. They made us feel like family. They showed a genuine interest in our relationship, and in our wedding. The Engagement Photo session helped them get to know us even better, and prepared us for what we would experience on the day of the wedding. They came to a location that we chose and took really beautiful photos. On the wedding day, Rick and Deb were more than just our photographers – they helped keep us on schedule, they fixed our hair, got to know our families, and genuinely made the day special. Within only a few weeks our photos were complete – though throughout their editing process, they posted quite a few previews on their Facebook page. Every single picture captured our special day perfectly. With their photos, we’ll be re living our wedding day for years to come. We honestly cannot recommend them enough.

Selecting a great photographer was one of the most important parts of planning our wedding and selecting the right vendors. I did extensive research, spoke with many photographers, and met with four in person (and I came with a questionnaire to each meeting!). Rick was one of... Read More the first I spoke with, and highly enjoyed our conversation. I continued to look around, but always came back to how much I enjoyed talking with Rick. I reached out to him again several months later, hoping he still had our date available, and to my surprise he did! I met him and his wife Deb, and we talked and collaborated for a while! He was willing to customize a package that met our budget, and I knew they would be perfect to spend the day with us, and capture our wedding day! It was important to not only select a great photographer, but also to have someone that would fit right in with our crowd, and be sensitive to my family dynamics. We also did an engagement shoot a couple of weeks before the wedding, and I am so glad that we did! My husband-to-be was so reluctant to do it, but he relaxed as the night went on, and loved all the pictures! Rick was a great sport dealing with all the black bugs that happened to come out that night on the Newburyport boardwalk! I cannot recommend the engagement shoot enough...do NOT pass on this! Rick shared with us many great tips that carried over into taking pictures the day of the wedding, and my husband was comfortable in front of the camera the day of the wedding. All in all, Rick and Deb certainly delivered! We have so many great shots from our wedding (we had a blast taking pictures before the reception, including getting some awesome shots at Christy's Pizza and a car show!), and the quality of their work is superb! They were open to our ideas, and had plenty of their own, which was great! After the wedding, he posted a couple of "sneak peak" shots on Facebook, and all of our family and friends loved them! We met with them a couple of weeks later to see the pictures on a slide show, and spent time reminiscing about the day. We were so thrilled with all of the pictures they took! I highly recommend Rick and Deb to anyone looking for the perfect team to capture your wedding! Nothing is better than having a husband and wife duo capture your first moments as husband and wife!

We were incredibly impressed with...

The quality of the pictures was beyond our expectations, but the turn-around time to receive them was even better. We received them (all edited on CDs and compiled in a beautiful slide show with music) less than 2 months after the actual wedding. They followed through on everything they promised and even incorporated the last minute requests we had for the day. They were completely flexible, but also took charge (so we didn’t have to worry) of capturing every moment and detail at the Wedding. The overall experience was so wonderful because we were working with experienced, respectful PROFESSIONALS who are passionate and LOVE what they do. As a high-maintenance, picky bride, I was blown away with how all the photos that were taken told the story of our day, our love, and most importantly how incredibly happy we were with such a stress-free Wedding because of the photographers we chose.

You have found your photographers! Rick and Deb Bouthiette are THE BEST in the business. I have a love for photography and for our wedding day I had a very distinct idea on what I wanted. The photography was the most important part of the wedding for us so I did my research!... Read More When we first started talking to Rick and Deb about the possibility of working together it was important to them first and foremost that we were a good fit. I have never had that experience before. Most of the vendors I spoke to were more interested in getting deposits and marking their appointment book first. This was different. Rick and Deb took a lot of time talking with us and getting to know us as a first step. They took so much care in understanding what was important to us, our styles, personalities, every little detail was covered. Rick and Deb made a point to check in with us throughout the planning process and were a great help during that time. I actually don’t know how I would have made it through this phase without them. They were my “go to” folks and gave me so much support. They really care about their clients. We decided to get ready for the wedding at a hotel and had designated rooms for the bridal party. When I arrived at the hotel the Manger told me that Rick and Deb had been there the day before and had already planned designated areas where we would shoot. That meant so much to us. Rick and Deb did a beautiful job and the finished product was amazing. We will have these images for the rest of our lives to cherish. Many of our guests also made a point to express how awesome they were. They got the guests involved and captured so many great candid shots. They know how to bring out the beauty in everyone. Rick and Deb are a dynamic team together that creates a one of a kind experience for their clients. One of the best decisions we made was to choose Rich and Deb. We were looking for a professional to capture our wedding and in the process we found our family photographers. We feel very lucky to have had the privilege to work with them and now consider them our friends. Rick and Deb are wonderful on every level. We highly recommend them!
