He came highly recommended by our wedding venue... Read More and my husband and I are over joyed that we chose him to be part of our happily ever after. Cannot say enough great things.

Our wedding was July 1, 2017 and we couldn’t be happier that we used Rick Helman photography. As a newly engaged couple, we had no idea how important finding the right photographer was. As soon as we met Rick, we knew he was it! In our initial meeting Rick, we were incredibly... Read More impressed with the work that he showed us and we immediately were made to feel comfortable and heard due to his personable demeanor. Rick was not pushy, but rather he listened and made helpful suggestions. On the day of our wedding his entire crew was punctual, respectful, positive and energetic. We were thrilled to be surrounded by such wonderful people on our special day and beyond happy with our engagement photos, our wedding photos and our highlight video. We cannot thank Rick and his crew enough for capturing our love and happiness on our special day. I should also mentioned that a storm rolled in while we were taking our pictures and we got some INCREDIBLE shots, so there’s no need to panic if the weather looks rainy on the big day with Rick as your photographer.

Rick did our wedding on May 27 and we couldn't be happier. As soon as I saw Rick's albums, I knew we had to have him as our photographer. I have never seen such beautiful, detailed albums. We did an engagement shoot with Rick in June of last year and loved all the photos.... Read More Rick is so talented at finding good places for shots. He is very professional and so easy to work with. We just picked up our wedding photos this week and I can't stop looking at them. On the day of the wedding, so many people in our bridal party told us how much fun they had. On our wedding day, Rick came to my house to take pictures with my dog which was sooo awesome! He even knew the tricks to get my dog to look at the camera! Then when we got to the venue, our florist was there an hour late. Instead of sitting around waiting for the flowers, Rick stayed so calm and was able to figure out the most amazing shots without the flowers. He always responds within a day of emailing him, sometimes within minutes. He always also either answers phone calls or calls back right away. He is super knowledgeable and has so much experience with anything that comes up. He is super friendly and makes you feel so relaxed. I have so much anxiety all the time and honestly, taking pictures was one of the best parts of the wedding day for me. It was so much fun! We have so many awesome pictures to choose from that it is going to be difficult to pick the ones for the album. But, I can't wait because I know the album will look amazing! If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, I would highly recommend Rick!!!

I do not even have words for how amazing Rick and his team were on our wedding day. We got married on June 9, 2017, and from beginning to end we knew he would take care of us.

We also had our engagement session with Rick, which was a blast. He really captured our love for one another, along with our personalities, in every image.

We had seen some of the photos taken by Rick at our venue, the New York Country Club. And we had heard of his reputation through them and our DJ. Anyone we talked to said the same thing “He is the best. He may be a little bit pricey, but it’s so worth it”. And they weren’t... Read More lying. My husband and I only had to wait about 3 weeks after the wedding to receive ALL of our finalized photos – touched up and everything. We went through each one, and both of us cried. The pictures were perfect. There’s no better word to describe them. They captured each moment of our day perfectly, and reliving each moment of that day was nothing short of bliss. Our photographers, Lauren and Joe, were patient with us (a somewhat rowdy bunch), came with great ideas, and even stayed until the end of wedding, even though that meant staying longer than originally contracted to, by a few HOURS. They were “ghosts” during the reception, but still got the perfect shots, and weren’t “in your face” during the reception, but still managed to capture the joy on each persons’ face. Every big and little moment that meant everything to us that day was captured in photos, and they were perfect. I would recommend them to ANYONE. Such nice people, so much fun, and they really make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera (for those like me who don’t like to be photographed). They may be a LITTLE pricier than some, but let’s be honest, for the photos that will last you forever, on the biggest day of your life, THESE are the guys you want!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, I PROMISE!
