Chad photographed our wedding in Minneapolis, and it was an absolute pleasure working with him. He was fun to be around, easy to work with, and made sure to get any photos we requested. And beyond that he hung around us and our guests just snapping photos when the timing was right. He even rode the light rail train with the bride and bridesmaids on the way from the hotel to the venue, enjoying the photo op. Just in the few photos we've seen so far, we're already thrilled to have chosen a photographer who makes a point of capturing the special moments of our wedding rather than just doing a requisite set of Pinterest posed photos. Chad also took our engagement photo set, which was also fun, though more formal. He has been easy to communicate with, throughout. We are so looking forward to seeing our full wedding photo set! Thanks, Chad!

We had Chad photograph our wedding in Duluth this past weekend, and he was absolutely FABULOUS! He was knowledgeable, professional and made everyone feel so comfortable around him. He made our wishes his priority when it came to the posed pictures and when those were finished, he hung out in the background capturing all of our special moments with the people that we love. My husband was so impressed with Chad's preparedness, having all of his equipment set up in our reception space before we even arrived. And our groomsmen were still talking the next day about how relatable Chad was. Overall, we could not be happier with the service he provided, and we can't wait to see the photos!

I don’t even know where to start, Chad was amazing! I love his laid-back personality and sense of humor. Friends of ours whom had Chad photograph their wedding recommended him to us and we will definitely be recommending him to friends in the future. When initially deciding on a photographer Chad was willing to meet me for coffee so that I had chance to get to know him and see some of his work. Throughout the planning process whenever I had a question I would always get an email response from him immediately. I can’t wait to see all of our pictures but know from the few that he showed us already that they will be wonderful!

Chad deserves 5 stars all around! From the beginning, working with him was so easy, and he was such a joy. He made my husband and I feel so comfortable. We were a little nervous to do the engagement photos because posed pictures aren't really our thing, but Chad made it so relaxed, and the photos turned out amazing.
On the wedding day, he was just as great! He never interferred with anything and was extremely flexible but somehow managed to capture the most amazing shots. The day was extremely hot, and it was very hard for the group to take pictures outside because it was so humid, but Chad worked quikly and diligently to get great pictures taken in a matter of a few minutes. He really adjusted and tailored his style to our group, which was very nice.
I think above all, I was most overly impressed by the way Chad captured the day. After seeing all the photos, the moments and times he captured were exactly the way I had experienced them that day and truly brought to life my wedding. It was as if he had known my friends and family for years and knew exactly what was important to me, without me even really communicating every detail to him.
Chad's fantastic! A definitely must have photographer for your wedding!

Chad Richardson did an excellent job and was an excellent value for the quality of service provided. We are very happy with the pictures that we received and the slideshow he made for us. Our only criticism is that he seemed almost too relaxed, I think that we would have liked him to provide a little more input about taking pictures instead of asking us what we wanted. That being said, the criticism is a very minor thing and we would not have changed a thing.

Chad was a great photographer. Very professional, honest and exactly what we wanted. He does photo-journalistic style, but also took just enough posed photos to make the family happy. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and he has a knack for catching just the right moment. He was also very behind the scenes for most of the day, which is exactly what we wanted! We were very happy with his service and would highly recommend Chad Richardson Photography if you are looking for a beautiful photo documentation of your wedding.

Chad was excellent to work with and provided beautiful photos that really captured the essence of our wedding day. He captured who we are as a couple without having to create fabricated "moments." The posed shots that we requested were well envisioned and quickly arranged before and after the wedding. Chad's professionalism and easy-going personality set him apart from other photographers that we looked at. He knows how to put you at ease and bring out your best shots! We can't wait for him to capture our future moments together!

Chad was an awesome photographer for our wedding last September. He had been recommended by another photographer to us and we are so glad that we took their recommendation. Chad is quiet, unassuming and professional. He has such a calm presence that was much needed the day of our wedding and besides the traditional pictures we asked him to do I don't remember seeing him the rest of the day. I will recommend Chad to any of my friends who get married in the future! Thank you Chad!

Chad recently photographed our wedding in Key West and my husband and I couldn't be more in love with the results! We had family and friends in from all over the world and Chad captured every moment of emotion! (mostly a lot of laughter!!)

As Torsten and I relived the day as we looked through the dvd, we were very very thanksful for Chad being there. He's a such a great guy and an amazing photographer and as a photographer myself, I don't think I could have captured my own special day any better. He steps back and really notices those tiny details and facial expressions that you want to have forever, and to us that was priceless.

He was such a calming presence on my wedding day. He was everywhere, but never in the way. He caught moments that I didn't know happened until I was looking at my CD. I LOVED having Chad (and his second shooter, Andy) at our wedding.
