I was married two weeks ago at Solage in Calistoga and used Richard as our photographer. He did an amazing job and was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. I live in NYC and did everything over the phone. Richard was always reachable and really listened to what was important to me. I did not want to see my husband before the wedding and he understood and was able to work around this and shoot photos of just the bridesmaids and groomsmen before the ceremony. It was also important to me that we take some shots in a vineyard (which is not on Solage's property) and after the ceremony he happily took my husband and me in his car to do these shots at a neighboring winery. Richard has a lovely demeanor, is energetic, professional and has a great eye. It is also clear that he's been shooting weddings in and around Napa Valley for many years and knows exactly what he is doing. So many of my guests also thought Richard was fabulous and came up to me after the wedding (and are still asking me) where I found him. We also worked with one of Richard's videographer's, Jared, who was terrific and an additional photographer from his company for the rehearsal reception. Richard sent me the digital photos right away and posted them on a website that is very easy to use and send around to my family and friends. I strongly recommend Richard and photographers/videographers from his company and am happy to speak with you if you have any questions about my experience. My number is (917)215-5993. Richard is really the best wedding photographer in the area (I did a TON of research) and all of my vendors sang his praises. I look forward to using him again for portraits when my husband and I travel to the area for our anniversary trips! Read less

Richard Wood took the wedding photos for my wedding in Yountville, CA at the Vintage Estate Pavillion on April 24, 2010. I can't say enough good things about him. I live in New York City, so it wasn't the easiest thing to plan my wedding from afar. Richard was so great to work with. He was available to answer any questions I had from the start and always responded to emails/ phone calls in a timely manner. He was so laid back and helpful throughout the entire process. He took time before the wedding to go over the timeline for the day, and gave me a clear idea of the types of photos he would take. He was flexible with timing and worked with our wedding budget. He even gave us recommendations for our rehearsal dinner and ceremony musicians when my fiance (now husband) and I were struggling to find those vendors-- we ended up using his recommendations and were extremely happy! On the day of the wedding, he was so efficient and kept everyone calm and relaxed. I have a HUGE family and he was able to get through all the family photos and some portraits with my husband and I during our cocktail hour -- and we still had some time leftover to enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests. He worked independently and captured all the emotion/ special moments of our day. I would highly recommend Richard for his creative ability, his professionalism, and because he is a real pleasure to work with. Read less
