My husband and I only wanted one person to take the photos…the photographer. And so, finding the right person(s) to do the job was incredibly important. On our wedding day, we met Angela and Jurek and they were fabulous. Angela, just "got it". I, the bride, have a lot of family with a range of dynamics (steps, halfs, monkey's uncles, etc) and she took it in stride. We didn't want only stiff staged photos and because we were clear with Rick and his team, what we got was a range of dynamic photos which thoroughly reflected the warmth and fun we felt on our wedding day. After the event itself, being in touch with Rick was easy and he has always been prompt and responsive to all the questions posed. The toughest part has been choosing which photos to frame and which to include the our wedding album. We would recommend Rick and his team to anyone with a particular fondness towards Angela and Jurek who were great on the day of and took such fab shots.

Rick Bern and Drew photographed my wedding in September. They were absolutely wonderful to work with! Rick and Drew were extremely attentive and listened to all of our needs. We had such a large bridal party and they managed everyone so well and got all the shots we requested. They were so easy to work with and made everyone feel comfortable. We had a great experience and I highly recommend using them!

One word - AMAZING! My husband and I are so happy with our wedding pictures. Rewind back to our first meeting with Rick, I came in very serious with my wedding binder and ready to get down to business. Rick is so laid back - while professional - and just really knows weddings in and out and poses questions that you may not have thought of yet. He was very responsive via email and proactive with sending along wedding updates as needed. He was in touch with us a few weeks before our wedding to let us know who would be shooting that day. Drew and Keagan were assigned to our wedding - I can't say enough about the two of them, even my venue coordinator stopped me at the end of night to ask "who are those guys." They were extremely warm, professional and proficient. Like most weddings we were running against the clock but they made it happen and got all the shots we wanted. The duo worked well as team with my videographer and even worked around our crazy uncles who got in their way. Last, I will say I did thorough research on photographers in the RI and MA and area and Rick was definitely the best bang for our buck. Most packages these days don't even include an album (he does) which was really important to me and keepsake we'll have forever. Oh and he has a great sense of humor which you'll need to make it out of wedding planning alive.

We hired Rick to travel to Long Island for our wedding and it was worth every penny! Rick's images speak for themselves. He is a genius behind the camera--our wedding photos look they are straight from a bridal magazine. Rick and his staff are very professional and unobstrusive the day of the wedding and got all of the important shots without make us feel like we were posing for pictures all day. You can also tell that Rick really cares about his brides and capturing each moment... he began shooting around 11 AM and did not leave until the end of our afterparty at 1:30 AM the next morning. I highly recommend Rick to anyone and everyone!

Rick, you and Angela were spectacular yesterday! Marta and I could not be more happy with the work that you did to capture the moment at our wedding. You caught the shot as it happened, and in the down time, you had an amazing eye to see something in your mind, quickly assemble the bridal party and get the image. I never liked having my photo taken before, but it was really fun to work with you. The number one comment last night was that the bride was beautiful. Number two might have been that the photographer was amazing. Best decision we made to have you shoot our wedding! Thank you!

Choosing Rick Bern as our wedding photographer was a great decision, and his images and service were of the highest level. Because I work in the photography industry, I see a wide range of styles and competency levels, and I was extremely particular in choosing a wedding photographer. The image quality and ability to capture the moments were my highest priority, and Rick delivered. And the ease and fun of working with him made the experience all the better. He unobtrusively captured all the shots during the church ceremony, was efficient at getting the family groups together and photographed, and helped us relax and enjoy the formal shots. My bride was extremely thankful at how Rick's demeanor helped to calm her nerves and put her more at ease leading up to the ceremony. And the final images and slideshow were wonderful. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend Rick Bern. He made me (and my husband) feel incredible comfortable during our 1:1 engagement and wedding shoot--and during the ceremony and reception, I barely knew he was there snapping some of the best pics of the evening. Rick was able to capture the love and fun we had on our wedding night, and I can't wait to have another opportunity to work with him in the future.

We hired Rick to shoot our wedding in Middletown this summer. He was immediately really pleasant to interact with via email. After seeing the photos from his website we were sold, we were not disappointed. Rick's photos are incredible. He is a star. We have been over them three times now and each time we discover something new and marvelous. It's quite something how well he managed to capture people's essence, you have to see it to believe it. He absolutely *got* our friends and family the way we know them to be. Everyone was also impressed by the formal collection, especially the large groups (where everyone in the photo looks good!!?) and those where we were being lifted up by our friends are just brilliant. I loved the images he took around the house before the ceremony, the dress shots, and those of our guests as we made an entrance. My wife was absolutely stunning in her dress. It was a special day to remember, and thanks to Rick we will have these images to relive the moments forever. We are grateful for all his hard work and for making us look so good! We live in Monaco but I know we will work with Rick again sometime soon. Highly recommend!!!
