If I could book Rick to follow me around and document my entire life, I would. Not only does he see beauty in every moment, he sees it in a way nobody else can. He then shares his vision through the most unique and stunning imagery. Creativity aside, Rick is also someone you want to know. Partnered with his lovely (and equally talented) wife Cheryl, their process is flexible, seamless and personal. They are chameleons who are everywhere and nowhere all at once. And they are the perfect combination of fun, artistic and professional, and their work will blow everyone's mind. So, now you know...you're welcome.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about photographer Rick Collins? He did exactly what he said he would do - he showed up early and stayed late and was charming and warm and wonderful. He had a calming presence on me and my family in our scramble to get ready. He was everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. A real ninja. And all of our guests said the same thing: who is that great guy? Certainly he captured all of the usual moments, but when we saw our pictures we were blown away at the amount of beautiful unexpected photographs he got including a lot of things we didn't even see on the day. I guess the biggest compliment is the reaction we get to our books and prints now from friends and family. Everyone comments on how unique the work is and how they wish they had found him before we did. Rick is a master storyteller and everything you need in a photographer. Don't hesitate. Hire him before someone else does.

Rick is an artist, he captured the positive energy and love of our wedding day in an absolutely stunning manner. I didn't want the typical awkwardly posed wedding day shots, or the mass amount of photo editing and retouching. Rick is pure talent and doesn't rely on gimmicks, he captured so many candid shots in a stunning manner, and brought out the beauty and raw emotions of all my loved ones in his photographs. He kept me calm on my wedding day, never got in the way of things, he was literally like a ninja the way he moved around the crowd sneakingly taking photographs…. and he made sure we stayed on track and got me to the alter on time :) For our portraits, he would capture the natural beauty that was surrounding him but yet still make us as a couple shine. At the end of the wedding day you realize how quickly things go by and all the moments that you might not remember. Our wedding album tells our story and captured the entire day, which to me is priceless. Not only is Rick a pro but he is also a genuine spirit. Hire this man, you will not be disappointed.

Rick captured so many special moments during two very special days - our wedding ceremony in a remote town on Vancouver island and then our backyard wedding reception in West Vancouver. Rick and his wife joined us a day before the ceremony to explore and capture some beautiful shots. We absolutely love the pictures. They were both a pleasure to spend time with and extremely professional.

My husband and I generally don't like getting our pictures taken, so we wanted to stay away from poses and capture the moments. He did just that and got some stunning natural shots.

Rick worked with our schedule to meet in advance and stayed connected by email / phone leading up to the day. He showed up to both venues prior the events to plan out the best angles and lighting. During the events Rick provided guidance to family and friends, when needed, which was much appreciated to keep things moving and get the best shots. He was always non-intrusive and checked in periodically to see if there's anything special we wanted. He also told us what time / location would make for the best shots and then pulled us away when it was time. He was quick and provided sufficient direction, still allowing us to enjoy the moment.

I would highly recommend Rick Collins photography! I look forward to working with Rick on our next special occasion.

Rick's photography is incredible, he seems to be able to be everywhere at once, yet never conspicuous. His unique perspective and interesting way of composing the shots makes his work stand out from all the others we looked at - and he is great fun to have around!
Relaxed yet professional. Rick captured the essence of us and everyone around us, and we simply love the photos, all of them!

My Husband and I are still blown away by Rick's talent, and the quality of our images.
Upon meeting Rick, Brian and I felt completely at ease. His calm demeanour, imaginative eye and attention to detail is evident in the final product.
Rick captured our day, moments, laughter and tears whilst always staying in the background. Rick was not phased by bad weather, a rushed schedule or hectic family.
We just really feel that Rick went the extra mile for us, and it really shows in his beautiful, natural photos.

Rick was the best wedding photographer we could have asked for! He came all the way to Mexico over the holidays. We met for the first time three days before the wedding and got on great. I can't imagine finding anyone other than Rick that would have fit in as well. He felt like another guest, all while making sure our wedding was beautifully documented. Rick was also generally helpful, assisting with ceremony timing and whatnot. Despite capturing so many wonderful moments, I never felt that there was a camera in my face. We recommend Rick without a doubt! You'll be sure to love your photos.

From start to finish we were so thrilled with the photography services provided by Rick for our wedding. He has an incredible artistic eye and is truly able to capture the moment while blending into the background. We have had so many compliments from our friends and family as to how amazing the photos are, and we love how they are not the typical staged photos you often get with other wedding photographers. Rick was also incredibly flexible and available for us on the wedding day - capturing the event set up, hiking over rocks and logs to get some amazing pre-ceremony shots of the wedding party, and putting up with some of our wild and crazy guests in the photo booth :) We were so happy with our choice to use Rick, and we feel so lucky to have such quality photos to look back on for many years to come.

My family and friends to this day still rave about what an amazing photographer Rick was and how great he was to work with.

We were very picky when we set off on our research for a wedding photographer. We didn't want pose-y wedding photography with a keen eye to capture special, candid and even quirky moments of the day. We researched for weeks and saw lots of other portfolios and packages that were pricey and the work wasn't up to snuff -- many others use the Instagram/Hipstamatic touch-up effects when it really masked actual talent and even a great camera/technical skills. The end result with RIck exceeded our expectations.

The package fit our budget. We didn't have a large wedding party but, as Rick said he would, he came early and left late so we weren't watching a clock. He was personable and easy going. We had a BBQ rehearsal dinner the night before and invited Rick to join festivities and he took some amazing shots from that event that we hadn't expected. We got hi-res photos and a beautiful photo book in the end. Rick delivered above and beyond and we'd recommend him for any special occasion. He doesn't advertise as much as others do, so he's a really hidden gem!

Rick's candid, joyful approach captured beautiful images of what happened, who was there ... and why. He was respectfully at our side every step of the way; I can almost guarantee you won't find a more passionate, talented photographer anywhere. The cake and flowers won't last, but your wedding photos show future generations who you are and how much you love each other. Of all the things that led up to our big day, the best decision we made was hiring Rick Collins.
