Rick made our special day, memorable. The shots he took were each super unique to us. I have so many I had printed because I couldn't pick one favorite!!! He also took so many pictures of the wedding and reception, Mike and I were able to see what was going on while we were doing other things. Totally recommend!

We looked around and found the best deals we could find and then went to Rick who beat them all by more than $50. We got over 700 pictures and we looked at all of them blown up on a big screen TV. The quality was consistently excellent and without spending painful hours waiting while he messed with lights or whatever. I know this looks fake with all the 5 star ratings but I am not his mom and he really is that good. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I had high hopes for Rick when I selected him for my September 2016 wedding. He had previously shot beautiful photos at a friend's wedding. Somehow between bringing him on and my actual wedding day though, something changed. I spoke to Rick the week before the wedding and said I was going to prepare a shot list, as I have a large family to which he responded, "I am a professional, I don't need a shot list." Rick agreed to arrive on wedding day a little bit after noon, and did not arrive until close to 1:30, which meant that my bridesmaids and I delayed our getting ready until he was there to capture it. I had to specifically ask him to take posed photos of us in our robes, and got one shot of myself and the bridesmaids before the wedding. None of the fun shots you would expect. The photos that Ricks partner took of the groomsmen getting ready were fantastic however. I later found out that in the middle of my wedding weekend Rick decided that he was going to retire, so instead of my beautiful photos that I was hoping for, I got canned "formals," every single one of them looking the same.

My wedding reception was at a winery, where I hoped to take additional photos, but Rick was no where to be found and the sun quickly set. Rick was constantly sitting down, saying his partner would get the shots. Shortly before 9, Rick asked me if we were doing a grand exit to which I responded no and he left.

The next day Rick shot a few photos at my wedding brunch. On the way to the breakfast, he found an abandoned church. Obviously his true passion. In the middle of breakfast with family that had traveled from out of town, Rick asked my brother to accompany him to this church with a ladder so that he could get inside. Wouldn't stop talking about it until it happened. So, instead of spending time with family from out of town, my brother went.

I did not post this review at the time, because Rick claimed to be retiring.

Rick has a very unique talent for capturing those "extra" special moments that you didn't even remember, until you see his photos. I had chills when I looked at the finished photos and could literally relive the entire day! He's not merely a Photographer...HE IS an ARTIST with an eye that goes beyond the obvious "posed" photos to the nuances of the "love" that will be revealed under his masterful expertise! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed, when you hire him. Thanks Rick for sharing your rare talent with us on our wedding day!

Rick Martin is a fantastic photographer. Finding the right photographer was the most important thing for my husband and I, because the photos are the one thing you have to look back on to remember that day. So we interviewed several before making a decision. When I was looking at Rick Martin's page, what really drew me to it was the originality of his photos. He captured things, little moments, that I just didn’t see when looking at other photographer’s pages. His photos also had such a creative, artistic element about them that made his work stand out from other photographer’s sites. What sold us on Rick Martin upon meeting him was his true passion for the profession and how accommodating he was. He suggested taking our engagement session at Lake Anna, which is where my husband and I met and where he later proposed. Most photographers we had spoken to were unwilling to travel, at least not without extensive fees, yet here he was suggesting it. He also worked with us on several other aspects that were important to my husband and I. In the end, my husband and I were very happy with the results of our wedding photos. When you look through our photos it really tells the story of the day in perfect detail. He captured some amazing shots that are worthy of a wedding magazine spread. Also another final, very important feature, he is very quick at getting you your photos back. I have heard horror stories from friends that it took months and months to get their wedding photos back. Rick had them back to us within weeks. I would recommend him to family and friends in a heartbeat.

Rick came very highly recommended to me by a friend. Not only does he have an amazing eye but he edits pictures like no other. I look forward to using him in the future! I spent a LOT of time researching a photographer and wanted someone who could do much more than take a picture of a group of people standing in a line. I really cant express how much I appreciate Rick and his team. They captured some GREAT pictures from our wedding and I cant wait to see the rest!!

Rick and his partner were wonderful to work with, and they have an eye for what makes a beautiful shot. They took wonderful engagement and wedding pictures. My friends and family have been very complimentary, and we couldn't be happier with our wonderful pictures.
