Ricky and Stacey did an absolutely amazing job taking pictures of our wedding. They were able to capture the magic of the day through every photo. They were great with making the wedding party and guest feel comfortable. Each candid shot looked like it belonged in a magazine. I can't imagine having any other photographers present on our most joyous day.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the photography by Ricky, Stacy and Erica of Ricky Chung Photography. They are extremely professional and we had a wonderful time working with them. They were great in giving direction to everyone on the wedding day - which is essential when trying to organize large groups - and they did so in a friendly and unobtrusive manner. Prior to our wedding day, we sent a list of individuals with whom we wanted photographs, and Stacy did a great job of ensuring that we got each of those pictures. The photographs of our wedding turned out phenomenally and we could not be happier with the results. We have received many compliments on the quality of the photographs from family and friends and we would highly recommend Ricky Chung Photography to anyone getting married in the Baltimore area.

Ricky and Stacy did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding photography. After viewing some of Ricky's work online, I knew immediately that I wanted him to do our wedding photos for us. Ricky and Stacy traveled all the way to New York to take our wedding photos for us and I couldn't be more grateful for how flexible they were. They knew exactly what they were doing and had many helpful suggestions about what positions looked best and what places the pictures should be taken at. My husband and I had never had professional pictures taken of us before and were quite clueless but Ricky and Stacy made us feel very comfortable and at ease and it made the whole process so much more fun and enjoyable. The pictures as a result were absolutely breathtaking and we couldn't have been more happy with the end result. These pictures are going to be with us for the rest of our lives and we are so happy that Ricky and Stacy were there to expertly transform our pictures into something that we can show off forever. I would recommend Ricky Chung Photography a million times over and I can't thank them enough for giving us such beautiful wedding photos.

I had the pleasure of having Ricky, Erica, and Stacey photograph my wedding, and I wouldn't have had it any other way! They were the absolute most professional, caring, excited and talented people and they did the absolute best job with capturing everything I wanted to remember on my wedding day. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the photos - there are SO many! And we are just in the process of starting to share them with all of our friends and family who also have nothing but positive words to say! Overall, best decision to spend a little extra on photography- it is so worth it! (Plus you get more than one photographer so more options for photos!) Love them!

We had an excellent experience with Ricky and his crew for our wedding last year. They came all the way from Maryland to New Jersey for our day. They were efficient and very professional from the first time we met them. We had a great engagement session and they were very patient since we were working in between surprise rain storms. They were a lot of fun and easy to work with for our wedding day. Ricky and his crew are very talented and captured every special moment. We have so many wonderful pictures with a beautiful album that we will cherish always. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Worth every penny!

Ricky, Erica, and Stacy of Ricky Chung Photography were professional yet fun, provided clear direction when it was needed but also encouraged us to interact with one another naturally, and helped to make our wedding day relaxed and wonderful. They work very well together and are an extremely talented team.

My husband and I are not accustomed to being in front of a camera; Ricky made us feel comfortable and got some absolutely breathtaking candid shots. We sent a list of photos we wanted taken to Erica ahead of time and they ensured that all of those requests were met. They also had lots of ideas for other shots to capture the beauty of the location where we got married and all of the details we had worked so hard to incorporate into our wedding.

When we received our pictures we also loved that they had taken lots of great pictures of our guests - both candid and posed - and we appreciated that. We felt that our wedding day was about our communities and loved ones coming together - not just about us; Ricky understood that and really captured that feeling in his photos!

I am blown away by the quality and beauty of the images Ricky and his team took. We absolutely love them and are having difficulty pulling out specific photos to send to everyone and to create photo albums - I find myself wanting to include every single photo - and there are a lot of them!

The entire process - from first meeting Ricky, Erica and Stacy to receiving our photos - has been delightful and easy. They have great personalities and are very fun to work with. They are also talented professionals and provide an incredible product.

My husband and I highly recommend Ricky Chung Photography and can guarantee you will be thrilled with the service you receive and with the beautiful photos Ricky will capture and create for you.

There are not enough kind words I could use to describe RCP's services for our wedding. We actually engaged them because my husband was a groomsmen in a wedding that they photographed, and he was so impressed with both their professionalism and their patience. Well, that experience was par for the course! From our first meeting with Ricky and Erica (Ricky's sister and assistant photographer), we felt confident in their skills and absolutely trusted their guidance through the wedding process. Their rates are incredibly competitive (probably under market, if you ask me!), and they stayed at our wedding/reception for far longer than the agreed upon time. They showed up on time and ready to work - and our venue was 2.5 hours from their typical venue location. They even showed up with a third photographer in tow so that they didn't miss anything (we had only contracted for 2!). In terms of their product, they deliver stunning photographs and employ many different lenses to get different feels. We were married during a busy wedding season, yet we had our photos back within 6 weeks of the wedding date! Erica is very responsive and always replied to my emails or calls within 24 hours -- something that is invaluable to a bride! After seeing my wedding pictures, I wondered how they even got around to so many locations to capture it all. I know they ate dinner that night, but I still couldn't tell you when because as far as I am aware, they captured every moment. From soup to nuts, I felt like they really cared about doing the best job possible and not just about doing their duty.

What really puts the RCP team over the top is how kind they are. Erica and Ricky were so patient during the planning process, and on the day of, they added to the serenity of what was such a special day. There was not an abundance of coaching or staging, rather they encouraged us to interact naturally and our pictures are all the better for it. Both Ricky and Erica are friendly, and it was a pleasure spending the time leading up to the wedding with them. It was so evident that their team truly cares about their work.

We absolutely recommend them as photographers - through and through.

There are not enough kind words I could use to describe RCP's services for our wedding. We actually engaged them because my husband was a groomsmen in a wedding that they photographed, and he was so impressed with both their professionalism and their patience. Well, that experience was par for the course! From our first meeting with Ricky and Erica (Ricky's sister and assistant photographer), we felt confident in their skills and absolutely trusted their guidance through the wedding process. Their rates are incredibly competitive (probably under market, if you ask me!), and they stayed at our wedding/reception for far longer than the agreed upon time. They showed up on time and ready to work - and our venue was 2.5 hours from their typical venue location. They even showed up with a third photographer in tow so that they didn't miss anything (we had only contracted for 2!). In terms of their product, they deliver stunning photographs and employ many different lenses to get different feels. We were married during a busy wedding season, yet we had our photos back within 6 weeks of the wedding date! Erica is very responsive and always replied to my emails or calls within 24 hours -- something that is invaluable to a bride!
