I first heard of RicOrnel from my Matron of Honor and I am so thankful that she recommended them.
First, Art did my bridal portraits and all I can say is that he is wonderful. He worked with my schedule, made me comfortable and took some of the most beautiful bridal pictures that I could have hoped for.
Second, on my wedding day, Amelia made me feel so comfortable while she was doing the videography and took some amazing shots that I will cherish forever.
They also worked with my budget and helped me pick the best package for my husband and I.
I am truly grateful for their professionalism and expertise, I will forever cherish my beautiful photos.
Thank you RicOrnel!!!!

Art and Amelia were helpful and knowledgable. They are a hsuband-wife team, so they understand what is important on your wedding day and know exactly what to capture. They were very professional the entire night and we hardly even knew they were there! A couple of weeks before the wedding we asked if they could stay a couple hours longer than we originally planned, and they were prompt in responding so we were able to plan accordingly. After they wedding, the kept up communication to let us know how the editing process was going, and if there were issues. Overall, an outstanding experience and they really captured the fun and love at our wedding!

art and amelia were so wonderful. I am so glad we decided to book them for our wedding. we had been stressing for several months as to which videographer to use and who will be taking our photographs. we wanted someone who would be able to capture our vision, yet wouldn't break the bank. then after a few months of searching, this duo contacted us via wedding wire and suggested their services. we were trying to be very careful on who we booked, and ricornel productions didn't have very many reviews. but after meeting up with them for our consultation, we knew they'd be a perfect match... they were fun to talk to, our personalities meshed, and they seemed to understand our vision. so we threw caution to the wind and booked them on the spot. i was so happy and excited after our initial visit, that i couldn't wait to see how their work turned out. plus as a husband and wife team, they understand couples and all the stress that comes with weddings.

we communicated mostly thru email in the months prior to the wedding and they were good on responding and answering all of our questions thoroughly. they were also very flexible in meeting our needs and open to any suggestions we made. come the day of the wedding, they were prompt, efficient, professional, and polite. they made sure not to disrupt the flow of the wedding and on several occasions, we even forgot they were there. when we got the final product, we couldn't have been happier. the pictures were amazing and the video was exactly the style we had imagined. by the way, i absolutely love, love, love our newlywed pictures. we were so delighted that they were able to capture our style and personalties in their work. they even threw in a few extra fun surprises.

the only complaint that I have, and the only reason i didn't give a perfect score, is that it took a little over 2 months to get back our final edited pictures and video. not sure if this is typical or not, since we don't have much experience with the industry. but they were quick in sending us online proofs that kept me patient in the meantime. other than that, they were one of the best vendors we worked with throughout our wedding planning and i'd highly recommend them to anyone.

Thank you, for all your hard work. Your photos and video captured the bueaty and love we shared. I'm so happy that I can relive the pure joy of this experience. My only regret is that I can't jump into the pictures or video and spend more time with my dad. My mother is very greatful to have this keepsake to treasure my dads memory. You made us feel like valued customers, surprised us with your attention to detail, catered to our likes and wants, and somehow made our wedding more bueatiful than it was.

They took beautiful pictures and video. My family and I really enjoyed their work. The only negative thing I have to say is that a few pictures I wanted taken at the church were not taken. Overall though the pictures were beautiful and the video was great! When we watched the video everyone cried! What a great way to capture such a special day! I can tell they worked really hard on the editing. They were easy to work with and showed up on time to everything. They also took Bridal portraits for me a month after the wedding free of charge. Those turned out great as well. They looked so professional, like a Bridal ad. I would highly recommend RicOrnel Productions to any bride and groom.
