Dave Rich Photography
Dave Rich is an wonderful photographer. Don't be fooled by his disability (loss of practical use of his right arm due to a stroke). He is amazing at his craft and takes some very wonderful pictures. He listens to the bride and groom and gets the shots they want in addition to the mountain of other shots he takes. He offers a CD with all your pictures, and, of course, "doctors" the pictures to make certain they are the best possible shots of your wedding day. We love our CD and he didn't hold any copyrights to our wedding day pictures. Which means that we can reproduce them as much as we want to share with friends and family. His prices are sooooo incredibly reasonable. Also, unlike the photographers who have shot the pictures at the weddings of some of my friends, Dave Rich won't send annoying emails to all of your friends and relatives for the 6 months following the wedding, encouraging them to purchase your pictures at extravagant prices. Dave is in the business of taking pictures, which was very refreshing!
David C. Rich
David C. Rich earned a Master’s degree in physics from Brigham Young University. His introduction to photography began there, as the beginning class in photography was in the physics department. He not only took the class but taught the photo lab for four years.
He became a nuclear physicist and worked at it for many years, enjoying photography as a professional hobby. He also earned a Master’s degree in computer programming, and has worked as a medical imaging programmer and a rocket scientist.
All the while he loved doing scenic, wedding, and family photography. He kept busy taking pictures for over thirty-five years!
In the fall of 2003, David had a sudden, severe hemorrhagic stroke, which ended his scientific career. But his love of photography still thrives and provides him with countless hours of pleasure and work.
He has had to battle with speech and physical disabilities. His speech is sometimes slow. And the stroke affected his right hand, arm, and leg—but his determination to continue doing his photography is indominatable. This is evidenced by his adaptation of holding his camera—and of figuring out how to use the camera with his left hand only, as his right hand is completely dysfunctional. And manufacturers only make right-handed shutters!
David still does wedding and family portraits, but mostly travels with his wife during the summer, taking scenic pictures. He cannot climb well, but somehow manages to capture beautiful views on digital film.
