Key West Photographer: Rick Fatica Photography
Rick did an unbelievable job with our wedding...he did it with only 10 days notice after our original photographer was in an accident...we got an elite photographer with a great eye and superb bed side manner.
I can't say enough about Rick and the job that he did for our wedding on 2.12.13 in Key West. We were stuck without a photographer just two weeks prior to our wedding and we contacted Rick to see if he had availability. He was available and very compassionate to our desires to help make our wedding memorable. He took extremely professional photographs and was patient with our wedding of 51 total people and all our photograph requests. I would definitely recommend him for wedding photography and even other events and we will forever remember our wedding because of the job he did. We received the link to our photos within a few days and the DVD copy is already in the mail. Katherine and Blake wedding 2.12.13!
Rick was amazing. We had a quick elopement wedding that lasted about 30min, during which time Rick took a ton of pictures for us. After the ceremony, he allowed us to take as many pictures as we wanted and was really patient with us. He was also able to give us a DVD with the pictures fully touched up with effects by the next morning and there were over 700 pictures!!! The pictures came out so great and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We fully recommend Rick to anyone looking for a photographer in Key West.
Rick was our photographer for our destination wedding in Key West in Dec. 2011. He was excellent in all areas!! He's the nicest guy anyone could be around. Our guests all loved him. He didn't miss one moment of our ceremony or the reception. He worked with us since we were on a budget too which was very helpful! He also took casual pictures of us the night before on the beach as well as our rehearsal dinner at Southernmost Cafe. We had our pictures back 2 days after the wedding and they were all wonderful! We would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!
With only three months to plan our wedding and challenges due to being in different locations (the wedding in key west, my fiancé in Miami, and myself in Virginia), I’d say that we are very lucky to have found Rick to photograph our wedding!
On the recommendation from our wedding site coordinator and the wonderful brides that left reviews at weddingwire.com, we decided to contact Rick. One of our biggest concerns in planning the wedding was the budget for a photographer. When we discussed this with him, he was completely willing to work with our budget and our needs to tailor a package for us. In fact, we found that his price was the most reasonable for a comparable package of ANY of the photographer’s in the area. We were sold.
More importantly, though, he treated every aspect of our dealings with extreme professionalism. Any question, big or small, was always answered within 24 hours, BEFORE and AFTER we contracted with him. When we informed him that we were running late to our pre-wedding photo shoot, he kept reassuring us that he was “ours for the day.” At the wedding he was properly attired and he was very courteous with all of our guests. He did not miss a beat.
He is a versatile photographer, too. When we were first considering Rick to shoot our wedding, we went to his website to view his albums. We were impressed that he was experienced in capturing people in a range of settings. We were not disappointed when we received our pictures. He took many beautiful and traditional pictures during the ceremony AND he took lots of fun, action shots that conveyed the excitement of the reception.
Rick clearly knows his way around Photoshop as well. My fi and I had been concerned that our pictures would be too dark (We had planned the end of the ceremony to coincide with the sunset, but there was a snafu and we started late…). Well, the images looked as if they had been taken in a brighter light, but did not have that highly edited feel. The turnaround time for 2000+ “wrong time of day” pictures, you may wonder? Less than a two weeks.
If I could give a Rick a 10 out of 5, I would. He is that good! Needless to say, I am pleased that we chose Rick Fatica as our Wedding Photographer and would whole-heartedly recommend him for anyone planning nuptials in Key West.
Best of luck to all the brides reading this!
Rick was fantastic! I was a bit nervous as my fiance and I were travelling from London to Key West to get married and had to find all our vendors online without any sort of personal recommendations from friends, etc. Rick was recommended by another photographer in Key West (who was charging quite a bit more) - I had a look at his website and his photos were great so I felt pretty confident booking him, all done via email. We spoke for the first time just a few days before the wedding and he was very helpful in suggesting how to make things easy on the day. We had a small party of 7 and our wedding was at 12:30PM on a public beach on Dec 31st, New Year's. It lasted just an hour, with us having champagne on the beach after the ceremony but we got back over 150 photos! Rick got great candid shots and was really flexible - we suggested photo ideas and so did he for the posed photos. And the quality of the pictures was amazing! I was a bit worried, with us being on a public beach and the fact that it was such a sunny day and high noon (thought maybe some of the pics would be overexposed) - I had absolutely nothing to worry about!!! The colours in the photos are incredible and Rick even went as far as to Photoshop out some of the tourists sunning in the sand behind us so we almost look like we had a private beach! On top of all that, our photos were ready to be picked up the next day! I genuinely couldn't be happier - I would recommend Rick to anyone. He's talented and just a really nice person on top of all that.
Rick did an amazing job photographing our wedding. Our photos are beautiful, and he was a joy to work with. Rick got every shot we asked for and many we hadn't even imagined. We are so glad we hired Rick, and our pictures are amazing.
Rick Fatica is a fantastic photographer and a wonderful person. Of all the crazy details I felt I had to worry about on my wedding day, having great lasting pictures was not one of them! Rick is utterly dependable, worth your money and very professional. One picture he captured of my husband and I kissing hangs on the wall in our house and my little girl constantly points to it because it is just so beautiful! Don't pass this guy up brides & grooms to be!
Portfolio on website looks amazing.
