Nothing quite like having an arsenal of knowledge taught to you by one of the best when you get into a tough photography situation”  Kristine Kohl  /


  • “I have been an avid follower of Rich’s YouTube videos, so when I heard that he was holding a workshop on real estate photography, I didn’t hesitate to sign up. Rich’s delivery style in person is very much like what you see in his videos. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and clear in his delivery of the content. He uses real-world examples that are relevant to real estate photographers and brings his years of experience into the classroom. I highly recommend Rich’s workshops!”  Cheryl DeCristofaro /

Alpine Meadows Wedding

Nature, Uncategorized, Weddings, Woodsy Wedding

The Kirstin & Derek Kramer wedding held at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort was truly one of my most special and unique. They rarely hold weddings at this world class ski resort but opened the doors to these two North Shore Tahoe Natives. Kirstin works at the new Ritz Carlton Resort at Northstar and Derek is a firefighter so you know the two of them wanted to make a special wedding close to home.

Kirstin choose to get ready at a friend’s home just down the street from the resort and had a wonderful time with friends and family, providing for some very special photo.

She wore cowboy boots and the most beautiful wedding gown, it suited her lifestyle and personality perfectly.

The day was all about nature and lots of love… I am still in touch with many of her friends and family. that’s the way it turns out with many of my couples, we meet for the wedding and I continue to photograph them through the years.

The ceremony was just the best. With the mountain in the background and clouds filling the sky, it was certainly one of the most beautiful days for wedding photography of my career.

With the help of her sister we got through the private photography time and produced some really wonderful portraits. Smiles were on everyone’s face.
Thank you again Mr. & Mrs. Kramer for the opportunity to capture this most special day of your young lives…
