GARRETT RICHARDSON

Weddings can be stressful, let's keep things light so you can be fully present and soak up every moment.

THE EXPERIENCE

COLLECTIONS & SERVICES

MY PHILOSOPHY

YOUR BOUTIQUE EXPERIENCE WILL BE TAILORED FROM START TO FINISH.

You both want to feel relaxed in front of the camera, especially on your wedding day!  That’s a priority for me. I’ll guide you through every step, with plenty of direction, so your true personalities can shine. After all, the most natural, timeless, and candid moments happen when you're able to be authentically you.

WORKING TOGETHER

I will work closely with your wedding planner and vendors covering logistics and your timeline so you can be present and focus on feeling celebrated. 

WE're the perfect match

IF

You're a free-spirit but committed to the love of your life. The wedding is going to be a dream, and your marriage is the foundation of everything.

She values being loyal, curious and kind yet adventurous and free-spirited. She saves old photos, ticket stubs, and text messages because it marks milestones of a journey. Your perfect morning involves a coffee in one hand, mimosa in the other, wrapped in a cozy robe believing the best days are ahead.

You’re intentional with your vows because they inspire and inform your journey ahead. And the reception, food, and music, really matters because you want your guests to feel taken care of and you’re ready to get out there and dance at one of the best parties of your life.

He is funny and patient and present and steady. He always finds ways to cherish her - even in the days that seem mundane. With a passionate and nurturing voice, he calls her to new adventures. 

You're storytellers at heart and globetrotters by foot, you’ve collected experiences along the way that pull you back to these moments - because you’re curious about others, you've stored up the faces of people who were once strangers and quickly turned into friends.

She’s playful and likes the finer things of life. Walking barefoot in the sand she moves with elegance and grace. Her closet carries a timeless outfit for every occasion and she seeks wisdom with a humble heart.

Hospitality comes naturally; you love finding reasons to celebrate and enjoy creating warm and inviting spaces for people to feel loved. You speak well of each other, even when you’re not together.

Together, you’re down to earth, positive, romantic, optimistic, altruistic, and like to have a good time.

He’s happy with who he is but quicker to honor others.

My husband and I worked with Garrett four different times this past year: for our engagement photos, church ceremony, rehearsal dinner and wedding day in San Diego, and all of our photos turned out fantastic! There are not enough good things to say about Garrett. Not only is he a great photographer, but he is also so incredibly kind, responsive, and down to earth. He genuinely cares about his clients & wants you to love your photos and the process.

"We know we will treasure all of these wonderful photos forever."

Garrett perfectly captured our beach wedding. He and his team made us look and feel amazing! Our amazing wedding pictures were featured in multiple publications; no doubt because of Garrett's fantastic attention to detail and gift for composition. Not only is Garrett an amazing photographer but he was super fun to have at the wedding!

"You can truly tell he loves what he does and has extensive knowledge of each venue"

- DANA, BRIDE

Garrett photographed both our engagement images & wedding day. The results were stunning! Garrett has a rare talent to capture the most important moments in life. Garrett has many connections all over California. He was able to bring on an assistant photographer to help shoot our big day, which was over 500 miles from San Diego! I would highly recommend using Garrett Richardson as your professional photographer for any occasion!

"We will always cherish our wedding memories through Garrett's artistry ..."

- RYAN, GROOM

There are truly not enough good words to say about Garrett. His work is outstanding, yes, but his personality and genuineness are what make him great. My husband and I wanted a photographer who we connected with, someone we would enjoy having at our wedding. We immediately found that in Garrett. We absolutely could not have picked a better person to work with. We gained amazing wedding photos, and a really great friend too.

"Garrett is so passionate about his work and SO fun to have around during your wedding ..."
