Hey hey! How’s it going? My name is Rico, coffee enthusiast, concert lover, and proud cat dad. Oh yeah, and one more, storyteller.
So real quick, I often get asked how I got into shooting weddings and the answer is quite simple. I was inspired by my green box. Let me explain; growing up, one of my favorite memories was pulling out a green box that we had in the storage closet full of old home movies ranging from birthdays, vacations, and even my parents' weddings. Now, none of these videos were what I could consider being a high production, but even still, I loved being able to relive all of these amazing memories, and seeing my family all together, smiling, and having fun, just made me feel so happy. These videos were always special to me and meant even more whenever these videos became the only way I could revisit some family members who are no longer with us.
Fast forward a few years and now I'm the one creating these memories for new families to have and enjoy. Thanks to my little green box, I’ve been able to be a small part of some amazing couple’s most magical day! Not only did I love telling my couples stories, but my clients continued to tell me how much they loved being able to revisit their wedding day, to listen to their vows again, and how they loved being able to see their loved ones gathered together in one place again. It truly meant the world to them and it was at that moment, I knew I had found my calling. Since then, I’ve focused on fine-tuning my craft to be able to give my couples the best experience I can so that, one day down the road, they can look back and reminisce about their wedding day.
