"We hired Keri as our wedding photog in 2012. There is so much I can say but AMAZING really encompasses how we feel about our photos. I told my husband that the photos were the one thing that had to be done just right. I knew we wouldn’t remember the flower arrangements or table layout in 10, 20 years but we would look at and remember our wedding through photos.
Keri really heard what we wanted and added her creative spin and expertise to our list of wants. Her attention to detail with regard to our setting (golf course in the Palm Springs area), lighting, and every little detail was spot on. We get so many compliments on our photos and my response every time “that was our photographer’s idea”! Plus, she’s easy to work with. She made it fun, even for the groomsman. She shot our wedding and did a second photo shoot the day after with our bridal party at a location in La Quinta, CA. Again, her attention to detail and using the natural setting (sand dunes against the mountain) and lighting was better than I could have imagined. Check out our photos on her website!
Looking at our wedding album is so much fun. We will be hiring her for family photos soon!"
"Keri’s ability to capture those moments you hope to remember forever is unmatched. I look back at the photographs she took and I see the joy in my husband’s eyes, and the mischief in my son’s smile; I see those things that mean so much to me and that Keri was able to capture forever. Keri is easy to work with, relaxed and professional. Every session we’ve had with her has been fun and engaging. I hope Keri is able to photograph our family for many years to come!"
""Keri took our family photos and I have to say they are gorgeous! She is very good with children, helping find a creative location, using fun, unusual and creative poses, and she is also very professional. She was so wonderful to work with in all aspects of the photo shoot and our album looks beautiful. Every time I look at it I am thrilled at how she captured our family so perfectly. All of our silliness, happiness, love, and beauty. I would recommend Keri to anyone looking for a creative artist who loves what she does. Thank you!"
"Keri was fantastic! My wife and I got married at Pasadena City Hall and we hired Keri via Let's Get Married SoCal. It was Keri's first time shooting that location, but she had a great eye for the place. She captured the best moments of the ceremony--her attention to detail and unique camera angles were very impressive! After the ceremony we took more photos on the grounds and the surrounding neighborhood. She was just very comfortable to work with. We had a great time with her! She informed us our pictures would be ready in a few weeks, but got us a couple teasers right away to share with our family/friends/social media. We really appreciated that! The rest of the photos were delivered in a timely fashion and she even went above and beyond and sent us a personalized flash drive with all the photos on it AND made a YouTube slide show with the best pictures and the video clips she got of our family's reaction to our elopement. It was such a nice surprise!! Overall, we had such a wonderful experience with Keri. I would definitely hire her again!"
"Keri was our photographer for our wedding in April 2016 and we're so pleased to have found her. As we had a destination wedding, we did not actually meet Keri until the day of our wedding but in the lead up to the day, she was very responsive via email and understood what we wanted from the day which made us feel very comfortable with our choice. On the day, she was friendly and professional, even our guests commented on how lovely she is! She made everyone feel comfortable and her passion for photography is evident in her work. Following our wedding, our photos arrived in the time frame promised and they are amazing! My husband and I are so happy with all of them and how they capture our wedding day perfectly. I would highly recommend Keri to any future bride and groom. We're so pleased she was there to capture our day."
"We got photography from Keri as part of our package with Let's Get Married SoCal, and we were very happy with her! We are both anxious people but she was so fun, friendly, and positive that we had a great time taking pictures with her! She got down on the ground to get the shots she wanted...I was impressed!"
5/5 for Minister Marie and her photography master Keri Rico. Minister Marie was extremely responsive throughout the process and really took the time to tailor the ceremony to us. The Sweetheart Package SoCal was the perfect option and it could not have been any easier for us! Keri Rico was so fun to work with and was able to perfectly capture our special day!
In one word: perfect! Two words? perfect and FUN!
When I found Minister Marie's website, it was definitely love at first click. I just had a great feeling that she would make us feel comfortable on our big day (I was right, of course!). In addition to writing a wonderful personalized ceremony that represented us beautifully, the planning phase was just a delight and completely stress free. Any question I could have had was answered before I even asked it! Her love for her job really shines through and she was just great to be around.
Keri was absolutely wonderful! Funny, talented, enthusiastic and super passionate about her craft. She made us feel like movie stars and super at ease in front of the camera. She had great ideas for poses and was taking her time to make sure she got the right shot. Warning: she does make the cutest sounds when she is excited about a particular shot. This is what makes her particularly awesome.
I am forever grateful to them for making our wedding day exactly as I imagined. They were just the absolute best. THANK YOU!
