“Lisa absolutely blew our minds when she photographed our wedding. She was so great! She was so enthusiastic and drove to the Bay area to shoot our engagement photos from the Sierra Foothills. She just knows how to make everything work, from beginning to end she made sure our event was remembered perfectly without getting in the way. EVER. So not only is she invisible when she needs to be, she is also fun, energetic and dedicated.”
“Lisa is amazing! She has captured moments of love, anticipation and excitement since our engagement 8 years ago up until the latest addition of our 2nd daughter at the beginning of this year. It takes a true artist to be able to spot that perfect burst of light and illuminate the most candid and sincere moments; whether capturing the details and energy of a wedding, making a new mother feel at ease as they navigate new terrain or patiently guiding a bouncing two year old into focus she can do it all with grace and ease. Lisa’s professional talent and visualization is unparalleled. Inviting Lisa to capture your precious moments will surely bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart for years to come.”
“You made me feel beautiful and made me smile and laugh and be comfortable in my own (very stretched) skin. You were patient and kind and your talent and knowledge showed in all that you did tonight. You have my favorite quality in a person…. you are easy. You’re comfortable and an instant friend. And I know it seems I fall in love with everyone I meet, but Jake most definitely does not and the first words out of his mouth after dropping you off were, “yeah, she’s awesome.” And that…. that’s really saying something. So my friend, thank you.
“Thank you for capturing my child through ‘a mother’s eye’.”
“When we first met with her we knew we had to have her. She has such a unique eye and captured some of the most gorgeous pictures that we could have ever hoped for! Every time we met with Lisa she was so comfortable to be around. It didn’t feel like we were taking pictures with a photographer, it was more like being with a friend!”
“Lisa and her team photographed my cousin’s wedding last month and did an absolutely amazing job. They were flawlessly unobtrusive, though from looking at the pics it seems like they were everywhere, at every moment. The pictures are beautiful, personal, emotional, and perfectly capture the authentic love that filled the day. As the bridal couple lives in San Francisco and the wedding was in Sebastopol, I was delighted to discover that Lisa is based near Sacramento, where I live! Nor-Cal, hire this woman and her team. You’ll be so glad you did.”
“These photos live, sing, breathe, dance, sometimes shout with life. They’re art!”
“Your love of life, creativity and passion are shining already and Miss Lily is not…5 hours old! Amazing. Thank you.”
“Gotta chime in, her work is magnificent! She is super chill and makes extraordinary images from every day life. Love Lisa!”
“Our photographer, Lisa Richmond was AWESOME! We booked her for our engagement photos, which I highly recommend! Dottie and Lisa were more than just a photographer or florist, they were personable and caring. They went above and beyond what the contract stated. As the bride I was pretty emotional before the ceremony and they both were there supporting me and cared so much. It’s hard to describe moments like that…but let’s just say not many people who are contracted for your big day would go out of their way like that. “
Every day I get to capture people as they move through time and many of the moments that matter. As an artist I too grow, change and move through time too. I am continually awed by those that allow me the honor to capture their love and life with my camera. I’m also incredibly inspired by outdoor adventures, travel, playful people, live music and amazing light. Let’s go find it!
