Geelong Newborn Portraits

One of the most amazing things I’ve been lucky enough to photograph this year are newborn portraits. Photographing a child that’s just a few days old and seeing the love that the new parents have for the child is definitely one of those experiences that stays with you forever. Ultimately I also get to see the child grow from a newborn to a toddler. Knowing that my portraits will grace the walls of my clients for many years is one of the most fulfilling things that a professional photographer can experience. Having been a photographer in Geelong for many years now, occasionally you also see those newborns out and about with their parents as primary school students!! Where does the time go? Here I want to share with you an image from a portrait session I photographed not long ago. Little Isla was only three days old when this was taken, so a new experience has begun in seeing her grow. I have not long introduced a new product into my range. Something that’s fairly unique to each family because it can be stylised to suit their own taste. As you may know, all of my Art Books are hand made in Italy, so I wanted a product that would give people something more than a wall portrait. I now have available my new Baby Book. It can be designed from one portrait session or, as a few of my clients have chosen to do, design it over the course of multiple sessions. It’s a bit difficult to grasp the concept of the Baby Book, so you are more than welcome to visit the studio and have a look for yourself. You can also register your details Here to receive an invitation to the new product launch coming soon.

Geelong Styled Wedding Photography

I was lucky enough to have worked with some very talented ladies over the weekend for a styled wedding photography session. Megan from that blonde chick and Simone from La De Da Events helped in styling a photographic session. It was kind of a chance for all of us to try something new without the pressure of an actual wedding day. There are many times when I would love to try something new, but a wedding isn’t the right place to be experimenting! So over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing the results of the shoot. As always, Megans hair styles just blew me away. A mega talented stylist whom I can recommend to any bride to be.  So this was a little bit different for me as usually I include the groom as much as I can on an actual wedding day, but this was all about the bride! Also a big thanks to the girls who helped make the day happen, Imogen and Emily..great brides and to Secrets Jewellery of Melbourne for supplying the jewellery for the girls. They’re in the Royal Arcade for anyone wanting to see their stunning range of jewellery. By the way, it was good of the Geelong Advertiser to runs  short story on our shoot today!!

Geelong photographer- Wedding

This weeks wedding video is of Anthony and Jessica’s wedding. Their wedding took place in Geelong and, as you will see in the clip, some beautiful wedding portraits were captured in and around the Geelong waterfront. Even though it was quite a chilly day (It was June after all) the bridal party had a ball. A special thanks goes to Panache cafe who were kind enough to let us use their location for some photos of the bride and groom while the rest of the bridal party enjoyed a nice warm coffee! The wedding ended with the couple celebrating their reception at Capri receptions in North Geelong. I hope you enjoy this video that captures their wedding day.

Christmas Specials 2014

It’s Christmas Specials time!! Originally I had allocated 30 portrait sessions for the Christmas specials, but 11 were filled prior to the release, so only 19 spots remain. Once they’re taken, that’s it. I pride my studio on photographing quality over quantity. So, as part of the specials this year, you will receive a free sitting, free Christmas cards and a $50 voucher for you to give to someone as a present. In other words, not only will you be having your portraits taken, you’re doing your Christmas shopping at the same time!! Plus, one lucky family will win a 16×24″ wall portrait valued at $600 as part of their order. If that’s not the best deal in Geelong, then I don’t know what is! 😉 You can book in for a family portrait, newborn or child portraits, a maternity portrait or a glamour portrait. Please find all the details below and feel free to Contact the studio Here to make a booking or for any enquiries. If you have already booked a session prior to the specials, you will automatically receive them when you come in.  Like I said though, spots are limited and the special will end once all places are filled or on the 31st of December.  Don’t forget you can always join us on Facebook to stay up to date with all the happenings at the studio.

Geelong photographer-Rebecca & Tim’s wedding

When people think wedding photography in Geelong, they automatically think of the waterfront. Truth is, that’s just the tip of the iceberg with stunning locations in and around the town. Rebecca and Tim’s wedding took place just out of Geelong in Little River, and what a stunning location they chose! The spot had everything, beautiful open landscapes, a home that was just stunning for their wedding portraits and a bridal party that just wanted to have fun. At the end of the day, we all had a ball and, as this short video of their wedding album shows you, we ended up with some amazing photography that they will now treasure for the rest of their lives. Rebecca and Tim now have a gorgeous little girl who I have been fortunate enough to also photograph. I can only imagine what Matilda will one day say when she see’s her mummy and daddy’s wedding album!!

Geelong Photography – Wedding

A while ago I started posting my “Photo of the day”. As it turned out, I found that especially for weddings, there was so many nice photos that I wanted to post, and not enough days in the week to post! So I thought that alongside Photo of the day, I might just start Wedding video of the week. The majority of my weddings are in Geelong, but I thought I’d start today with Alecia and Mark’s Melbourne wedding. We all had some great ideas about where we would go after their service for their wedding photography session. I think you’d agree that their album is nothing short of stunning. I hope you enjoy viewing this clip as much as I enjoyed photographing their very special day.

There’s always something magical in Geelong at Christmas time and this year is certainly no different. I have already had quite a few enquiries regarding Christmas family portrait packages. As with all my specials, there is only a limited quantity available. I pride my work on being available as a “Quality rather than quantity” product.

Have your memories captured forever by Geelong’s most awarded portrait and wedding photographer.

Pre-release sessions will be available until the 21st of October or until all taken. Please contact Photography by Riccardo  by email to reserve your spot. Gift vouchers will also be available.

Angela & Robert’s wedding day

There are some weddings where it doesn’t matter what happens, you just can’t wipe the smile off the brides face, and this was one of those weddings. From memory, I think the top temperature that day hit about 42 degrees, but I didn’t hear anyone complain. Everyone in the bridal party was having too much fun, after all, isn’t that what weddings are all about? Following is Angela and Robert’s wedding day as told by Angela.

Briefly tell us a bit about your wedding day
It was a hot day on our wedding day. We got married at St Mary of the Angels Basilica (Geelong) and reception was at Capri receptions. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face I was on such a high knowing that I was getting ready to go and marry the love of my life.
What was your favourite part of the day?
Our  favourite part was when we did photos. I normally hate having photos taken of me but Riccardo made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and made it fun.
We had a ball.
Why was it important to you to select a professional photographer for your wedding day?
It was important because pictures tell a thousand stories they are always looked at and it  brings back memories of our special day  and Riccardo is such a talented photographer he captures all the special moments.
How did you select Photography by Riccardo to record your wedding ?
I knew Riccardo was the best in town by word of mouth.
When I went to book the reception I saw a photo on their wall. It was of a bride and groom and Riccardo had taken the shot, I absolutely  loved it and that just
Made me want Riccardo to do our photos so I rang him that day and meet in his studio that week and booked him I was so happy that we had him booked, my husband was too.
What advice have you got for bride and grooms to be ?
Don’t worry about any little things that might go wrong it all comes together in the end.just focus on the fact that you are marrying your soul mate,women/ man of your dreams.
Tell your readers how you felt when you first saw your wedding photos?
We were  blown away,  they were absolutely amazing we thought Wow  and looking at the album brought us back to our wedding day. All we can say is amazing thank you so much Riccardo for your hard and amazing work .
