  • Richard Wood did our wedding photos. We did a destination wedding in Napa, and our venue recommended him. We are so glad we took their advice! Richard was very professional and helpful in helping us choose the wedding photo package that was right for us. He took the time to have very detailed phone calls with me about his whole process and what to expect on the day of so that I would feel comfortable. He gave us a photography timeline for the day of, which made everything easy and smooth. On our wedding day, we were able to stick to the timeline and everything ran on time. The whole process was exactly what I expected, and exactly how he described it. My husband and I felt very comfortable when taking the pictures. We just listened to exactly what he told us to do and let him work his magic with the photos! Richard was able to get us our photos back within 6 weeks of our wedding, which was very reasonable and exactly how long he said it would take. The pictures of my husband an... Read more

  • We didn't meet Richard until the day of our event and we immediately loved him. He's kind and warm and helped make the day perfect.

  • Richard is AMAZING!! I absolutely love all of my photos from my wedding. My husband and I flew to Napa for an elopement so I was a bit nervous since i'm from out of state. Richard was easy to communicate with the whole time and made me feel so comfortable. The day of of the wedding he was helpful and made sure all of our last min details were finished. He even finished editing our photos early for us so we would have them ready in time for our reception back home which was super nice. I would recommend Richard 100%!! He is great at what he does and you will not be disappointed int he quality of your pictures.

  • After having booked our venue, Richard was one of the first vendors we contacted and booked. He was extremely helpful and cooperative from start to finish. We were very excited for all the ideas Richard had, including locations for our engagement pictures. If there was ever an idea we had in mind, Richard seemed to know where and how to take the perfect shot to accommodate our ideas. During our wedding, he was extremely patient with not just us, but our families as weddings can be chaotic with many moving pieces. Communication with him was always extremely good. If we ever needed to contact him, he was always very quick to respond. Even now, almost a year after our wedding, we can still reach out to him with questions or requests. He has worked with many wedding vendors in the Napa area which makes coordinating much easier. We would highly recommend Richard, not just for wedding pictures, but for any occasion where you would want a high quality, low maintenance photographer. He did an ... Read more

  • Booking with Richard was the best decision we ever made. He is amazingly talented, extremely knowledgeable, helpful and organized. Great photos will be one less thing you will have to worry or stress over once you book with Richard Wood Photography. He guided us throughout the process on things we would have otherwise been clueless about as far as photos are concerned! He helped with final products like thank you cards with printed pictures, Save the Dates, and so many other items that would have otherwise slipped my mind. His work is amazing and he actually cares about his final product and keeping his clients happy. He is patient and will take 1000 different pictures of the same pose if that is what makes you happy. Finding a photographer that you feel comfortable around is a big deal, bigger than you may thing and Richard made both my Fiance and I feel like we had known him forever. Doing silly things (that most grooms would't want to do) like giggling, kissing, posing almost came n... Read more

  • Richard is the best. We decided not to have a videographer, because we really just wanted raw footage of the ceremony, speeches, and dances. That made getting a good photographer one of our top priorities. Richard was one of the photographers recommended by our venue and our planner. After looking through websites, we talked with him and one other recommended photographer. He exuded professionalism and laid out his usual methods for photographing a wedding. He also had a really inexpensive engagement shoot option and whenever he finishes with the photos, they are all yours to keep and use however you'd like. He put our engagement photos on dropbox only a couple weeks after the shoot and was ready with hundreds of photos from the wedding less than a month afterward. Richard is great to work with and fun to have at the event. Plus, the photos are beautiful. Richard really has an eye and captured our day wonderfully. I would definitely recommend.

  • Richard Wood was our photographer for our 7/11/13 Napa Valley wedding. Richard is professional, kind, responsive and detail oriented. We were able to meet with Richard before our wedding to discuss all of the details relating to our wedding day. Richard really listened to us and he had wonderful ideas. We received our CD of about 675 photos in the mail from Richard this Friday and they are truly breathtaking! He is an artist and captured every moment beautifully. When choosing our wedding vendors, I took particular care when looking at photographers because I wanted our photos to be the best and they are! Richard is a master at his craft and his work is beautiful beyond words.

  • Richard Wood is an absolute must for your wedding pictures! I can guarantee that you will be extremely pleased with the quality, variety and beautiful pictures he takes. Richard is a great presence to have with you through your entire wedding day. He is calm, very kind, reassuring and extremely professional. His creativity and talent comes through in the photos he takes and he is very helpful with anything you need...even if that means helping with a wedding dress mishap moments before your first look is scheduled. :) His wedding package options are fantastic. Unlike many photographers we looked into, Richard includes an engagement photo session and a wedding book. In addition, the photos are yours to keep once he sends them to you. Richard Wood is not printed across the pictures, forcing you to buy them through him...although even if it was, I would still highly recommend Richard Wood Photographic as the quality and pleasure of working with him would still be well worth it!

  • Richard was recommended to me by the owners of Hans Fahden Winery in Calistoga, CA, as being a fine photographer and "just a really great guy to have around." They couldn't have steered me in a better direction nor have been more truthful. He truly was a great guy to have at the wedding, and I enjoyed his company as much as I love his artwork. I can't express enough how efficient and dependable he was throughout the entire process. Months ahead of time, he invited me to meet with him to lay out a preliminary schedule for what he was going to photograph and at what specific times. I brought my parents along with me for the meeting, particularly because they offered to help with this expense and I felt that it was important for them to feel comfortable with him also. They expected some "artsy" guy who worked on impulsive inspiration and momentary whims, who would drive us crazy with "just one more photo - I've got a great idea! Do you think you can un-bustle your dress again?" My... Read more

  • I was married two weeks ago at Solage in Calistoga and used Richard as our photographer. He did an amazing job and was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. I live in NYC and did everything over the phone. Richard was always reachable and really listened to what was important to me. I did not want to see my husband before the wedding and he understood and was able to work around this and shoot photos of just the bridesmaids and groomsmen before the ceremony. It was also important to me that we take some shots in a vineyard (which is not on Solage's property) and after the ceremony he happily took my husband and me in his car to do these shots at a neighboring winery. Richard has a lovely demeanor, is energetic, professional and has a great eye. It is also clear that he's been shooting weddings in and around Napa Valley for many years and knows exactly what he is doing. So many of my guests also thought Richard was fabulous and came up to me after the wedding (and are still ask... Read more

  • Richard Wood took the wedding photos for my wedding in Yountville, CA at the Vintage Estate Pavillion on April 24, 2010. I can't say enough good things about him. I live in New York City, so it wasn't the easiest thing to plan my wedding from afar. Richard was so great to work with. He was available to answer any questions I had from the start and always responded to emails/ phone calls in a timely manner. He was so laid back and helpful throughout the entire process. He took time before the wedding to go over the timeline for the day, and gave me a clear idea of the types of photos he would take. He was flexible with timing and worked with our wedding budget. He even gave us recommendations for our rehearsal dinner and ceremony musicians when my fiance (now husband) and I were struggling to find those vendors-- we ended up using his recommendations and were extremely happy! On the day of the wedding, he was so efficient and kept everyone calm and relaxed. I have a HUGE famil... Read more

  • Richard was a champ! We love our beautiful photos and so enjoyed working with him. His calm demeanor helps set a bride at ease even if there is chaos all around her. Many of our friends have sent photos that are blurry - the lighting was tough that day - but all of Richard's proofs are clear and perfect. It will be tough to choose the best of the many proofs as he got so many terrific shots of us and our guests.

  • Richard was great! I chose him because I felt at ease and comfortable with him immediately, and that is very important given the amount of time you will spend with your photographer on your wedding day. Richard gets wonderful photos that capture the moment and human emotion and you don't even notice he's there! He's very quick and not obtrusive to your day at all...
