Oh Rudy, you did an amazing job...these photos are so beautiful. You captured the evening exactly how I remember it and how I want it to be frozen in time. Thank you so much. You are a true artist!
My husband and I greatly appreciate everything Rudy has done. Even after taking absolutely gorgeous wedding photos, he remained by our side to help us perfect a canvas arrangement. I’m very happy to have stumbled across such a talented, professional, and patient photographer! He truly cares about his clients
My husband and I decided that one area of wedding budgeting and planning that we would not lower cost on was hiring a talented photographer. We are eternally grateful that Rudy Conrad agreed to be our engagement and wedding photographer capturing the happiest most “fairy-tale-like moments” of our lives in print. Looking through pictures that Rudy had taken of us, we fell in love with each and every photo. He allowed us to be ourselves and captured the love that we have for each other with each shot. He did not ask us to do things or pose in ways that were not 100% a true reflection of our relationship. Rudy actively listened to my vision and tried to understand my feedback in order to take the most meaningful photo. It seemed as though Rudy planned out each picture before taking it; he did not need to “photoshop” any of our pictures. This became even more evident when I received all of our wedding pictures in less than 24 hours. (However, he was willing to “photoshop” awkward cars out of the background of pictures or my perceived imperfections upon request.) When my friends enter my home, I am always afraid that they all think that I am a vain individual because of the amount of pictures that I have displayed of my husband and I. Truth be told my husband and I are “Average Joe’s” who have always liked the way we looked in one out of every 25 pictures taken of us. This is not the case in his photos. Outside of being an absolute pleasure to work with, respectful, providing clear direction, and taking breath-taking pictures, his photography has helped me in an even more significant way. Rudy saw the beauty in my husband and I taking a step back and appreciating the connection that we had all the while assisting us in appreciating that life is full of moments large and small that are worth capturing in time. Thank you, Rudy, for sharing initial interest and refined talents with my family.
When I was planning my wedding, I spent months looking for the right photographer. I finally came across some amazing pictures on a friend’s Facebook page, and asked him who his photographer was. Rudy was amazing right from the start. My husband and I tend to be indecisive, and Rudy was able to make a lot of suggestions to give us a starting point. He made the whole process FUN, particularly at the engagement photo shoot. He was able to think through some excellent potential shots for our wedding day. The day of the wedding, Rudy was a hit. He alternated spending time with the groom and bridal parties, and got all of the “getting ready” shots. We ended up with so many wonderful pictures, I can’t decide what to print! My guests and friends have all commented on how wonderful the photos are. Also, I have had friends who waited 2-3 months to get their pictures- not with Rudy! We had our pictures before we got back from our Honeymoon. All around, great experience working with Rudy, cannot recommend him enough!
Rudy has an uncanny way of capturing your family exactly the way they are. Real personalities rarely come out in photos, but Rudy has been able to capture the essence of each of my family members perfectly. He doesn’t just stage your family, he watches and waits for the perfect, REAL moment. I have loved every photo he has taken. He’s now my all time family photographer (I’ve even scheduled EXTENDED family photos with him.) If you want an excellent photographer, look no further.
Rudy Photographed our Skate Dance Dream event at the Kettering Ice Arena. He was able to capture the show action shots as well as the “behind the scenes” interaction between the kids and the performing stars from So You Think You Can Dance and our internationally ranked professional skaters. Definitely look forward to working with him again!
Rudy is absolutely amazing! He took gorgeous pictures of our family that we will cherish for a lifetime! He was responsive and professional leading up to the shoot - and had a warm, friendly, and patient attitude during our session. He even got our 2 year old to smile and play in front of the camera. I highly recommend Rudy and will hire him again in the future!!
Rudy was awesome! anyone giving him less than a five star has never worked with him. He gave our family of 14 such a great experience and the time he took with getting the right shots with the young and special needs children was unexpected and amazing. He is extremely creative. We will never use another photographer as long as he is available
Rudy has taken pictures of some of our most important family moments (my daughter’s engagement, wedding and then pictures of her family with their 9 month old and my son’s senior photos) and we have always loved the results. We recently had him do our extended family photo (16 people) and the results were another resounding success. Rudy is patient, precise, and great with all ages and his eye for color, light, and proportion is without a doubt “on point”. Thank you for the experience, Rudy. I am sure that we will be calling on you again.
My husband and I were very pleased with Rudy and his photography skills. He is very talented and had great suggestions. He hustled and got many great shots in a short period of time and not in the best weather conditions. He still managed to capture beautiful photos. Rudy seemed very passionate about his photography and was very easy to work with. Our wedding photos were ready much sooner than we had expected. We would recommend him to anyone needing a photographer!
Rudy was amazing! He made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable since the beginning, creating a very relaxed atmosphere. He had lots of ideas for beautiful pictures and he visited the places we chose before hand to find inspiration and obtain the best pictures. The photo session was very dynamic and the pictures turned out amazing, we can not be more happy with our engagement pictures!
Rudy did an AMAZING job for us!! The day we had scheduled for our engagement photos, Rudy wasn’t feeling too hot and come to find out he had walking pneumonia, but that didn’t stop him. Despite not feeling well and running into wedding after wedding at our desired locations, Rudy found two trees out of an entire park that had the perfect light and gave us perfect photos.It’s nice to have a photographer who is so passionate about his job and work. Rudy checked out parks prior to our session and continued to shoot until he got exactly what both he and my fiancé and I wanted! We couldn’t be more happy that we picked him and everyone who works with him in the future will be beyond satisfied!
Rudy made my fiancé and I feel instantly at ease during our engagement photo shoot. He traveled to meet us in our college town of Oxford, Ohio. He was knowledgable about posing us in what felt like unnatural positions, but turned out great in photos. He would show us photos on his camera as we went to make sure he was capturing the images we had in mind. He never limited our number of locations around campus or wardrobe changes. My favorite photos were when Rudy got into a tree to capture some images of us down below. Totally above and beyond! He even went a little overtime without any hesitation. After the shoot, our gallery was available for viewing in a short amount of time. Even though it been months since we took the photos, we still email Rudy with questions and he’s very prompt and informative in his replies. Overall, I think the photos turned out fantastic, Rudy was a pleasure to work with, and I’d highly recommend him and his services. We were so impressed, we even asked about his availability for our wedding date on the spot during our engagement shoot.
