Rich Burkhart

wedding photographer • Savannah, Ga

More than half of my life has been dedicated to studying the art of photography. I have a Masters of Fine Arts in photography from Saavannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and in the years since my graduation, I have grown in my abilities to tell life stories. My style of shooting is artistic/photojournalistic, meaning that I find moments as they happen, and also give direction in posing.

Jennifer Cortiella

wedding photographer • Florida

Even though I found photography at such a young age, it took me years to come back to it as a career. I was a paralegal. A private investigator. A bail bondsman. A fashion designer. But none of them brought me half the joy that photography does.  I wanted to show my daughter that what she loves even now at her young age is important. She is why I’m finally doing what I love.
