A Little About Us
* Elegant * Edgy * Eclectic *
Hi! Hello - we hope you're doing well! We are Hip Shots Photography, Eric and DC Richter, a husband and wife team of photographers and image finishing aficionados in Southern California.
We met in 1998 and it's been great for us ever since. Collectively we have 5 kids, all of whom have launched out of the house. We love to travel, dine well, photograph interesting things and people, and finish the images in Photoshop. We love the play of light, texture and color that gives life to our vision of the world.
DC is an eternal romantic with a lot of creative inspiration and happiness in her soul, while I am more of the mad scientist type that drives the technology and logistics. Between us, we have an amazing balance of ying & yang, art & science, laughter and intensity, relaxation and diligent work. We'd love to put our talents to work for you!
We ask ourselves what we would want from the photographer we hired for our wedding. We would want that person to be knowledgeable about the techniques to use to get awesome shots, do their homework and planning, be reliable and show up prepared, capture the special moments perfectly, be really creative with the posed shots, finish the images in a reasonable time, deliver them for a reasonable price, be responsive about our concerns and communicate about progress through all of it. We have high standards in what we would want of our photographer and we promise to deliver services and finished images within these very same standards.
Cheers, Eric & DC
