Hello! I’m Rich,

I’m a husband, a father to 3 amazing kids and I love photography. You won’t find me taking myself seriously because life is just too short. I love laughing, being around happy people, gorgeous sunsets, the beach and great restaurants. Seriously, point me to the nearest taco! I love what I do! I don’t work a day in my life because I’m privileged to capture memories for a living. If I could some up who I am, I’m your closest friend that you invited to your wedding who just so happens to be a professional wedding photographer.

My heart is full because I’m doing what I love with the people that I love. 



I currently serve the greater midwest and love all weddings! Whether it’s big or small, being able to capture your laughs, joyful tears, first looks and many more moments is what I live for. I never thought that I’d have the privilege of being able to share so many precious moments. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else in this world. The biggest honor I could ever get is you allowing me to capture, you.

Photographs & memories are the only things you have left after your wedding. Rich was definitely the best in understanding that. He helped me with the layout of the actual wedding and the day of in order to make sure all the important moments would be captured within our purchased time frame. We had multiple calls to define what we wanted and when. He really paid us a lot of attention before and on the big day. Not to mention, Rich is an AMAZING photographer! I was blown away by what he was able to capture. During the day of he was calm and collected during my moments of stress, and he was extremely professional with handling the wedding party. Rich & his team are really hard workers. They were capturing the entire 8 hours and turned around the photographs really quick. Aguilar photography exceeded my expectations & was the best choice I made for this wedding, besides the groom. :)

Rich is just SO amazing. The talent that he has is just indescribable. He has the eye for great photo opps in places you would never think and during my wedding, those were some of the pictures that were most incredible. Rich and his team are all so easy to work with; you’ll never feel awkward or out of place with this photographer and that was SO important to me. There were so many breath taking photos and there was never one moment I felt bad when Rich was in the room. He truly made me feel like a princess. The team made sure all the important parts were captured and even some I didn’t think of but am so thankful I have. My husband is super awkward taking pictures and he hates it and can I just say, OH MY WORD! The pictures of my husband were AMAZING! I only have amazing things to say about Rich. I truly couldn’t have asked for or thought of a better photographer. Give Rich your time and he’ll give you everything you ever wanted in the form of photos to last a lifetime!

Rich has an amazing eye for seeing your best angles with the right lighting too. He makes you not only feel comfortable, but confident as well. His ideas for themes and posses are unlimited if you (like me) have no idea what it is you are looking for. He captures who you truly look like and finds the beauty that you didn’t know you had in yourself. He’s 5 stars all the way and I cannot wait to have him do my wedding!!
