meet rich

Ricardo (Rich) Aguilar is a Northern California native that resides in Valparaiso, IN.

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 to darn 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. How cool is that? 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.

Along this journey, I discovered the essential things in my life. First, my faith in Jesus Christ. Over the past fifteen plus years, I’ve pastored and ministered in many areas, If photography is my passion then helping people is my heart. Secondly, my dear wife and children. My family is what brings me the most joy in my life.  Without these things, I wouldn’t be the man I am today.

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


At this current time, I am not offering workshops, but that doesn't mean that I won't start scheduling some this Summer as demand increases. If you're a budding photographer and want to take your photography to the next level leave me a message and I'd love to connect with you.
