Art allows me to be passionate. Art is where every imposed boundary can be transgressed. Art is a free world of color where all is possible.

I am grateful for my amazing experience with Sha. She is such a professional. I appreciate how she utilizes a conversation prior to the shoot to get to know the client and their needs for photos. The locations she picked out fit my vision and the pictures turned out flawless. I 100 % felt comfortable with her through the whole process. She truly captured my natural glow. Thank you!
I am pleased with the work of Rich Methods Photography. I decided to work with Sha to launch my business and she met my needs in terms of how I wanted to capture the product photography and head shots. I am a fan of her process. She is very transparent with meeting in advance to set expectations before the shoot, creating a mood board to set the overall intention of the shoot, and is open to hearing what a client does/does not want for their shoot.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sha to bring technical, dimensional, and textural photography to life. She was all ears, and I felt that we were on the same page before, during, and after the shoot. I can’t say enough on how it was a pleasure to work with her. She does a fantastic job of bringing out great spirits of her clients to capture emotions, and I felt her passion in how she cares about how people of color are represented in photography. I even felt that I learned a thing or two about photography with Sha! She loves to share her knowledge.

I would highly recommend Sha to anyone, and would definitely hire her again for a shoot. Sha has a promising future ahead of her!

Sha, I really appreciate your attention to detail and perfection. From the moment I inquired about a photoshoot with you, you were professional, readily available to address my questions and punctual. This was my first time having professional photos taken and you reassured me it would be fun (which it was) and more importantly we didn’t leave the shoot until you felt I was satisfied. That was helpful because by the end I was able to do the fun crazy poses I know I will laugh at from years to come. I do look forward to working with you again.
Sha is amazing! As someone who’s more comfortable behind the camera, my shoot was effortless, natural, and almost therapeutic. I had a great experience as the “subject”, but also learned a lot about my artistry. I absolutely LOVE the portraits that Sha created! She was able to capture genuine expressions and moments that I can now hold on to. Sha is so professional, so timely, and so talented. Thank you, again!
— JENAÉ H. (2019)
I thoroughly enjoyed our shoot and it was awesome to see you behind the camera! I really love they way all the photos came out and love your eye. I can’t wait to shoot with you more.
— SHANNON B. (2019)
Ms. RIch is an amazing photographer. She had wonderful ideas about how to capture our family. She is so easy to work with. We are extremely happy with our pictures. I highly recommend her.
— ROSALYN H. (2018)
I am beyond happy with both of my graduation photo sessions! Sha is so nice, funny, creative and professional! Great rates! Great personality! Great pictures! I received my final pictures within a matter of days! Sha even asked before posting them herself which means a lot to me. Overall AWESOME job! I will definitely be using RichMethods again!
— ALEXIS T. (2018)
Sha is a very gifted photographer. We have used her for many occasions. Our most recent was my daughter Alexis graduation pictures from college. Sha was very flexible with dates and locations which made the process so easy. During the photo shoot Sha was wonderful; she takes her time and is so patient with you. It was just a fabulous experience with her. In addition, her rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend her services!! We love you Sha!!!
— DEBBIE T. (2018)
Sha is always great to work with. We needed someone who could work well with kids and she nailed it. She put the kids (and parents) at ease and captured them in their natural joyus element. Nothing fake or over-posed. As a business owner, I appreciate that Sha is very organized and always stayed on point with target due dates. We will definitely work together again.
— ANTHONY B. (2018)
Sha was amazing to work with!!. She selected a great location with beautiful scenery. She worked well with both of my children and made our photoshoot an enjoyable experience. I received my photos FAST, which was a pleasant surprise . Please book her if you are considering professional photography ❤️
— EFIA G. (2018)
Sha gave us a wonderful family photo session! She was willing to go with the flow and experiment on poses and activities, which was very helpful for our three year-old. She has a great eye for the unexpected. The pictures came out beautifully and we’re excited to display them throughout our house! Thanks, Sha!
— RAINA F. (2018)
Sha was great from start to finish. She not only did an awesome job with creating my website, she took great photos to go along with it. I told her my vision and what I wanted and she was able to put it together. I am not always the most comfortable behind the camera but Sha does a great job with capturing making you feel comfortable and capturing natural and authentic shots. Professional from start to finish. I’d def work with her again!
— MARIAH W. (2018)
Me and my wife LOVED working with Shà!! She’s so easy going, positive, and flexible!! She’s very professional and lets you and your significant other be completely comfortable, natural, and at ease!! Shà got an amazing and very keen artistic eye, she just knows what a good shot will be and pays close attention to detail!! I can’t recommend her enough!
— AHMAD E. (2018)
Sha! Thank you so much for creating the photos that I envisioned! You did an amaazzinngg job picking out locations, making sure I was comfortable while shooting, and of course editing to perfection. I’m so happy I got to work with you. Your professionalism and timeliness everything was so smooth and completely no hassle. Can’t thank you enough! I would surely recommend you to anyone. Can’t wait to work together again someday!
— SASHA S. (2018)
I had so much fun getting my Winter Soiree pictures taken by D. Rich with Richmethods Photography. She is professional, creative, talented, very reasonable, and so easy to work with. They all turned out beautifully! Each picture perfectly captured the emotion of the day! You will absolutely love your experience with D. Rich! I can’t wait to use Richmethods Photography again! BEST around!
— DARYL L. (2018)
I can not say enough amazing things about Sha! She is absolutely brilliant at her craft. She was my photographer for my wellness photo shoot, which featured myself and my 3 young children. She was so patient and worked so well with my kids...they really loved her and still talk about their experience working with her to this day. She made us all feel comfortable and shooting with her was a breeze. To top it off, our photos came out beautifully! They were high quality and we constantly receive compliments on our photos. Thank you Sha for the wonderful experience. I will definitely work with you in the future on upcoming projects.
— INDIA O. (2018)
Deaudrea did a fantastic job with my photo shoot! The customer service she provides is awesome. From the moment I contacted her to express my interest in her services, to scheduling the appointment with her, to the day I met her at the location for the shoot, she was very responsive with communication, detailed, and professional. She put me at ease during the shoot and took some amazing pictures with beautiful backgrounds that captured my vision of what I was hoping the final product would look like. I would definitely call upon her again should I need her services.
— FONDA N. (2018)
Ms. Rich took amazing pictures again for Nursing CAP, Inc.’s 2nd Annual Gala With A Purpose: A Red, Black & White Affair! The pictures have created memories for me, my family, friends, supporters and the organization that will last a lifetime. We will be using Sha’s services again next year. I would absolutely recommend her services!
— REGINA M. (2018)
Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous... she was so patient and attentive. She did all the poses we asked for and went above and beyond to my sure my daughters senior pictures were all that we wanted and more.
Thanks Sha ❤️
Sha is one of the most dedicated and professional artists/photographers that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She’s so incredibly enjoyable to work with and is super knowledgeable about all aspects of her craft that I keep coming back to use her services. She’s illustrated an amazing portrait of my parents, and the number of photoshoots I’ve had with her are endless. Mind you - I am incredibly awkward in front of the camera, but she manages to not only make me feel at ease, but can always get a slew of great photos out of me. Most recently, I sought her out for professional headshots and I couldn’t be happier. I will continue to seek out her services for as long as she is in this field, and recommend her to everyone I know. You’ll never regret employing her work.
— DANIELLE G. (2017)
This is the second time Sha has taken photos for me and its gets better every time. We took our engagement pictures for our wedding website and although it was sooo hot and my hair got messed up, Sha edited the pictures to perfection!! She made us laugh the entire time and even played music so we can move naturally throughout the shoot. I always recommend her to my friends because her delivery is impeccable. Thank you again for everything!
— HEREN S. (2017)
I had the pleasure of being referred to DeAudrea Rich by my cousin and my experience was amazing. I came to her with a sketch that I drew up and I was astonished at how she brought my vision to life. DeAudrea’s talent is like no other and I am excited that I had the opportunity to work with her. She is talented, efficient and professional; which is everything you can ask from a business. I highly recommend her for all your graphic design needs. I certainly plan on working with her in the future. Thanks a bunch DeAudrea!
— MONICA D. (2017)
Sha is such a talented photographer! I am so blessed that she was the one who captured pictures for my upcoming graduation. I have no words to describe how much I love my pictures! She pays very close attention to details and she thought of every pose I could have imagined. Sha is beyond sweet and very professional. She is great to work with and she made me feel so confident and comfortable in front of the camera. You can truly tell that she is passionate about photography and that comes through in the quality of her work.
— ANIKA H. (2017)
Sha was very helpful and professional from the beginning. She was speedy with her turnarounds and was uber patient with my partner and myself. I would 100% recommend her to a close friend in need of her services.
— SHANTICE E. (2017)
I can honestly say Sha Rich is an amazing photographer!! She goes above and beyond what’s expected in what I call catching life’s special moments on camera! I wouldn’t have anyone else capture a special moment such as my oldest children graduation and prom pictures. Moments like those are something only a very experienced photographer that’s puts her heart and soul in her work can do for my family!
— JODI H. (2016)
Sha was incredible to work with. My husband is not the biggest fan of having his picture taken, but Sha made it comfortable for the both of us by playing music and having poses and spaces picked out. We will definitely work with her again!
— CHELEAH G. (2016)
I’ve been fortunate enough to use Sha’s services twice. One was a newborn session and the other my wedding. Both times Sha left her home city and drove an hour ( and MORE for my wedding ) and didn’t complain about it once. Both times I received my photos in a timely manner, way before I expected her to be done editing them. At my wedding I had a couple specific poses that I wanted to do and I explained them to Sha and she nailed them. I cannot recommend her enough!! Money well spent!
— TAIYANA F. (2016)
The quality of work you receive is amazing! I was very excited to do this special Trash the Dress shoot with my family!! She’s very professional, talented and a pleasure to work with.
— BRITTNY N. (2016)
Where do I start... My lovely fiancé contacted our photographer for a surprise re-proposal shoot (he proposed a week before but we had no pictures). I had no idea!! She was able to capture the best pictures and we are actually going to use one of them for our invitations. Her delivery was so fast! It took them that night, edited, and emailed before the next day!!! I seriously cannot get over the pictures!!! Thank you!!!
— HEREN S. (2016)
My family has had the pleasure of having Sha provide her photography services for our niece’s newborn photo shoot and our wedding day shoot as well. Sha was patient with us each time providing different options as far as best lighting (our wedding was at night) and being attentive to everyone to ensure we received the best pictures for these wonderful milestones. It goes without saying that she is truly one of the best at what she does. It’s clear that she is driven by her passion and it shows in the quality of the photos taken. If you are looking for someone that will treat you like family, but also keep it professional I suggest Sha. You will not be disappointed!!
— GABRIELLE F. (2016)
You’re absolutely a great photographer , I loved how my pictures came out for my sweet sixteen.
— JAMIA H. (2016)
Sha took a candid photo of my daughter and her best friend at a birthday party and words can not describe how amazing that picture turned out! It’s phenomenal how her pictures have so much life and love in them. I can honestly say she captured a memory for a lifetime in that one photo. Book her!
— KRISTIN G. (2016)
We had the pleasure of working with Sha for our engagement photos. She exceeded our expectations! She was very flexible and easy to work with. Not only did she beautifully capture the love we share through photos but we also had a lot of fun doing it! The level of professionalism and responsiveness of Sha made the entire process so enjoyable and easy to recommend her to anyone in need of photography! We are so thankful that Sha was able to be apart of our special journey!
I had the pleasure of working with Deaudrea for my college graduation pictures. She was very creative and professional during the entire experience. She sent me examples of poses we could try and even took me out of my element by shooting at Belle Isle in Richmond. After the shoot she sent me lots of images to choose from. (It was hard because all of them were great!) On top of that she is affordable! I look forward to working with her again in the future.
— ASHLEY J. (2016)
It’s a lot of artists out here with talent but it’s not a lot of artists who can mix love and talent together and make it come to life right before your eyes. That’s what Deaudrea Rich does with all her work.
— ARTHUR G. (2016)
I have zero words to relay how amazing Sha is so I will let “the spirit” lead me. I will start by saying this, when I was coming up with a theme for my wedding, I had one person in mind, Deaudrea! I have been a fan and client for a little while now and I trust her art and her ability to make your vision come alive. My favorite part about working with Deaudrea is that she takes everything personal. She wants to understand you and the story you’re trying to tell and this was exactly what she did for my wedding! Deaudrea not only created the logo and branding for my wedding, she literally commanded the experience through her art. Her use of boldness and sophistication with this design created the “mood” for the night and essentially the theme for the most important day of my life. The branding that she provided became a hashtag that was used thousands of times on Instagram and also the center of many conversations on the most popular internet blogs in the world! Thank you for making my wedding the talk of all nations!
— LORENZO V. (2016)
Working with DeAudrea was truly an amazing experience! My fiancé and I hired DeAudrea for our engagement photos shoot and we could not be more happy with choosing her to be our photographer. She was very professional throughout our entire time working together from the time we made initial contact, during our shoot and after receiving our final photographs (which she sent to us in record time). She made us feel very relaxed and comfortable whilst working with her and she had a lot of great ideas for poses during the photo shoot and she was open to suggestions that we had. I would definitely recommend DeAudrea to anyone in need of a very talented photographer and I would hire her again for another photo shoot without second thought!
— JADE-EVETTE S. (2016)
I am so thankful to have worked with such a patient and detail oriented person to create a one of a kind logo for my company.
— SAMETA B. (2016)
Sha truly has been gifted with the creative eye which makes her a phenomenal photographer. Our company had the pleasure of working with her to promote our fall collection and we were blown away by her work. Our models had little to no experience behind a camera and Sha was able to guide them to make them comfortable and confident in their posing. From her remarkable candid shots to her spontaneous ideas, she continued to leave us in awe. She’s personable, professional, and flexible. We would absolutely jump at the chance to work with her again. Thank you so much!
— TARYN S. (2016)
Sha has photographed my family on four different occasions. Each time has been absolutely wonderful. Now that the girls were older I knew our shoot this year was going to be rough and I was very nervous about it. Sure enough my girls were not into it at all but Sha was so patient and professional with us. There was many times she even helped getting the girls calmed back down. The pictures turned out great! She also came to our house and got some great pictures of us with our dogs as well. Sha is amazing at what she does and you can tell it is her passion. I plan on using her for my photos for as long as she allows.
— AMY A. (2016)
Where do I even begin? I reached out to Sha to design a logo for something I am working on. We met to talk about what I was looking for and then she sent me a very thorough first set of designs. It is so evident that she puts a lot of time and thought in her work, and she is really open to feedback in order to ensure that the costumer is happy. I would not hesitate to use Sha’s services in the future. A very talented artist! Thank so much for your great work, Sha!
— MARIAH W. (2016)
DeAudrea is an amazing artist! She has done several photo shoots for me as I work to expand my personal blog. She inspires me creatively and is just an awesome person to collaborate with! She is very professional with affordable rates. Book her!
