Rick King Photography

It is truly a blessing to be in a profession that I love and to meet and photograph so many wonderful people. To capture an event and do it correctly is an accomplishment that is very satisfying to me
Looking at a photograph takes you back to that time as if you were there, so I really believe when an event is over, all you have to keep your memories lasting for a lifetime are the photos.

Four Unplugged

Four Unplugged, contrary to how the name may sound, is a six-piece band that specialized in parties and wedding receptions. This Northshore favorite has been playing for almost 20 years and boasts an ever expanding song list that is varied, continually updated, and appeals to a wide range of ages and tastes.
They are honored to have been named Sophisticated Woman Magazine’s best cover band for five years in a row. Four Unplugged has a reputation as the ultimate wedding and party band because they provide just the right blend of music at just the right time. Since these professionals do so many receptions and parties of all kinds, from the elegant to the casual, they know how to gear each set to the individual occasion. With such a varied song list, they are able to select the appropriate music and volume level as the event progresses. So during the course of your event, everyone from Grandma to the kids – and especially the bride
and groom – will hear some of their favorite music and have a great time. They assist in everything from requests for first dances and special songs to making announcements and coordinating with the photographer to make sure the timing of your event is exactly to your specifications.
“It is our job to make your event a special, one-of-a-kind experience, and we take that job very seriously.”
