A long story short, I picked up a camera in 2013 because I couldn’t afford a photographer for my magazine. How everything went down is quite a story, and now I just can’t put it down. I have a passion for it! I’ll always cherish and be forever grateful for my craft!

I’m an independent photographer based in the New York area. Fairly small, flexible, and will work with any small, medium or large company. I will continue to try to create outstanding images of all sorts that document the “Moments Of Your Life”.


Rickey Allen Photography exceeded my expectations. I was dissatisfied with my daughters graduation photos taken by a popular high school graduation photographer. They were unable to provide the kind of life long images that I wanted to portray. Rickey Allen Photography was able to accommodate me immediately and create exactly what I wanted. The service was highly professional and I was made to feel that my business was appreciated not to mention the photos are some of the best I’ve seen. I work with media often so I am not a stranger to editorial photography but these are some of the best I’ve seen. They look editorial natural and personal all at the same time. I am an extremely satisfied customer.

I would argue that Rickey is the best photographer out there! My family and I have worked with Rickey on many different occasions. And each time , Rickey went above and beyond our expectations. Rickey is extremely talented and has an eye for seeing things that will create absolutely stunning photos. And if you walk in with a vision of your own, he will make it come to life! We are so glad that we have such gorgeous photos to remember some of the most special times in our lives. There is truly no price tag for the pictures that we have from Rickey.He is incredibly professional, attentive, and creative. He understands how important a role he is playing and he takes it very seriously. It is also clear that he truly loves what he does. I would absolutely without hesitation recommend Rickey to any and everyone!
