about us and our style
we are pam and ritchie and we are ritrato photography. we decided to call our business ritrato photography because in our own language, ritrato means, portrait, picture or frames. we wanted to carry a bit of our heritage in wherever we might end up in and share it with whoever we might meet. leaving our country, philippines, to live in singapore and USA makes us appreciate even more the differences of our cultures and the uniqueness of each individual that we meet. it is not any surprise to us then that our style of photography is immensely influenced with the vibrancy and heartbeat of each culture.
with fresh eyes, we love and enjoy doing shoots in totally ordinary places and turning them into fine works of art. we revel in taking pictures of people in their element, in their basic moments. And nothing beats our joy in framing special moments that could never again be recaptured.
FUN. CANDID. PASSION. that’s how we love it. we want to take pictures of people \in events as they unfold.
SUNNY. RAINY. SNOWY. we love the challenges that each unique situation present to us, making the shots not anywhere near mundane but phenomenal.
FRIENDS. FAMILY. GOD. we, ritchie and pam, are born to be friends and we would not have started if not for the overwhelming support and love of our other friends and family. and WITHOUT OUR GOD, WE KNOW WE'D BE NOWHERE. praise and glory to him!
