Here at R. Hacker Photography we strive to capture the moments that turn into your memories. 

To us photography is about capturing moments in time that would otherwise be missed. We seek out the personal moments of each celebration that we are invited to document that convey feelings like love, excitement, and delight in such a way that those viewing the images days, weeks, or years down the road can relive those memories with joy.

I was inspired to pursue a career in photography following the gift of a 1952 Nikon F, 35mm camera and 
encouragement from my mentor. As part of that 
pursuit, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I studied art education and photography with aspirations to teach others about art and photo. In the meantime I used the 1952
Nikon F for my own work and my first photography jobs while adding and upgrading my equipment and 
exploring different photography techniques and styles. 

That Nikon F taught me many things, but the most important is this: be patient, be kind, and follow your heart.
