I grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains, hanging out with redwood trees and river rocks. Thanks to a point-and-shoot camera and Costco film and processing, I could use entire rolls of film on whatever I wanted...like the mountains, my friends and there was that one time I shot a whole roll of just my feet!
In 2004 I received a B.A. in art with an emphasis in photography. I spent many years having art shows of my photos and paintings as well as performing in theatre and exploring the world. To support my artist's income ;), I began shooting weddings for another photographer. This showed me that weddings are suited for me in so many ways! They're super creative, high energy and focused on love. After 8 years at it on my own, I'm still inspired by my job. I now have a baby boy (Rocco River) who I'm either staring at in person or in photos. He motivates me even more to bring my best to my work. Life is good

I have admired Adriane's work for a long time. I was so happy to have her do our maternity session last fall. I had no idea how amazing these shots would come out. Adriane is a true artist and a professional. She helped us feel comfortable and you can see that in our portraits. These maternity moments are tender and fleeting, she truly captured the love we felt in anticipation of our daughter. I am so grateful to have these memories in the beautiful portraits Adriane captured for us. I highly recommend this amazing woman and photographer. I am planning a wedding in the next few years and hope to have her there too!!!Sent on 08/13/2018

Hire her now!
We could not be happier that we chose Adriane to capture our wedding day. She was so incredible to work with, and she got so many awesome shots on the day. We also had her take engagement photos which were also amazing! Our house is now a living shrine to us because I love our pictures so much!Sent on 12/19/2018
She was so patient with me and really took the time to work through the day with me. She was a huge part in planning the timeline of the day, and really worked with us to make sure we were getting what we wanted.
She was such a calming part of our day, and was able to capture so much of the day, without even being noticed by guests! They all said how they barely noticed she was there. She was able to capture so much of the emotion of the day, and our photos are so full of life!
I know there are a lot of decisions to be made when it comes to planning your wedding, so let this be an easy one - hire her!!

Adriane is a MUST
We cannot speak highly enough of Adriane. As with all weddings, there are so many decisions to be made, and the decisions we made at every point turned out great. That said, without a doubt, the very best decision we made was to have Adrian shoot our wedding. As with any wedding photographer we had limited time to ‘get to know’ Adriane. However, the way she handled everything leading up to, and at our wedding it was more like we had a friend who was taking photos of our day. Her low key, yet exceptionally professional, presence put us at ease and made for an incredibly enjoyable day and AMAZING photos.Sent on 10/22/2018
Adriane was awesome in our engagement shoot and we truly felt like she wanted get to know us and our relationship. Because of this the way she shot our day was special and captured everything in a way that truly reflected us.
We had a bit of a unique wedding venue that entailed a steam train through the redwoods, an outdoor standing ceremony in a confined space and then an indoor/outdoor reception. In the end, Adriane was incredible to work with in every aspect. She was so organized and offered so much helpful guidance leading up to our wedding. She got every photo we could have asked for and so much more.
We know this because we have already been sent all of our edited photos back just 7 weeks after our big day. They are magnificent and we could not be happier with them. Adriane and her shooting partner did an amazing job of capturing the entire essence of our day. From our low key time getting ready, to the challenging outdoor ceremony in the redwoods, to every family photo, to action shots from the reception that we had no idea even happened; all the photos are amazing. And equally as important the way Adriane approached the day instantly put us at ease.
If you are getting married in the Bay Area, and Adriane is available to shoot your wedding, you are making a huge mistake not to use her. Thank you Adriane!
