Seasoned with weddings
Capturing memories
Pristine quality


I find photography as an art medium, a language, and a way to contain traces of the human experience. My philosophy is to observe, and flow alongside you. Reading energy, following movement (and have a damn good time).
Major influences : photo-journalism / fashion / cinema / generational photographs + archives.
Intuition - Using my awareness / listening and trusting as I move through the
flow of the day. No force needed.
Honesty - reading your energy and observing who you are as humans and
documenting what feels true to you, your love.
All-encompassing - photographs of your florals, grandmother, venue details,
everything. The essence of the day.
Artful - honoring myself. First an artist, then a photographer. Create margin
for experimentation, movement in this medium.
Feeling - love flows from all over. how you feel during the day matters more
than the images themselves. I choose to honor you above myself. I will serve
you, encourage you, celebrate you.

Best Decision We Made for our Wedding!

We knew about Riley through a friend who hired her to be the photographer for their wedding. When we saw their pictures, we were AMAZED by the quality of the pictures and fell in love with her style and editing of the pictures. We met with her to discuss hiring her for our wedding and were so impressed! She was both professional and welcoming and we were excited to entrust her with our wedding.

At our wedding, she did such a sweet job of capturing our moments and also taking portraits. We are not a fan of super staged or cheesy wedding photos, and I can assuredly say that not one of our photos looked tacky or dull. We are so so pleased with every photo! It has been hard to choose which photos to print and put up around our house because they are all our favorite. It is seriously the best problem to have!! Every photo we got back was BEAUTIFUL and high quality. She even got several pictures back to us the same night as our wedding. We love that she gives us a link to all of our pictures on a website, password protected, so that we can access all of our pictures whenever we would like, could easily share them with family, and could select any photos to make prints of through whatever company we would like. At our wedding she also did an impressive job at getting the perfectly angled shots without getting in the way or comfort of our guests!

Overall, we are SO glad that we booked Riley, it was a huge blessing and we are so pleased at the result of our photos. She made the photo taking seem natural and fun and we so appreciated her creativity. You will not regret booking Riley!! It is so worth it to be assured that your wedding photos will be beautiful and electronically protected forever!! Thank you Riley!!!!

Overjoyed to have Riley as our wedding photographer

It was such a joy to have riley take our photos on our wedding day. Her talent, creativity, and eye for the little details captured such special moments of our family and us. She truly has a passion for photography and it shows through her performance and photographs. We are over the moon about the pictures!

AMAAAZING. FUN. I felt cared for.

TWO WORDS. Book her. Riley is a kind, peaceful, and gentle presence on wedding day AND she has an unrivaled eye for creating beauty and art. She鈥檚 going to deliver a gallery full of photos with all of your favorite people doing their thing + hidden gems where she experimented with shadows and light and made something epic. You will treasure them all. She鈥檚 a true artist with a camera on your wedding day and she鈥檒l make you feel at ease all day. She鈥檒l set you up to enjoy the moments, rather than just pose for photo opps. We had a blast. If you want a photographer to feel like a friend, you found one.
