Vieques Photographer

River Karmen

When I was 11 years old my dog won first place for "most well behaved" in a children's dog show.

I was presented with a brownie camera as a prize. When I turned 14 my dad helped me build my first darkroom. From that time on, photography has been a driving force in my life.

I have been living on and photographing the island of Vieques since 1991.

Education :

  • 1981-1982 New England School of Photography Boston, Massachusetts
  • graduated with distinction
  • 1971-1975 Wells College Aurora, New York
  • BA in Biology with a minor in photography

Please contact River at or call me at 787-556-9030

I am always happy to custom fit a package that works best for the client

Great photographer for our amazing day

River photographed our beach wedding and did a great job. It was easy to work with her. She provided suggestions for our location and best time for the light. River processed and delivered our photos quickly. The photos were amazing. She was unobtrusive yet she captured the important moments of our wedding, as well as some sweet candid shots.

River was awesome. Very responsive, flexible, in coordinating with me and even suggested great ideas that were perfect! Very reliable in that she was doing a paparazzi-style shoot of my proposal and was there right on time when she said she'd be, and got the PERFECT shot of me down on one knee, in the moment. No re-enactment required! My fiancee and I received over 100 awesome images from our shoot. River did an awesome job to get these in the mail to us very quickly. She's a great person to work with. Great personality and very friendly. Highly recommend River!
