Hi, I'm River!
I offer image collections that focus on the beauty of love and the intimacy of human connection. Natural light, photojournalism, and artistic style all come together with the way I work. Oh, and we always have a lot of fun, too. Visit my website for more! http://riverwest.co
Location: I am based in Atlanta Georgia, however, I will travel to you anywhere in the US of A (and have worked abroad, too). I love photographing weddings... doesn't matter where!

River is amazing!
River photographed our spontaneous (Covid-era) micro-wedding with just one week's notice. She was kind, warm and made us feel at ease instantly. Her photos are truly phenomenal and I love how she captured candid, small moments in addition to the more formal shots. Highly recommend!!Sent on 06/19/2020

Everything we wanted and more!
River was an absolute joy to work with on our engagement photos and our wedding photos. As part of the package we selected, we did an engagement shoot with her in February and she was there to capture our special day on August 15th. Having an engagement shoot with her beforehand gave us a solid advantage on our wedding day because she took the time to understand all the things we were self-conscious about and to get a feel for what we were like as a couple!
I cannot say enough about how perfectly she captured our moments and went along with any ideas/wants we had throughout the day. We didn't want really posed photos and we wanted to capture the genuine love between us and our tribe that came to celebrate our marriage with us. River captured all of that and so much more! River is extremely talented, super creative and so genuine in her approach. She was able to find little unique perspectives and angles and lighting and places within the venue to take photos and everything came out so beautifully. River captured so much of our day from the beginning to the end and I am truly glad we are able to relive our day through her lens.
River's communication leading up to the day of the wedding and on the day of the wedding helped everything flow so smoothly. We met with her a few weeks before the wedding to cover everything—and she followed up with reminders the week of the wedding (because with everything going on, you forget!). The day of the wedding she was SUPER flexible, didn't make us feel rushed but still somehow made sure we stayed on schedule!
I cannot say enough good things about River. From her creativity to her professionalism to the way she so perfectly documented our forever love—I recommend her 1000 times over. Hire her. You won't be disappointed!Sent on 09/22/2020

River photographed our wedding in December 2016 and I could not have been more pleased with the final outcome. The day of your wedding goes by so quickly. You planned everything perfect for months and then the day finally comes and it’s over before you know it. That’s why I’m so happy I chose River to be the one to capture the most special day of my life. I go back constantly and look at our pictures. It reminds me of all the moments, from the small details to the big ones like the look on my husbands face or the beautiful decor and floral arrangements. My wedding was in December and I wanted to to feel like a classical Christmas winter wonderland. River did an amazing job of capturing that vision. We have used her for numerous photographs since then from my husbands business headshots for all employees, to recently our newborn pictures. She’s an amazing artist all around and I definitely recommend her to any bride. She’s the bomb and you won’t be disappointed!Sent on 12/14/2018
River is a super motivated gift to all. I mean motivated not driven as her name implies as a river flows she does also and her glow changes the scenery. River has an eye for the beautiful moment and with her camera in hand with amazing focus, voila, now that moment can be treasured and shared for years to come. I hope River will be back to Splendor Mountain to photograph more weddings soon. I will say call River you will be happy with her laugh and talent.
I absolutely love working with Katie! Her photography is outstanding and I'd recommend her to anyone!
