documentary wedding & lifestyle photography

I believe in capturing all of the moments. This includes artistic, creative portraits & those perfectly imperfect shots in-between that give you the chance to relive your memories with emotion. Within your gallery you can expect to receive beautiful editorial portraits, lots of candids and if you’re having a party, creative and fun shots of you and your loved ones getting down on the dance floor! My approach is relaxed, photojournalistic, and completely no-pressure leaving space for truthful moments to be documented in the most authentic way.

Documenting artistic, truthful images that feel like you are my priority.

Riley received her BFA in Photography at The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). During her time in college, she lived abroad in Hong Kong and France as well as traveled to India and Thailand furthering her desire to experience new cultures and meet creatives around the world. After school she moved to Brooklyn, NY in search of love stories to capture. Using her background in fine art and documentary photography she brings this knowledge into her current work. She loves to experiment and create one-of-a-kind images, whilst also documenting every little moment in-between.

Associate Photographer


Erin's passion for photography began in her high school's dark room and quickly evolved into a deep love of portraiture while studying photography at The Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduating, she moved to Brooklyn to further her career in imagery and continues to cherish the connections made through her lens every year. When she isn’t behind the camera, you can find her cozying up in her ceramic studio throwing on the potter’s wheel.
