About

Every wedding photograph we take is a piece of your history, compiled to evoke memories.

Hi, I'm River and welcome to my work. I have always loved the ability to make images. This started in school through art and drawing and has always been a part of my work. After leaving school and further study I returned to school as a teacher. Though on my first day I went to meet the art teacher and at that point, I knew I needed to be an art teacher. After teaching other subjects in creative ways I finally became a teacher of digital and fine art.

The first time I picked up a camera was at college and I loved the excitement of taking a photo and then going into the darkroom and developing an image. These days that process is different and almost instant. Yet, being able to control the light, direct the scene adds so more to the final image. Over time I learned to hone my craft as a studio photographer and now have my studio as well as being able to wedding photography and video.

I am here to tell visual stories; your wedding day story, using your narrative in a professional way. I will naturally blend into your day to seize the moments as they arise and build a library of memories for you to cherish, forever.
