sophisticated documentary-style wedding photography for atlanta (and nationwide) couples

Hi, I'm River! I am a contemporary wedding and portrait artist. Working in Atlanta and traveling nationally, I create extraordinary images for extraordinary people. My photojournalism approach creates a dynamic and romantic collection of classically inspired images for the modern couple who loves emotionally raw, genuine, personal photos that are rich in storytelling, personality, and artistic finesse. Please take a look around at my body of work and if it speaks to you, let's connect!

what's important to me and my clients

EMOTION + CONNECTION

There is nothing more beautiful than love and emotional openness - the bravery it takes to be ourselves and show our truest feelings. I work with couples who value authenticity in both themselves and the world. This leads to adventurous, meaningful, genuine images.

AUTHENTIC STORYTELLING

If you're looking for pose after pose of a smiling couple looking straight into camera, you're on the wrong website. I follow the day from a candid perspective and avoid the cliche stuff. By emphasizing the real emotions and allowing my clients to interact naturally, I create images with soul, depth, and life.

ART-INSPIRED PERSPECTIVE

Let's make art together - I love to create something unique, or non-traditional, or offbeat for my couples. Life is way too short for all photos to look the same. I'm intrigued by a bit of mystery and darkness and strangeness, and you're definitely going to see that as a recurring theme in my work.
