RIVER G. WEST

What's up party people! I'm River, a photographer and storyteller always hunting for moments and documenting things that otherwise might fade from memory. I'm obsessed with moody black and whites, with wind that whips hair and skirts into a beautiful mad frenzy, with sunlight glimmering on the water at the end of the day, with self-discovery and personal empowerment. Photography helps me see. I am forever grateful for the places it's taken me and the lives it's let me into.

I currently live in Atlanta Georgia with my husband and two dogs, where humidity and a southern drawl are never too far away. You can catch us on the beltline when we're not working!

MY APPROACH

It doesn't matter to me if you're tall, short, young, old, skinny, big, stylish, not stylish, clumsy, straight laced, goofy, gay, straight, trans... whatever else. Whoever you are, I want you to have awesome photos you love of yourself, that reflect who you are in a beautiful and visually evocative way.

I strive to help each and every client look and feel their best in photos that they will love forever - using a prompt-based approach instead of lots of posing, photo sessions are fun and positive experiences.

If I sound like your kind of person and you like this approach, chances are we could make some pretty sweet photos together. Hit that contact button! I'd love to connect.
