Thank you for stopping by my web-page, my name is Rhianna and I am an artist.
I am so grateful so of found this expression of my journey. To be able to breathe in and document love, light, colors, and photography. I can't stop taking pictures of my fiancee, my children, my art & business, my talented friends, travel partners, my couples, their people. I need lots and lots of coffee to wake the creative hamster up with this light box, but extra shot for sure. I specialize in fine art hybrid wedding photography and a really good time, haha. However, how I shoot weddings has everything to do with how I see the human experience, light, shadows, weather, wardrobes, emotions on people, places and or things. How it all really was/feels.
I try my best to live it all up to the fullest, depending on whether or not I am living with my heart first. So, that's why I say heartiest, just to remember that I can choose it. This part makes my vulnerable, it allows me to grow and touch and see without categorizing it or labeling you but being an artist of acceptance for whats in front of me and the artist collaboration at hand.
I want to remember every journey I meet. Capturing the human experience that we are having, the deep love for family or each other, the trust from human to human in friendship, the tears.....let'em roll!!!!! and the party; I do really really love a good dance party.
I hope that I can transport you back into that moment and you can almost feel, smell and taste what it was like. I hope that you feel safe enough to let what's inside of you shine, the whole time.
I do love to talk about classic portraiture and photography any chance I can. We can always meet at a museum or art show! I could make a date once a day with someone new and it would never get old, conversation is apart of this art thing for me.
Oh yea, I'm just a big cry baby all the time, I love sappy movies and I love die-hard romantics, the real real down to earth tribe. I am an open book and I love adventures. If you like lists cause I do well, here's more "about me" in a list:
I think I decided to make photography my career because I wanted to leave something behind, all we can take with us is the love we shared and the impact we made. This is all apart of the beauty of being human and photographing it. Which in this line of work is important, to see the beauty first, because you each of us truly are beautiful.
My job however is to “think outside the box," take lighting, weather, timing, precision, emotions, moments, and true connection into consideration, while I work on a timeline and make sure my team and equipment is ready to create it for you.
My goal is to give you exceptional service and artful images. All heart and art, high quality, visually stunning, appealing images that make you want to stop everything and look at them over and over. I want it to be like a painting. I want you to be able to trust that I am a professional giving you the very best service and information every time we speak. I want you know that this is a mostly planned/some things are unplanned life event and things can go different but we always make it work, because it always does. I want you to enjoy every moment and I want to take pictures of all of it, the good, the bad, the beautiful.
I pour my heart and soul and tons of time into this photography role, and I am constantly reviewing and learning and growing. I review every single image before releasing it to you. Every image is a reflection of you and myself and just "ok" doesn't fly. I want you to love love love your images. I want you to enjoy getting your portrait taken. Sometimes it's too much fun.
I have been photographing people for over 9 years now, and I was lucky enough to attend Brooks Photography Institute 2011-2012, graduating with a certificate in professional portrait wedding photography. I have been trained by some of the best, and I am forever grateful for my mentorships and inspirations. I work for hire with many companies in the state of California, different publications and editorial work as well. I work very closely with Anna Delores Photography as an Associate Photographer. I attend workshops constantly to expand my art, and keep me up to date on everything photography related. I am based out of Ventura, CA and I love to travel (especially to the Hawaiian Islands). #mybagsarepacked #letsdothis #aloha
I hope that this gives you a little more insight into me, and what you're getting into. I cannot wait to chat with you! I can't wait to hear your love story.. Let's get coffee! :)
