Thank you for stopping by my web-page, my name is Rhianna and I am an artist.
To be able to breathe in and document love, light, colors, and photography in this way feels like a dream come true. To see the truth and love in people everywhere I travel is really a purpose. I can't stop taking pictures of EVERYTHING, my fiancee, my children, my art & business, my talented friends, travel partners, my couples, families; humans. I need lots and lots of coffee to do this. I truly wake the creative hamster up with this light box, but the extra shot helps 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, in light, in shadows, in all weather, all the wardrobes, the emotions on people, on places and in things. How it all really was & feels is everything.
I try my best to live my best life, depending on whether or not I am living with my heart first. So, that's why I say I'm a heartiest (google: Cleo Wade; she sings my heart song). I just need 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 just by being. An artist of acceptance is there for whats right in front of me and the artist collaboration at hand, it's simple and magical, I have the best job.
I want to remember every journey, so I capture it. Capturing the human experience from the deep love for family or just each other, the trust from human to human in friendship, in love, ALL the tears.....let'em roll!!!!! AND the party; I really really love a good dance party.
I hope that through choosing me to artistically represent your day from all of my years in photography and my travels around the world. I can almost guarantee that if we do my recipe we can transport you back into that moment and you can feel what it was like. I hope that you feel safe enough to let what's inside of you shine, the whole time, without reservation, but if reservations is your thing I am adaptable.
I am also a team player, engaged to a football coach, and ready to make sure we keep the positivity up, and always remember, people first.
I do love to talk about photography, if you are a hobbies I love chatting all about this craft. From Classic turn of the century portraiture and modern iphone photography, any chance I can let's chat. 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 also cry alligator tears all the time at my clients weddings. I am a die-hard romantics, I gel well with 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 in each part first, because everything is 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 all for you guys.
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 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. MOST important, I want you to enjoy every moment.
I pour my heart and soul and tons of time/investment into this photographer 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 with me.
You should love love love your images. I want you to enjoy getting your portrait taken. Sometimes it just feels like hanging out with an old friend.
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! :)
