Rhianna is a truly amazing photographer.  Our photos are outrageously gorgeous, and they perfectly capture the feelings, personalities, experiences, and lively pulse of our wedding.  I am awed by how sensitive and artful they all are.  My husband and I feel we are living the wedding again when we look at our photos; what an incredible gift this is!  I would also add that Rhianna was a delight to work with.  She is warm, playful, intelligent, and creative, but also capable of fading into the background; we were never anxious or "in the spotlight" when we didn't want to be.  This allowed us to relax completely and contributed very significantly to our wedding's joyful, playful, and intimate atmosphere.  In short, we couldn't imagine a better experience! 

Love, Sarah and Alex

Rhianna was nothing but AMAZING! She was professional, creative, and most important made us feel comfortable. I LOVE my pictures and honestly never dreamed they would be this pretty. I feel like they are out of a magazine. Not only are some artistic and different, but most importantly my pictures are timeless. I recommend her to any bride, you will not be disappointed.

Rhianna is fantastic!! She did my engagement photos and wedding photos!! They came out so amazing and wonderful!! She really captured my husband and I in a true environment and made us feel comfortable during the whole experience! She was almost invisible during our wedding so nobody felt awkward or like they had to "pose" unless they wanted to, yet she managed to capture all our important moments!! She was great at communication and knew exactly what I wanted!        -Kerri & Matt


We hired Rhianna as our wedding photographer in Santa Barbara, and were extremely impressed. From her prompt communication before the event, to her way of getting all of the pictures we'll want for years to come without inhibiting the special day, working with her was a breeze. She was great at making portrait time fun and natural, and kept all of us entertained with her can-can moves. And, of course, her photography is amazing. Would definitely recommend.     With Love, Erika + John

El Encanto Rhianna Mercier Second Shooting for Anna Delores


Rhianna was a fantastic spark on our wedding day. Her high energy was contagious and she managed to get so many great shots of our very large families and everyone in attendance. We didn't do an engagement shoot so I was a little worried that getting on the same page would be a problem - but it wasn't at all. She was flexible with requests and made everyone feel like a million bucks. She also came with a second photographer as part of the price to capture multiple angles and locations. I highly recommend her!
