humans in love - THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE :

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 Mitchell (Anna Delores Clients 2017)

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.  -J&J

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


Rhianna is amazing!!! We hired her for our wedding and not a day goes by that people who were present still bring up the awesome photographer and photos we have from our awesome wedding. It was truly a great party with friends and family and Rhianna and her staff were able to capture every moment in perfection! My husband and I love our photos and were so happy we chose Rhianna Mercier Photography. Rhianna also did our engagement photos. She inspired us to do a shoot at the local fair. It was so much fun and put us at easy with her on our wedding day. We love all our photos and would 100% recommend her! -D&J

Wow!!! Me and my boyfriend wanted some simple photos of us to hang around our place and at work. I called Rhianna up and she walked us through the entire process. We met up and discussed outfits, location, and exactly what it was we wanted. She was so easy to talk to and work with. Not only did she have us laughing but she was completely professional. All we had to do was show up and she did the rest. We got our photos back and were blown away with the results. We got results that not only surpassed her super reasonable rates, but the photos were so incredible as well. She lead us through the entire experience with comfort and ease. It was like hanging out with my best friend for that time. 

I HIGHLY recommend Rhianna's work to anyone who's looking for not only breath taking photos, but also a relaxed environment where you can be yourself and let your beauty and happiness shine!!! 

Are there any more fancy descriptive words to throw in here to display me squealing in happiness right now??!?? :) - L&D

 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!

-Jessica & Winston


We genuinely could not have envisioned having photographers as remarkable as Rhianna and her team. I can't even keep track of how many of our guests have reached out to us to tell us how much they loved our photographers (really). Rhianna has this incredible ability to connect and mesh with every type of person, and made the photography experience one of the most enjoyable and memorable parts of our wedding. Oh, and the pictures are out of this world. Perfection. Could go on like this all day... Just book them. Rhianna - you rock. Thank you so much!
