Hi, I'm Riley Jean!

Creator of candid, genuine, + vibrant photos for the wildly in love

get to know me

I am a west coast based wedding and elopement photographer; I capture couples in their element, being their genuine selves. At the heart of what I do is the desire to keep things REAL. Real colors, real moments, real laughs. Let's be honest, you don't want your engagement or wedding photos to like prom in the mid 2000s. What you will want is emotional, memory preserving photographs in true life color. And babe, that's what I do best!

let's adventure together; your memories, your way

Catch me on the 'gram...

"Riley has such a warm and friendly personality. I’m not a huge fan of people taking my pictures but she made me feel so comfortable and there was no awkwardness with us. She is so accommodating and her communication skills are top notch. The whole process from when I reached out to her to when I received my photos was all so smooth. She responds quickly and helped me figure out what exactly it is that I wanted. My husband and I loved working with her. My pictures turned out so amazing. The colors, the vibe, the quality, and how candid it turned out was just perfect. She captured our love so beautifully and I can tell that she put a lot of time and effort into our photos. Riley is the bomb. PERIODT."

"Choosing Riley to photograph our wedding is one of the best decisions we made in the whole planning process. Not only is she a wonderfully talented photographer, she was also an incredible person to have in our corner. We ended up on our COVID-19 wedding plan C, and Riley was such a great buddy to us amidst the chaos. She brought valuable insight and bubbly, reassuring energy and made sure that we felt celebrated. Her husband was also a great help- they make such a fun team! We are so happy with the way she captured all of the magic and emotion of our little local park wedding and look forward to getting more photos done by her in the future. I recommend Riley Jean Photo Co. to anyone who is getting married (great vendors like Riley will make your day wayyyy easier and more enjoyable) or just wants some beautiful photos taken!"

"Choosing Riley + Daylin to capture our forever moments was by far the best wedding decision My husband and I made. With circumstances being altered due to COVID regulations. We had to postpone and change venues a couple times. Last minute we also had to change the wedding arrangement to an indoor ceremony/reception due to wildfire smoke. Through all of this Riley was beyond versatile and considerate. Along with her bubbly personality, she made sure our special day was everything we hoped for. Highly recommend for all your photography needs. She is passionate for her work. We couldn’t be more in awe over our photos. They will be cherished for a lifetime."
