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 probably don't want your engagement or wedding photos to look like they're from prom in the mid 2000s. What will mean the most to you down the line is emotional, memory preserving photographs in true life color. And babe, that's what I do best!

"If you are thinking of hiring Riley, do it!!!!! My husband and I first had a mini session done with her in 2020 to take engagement photos and see if she was a good fit for us. We had the BEST time and felt so comfortable with her! We immediately decided to book her for our elopement, and also asked her to come take photos of us in the house we had bought.
Riley Jean was so amazing in helping us through the process of our elopement, I felt like we were long time BFF’s ( I even sent her pictures of me dress shopping!) and really appreciated how responsive she was! My husband and I have already decided that Riley is going to take photos for every milestone in our lives."

"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."

"Riley is AMAZING! My husband and I worked with her for our elopement. The conversations leading up to the big day were so easy and she had so many great ideas for our special day. She knew how to make us both comfortable in front of the camera and honestly made the day even more memorable.
Her bright personality and great sense of humor never burned out. She made the planning so much easier and gave us insight in ways we wouldn’t have expected. She’s always quick to respond in a thoughtful manner and the creative ideas never run out.
We are so excited to be able to share our elopement with family and friends through the beautiful photos Riley was able to capture. We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with someone so kind hearted and talented. We will definitely be returning to Riley for more sessions in the future. Keep up the amazing work friend!

"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 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."
