Pictures, or it didn't happen!

I got my real start in the wider world of photography through events, and I'm grateful everyday for it.

While I worked a few events throughout high school, university opened a whole new set of doorways for me. I was able to photograph small drinks receptions, 2000+ person balls, massive concerts where the energy was infectious, and everything in between.

I love event photography. There is always so much to see. If not candids of the guests, then shots of the decorations, or pictures of the performers. The sheer possibility when shooting events never fails to excite me.

Whether it's an electrifying political rally, a concert like no other, a Super Sweet 16, or a massive ballroom full of people living out their fairytale fantasies for one night, I can't wait to help you capture these events in their full glory.

countdown

You've counted down the days, we've had a chat, and made a schedule. Now, it's the day of your shoot! Time to relax and just have some fun without worrying about getting the "right" shots. I'll make sure that everything goes according to our chats. The only thing you have to do is enjoy! 

Sign the contract, put down the deposit, and we'll be all good to go! Before the event, I'll ask that you send me a schedule of the day itself, as well as any specific things I should note. I'll also always be one email away if you need any questions answered at all.

You'll receive the photos in the agreed upon timeframe. They'll be in an easy-to-access link where you can share them with all the guests of your events. Show them to everyone, tell your guests to share them with the world, and make sure to tag @riyakphoto when you post them!

The first thing we'll do is schedule a phone or video call to make sure our personalities mesh well, learn your expectations, and confirm that I can provide what you're looking for. If we're a fit, I'll help you choose a package and payment plan that works with your specific requirements.

If you're considering having me capture your special moments...

Ready to seal the deal?

Are you a fan of my candid, authentic photo style that looks for personality, not perfection? Looking forward to the idea of making a friend who knows just a little too much about good lighting? If you're down to make sure you capture your memories in a no-pressure, high-quality environment, then I'm down.

Unforgettable moments. Infectious energy. Forever memories. Let's do this.
