Hi, I'm Riley!

My primary goal, besides giving you great photos, is to help your planning process go as smoothly as possible! Whether it's a family session, an engagement, or a wedding, I know that sometimes it can feel overwhelming and you’re looking for a photographer who you can trust to guide you through the process so you don’t have to stress. I felt the same when my wife and I were wedding planning, so I know how important it is to have someone in our corner just to make your life a little easier. I’m grateful that I get to choose the life of a photographer and do what I love, and share that gratitude with you on your big day!


"Love how easy he is to work with!"

Riley was our wedding photographer, and we feel extremely blessed to have had him take our photos! We got the sneak peeks and so far they all turned out AMAZING! My husband and I can't wait to see the rest of the photos. See for yourself how awesome Riley was in capturing the magic of our marriage! We loved how easy he was to work with, how he kept the fun going to capture our most genuine smiles, and just how skilled he was in capturing all the important highlights and raw emotions. Every time I look at our photos I re-live the joy felt at those moments. If you're looking for a highly-skilled, professional photographer, look no further than RileyCaptures! We highly recommend him to all!

"Above & BEYOND! Seriously, a one-of-a-kind photographer!"

Riley did such an amazing job as the photographer for my wedding. When I was researching wedding photographers prior to my wedding, I was looking for the best of the best and that's exactly what I got with Riley (wedding photos were a high priority-must for me). Having Riley as our wedding photographer was hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made. He was on top of it all - from start to finish. He showed up to the venue on time (even a little earlier then the time we scheduled him to arrive at) and that was just amazing!

"Riley is such an amazing, professional, positive, and all-around awesome photographer!!!"

He and his gorgeous assistant were hired for my bridal shower and I am obsessed with the final products. He got my photos to me early, and he helped with posing/detail/ photo ideas. He took photos of absolutely everything and did not miss one special moment! He and his assistant were so kind and had an amazing vibe. I can tell he puts his heart into his work and his passion shows throughout the photo shoot, as well as in the final products!!! I am beyond pleased and 100% recommend this photographer for any event!

"Every time we look at our photos, we are reminded of the great time we had!"

Riley is detailed-oriented, organized and he prepared us for a successful photoshoot. We started with a phone introduction. Riley took the time to get to know us, our love story, what we are looking for and how he can best assist us. He gave us tips and advice on how to prepare for the shoot (ex: clothings, locations, sample pictures, what to expect on the day of the shoot etc). He followed up with us during the preparation process and answered questions that we had. The day of the photoshoot was great. Riley is genuine and friendly and we were comfortable with him. He gave us tips on postures and movements to look our best in pictures, yet still allowed us to be ourselves. We had so much fun during the photoshoot.
