  • WELCOME!

    I’m Riette, a Virginia wedding photographer. I love the color teal and shopping at Target. I snack all day long, am an Apple enthusiast, and adore my two cats, Melody and Harmony.

    My heart for photography is founded in relationships. I’m fulfilled, energized, and enthused by building lasting relationships, and I love how photography connects me with people.

    The ability to capture moments for you is another goal of my work. I take pride in giving my clients images that are clean, bright, and timeless - images that, in 30 years, will represent your wedding day as it was when you said, “I do,” without trendy edits that will make your children laugh at the way things were done back in your day.

    It’s an honor to be a part of your wedding day, your special family moments. I cherish the opportunity to make you smile, and to preserve your memories for the ages.

    Romans 1:20 (ESV) For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Baby Williams | Newborn

This sleepy little boy melted my heart! I could just cuddle these little ones all day long! A while ago I ordered some wraps and the “Guava” color showed up and it’s burnt orange! The company ended up sending me another one that was closer to the color I had intended for it to be, […]
