Hey, I'm Riley!

Most days, I’m telling other people’s stories but here is a little slice of mine.

Growing up, I was eager to see life outside of my hometown in Des Moines, Iowa. I soon ventured out and made it to some far out locales, Denmark, Hawaii, Ireland, you name it!

I quickly developed a love of travel and all the stories I bumped into along the way.

Working behind a lens, I found I could capture something real. I could freeze moments in time and help others to hold onto those memories. I’m confident that this is for my forever gig. The beauty never gets old.

When I’m not working, I’m exploring my adopted city of Austin, Texas. The pandemic hasn’t been great for my coffee shop and brewery fixation, or my love of performing stand-up comedy. But it’s helped me get outside more, and meet (from an appropriate distance) some of the people who make this such an awesome place to live.

I hope you’ll be the next awesome person I meet, whether you’re here or elsewhere.

Get in touch and let’s make something beautiful!

We are so awkward in front of a camera! Can you help?


How many images will I get back?

Absolutely! As a certified awkward person, I’m well aware of your struggle. But I’m skilled, somehow, in making others feel comfortable. At the beginning of every session, I like to discuss the usual pain points — like posing — and provide tricks to help you feel at ease. As we’re shooting, I’ll help direct your movements and interactions for the best, most authentic images.

I'm going to be honest, I don't like putting a limit on the number of photos I give back. I do give back an average of 55 images an hour. I don't believe in giving you a certain amount and then making you pay more for the rest. I just edit everything I take and deliver you the very best ones!
