authentic & artistic photography

I am passionate about creating personal, sensitive and sincere images that evoke a moment in time. The collection of images I create will become windows to your memories. I firmly believe these images should be personal, infused with what is valuable to you. The images I take will capture you and your loved ones with authenticity, so you can recognise the personality and feel the emotion. They will reflect the light, the texture, the feeling of what it was like to be there – they will transport you back. I’ve been told by my couples that I am a calming influence, that on a wedding day I’m not noticed, but always there when needed. That is exactly how I would like to be.


“Ria is without exception the finest photographer I have ever experienced. The quality of her work is impeccable, with such wonderful and innovative attention paid to the details that really made our wedding photos come alive and capture the essence of the day. The generous and outstanding service she offers (both online and in person) is second only to the patient and respectful approach she personally takes to capture those precious moments”
– Ben & Sarah


"On the top suppliers list for some of the UK’s best venues, Ria is a firm favourite with modern brides looking for truly timeless images with emotion behind them. Using natural light, she captures all of the moments you knew you wanted, as well as the ones you didn’t!"
- BRIDES magazine online 2017


“We are beyond happy with Ria’s beautiful images from our wedding. When we look at them, we are transported back to our special day: the breeze and sunlight in the trees, the laughter and chatter of our guests, the subtle details, and all the moments of love and joy that were shared. Ria is a gifted artist and manages to convey these moments in an incredibly natural, authentic way. Her collection tells a beautiful, unique and detailed story of our day. We would gladly recommend Ria to anyone.”
– Anneliese & Will

I have chosen fine art albums and print presentation to compliment the images I create. I have a unique collection of products that find that balance between making the most of today’s technology, having true beauty and the highest quality, while taking account of the scarcity of our resources.
