I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in South Bend, Indiana. I first picked up a camera when I was 12 years old and it gave me one of the greatest gifts I could have ever asked for. It's given me a look into the stories and experiences that make people who they are and the magic that brings them together. No matter what this time in your life looks like, it's worth remembering and honoring.

Thanks for being here.


A little about me

I grew up in a small rural town in northern Indiana. I spent most of my childhood catching frogs, swimming in my grandparent's pool, playing capture the flag with my neighbors-turned-best friends, riding four wheelers, and playing in the creek. It’s shaped so much of who I am today, and I have found a deep appreciation for the simple things. Indiana is my home and it’s where my heart always comes back to. 

Outside of photography, I spend my time nose deep in romance novels, kayaking on the lake, taking long bike rides, eating lots and lots of ice cream (I could live off of chocolate), catching a baseball game or two, or going somewhere new. I love live music - concerts are my jam. I’m an avid fan of crime shows/podcasts and Notre Dame football. Go Irish!

More than anything I love to be with the people I love, my family and chosen family, and my husband who love me unconditionally, just as I do them.


Always in your corner, 

"Riley was amazing through engagement photos to our wedding day photos. She made our day absolutely perfect! My wife and I couldn't be happier and will continue to use her for family photos and recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer in the future. Riley, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being the best in the industry! Mayely and I consider you as family and we really appreciate all your hard work and caring heart!"

"Riley was hands down the best photographer we could have asked for. She got to know us as a couple and she really captured the night we envisioned. She had tons of great ideas for cute spots or poses, and she also made us feel comfortable getting our pictures taken, as well as our guests. She listened to what we were looking for and captured the candid moments from our wedding that we adore. There is not a single moment from our wedding day that we did not get a perfect picture of. She really was the perfect choice and we would recommend her to everyone!"

- Abe S.

"Riley captured our day so, so beautifully! She is such a trustworthy and kind soul. She is detail oriented and makes sure to remind you throughout the day that your wedding day is YOUR day, and to enjoy it the way you want to! I truly think Riley is an expert in photographing Catholic weddings. She managed to get all the important pictures we wanted from our wedding mass. If you are a Catholic bride and need a photographer, Riley is your girl! We are blessed to have had her photograph our day and we hope to use Riley to photograph all the major milestones in the future!"

"Riley photographed our wedding and we could not have been more pleased. I can't help but sing praises! Riley is everything you could want in a photographer - from her calming and relaxed personality to her incredible eye for photography - she could not have been a better fit. She has a peaceful presence about her that makes the stress and high emotions melt away. It is so evident how much she cares about her clients and the product she is delivering. Riley has a knack for capturing the most lovely candids full of joy of not just us, but all of our family and friends as well. She does not disappoint!"
