capturing memories & mother nature

Based in Vermont


about me

  • Instagram

I grew up in a small town in southern Vermont. I got my first camera when I turned 17 & I've been constantly taking photos ever since. 

I consider myself to be an adventure lifestyle photographer. I also specialize in portrait, family, event, engagement, & couple photography.

Photography is special to me because I love turning a fleeting moment into something permanent. Collaborating with clients to understand their vision and preferences for each shoot is super important to me.

I've worked with businesses like Nordica and Turtle Fur for merchandise, marketing, & event photography. 



  • Wow Riley WOW


  • I’m your biggest fan just so you know ok???

  • I am literally over the moon and shook at how good they turned out. Bro. 


Riley did a fabulous job capturing our proposal on the top of Okemo Mountain! She was creative, positive, and so genuine! She quickly turned the photos around with beautiful edits. We are so grateful Riley was referred to us and would highly recommend her to help capture your special moments!


Extremely professional, super nice and was such a pleasure to work with (she even let us use her mitts because we were freezing). Best of all, her photos came out AMAZING. We've taken professional photos numerous times; from Michigan to New York to Orlando. These photos were definitely my favorite.


Thanks you so much for making us feel comfortable and full of bliss.

I enjoyed your approach to shooting: poise, thoughtful and engaging.


Your creativity and eye for a shot is paramount!


The pictures are amazing!!! 🤩

Just looked through them and honestly loved them all.


Thank you again so so much!! You did a fantastic job❤️❤️
