Riley Portraits & Weddings
A Northern Virginia Photographer
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kind of a Photographer are you?
I specialize in Weddings and Family Portraits. I do not, however, limit myself to just these categories. I can often be found photographing other events such as Creative Sessions, Seniors and More!
Where will my Session be Held?
There are several locations I really love! I base session locations off whether you are North or South of Quantico. I also factor in specific styles you might be interested in for scene backdrops. You can choose between rustic, modern, water or tree scenes.
How long will my Session be?
I offer 15, 45 and 60 minute sessions! You may also opt to add more time if you think you will need it. My 60 minute session is my most frequently booked session! Although 60 minutes may sound like a long time, I always recommend this option because it includes more images and allows for a larger variety of images!
What will my Session be like?
I like to keep sessions light and fun! We start with some posed portraits and then let the kids play while I capture them in a more natural state. I am high energy and will get down on your children's level to interact with them! You will spend your session laughing and enjoying your family's company!
What Should I wear?
Most people don't do family photos often, so when you do I always recommend dressing up a bit! Wearing some makeup helps to define your features! I also always recommend wearing something you feel confident and comfortable in. Most sessions will include walking and some in rougher terrain so take that into account for shoe choices.

Will I get the Digital Photos from my session?
Yes! I believe you should be able to share your images with friends and family online and on social media! Your images will come with a print release for you to print where you choose. I do recommend avoiding big box stores and discount labs for your images to maintain the quality.
Why Riley Photography?
I love connecting and meeting new people. It's important to me that you have an experience that is unique and personal to you! I want you to be able to look back on these images and remember the love you felt for your family and the moments you spent together. I love vibrant colors and love capturing raw emotion.
You can expect to have about 50% of your images posed and 50% of your images candid. In my post-editing I do basic skin correction such as acne removal. I also have been known to do a head-swap or two to get that perfect family portrait. I shoot with top of the line gear to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality images possible!
