Livermore Wedding Photographer | Amber Rivas Photography
Amber Rivas

timeless, colorful, and genuine

Livermore photographer specializing in weddings and portraits

Serving the intentional bride and groom with photos they'll love to look back on together in twenty years.

I believe in a Creator who made me to be creative. I’m happiest when I get to dream big about making beautiful things, and I strive to have my photography serve you and your loved ones in the best ways that I know how.

I'm Amber

I'm a Bay Area photographer based in Livermore, CA. The Tri-Valley (Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore) is my favorite place to take photos and there are many beautiful locations for sessions (and weddings!) right here in town. But I am happy to travel around the whole Bay Area to wherever you would like your photos taken!

I'm Amber

Rue (aka #ruerivas) is my dream cat. Follow me on IG @amberrivasphotography and you'll be sure to see LOTS of Rue. She plays fetch with hair ties, steals tortillas from the bread box, and loves Alex more than me (even though I picked her).

Let's capture your memories.

You've likely seen a LOT of different styles as you look for a photographer. When choosing a photographer, make sure to pay attention to their editing style. When I shoot and edit, I'm going for authentic, true to life colors, and a timeless, natural look. Your photos will be first taken in a way that makes you look your BEST, and then edited to account for variations in lighting and anything else that may need some quick touching up! If you like this style, this may mean we're a good fit.

As you look through my galleries, make sure you like my style! All of my sessions will match what you see on this website! For more information, check out my blog post on style types.

If you like what you see, next steps are getting details on what services I offer and contacting me to set up your session! Check out pricing and package options, and then be sure to send me an email.

I absolutely LOVED having pictures done by Amber Rivas. She was professional, timely, enthusiastic and always made me feel more at ease in front of the camera. She beautifully captured our relationship in a sweet but fun way that I always love looking back on. I have printed and framed so many of the pictures she took of us and have them up around the house.


Amber did an amazing work. Not only we love her work but also all the families and guests. The difference between Amber and other photographers is that she takes care of every detail. It is like she is your own sibling taking care of your wedding.


We had a great time doing our engagement shoot with Amber! From recommending locations down to outfits and poses, Amber generously guided us in so many ways. She helped my fiancé who is extremely camera shy feel totally at ease.


I LOVE Amber’s photos - they’re bright, crisp, and natural. Amber is professional in the way she carries herself and very passionate about her work, not to mention fun to hang out with.
