Amber Rivas Photography Services

1. I'll help you with poses. You want to look natural of course, but my basic poses will help you look as NOT awkward as possible! Don't worry if you feel like you won't be good in front of the camera - you can't fail with these poses!

2. I'll give you some ideas on how to dress. You should coordinate of course, but we don't want TOO matchy-matchy. Once we book a date, I'll send over some ideas of how to make this happen.

3. Tell me what you're looking for and I'll give you some suggested locations! I provide a location guide upon booking! If you have a location that's meaningful to you, let me know so I can check it out ahead of time. Travel fees may apply for far distances, but for anywhere nearby, I am more than willing to meet at whatever place you have a special connection to.

Whether it's engagement photos, an anniversary session, or just for fun, I'd be happy to take some photos of you and your special someone. I'm always up for an adventure. Let's take photos in nature, or on a walk through the city, or doing your favorite activity together. A couples session should be a reflection of who you are together!

Couples Sessions

Family photos are something to be valued and treasured. In ten years you'll want to remember how your children looked when they were young, or how the generations all resemble each other in subtle ways. Or maybe you're a group of friends about to go off to college and want some pictures to hang on your dorm room walls. Whatever the occasion, I'd love to photograph you and your people!

one hour session time

Well, sort of. I plan for an hour, but this usually means we start when the light is good (generally 1-2 hours before sunset) and shoot until we have what we need. For sessions with little kids, this might mean half an hour before they're done. For couples who are changing outfits, this might be more like an hour and a half. No extra charge if we go a little bit over!

Within four weeks of your session, I'll deliver a high resolution gallery where you'll be able to download all of the images from your session. I don't put a minimum or maximum guarantee, but I typically deliver between 50 and 100 photos per hour, depending on the cooperation of the participants.

I'll send a location guide upon booking! It shows you my favorite locations and sample photos.

If you have a suggestion for a location that's meaningful to you, let me know! For locations 30+ miles away, there is a small travel fee.

She is professional, communicative, and will try to find the best scenery for her shoots. She really shines in outdoor, family portraits. Photos are natural, with beautiful lighting, and she's able to capture gorgeous moments due to her patience and artistic eye. You can tell there is a passion for her work. Highly recommend!

"Amber is our go-to photographer. 


She was able to incorporate his desire for structures in a natural setting for the background and made him feel comfortable during the shoot. She was timely- fast with her camera to maximize the best light and the turnaround for us to look at the proofs took only about a week. We are so happy with the final result! Thank you!

"Amber took my son's senior pictures and they turned out lovely.


 They way she makes photos feel light and airy is amazing. Besides her photography skills she is a delight to be around and spend the afternoon with. She will litterally crawl through bushes to get you the perfect shot! I had a blast getting my photos taken and plan on using her in the future too!

I highly recomend Amber Rivas Photgraphy. She is so talented!
