Amber Rivas

Bay Area Photographer specializing in weddings and portraits

Hello! I'm a Bay Area wedding photographer specializing in portraits and weddings. I desire to showcase God's designs and use the creative skills that I've been given to bless others. When I have good pictures of myself with those that I love, I can look back and remember what we looked like and where we were, but also the emotions that we felt. The memories that come back with a good photo are irreplaceable, and I love being able to preserve them.

Hello! I'm a San Francisco Bay Area photographer (based in the East Bay, but I'll travel everywhere!). I specialize in weddings and portraits. The Bay Area is such a diverse community, both in its people and its landscape. I love the variety of venues and wedding styles here.

If you're looking for a wedding photographer for your wedding in the Bay Area, I'm happy to provide my services. I offer a complimentary engagement session and anniversary session with all of my wedding packages. Look through some of my previous work done in the area (click on the blog posts below!), and be sure to send a message through my contact form to get some more information. I'll send you a link to my wedding timeline planning guide just to say thanks for reaching out!

Looking for a portrait photographer for your couples session, family photos, or graduation announcements? I offer one and two hour sessions to fit those needs. Feel free to visit the services page for some pricing information, and contact me to schedule a session. I have a what-to-wear guide that I'm happy to send to you to help plan your outfits!
