When it comes to weddings, RVR Photography will work with your wedding coordinator, your DJ, the church and venue representatives and any person(s) that are a part of your special day!

Richard and Vanessa also work with the ceremony officiant's representative to learn ahead of time what is acceptable when it comes to capturing your wedding ceremony. Some churches allow flash, others don't. Some allow free movement of the photographers, other don't. With RVR Photography, you need not worry about the details! Leave it Richard and Vanessa and there won't be any surprises when it comes to capturing your special day and telling your story!
