my name is river.

hey there

I currently reside in Atlanta with my dogs Waffles & Rosco. My free time is spent enjoying time with my amazing friends, exploring nature, working on recovery, and doing what I can for others.

Can't wait to hear your story!

Artistic by nature, I've always been drawn to compelling stories and beautiful visuals. I spent a lot of childhood daydreaming of adventures I now get to live — but believe it or not, my career in photography was accidental. I'm definitely not complaining though! My camera has allowed me to travel the world, into profound and irreplaceable moments in very special people's lives. I absolutely love what I do and am grateful every day.

part artist, part dreamer, definite goofball

who else remembers pen pals?
