Hi, I am Riya.
A 31 year old gal based out of Kannapolis, NC, with a passion for capturing moments. I have always had an interest in photography and creating art but it wasn't until I was 27 years old that I wanted to become a Professional Photographer. I was raised in St.Petersburg, FL and have lived in Orlando, Brooklyn and New Orleans before I landed in the Charlotte area. When I am shooting in North Carolina, you can guarantee that I am always in a field of grass, under a patch of tall pines, in the mountains or in a studio located in Downtown Concord. I also spend a lot of time in Charleston, SC and consider it my second home. You can usually find me shooting on the beach, downtown in the beautiful cobble stone streets or inside of a beautiful studio space. Looking to shoot outside of the Carolinas? Let's go! This gal loves to travel! I have shot weddings in Nebraska and Tennessee and I have been dying to get to the Salt Flats in Utah.
