My name is Aaron Riddle and I am a professional photographer serving Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. specializing in modern wedding photography and portrait photography. As a wedding photographer my style is unobtrusive, friendly photojournalism. I capture the spontaneous smiles, people living in the moment and details of your day as they naturally unfold. Your job is to relax and enjoy your wedding! My job is to document it for you to relive forever. Website: www.acriddle.com Email: aaron@acriddle.com Phone: 540-686-1220 My Style My style as a wedding photographer is unobtrusive, friendly photojournalism. I capture the moments of your day as they naturally unfold. While I take time to capture traditional posed photographs as well, I believe the most special photographs are taken when I observe and record the events of your day as they happen…the bride casually kissing the groom when no one is looking…the flower girl gazing at a single flower during the wedding reception…or the father of the bride hugging his daughter one last time before she leaves for the honeymoon. For this reason, I have had several of my former clients give me the tongue-in-cheek title of “ninja photographer”. As one mother-of-the-bride put it, “it is perfect description for what I think is the most distinguishing characteristic of your photography.” As a Client, You are My Top Priority
My clients will tell you that I will work as hard as anyone out there to capture your wedding and tell the story of your day the best I can. I am easy-going, yet very professional, punctual and accommodating. I care about my clients and they always come first. I believe in responding to your questions right away, communicating promptly and doing everything I can to meet your needs as a photographer.

When I photograph your wedding, one of my trusted associates will accompany me to ensure your wedding day receives the full coverage it deserves.

If my calendar is available, I and one of my associates will photograph your wedding. If I am already booked, your wedding can be covered by one of my associates (this will be mentioned when quoting you a price).

No. I only photograph one wedding per weekend to fully dedicate myself to covering the event.

I've been in and attended multiple weddings Aaron has photographed. That's why I knew the day we got engaged that he was the only photographer I trusted to capture our big day. I was almost willing to set our date around his availability!
Aaron took our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't love them more. He is super easy to work with, very organized, professional, and incredibly quick in delivering the final package to you. All of this while being a great friendly guy.
I would absolutely recommend anyone to use him because you will not be disappointed!

We hired Aaron Riddle (Aaron Riddle Photography) to shoot our engagement photos and our wedding in Winchester, VA. From the very beginning, we could tell that Aaron is very passionate about photography. Combine that with his professionalism and you have a recipe for greatness.

During our engagement shoot, we immediately felt comfortable working with Aaron. We could tell that he had a great eye for photography. There was no doubt that there was going to be some great photos that we would be able to share with our family and friends. Just as we suspected, the photos turned out amazing! Aaron was very quick to provide us with the results (only 2-3 days).

Aaron had his hands full with our bridal party during our wedding. He was patient and very professional throughout the wedding day. Again, we saw that he had a great eye for the scenery around Winchester and knew the photos were going to be great. At the reception, we barely noticed Aaron taking photos, but he was all over the place capturing some amazing photos.

Needless to say we were just as impressed with our wedding photos as we were with our engagement photos. To our amazement, we received an email from Aaron just 3 days after our wedding with a link to our "best" photos (well over 400) that had been touched up. Overall, we are more than satisfied with the job Aaron did.

We highly recommend using Aaron Riddle Photography for you wedding, engagement, baby, and event photography needs. Thank you for everything, Aaron!

We hired Aaron for our wedding after he shot our friends wedding and did a great job! He was priced very reasonably and he was very easy to work with leading up to the wedding. He took charge during the wedding and made sure that we got the shots we needed. His assistant Karla was great as well! The most amazing part was that we got a link to an online gallery and a USB in the mail with all of our pictures just two weeks after the wedding!! Thanks Aaron!

Aaron Riddle was an absolute pleasure to work with. We first got to know him during our engagement shoot and he was a blast. My groom isn't really into getting his picture taken, but Aaron managed to bring out his fun side and he ended up enjoying the shoot. We laughed the entire time and Aaron can vouch for that! Aaron was incredibly accommodating and thorough without taking too much time. He was so fast! I was so impressed that he had our pictures ready just a few days later. From our engagement shoot to the days leading up to our wedding, Aaron was always very responsive and attentive to any questions I had.

At our wedding ceremony and reception, we hardly realized he was there. He took some really great photos that we will always treasure. Best part? He is so reasonable!!! I highly recommend Aaron Riddle to anyone looking for an extremely professional and equally enjoyable photographer. His pictures are incredible and he is quick to deliver them. He is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him again!
