My name is Aaron Riddle and I am a professional photographer residing in Winchester, Virginia. I specialize in wedding photography, portrait photography and special event photography needs. 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. 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 title of “ninja photographer”. As one mother-of-the-bride put it, “it is perfect description for what I think is the most distinquishing 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.
Your job is to relax and enjoy your wedding day! My job is to document it for you to relive forever. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Post-production work will be done to select photographs such as cropping, color-correction and digital enhancement.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, I have photographed weddings and events in a variety of lighting conditions ranging from outdoor weddings in the sun, rain, indoor ceremonies, candlelight receptions and even black light dance parties.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I shoot all my photography assignments in digital format.
How many photographers do you work with?
Regarding a second photographer / assistant, I photograph most of my weddings as an individual. Everything you see in my portfolio was taken by myself. The only time I have used assistants were very large weddings in which the couples had two events going on in two different locations (one of which ended before I would had time to get there). Therefore to keep my costs low, I never use an assistant unless I have to. For the majority of weddings I prefer to work alone. However, if you are interested in having an assistant work with me that is certainly an option (and I know several skilled and trust-worthy photographers whom I can hire). Please note this is an extra cost and will increase the price of your estimate.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I know several professional photographers that can fill in for me the day of the event should I become severely ill. Fortunately this has never occurred but I have plans in place in case it would.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not require a vendor meal. If you were planning on providing this, I thank for your generosity but will politely decline. The reason is that I have found that meal time is prime photographing time. While your guests wait for their food, I tend to see genuine personal interaction which makes for some great candid photography.

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!

We found out about Aaron after a recommendation from our friends who were recently married. He was our photographer for our engagement photos and for our wedding day. Aaron was an absolute pleasure to work with and is always very professional. We are so happy with the way our photos turned out, he is so creative and captured our wedding day perfectly. We received compliments from guests and our wedding party about how much they enjoyed working with him. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer. Thank you Aaron!!

We can't thank Aaron enough for the beautiful job he did with our wedding photos. He was very easy to work with and talk to, and had a great attitude throughout the whole day. This was greatly appreciated since we had a January wedding on a cold day with snow on the ground, and he never made us feel rushed and was willing to take a few adventures with us to get some truly remarkable pictures. True to his word, he was very unobtrusive but still managed to capture every significant moment of the day. His work with the colors and scenery was breathtaking. We were especially impressed with how quickly he had the photos turned around and what a professional presentation and thoughtful "thank you" card we received in the mail. We had high hopes, and he exceeded all of them. We would highly recommend Aaron for anyone's wedding or special event - you won't be disappointed!

Aaron was a pleasure to work with and our photographs are beautiful. The groom was very set on getting digital copies of all the photos with full rights, which we did. If you look at Aaron's website or Facebook page, you will get an idea of his style, which suited our wedding beautifully. For the posed pictures, he found the proper balance between telling us what to do to look good and letting us be us. At least twice, he anticipated shots my bridesmaids were about to ask for. Once we were at the reception, I basically didn't notice him, which was just want I wanted.

I heard about Aaron Riddle Photography through a friend who used him for her wedding. I thought her pictures were beautiful so I decided to give him a try. I was very impressed how easy and quick it was to contact and discuss with him. I moved to France a few months before our wedding which was super hectic but I never had to worry about anything with Aaron. He arrived early, stayed through the whole wedding, and was super easy to work with (even for my relatives who didn't speak English!). We had a link to our online photos a week after the wedding and he mailed us a USB drive with our edited photos to France a couple weeks after that. Everyone has complimented us on how beautiful the pictures turned out. I would highly recommend him to other brides!

Aaron was wonderful to work with! Even though we never had the chance to meet before the wedding, his communication and surveys made sure we had everything we needed to make our day go smoothly. The photographs came out beyond beautiful!

I can't say enough good things about Aaron Riddle Photography. From our initial meeting through our wedding day and beyond, Aaron was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to calls and emails throughout the entire process. He was calm and unobstrusive on the wedding day. Most importantly, he took AMAZING pictures. He has a very photojournalistic style (which is exactly what I was looking for) and was able to capture the many special moments that I wasn't able to witness for myself. Aaron did an especially good job working with the guests - both the adults and kids alike! I could not be happier with how everything turned out and I would highly recommend him to any bride in the area!

Aaron did a wonderful job for us. His pictures were unique and turned out very well. He was very receptive to our ideas for some pictures, and picked up on other oppurtunities as we went. He was very quick in getting us the final products which were just amazing! I would highly recommend him.

Aaron is a professional and a true artist. He was relaxed and calm on our big day and took AMAZING photographs. His edits were incredible and he really took the time to transform each photograph into a piece of art. His final package of our prints and photo CD was unexpectedly beautiful. He is thorough and thoughtful and we just had a fantastic experience using his services.

Our experience with Aaron Riddle Photography was nothing short of amazing. He was professional, punctual, and knowledgeable about what he does. Not only did he come with creative ideas, but he came with a pleasant attitude that kept a smile on everyone's faces during the photos. Aaron was very flexible when working with us to set up and shoot our engagement photos. We will be sure to work with him for all of our family events in the future.

Our pictures are beautiful!!! The photographer was the most important element for us because pictures are what we will have for the rest of our lives to remember our wedding day by and we are so happy we chose Aaron to do the job! He was quick to respond to our questions during the planning process and open to our ideas. On the wedding day he was pleasant, professional, flexible, and he took control when needed to direct our wedding party and family for pictures. We will continue to choose Aaron to capture more milestones in our future. THANK YOU SO MUCH AARON!!!

Aaron was very professional, and he took beautiful engagement and wedding photos for us. We did not have to wait long at all to receive our photos. He did an especially great job at our wedding with all of the family and the large bridal party we had; it is not easy trying to get group shots with so many people and very young kids. We were very impressed with the job he did all around and we are grateful that he was our photographer!

This photographer did an excellent job with our wedding photos! Mr. Aaron Riddle is new to wedding photography, but has experience in other types of photography. However, new to the wedding industry, he provided us with an unbeatable price. He also was able to do our engagement photos.

He is professional and courteous. He is very easy to get a hold of and flexible with changes. He quickly provided proofs and gave us a cd of all pictures included in contracted price. He is family and pet friendly (I am having him do a family project with pets).

Even though he was one of the most reasonably priced photographers in our area, I didn't feel that anything was sacrificed. You need to be clear with any special requests and events happening that day, but I think that would be true with everyone. Honestly, he did a great job. I would recommend him to friends and family.
