RLP Studios specializes in translating the emotion and connection of life's moments into heirloom-quality art. It's such an amazing privilege to be a part of that, to share the most important moments of a lifetime.

Our style is fresh, unique, whimsical, and expressive. We see moments you've been planning down to the last detail as well as the completely unrehearsed moments that make your wedding celebration special-- capturing the beauty and joy of your first moments as husband and wife, the playful banter of attendant revelry, the flower girl as she's laughing with glee, the pensive father before he gives his daughter away. Wherever your love takes you, we'll be there with fresh eyes.

Our studio is headed by us: us being Will and Emma, a husband/wife team. We've been creative partners for over a decade and bring that dynamic sense to every moment we capture. Neither of us is the "principle" photographer because we're artistic equals. We were art photographers long before we began photographing moving subjects and we still see life through a lens that hones in on details, subtleties, and the finer movements of love.

Part of that attention to detail includes how we relate to our couples. We get to know you-- the real you, not just the one that smiles for the camera. All of our packages include engagement sessions (which often begin with drinks or happy hour before-hand) and consultations throughout your engagement so that we can be sure to capture your vision and not just the one in our viewfinders.

All of our packages include a disk of all of the images that are included in your viewing gallery. They have all been edited and are suitable for small gift prints.

All of our couples have a personal gallery for viewing, ordering, and sharing with family and friends.

Will and Emma made an excellent team for our wedding and really listened to the shots that we wanted. Since we were planning our wedding from a distance, it was extremely helpful that they were timely in getting back to us, as well as flexible! When we had a question, they would always answer us quickly, whether in the office or at home! They were also able to see the ordinary with a creative eye! They were both extremely professional and personable. They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera! I would absolutely recommend them for great event memories!

From looking at our wedding photos, one could hardly tell that the jam-packed, three-day affair was arranged in merely six weeks. On the second night of festivities, while waiting to make my grand entrance, I was pondering how much we'd accomplished. Everything looked just perfect. Only the lovely Portland weather couldn't decide if it wanted to rain or not. I looked out the window to see Will put down his camera to haul tables in out of the drizzle, only to pull them back out from the tent moments later, when the sky cleared up. Will, Em, and the rest of the Reversed Lens Photography crew, will not only capture your special moments in an artful way, they are thoughtful, quick on their feet, highly intuitive, and politely persuasive. With really no guidance at all, they discerned every important Indian tradition to capture, determined which ginormous gaggle of people comprised my family and inner circle and beautifully photographed all of them including my dog. They made my photos a treasure. For a special event, they seriously warrant your consideration.
