I believe in the power of marriage.
I believe weddings are less about that one day and more about a life-long love story. I believe the silly moments, the belly laughs, and the sweet kisses are all worth capturing. I believe in creating a day that displays your love so perfectly, it inspires others to do the same.
Oh, you do too? Well my dear, you’re in the right place.
you may be my kind of bride if....
Your love is FUN, deep, and strong. You value tradition but you also know it’s way more important to make the day unique to you.
You get excited over the little details, the pretty florals, and that yummy cake, but you get most excited over the first kiss with your groom.
You’re totally cool with me becoming your friend and dancing with you on your wedding day. (I’m warning you now…when I Wanna Dance with Somebody comes on, I just can’t help myself.)
You love bright, romantic photos that capture GENUINE love and joy.
You believe more in building a strong foundation for your marriage than you do in planning a pretty wedding day (although that’s fun too!)
Becca is the kindest soul who brought peace, affirmation, and helpful direction to our wedding day. She captured it all beautifully, and we cannot recommend her highly enough!
Working with Becca was an exceptional experience. From our first meeting to receiving our gallery, Becca communicated effectively and joyfully with us. The photos she took of our wedding day were beautiful and a great mix of candids and posed shots. We are so in love with our gallery and can't wait to receive our album! I would recommend Becca any day to anyone without reservations. If you are looking for beautiful, bright photos that capture your day, look no further, Becca is the gal for you!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Becca! She did both our engagement photos and wedding and I am in absolute awe of the moments and emotion she was able to capture throughout the day. Throughout the course of the day, she was both a kind friend- stopping to check on my nerves, and a seasoned professional. Looking through all of the photos, it is impossible to pick a favorite because they are all so wonderful. I still gush and smile when I look through the album and cannot thank her enough for all the memories I will be able to cherish forever.
My husband and I have used Becca twice now and have loved every minute working with her. Not only is she professional but also kind and funny. During our sessions she made us feel at ease and comfortable. We also cannot say enough good things about the images we received, absolutely amazing. We highly recommend Becca and will be using her again in the future!
We had our engagement photos done in March and loved them! Becca was so patient and down to earth. She made sure to ask if there were any pictures we just had to have, and she did an amazing job of balancing letting us be ourselves with giving us some direction- which we needed! We were so excited when we got the pictures back and can’t wait to get some printed. Thank you, Becca- we can’t wait for our wedding day!
I offer multiple packages and a-la-carte items to allow you the opportunity to build your wedding day around your needs. Once you inquire, I'll send you all of the details!
ELOPEMENTS & DESTINATION WEDDINGS
I find something so special about couples who are all about their love and true to themselves. I’m available for Elopements under 20 people and Destination Weddings all over!
Interested in a lifestyle, family, maternity, or other portrait session? I take a limited amount per year so inquire asap!
I think we'll be a great match! How do I book?
Yay! All you need to do is fill out the Inquiry Form and I'll get back to you within 24-48 hours. Next, we'll set up a time to meet, talk on the phone, or FaceTime/Skype so we can get to know each other more to make sure we'll be a good match! I also require a $700 non-refundable retainer fee and signed contract to secure your wedding date.
Do you travel outside of the Raleigh/Durham area?
For sure! In fact, I have travelled all through NC, SC, and VA for weddings, and I have no problem adding to that list! Just let me know where you were thinking when you inquire and I can put together a custom quote for you! (P.S.- I love the beach and the mountains!)
How would you describe your style?
I describe myself as a bright and airy photographer, who always uses natural-light to her advantage. I love working with romantic and genuine couples, and I try and emulate your love for one another as authentically as possible. This comes from getting to know one another, and not being too stuck on “posing.” Instead, I coach you along the way, and bring you into moments where you’re comfortable enough to let your guard down. This way, I can capture those moments you’re dreaming of!
I hate having my pictures taken and feel awkward. Can I swap out an engagement session for something else?
Let’s be real, everyone says they feel awkward in front of a camera when they first book with me! But have you seen my photos?! No one ever looks awkward! Engagement Sessions are important for just that. They give us a chance to work together before the wedding. You get comfortable with my style and how I shoot. I will never let you look awkward because once we get started I promise you won’t feel that way anymore. In fact, when it’s all over you’ll actually be surprised with how much fun you had!
Who will be my Second Photographer?
Your Second Photographer will be hired by me and will operate under Becca Rizzo Photography, so it is never anything you ever need to worry about! These are photographers I've worked with before, who are conducive to my style, and trust in their ability to photograph & serve you well! The Second always follows my lead for the day, which means your Wedding Gallery will be seamlessly consistent throughout. The best thing about having two photographers? You get so many more photos and memories captured!!
First Look or No First Look?
I am always a full supporter of simply staying true to you. The answer to this question really comes down to what is MOST important to you on your wedding day. Once you have that decided, we figure out which options makes the most sense in order to capture what is truly most important to you, but also creates a relaxed & smooth timeline for you and your fiancé. No one wants to be rushed or stressed on a wedding day!
