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!)
CHRISTIE & CODY
We could not be more thrilled with our decision to work with Becca as our wedding photographer. She was super helpful throughout the planning process, and she really listened to what was important to us and delivered. She helped make the day of stress-free, and she was incredibly efficient in taking first look photos, family photos and our bride and groom photos so that we were able to spend time with our family and friends at the reception and enjoy it! Several members of our family even commented on how good Becca was at wrangling our large family and keeping everything moving! Most importantly, we absolutely LOVE the photos. Becca did an insanely good job capturing the love, joy and fun of our wedding day. We will cherish these photos forever!! I would 10/10 recommend Becca to anyone in the market for a photographer!!
LAUREN & STEPHEN
We hired Becca for our wedding and she did a phenomenal job! Her photos are beautifully light, timeless, and high-quality. She made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera, and was so affirming while photographing us. Among the many reasons we loved Becca, she just radiates peace. She was attentive and encouraging to me throughout the day, and remained calm and collected whether taking photos of my huge family in the summer heat, avoiding stepping in ant hills while taking photos of our wedding party in a field, or fixing my veil for the hundredth time. We absolutely LOVE all of our engagement and wedding photos, and can't wait to share them with our kids and grandkids for generations to come!
JORDAN & HARPER
My husband and I have used Becca three times 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!
MADISON & ELLISON
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!
VALERIE & DON
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.
After years of photographing weddings and being a bride myself, I believe The Becca Rizzo Wedding Experience offers you exactly what you need to be in the moment, be yourselves, and enjoy the wedding day of your dreams! 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!
LIFESTYLE & PORTRAITS
Interested in a lifestyle, family, maternity, or other portrait session? I'd love to help! But I only take a limited amount per year so head to my Contact Form and 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 'm a beach girl at heart!)
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!!
How will I know how many hours of coverage I need?
I can help with that! Based on how many locations you have throughout the day, or how much of reception you want covered will all be determining factors in how much coverage you need. I'll put together a sample timeline for you at the very beginning of this process to help guide you in wedding planning and help you make those important decisions!
