My name is Aaron Riddle and I am a professional wedding photographer serving Winchester, VA 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.

Nature Photography – Bumble Bee at Blandy Experimental Farm


I was at Blandy Farms in Boyce, VA for a recent engagement session. I got there early and while waiting, noticed a bumble bee flying around from flower to flower doing his bumble bee thing. So I took his picture.

Animal Photography – Sniffers the Holland Lop in the Evening


I had a break / vacation from wedding photography for the past couple of weeks, so I broke out the camera and took some photographs of an adorable bunny.

Wedding Photography – Will and Alyssa in Sharpsburg, MD


Location and Date: Ceremony: Holy Family Catholic Community Church (Middletown, MD) | Reception: Family Farm (Sharpsburg, MD)

The Details: I will remember Will and Alyssa’s wedding for quite a few things. First they both had one of the most moving “first looks” I have had the pleasure to photograph (you can see their genuine happiness in the photos as they first set eyes on each other the day of their wedding). Second, their reception was full of not only the traditional fun events (dancing, toasts) but a mixture of many fun games and activities (giant wooden life-size Jenga anyone?). Finally, in one of the more touching moments I have seen at a wedding, Alyssa’s father serenaded her with a lullaby from when she was an infant that he wrote…and had everyone join in for the final verse.

Wedding Photography – Dane and Lawren’s Adventure Time and Pokemon Wedding


Location and Date: Ostertag Vistas, Myersville, MD | June 2015

The Details: Where to begin? I first met Lawren as bridesmaid at Chris and Jaely’s super awesome wedding back in June of 2012. So when she contacted me to photograph her wedding I was super excited as I know it would be another fun group to work with. Well the word “fun” does not do them justice. This wedding was just awesome. Why? Let me list the ways: Adventure Time and Pokemon theme, stunning scenery at the Ostertag Vistas, a laugh-out loud fun wedding party with a zany sense of humor, nice summer time weather…I could go on and on and on.

Landscape Photography – Sunrise at the Nags Head Fishing Pier


My family and I took a quick get-away down to Nags Head, NC this summer for some relaxing time at the beach. While out exercising on the beach one early morning, I saw the sun come up and it was glorious. I made note of the time and returned to the same spot the next morning with camera in hand.

Wedding Photography – Bobby and Sara in Stephens City, VA


Location and Date: Ceremony – Macedonia United Methodist Church | Reception – Bowling Green Country Club | June 2015

The Details: Bobby and Sara LOVE the Boston Celtics (as evident in their engagement session). So naturally their wedding was full of tints and hues of Celtic green wherever you looked…including shamrock glow sticks once the sun had set on the dance floor. They are also the first couple to take a ride from their ceremony site to the reception venue by way of trolley! It was my pleasure to spend the day with this fun couple and wedding party.

Wedding Photography – Joel and Sarah at Bright Box Theatre


Location and Date: Ceremony – Museum of the Shenandoah Valley | Reception – Bright Box Theater

The Details: Sarah is a long-time co-worker of mine so I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her and Joel’s wedding in downtown Winchester (see their engagement session we also did in Winchester). The ceremony they had at the “you-can’t-go-wrong-no-matter-where-you-take-a-photo” venue of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. Then it was over to the Bright Box Theater located on the historic walking mall of Winchester, VA for some good food, lively dancing and a fun night had by all!

“We are so very thrilled with how our pictures turned out! They are all all amazing. Thank you for all of your work on these, we are beyond happy with them.” – Joel and Sarah

Wedding Photography – James and Lisa in Chantilly, Virginia


Location and Date: Ceremony – St. Timothy Catholic Church, Chantilly, VA | Reception – Westfields Marriott, Chantilly, VA

The Details: I have done plenty of weddings featuring men in uniform, but this was my first featuring a groom and his groomsmen in kilts! Mix that in with a great easy-going beautiful bride and an awesome wedding party and it made my day’s worth of work easy. From the stunning stained glass window backdrops of St. Timothy’s to the Batman and Wonder Woman cake topper, along with great family, friends and a talented DJ dynamic duo…this wedding was unforgettable!
