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.

Make yourself at home and view my work, get in touch with me or read my blog below.

Cacapon State Park Wedding Photography – Tim and Caitlin’s Wedding


Location and Date: Cacapon State Park, Berkeley Springs WV | August 2015

The Details: Tim and Caitlin’s wedding (see their engagement session) was the first ever Monday wedding I had the opportunity to photograph. Why did they hold it on a Monday you ask? Well, for starters their wedding was a small intimate affair…only for family and close friends. Aside from the catering staff and the baker of the cake, I was the only other vendor there. That made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that they trusted me to document their lifetime event. The photos that follow are just a glimpse into their special day…

Nature Photography – Grasshopper in the Dry Summer


It has been dry as a bone out which usually means tons of grasshoppers. I was waiting by a column outside during a photo session and this guy hopped up right next to me. Now he is immortalized on my blog.

Wedding Photography at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club – Stephen and Laura


Location and Date: August 2015 | Shenandoah Valley Golf Club, Front Royal, VA

The Details: Every once in a while I have a wedding that I refer to as “perfect”. Now all the weddings I do are always fun and enjoyable…but for it to be a “perfect wedding”, everything must go right for me as the photographer. This means stellar weather, a great venue with great scenery, fantastic lighting and spots to take photographs at, plenty of guests on the dance floor, and on and on. It is not often I give out the “perfect” designation to a wedding…but Stephen and Laura’s wedding (see their engagement session) deserves that award in my book. Have a look through the photos and see for yourself…

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.
