Read what my clients have to say about my photography services:

Murphy“Aaron Riddle is the best when it comes to professional photography! He photographed our engagement pictures and our wedding and reception and we could not be happier with the results. Aaron is an expert in providing crisp, clean, colorful pictures which showcase the beauty of your event. He is a pleasure to work with and provided excellent customer service throughout our time working together. He got our pictures back to us for both events in a matter of days and we were blown away by the quality of his work. He captured every moment of our wedding, especially the fun candid moments of our bridal party, our guests, and ourselves. All of our friends and family have raved about how wonderful our photos look and we completely agree! Aaron helped us to be able to remember the fun of our special day for a lifetime. Amazing quality. Highly recommended.” Sarah Williams

 

Murphy“I’ve been in and attended multiple weddings Aaron has photographed. That’s why I knew the day we got engaged that he was the only photographer I trusted to capture our big day. I was almost willing to set our date around his availability! Aaron took our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t love them more. He is super easy to work with, very organized, professional, and incredibly quick in delivering the final package to you. All of this while being a great friendly guy. I would absolutely recommend anyone to use him because you will not be disappointed!” Allie Fauber

 

Murphy“Aaron Riddle was an absolute pleasure to work with. We first got to know him during our engagement shoot and he was a blast. My groom isn’t really into getting his picture taken, but Aaron managed to bring out his fun side and he ended up enjoying the shoot. We laughed the entire time and Aaron can vouch for that! Aaron was incredibly accommodating and thorough without taking too much time. He was so fast! I was so impressed that he had our pictures ready just a few days later. From our engagement shoot to the days leading up to our wedding, Aaron was always very responsive and attentive to any questions I had. At our wedding ceremony and reception, we hardly realized he was there. He took some really great photos that we will always treasure. Best part? He is so reasonable!!! I highly recommend Aaron Riddle to anyone looking for an extremely professional and equally enjoyable photographer. His pictures are incredible and he is quick to deliver them. He is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him again!” Cristina Murphy

 

Corey and Randi Wielert“Aaron Riddle is a true professional. He was by far the best vendor we used for our wedding. We used him from both our engagement photos and wedding photos and continue to get overwhelming compliments from people who have viewed his work. He is very organized and communicates clearly every step of the process leading up to the big day, as well as, executes seamlessly the day of. We get to re-live our big day every time we look through the photos and are SO thankful for everything that he caught on film! He is a great guy and an extremely talented photographer and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer for their big day!” Corey and Randi Wielert

 

Lofgren“Aaron was a pleasure to work with and our photographs are beautiful. The groom was very set on getting digital copies of all the photos with full rights, which we did. If you look at Aaron’s website or Facebook page, you will get an idea of his style, which suited our wedding beautifully. For the posed pictures, he found the proper balance between telling us what to do to look good and letting us be us. At least twice, he anticipated shots my bridesmaids were about to ask for. Once we were at the reception, I basically didn’t notice him, which was just want I wanted.” Mike and Shayna Ignaszewski

 

Ignaszewski“We loved working with Aaron and can now see why he was a preferred vendor for our venue. He is very easy to work with and super easy going, but can still keep your bridal party in line for pictures when they are getting distracted by the bar. He really listens to what you want and puts his own creative spin on things. Thank you, Aaron!” Mike and Shayna Ignaszewski

 

Comunale“I would say Aaron is very professional but at the same time very relatable. He really visualizes great pictures and finds unique places to photograph. He makes the whole wedding photography process very painless. He is literally the one vendor I wasn’t stressed about throughout the wedding process. It was a breath of fresh air working with him.” Fred and Jodi Comunale

 

McVicker“Aaron….we are so thrilled with the photos and how quick you allowed us to view them! You truly are talented! You are like a sneaky snake when you are on the job….not a bother at all, quick to capture and very professional. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of a photographer to keep our memories in mind and in print for a lifetime.” James and Melissa McVicker

 

Jeff and Kathleen Shiffman“Aaron is an artist through and through. His photos all turned out amazing, in large part to his great editing capabilities. Throughout the entire process he was thorough and thoughtful, very responsive. You’ll be in great hands. Some of the best wedding photos I’ve seen and he is a steal at his price point.” Jeffrey and Kathleen Shiffman

 

Matt and Leah OConnell“Aaron was so willing and accommodating with all of our requests and ideas for both the engagement and wedding which made the whole experience stress-free. He was inconspicuous throughout the whole ceremony and reception which was so important to me. Looking at the photographs, I remember talking to certain people and other specific moments and had no idea he was standing right there taking a picture! I also appreciated how timely and organized Aaron was throughout the whole experience. On the wedding day, I never felt rushed or worried about being late to the reception or missing key photos, I completely trusted his instinct and I’m so glad I did! He captured the energy and glow of the night perfectly and we could not be happier with the results! Having Aaron as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made with the whole planning process and now we have beautiful, lasting photographs to cherish and relive all the special details and that night. We couldn’t be happier!” Leah O’Connell

 

Chris and Jaely Turner“Aaron photographed both our wedding and engagement pictures. In addition to his beautiful photography, his demeanor on the job is extremely professional and wonderful to work with. He was fun and laid back at our engagement shoot, and it was nice to have the opportunity to get to know our wedding photographer before the event. He was able to capture all the emotions, details, and moments of our wedding day without interrupting anything that was going on. He was pleasant and fun for the formal shots, and very stealthy in capturing the candids. I would recommend him to anyone for both wedding and engagement photography!” Chris and Jaely Turner

 

David and Angie Hardt“My husband hates to take pictures. He never likes any with himself in them. Aaron did a wonderful job making him feel comfortable and he was pleased with our pictures. I keep looking back at them and always think how glad I am we chose Aaron!” Angie Hardt

 

Matt and Lindsay Coursen“Aaron shows passion about photography from his first interaction with you all the way through your event. If you want a photographer that connects with you, is personable, genuine, and who’s main focus is to capture your wedding the way you envision, Aaron will be perfect for you. He is very thorough, friendly, energetic, incredibly efficient with his wedding package, and a true pleasure to work with. A++++!” Matt and Lindsay Coursen

 

Jay and Emily Barnes“Aaron, thank you so much providing such wonderful services and such memorable photos to last for years to come.

Let us know if there is ever anything we can do in return for you.” Jay and Emily Barnes

 

Darren and Tonya Hadro“Aaron is a very gentle, patient and thorough photographer. He is passionate about his work and takes great care in every picture.

Julie Quackenbush King“Our pictures are beautiful!!! The photographer was the most important element for us because pictures are what we will have for the rest of our lives to remember our wedding day by and we are so happy we chose Aaron to do the job! He was quick to respond to our questions during the planning process and open to our ideas.

We will continue to choose Aaron to capture more milestones in our future. THANK YOU SO MUCH AARON!!!” Julie Quackenbush King

 

Stephanie Ward Tutwiler“Aaron is a professional and talented photographer. He wont nickel and dime you with hidden extras or costs like some other photographers do. He was able to capture amazing candid photos as well as posed shots and if I had to do my wedding all over again I would pick him again as the photographer. Working with him was a pleasant experience and was incredibly easy- probably the smoothest aspect of our wedding!” Stephanie Ward Tutwiler

 

Stephanie Dove“Not only was Aaron extremely professional and quality of work was amazing but he was quick in sending all the photos. Not long after the wedding we had three preview photos and shortly we received all the photos in the mail. I have had so many friends and family comment on not only how gorgeous the photos are but how they were the quickest wedding photos ever received. We would 100% hire Aaron again with not a second thought.” Stephanie Dove

 

Tammy Yoder“You will not find anyone more professional, talented, reliable, and reasonable the Aaron. He did a great job of responding to us quickly, answering all of our questions, having great ideas for different shots with the engagement session, being on time for all sessions, and was wonderful at the wedding. During the ceremony, we hardly even knew that Aaron was there. He was so great at taking wonderful shots quietly without any distracting flashes, etc. He is truely GREAT at what he does.” Tammy Yoder

 

Sarah Sutton“Aaron is a top notch professional first and foremost. He doesn’t overcharge AND he arrives right when he says he will! He is marvelous to work with – kind and quiet and very good at what he does. He has ideas about shots, but also is completely open to his client’s ideas as well. He ALWAY answers e-mails and voicemails, and he’s ALWAYS willing to do absolutely anything he can to help you in any way. He even answered all of my non-photography related questions like should I trust this venue or this vendor etc.? I can’t possible stress enough how comforting it is to have someone like Aaron who you trust to be in complete communication with you before, during, and after your event. In us, he has earned clients for life.” LaMar and Sarah Sutton

I would certainly recommend you to everyone, and would use your services again! Your pricing is more than reasonable and I feel we got above and beyond what we even hoped for. Thank you for being a part of our special day and for capturing every single moment!” Shelley Hutchinson Mauck

Katie Bennett Sampson“When planning my wedding I knew there wouldn’t be a huge amount of time for pictures after the ceremony and before the reception. However, Aaron did amazing at staying within the time constraints that we had and the pictures turned out to be fantastic! If I wanted a particular style of picture or wanted to make sure certain people were in the picture, Aaron made sure to do so and was always open to suggestions. All I had to do was give Aaron a location and he was able to use what was there, such as a gazebo or willow tree, and turn it into beautiful, breathtaking photos which are now hanging on my wall!” Katie Bennett Sampson

 

Woelper Family“These were our first professional portraits as a family of 3 and we really wanted something special, not just going to a studio to sit in front of a fake backdrop. Berkeley Springs is a special place for us and we absolutely loved that Aaron was willing to meet us there and give us real, quality pictures of us being us. They are great and we couldn’t be happier! We can’t wait for our next session!” Jason and Colleen Woelper

 

Miriam Sincell Burton“We were very impressed with Aaron’s professional and kind nature. He was wonderful to work with during our wedding and the pictures!

He’s definitely a skilled photographer whom I will recommend to all my loved ones. Thanks so much, Aaron!!!” Miriam Sincell Burton

Bridget Cole“Aaron’s work speaks for itself. He is super artistic and extremely knowledable about the elements of photgraphaphy. My wedding photos are a show-stopper. All of my friends and family are astounded by how gorgeous they are. I couldn’t be happier with the result. He is so professional and every component of his packages are top rate. He provided us with a CD of our images and included a custom case that is beautiful. He does not need instruction and knows how to jump in capture the magic of the moment. However, he also is more than happy to take instruction (especailly from mother’s–ha!) and his main objection was to please the customer. He was so pleasant to work with. I cannot say enough about how happy we are witht he final product. He did a fantastic job and i would whole-heartedly reccommend him to anyone that I know.” Bridget Bunner Cole

 

Lisa Mayer“Aaron was very professional, and he took beautiful engagement and wedding photos for us. We did not have to wait long at all to receive our photos.

We were very impressed with the job he did all around and we are grateful that he was our photographer!” Lisa Hadro Mayer

Nichole Hazelwood“I am very pleased with the way Aaron worked with my boys. He was so patient and made it a very fun photo session for them. Normally I would be stressed out trying to get them to smile but he was able to get all of these awesome photos and keep all of us happy at the same time. He was fantastic about letting me know when and what was happening with my pictures. He also works very hard to get everything to you as quickly as possible. I am so impressed I will be contacting Aaron for future family portraits and will never go to the photo studios at department stores again.” Nichole Hazelwood

 

Paul and Natasha Savery“Aaron is a very patient and thorough photographer. He listens to what you are looking for and adds a creative touch to the photos.

I spent lots of time on the internet comparing photographers in the Winchester area and I have to say it was worth every minute of every hour of my time in choosing Aaron as our photographer. Aaron was very easy going and showed lots of patience with the children. He took lots and lots of pictures with a camera on each shoulder. He had the ability to find the right shots at the right time. He was very prompt in arriving for the wedding as well as in responding to all emails which were always full of questions.” Connie Moore

Aaron CollegemanAaron was professional, kind, and even a bit adventurous on our photo shoot. My wife and I had never had professional photographs taken, so we didn’t really know what to expect. But rather than subjecting us to a stiff set of poses, Aaron simply invited us to act naturally. At one point we even had him down on the floor with us, crawling around with our tiny baby daughter. So, thank you Aaron, and keep up the good work.” Aaron Collegeman
