Who Am I?


My Style

My style as a wedding photographer is unobtrusive, friendly photojournalism. I capture the moments of your day as they naturally unfold.

While I take time to capture traditional posed photographs as well, I believe the most special photographs are taken when I observe and record the events of your day as they happen…the bride casually kissing the groom when no one is looking…the flower girl gazing at a single flower during the wedding reception…or the father of the bride hugging his daughter one last time before she leaves for the honeymoon.

For this reason, I have had several of my former clients give me the tongue-in-cheek title of “ninja photographer”. As one mother-of-the-bride put it, “it is perfect description for what I think is the most distinguishing characteristic of your photography.”

As a Client, You are My Top Priority

My clients will tell you that I will work as hard as anyone out there to capture your wedding and tell the story of your day the best I can. I am easy-going, yet very professional, punctual and accommodating. I care about my clients and they always come first. I believe in responding to your questions right away, communicating promptly and doing everything I can to meet your needs as a photographer.

Your job is to relax and enjoy your wedding day! My job is to document it for you to relive forever.

My Background

With a background in art, drawing and design, I fell in love with photographing weddings, events and people while serving as photographer for one of the largest community colleges in Virginia. One day a co-worker requested that I take photos at his wedding. I had never thought about myself as a wedding photographer, but decided to give it a try…and absolutely fell in love with it. Things took off from there and I started my business, Aaron Riddle Photography, shortly after and have since photographed over 150 weddings of all sizes over the entire east coast.

In 2016, I decided to add another aspect to my wedding photography packages – the authority to perform civil marriage ceremonies! I was honored to be court-appointed by Frederick County Virginia’s presiding Circuit Court Judge to legally marry couples anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

People and places I have photographed include:

  • Weddings
  • Wedding receptions
  • Family portraits
  • Senior portraits
  • Newborns and children
  • College Graduation / Commencement ceremonies
  • Private events
  • Profile shots of students and community leaders
  • College Athletics
  • Pets
  • Construction / building promotional photographs
  • Governmental officials
  • Company picnics
