Preserving your Memories

Portland, OR Film Photographer 

what we are all about

THE GOAL is straightforward. We're here to help you FALL IN LOVE with the MEMORIES of your WEDDING DAY.

You’re all about finding the (safer) thrills in life—the weekend hikes and stamps on your passport prove that—but your wedding day isn’t just about your grand plans for a great time, it’s about the tiniest ones. The plan for portraits in a secluded corner of your venue. The candid snapshots of your closest friends and family. The way you feel that day—when all it takes is a moment of eye contact with your mom or dad to start the waterworks. These are the moments you’re swapping for a weekend of your usual fun, so let’s make them last forever.

Hello there.
I'm Rithy.

Professional Film Photographer, hopeless romantic, minor obsession with coffee, mother of 2 kiddos and married to the love of my life.

I've been blessed to have a backstage pass to some seriously incredible moments. Like an exclusive pass to document the special experiences between the inner circle of family and friends. I find boundless inspiration when couples opt for an intentional, candid approach to their wedding photos. The rich tapestry of human connection, the infectious joy, and the tender intimacy act as my solid foundation. It’s not just about the photos, and it’s not just about hiring a wedding photographer—it’s about finding the right person to frame these moments with care. This journey of capturing your love story is not just humbling; it's a joyous adventure that keeps me endlessly inspired.

my favorite part of my job? the look on your faceS when you see each other as soon to be partners for life.

Why Film

Creating timeless memories that evoke emotion means having a tool that will flawlessly provide these images. Film photography holds a special place in my heart because in this digital age where every moment can be instantly shared and forgotten, film photography offers a nostalgic and enduring way to preserve your most cherished memories, and this is something I don't take lightly. Film allows us to slow down and demands mindfulness. Each click of the shutter becomes a deliberate act, forcing us to truly be present in the moment. So why film? Because film photography captures the essence of a moment, transforming it into a physical artifact that can be cherished, shared, and passed down through generations. It is an art form that weaves together nostalgia, creativity, and human connection, reminding us of the beauty of the past while helping us create memories that will stand the test of time.

FAQs

How do I find out if you are available for my wedding date?

You can complete this form and I’ll get back to you within 48-hours with my availability.

Can I see your pricing?

Of course! Most of my couples invest between $6500-$10,000 but I would love to put together an initial quote for you. Simply reach out and I’ll reply.

What does it mean to have a photography assistant or second shooter?

There is a lot happening at a wedding and it can be difficult for one photographer to capture all the important moments on their own and keep things moving as they should. I don’t ever want you to feel stressed or that you don’t have my full attention, so I have a photography assistant with me at every wedding. They help me stay focused on you. For some weddings, I bring a second shooter. This allows us to be in two places at once and ensures we never miss a moment.

Do you only shoot on film?

Over the years, I have transitioned from being a digital photographer to a hybrid film photographer—it’s just so sexy! Film allows both me and my couples to be in the moment, which comes as close to slowing down time as possible. I always have back-ups and do bring a DSLR (digital camera) with me to every wedding. This ensures we'll have a perfect balance of film and digital images. 

What is the process to book you?

It’s easy and fun! I like to start with a call so we can meet, and from there, I customize a proposal for you. We do the professional parts of running a business (contracts and deposits), after that is the fun and creative stuff!  

Are engagement photos included in your wedding packages?

Engagement sessions are such a nice way to get to know your photographer and their shooting style, but not everyone wants one. However, You can certainly add one to any of your custom collection. 


A Great Time Deserves To Stand The Test Of It

From the celebration of your marriage to how you grow together and everything in between, you’re planning on a full life of love and experiences. It would be my honor to capture these memories so you can do more than just remember them—you can relive them.
