Frequently Asked Questions


1. Where are you based and do you travel?

I live in this magical place called the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I’m pretty much obsessed with my home town, but oh, do I love to travel! No matter where you need something photographed, I’m your girl. Just give me the details and we will figure it all out. 

2. What are you rates?

Weddings start at $3,000
Elopements start at $1500
Family & Portrait sessions start at $400

Every session or event is priced a bit differently depending on the location, time of year, and more. So to get the most accurate rate just head over to the contact page! 

3. How do we receive our photos? 

I use this lovely online gallery site called SmugMug. Once your photos are done you will receive a link to an online gallery where you can download and/or print straight from. 

4. When will we receive our photos? 

Weddings will take no longer than 8 weeks. 
Engagement & family sessions will take no longer than 3 weeks. 

5. Can we post our photos on social media? 

Can you? Please, please do! Share those babies everywhere you can. All I ask is for you to give correct photo credit. A simple “photo by: Riutta Images” would suffice! Tagging my actual social media will get you extra brownie points.

6. How long have you been doing this? 

I started my business during the summer of 2011! So, “professionally” I have been doing it for about 7 years! 
I have photographed over 60 weddings and I couldn’t tell you how many family + portrait sessions.
