"She somehow captures every emotion in every picture she takes.
i would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!"

I don’t think it was even possible to find someone better to share our biggest moment with than Bryana. Two years ago – I started planning a “destination” wedding in Marquette, MI and I was so anxious finding vendors from afar. I found Riutta Images, immediately emailed Bryana and we just clicked immediately – I knew she had to be our photographer. She is so responsive and helpful – and SO genuine. She offered different vendors I should look in to, which calmed my anxious heart. 
A year before our wedding we took a trip to Marquette to do wedding planning and she traveled down for our engagement photos. She made it so easy to laugh, and enjoy taking photos for hours. She was flexible – and went around town with us as we found cool spots to take photos! Before we knew it we had our photos and they were perfect!
Bryana was on the phone with me easing my nerves before the wedding. She had become so much more than a photographer and had become a friend! She captured all of the beautiful small details, the lace on my dress, my shoes, the décor, my sister helping me with lipstick. I continue to relieve our big day by looking at her photos! They are absolutely stunning – I feel a model as I look through them – they are just flawless!
Bryana just has an eye - She knew exactly where to tell us to stop for a photo, caught Nick and I in our silly moments, and just took the most beautiful photos. She was able to move our family portraits along quickly (and efficiently!!) and did above and beyond her job helping us execute a last minute sparkler send off!
This doesn’t even seem to begin to cover how truly incredible Bryana and her work is. Our wedding truly wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without her help! Whenever my husband and I need photography – even though we aren’t in the area – we will be giving her a call. I love that she is willing to travel and I can’t wait to work with her again! You will be SO HAPPY you choose to hire her!



Where do I even start...Having Bryana as my photographer was probably one of the best decisions I made for my wedding as a whole. I randomly stumbled across Riutta Images on a wedding website and loved how her photos looked...very natural/raw and didn't seem overly touched up, if that makes any sense. She was always quick in her responses, very calm, and super nice. She also really worked with me on the pricing which was fantastic- I feel that I got an amazing deal for the fantastic quality of photos that I received.

On the day of the wedding, I was so overwhelmed and stressed, I was worried that in all of my pictures I would have a scowl on my face, LOL. After looking at the pictures, you would have never guessed that I was stressed. Bryana truly knew how to capture each moment perfectly- the pictures are nothing short of amazing and she really captured every aspect of the day. I am continually getting compliments from friends and family about how amazing my wedding pictures are!

I want to emphasize how nice, calm, and down to earth Bryana is- on a day that is one of the most important, and most likely most stressful days of your life, it was very relieving to have someone with a good head on their shoulders. When I was freaking out about the little things, she was always there with a great attitude and seemingly with no worries. She truly seems like she enjoys her job, and it shows.

I would 100% recommend Riutta Images to my friends, family, and really anyone looking for a photographer...from beginning to end, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. And of course, her pictures are incredible. I am so grateful that she was able to be a part of my day!! Thank you!!!

"Bryana was AMAZING!! She was professional, fun and took wonderful pictures. Our family couldn't stop talking about what a great job she did and how much fun it was to spend the day with her. At the end of the wedding, we felt like she was a part of the family! When we got the pictures back it felt like we were reliving the whole day. She captured each detail so beautifully! I would highly recommend her for any occasion!"

Bryana captured got all "the moments"! We are so happy we chose her (we looked around and hardcore compared quality, styles, etc.)! We decided to do 9 hours vs. 6 hours, and definitely did not regret the longer service time.

Bryana was super helpful in putting together an agenda for the wedding day. We also appreciated the help directing the flow of photos and poses when this was added. There were a few instances when this would have been especially helpful (with the groomsmen).

Bryana's photography skills are spot on! We love how clear/focused the subjects are, and will cherish these prints forever. Ease of access to the files after the event was perfect - easy to view, share, and download.

"My husband and I honestly have nothing but great things to say about Bryana and the work she does! She took both our engagement and wedding photos. She is so laid back (which is such an amazing thing on your wedding day when you have so many things to worry about), and makes it so taking a lot of pictures isn't a chore or bad experience, she also makes sure to get all of the pictures you requested. The work she does is absolutely breathtaking too! She somehow captures every emotion in every picture she takes. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! Her package pricing is very reasonable too, when compared to other photographers in the area. Even though my husband and I are planning to move out of the area, we have already decided we are willing to travel to have her take the pictures for other important moments in our life together. I honestly only have great things to say about working with Bryana!"


"Bryana did an amazing job on our special day. Both she and her second shooter were personable, professional, and easy to work with. The weather did not cooperate exactly how we wanted it (it rained almost two inches on our wedding day!), but Bryana rolled with the punches with us and took the day as it came (spontaneous umbrellas included!) She is a talented photographer who makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a creative and easy-going wedding photographer, but really, she's the perfect person to document any occasion!"
