Roni Rose Photography

We are not for everyone. This is no secret. We live in a world where appearances are valued more than truth; A world full of Snapchat filters that make your face look slender, and endless articles telling you how to hold your arms to make yourself look skinnier in a photo; Where somethings' worth is dictated by how many likes it gets.

At Roni Rose Photography, we believe in feeling over dishonesty. We value the importance of being vulnerable with another person and sharing your true insides. Honest interactions are what make this life worth living. David and I know how uncomfortable it can feel in front of the camera — that feeling of "Where do I look? What do I do?" We aren't waiting for you to do something. We want you to be.

We don't believe that a pale complexion, or a face without a smile ruins a photograph. Like real life, real emotion isn't always pretty. Throw away your insecurities, be with your partner, and we'll show you how you fit together. Give us your ugly crying face and we will show you tears of joy. We don't believe you have a "good side," because we don't believe you have a "bad side." If you're looking for someone to capture genuine, uninfluenced feeling, we might be what you're looking for. At Roni Rose Photography, we sell honesty. We'll bring the eye. You bring the heart.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

First things first, David and I both despise having our photo taken. We know how uncomfortable it can be in front of the camera. That's one of the reasons that we do very little posing. Rather than faking it, we'd rather see you move, breath, laugh and cry. Rather than tell you what to do, we'd rather see you be.

One of the greatest compliments we've ever received is that we seem to be the antithesis of the wedding industry. If you'd like to learn more about how we operate on a wedding day, contact us to set up a consult.
