I believe in making photographs that are not only beautifully nostalgic, but works of art.

Photographs that withstand the test of time.

I believe in creating a series of photographs for every one of my clients that will make them relive their wedding day and the rush of emotion that came with their wedding day every time they look at them. 

Whether it be a portrait, senior or lifestyle session, I believe in taking photos of you that reflect who you truly are and make you feel the best way possible about yourself.

“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.”
— Eve Arnold


HOW DID I GET HERE?

From a very young age I knew I wasn't meant to be stuck inside a cubicle or at a corporate office. I knew I wanted to live life by my own rules and do so unapologetically. I grew up with a strong love for anything art related having picked up all sorts of different creative mediums. Including playing music, graphic design and of course, photography.

During my early highschool years I began working as a freelance graphic designer and shot photos for some of the projects I would work on. The more I worked with photography, the more I realized that this was what I really wanted to do. Halfway through my senior year I decided to cut out design from my business.

What started off as something I did on the side quickly snowballed into so much more and thus Roy Rivas Photography was born. I went on to study photography at Boston University's Center of Digital Imaging Arts. Fast forward a few years and here we are. Safe to say 13-year old Roy would be proud of where I am today.

I'M SO STOKED AND BEYOND GRATEFUL TO LIVE THE LIFE I LIFE AND BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I LOVE FOR A LIVING.

Photography to me is a lot more than just a job. It has become something that shapes my day to day life. Photography has allowed me to consistently do three things that I am extremely passionate about: experience new places, meet genuine people and live life by my own rules.
