My name is Riley Starr and I am a natural light photographer based out of Orange County, California. On most days you can find me snappin’ photos at the beach down the street from little home in Laguna Beach, doing yoga, eating a kale salad or unplugging to spend some quality time with my people. My photography is most known for bright and airy lighting and my love for blue and neutral tones. I am attracted to a very clean yet boho and organic aesthetic. I’m most inspired by shooting in venues with white interiors and tons of natural light, by the ocean, in the mountains and surrounded by miles of pristine desert landscape.
I hold this shoot near and dear to my heart. This was my first ever styled shoot and I wanted to combine the three loves of my life: photography, the beach and weddings. When I started planning this shoot I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I spent countless hour pulling together inspiration, picking out the perfect wedding dresses, building set pieces (shout out to my AMAZING boyfriend who knows how to build things!!), designing all the florals( I also own a floral company with one of my best friends), coordinating models, hair stylist/makeup artist, location, permits, and timing. I learned so many important lessons during this crazy process and it turned out more amazing than I could have ever imagined!
