Growing up, I had an interest in creative writing. I wasn't much of an artist. As hard as I'd try, I wasn't great at drawing or painting. But I could put a pen to paper and describe something in vivid detail. I enjoyed writing private memoirs of getting gas at the gas station, or describing in length the way the lady at the grocery store rang out the customer in front of me; All seemingly mundane interactions that I found so genuine and fascinating. As I got older, I realized what I was really drawn to wasn't the writing, but the observation of moments unfolding in front of me. When I finally picked up a camera, I found a way to be an observer of the moments that make our time on this planet worth it - the life changing moments, the deliciously mundane moments, and everything in between. There's nothing else in the world that I'd rather do.

David is my husband. It's only natural that I marry a man so creative and determined. He has spent basically his entire life playing music. He was a music teacher for over 20 years, and we met when I started working at the guitar shop where he managed the store and taught music lessons (best. day. ever.). Once I started Roni Rose Photography, it didn't take long for him to join the team. Creatively we've always connected, and we absolutely share a brain - David says, "we harmonize well together".
The wedding world has become a place for personal expression rather than a traditional template that needs to be followed. In fact, David and I got married at White Castle. (Definitely ask me about that if I haven't told you already). You aren't run of the mill. And neither are we. We are incredibly inspired by early explorations of Surrealist photography, and we try to channel that artistic expression of mood and feeling into our work. We specialize in emotion based, story telling photography. We're interested in the real, the raw, the strong, and the soulful. Our goal is to showcase who you are, as a couple, as a family, and as individuals, while also creating a piece of interesting artwork. You're epic. Your photos should be too. Be different. Be real.
