I'M EVA! WIFE, MOM, PHOTOGRAPHER AND FRIEND.
I am a wife, mama to two sweet munchkins, and friend to many. And I love a good bottle of red wine. :) If you were a fly on the wall on a weekday night you’d likely see me having DMB dance parties in my living room with my five year old son and two year old daughter, all while nursing a glass of wine and cooking a semi-gourmet dinner. If I am not shooting a wedding or portraits on the weekend - you'd probably see my family and I juggling t-ball and co-ed softball game schedules, going on fishing/hiking/camping adventures, exploring local farmers markets, organizing neighborhood block parties, hosting backyard Dave Matthews Band DVD concerts, and sampling lots of whiskey, beer and wine. With an emphasis on the wine.
That's me and my little family on a recent trip for a destination wedding on Maui. Taken by Chelsea Stratso - Oahu Photographer.
Hiring a wedding photographer can be extremely overwhelming, however Eva was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. My wife and I love our engagement and wedding photos! She is very organized, communicative and and lets you know whats going on every step of the way. She's also super friendly! From day one she made us feel at ease and eliminated any stress evolved with the photography. As someone who is camera shy she made it extremely comfortable. I wouldn't recommend any other wedding photographer!
Eva is amazing!! Not only is she incredibly professional and delivers great photos (which is what it’s all about at the end of the day), but she’s also super friendly, communicative, and just a joy to work with. She was a friendly support system giving reassurance and advice where needed but was a journalistic "fly-on-the wall" when appropriate. She could both take direction and give us great advice and direction where we needed it. Eva was the most organized wedding vendor I worked with. She was very communicative, responding to all of our questions super quickly. She and her second shooter also coordinated ALL of our wedding guests into two fantastic group photos at our request – no easy feat. Most importantly, she captured such great images of our wedding day! Her turn-around time is also very fast: she sent sneak peeks right away, with a complete album just a few weeks later, which was great because everyone was super anxious to see her amazing photos. We are so happy with all the amazing images we have to help us remember this day and share with friends and family. Thanks Eva!
The best wedding planning decision you can make is to include Eva. She is patient, funny, kind, and so incredibly talented! I am super introverted and was terrified about being in front of a camera. Eva made me (and my husband) feel so comfortable and we had a great time! AND we had our photo gallery a week after the wedding! If I ever have another reason to have a photographer, Eva will be my first call.
Full transparency, Eva is one of our close friends and we knew we wanted her to capture our engagement photos as well as wedding day. That being said, even as friends, her work speaks for itself and is absolutely amazing, and working with her is beyond what we could have hoped for. She is incredibly professional, efficient, but knows how to keep people focused, while capturing the most beautiful moments throughout the day. Our friends and my family can get a little rowdy (and distracted) and she never loses her cool, and is fantastic at rearing them back for pictures. We are so thankful she was willing to work with us, and have already seen some amazing pictures highlighting our wedding day - I have yet to stop looking at them. :)
Hiring Eva was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. She is a wonderful human being and a talented photographer. Our wedding was last weekend and so the photos are mostly still in the editing process but we love the "sneak preview" photos already. Eva was so helpful on the day of the wedding. This was our family's first time planning a wedding and we were not as organized as we should have been and Eva helped to keep things running smoothly the day of the wedding. She was friendly and fun but also was able to effectively direct the wedding party members to where they needed to be to keep things running on time. I would recommend Eva 100% for anyone looking for an awesome wedding photographer. Thanks Eva!!
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH EVA WAS AMAZING!!! Well, that doesn't even begin to describe how great of an experience we had. All the work Eva put in from start to finish was above and beyond. We just keep going through those pictures and reliving our day... that is an incredible gift. Eva is so passionate and that comes through in her work. She really LISTENS to what you want and cares so much. Eva went all out and truly captured everything, things that we didn't even know happened, so that was great to be able to see. We gained a friend during this and cannot wait to work with Eva on our future family moments together.
My wedding being the first wedding that I was really part of the planning process I was overwhelmed to say the least. I couldn't be more thankful I found Eva! The photos were one of the most important parts of my wedding, and Eva knew exactly what she was doing. Looking back one of the things I appreciate most about working with her is her love for what she does. Her passion for capturing your beautiful moments is clear from the start. She thinks about all the little details that have never crossed your mind, and makes sure she delivers exactly what you want. On top of that though, she's one of the nicest people you will ever meet and a lot of fun to work with. My husband and I are pretty shy and we were worried about our engagement shoot, but she had us relaxed and even enjoying it in no time. Between the engagement shoot and the wedding day she went over ALL the details with us so she could ensure everything was just the way we wanted it and she absolutely nailed it!! Our pictures are beautiful, absolutely everything I wanted! Since our wedding my wedding party and family have all made comments about how great she was to work with and I can't think of anyone else I would want to work with for any of my future photography needs. I can't thank Eva enough for everything!
The first best wedding decision I made was marrying my groom. The second best decision was hiring Eva to do our photos. She was the most organized wedding vendor I worked with. She stayed in contact over the whole engagement period and sent out friendly reminders of important dates and things to be done. Not only was she organized, but she went way above and beyond in every aspect. When she heard our venue fell through, she got on her computer right away to send me links to other possibilities, and also gave us her recommendations for other vendors. The day of the wedding, she volunteered to help clean up a spilled drink and came running with a broom when another glass broke. I never expected a photographer to be so willing and helpful. She also gave and took direction extremely well. She looked at my Pinterest board to understand what I wanted, but also "posed" us (totally naturally) with some of her own ideas. When family members gave her feedback on something they wanted to see differently in photos, she was totally responsive and easily made the change. Even more impressively, she was able to deal with 8 wild groomsmen. Eva is the BEST of the BEST. She makes it obvious that she truly cares about her clients. If you're looking for a photographer, absolutely hire Eva right now because you can trust her to deliver gorgeous photos and a wonderful experience.
Eva is amazing! She is talented, patient, creative...not to mention she is the NICEST PERSON EVER. When I had first talked to Eva over the phone, I knew she was the photographer for us. She understood what I was looking for and definitely delivered. Our photos turned out better than we could have ever hoped! Eva captured every single moment and detail of our big day perfectly, details I hadn't even noticed :) We had SO MANY great shots from our wedding - I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough great things about this photographer. Eva won us over from the beginning with her sweet disposition, flexibility and her amazing eye for detail.
Eva was the perfect photographer for our wedding. She truly listens to what you want as a couple and was flexible with a few changing locations and timelines. Not only was working with her a delight, but our pictures are INCREDIBLE. She takes fabulous natural and candid photos and we couldn't be happier with the work she produced. She also had our pictures ready within a week which was lovely. Thank you Eva! We will be recommending her to all family and friends!
I can't thank you enough for how easy and comfortable you made it! We had kind of planned on skipping engagement pictures before we contacted you because I just didn't think we would be comfortable. It was great though, and even Josh said the experience was way better than he expected. I'm actually looking forward to the wedding picture process now, it's going to be so easy. So thank you! :)
Eva was extremely professional, fun, and made me feel comfortable! Sometimes the idea of a boudoir shoot can be intimidating and make you feel extremely vulnerable. Eva made me so comfortable, it was like I was talking to my best friend who just happened to be shooting me in sexy lingerie!
Eva is incredible! She keeps you informed every step of the way and makes you comfortable in front of the camera. She captured our day perfectly :) and our family will continue to use her for events to come!
Eva is amazingly talented and an absolute blast to work with! We adore every photo. Her use of natural light is gorgeous and she has an incredible way of capturing the most precious details. I cannot say enough good things about Eva. Looking forward to many more sessions!
Our engagement session experience with Eva Rieb photography was the best! Being a Pinterest obsessed girl, photos were really important to me and there was an added stress to have the perfect photos to compete with the ones I constantly pin. Our photos turned out Pinterest perfect! Eva listened to our crazy location and pose ideas and made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera. The session felt very natural like we were just hanging out with a friend who happened to have a camera, rather than uncomfortably posing for a stranger. She also went above and beyond in delivering a double exposure we requested and I also could not believe how quick our photos were ready...less than two weeks! We can't wait for Eva to be a part of our wedding day because we know she is going to capture the most beautiful shots for us to cherish forever!
Eva took my daughter's senior pictures and from start to finish it was a wonderful experience! Eva helped us pick the perfect location for the session. The session itself was so much fun for both my daughter and me! The pictures turned out beautiful, I don't know how we will pick just a few - they are fantastic! Eva was very quick to respond whenever I contacted her. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer for their special life events!
I had such a positive experience with my session. Eva was friendly and responsive before I even met her, and I felt immediately comfortable with her as soon as I arrived for our boudoir session at the hotel. There were snacks, drinks, and music! She was well-organized, very friendly, and made me feel comfortable and beautiful even having just met her and being in such an intimate setting. I appreciated her personality and skill that made the session fun and allowed for the best possible end product. The editing she included in the final pictures was incredibly flattering but didn't make me look fake or airbrushed over.
Thank you SO much - I just took a look through the gallery and they are incredible! I have never been someone who loves to look at photos of myself, but you did such a beautiful job finding the most complementary angles, lighting, etc. that I am going to have a hard time narrowing down which ones make it to the book! (And my fear was not having enough for a book!
Eva is such an incredible photographer and instantly makes you feel like a great friend that you have known for years. On the prowl for a wedding photographer, a good friend suggested I email Eva, who was just starting her career and had yet to do a wedding. I took one look at her website and portfolio and knew right away that she was someone special, who could capture beautiful images. I sent her an email and asked if she would consider doing my wedding. Eva responded promptly. She was so kind and even humbled by my request that we quickly bonded over wedding planning and what my husband and I were like as a couple. At the end of our email chain she suggested that if we were unsatisfied with our engagement photos (that she drove to Alpental from Seattle in the winter to take!) that there was no pressure to work with her for the wedding (in August on Whidbey Island). We were and will continue to be more than satisfied with Eva's final product.
It was AMAZING! Eva picked a really urban chic studio to shoot which totally set the tone for my boudoir session. She also brought some Processco and a very calming energy to what could have been an awkward experience. Eva does a wonderful job relating to her client and making them feel incredibly beautiful and special. She was open to my ideas but also had many of her own. I walked away from my hour session feeling giddy with excitement and confident that I would be obsessed with the final photos. Eva and her work does NOT disappoint!!
