Founder Rob Rivera has been captivated by photography since getting a taste for composition and the development of 35mm film early on. Since 2009, he has worked tirelessly at his passion and has advanced his knowledge and apparatus, granting him the opportunity to capture moments he once could only envision.
Rob Rivera Photography has expanded its reach, and now primarily serves New York City, Philadelphia, and Central New York, including Syracuse. Additionally, we cater weddings throughout the United States and internationally, to include destination weddings.
