About Us

Our Backstory

Brittany and Dennis are the founders and principle photographers/videographers here at Rivas Images. Between the two of them they handle the sales, marketing, project management, shooting, editing, and fulfillment. They initially started Rivas Images as a way to pivot out of the food and beverage industry where they had spent over a decade bartending, serving, and running banquet operations. 

There are a few others that work for us behind the scenes, and ultimately our dream is to grow big enough to train and employ other photographers and videographers from around the area.

Seasoned Wedding Professionals

Between The Boatyard, Edgewater Beach Resort, Boardwalk Beach Resort, Spinnaker, They Royal Palm Grille, and The St. Joe Company, Brittany and Dennis spent over a decade in the food and beverage industry here along the emerald coast. During their time they worked countless weddings and event and got to know first-hand, the ins-and-outs.

This really gives them an upper hand when it comes to shooting weddings because they are able to anticipate what’s happening next and are able to stay calm and focused, even in the busiest of environments. 

Event & Lifestyle Photographers

Most wedding photographers are either predominantly event photographers or lifestyle photographers and this leads to a lot of client-side issues and confusion.

Brittany and Dennis’ background in the banquet industry coupled with Brittany’s passion for lifestyle photography allows us to thrive as both event and lifestyle photographers, enabling them to capture candid, emotive moments in a photojournalistic/documentarian style during the ceremony and reception, while also allowing us to capture pure, authentic portraits when the time is right. 

Partners in life and business

Brittany and Dennis have been dating since 2012 and have spent the entire time bartending and serving side by side with in several restaurants between between Destin and Panama City Beach, FL. They have a daughter and an iguana together.
