Stylish Story Telling with Raw Emotion

Get to know Viera Photographics

We are a full service photography company with over 30 years of collective experience.  We have photographed everything from weddings to family portraits, corporate headshots, musicians, newborns, chocolate waterfalls and toilet paper (all true stories).

We have climbed trees, hiked through snow, been attacked by killer red ants, hung out of the back of car (almost crashed said car), and been chased out of the water by sharks... all while taking pictures.

We photograph a lot of things... but we are best at telling stories.

Love Notes

Katrin and Gordon

We hired Viera Photographics for our August 2012 wedding weekend in Napa. Given that we live on the east coast we actually never had the pleasure of meeting them until our rehearsal dinner and what a pleasure it was. They captured our entire weekend with a skill and expertise that is unparallelled. What really amazed me and my husband was that here are these amazing professionals… and they couldn’t be more down to earth. Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera, and they immediately put us at ease. We got on like old friends and that’s where I think Viera Photographics set themselves above the rest. We all made each other laugh, and that is where our favorite wedding photos come from. Anyone can get the shots of the ceremony or a first dance but it takes a true professional to get the candid almost secret moments of a wedding that make it the most special day. Our favorite photos aren’t the ones that are posed or of the whole party but the moments that they captured while we didn’t know they were taking pictures. They were the consummate professionals while being the perfect observers as well as friends on such an important day.

We could not feel luckier to have worked with Viera Photographics. The Viera crew are responsive, fun, and incredibly kind; we felt like old friends from the moment we met. They captured the story and emotion of our wedding day with a truly artistic eye, and delivered photos so brilliant in clarity and rich in color we are beside ourselves with joy. The quality of their work surpasses any other we’ve seen, and we cannot recommend them more highly!

Yolanda and Brant

My wife and I looked into many photographers in preparation of our wedding. At the top of the list was Viera Photographics. Their emphasis on artistry and candidness immediately attracted us to their style and we were not disappointed one bit. They used a variety of films and cameras and were with us every step of the way. We never needed to worry about them and they actually made the event more fun! Now we’ve got so many great pictures of us and our friends and family. Viera captured the event perfectly. If we had to do it all over again, we would not hesitate to call them.

We began with an awesome and intimate engagement photoshoot at our house with Dennis and Jaime. We had a great time and the photos were personal and just what we wanted. Our wedding, of course was no different. The whole team captured our entire wedding weekend beautifully– from the details to the emotions in our loved ones faces. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding lives on in our gorgeous photos…

Anne-Marie and Jay

We had a lot of positive feedback from our wedding, but especially on our wedding photos. Everyone loves them, especially me. Viera Photographics was the first vendor we chose (after our location -Fort Adams in Newport) and they were 100% the right decision.

The photos… Beautiful, nicely composed, flattering, well lit/exposed, glamorous, whimsical…. basically everything you would want. These are the photos I want shown at my funeral. Too much? How about at my 75th wedding anniversary?

The service: Good coverage of the events and guests. They were willing to work with our requests for certain types of photos without any problems. We wanted digital and film, they did digital and film for us.

The experience… The whole team was professional and friendly to work with throughout the entire process. When my entire wedding party and guest list got stuck in traffic, I had no idea the ceremony was running late because I was having so much fun playing with the photographers. Best wedding ever.

Maren and Chris

The Vieras made our wedding day so special! They immediately fit right in like our new best friends from the minute that they arrived on site and kept us laughing all evening long.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments we’ve received on our wedding photos- they managed to capture many a moment that have since made it in to tons of Christmas cards, mantles, and photo albums!

They kept us at ease and managed to get a great blend of staged wedding party photos (for the parents) and candid moments like our best friends getting down on the dance floor.  I don’t consider myself terribly photogenic, but they made my husband and I look like royalty!  Being a designer, they even went out of their way to photograph the invitations that I created after the wedding was over.  They got all of the little details as well as the big moments, and we couldn’t be happier! We just wish we got more time with them, as they are they type of new friends you can’t wait to see again!

Brie and Brian

Brian, Dennis, and Jaime: Thank you so much for the incredible photographs! Your work surpassed all of our expectations. We can’t tell you how much we appreciated your professionalism and adaptability the day of. You are just incredible; you did a perfect job of capture the best day of our lives on film.

Erica and Greg

On our wedding day we were so lucky to say we had our friends there to capture each and every special moment of the day. That’s who Dennis and Jaime became for us… honest, caring and really talented friends. They work so seamlessly with one another and truly made our wedding day one that I will always be able to remember. I absolutely cherish their exquisite work. If I’m having a rough day or just need a pick me up I can always count on thumbing through my wedding album and instantly I’m taken back to that moment in time. I don’t know how they do it but they were able to catch the small moments, the ones that count the most and captured in the most beautiful way. I will forever be grateful for what they were able to give me and my husband. Thank you guys for all the passion and love you put into your work, the results show that you both are true artists and masters of what you do.

Lan and Alvin

When I look through our photos, I am instantly transported back in time. The emotions on ours and our family’s and friends’ faces will always invoke those same feelings I had on our wedding day…and I am forever grateful for these mementos. The pictures are classic and timeless…we will treasure them for the rest of our lives.  In fact, I’m pretty sure we want the Vieras to continue capturing these moments for the rest of our lives…
