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

Ashley and Willy

When we were planning our wedding, finding the right photographer was at the top of my list; above finding the right dress and a close second to finding the right husband. I kid. It was a very close second. I had a clear idea of what I wanted captured from our wedding; the moments in between, the raw emotion, the unposed. What I got, was much much more. Dennis and Hardy did a fantastic job of setting up natural moments and of remaining a part of the scene without dominating the scene. I never felt rushed, posed, or stressed; along with his camera he brought a zen-like aura that calmed our nerves and allowed us to relax and be fully present in our special day. What I love most is that while there are plenty of photos of us during our ceremony, I don’t remember having one memory of him being there; I have no recollection of hearing the clicking of a camera. What I do remember is getting lost in my husband’s eyes, my ears hanging on every word that came out of his mouth during the vows he read to me. And yet, I have several beautiful images to show for it; images that take me back to that very moment and allow me to relive the first chapter of our lives together as husband and wife. It’s a beautiful thing and I feel indebted to Viera Photographics for their love, passion, taste, and talent.

Dear Viera Photographics family –

A note of thanks for being willing & able to capture my sister’s wedding last month. From the moment you guys pulled up in the Smog Shoppe parking lot we knew that we had “found” some really cool winners to capture the day. Our entire family fell in love with all of you! (As witnessed by all the shots of Jaime and Dennis that my mom had on her camera at the end of the night!) Don’t worry Dennis – she never got a shot of you without your camera in front of your face :) We We are all looking forward to celebrating again with you on Dennis’ birthday this year! Haha. My sister and Josh had, as they said, the “perfect day” and you all were very much a part of making that happen. So thank you! Thank you for being the “dream photographers” that my sister has always wanted. Thank you for humoring our mom, for standing in the middle of traffive to get that perfect group shot, for just bneing so darned awesome. :)

You guys rock

The Viera team are absolutely amazing human beings…and even better photographers. They actually made our wedding more fun and they captured so much joy in their photos. We had a 2 day wedding and they captured the unique essence of each day. The pictures are artistic and warm. If I could give higher than 5 stars I would.

Ingrid and Andy

Andy and I had a winter mountain wedding with no guests. Thus, it was really important that we had lasting documentation for friends and family. The Vieras are great at finding beauty in many situations, and their creativity throughout the day was fun and inspiring to be around, not to mention without obligations, timelines and schedules, we really got to enjoy the photographic experience.

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.

Michelle and Jonathan

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being such a big part of our wedding – you have captured the day perfectly! Every tear, every laugh and every smile. We know these photos will always remind us of how we felt that day and that is the very best gift of all. You guys are truly an amazing talented team and the best part it – you are a blast to be around! WE will keep in touch  – as you are the only photographers we would want to photograph our family. Thank you!!!!

Kim and Mike

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!

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.

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…
