Alex and Rob are such a fantastic team! I felt so completely at ease and comfortable around them through such a vulnerable experience. I had an incredible time out at Sooke Potholes shooting this and feeling like a model for the day!
So happy and proud of myself for doing this and now I can check Boudoir Photography Shoot off of my bucket list!!
I would highly recommend them to anyone I know who is looking to capture incredible photos and memories that will last a lifetime! If you’re thinking about it, just rip the Band-Aid and do it! You won’t regret it!!!
I had my first ever boudoir shoot with Alex and Rob a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing!
I was pretty nervous before hand but they are so easy going that I relaxed as soon as we started. The session went smoothly and I loved how they helped direct me during the shoot. Then I received my photos a few days later and I was blown away!
Not only are Alex and Rob both professional and fun but they also clearly have amazing artistic talent!
I stumbled upon a promotion ad of the “30 day Self Love Project”, Riske Photography was putting on one night and I entered on a whim.
I’ve been on a bit of a self love journey the last few years after a really hard year where I let it get me down and I ended up losing my sense of self. It’s been a journey of highs and lows and ebbs and flows, as life usually is, trying to get back to myself.
I’ve always thought of myself as awkward, and not photogenic AT ALL when it came to photos of me and I’ve been really working on getting that idea out of my head. I thought a boudoir shoot would be the perfect way to gain a different perspective on myself, see myself in a new light, and give me the confidence boost I was needing in my life.
I was so grateful when I found out I was one of the ones chosen for this amazing project!!!
Rob and Alex, who make up the amazing duo of Riske Photography, are AMAZING. They each bring their unique eye and vision to the shoot.
They instantly made me feel so welcomed, relaxed and comfortable- making the shoot easy breezy and so fun ( a little bubbly never hurt either ;))
The photos turned out better than I ever thought they would (I thought my awkwardness would ruin all the photos, lol ) and they really worked with me after to make sure I was happy with the package I had chosen.
I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better first time boudoir shoot, I still get so happy and excited when I think back to it and look over my beautiful photos.
I’m so blessed and grateful I got to work with them, they are amazing people and are so talented and passionate about what they do and it really shines through in their work!
I would highly recommend taking that chance on yourself and stepping out of your comfort zone, I know I am so happy I took that leap.
I’ve already started planning my next shoot, haha!
Thank you so much Rob and Alex, and I look forward to working with you guys again in the future ❤️
Lots of love,
I have always had a strained relationship with my body image – the journey of self love has been a confusing battle. I thought I had developed ways to love myself through thoughtful actions and intentional practice but my efforts somehow felt insincere.
I had made this idea of self love entirely and always about me, about blindly putting myself first no matter what. I could not trust that others could accept me for who I was and love me the way I wanted. I had still not truly accepted myself, as I continued to rely on constant external validation.
It was artificial and ego serving. I did not feel free.
After my session with Rob and Alex, I was stunned by the beauty in the images I saw. I was able to trust 2 people that I was getting to know, to guide me in recognizing my truth. It felt empowering to allow the nature sweep me up, and surrender to the vulnerability that usually overwhelmed me. They were able to capture all that magnificent beauty and love that thrived within me in that moment. It was so fun to be courageous and push my boundaries.
I don’t quite know how to explain it, but I feel different now…I feel at ease. I LOVE my body, I love my curves- my imperfections and flaws are not gone but they are not the focus anymore. I highly recommend a boudoir session to everyone especially with this dynamic duo. One of the best gifts I have ever given myself!
From start to finish, my entire experience with the two was extremely easygoing yet professional. From meeting to collaborating on the photoshoot ideas and details, right through to sitting in a tub filled with dry ice, it was a very wonderful experience!
As a model that was more or less a rookie, I was slightly nervous leading up to the shoot itself. However, Alex & Rob gave the right amount of direction and support for me to feel completely comfortable and turn the photos into masterpieces.
I would recommend anyone that is interested in getting some beautiful, creative photos taken to consider Riske Photography Co. I am looking SO forward to doing another shoot sometime in the future!
Shooting with Riske Photography was a true honour and a blast! I felt safe and supported to let my beauty shine. I felt confident and fierce during the entire shoot.
I think everyone should experience being captured in all of their authenticity by such creative and talented artists! Alex and Rob are true gems and work harmoniously behind the camera to make unforgettable masterpieces.
I’ve done a few shoots with Alex and Rob, ranging from business photos to boudoir. In any scenario, they are keen and professional.
Both have a great eye for beautiful shots and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Alex and Rob were such a delight to work with. I have wanted to do this for a very long time but haven’t taking the jump. They made it so easy to finally just do it. They were friendly and extremaly professional .
I highly recommended them and can not wait till our next shot!!
I first worked with Alex & Rob on a maternity photo shoot. Then they shot our new borns photos.
Most recently, I had my very first Post baby body sexy photo shoot! Super comfortable and extra fun!
I love all the fun ideas and how much personality they brought to my shoot!
I had the pleasure of working with Riske photography for an outdoor shoot. They paid exceptional attention to my comfort throughout the entire day and were meticulously dedicated to getting the perfect shots.
Their creativity never ceased to amaze me as they bounced ideas back and forth to produce the most gorgeous photographs.
I would book with them again in a heartbeat! Thank you again Alex & Rob!!
Both Alex and Rob were a lot of fun to work with. They made me feel comfortable in my own skin and were 100% professional the entire time.
They had very unique ideas and great tips and delivered some beautiful photographs of me!! Thank you again Alex and Rob!
Working with Alex and Rob was comfortable and professional. They found a great location and made me feel safe and beautiful the whole time.
Being my first boudoir shoot I was a little nervous but they made me feel relaxed and able to express myself. Plus the edited results were wonderful.
Would definitely recommend!
From first meeting Alex and Rob and communicating before the shoot, to being in the woods in my lingerie, they were both very professional and asked all the right questions. They were very nice and didn’t pressure me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable in doing, which actually helped me to get out of my comfort zone more.
I’m so happy I was able to go through this experience, the whole session was nothing but good vibes and the photos were absolutely amazing!
Thank you so much again for such an amazing experience!
I cannot recommend more the duo who are Riske Photography. Their kind nature and professionalism made for such a special experience and empowering photoshoot.
Reviewing each photo I could not believe that it was me in the pictures. They work real magic and the final result is nothing short of spectacular!!
This boudoir session was empowering to the MAX and it helped me close this femme chapter of my life, while having a ton of fun. I can now gear up for my chest surgery knowing I honoured my body in the best possible way.
This boudoir session was one of the best investments I’ve ever poured into myself. The photos are absolutely UNREAL. Everyone who I’ve shown them to has been blown away.
Alex and Rob are phenomenal artists, and wonderful people. Highly, highly recommend!
If you’re on the fence about getting professional boudoir shots, I’m here to tell you you *absolutely* must — you will never regret capturing yourself in your beauty at this stage in your life, whatever that may be. This experience gently welcomed me back into a sense of peace and deep connection to the feeling of being the person who lives in this body.
Alex is warm, responsive , and fully present to hold space for me in this therapeutic experience. I felt a warmth and rekindled love for myself that lasted days after the shoot.
I just got my photos back, and that warm feeling has returned.
In the words of Moira Rose:
“Take a thousand naked pictures of yourself now. You may currently think, ‘Oh, I’m too spooky’ or, ‘Nobody wants to see these tiny boobies.’ But believe me, one day you will look at those photos, with much kinder eyes and say, ‘Dear God, I was a beautiful thing!”
The most phenomenal talented photographers you will ever meet!! We absolutely loved our couples shoot and the results were fabulous!! Thank you Alex and Rob!
I had a boudoir photoshoot done with Alex & Rob, they are both very professional and I was comfortable with both of them!
I had gotten this photoshoot done to feel more confident about myself, when I got my gallery reveal I was so overjoyed, I loved every single one of the photos they took!
Now, I have way more confidence than I ever have before, I would refer anyone who wants a boudoir shoot to Riske Photography!
This year I’m 40! I wanted to do something special and memorable for myself. Something that I’ve never done before. Something that could capture me at this point in my life, would build my confidence. Something that I could work towards that I would be proud of, could share with my husband and one day my talk about with my Daughters. That was a boudoir shoot with Riske Photography. This experience was so incredibly special and exceeded all my expectations from start to finish!!
I was flying to Victoria from Kelowna so my packing was an issue for me as always. Alex completely lifted my stresses when she suggested using the gorgeous client wardrobe. I picked 4 stunning pieces that I wouldn’t have been able to find in store and fell in love with the look of them!
From start to finish I felt comfortable, empowered, sexy and so confident. This experience was incredible! I would recommend using Riske Photography to anyone looking for a boudoir shoot because it was so much more than gorgeous photos. It was a day I’ll never forget. Thank you so much Alex and Rob.
Honestly when I wanted to do this I was at a fairly insecure point of my life I had given birth, raised a child, my body was not what it used to be and this opportunity felt like it was needed. I was so empowered by every second of this process!
Walking into the studio getting my makeup done, you look at yourself in the mirror & almost explode with self-love.
You’re in a whole other world then you do the shoot and I cannot explain how amazing you’ll feel! You feel like you own the world and it was such an uplifting experience.
I recommend anyone who is struggling with insecurities or are questioning themselves in any way, this will bring you up to a level that maybe you’re not even ready for, it was so satisfying. I’m so happy that I did it! Also even if you feel like a million bucks. It was so much fun!
I booked an outdoor boudoir shoot with Alex & Rob and it was an amazing experience. They worked so well as a team/couple and were so patient with each other which was a breath of fresh air to see.
The two of them were very easy going, light, and fun. We had some good laughs throughout the day, and at no point did I feel uncomfortable or awkward. Rob and Alex were extremely professional and thoughtful from start to finish.
I would highly recommend Riske Photography if you’re looking for an empowering shoot. Xo
I wanted to do something nice for my husband and decided on a boudoir shoot. I googled it and Riske was the first one that popped up. After looking at a few others I decided to go with them. I’m so happy I did. The entire process was so easy. I loved Alex and Rob’s energy throughout the whole thing. I was nervous and excited to do it, especially once the day arrived. But walking into their apartment the day of, I immediately relaxed and felt taken care of. Very pampered. Rob and Alex are so easy going and relaxed it’s hard not to be in their presence. The make up artist they work with is absolutely amazing as well.
I definitely had moments of uncomfortableness at the beginning of the shoot but I knew it was just my own insecurities and nothing to do with Alex and Rob. And once we go into it full swing, I relaxed again.
It’s something that stretches your comfort levels, but I’m so happy I did it and felt so empowered after. The photos were exactly what I was expecting and then so much more. I have those now forever. I felt so beautiful and strong and I got to see myself like others see me. Not how I see myself. I’d do another shoot in a heart beat and would definitely choose Riske Photography again!! Thank you so much, Alex and Rob!!
