"There is one thing that the photograph must contain: the humanity of the moment.”

BEHIND THE LENS
As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be an artist.
Since people started asking "what do you want to be when you grow up?" my answer never wavered: an Artist. My experiences with drawing and painting led to a BFA in Printmaking, with a focus on photographic processes and Art History. I found that I loved business too, so I went on to receive an MA in Professional Writing. In 2009, art and business came together to form Lisa Rigby Photography. I learned that weddings were one of the moments in people's lifetimes when they would commission original works of art - made for and about them. This collection of photographs would become part of their life’s story.
For the past 15 years I've been a full-time wedding photographer. Since then, Rangefinder Magazine honored me as one of the world’s “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography.” I’m honored to be twice named as Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston® “Best Wedding Photographer.” Most of all, I'm honored to have been chosen by over 400 couples who have entrusted me with helping to craft their legacy.
MY BELIEF IS SIMPLY THIS:
What makes an old book, movie, or work of art resonate through the decades? Why are future generations able to identify with certain stories and images while some creative works fall into obscurity? I believe that the enduring element in art is human nature. Images that go beyond surface beauty and capture our true nature will remain infinitely relatable.
TO ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN

TO DO WITH
art of observation.
the way you see them.

You love to plan but you're also open to serendipity and find joy in the unexpected. You're curious and find yourself learning something new every day. You and your partner probably already feel married, and you want to celebrate with your friends and family. Whether you've been planning this moment since you were a child, or whether you never dared dream that you'd find your person - you've found something beautiful. You want to create a day whose beauty matches those feelings.
