ABOUT AMY RIORDAN

Hey! I'm Amy Riordan, Commercial Photographer & FAA Certified Drone Pilot based in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I specialize in social media image & video collections to give small businesses vibrant content for consistent posting.

I'm A Former Social Media Strategist. I realized my passion for photography while helping local business owners determine what content to post when. Surprise! It turns out the issues they were facing had more to do with a lack of quality, applicable content & I LOVE providing it. 

My Shooting Process Is Incredibly Detailed. My process is similar to that of a wedding photographer. I document everything that is your business; aerial images of your facility, branding shots of you & your team in action, individual product shots, styled photography to dynamically capture your product or service in a lifestyle way & video clips for YouTube, Instagram reels, etc. to give your company that BIG extra something. 

I Grew Up Here In Coeur d'Alene. There is so much pride in saying that I grew up here in CDA. Our little city has come such a long way in such a short time, & I'm eager to watch it grow & flourish with amazing new businesses - some of which are owned by the people I went to high school with. Go Vikings!

It Wasn't Always About Photography. I used to want to sing for a living, & I did a lot of writing during that time as well. You would think that I would have noticed my passion for photography back when I was writing my first blog & refusing to use stock images, but not quite. My photography flourished while I was telling myself it was all about the writing, it flourished when I told myself it was all about social media. It wasn't until I started realizing just how meaningful & fulfilling it was to document someone's business & history that I really started considering this as a full time career.

When I'm Not Working, You'll Find Me With My Amazing Husband Tim, Our Lab/Pit Penny & No Surprise - A Camera. If you live here too, you know that those spectacular views surrounding us are something that cannot be bottled, though I certainly try with every shot that I take. We are often out hiking, on the lake in some way or camping in the backwoods. We are also big fans of Netflix & DIY at-home projects.
