Natural and Easy Storytelling

The son of a successful banker, Robert Radifera grew up in Washington D.C., with a high-paying finance career waiting for him after college. A year abroad in Paris and a slew of photography and art classes forever changed his trajectory.

“Back at school in the States senior year, I’m filling out my form for last semester and I was freaking out about being an economics major,” Robert says. “It just hit me. This is not who I am. I loved my art classes.”
He decided to take an extra semester and graduated from Pennsylvania’s Allegheny College, earning a Bachelor of Arts with a focus on photography. Robert interned for D.C. commercial photographers who paid him with the high-end restaurant food he was shooting.
“All of my friends were getting married at the time, so I started shooting weddings for a couple of hundred bucks,” he says. “I was really good at it. I loved it. And I decided I could do this for a living.”
Robert married his college sweetheart Lauren and moved to Afton and then Charlottesville, watching the local wedding industry take flight and sharpening his craft by shooting hundreds of weddings over the years. Today, his style is described as classic and timeless, preserving history and serving as a couple’s documentarian.
“I want photos that will last for the great-grandkids and the great-great-grandkids to appreciate,” he says. “I tell my clients ‘If you didn’t remember I was there outside of the formal shots, then I did my job.’”
Robert documents your Charlottesville wedding day as it unfolds, setting up the perfect lighting and angle as needed and encapsulating those beautiful getting-ready candids between a bride and her mother and bridesmaids — some of his favorite genuine moments to shoot. He also carries a soft spot for the look on a groom’s face when they see their partner for the first time that day.
“Capturing those moments is what it’s all about,” he says. “They’ll remember how they felt at that moment and it will come flooding back when they see their photos later.”

Real Talk with

Wedding Photographer Robert Radifera

The best weddings are…

from the heart and who they are. During Covid, 95 percent of my weddings were canceled. We shot a lot of intimate backyard weddings and they were having the best time ever. You could tell those memories were going to last.

My biggest piece of advice is…

Because weddings today are so extensive and there’s so much involved, sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important. And that’s that you’re marrying your best friend — Lauren Radifera, Robert’s wife and wedding photography culling expert

I always have…

candy. Endless amounts. I love Zots and Mentos from Asia. I share them with my assistants and the wedding party if they need something.

The shot I love to get is…

all the end of the night dance moments. Their ties are off, their shirts are unbuttoned, and they’re sweaty and laughing. Someone always has a crazy dance move or flip I can catch.

My favorite camera is...

Nikon D5

My favorite special wedding moment is...

I remember a particular wedding where the best man was the husband’s dad and as the bride was walking down the aisle you could see the groom getting choked up. And the dad just puts his hand solidly on his son’s shoulder. I’ve shot a billion of them, but it’s moments like that where no one’s saying anything and it’s emotional. I still get teary.


I feel very blessed that I’m able to go out every day and make art. I’m able to create every day. It’s a gift.
