About Aaron Riddle

About Aaron Riddle - Virginia Civil Marriage Officiant and Photographer

Born and raised in the Baltimore, MD area, I moved out to Winchester, VA with my wife in 2005 to start a family and fell in love with the area. While working for Laurel Ridge Community College as their Creative Director, I started my own wedding photography business in 2009 and photographed over 150 weddings of all sizes over the entire east coast.

In 2016, I decided to become a different type of photographer…one with the authority to perform civil marriage ceremonies! I was honored to be appointed by Frederick County Virginia’s presiding Circuit Court Judge to legally marry couples anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Formerly a professional cartoonist, as well as an avid marathon runner, I gave up those pursuits and other hobbies to become executive director of Piggins and Banks Pig and Animal Sanctuary (a nonprofit organization based at my home where we give a forever home to abused, abandoned, and neglected pigs and other animals).

I received a Bachelor of Visual and Performing Arts degree with a graphic design major in 2002 from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and am happily married with two daughters.
