Candace Kutheis Riley


Trading her daytime administrative assistant duties for her Nikon at night, Candace is entering her second season as photographer for Sooners Hockey.

Aspiring for a spot in the NHL photography ranks, she has also shot for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins, the NCAA Women’s Frozen Four, and the Oklahoma City Junior Blazers. “It’s more than the action on the ice that I enjoy capturing. It’s the moments off-ice, around the rink that complete the story for me.


I love showing what makes up the complete hockey player - pre-game, locker room, on ice action, behind the scenes on road trips. It all comes together to form a story that I love telling through photos.” When she’s not behind the camera, you can probably find Candace playing guitar, working out, or designing and making her own jewelry.& more.
