Bruce Weber photographed River on two occasions- in 1990 for Vogue and 1991 for Interview. He was very fond of River describing him as “just the most amazing person” and “a friend of mine i really adored” 

He would name one of his golden retrievers ‘River’ after him saying, “I wanted to name one of my dogs after River. He reminds me a little bit of River because he always needs a hug”
