A little about me:
I am a local Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer servicing Hampton Roads and beyond. I specialize in photographing weddings, engagements and families. I married my best friend (who is also in the wedding industry), have two children and two fur babies. I love to go camping with my family, visit Disney World each year and travel internationally for humanitarian projects. I started my own photography business several years ago while juggling my full-time corporate career as an accountant. Thankfully, I was able to leave the corporate world to focus solely on my business and spend more time with my family.
Why should you pick me for your wedding?
I love taking pictures of people in love! I look forward to weddings because I get to be part of and capture each love story through my photography. I am emotionally driven in my work, so I am able to capture all your special moments candidly so that you can look back at your big day and reminisce for years to come. I also pride myself in my ability to get beautiful pictures of every bride and groom. I hear so often "I am not photogenic" or "I hate pictures of me." What this means to me is that they have never had the opportunity to find someone that will spend the time to make them comfortable in front of the camera so that their beauty comes through in the images. I am a very down-to-earth person and my laid back and relaxed demeanor will help to make you feel comfortable so I can capture real smiles and emotion. I also specialize in both natural lighting and the use of off camera flash and will bring the appropriate lighting setup to highlight those special moments at your reception. Whether you are having a small beach wedding at sunset or planning on extravagant formal affair, I have a wedding package to meet your needs.
Do you just do weddings?
I do all types of photography: maternity, newborns, seniors, families, pets, you name it! I specialize in engagements and weddings, but I also put my heart into any type of portrait session or event. What is awesome about being a Wedding Photographer is that my brides and grooms come back for photos of the next big event in their lives. Whether it be maternity and newborn sessions or annual family photos, I love that I get to continue to see my clients over time and watch their families grow! #ilovemyjob :)
