As a Richmond Wedding Photographer, I have made it my personal mission to offer couples planning a wedding for any destination throughout the counties of Virginia and beyond, a fun and modern experience.

I focus on serving the greater Richmond, VA metro area. However, I am also a wedding photographer for couples in cities such as Baltimore, New York City, and Washington D.C. So, while I may be physically located in Richmond, VA I do love to travel for fabulous couples in fabulous cities to ensure that they have something amazing when their wedding day comes and goes.

When seeking out your wedding photographer in Richmond here are some key points that, as a professional Virginia wedding photographer, I believe every newly engaged couple should consider when looking for the best Richmond wedding photographer.

Every photographer is blessed with a truly unique personality. This simple fact may mean that they only mesh with other unique personality types. Finding a wedding photographer whose personality you love and adore can become a major factor in the overall experience. You want to ensure that you love every minute and every memory that your wedding day has to offer. So, selecting a professional photographer who you truly enjoy being around is crucial. For this reason, I believe that, in addition to the obvious - your photography needs to be able to take good quality photos - personality is a HUGE deal.

When you are viewing and comparing photos of Richmond wedding photographer or other local wedding photographers you should notice that not everyone professional photographer has the same stylistic approach when it comes to capturing images and post processing. At the end of the day you will be left with your wedding photos in hopes of reliving those precious memories. Imagine not being truly in love with the style in which the photos were taken or post processed. This will be what you have to look at for the rest of your lives together. For this reason it becomes significantly important to ensure that you love the style of photography that you will be displaying in your home. Don't be afraid to ask your Richmond photographer or your Washing D.C. wedding photographer to provide you with a handful of recent examples in the form of full wedding galleries so that you can make an educated decision about their stylistic approach.

While price and budget is always a consideration, it falls to the bottom of my list of how to find the best Richmond wedding photographer. I truly believe that you should find a photographer whose personality you adore, whose style you can't live without, and then work with the photographer on the price and budget. More often than not, if you have a realistic photography budget and you love and adore said wedding photographer, they will work with you to make sure that you have exactly what you need.

I feel that one of the best ways to get to know my wedding couples is to spend time with them taking photos. For this reason I believe the engagement session is priceless. This is when we will begin to establish our relationship and get to know each other better. I enjoy the relationships that I create with each of my couples. At the end of the day once we get to know each other and you see how amazing your photos turned out, you will trust me 100%.

I am a Virginia wedding photographer based in the Richmond, VA area. I would love to explore options with you. Don't be afraid to contact me so we can open those lines of communication. I can't wait to get the low down on your fabulous wedding day. I will be there every step of the way!
