Hi there, and welcome! My name is Dana, and I am a fun and adventurous wedding photographer for Hampton Roads and beyond. I want to make sure you look your best and that your wedding day is captured perfectly. My light, warm, and colorful style will allow your wedding day to brighten up your memories for years to come. 

Providing the best wedding day experience is my number one goal

The one taking the photo

Photographing weddings for the most fun brides and grooms

How's it going? I'm Dana, a wedding photographer based out of Hampton Roads. Two years ago, my husband, before leaving for deployment, motivated me to try something crazy before he left for deployment. I followed his request and decided to pick up a camera for the first time in 8 years and try out this photography thing. Now, it's all I think about! I do have a life outside this business so if I'm not capturing your special moments, you will find me hiking, traveling, and exploring local restaurants with my husband.
