a little more about me | Virginia Wedding Photographer

I'm Liz and I... … love, love my job.

… am a wife, big sister, little sister, aunt, daughter, grand daughter and dear friend.

… dream of adding “mother” to that list sooner than later.

… actually enjoy the cha-cha slide during your reception and I love getting shots of you all clapping your hands! “clap, clap, clap your hands!”

… love road trips (preferably the winding back roads) so please don’t let my location stop your inquiry!

… was born/raised a Navy brat and am now a happily married Army wife. I don’t think I need to say that our servicemen have a special place in my heart.

… have two boston terriers and a weimaraner/vizsla mix that keep me company everyday in my home office.

… wish I could be BFFs with every bride who hires me. It’s way more fun to share a wedding day with a FRIEND!

… think I should have been born in the 20’s or 30’s because I dream every day of being a 50’s housewife.

… strive to give you timeless images that you will still love ten or twenty years down the road.

… love ALL kinds of music from bluegrass to go-go (my ghetto roots shining through) to blues… if I know the lyrics, I like the song!

… absolutely adore and cherish my family. They are the most important people in the world to me and I always strive to keep them first.

… truly enjoy building long-term relationships with my clients and having the opportunity to capture different events in their lives.

… currently have an unhealthy obsession with twitter. You should follow me!

… am a proud member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA) and the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).

… will be on a high for about 3-4 days following a birth session. Birth is simply. breathtakingly. amazing.

… have a college degree in graphic design.

… love, love to travel. Not just around the state, but around the world. I went to Nepal in 2009 and look forward to a trip to Africa sometime in the next few years.

… believe I was born to dance. You may or may not catch me dancing at your reception while simultaneously taking pictures.

… can’t remember if I already said that I love my job? Have I mentioned that?
