Greetings! I am Virginia, a St. Louis-based freelance photographer specializing in capturing wedding stories. I have ninja qualities, such as stealth, speed, agility, accuracy and my tendency to wear all black, all the time. I love to make people laugh, especially when making their portrait. Weddings are incredibly inspiring to me, because they are a concoction of the best things in life; family and friends, laughter, delicious food, flowers, music and a celebration of love.
I have a soft spot for small, intimate, non-traditional weddings. My photos are not so traditional and you won't see me checking off a shot list and setting up moments throughout the day. I'm a story teller, capturing real moments as they happen in my own stylized way.
A lot of my work is influenced by architecture and light. I love wandering down a street and finding wonderful and unexpected locations. On the contrast, I've always felt at home in the woods, in nature and near water, so I'm naturally filled with inspiration when I am in those elements.
On my own time, I enjoy the great outdoors, gardening, making music with friends, painting and experimenting with film. I would describe myself as empathetic, strong, generous and hilarious. My biggest inspirations are people, wilderness, architecture, music, traveling and cats. My current favorite food is chocolate and I like my coffee black.
