A Lovely Photo » Richmond Virginia Wedding Photographer

  • Hello there! I'm Shawnee and the lady behind the lens of A Lovely Photo. I'm lucky enough to do what I love, and absolutely love what I do. When I'm not photographing rad people completely smitten with each other, you can find me: cuddling with my herd of furry friends, at the local craft brewery with my favorite people, exploring my eclectic hometown of Richmond, Virginia, picnicking by the river, or camping in the mountains. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and adore seeing couples head over heels for each other. I am so lucky to be able to capture such special moments and help create memories. Seriously, I just LOVE my clients, they are some of the greatest folks around!

    If you want someone that is going to help talk you through the nervous last moments, shed a tear at the ceremony, slam a glass of champagne with you before you walk down the aisle, never ask you to get in silly poses or "say cheese!", capture all those little moments you didn't even realize were happening, and feel more like a new friend by the end of the day than just the photographer ... then let's talk!

    I enjoy getting to know my clients and what they are passionate about. I want to know what makes you giggle until your sides hurt, and whats so beautiful that it makes you cry. I believe the best images are created when your personality gets to shine through an already incredible moment. I'm just lucky enough to be there and capture the realness. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Let's work together to create some stellar images. I can't wait to meet you!
