From Richmond to Emporia, A Photographer's Journey
Hello, I'm Mr. Anthony, and I'm proud to call Virginia my home. Born and raised in Petersburg, just outside of Richmond, my roots run deep in this vibrant community. Now, my wife and I reside in the charming town of Emporia, enjoying a quieter pace of life as our children have all flown the nest.
A Love Story with Photography
My love affair with weddings started nearly two decades ago in the heart of Richmond, Virginia. My journey into the world of photography is a tale of transition, passion, and a touch of serendipity.
Originally trained in Cosmetology, my path took a dramatic turn when I discovered the art of photography. The transition from styling hair to capturing moments behind the lens is a story that I'd love to share with you over a nice, hot cup of coffee. Each twist and turn of this journey has added layers to my perspective, enriching my approach to photography.
The Obsession Begins
In 2002, I took my first steps into wedding photography, and something incredible happened. I became utterly obsessed. From my initial focus on capturing hairstyles and models, the world of weddings opened up a new realm of possibilities for me. The ability to create art, to connect with my subjects, and to freeze moments in time fascinated me like nothing else. From that moment, I was hooked, and I never looked back.
Connecting Through Photography
What captivates me about photography is more than just the technicalities; it's the connection with my subjects, the ability to tell stories through images. Every click of the shutter is an opportunity to create something beautiful, something that resonates with the emotions of the moment.
Today, I am privileged to turn my passion into a profession, capturing the essence of love stories in every frame. I invite you to connect with me. Let's share stories, sip coffee, and explore the art of photography together.
