I'm someone who finds great joy in creating and capturing beauty wherever I go.
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. Whether you're a fellow enthusiast or a couple planning your special day, I invite you to connect with me. Let's share stories, sip coffee, and explore the art of photography together.
I believe when my clients hire me, they are hiring me for my ability to tell their stories through my lens. As a wedding photographer, I take the time to create a magical story through my lens for you.
Every wedding is unique, a nd offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways. My job is to document those fleeting moments, and memories in a tangible form, so clients can pass down their memories for future generations.
"A PHOTOGRAPH IS A RETURN TICKET TO A MOMENT OTHERWISE GONE."
PHOTOGRAPHS ARE PART OF HUMAN LEGACY,
AND AN INSTRUMENT TO DOCUMENT OUR EXISTENCE.
I love documenting each couple's unique love story and presenting it in the most beautiful way possible through my lens.
