my why

why i became a photographer

He gave me a 110mm film camera to document life through my young eyes, and at 8 years old I enjoyed every opportunity to do just that. He taught me how to anticipate moments, and he was the first to train me when I found my way back to the camera in 2010. I call him Dad! 

Growing up, I witnessed the love of my mother and father, and I have always known what it feels like to be loved. Today, I document love stories in a way that allows couples to be their authentic selves. I want to tell a love story - your story. 

Each time you look at your wedding images, I want you to be reminded that on this particular day, and at this particular moment in time - this is where you were, who you were, and what you were doing. We grow, we age, and we change. It's inevitable. However, when you look at a photo that I've taken, I want it to be a timeless reminder of how you looked and felt at that specific time in your life.

I'm Terri and I am a curator of timeless, romantic, and fun love stories! Yes, I tell love stories. Not just any story, but YOUR story. I am a wedding photographer based in Northern Virginia, but I LOVE to travel! Let's discuss how we can best document your day!
