About me

If there is one thing I do not like is to talk about myself but I realize it would make things easier for you to get to know me.

So here is a little background of my life.
I was born and raised in Lyon, France and decided to take a year off and come over to the States, I then met Nick, my better half….and here we are 25 years later with our three boys.

I am blessed with a good life: healthy children, good friends, a loving family and an amazing job that has been a life process and is so rewarding, thanks to wonderful clients, colleagues and vendors who have spread kind words and given generous compliments on my work.

I also would like to mention that being a mother of three boys, I have to balance my work which is why I only cover about 20 weddings a year.
I truly love what I do and I put my heart and soul in every wedding I photograph, as I feel so fortunate to be a part of someone’s life and capture this magical time forever. I love being part of  my clients’ life, seeing them every year and through out life changing moments such as new babies, kids going to college, anniversaries, family reunion….

Here is what they have to say:

We could not have asked for a better photographer- Dominique is simply amazing. She is calm, caring, thoughtful, and professional. It has almost been a year since our wedding and every time we look at our photos we are taken back to our special day! We would highly recommend Dominique for engagement, rehearsal, and wedding photos. We cannot wait to have her capture another event in our lives! She is such a talented photographer and wonderful person to work with.

If you need a photographer for special events or just for a family photo shoot, look no further. Dominique has captured images of our family for the last four years now in what has become an annual photo shoot, and we are constantly amazed by her ability to deal with two rambunctious kids and a crazy dog and produce such beautiful and heartwarming photos – we are stunned (and inspired) by her exceptional talent – she truly has a special gift.

Dominique was recommended to us by a mutual friend, and we are thrilled to have made the connection. She photographed our budding little family last Fall, and was so helpful in traveling to meet us. She made the session feel as if we were just out on a walk with a old friend, and made us feel so at ease. The resulting pictures truly took our breath away. Our 11-month old son was captured in so many touching photos, which we know wasn’t easy, as he was stuffing leaves in his mouth faster than we could keep up with! Dominique was able to catch so many gorgeous moments between our family, and help create these shots with such ease. We will absolutely use Dominique again, as we are expecting another member to our family this summer, and we would aabsolutely recommend her to anyone. She’s the best!

Dominique has been taking annual photos for us since our daughter was born 3yrs ago. We first went with Dominique because she was willing to travel; we’ve stayed because we love her photos so much!

We loved Dominique from the moment we met her in a gelato shop in Charlottesville – warm, engaging, personable. She clearly loves her work and commits fully to each couple she works with. We did not want a videographer for our wedding day and instead wanted a photographer who would capture moments that would retell the story and emotion of the day – she photographed our wedding in October of 2011 and we were thrilled with the outcome… her unique eye and perspective gave us gorgeous pictures and an ability to relive the day in the many (many) years to come!

Dominique was recommended to us and we could not be more thankful that we found her. She photographed our wedding and captured the most amazing shots. Dominique just breezed through and made us feel so comfortable and at ease during that special day. Since our wedding Dominique has also now taken photos of our new baby. She was so patient and flexible with us and our newborn throughout the shoot, it was the perfect day. When we got back the pictures we were amazed at how she captured the innocence of our daughter. We hope to always keep Dominique in our lives and have her continue to capture new additions to the family and other momentous events! She is the best photographer out there and I could not recommend her any more highly! BOOK HER TODAY, you won’t regret the decision!

Dominique was hands down the easiest person to work with, not to mention how talented & flexible she is. Her photos were absolutely gorgeous, and she and John (the guy who works with her) were so unobtrusive that they were able to capture some beautiful candid shots of friends and family that I didn’t think would be possible. Not to mention she’s one of the few non-overpriced photogs in the area. ABSOLUTELY hire her!

“…Dominique’s quality of work is superb! The end result and the process every step of the way far exceeded our expectations. She went above and beyond for us. A 6:30pm fall wedding presented great challenges for having proper lighting to capture the beautiful surroundings of our outdoor wedding. Dominique met with us weeks after the wedding and granted me the opportunity of wearing my wedding dress twice! ”

“These photos are truly breathtaking…We just got home tonight from Aruba and have watched it over and over. It made us cry with joy! And laugh and laugh!! You really have a wonderful artistic perspective — we love how your each shot in the slideshow is thoughtful and off-beat. I forwarded it tonight to many of our guests and family and compliments streaming in! :)”
