Some photos from our last snow…. hopefully!
“This review won’t be very different from the other reviews already posted, because Dominique is an absolutely fantastic photographer, no question about it.
I found her through my venue’s preferred vendor list, and I do not at all regret our decision to hire her! From the beginning, she was so professional and responsive, which wasn’t exactly easy since during most of my wedding planning, I lived in France and she was in Charlottesville. We still were able to keep in touch by email and phone calls, and we even got to spend time with her face-to-face during a summer trip she took to Lyon, France (where we were living at the time). As the date came closer, she was in touch to talk about group photos and all the other little details. She was so genuinely interested in and excited for our wedding, I could just tell in her voice. She has such a great eye for detail and knows where she needs to be to get the best shots. And the funny thing was that during the ceremony and reception, I didn’t even see her! She is just really great at blending in and getting those candid moments caught on camera when you don’t even know she’s there.
Something else about Dominique’s services that really added value for us was that she is bilingual French/English and was able to communicate with my French in-laws about where she wanted them to be for photos in French so they could understand. This was so helpful because I didn’t have to worry about interpreting for them at all.
And of course…the photos. I can’t say enough about them. People were moved to tears by looking at them, I’m serious. She let me know the preview photos were up on her blog a week after the wedding and I can’t wait to get the rest!
I recommend her wholeheartedly!
The Clifton Inn is such a romantic venue for a wedding. It is rare when I photograph weddings in the winter, but what a treat it was. Natalie and Lionel used to live in my home town of Lyon, France and I had the pleasure to meet them for a drink last summer during my visit.
I had such a fun time walking around Jones Point Park in Alexandria with Laura and Geoff. They are a super sweet couple and I am looking forward to photograph their wedding next Fall at King family Vineyards.
It is always wonderful to get to know my lovely couples before their wedding. An engagement session is a great way to accomplish this. I am looking forward to photographing their wedding next Fall at King family vineyards.
Engagement photos are always fun. It is a great way to know the photographer and vice versa. Gorgeous fall colors. Can’t wait to photogrpah their wedding next summer at Keswick Hall
