Timeless was amazing to work with! I was so overwhelmed looking through other vendors and seeing how out of budget they were. I was nervous to book with Timeless, but from the start, they were so easy to work with, extremely responsive, and catered to our budget and needs. We had to make last minute changes and they were very accommodating. Sarah and Jonah were a great team to work with. They were very professional yet fun to work with. And to my surprise all of our pictures were ready within 5 DAYS! I could not believe it. And all 3 of our wedding videos were ready within 2 WEEKS. They went above and beyond and we are extremely happy with how everything turned out!

Bethany Aubre Photography

Culpeper, VA
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $3,900
  • Serves Afton, VA

It is so nice to have you here! I am a Charlottesville Washington DC and Virginia Wedding Photographer who creates artful film-inspired imagery with a combination of timeless editorial and hybrid candid photography that recreates tangible memories of what matters most: you and your authentic love story. With a passion for wanderlust and most importantly my family, I know that life's most cherished moments are fleeting. It's an honor to create emotional love-story centered heirlooms that can be passed down for generations to come.

Working with Bethany from the very beginning was an absolutely incredible experience. Wedding planning can be stressful, but she took out 100% of the stress when it came to photography. Bethany is so energetic, organized, and kind. Words cannot describe how impressed I was by her attention to detail, her decisive and quick thinking as she arranged setups for poses and came up with ideas for shots in a matter of seconds. My entire bridal party was even amazed by her eye for detail and skillful work as she captured portraits and moments from the day. I felt like I was able to sit back and relax, knowing she had everything under control. She was by far my favorite professional I worked with while planning my wedding. I truly cannot recommend Bethany or her work highly enough.

Gordonsville, VA

I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), drink way too much Coca-Cola, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.

Would recommend Gracie to anyone! She takes the time to get to know your vision and executes it perfectly. (Plus her sneak peek was over 60 pictures which was amazing!!)

  • Starts at $3,900

I never thought I would be a wedding photographer. I started my professional career in Boulder, Colorado, riding on the backs of motorcycles, chasing professional cyclists through winding roads and epic climbs. I never thought I would find another career as exhilarating and rewarding but I was wrong. I photographed weddings in Colorado, but it wasn’t until moving East, to Charlottesville, Virginia, that I fell in love with them. I love all of the beauty of the flowers and the pretty clothing, but what I love most is documenting the love between the two of you, and the complete joy of your best day ever. We celebrate all couples!

Beth is absolutely wonderful! From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, every single picture is beautiful. Not only is Beth an amazing photographer, she is an amazing person! We enjoyed getting to know her and she will be a lifelong friend. We will remember our wedding forever thanks to her photography.

Hi! I'm Kelly! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Charlottesville, VA. My specialty is couples' photography - surprise proposals, engagement sessions, and weddings! I capture love stories all over Virginia and Washington DC! Everyone's story matters. That's why I believe it is important to let my clients know that I am an LGBTQIA+ and BLM ally.

Awarded Best of Zola
If I could give more than five stars I would! Kelly is the absolute best! Kelly is professional, supportive, calm, yet assertive (needed with a large bridal party). She is absolutely everything we wanted in a wedding photographer and more. Kelly shot our engagement pictures as well as our wedding day. Both shoots were available for us within a very reasonable time which is great when you are anxious to see the result. The wedding photos are filed into categories which makes it very easy when downloading your favorites. We had way more wedding photos than we thought we would get which is a fantastic surprise. Kelly's photographs are soft, but also true to color which was exactly what we wanted. Kelly made us feel completely comfortable during photos and is so kind. She also worked super well with our other vendors (videographer, etc.). We absolutely love her work and are unbelievably thrilled that we chose her to be our wedding photographer. If you are considering using Kelly, do it! You will not be disappointed.

Jack Looney Photography

Crozet, VA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $1,000

Jack is a longtime Charlottesville-Albemarle resident, and currently lives in "downtown" Crozet. He's been a full time photographer in Charlottesville's wedding community for 17 years. Specialties include surprise engagements, and weddings ranging in size and complexity from elopements with a handful of guests, to multi-day celebrations with many hundreds of guests.

Jack is so wonderful. From our first call, we knew that he would be our guy. He is so laid back yet still professional. It was easy for all of our guests to approach him for photos if they wanted. He kept an eye on the sunset and whisked us away for a few amazing shots. He quickly got the obligatory family shots out of the way, very painlessly. He even suggested another local place to go for our first look that was more private and so beautiful. He really looks out for you and what you want. Also, he works insanely quickly. He is really fast to reply to emails as well. You cannot go wrong with Jack. He did such a great job and helped us to relax. HIGHLY recommend him. Book him already!!

Lucy Jalin Photography 

5.0

Charlottesville, VA
  • Photojournalistic style

From developing black and white images in the darkroom to capturing day-to-day happenings as photo manager of the high school yearbook, my camera became an extension of me. I wanted to document the moments of the people I cared about - whether mundane or significant - and create something beautiful. Fast forward ten years and I’ve gone on to complete my Bachelor’s, Master’s, and clinical to become a registered dietitian nutritionist. I’ve had a thriving career at UVA Medical Center for the past five years and witnessed firsthand both the value and fragility of human life.

Awarded Best of Zola
Lucy was by far one of our favorite wedding vendors! Professional, personable, flexible, and abundantly helpful (especially given the crazy ups and downs of planning a 2020 wedding!), Lucy produced beautiful pictures of our wedding that kept in mind everything we had asked for, from our personal style to the needs and preferences of our various family members and friends during what was an especially tricky season. Not only that, Lucy even helped with the event planning side of things too by creating day-of schedule options to help us organize. Lucy's warm, friendly presence had everyone smiling, and we received multiple compliments from friends on the way she blended and helped to capture the day as it moved along, calmly handling any hiccups that arose. My husband and I are still saying, "We love Lucy!"

Audra Jones Photography

Charlottesville, VA
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $7,200

Hi there. I originally hail from Georgia, but am so happy to now call Charlottesville my home. When I'm not chasing down perfect sunlight, you can usually find me tucked away somewhere with a book, writing, enjoying life with my partner Charles, styling my 1920s home, or snuggling with my Frenchie pup, Finny.

Awarded Best of Zola
I don’t even know where to start. Audra was amazing, I don’t know how but we had crazy weather for both our engagement shoot (Canadian wild fires making it the smokiest day of a decade) and our wedding (hottest day of a decade at 100 degrees feels like 110). But Audra could not have been more amazing, she was so flexible and handled all the weather hurdles like such a pro. She was able to take all the photos we wanted and make us feel so comfortable while doing so. She captures such beautiful moments and was so patient when people were late or grumpy about the heat. She then handed us some of the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen and made me feel so gorgeous and that I was back in the moment with my husband. I seriously love every photo so much I think she has such a gorgeous style that can take a simple moment and turn it into a work of art. I cannot recommend her enough.

  • Starts at $2,400

I’ve been a wedding photographer for 11 years, but I’ve been an artist since I could hold a pencil – and I’ve been in love with stories just as long. Of all the ways to create a life around storytelling and art, I’m so glad to have found this one: weddings are filled with stories both intimate and profound, and with elements of beauty that delight the artist in me. I love the challenge of seeking, finding and capturing the beauty I see, and telling your story as I see it unfolding before me.

As a wedding decorator, I get to work with many photographers and Ayesha Ahmad Photography is one of my favorites! I love her style of photography and she is very easy to work with! She takes great portraits of couples as well as decor shots!

Amanda Adams Photography 

5.0

Scottsville, VA
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $6,000

At the heart of my process, I believe in being a calming presence who gives you room to be the most genuine version of yourself in front of my camera, gently guiding you with prompts while capturing sophisticated portraits and true moments. As a bride, you know how fleeting the moments of your wedding day will pass you by. So rather than worrying if you’re missing any of it you value being present, and will hire a photographer who will allow you to do just that. This trust grants you the ability to live in the moment while we’re documenting them for you telling the story of your relationships with a gentle authenticity.

Amanda is a perfect choice to capture all of your best moments, no matter the occasion! Every vendor and the bride and groom appreciated her generous demeanor and skill set. She is a very nice person, too, that continues to care long after the contract ends!

Hi! I'm Brittany, and I'm a photographer, painter, graphic designer in Charlottesville, Virginia. My passion in life is creating art that elevates story and human connection, and weddings are a unique crossroads in life where those two things unfold in powerful ways. Although I am primarily a photographer in the wedding industry, capturing the moments big and small, I also do floral design, invitation design, and keepsake paintings for couples, and therefore have a unique understanding of and appreciation for all that goes making a wedding special and keeping those memories preserved for many years to come.

We loved sharing our wedding day and engagement season with Brittany Fan!! She created SO much beauty on our day and was so generous with her time and communication leading up to it. Brittany is FUN and so good at making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her work is incredible, her photos timeless, the turnaround time was great, and most of all we made a lifelong friend with Brittany. We will forever be grateful for alllll the work she put into our wedding day and all the ways she cared for us through that season. Brittany was easily the BEST decision we made planning!

Awarded Best of Zola
I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. My husband is in the military so we never got a chance to meet John or do an engagement shoot before the wedding day—it didn’t matter. John was so easy to be around, both my husband and I immediately felt like he was one of the group. (So did all of our wedding party) My husband, who normally doesn’t exactly enjoy picture taking, even admitted he had a ton of fun taking pictures because John made it such a blast. It felt so natural and easy. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and felt like he really captured the essence of the day. I’m so grateful we had a friend recommend him and I would 1000% recommend him to anyone.

Tom Daly Photography

Charlottesville, VA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $4,000

I'm a full-time freelance photographer, and have been photographing weddings since 2008. Risking understatement, I love being a photographer. When it comes to weddings, I photograph them in my favorite style -- journalistic. Nothing makes me happier than finding cool, off-the-wall moments at your wedding that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Well, unless those moments happen to be in supreme sunset light. I try to be as hands-off as I can, while still providing direction when needed. Your wedding won't be a Hollywood production photo-shoot with me, it'll be a party with your family and friends that you will be able to enjoy to the fullest!

Awarded Best of Zola
Couldn't recommend Tom more highly - we feel really lucky to have him document our wedding day. He was really fun and easy to work with. We got gorgeous family and couple pictures, but also so many photos that captured the joy in the impromptu moments throughout the day amongst our family and friends. And those are the ones that will help us remember how special that day felt.

It is my honor to capture the purest and most sincere moments in peoples’ lives. Not only do I take pride in providing my clients with stunning images, I do so in a way that is always professional and engaging. Weddings don’t always go exactly as planned. Sometimes there is bad weather, poor lighting, or the timeline just gets derailed. It happens! My clients know that they never need to worry. Dealing with surprises is second nature to me, and my career as a seasoned photographer allows me to never skip a beat. The details of your special day will always be captured beautifully.

Robert is an amazing photographer that exceeded all expectations. He made our friends and families feel at ease while taking genuine pictures. He captured every moment with beautiful pictures that I will cherish forever. Thanks for everything!

Charlottesville, VA
  • Fine art style

Each event, at it’s root, is a story. It’s a unique story of that moment in time- a newborn coming home, a bride and groom embracing or a grandmother on her 85th birthday - and it's an important moment to hold still. My role as a photographer is to tell that story as honestly as I can. I want people to look back on these memories and remember it exactly as they experienced it. That’s why I aim for transparency in my photography that neither adds nor takes away from the moments that I am documenting.

Awarded Best of Zola
Meredith cares passionately about her work and her complete dedication is evident to anyone who has seen her behind the camera. The fun and creative energy she brings to every photographic event is only matched by the captivating artistic quality of her work itself.

Cecilia was our wedding photographer’s second shooter and we are so happy to have met her! My husband Earl was quite apprehensive about taking photos (he has about 2 smiles in him and then he’s over it!) but Cecilia hung out with the groom’s party before the ceremony and made all of the guy’s very comfortable and took some great candid photos! During pre-ceremony photos, in addition to taking photos, Cecilia was so kind and helped me with my train/veil when we were walking around the venue finding picture perfect spots! Thank you for making our wedding day so enjoyable, Cecilia!

Hello! We’re Hunter & Sarah — high school sweethearts, ocean enthusiasts and professional wedding & portrait photographers. We’ve been married for more than two years, but have been together since the 11th grade. The only thing more important to us than making new friends and our weekly date night is our faith!

We deliver incredible images, but more importantly we give our clients an incredible experience — every step of the way.

I used Hunter & Sarah for a family photoshoot for my parents anniversary. Most of us struggle in front of the camera but these two made us laugh and thoroughly enjoy the experience. The pictures are amazing and now displayed all throughout my parents home! I highly recommend this sweet couple.

Ashley Cox Photography is a professional wedding photography studio based in Virginia. Ashley has an eye for beauty in every moment of your wedding day, and preserves it with an artistic touch. She has worked as a wedding photographer for many years, providing exceptional service and stunning collection for each couple. Ashley thrives on capturing the intimate moments where your true beauty shines. She offers a variety of photography packages for weddings of every size, style, and budget.

Do yourself a favor and hire Ashley for your wedding, event, family photos, etc. - she is absolutely AMAZING!! We hired her for our June wedding and it was the best money we spent, hands down. Everything from coordinating our engagement shoot to planning the shots we wanted at the wedding was seamless. Ashley is not just a wedding photographer; she is a true artist and has an incredible talent for styling shoots on the fly, troubleshooting in challenging environments, and making everyone feel SO comfortable. One of my main concerns with our photos was that we would look stiff - with Ashley that was not an issue. She had us laughing and feeling so relaxed from the very beginning. On our wedding day, Ashley was extremely efficient and worked around our desire to have the first look at the ceremony, while also somehow getting all the shots we wanted plus a lot more. We even made the last 15 minutes of our cocktail party! The photos are art-quality, timeless, and everything we hoped they would be - she captured the day exactly as we remembered it, even the crazy-packed dance floor! I really cannot recommend Ashley enough, we will absolutely be using her again in the future!!

Hi there! I'm Kristen Camielle! I'm a fine art photographer located in heart of central Virginia! I have the passion for creating art that makes your heart flutter! I picked up my first camera years ago and knew there was something magical about what can be captured throughout life’s unforgettable moments. My images have been described as romantic, whimsical, and timeless. I love capturing the real moments while adding a little touch of whimsical! As much as you'll find me photographing, my other hobbies consist of traveling the globe, hiking, snowboarding, and just adventuring through this wild life with my husband and pup!

Kristen was absolutely the best vendor we booked for our wedding day. She was recommended to us by a photographer friend. You spend basically the entire day with your photographer and we were so glad we picked her! She was so sweet and professional, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Our photos were absolutely beautiful, we’ve only seen our preview gallery so far but we cannot wait to see the rest! We cannot recommend her enough!

He was flexible with the 5 flower girls we had in and out of pictures and the multiple areas on our venue property.

I find joy in capturing love, hearing about how you met, and everything in between.

McKenna exceeded all of our expectations as a wedding photographer! She was so easy to communicate with. She made us feel super comfortable getting our pictures taken, and got so many amazing shots! She is super talented and got so many unique photos of us that we will cherish forever. We had people rave about her at our wedding saying how well she did working with everyone and how she added such positive energy to our day. We could not be happier with our experience working with 1828 Collective and would 100% recommend her to anyone!

We can not recommend Stephanie enought! From our first meeting, she made us feel incredibly comfortable and at ease, allowing us to be our authentic selves. On the wedding day, she provided the perfect amount of direction. Her warm personality and professional demeanor made everything feel effortless. Stephanie didn’t just take photos; she told a story. Her ability to document the love and connection between us, our family, and our friends was remarkable. If you're looking for a photographer who will make you feel comfortable and valued while capturing stunning photos, Stephanie is the one.

Makalya is one of a kind! She makes everything so special!! All of her conversations leading up to the big day were thoughtful and tailored to the theme/vibe of our wedding as well as us as a couple! She seriously made me feel like the only bride in the world and she had another wedding the same weekend as mine! Since getting married we have used her for family photos with our infant and Christmas photos too! Makalya’s talents stretch far beyond weddings and it absolutely shows!! Don’t wait to book her as your photographer because if you miss out on your date you will surely be sad.

I'm a big big fan of love, laughter, and DIY taco bars. As a Virginia Wedding Photographer I am so excited to share this space with current and future clients because this work is where my passion lives. I have not only built a business over the past few years, but I've built the best family/ support system a girl could ask for. I love fun energy and a good adventure, so don't be afraid to step out of the cozy field look to climb that mountain or get a little dirty. I’m here to make your dreams come true, furry friends included. All that being said I am out here doing what I love and thats capturing all types of moments.

I can’t say enough good things about Jade! Not only was she super fun to work with but she created a magical video of our wedding. I truly felt like I was reliving our wedding just by watching our highlight video! I will truly cherish these videos forever!

Stephanie and her husband are so wonderful. They recently covered my wedding and I couldn’t be happier! The sneak peak we got the day after the wedding has great pictures, and their personalities made the day even better. Stephanie knows how to take charge to get everything done quickly and efficiently, but in a very pleasant and kind way. I would like to especially shout out her husband for the help he provided on the day. He was holding my water, extra shoes, flowers, etc while doing our posed photos which made everything so much easier and calm for me. But even more important in my opinion, he rushed (literally ran) to my mom’s aid when she fell onto concrete immediately before we walked down the aisle. Everyone else had already walked down the aisle to the ceremony, so there was no one around that we knew, and he jumped right in to take care of her. For that act alone I could never thank these two enough. This review is getting long, but all in all, I recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Bethany not only helped us during rough times but was incredibly thoughtful and patient! I would absolutely recommend her services. The final photos for both our engagement photos and wedding photos were fantastic. She was so fun to work with and made us feel like we had been lifelong friends within the first few minutes of meeting her. Absolutely will use her for future photo needs!
