MEET hannah

You must be here because you’re looking for someone to document your wedding or another season in your life. There are thousands of photographers out there, so I want to make sure we’re the perfect fit for each other. 

My approach is unposed and real . Let’s get those tears rolling from laughter and the inner adventurer released for a session scaling rocks, climbing fences and wading waters. I want to know the essence of your relationship, what gets your heart beating the fastest and what makes you 'you' at your core. 

Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Oh, why hello there dreamer.

Documentary style photography based in Charlottesville, va

I would love to hear from you. Send me a message and let's get in touch!

Think we would be a good match?

Hello there, I’m Hannah. I’m a wedding photographer based among the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, Virginia. I believe we all have a purpose on this earth, and mine is to preserve stories. After shooting my first wedding, I finally heard my calling. This is what I was meant to do. When I’m not shooting weddings or portraits, you can probably find me hollowing out a jar of Nutella, examining maps, pondering the universe or accumulating a menagerie of plants for my bedroom. 

Although based in Charlottesville, photography has taken me to many parts of the world and has left me with an insatiable travel bug. I am inspired by unfamiliar environments and being a conscientious observer, I always find myself fascinated by what I discover and experience in new places.. That being said, my bags are packed and I’d love to head out on a road trip and come your way. I welcome all people with love and an open heart just as I welcome an open road. 

Get to know me.

MEET hannah

much like the veins of a petal or the roots of an elm. Each is deserving of preservation, care and attention. As a photographer, my north star is to document time in an authentic, artistic way. It is my honor to be a listener and a translator of peoples’ stories, from the large moments to the small, in between ones. To be a photographer is, as I see it, to give testimony in photo form to the origins of a tale. Hans Christian Andersen said, "Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale." He told the human experience through words. I tell the human experience through photographs

Human lives are intricate and purposeful...

It is my honor to share from a quiet but observant distance the undertaking of an adventure on this planet that brings delight to not only the subjects of my art, but also those that take the time to appreciate wonder everywhere. I want my work with you to be akin to capturing fireflies in a jar. To appreciate things that often feel out of grasp, but with patience, tending, and care become the most beautiful parts of any avenue.

The tales we tell ourselves, our family, and our friends can often be better told with few or no words. The intention of capturing beauty through care is the most important part of preserving stories. I would be honored to nurture your stories through my art in the same delicate manner one would catch a firefly.

What kind of equipment to you use?
I currently use a 5D mark III, 35 mm Sigma Art (hands down favorite lens of all time, it is oh-so versatile), 20 mm Sigma, 85 Sigma, and a 50 mm Canon.

Do you travel?
Far and wide, people. Bags are packed, passport is ready. I'm based in Charlottesville, but am always willing to head out for a road trip. 

What do you charge?
Send me some more details about your wedding day or portrait session idea here and we can chat pricing!

Do engagement sessions come with a wedding booking?
Absolutely! Each wedding booking comes with a complimentary engagement session. It's extremely important for me to get to know my couples, and vice versa, before the big day. Time spent together prior to the wedding will allow me to tailor how I photograph your day to tell your story more authentically. 

Are you licensed and insured?
You bet!

How do you classify your style?
I classify my work as an accurate representation of each human's experience. I honor the way each of my client's wishes their story to be told. That is absolute end goal for me. As far as aesthetics in my work goes, I incorporate soft tones, golden-golds, and film-like dramatic black + whites.

How long does it take to receive my wedding gallery?
Typically, delivery of gallery will take between 4-6 weeks. I'm quite a perfectionist when it comes to providing my best possible work for my clients, so I deliver as soon as I can but not until I'm happy with the quality of the final product. 

Do you offer albums or prints?
Albums and prints can be added a la carte with any package

How far out should I book my wedding?
I don’t book more than a year out, typically, but let’s get your date on the calendar ASAP!

How do I book with you?
Easy! Drop me a note and we'll chat what option is the best for preserving your story. I absolutely can't wait to meet you!

Questions & Answers

She is absolutely wonderful and was so kind, helpful and accommodating leading up to our wedding. During our engagement photos and the day of our wedding she made us feel at ease in front of the camera and I knew that she had captured some wonderful moments. But I was absolutely blown away by our gallery! Hannah worked so hard to make sure that every detail of our wedding was captured and delivered the most beautiful pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Hannah, we can’t thank you enough!

"I don’t even have the words to explain how happy we are that we chose Hannah to be our wedding photographer. "

We feel so lucky to have Hannah as our photographer for our wedding! We just did our engagement photos with her and we are in LOVE with them (and so is everyone else!). She's so sweet and did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable in front of the camera.

"The photos really captured ~us~ which meant everything to my fiance and me."

I've known Hannah for a little over a year and a half now and have always been impressed by her work - so when it came time to choose an engagement photographer, I knew that I had to book her! She was very accommodating with the date - my fiancé and I live out of town and were only near her for one weekend, and she was very flexible - and was very communicative regarding contract and payment. The actual photoshoot was fabulous - not only did we frolic through gorgeous fields, Hannah put on music and made us feel like we were in a movie. We were both relaxed the whole time and felt like we could really be ourselves in front of the camera. Of course, the best part of working with Hannah was the photos - so very raw and full of emotion. 

"My fiancé and I both agreed that the way she captured us is truly ART, and we are so grateful!"

Hannah is AMAZING! We couldn't be any happier with Hannah and the service she provided to us. She was extremely professional, very responsive, and great to work with - and most of all we LOVED her photos. I am so happy with our decision to use Hannah and how she captured our day in such a beautiful way that we will remember forever.

"Her photos captured one of the best days of our life, and will be with us forever."

The thing I love most about working with Hannah is that it's clear that she loves her art and capturing moments. My boyfriend and I have done a couple of shoots with Hannah and every time we're so impressed with how comfortable she can make you feel in front of the camera. We absolutely have loved our photos and the genuine "us" feel of them.

"Highly recommend Hannah when it comes to capturing those moments you want to remember forever."
