  • Ever After Visuals | Ever After Portraits |

    A mother-and-daughter photography team, we specialize in the celebration of relationships through photography. We are both international-award-winning photojournalists who have received recognition for our pure and natural documentation-style photography. What do we shoot? We shoot love, wedding love, baby love and family love. We Love being with people in love - whether its your fiance, your new baby or your family. Our boutique studio experience is designed for clients who value the art of photography that will tell their unique love story in a custom way. After all, what could be more important than the ones you love? It's what we like to call "Relationship Photography." Located in Sterling, Virginia, we have both an indoor studio and a 2.5-acre outdoor studio. Most households have a pair of scissors, but if you want a haircut with style, you go to a salon. Similarly, anyone with a camera can take a picture, but it takes talent, experience and a special degree of sensitivity to create an image that stirs the emotions, capturing the lifestyle you live with the ones you love. Our philosophy is to create a photographic experience which will provide unique and exciting art for your home, art which will eventually become family heirlooms to pass down to the coming generations. Our number one goal is to capture your personality while creating unique and interesting images with a combination of fashionable posing and creative lighting. We are storytellers, photojournalists, and we will document the love and relationships with your mate, your family and your friends. We'll be looking for the love, the emotion and the detail that makes your story uniquely yours. Our philosophy is: Time moves so fast, photography stops it. We are storytellers, photojournalists and we will document the love and relationships with your mate, your family, your friends - we'll be looking for the love, the emotion and the detail that makes your story uniquely yours. Then we preserve it by telling your story in products as unique as you are - whether it is life wall art featuring you and you loved ones or a custom-designed family yearbook album. Let us capture your moments - ever after.

  • Aimee Buxton Photography

    I am a newborn, baby, and child photographer specializing in fine art portraits of your favorite little people. I love photographing your child skipping in mud puddles, throwing a tantrum, staring soulfully into the camera, or giving me the cheesiest grin known to man. I believe in photos being blown up big on your wall. I believe that newborn lips are kissable. I also believe that all newborns look totally different from one another and that baby bottoms are the cutest thing in this world. I think that a moody toddler with wild hair is an amazing little person. Your child and I could have a lot of fun exploring the outdoors or making silly faces at each other in my home studio. I also love taking photos of parents and children interacting -- raw and uninhibited. I can make you feel sexy in your own skin as you cuddle your new little one skin to skin. I would love to start a relationship with you and your child.

  • Jon W. Miller Photography

    I am a freelance photographer serving the Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia areas. I specialize in weddings, engagements, and portraits. If I had to define my style, I would say it comes close to a "documentary" style of photography, but I prefer to let you look at my work and let the images define my style. I am not a photographer who is going to have (or want) a massive list of posed shots. I try to balance the number of posed shots with natural shots but especially when I photograph a wedding. I prefer to be capturing the moment as opposed to directing the moment. When in doubt about something I do, just ask. I'm more than happy to talk with you!

  • Scott Fracasso Photography

    I have always been fond of photography, but have grown passionate about every picture I take and present to others. What drives my desire to take great pictures is the reward of seeing the reaction of those who enjoy viewing them, whether it's a picture of a family member, pet, landmark, landscape, event, or something as simple as a single autumn leaf or a bird. I enjoy capturing and presenting things that people have never seen before as much as I do capturing things that people walk or drive past everyday without ever stopping to really notice or appreciate. It always amazes me the reactions I get from people who are presented with a picture of something that would not ordinarily draw their attention, yet are instantly drawn in because of the picture's composition and detail that awakens their interest; it happens to myself all the time. Wherever I go in my daily travels, I find myself looking at everything as if through the eye of a camera. At the end of the day, I hope my pictures have added something to your lives, even if just a small amount of awareness, curiosity or emotion, and ultimately memories that will last a lifetime. Just recently, I have added two new services to offering art photography, children and family portrait photography and equestrian photography: 1) My philosophy on portrait photography: Capturing the essence of everything I shoot, including people, is the most powerful way to tell a story. While 'posed' photographs still have a place and purpose, capturing people in the midst of 'just being themselves' almost always creates greater impact and emotion, and leaves even longer lasting memories. I offer services outdoors, indoors, naturally lit, or with set lighting at recommended locations or locations of your choice. 2) I'm excited to be able to offer equestrian photography as a service to customers in Northern VA and MD. If you have a need or desire for equestrian photos (horse show competitions, horse portraits, dressage, etc.), give me a call or use the contact tab at the top of the screen to inquire. Pricing I have taken a simplistic approach in custom photography in that I charge a flat hourly fee per photo session ($150 per hour) and then offer you the opportunity to purchase however many high-resolution, post-processed images in digital format from a password-protected gallery set up just for you and whomever you decide to share it with. Forget about having to decide from a myriad of packages prior to or at the time of the shoot. You simply pay the hourly fee at the end of the shoot and purchase whatever pictures from the shoot you want, in any size available, whenever you want, and as many copies as you desire. Your precious images will be archived, safe and available for future use as long as you want. Please understand that I professionally edit all of your images individually before they are uploaded into your private gallery. This means that each picture is color corrected, sharpened, saturated, and cropped (if needed) perfectly to achieve the most desirable presentation. Many photographers do not perform this crucial step, batch process this step, or charge extra for it. I believe that every picture requires individual attention to detail and process each and every one separately. This streamlined approach allows you and your loved ones to get these beautiful images from your session delivered quickly and whenever you want simply by ordering directly from your gallery. My website offers artistic prints, customized framed and matted prints, canvas prints, prints on metal, prints on acrylic, and greeting cards.

  • Angelina's Photograpghy

    I am a 25-year old woman who loves taking photos. Art therapy is my major, and my concentration is photography, and drawing. I take pictures of family portraits, engagements, weddings, seniors, proms, pets, infants, landscapes, and wildlife. On Facebook, you can look up "Angelina Marie Wolf Photography". If you are wondering what's the difference between my photography business and others, well, let me help you here. 1) When it comes to money, I charge differently. Many photographers will have a base price. I ask you a few questions about how long, how many pictures (for me to edit), and what location for me to travel. I then think about what would be reasonable for you and myself. If you have more questions about this or want to know my past prices, just ask. 2) I am very organized. I will ask you many questions about the look, theme, tattoos, location, etc. to make sure my ast. and myself can be prepared and can feel easy for your photo shoot. 3) I am a very relaxed but upbeat person. I will try to make you feel apart of my family while I take as many pictures of you and possibly for your family. I understand that you want the best pictures possible while still having a fun time! My goal is to make everyone see a story in each of my pictures. This requires a lot of my time and work on my part. I need to be knowledgeable of the location, props, cultures, ages, events, and much more. I each of my photo shoots, I try to bring props. I will care for you, and I will also bring out laughter.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Breathe Easy Photo

(30 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I absolutely love my clients and the entire process of meeting and getting to know them on a personal level. Seeing them transition from infancy to being a toddler is such an exciting and rewarding process; it's hard not to feel like part of the family. The freedom and flexibility of my job is always nice, and being able to run around outdoors and enjoy the sunshine with my clients while having fun is what makes my job that much sweeter. My client's reaction to seeing my work, to seeing their wedding or family through my lens is always magical and certainly rewarding on it's own.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was the girl who had a camera put into her hands at thirteen and felt the world shift a little. Photography has been a passion of mine that is constantly transforming and reshaping my life in ways I never thought possible. I had a wonderful photography teacher who twisted my arm into trying portrait photography. At the time I was not at all interested, but after that initial try I immediately fell in love.
