"I strive to create images that capture the essence of of my clients and their loved ones in a way that is fun and not stressful for them."
Hi! I'm Katherine Weeks a portrait and wedding photographer based in Locust Grove, VA. I am the wife a now retired firefighter, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a fairy godmother to two of the sweetest little girls ever.
I have studied photography through courses by the New York Institute of Photography and I continue to learn and educate myself through photography workshops and online education through the Professional Photographer's of America.
The joy of photography really sparked for me when I read the words "photography shows people what's important to us". I feel like this isn't just another slogan or quote, but words that are very true. Whether it's a professional photo or a snap shot, the pictures we make are memories of people, places, and events. The photographs we make or get made show others the details of our lives that mean something to us. The things we want to remember. Photographs are a form of communication. They are visual stories of ourselves and the world we live in. Photographs can elicit emotion. Happiness, sadness, excitement, anger, love, joy. We can feel all of these through photographs. Photography is about preserving moments in time, moments that when put together tell our stories as people. I love telling my own stories through photography and I really love helping other people tell their stories though photography.
My photographic style has been described by others as being beautiful, heartwarming and classic.
You can see some of the things my client's have said about what it's like to work with me HERE.
I really would love to connect with you so we can have some fun making images that help tell the story of you and your loved ones. Maybe we'll tell a story of new friendship in the process!
