Check out Jontell’s website for her portfolio and all the rave reviews from her past clients. Here is one of our favorites: “Choosing a photographer was the one aspect of the wedding I was incredibly picky about. I wanted nice photos and I wanted to make sure I clicked with my photographer on a personal level since they spend the entire wedding day by your side. Jontell hit both requirements out of the park. Not only are her photos BEAUTIFUL, but she is so sweet and so fun to have around. I’m so happy I found her and she was able to photograph our wedding. I would absolutely recommend her – she’s reliable, responsive, professional, sweet as can be, and takes the best photos!”
2. Jamie Eppig Photography
A self-professed hopeless romantic, Jamie Eppig boasts a signature style that is an effortless blend of emotional, sentimental, and gorgeous. In fact, the mood is enhanced by her warm-hued editing style. Just flipping through her photos gives us all of the feels. We even notice that each shot stands on its own as a testament to true love. One of the top Richmond wedding photographers, Jamie is a thoughtful shutterbug who offers natural, lifestyle-inspired images.
We also adore how she characterizes her presence on your big day. “Working with me should feel like a luxury experience with a close friend, and afterward I’m not going to disappear on you. I’ve got your back from the moment you send that inquiry, and long after your wedding day is over. “
3. Kim Johnson Photography
Kim Johnson highlights your bond as the centerpiece of her work — i.e., she’s not simply showcasing the wedding but the love that lights you up. Her artistic style is light and airy, with an editorial feel, perfect for those who want an intuitive wedding photographer who understands how important the craft is. As a bride herself, Kim knows both the effort that goes into planning a wedding and the love that begs to be documented as keepsakes for years to come.
4. April and Austin of Massei Photography
If you have a sentimental streak mixed in with your appreciation of genuine moments, husband-and-wife powerhouse duo April and Austin are the Richmond wedding photographers of your dreams. Authenticity and a strong sense of style permeate their body of work. However, the main story throughout all of their images is the people in them. This duo also produces timeless work with a dash of trendy thrown in for the sake of keeping it modern.
5. Alex Krall Photography
It takes a well-honed, sensitive eye to cut through extraneous details and tell a story without visual clutter, and Alex Krall has exactly that skill set. Based in Richmond, she actually serves the entire DMV area. Her portfolio radiates an ultra-minimalist vibe with a fine-art refinement. She boats a “feminine, authentic style” that captures beautiful details and natural moments alike. If you have ever found yourself flipping through a wedding magazine and wanted the same elegant look often found within, Alex can make it happen.
6. Camden and Ashley of The Inmans
Full of passion for each other, life, and their art, Camden and Ashley are the perfect match in more ways than one! Ashley is full of personality and is sure to bring a smile to your face. Camden’s the sweet, sentimental one who is sure to focus on the tender moments of your wedding day.

7. Anna Kardos Photography
Anna Kardos emanates a sophisticated sensibility in her work — minimalist shots of details that are stylish without being fussy. We greatly appreciate the understated elegance in her styling. Simplicity is key in keeping the story on the love you and your significant other share. Ethereal bridal portraits, crisp bursts of color, and glowing white are signature elements of her refreshing approach to wedding photography. It’s modern, luxurious, and simply dazzling.
8. Omar Zeta
Omar Zeta is the very definition of a fine artist, allowing love to be the driving force of his creations. He started out as a street photographer, inspired by his desire to capture unfeigned moments and bits of life as it happened. As such, he brings that same sense to his work — a carefree, as-the-moment-is-unfolding type of vibe. He effortlessly blends the genuine emotion of a love story with his creativity, and the result is a truly remarkable body of work where joy and adoration are tangible. Omar works with a team of talented artists who together bring to life the vision of his distinct studio.
9. Stacie of Marshall Arts Photography
Offering a boutique experience to her couples, Stacie Marshall uses a special blend of documentary photography for those irreplaceable, candid moments. She also love naturally posed portraits, so you can be sure all the details can be pored over for years to come. Her love of travel is infused into much of her work, lending it an almost European countryside charm. We especially see this in her incorporation of architectural elements in images. If you have a love of florals alongside your love of your partner, check out Stacie’s work — it’s dreamy!
10. Kelly of Kaypea Photography
Kelly’s love of bright colors is evident throughout her work — vibrant blue skies, boldly colored florals, and perfectly contrasted color palettes are right up her alley. Especially noteworthy are her night portraits, which showcase her expertise using flash, as well as her artistic tastes — there are few things more gorgeous than the night sky and romantic twinkling lights! Plus, there is just something inherently atmospheric and romantic about the nighttime. Her day portraits are just as beautiful — full of all the glowing white and tenderness one can handle.
