I have been a photographer for more years than I’d like to admit… It all started when I was a little girl, with a pink plastic camera, a roll of Kodak film and a couple of geese I could not look away from. Things got a bit more serious in college, as I travelled around Chile (where I lived at the time), photographing its amazing landscapes and people – ask me about Patagonia sometime. I took a break from my camera to get a law degree and explore the corporate world. But I couldn’t stay away for long. I decided to make it official and got a Photography degree from the Center for Digital Imaging Arts of Boston University. During that time I discovered wedding photography and there was no turning back. Capturing the emotion and joy of two people joining their lives, and the celebration of their love with friends and family - it's simply the best job in the world.
Each year, we choose between one and three wedding vendors from several different categories to feature as our “handpicked” vendors. For 2013, winners were chosen through the Chesapeake Bridal Awards. Based on their phenomenal work in the wedding industry, strong reputations, and incredible talent, we feel that these are some of the best in the Chesapeake area. For 2013, these bridal and wedding shops have earned our Handpicked seal of approval!
