Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today, I am spotlighting an amazing lady, who is not only a wedding photographer, but she also does lifestyle photography. I can personally vouch for her work, as I had the pleasure of being in front of her lens for the Sensational Soirees photoshoot in September. Working with Rhea, owner of Rhea Whitney Photography, was an absolute joy. The energy, attention and creativity she brought to my shoot was awesome, not mention we had so much fun. She totally understood the Sensational Soirees brand, and I couldn't be more happy with my new shots! Whether you are a couple planning to say I do, in need of newborn photos or looking for new brand images, I highly suggest checking out Rhea Whitney Photography.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Rhea and learning all about her booming photography business. She was so kind to let me share the interview, and some of her work today on the blog!
Meet Rhea of Rhea Whitney Photography
What inspired you to start your business?
I have always loved to take pictures; even as a child, I always had a camera in my hand. The inspiration for starting my business came while taking a professional photography course. The course allowed me to learn more about the industry and that this could in fact be a successful, full-time business.
When did you decide to go full-time?
In April of this year, and it was definitely a push from God!
What do you love most about photography?
I love being able to capture people during their most special and memorable moments and creating images that last forever. Whether it’s a business building their brand or a couple getting married, I just love capturing beautiful imagery and occasions.
Do you have a favorite brand of camera?
Nikon honey! Yes!
Give us a brief overview of your photography services.
I'm a portrait and wedding photographer. I pretty much do everything from corporate clients’ head shots and events, brand images for entrepreneurs, family portraits, special events, and everything weddings from engagement pictures to bridal showers to the full wedding day.
How far in advance should engage couples book?
I always suggest for clients to book months in advance; earlier the better. 2016 is already filling up fast.
What sets you apart from other photographers in this area?
Personality mixed with my technical knowledge of photography. I’m in tune with details, lighting, and poses, and my overall ability to vibe with my clients is a plus. I’m proud to be a female photograpHER and my ability to find beauty in everything.
Kudos to this awesome #photograpHER based right here in the DMV (and she travels, too)!
