Meet Sensational Vendor - Rhea Whitney Photography

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!

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.

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.

What inspired you to start Capturing Perfection? There was always a pull to capture stunning moments, whether people creating memories, landscape, and even food, so finally I put down my phone camera and decided to take the gift to the next level with a professional camera. Learning about all the possible techniques and settings created a drive that has elevated Capturing Perfection to our vision today.

What do you love most about photography? Photography truly is a means to reflect and savor a moment. When I look back on a moment and have a vivid picture of the details and emotions within the picture it makes all the difference. Our goal is to capture the essence of the present moment.

Do you have a favorite brand of camera/lenses? Personally, I prefer Canon products, as the user interface is a bit more user friendly. The lenses we use vary depending on the look we are trying to achieve. For example, if we are looking to capture a wide area, such as landscapes versus looking to get the details such as a “ring shot” for weddings. If I had to choose it would be the 24-70mm as it encompasses a very vast range all the way from wide angle to telephoto.

Give us a brief overview of your photography services. Capturing Perfection specializes in several photography genres, including product photography, corporate photography, engagement/wedding, event lifestyle, maternity, newborn, and portrait photography.

How far in advance should engaged couples try to book you for their engagement sessions and wedding photography? There's no time like the present, seeing as most weddings are often planned months to a year in advance we have weddings scheduled for 2016. We like to incorporate the engagement session into a package, which allows the couple to get comfortable in front of the camera, and allows us to learn more about the couple, tailoring our services to their needs. It also allows for our couples to be able to use the images for things like save the dates and keepsakes.

What sets Capturing Perfection apart from other photographers in the Washington, DC area? The friendliness and easygoing nature of the staff at Capturing Perfection is what makes it an effortless experience between the client-photographer relationship, and this key component makes it simple to capture those special moments. In addition, to the relaxed and professional nature of the photography environments, all images are edited in house to add that perfect touch, providing you with the best image quality.

How fun is it to work with your fiancee? It's pretty cool working with my fiancee, seeing as we both have various perspectives’ one person is able to capture a moment in a complimentary way to the others. This is one of the major reasons it’s great to have multiple photographers. With us having a connection we are able to see something as simple as each other’s facial expression and know what we can do to help each other create the perfect look, true definition of a help-mate.
