Photography is an art and an opportunity to capture the character and unique beauty of each subject. My style is simple elegance.

A good photograph is not only a record of an event or a face it should tell a story and provide an insight into the personality of each individual. It should capture that special moment or fleeting expression...it should talk to you! I like to take a more natural, unobtrusive approach to photographing weddings to capture the special and candid moments.

Anne Lord Photography services the Northern Virginia and DC metro area, providing an artistic service based upon your unique photographic requirements.

Anne and second shooter Brian photographed my daughter’s wedding recently. They were a pleasure to work with! Not only were the photos awesome (we expected that, haha), but we enjoyed Anne’s personality, flexibility and originality throughout the whole process. As an owner of a service business myself, I really appreciated how efficiently she runs her studio – she delivered finished photos on time (even a day early!) and always got back to us very promptly, never making us feel like we were bothering her. She was always available by email during the planning process to help with the silly questions brides and their mothers have, and offered advice when appropriate. Anne and Brian captured not only my daughter and son-in-law at their best, but family and guests and details as well. We will treasure the photos and the memories forever. Thanks Anne and Brian!!

An unbelievable experience! Anne made my wedding day seamless with zero stress! She is quick and produces amazing photos. There were so many I loved I couldn't even narrow it down to 100 for my wedding album! She responds quickly, has a great personality and her prices are beyond reasonable! I would recommend her to anyone, she's awesome!

When I started looking for wedding vendors, my husband and I agreed that the most important vendor is the photographer. After all, not many people will remember what they ate at the wedding or what music was played, but the pictures will last forever. We could not have been more thrilled with choosing Anne Lord as our photographer. She responds super quickly to all emails, always on top of paperwork and contracts but not at all in a nagging way, and was super easy to work with. I don't know how many times throughout the planning process I said to my husband "I would lose my mind if it weren't for Anne Lord!" We also had a few requests that deviated from her standard contract and she was willing to comply with our needs. She works very quickly and efficiently (we ended up with over 2000 photos from our wedding) but without sacrificing quality. Our engagement and wedding photos are all amazing. I felt that the price we paid for her services was absolutely worth every penny. Choosing Anne Lord as our photographer was probably the best planning decision we could have made for our wedding.

I was so pleased upon receiving my engagement and wedding photos from Anne. I think she is an amazing photographer, and offered the best value for a wedding photography package I have found in the Northern VA area for such beautiful work! Anne's 2nd photographer, Brian, was fabulous as well. Anne is efficient with the family shots and very experienced...be sure to leave plenty of time for the details. We were fortunate enough to have some time for bridal portraits in Anne's lovely garden and am so glad we did! I have received so many compliments on those shots and know we will cherish them as wonderful memories of the day.

We started working with Anne for our engagement photos. We were able to have our dog Duke in the photos, and they turned out great. It was very important to us to have our photographer be pet friendly, especially since he was with us for pictures on our wedding day. Her garden is perfect for engagement photos and is right on the lake in her backyard.

Anne and her team captured every single moment of my wedding day. From the moments of getting ready to dancing the night away. We had a Fall wedding and really wanted to get the leaves in the photos as much as possible. She really captured the images I already had in my head. The leaves and garden we went to turned into beautiful pictures. We got so many compliments on them. If you are looking for someone with years of experience and being able to capture the pictures you have in mind for your dream wedding, Anne Lord and her team is a perfect fit for your wedding day!

I first met Anne when she photographed my sister's wedding, and I knew without a doubt that she'd be the one I chose for my wedding, too. She extremely responsive, punctual and makes you feel very comfortable. She works with you to get your best angle and smile. Not to mention the final pictures are flawless! I would definitely recommend her to bride.

We wholeheartedly recommend Anne Lord Photography for anyone who wants to be absolutely delighted with quality, professional and stunning pictures, album and DVD with music that capture the beauty and spirit of your special day. There is a huge difference between ordinary and extraordinary. Anne Lord Photography completely delivered an extraordinary experience and results. Anne, Jeremy and James have an "eye" for the special moments and angles that visually and artistically communicated the interplay of family, friends, emotion and place of our wedding that we will always treasure and enjoy. If you want to work with genuinely wonderful people with great skill, experience and passion, you need to look no further than Anne Lord Photography.

My daughter and I met Anne at a Bridal Show. We were instantly drawn to her display of photograhs. After talking to her about her photo packages and prices, we booked her that night. It was very nice that on the wedding day, there were two photographers to capture all the intimate details of the bride and groom getting dressed and that one photographer did not have to split their time between the two. Anne took some incredible detail pictures that I would never have thought of. The slide show that is part of the package is set to the music of the first dance of husband and wife and the photos she picks are just amazing and I don't know how she does it because there are a TON of them to choose from. It is also nice that they pass out the wallet size engagement photos at the reception with their login information on the back so that when the photos are available, the guests can login and view and/or order any photos if they wish. Also, the engagement and weedding photos were posted on-line days before they were due to be posted. I would highly recommend Anne Lord Photography to anyone looking for a photographer that is professional, unobtrosive and her package price is very reasonable and will not break your wedding budget. She is more than willing to work with you and your wishes. My daughter even had her dog in her engagement pictures. Once the pictures are posted and the slide show is complete, you will receive a thumb drive with all the Hi-Res photos and the slide show, which you will cherish forever. I can't thank Anne and her assistant enough for helping to make my daughter's wedding so special that will last a lifetime.

Anne Lord and her team did an amazing job photographing our wedding! Anne is a seasoned professional, she captured the perfect shots while remaining non obtrusive. We received more photos then we thought we would, there were a ton! Everyone who has seen the photos mentioned how amazing they look. We could not be happier with the service Anne had provided, she responded quickly to emails and phone calls and catered to our schedules to make sure that we were satisfied at all times. I would recommend Anne to anyone who is looking for a stellar wedding photographer or a photographer for any occasion. Anne is simply the best!!!!

My husband and I truly enjoyed working with Anne Lord Photography for our wedding. Anne is a wonderful business owner - very professional, and has a lovely personality. She was helpful in the planning stages - all the way up to the day before the wedding. Her second photographer, Jeremy took our photographs on the day-of. Jeremy is also very professional and was extremely comfortable to work with. He is very personable. Jeremy made it so easy for the two of us to relax and not focus so much on the camera(s). He truly captured everything! Anne took my bridal portraits at her studio. She made me feel so beautiful in front of the camera. She really listens to your ideas - on what kind of "look" you want from your portraits, but she also provides a lot of suggestions which is helpful.

Our wedding photographs are so beautiful - we have them framed all throughout our home. So many of our guests comment on how beautiful they turned out. We will contract with Anne Lord Photography for family portraits, etc. in the future.

Thank you so much, Anne and Jeremy. Our wedding was magical, and you captured all of the beauty of our special day!

Anne did an absolutely WONDERFUL job! She was just incredible to work with. I was a little bit slow in booking Anne Lord Photography, so by the time I did, Anne herself was already booked for another wedding. We trusted her when she said she had two really great staff members to cover our wedding - Jeremy and James. And she was right, they were great!! Anne was actually kind enough to offer to come do the getting ready shots at my parents house, while Jeremy and James handled the wedding photos. All of the pictures are incredible, and they took a ton! Not only were Jeremy and James incredibly professional, but our guests continue to tell us how nice and personable they were.

The entire package was great and very affordable, ESPECIALLY considering what we got with the package -- engagement photos, a full day of wedding coverage, wallet-sized engagement photos handed out at the wedding so guests could order wedding prints online, a thumb drive with all of the wedding photos, and a slide show..... we are very happy and highly recommend Anne Lord Photography to all of the other brides-to-be out there!

Bride: I was really happy with them. They are very particular and pay attention to detail. One thing, they will hand out small photos of you and your soon-to-be-spouse at the reception from the engagement shoot. It was a lovely wedding favor. Jeremy, our lead, was amazing. He was really funny and kept us laughing. Our guests liked them too, we actually had a few say so as well. The final result was very good. Anne uses a great design company and the spreads were fantastic. The final album was also very nice. We both recommend them. You will be very pleased!

Groom: We had two photographers, Jeremy and James. Jeremy (the lead) was very personable. He made us feel at ease. With two, we each got our own photographer. I was able to have photos of my morning before the ceremony. I was very happy with the albums, they were of excellent quality.

Anne and Brian did an amazing job leading up to the wedding, the big day itself and after the wedding. Anne will meet with you to discuss exactly what you want and how best to implement your vision.

The day of, Anne and Brian were on time and very professional. Anne made sure that my husband and I were comfortable and got all the pictures we wanted done in a timely manner so we could go enjoy ourselves. During the ceremony and reception, Anne and Brian blended into the background and you were only aware of them when there was a photo opportunity such as cutting the cake. Before they left, they checked to make sure nothing was missed.

I would highly recommend Anne to anyone who is looking for get pictures on a budget!

Anne Lord was recommended to us by another photographer who was unavailable to do our wedding and boy did we get lucky! In addition to the phenomenal job that Jeremy and James did at our wedding (the photos were great, their personalities were upbeat and energetic and very professional) Anne herself was very hands on. She was extremely responsive to all phone calls and emails and so easy to work with. The icing on the cake for us was the fact that all of the photographers that we interviewed indicated that they would not have our pictures ready for several weeks following our wedding - Anne had them online the following Wednesday. And as part of her services she sent a cd and thumb drive with all of our pictures and a wonderful slideshow of our wedding to us within weeks. We were so pleased with Anne's services and highly recommend her!

Anne was a pleasure to work with. I met with one other photographer about a year before our wedding and she did not try to discourage me from bridal portraits which are a southern tradition. She offered an engagement shoot with the photos to get to know the couple before the wedding day which was great. We were planning to do those anyways so to have it all included was nice. She was very responsive to emails, and would help me with any questions I had. She loves animals and was great when we decided to bring our dog to the outdoor reception area of our wedding. I would defintely recommend her for weddings or any other photography needs.

I chose Anne Lord to complete both my engagement photos and wedding photos. I could not have made a better decision! Anne is one of the sweetest, down to earth, extremely professional people I have ever met. After the initial meeting with Anne at her home, my husband and I were immediately convinced that she was the photographer for us. It seemed like she totally “got us” and knew exactly what I wanted without even having to fully explain ourselves. We immediate booked her on the spot for our June wedding. I was a Bride that loved pictures, I wanted so many and wanted a photographer that wouldn’t let me down. Anne fully exceeded my expectations. She was very organized prior to the wedding and asked for a list of every additional photo I wanted to have taken and made a checklist for herself so she wouldn’t forget. One thing I loved about Anne and her staff was that you never knew they were there taking pictures. They blended into the wedding and reception so well but were able to produce over 1000 pictures. Every time I contacted Anne, she was almost immediate to respond and never had me worried once. Anne will not disappoint any future bride and will be sure to give you photos that you will love and cherish for the rest of your life!

Anne Lord was of the highest caliber of professionalism before, during and post wedding! We were fortunate to have Jeremy and James photograph the pre-wedding, wedding and reception. And even though Anne had another engagement later in the day, she came to photograph the girls getting ready! The photos are spectacular and we are now working with her to create albums.

Seriously, 5 stars isn't enough. Anne Lord Photography was wonderful!!! We had a GREAT experience. They were fun to work with and so professional. My two best friends had Anne Lord take their wedding photos too and we ALL LOVE our wedding pictures. On your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect. Having multiple photographers ensured that every special moment was captured beautifully. They worked so hard. They were never in the way, yet somehow were always there to capture each moment of our wedding day. So talented... I highly recommend Anne Lord.

Anne Lord did our engagement and wedding photos. We couldn't be happier. She and Brian were great. And the photos came out amazing. My favorite thing that she did was something i had not asked for or seen before, she took individual pictures of everyone/couples at the reception. This was a huge surprise and gift because we could see everyone being happy and enjoying themselves on our wedding day. And had a photo to include in our thank you notes to everyone who attended. I have been at several weddings and none of the other photographers have done that.

She also was great at finding the perfect setting for pictures. We have some beautiful impromptu photos that i will cherish forever because of Anne and Brian's creativity. i dot know how she gets some of the photos she does but she is definitely worth booking.

Apart from her great photography talent Anne was early to our house to get a feel for the place and was courteous and organized. Her package and pricing is very reasonable you get a lot for your money. I was very happy with the results.

Anne was spectacular! We couldn't have been more pleased with her attention to detail, flexibility, professionalism and photos - yes the photos - were terrific. She and her crew captured not only the expected moments, but those special moments when the subject wasn't looking at the camera.
Those are the most treasured pictures because they communicate the anticipation, joy and happiness of the event. Her turn-around time for posting photos is impressive and most appreciated. I would definitely contract her (and have) for other work. She does a beautiful job for photography used for businesses, school brochures and marketing materials.

If I had to describe my experience with Anne in one word it would be 'Perfect'. Not only was she flexible, but she was a delight to interact with. Once we saw the images for the engagement shoot it took us months to figure out which hi-res image we wanted for free, and when we saw the wedding photos we had a terrible time narrowing our favorites from 350 to 80 for the album. Needless to say, in the words of my husband, having too many favorites is a good problem to have, and it says a lot about the photographer.

Hiring Anne to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. We interviewed about a dozen wedding photographers in the DC, VA, and MD area and none was as flexible, honest, organized and responsive as Anne was. In short, she was everything a bride could ever hope for when looking for a professional photographer.

We didn't have a wedding planner as I was trying to cut costs and I'm glad I didn't hire one because Anne was so organized and efficient that she basically moved the timing of events along. The one thing that I really like about her is that she responds quickly with any email/questions I may have. Her pricing was also better than a lot of other professional wedding photographers in the area (considering that she's been a pro at this, we were actually surprised that she didn't charge more).

After our wedding, we had a hard time choosing our photos for our slideshow and it took me a while to get back to her. She was patient with me throughout the process and advised me well on how I should go about choosing my photos. I love our DVD slideshow from Anne more than the video we got from our videographer. Go with Anne, you'll never regret it.

Anne Lord's skill as a photographer is superb and her professionalism was top notch. When I first saw examples of her work, I knew that we wanted to book her for our fall wedding. Anne works with a 2nd photographer and between the two of them, there are over 1000 wonderful photos from our recent Oct 2012 wedding. Anne's basic package includes an engagement session (using her property in Reston, VA as a backdrop) which helped my husband and I become more comfortable in front of the camera. I'm excited to work with Anne to create a wedding album of our dreams. I would highly recommend Anne Lord Photography to any one in the greater Washington, DC area.

My experience working with Anne Lord Photography has been everything I expected out of professional photographers. For our wedding day, our photographers were Jeremy and James who provided the best service and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfect. They showed up early to the Chapel, were prepared with extra equipment, worked well with my wedding guests, and were extremely professional during my ceremony and throughout the evening. I had several comments from my guests that Jeremy and James were great photographers and they worked very well with each other. Prior to our wedding day, we had an engagement session with Jeremy which gave us a chance to talk about logistics for the day and expectations. It really helps to make the day-of go smoothly. Additionally, I had a bridal portrait session with Anne in her studio and thoroughly enjoyed the chance to have a trial-run in my dress. I would highly recommend Anne's services to those around me and will certainly work with her in the future when I'm interested in more photo sessions!

I was an out of state bride and found out about Anne Lord Photography from the church I was having my wedding at. They had been impressed by her and was the only recommendation they gave me. I was not disappointed. When we were briefly in town a couple of months before, she shot an engagement session. And then for the wedding day, she was great. The pictures are wonderful and you can tell she knows what she is doing and has lots of experience on what to shoot, how to shoot it and how to make things look better. I could not be more pleased by the pictures she took and know my husband and our families and friends will enjoy these for years to come.

I highly recommend Anne! My husband and I knew we wanted her to be our photographer the instant we met her. Not only are our photographs beautiful, but she is such a pleasure to work with. She is organized, professional, responsive, experienced, patient, and fun! She also takes a lot of pride in her art and works so hard to make sure your pictures are beautiful and you have the shots you want. Also, her prices are very reasonable, especially since it includes a complimentary engagement session. Speaking of which, I brought my dog to the engagement session and Anne was so sweet to her and patient as my dog ran around the place. Thank you for everything, Anne!

I Love Anne and her work. And her assistants!
To start off, my husband does not like his picture taken. When we did our engagement shoot we got to practice and he, though still not excited about it, was the most comfortable in front of the camera that I've ever seen... and Anne coached him gently so he felt like he was "doing a good job."
On our big day, we had a potential bump in the road-- a heavy storm (tornado was sighted!) that blocked one of her assistants and at one point the hotel had a power outage... but despite the dark weather and time crunch once the assistant arrived they were still able get all of the GORGEOUS photos we wanted before the ceremony and we still had time to spare before walking down the aisle.
Anne was also able to corral easily distracted family members (grown up and children!) and elegantly take charge when needed to get great photos and keep the timeline moving.

We love all of the pictures. Both my husband and I enjoyed taking photos with Anne and her assistant(s) and aside from our individual portraits and formal shots, we don't remember seeing them around the room at all! They fit right in with the guests and they do their best to document everyone at the party. I told Anne they were like photography ninjas!
(and she also stayed late with her assistnt to make up the time lost in the beginning, even though it was completely out of their control and they still got everything done as planned!)

Finally, Anne hands out wallet size photos of your engagement photos at the reception so the guests have instructions on how to view the photos. And they are up FAST!!! definitely faster than she promised.

I recommend Anne Lord Photography to everyone! She is a true pro.

You can't go wrong with Anne. The many, many 5-star reviews on this website are a testament to the uniformly positive experiences brides have had with her. Perhaps what still could use highlighting, though, is just how good a value Anne's services is. With Anne, you get top-notch photography, gorgeous prints, and at a cost that is much more reasonable than many if not most photographers in the DC area. Though my now-husband may be one of the most photo-phobic people she ever worked with, Anne managed to make him as comfortable in front of the camera as I've ever seen. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Anne and her assistant did a wonderful job. We met Anne in advance and did our engagement photos with her and were very pleased. We also booked a photo booth through Anne. That was a huge hit with our guests and we are still receiving compliments. Anne and her assistant took well over 2000 photos during the wedding and had them available for viewing shortly after the wedding. She handed out wallet size photos from our engagement photos to our guests during the reception with the website and password so guests can view our wedding photos. I loved this. It alleviates the pressure of having everyone asking you about pictures. Another wonderful quality about Anne is her kindness and personality. While she is very professional and is strict to keeping you on your timeline (you will appreciate this, trust me)she truly is a fantastic photographer who captures wonderful shots. We are beyond pleased with our photos. One additional note, Anne offers a guest book which she uses photos from your engagement session. It was a unique idea that we loved and a great way to have photos in a book with great memories from our special day

Anne Lord's talent is amazing, we are so happy with our photographs from our June 23, 2012 wedding! Our wedding was done in a historic the historic church in Leesburg and her photos captured this perfectly with no details left out! Our reception at the Oatlands Plantation was the perfect backdrop for both candid and spontanious shots. The quality and professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness were so impressive. A++++ job!!

The photos are the most important part of the wedding since the day goes by so fast. I let my husband pick the photographer since he enjoys photography himself and had more of an idea what to look for. We could not be more happy with our pictures. That is saying a lot because I rarely like pictures of myself. Anne is a pleasure to work with and I can't give her enough stars for responsiveness (we usually got an email back within minutes of sending them).

We are so pleased that we decided to go with Anne Lord Photography for our wedding. Jeremy and his assistant James were absolutely fantastic! We decided after our first meeting with Jeremy and Anne that we did not need to look at anyone else for a photographer. Their professionalism and quality of work really stood out to us. Jeremy paid a lot of attention to detail, and captured so many amazing shots even in a challenging space. My guests are still amazed at how many photos were taken at our wedding! We highly recommend using Anne and Jeremy for any event!

If you are looking for a top notch photographer look no further! My husband and I have some close friends that used Anne as their wedding photographer and I loved their photos. After seeing how amazing their photos turned out , to have Anne take our photos was a no brainer. The package that we chose included engagement photos that Anne takes on her property which is absolutely beautiful. Just seeing how she pays attention to the littlest details I knew that we were in good hands. Anne was so easy to get in touch with and made planning fun. On the day of the wedding we were running a little behind and Anne was wonderful, she never got flustered and kept everything moving smooth. We had a rowdy group of groomsmen and bridesmaids and Anne kept the photos fun for everyone. Our photos were available online within a week of the wedding. Everyone that has seen our photos tells me how beautiful they are and how much I love the camera…..which is actually funny because I hate getting my photo taken. We just picked up our wedding album and I absolutely love it!! The one thing I said during the planning process of the wedding is that I really wanted a great photographer because the photos are one thing that we will have forever to look at and remember our day. I am so happy that we went with Anne and you will be too. If you are looking for a great professional photographer I highly recommend Anne!

I met Anne through my friend that also used her for her wedding and Anne has been my favorite vendor to work with. I was looking for someone that was a professional photographer full time, she lived up to every expection! She offers a free engagement photo shoot with the contract which was great to use for Save the Dates. One of her best selling features to me was if in the case of rain on the wedding day, she would do a make up session at her house after the wedding. My wedding was in April, so there is a good chance of rain. Thankfully, I didn't need to do a make up session, but knowing that I would get the pictures either way was a huge reflief for me. She is always quick to respond to emails and is easy to work with your schedule. I can't say enough good things about her, she is definitely the best photogrpaher around!

I never once worried about our wedding photos after seeing the quality of her work with our engagement pictures.

Having viewed a number of photographer's websites I was particularly pleased to come across the work of Anne Lord. A quality of understated elegance and intimacy pervades her images and reflected the style I hoped would be seen in my photos as well. Meeting Anne prior to my wedding, gave me the confidence that not only professionally, but personally she would enhance our wedding day with her talent and personality, which she did. Anne is a lovely person who put both my husband and me at ease, as she produced a wonderful documentation of our wedding day to be treasured the rest of our lives.

Anne Lord's photography is beautiful. What drew us to her was her natural ability to capture the moments of our wedding day, as we often found other photographers were great at the portraits but lacked in actually catching the emotions in the events of the day. On the actual wedding day, we worked with both Anne and her assistant Brian, which allowed us to get a broader range of angles in our photos than just one photographer would have. Anne posted our photos within days of our wedding (friends and family had already seen them by the time we returned from our honeymoon). Anne was also extremely flexible and generous with us when we asked to change our wedding album completely at the last minute, even though it was divergent from our original contract. We are so excited by our final album! Anne is easy to work with and extremely pleasant, which made things go smoothly on our wedding day, for our engagement photo sessions and handling all our questions in between. She is extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. We highly recommend her, as she is well worth the money and we couldn't be happier with our photos!

Anne was definitely our favorite vendor! As other reviewers noted, she is SUPER responsive! She always got back to our emails very quickly, and of course it was great to be able to see all our proofs online in less than a week! She is a top notch professional, and definitely gives her clients the sense that she cares about them and their vision of their wedding. She was very flexible but also provided her honest advice from years of experience which we valued. I did not want someone to just say 'Yes' to all my requests if it was not a good idea.

She is truly an artist and her photos speak for themselves. I felt that her style allowed her to capture traditional elegance from some more modern angles/poses. We definitely had the standard posed family/bridal party shots, but she really captured the emotions of the day in some of the more candid photos. She was even able to get pictures of my parents smiling (they NEVER smile in photos)!

We will always have beautiful photos to remember our day. Thank you Anne!

Anne and her assistant Jeremy were wonderful! She's a photographer by trade, so this isn't something she just does on the weekends for an extra buck. She really knows what she's doing, and you can tell in the quality of the pictures. I've shown them to several people, who have all commented how beautiful the photos came out. She had really interesting ideas for shots, and I love all of the 'Details' photos. The photos were online seriously two days later, which is even earlier than originally promised. We also got the photobooth through her, and if you weren't considering getting one before, GET ONE. It was without a doubt the highlight of the whole night. EVERYONE loved it, and we have loads of fantastic pictures in the guest book now (they print out in duplicate, and one copy goes in your guest book for people to sign). That is the #1 thing people talked to me about after the wedding: how much fun the photobooth was. Plus, compared to other photographers in the area, she was a fantastic value. I couldn't believe what we paid for what we got. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anne and her team to anyone. You won't be disappointed!

Anne Lord was FANTASTIC for our wedding! I know 5/5 stars seems a bit extreme, but in this case, it is well deserved.

Planning my wedding from out of town/my mom's assistance, Anne could not have been more kind, understanding, and flexible. We had to change our appointment times, information about 100 times, and Anne could not have been any kinder.

She immediately put my (now) husband and I at ease the moment we met her at her gallery, and it was a great working relationship ever since.

I would gladly use Anne again and would happily refer to a friend. If you want a photographer that is professional, extremely responsive, and is pleasant to be around, Anne is your photographer.

Anne was absolutely wonderful to work with. Our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos turned out beautifully. She is very professional and very responsive. I never had to wait more than a few hours for a response to an e-mail.

We had awful weather the day of our wedding and were not able to get as many posed photos as we would have liked. As a result, Anne has so wonderfully given us another opportunity for another shoot as bride and groom so we can add to our memories.

We never noticed her at the wedding. She kept herself out of view and still captured all of the best moments. We were also shocked when our photos were online to view just days after the wedding!

Anne is well worth the investment as your photographer. Definitely one of the easiest vendors to work with!

Anne did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding. She was also incredibly accommodating and I really felt like she was looking out for us and taking care of us as her clients. A lot of vendors change after you sign a contract, if anything Anne only became more generous and happy to go the extra mile as time went on. The quality of our pictures is great - there are so many great shots it's hard to choose the best ones for an album! We didn't have time to do an engagement shoot, usually part of Anne's package, and doing that is the one thing that may have made our shots better by making us more comfortable from the get-go with individual portraits, but even without that we eventually warmed up and once the day had begun everything was natural anyhow. Anne is very low-impact, she doesn't interfere with your celebration or ceremony but manages to get the shots. She doesn't really take charge in a bossy way, which is mostly good, but if you have a large family or a large bridal party you might want to appoint someone to move the bodies and really help make sure there are good poses with the families and various other folks, particularly if you're squeezing in shots between the ceremony and the reception (maybe that's good to do regardless of your photographer, but I didn't think of it). Anne's prices are much better than others in the area, and she gives you much more for what you pay. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to any of my friends or family without hesitation. If she's free on your wedding date, book her!

We had met Anne at one of the Bridal shows. There were probably a total of 6 other photographers at this show. She had the best portfolio by far compared to the other photographers. Other vendors had what I considered bad quality in their prints; some seem to like to use the “journalistic” or edgy type of photos that are popular. (Really people, it’s a wedding not the 2011 Egyptian Revolution)
Anne’s photo’s have a nice balance of traditional wedding along with nice artful composition that made use of the textures and scenery available at the venues. She also has had a ton of experience shooting weddings in the DC metro area, and knows the best way to shoot most of the popular wedding venues. Just ask her!
My wife and I had preferences on the photos we wanted taken and what we liked and Anne listened and remembered our requests and instructions. During the session her and her assistant were non-obtrusive and got great photos. After the ceremony during the family photos, Anne quickly factored in my parents special needs (they are in their mid-eighties and handicapped) and she kept everything on schedule. If you are a person that wants to have the best wedding photos without having to worry about great quality, then Anne Lord is the best choice.

We met with a few photographers before deciding and loved Anne and Jeremy - they are very professional, kind, and their work is beautiful. Anne was already booked for our date, but she said she had one other lead photographer, Jeremy. We met with Jeremy and knew we were going to book him. He was fantastic, really funny, and you can't tell the difference between Anne's photos versus Jeremy's. We had a really good time with him and were so glad he did our wedding. Jeremy also had an assistant with him, James, who was great too. We hardly noticed Jeremy or James the entire evening, but they took sooo many great pictures and really did tell the story of the day. They really covered all aspects of the wedding and I couldn't have asked for better photos. They are true professionals and their quality is unmatched and prices are fair. You should definitely book with Anne or Jeremy - you won't be disappointed.

Anne was absolutely wonderful! She was great to work with at all times during the "process". I was looking for someone who was responsible, affordable, took beautiful photos, and left me nothing to worry about on my wedding day - she did all of that!

The engagement pictures were done very early and after we saw those, my husband and I knew we made the right choice. As for the wedding day, she was able to capture every moment. She was taking photos as soon as I walked into my venue and was able to tell the story of the day. I was looking for someone who also could direct my family for pictures and she did a great job.

I got so many complements from my friends and family before and after the wedding about how she conducted herself during the wedding (people wishing they had a more proactive photographer for their wedding) and after the wedding I had my pictures almost immediately when other people I knew who had gotten married the same day still have not seen all of their photos more than a month later!

I would highly recommend Anne to anyone who wants to have amazing photos of their wedding!

On the big day, set-up was perfect and our guests LOVED the photobooth. It was great entertainment and really complemented the joyous occasion. We used the props and guestbook option and now have a very memorable guestbook with wonderful photos that really highlight our family and friend's personality. Anne Lord and her team really made this easy and couldn't have been more courteous and helpful. We highly recommend it!

She is friendly, organized, professional, responsive to e-mails, and she takes great pictures. She was very upfront about her services, and she has many different wedding packages to choose from. Upon completing the contract you get the rights to your photos which, from what I understand, does not happen with all photographers. The guests at my wedding enjoyed having pictures taken by Anne and loved the results. She takes classy, elegant photos in different settings, poses, etc. You cannot go wrong with Anne if you are looking for someone to visually capture your wedding!

After our first meeting with Anne, we knew she would be the perfect photographer for our daughter's wedding. She exuded confidence, professionalism and genuine understanding in guiding us through our preparations before the wedding. Every e-mail or call, and we made many, was returned promptly. When we had questions on style or artistic setting, Anne was always ready with the perfect suggestion. The wedding day was wonderful! Anne and her able assistant were able to capture moments that we never could have anticipated. During the whirlwind of events, we were able to stay focused on our family and guests knowing that Anne was in charge of all the photographic aspects. As the results clearly proved, our confidence was well placed.
The wedding books that she prepared were simply exquisite. The masterful style and artful arrangements that she brought to the finished product are simply the finest work of its type that we have ever seen. They will remain among our most treasured possessions.
We only plan to use her for all of our family photographs for now on. We not only have a wonderful photographer, we made a new friend! When only the best will do, we most highly recommend Anne Lord Photography.

Anne was amazing to work with. I met Anne at a bridal expo over 2 years ago and knew she was the photographer for us. Her prices are compoarable but she is worth it. She includes an engagement shoot in her package and give wallets out from the engagement shoot at the wedding. The engagement shoot was a lot of fun and a great way to get used to having formal pictures done if you are like me and haven't experience something like that since high school photos. She is very professional and friendly. She lets you have suggestions and is amazingly fast when it comes to posting pictures online. Our engagement shoot photos were posted within 12 hours! and our wedding pictures were up in 3 days!! If you order your album when you sign the contract you get some great discounts and the albums are beautiful. We are currently picking the pictures we would like to include in our album and we cant wait to have an ablum with Anne's beautiful photos. Also, if you order an album you get the digital right to your photos after you get the album which was important to us. One word of advice: Anne gives you a sheet to fill out all of the pictures you want during the reception (ex: a picture with you and your uncle)... take this seriously and include every picture you want because you will be overwhelmed and enjoying your reception and may forget some of the pictures you want. I have a couple friends I didn't get pictures with that I really wish I had writen down. Thank you Anne for your capturing our wedding with your amazing pictures.

We were right. She got to know us, and we got to know her, through our engagement session. She was professional and courteous. We could not have asked for a more wonderful photographer. You felt like a family member was taking your pictures... and she was absolutely direct when needed... something our families definitely needed from time to time!

We would hire her again in a heartbeat.

I didn't even look for any other photographer, I knew I wanted Anne (she did a fantastic job at my brother's wedding). My fiance and I (and our parents) instantly felt comfortable with Anne. She is very easy to work with, flexible, and the pictures are absolutely beautiful. She is warm, friendly and a delight to work with. She has true talent and I absolutely love our engagement and wedding pictures. I could not have been happier with her services. I highly recommend her.

We absolutely loved working with Anne! She is fantastic! Unfortunately she wasn't able to do the photography on our wedding day, but her associates Jeremy and Heather were just as wonderful as she was. Our photos came out wonderful and Anne worked with us every step of the way. I highly recommend Anne and her staff!

Anne Lord is an incredibly talented professional who was recommended to us by our wedding venue. We knew from our first meeting with her that she was the photographer for us; her style is classic and elegant, and she is very calm and professional at all times. We really enjoyed working with her during our engagement shoot at her beautiful studio and on our wedding day. She arrived early the day of the wedding and stayed late. The wedding pictures were posted on her site before we even returned from our honeymoon, and we were absolutely thrilled with how they turned out. Anne and the second photographer took over 2,000 pictures, and she organized them on her website in folders according to the events of the day. We are now in the process of choosing our album pictures and are constantly marveling at how many wonderful choices there are. We will treasure Anne’s pictures forever and we highly recommend her services.

Anne was a pleasure to work with! From the intimate meeting at her gorgeous studio to our hectic but perfect wedding day, she was relaxed and always made us feel at ease. Our photos came out brilliantly and our only difficulty is that we had too many spectacular photos to choose from! She captured so many moments that were small but meaningful. I can honestly say that we don't even really recall seeing her on our wedding day, but its clear she was there, because she captured everything expertly and obviously very discretely. We highly recommend Anne without reservation. Our photos are the most incredible lasting tangible evidence of the best day of our lives together!

Simply put, Anne is just fantastic. She did the pictures for our engagement and wedding and we couldn't be happier. We heard so many horror stories of people hating their wedding pictures, so we were a bit nervous about picking a photographer, but the moment we met Anne, we knew we were in good hands. She is extremely thorough, methodical and professional and the pictures are absolutely beautiful! She came early and stayed late and our wedding was an all day affair. We really appreciated her flexibility and good humor through the whole event (half of it was outside in 90 degree weather!).

The pictures were available online within a few days of the wedding - nicely organized by event. And the album she created for us was beyond wonderful. We really can't say enough nice things about Anne. We will be recommending her to all our friends and family!

My daughter connected with Anne immediately.

Anne is extremely professional and with a 2nd photographer was able to capture everything. We are extremely pleased with our photos!

As the father of the bride, I wanted excellent quality at an affordable price. Anne Lord gave me that and more. She is incredibly talented, has a great work ethic, and provides what she promises. Anne is truly gifted with a camera. Her ability to capture the beauty and solemness of the moment is amazing. She uses her imagination and creativity well in her product. Of ALL the services that I acquired for my daughter's wedding, she by far was the best. Having seen other portfolios, they don't hold a candle to Anne's work.

I am continuously impressed by Anne Lord Photography. The company came recommended by our wedding venue (the Fairfax Hilton Garden Inn) as being reasonably cost, very professional, & well regarded by other clients of theirs.

From our intial meeting I knew that Anne & our photographer of the day, Jeremy, would do a fantastic job capturing the story of our day. They provided me with multiple examples of their work, a clear idea of how the day would unfold & what they would be doing throughout.

During all of the planning process both Anne & Jeremy were very easy to get ahold of, & were very helpful giving suggestions & providing ideas for how to make my pictures memorable. Being able to work with Jeremy for our engagement pictures was wonderful, as well, as we were able to really see that Anne Lord Photography was the right choice for us.

I've been bragging to many bride friends that we had our wedding proofs in less than a WEEK from our wedding day, & all of my album choices had been sent to Anne before the one week mark for our wedding. I am so happy that I chose to work with this company, I cannot recommend them enough!

Your wedding photography search should stop here! Anne has nothing but great reviews and seeing her many 5 stars is what I noticed right away.

I am so happy I found Anne Lord on this site. She is excellent to work with and is very quick to respond to questions or concerns (that is huge for me). We are happy with both our engagement pictures and the wedding pictures that we have seen online. She was great at directing poses and getting things done in a timely manner while maintaining her calm and friendly personality. Anne definitely knows photography and knows the best pictures to take with any background. The engagement and wedding pictures were available online within days - she understands the importance and excitement of your day and her website for ordering is so easy and user friendly, for both you and your guests.

I will use Anne Lord Photography again for any future photography needs and would highly recommend her. We knew that it was important to put our money towards a good photographer and we made the perfect choice. Pictures last a lifetime and your wedding is definitely one occasion that you don't want to cut corners on. You'll understand all of this for yourself once you contact her!

Anne has been absolutely wonderful to work with! We had our engagement pictures, a bridal portrait session and our wedding day photos with her. The gardens and lake surrounding her home made a beautiful backdrop for our engagement photos as well the bridal portraits. Anne and her staff is very easy to work with which made the whole process of getting pictures taken very relaxing and easy. We had more awesome pictures than I ever imagined after the wedding to sort through! I would recommend Anne to anyone who needed a wedding photographer!

We met with several photographers but knew from the start that Anne would be a great fit, and we weren't disappointed. We had a fantastic engagement photo shoot with her and got some great photos to send out. On the day of the wedding Anne and her assistant Jeremy were completely unobtrusive while taking a variety of excellent photos, both staged and candid. She makes it easy to view and purchase all the photos taken, and has been very easy to work with after the wedding in terms of choosing the photos we want for our albums. Combine her professionalism and service with extremely reasonable prices and Anne is an easy recommendation to make for anyone's wedding photographer.

I listened to the advice of every couple I knew and alotted the highest percentage of my budget for a photographer and then found the best photographer I could. This, of course, was Anne. I was looking for someone who would take excellent portriats AND give me a photojournalistic record of the day. Our photos are simply outstanding and hiring Anne was the best investment we made.

About Anne - she is a perfectionist. I noticed this from our first meeting and knew that if we worked with her I would not have to worry about getting all of the photos we needed. She is an artist - Anne has the ability to capture real moments on film and then present them in a way that makes you feel like you are reliving the day. As part of our package, we also ordered a slide show. The slide show was presented at the end of the evening put the best pictures from the day to music. This slide show brought my neice to tears of happiness for the first time in her life and also had the same effect on the rest of our guests. She is flexible - Anne accomodated a move in date and venue without missing a beat. She knows what she is doing - there were times during the engagement photo session and portraits that Anne asked us to do things to create a picture or moment. Initially I felt that this was too manufactured - but at the end of the day the things she asked us to do produced some of our favorite photos. Listen to Anne and you will be happy you did. Finally, Anne cares. Because she is so professional, this quality does not strike you at first, but as you work with her and talk to her it will become evident that she considers each wedding she photographs as an honor and opportunity to capture history and she wants to do so authentically.

In summary, Anne Lord loves what she does and she does it superbly.

Anne is such a pleasure to work with! She truly enjoys photography and unlike many other photographers out there, she does this for a living, not just a hobby. Anne is extremely professional and accommodating. She returned all of my calls and emails very quickly. On the day of my wedding, Anne and her assistant blended in very well but she also wasn't afraid to speak up to get the shots I specifically requested. Instead of having us tied up for hours taking pictures, she moved very quickly and we actually got to enjoy our entire wedding. Anne is very detail-oriented and provided my husband and I with TONS of pictures. All of our images were posted online for us within a week of our wedding. Anne's prices are extremely reasonable as well. As soon as we visited her in-home studio and saw some of her work, it was a no-brainer that we had to have Anne as our photographer!

Leading up to the wedding we needed a photography company who were not only professional, but also personable, due to our arrangements and schedule challenges. Anne Lord was more than accommodating, and managed our requirements perfectly. On the day that the wedding photos were taken, Anne and Jeremy worked harmoniously together, feeding off each other's ideas, but without imposing on the event itself. They managed to capture the mood of the day brilliantly, impressing us and our guests not only by the outstanding pictures they produced, but also by their attitude and the energy they brought to our special day. We are very happy we chose Anne Lord Photography, we would definitely use them again and have no hesitation recommending their services to anyone else.

Anne is an amazing photographer and we are very pleased with how everything turned out. We got married in September 2009 and I just never got around to writing a review. Anne went above and beyond for our wedding for two different reasons. The first is that I called Anne about a month before we got married and asked her if we could take more engagement photos because I had lost a lot of weight and did not want the old pictures displayed at the wedding. Anne was more than willing and we did another engagement shoot a week before the wedding at no extra cost and the pics tured out great. The other and most important example of how great Anne is, is that she offered to take more pictures of us after the wedding because it rained on our wedding day and we were not able to take all the pics we wanted. We had an outdoor wedding at a beautiful venue (Oatlands Plantation) but we did not get to utilize all of the gorgeous scenery because of the rain. A month after we got married we went back and got dressed up again (so much fun) and took two hours worth of pictures (about 200 extra) of just the two of us. Again this was no extra charge and we would have never been able to take that many pictures on the day of the wedding even if it was sunny!
We are very thankful to Anne for this and our album turned out great :)

We hired Anne as the photographer for our wedding in August 2009. We couldn't be happier with her professional serivce and the quality of our photos. She takes a unique approach to photography. She captures many of the small spontaneous, moments that proved to make great pictures, so we got a mixture of very beautiful spontaneous shots along with great formal photos. She adds a lot of special touches to make the day special. Along with her coverage of the wedding (a second photographer accompanies Anne to ensure all the special moments are captured) an engagement portrait session was also included in the price. At the reception, she handed out wallets of some of the engagement shots to our guests, which they all really liked. She also put together a slideshow DVD of special shots of our wedding set to our First Dance song. Within a few days of the wedding, all of the proofs were online for us to view. When we received our album (after agonizing for months over picking the best photos because there were so many GREAT ones) we couldn't of been more pleased! If you're looking for unique and beautiful wedding photography, we highly recommend Anne Lord to cover your special day!

Working with Anne Lord was truly a wonderful experience. She is incredibly professional - caring and sweet as well as organized, efficient, and was able to take well over 1500 pictures during the 8 hour period that she was with us for our July wedding. I liked that she had been to our reception site before, and she had several ideas for our photographs. Anne's style of photography is incredibly elegant, but creative and fun at the same time. She had plenty of ideas, but also was flexible and included all of the shots that we wanted. We met and emailed with Anne several times leading up to our wedding, and always got quick, helpful responses. I liked the included engagement shots, because it allowed Anne to get to know my husband and I a bit before the wedding. Also, everyone at our wedding loved that she brought our engagement photos with information about how to log on to her website and view our wedding photos only 5 days after our wedding! Having our pictures available so quickly was truly incredible. Her work is brilliant! I honestly can say working with Anne was one of the most pleasant things I did while planning our wedding.

All throughout the process, Anne was quick to respond, very helpful, and allowed us to customize our package to fit our budget. Her photos are gorgeous and she made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. The pictures she took were the perfect mixture of portrait and photo-journalistic that I was looking for. Anne and her team even created a special slide show of photos she took of us that she played at our reception. Our guests loved it! Her creative ideas gave us photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. Anne is a true artist who understands her craft, and more importantly, she understands her brides. I would recommend her to anyone in search of an incredible photographer. She's really the best!

I cannot recommend Anne and her team highly enough. She was wonderful to work with in the planning process and the engagement shoot included in the package was a great perk. At every stage of the process I would find myself surprised that she always went the extra step to make things just right.

She and her team were a joy to have around the big day. Everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be and the day went flawlessly! Anne can't control the weather, but she's wonderfully adaptable to whatever mother nature throws at her!

She put together a beautiful slide show set to a song we chose on the spot for the reception that honestly blew me away. It was a perfect end to the reception and a wonderful way to remember the day!

We're in the process of starting to put together our album and the quality of the photos and the albums themselves is outstanding. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Anne's quality is outstanding among the MANY photographers we looked at for the wedding and her pricing couldn't be more fair.

I can't say enough about Anne! She took me under her wing as an assistant years ago and taught me so much! It was the only choice in my book to have her as my photographer. Even though we got blasted with a downpour right when we tried to do our portraits, Anne and her team were still able to dart through the rain from cover to cover and get some amazing shots. They even worked with my husband and my (him a designer and me an photographer)'s creative input with professionalism and incorporated some of our ideas for shots.

Although, I'm now in the same business as her, I would still recommend Anne any day of the week as a fantastic photographer AND person to work with.

Anne shot our wedding on August 31, 2008. We met with at least four photographers, and decided that Anne was most in line with our wish for how the wedding should she be shot. She has a ton of experience and is very much dedicated to photography. She considers it an art as well as a profession, and while she should satisfy anyone who wants a traditionally-shot wedding, she adds a certain artistic element to her work, which we appreciated in reviewing the end result. I suspect that she is very selective about her assistants, and she will bring a second shooter with her to the wedding in order to cover both the bride and the groom. She did a spectacular job with our engagement photos, and we thought it was a great value to include the engagement photo session in the price of the wedding package. Further, after the wedding, she produces a montage DVD set to whatever music you choose, a nice little four or five-minute slide show for showing to your family and friends. I should note that it was important to us that we ultimately end up with the "digital negatives" of the shots, i.e., the electronically saved digital images. It's my understanding that we receive those upon ordering an album, which we are in the process of doing. If you're shopping for a photographer, be sure to find out if you can obtain the digital negatives. Finally (and this is no small matter), it's important that you trust and like your photographer, because he or she will be an integral part of your wedding day, and Anne is very nice and pleasant to work with. We would use her again for future photography needs.

Anne's quality of service from the day we met her for an interview while I was planning the wedding, until now (the posting of the pictures) has been exceptional. Both her and her assistant are a fine team and have produced a variety of quality images from multiple angles, and have included all guests/wedding parties as per my request. I cannot wait to choose my images for the proof and final albums! Her responsiveness is also fantastic, always available via email and phone and has been able to answer all questions, concerns! She and her assistant are extremely professional, and kept us all in line, as we had a rather large wedding party...which can be difficult when taking both church and city pictures. She was flexible and allowed me multiple sites for photos as per the contract...and again I have fantastic shots! Cannot wait to add some special effects!

Anne Lord was truly a pleasure to work with. I knew of a few friends who had used Anne for their weddings and I liked her work, and knowing that they were pleased made her my top choice even though I researched a few other photographers.

Anne devoted a lot of time to explaining the process to us, showing her previous work and the products she can create. Anne herself wasn't available on our wedding day, but she had another photographer available. For our engagement portrait session (included with package) she brought this photographer out so that we could meet him, and so he could become familiar with our personalities and how we photograph. We felt comfortable with him right away, and this carried through to the day of our wedding. In the weeks before out wedding date, Anne had us fill out a timeline and "must have" picture list so that the photographers could plan the day. Dean and his assistant, Kris, were extremely accomodating and flowed right along with the hectic day. I didn't notice them at all during the ceremony, and barely during the reception (which is a good thing!). Anne has continued working with us toward our photo albums, and we're really looking forward to the final product!

We felt comfortable with Anne from the moment we met her. We had a hectic beginning prior to the outdoor ceremony due to rain, but even in our frenzied state, she managed to work around the frenzy and got all the important pictures. She delivers exactly what she says and is very precise in her product description. She offers quite a bit in her packages so when comparing prices be sure to note all the "extras" Anne provides. We are especially fond of the DVD slide show set to music (part of her package). We just received our album and have received many compliments on it. It was quite a selection process for us and she was very accomodating and a pleasure to work with.

She really went out of her way to document the vast majority of the events of our ceremony and reception and ended up giving us a look at things we frankly did not even notice during our Wedding day.

As such, we HIGHLY recommend Anne Lord and her services.

Anne came recommended to me by a friend, and I've since passed along this great recommendation to two other brides. I immediately felt at ease with Anne upon meeting, which is very important for a photographer (even better - she made my "hates to be photographed husband" feel at ease)! Anne was always very responsive - reply emails usually within the hour. She also was very flexible - changing our outdoor photo location when the rain came! Our proof book looks great - it's amazing the photos she captured - I barely knew that she was there - and we're in the process of putting together out album. Anne's services and product are a great value and I would highly recommend her.

Anne did an amazing job with our wedding. I didn't plan to have a photographer and my sister found Anne and gave us an engagement shoot with her as a gift. The shoot was fun and I found Anne to be very down to earth, easy to work with and her personality definitely made us relax. The pictures turned out fantastic. After that we decided that we would like a wedding photographer and I started asking friends, researching and pricing things out. Anne's pricing was good and since we already knew her style, I felt she was the best fit for us. And she was. She listened and understood what was important to us and she captured a story and not just a set of pictures. I didn't want the "traditional" wedding portraits and what I got was incredibly beautiful and artistic. I truly appreciate Anne's artistic sense and that shows through in her photography and her design. Our wedding album came out incredible.

Anne was amazing. My husband and I could not possibly been happier about our experience with her. She is an amazingly talented photographer. Almost every shot she took was priceless, narrowing down 600 for our proof album has been so difficult because we love almost every picture. Also Anne was (and still is) extremely friendly and personable. It was a pleasure working for her. It's obvious that she really enjoys her work because she is so excited about taking pictures. My husband and I loved working with her on our engagement pictures and on our wedding day. Also she has a great team. Her assistant(s) were also great to work with. They got all the pictures we wanted and they were anything but intrusive.
Again I honestly, couldn't possibly be more satisfied about my experiences with Anne. I highly recommend her to anyone getting married!

Exceptional - Anne has a very artistic eye, the compositions of her photographs are stunning; she has attention to detail. She is a warm person, yet direct in explaining the contract details as well as grouping people on the wedding day. Besides our first dance, I did not register Anne & her assistant in my mind during the ceremony or reception. Meaning, we just had fun! And there was not a camera in the face. We enjoyed seeing all of the photos afterwards and were amazed at the great times that were caught on film. Anne also snapped our engagement photos and they were equally as beautiful.
anne is very responsive by email and phone, and very professional. The examples of wedding photo albums are beautiful and she offers a unique layout that is equal to her eye for composition. A couple will enjoy working with Anne and be pleased with the outcome.

After interviewing several different photographers in the DC area, we selected Anne Lord because we were very impressed with her quality of work. We really liked the style of her candid photographs. We were also pleased with the level of service and items that were included in the package we selected. Additionally, she was very friendly and easy to talk to. We were immediately comfortable in her presence.

Anne was always quick to respond to my questions about our engagement photo session, ceremony and reception timeline, and the numerous other questions I had.

We were SO impressed with our engagement photo session - every single picture turned out great! Anne did an excellent job of directing us into several poses and actions that resulted in pictures that look like the moment was accidentally caught. The same was true of our wedding pictures! We could not believe how many excellent photos there were - and there were a LOT! Anne did an amazing job of directing family into formal poses in the limited amount of time we had at the church. Our favorite photos; however, are those that were taken with our wedding party and by ourselves. With Anne as your photographer, you don't have to worry that you are going to have a bunch of the same pictures. We were very impressed with the variety of pictures we have to choose from for our album.

We had a wonderful experience with Anne. When we first met with her, she made us feel very comfortable and optimistic about everything. We did an engagement session with her which was helpful in getting to know each other. Our wedding day with Anne was fabulous and all the pictures came out wonderful. Both her and her assistant paid attention to every detail and were able to get the candid shots and capture the emotion of the moment that we were looking for. I would recommend Anne to anyone and I have actually continued to use her on the business side as well. Anne's rate's are well worth the product she provides and does it all with a big smile.

I started looking for photographers for my friends wedding 2 years ago and came across, Anne. She did such and outstanding job for them that we decided to use her for our own wedding last year. She was awesome and was so helpful on our wedding day. Infact, when our wedding photos were posted on line for us to review my parents called me and said, "I can not believe the photos of you. We were worried because we do not remember even seeing the photographs and didn't think they were getting any pictures." Well, there were hundreds of pictures taken and picking them has been so difficult. I don't think that my husband and I are photogenic but EVERYONE has commented about how beautiful our pictures are. There was some pictures that were not so flattering and they were removed from the website. Anne was personable, professional, and amazing to work with. I highly recommend her. She was within our budget and we have such beautiful prints and a DVD to look back at and remember our special day. I will be using Anne for other events down the road. I highly recommend her.

I cannot say enough about Anne and the services she provided at my wedding. Through the entire process she was amazing! Flexible, professional, and creative in her shots. She took an array of beautiful pictures so I had an enourmous selection to choose from, my only problem was narrowing them down. She captured every moment of my special day, but was never intrusive. You simply couldn't ask for a better photographer. She took the time to get to know my husband and I and our families so when we were taking our family pictures, she called people by name. I was deeply impressed at this personal touch. Anne obviosly loves her work, and that is just the kind of person you want to be a part of your wedding.

Anne Lord did the photography for my sister's wedding in 2006. We were so impressed with her work that she was the very first vendor I booked for my wedding. I knew that she would do an amazing job because I had already seen how brilliant she was. You can look at her website and her portfolio and see she is a wonderful photographer, but you don't see how fantastic she is when she is gathering all your different families into a hundred different groupings, remembering everyone's name, all while taking the most beautiful pictures. A great photographer must have a great eye for pictures and a kind and patient spirit. Anne has both. Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Anne is absolutely incredible! Her photographs are even better than we hoped for. She was great to work with on our engagement photos and on the day of the wedding. Her and her assistant were very unobtrusive, we never even noticed they were photographing. We were provided with hundreds and hundreds of photos and we are happy with how they all turned out. She was able to capture some very special moments throughout the night, as well as the traditional portrait shots. We are more than thrilled with the photographs and would recommend Anne in a heartbeat!

We definitely weren't disappointed on the wedding day. Anne even brought an extra assistant out of pocket. She and her 2 assistants took over a thousand pictures. The photos turned out fabulous. We got our proof albums already and now we're working with her on the albums. I was so happy with her that I referred my co-worker to her also :) Thumbs up!

Anne did a wonderful job providing photography service on and around our wedding day. She began with an engagement photo session (part of every package) and we love the photographs from there- she even allowed us to include our puppy for some shots. She got the shots I wanted her to get at the actual wedding, and yet I never really noticed her or her assistant (a good thing, in my opinion). There were about 2000 photographs taken and at least 400 good ones to choose from. When we finally got around to making our album she was very responsive and used her judgement when we couldn't make specific artistic decisions- it came out beautifully! I would highly recommend her services for any wedding or other event- great value as well!

Anne could not have been more professional and pleasant to work with. Planning a wedding cross-country was a challenge but we never had to worry about anything on the photography end, thanks to Anne. She fit us in when we needed her, she took the time with us to get to know us and truly get a sense of what we wanted, and above all she was extremely patient with my large family during the post-wedding, pre-reception time period which could only have taken a saint.

Anne has a great vision - when I went on her website and viewed her photo galleries I knew she was the photographer I wanted to go with before I even met her. To meet with her in person and realize how wonderful she is was the icing on the cake. I like that she thinks outside the box and does not resort to the standard poses many photographers take that tend to look more stiff and formal then what I wanted. She manages to catch and accurately portray the vibe of the wedding. She is very reasonable in her pricing, and will get the job done well.

Anne Lord is the best photographer you will find in the Northern Virginia area. I found her at a Bridal Show and her work grabbed my attention immediately. She was one of the first booths I saw at the Bridal Show and after I went to hers and met her and looked through her books, I knew I had found which photographer I wanted for my wedding. I continued to search for other photographers, but no one's work could compare to hers.
She was so nice and professional through out the entire process. She thought of things that I never would have, and guided us through the entire process. Her attention to detail was extroidinary. She always responded to my questions or concerns in a very timely manner. Her work on the actual wedding day was beyond my expectations. She captured every moment of the day (she missed nothing!!). I could not have been more thrilled with her work. Even up to this day, one year after our wedding, Anne is still there for us guiding us through our album selections. I would recommend Anne's services above and beyond anyone! You will not be disappointed! If you are looking to have every moment of your day captured, Anne Lord Photography is the only want to go!

One of the best decisions my husband and I made regarding our wedding was the hiring of Anne Lord as our photographer. A year and a half later, we STILL cannot say enough wonderful things about the services we received from Ms. Lord and her assistant.

I must admit, we originally hired her b/c her fees were much more reasonable and her photography much better than all the other online vendors we had viewed. But upon our initial consultation with Ms. Lord, we could not believe that we had stumbled upon such a gem!

Ms. Lord provided advice and recommendations on our wedding day, and she was EXTREMELY accommodating as far as fitting our photo requests into her tight schedule for our wedding day. The quality of the photos was phenomenal. Ms. Lord even helped me out right before the ceremony started by graciously placing some of my personal items at the front of the Chapel (as if she didn't have enough to do already)!

My husband and I have been to a number of weddings where the photographer practically ruined the atmosphere by creating such a disturbing presence. This is another reason we are very happy with Ms. Lord's services. On our wedding day, Ms. Lord was so stealthy that I actually wondered at one point if she had left the reception! :) On the contrary, I don't think she and her assistant missed ANY opportunities to take the kind of photos we were looking for. The snapped pictures of EVERYTHING.

Even after the wedding, Ms. Lord has been very helpful and patient with the decision-making process involving the selection of photos for our wedding album. To this day, she remains a valued professional contact of my husband and I, and I'm sure that she will remain so for many years!

Anne was a wonderful photographer to work with, and the quality of her pictures are bar none. We were between 2 photographers towards the end, but she does such a great job of capturing the emotion of the day, we decided to go with her.

The day of the wedding, she did a great job blending in, and was not really visible at all during the ceremony or reception. She had the pictures up within a week of the wedding, and had them organized in sections (ceremony, getting ready, etc) which really made it easy to browse. The quantity of pictures available was really astounding, she really didn't miss a thing!

For those who are money-conscious, she was definitely a great bargain. I believe she may change her packages since our wedding, but it sounds like it will on par with other photographers in terms of what is included.

I would definitely recommend using Anne, and if nothing else, it can't hurt to check out her website, which shows some samples of what she can do.

Anne was wonderful to work with! She is very pleasant and her photographs were beautiful. I would like to have had more shots without us smiling and more intimate, but we ended up with wonderful photographs. Her assistant didn't quite follow directions, he was supposed to take formal photos of the guys at the church and he did them in my in-laws basement. Not what I was expecting. He also was supposed to go into the church to take these photos before the girls arrived. We had a timeline drawn up for our vendors. He stayed in the parking lot shooting the groom and his family at the limos instead.
I thought I had requested for photos of me and my family, but apparently that communication was faulty. I have no photos of me with my family except at the church with my mom and brother. None of my grandparents, aunts, uncles and so on at the church or the reception.
I highly recommend Anne, just be clear up front what you want and photos you want taken and where. You will be so busy thinking of other things, you won't think of it during the actual day.

Anne was a vendor that was actually referred by another photographer that I was looking at for our wedding but was going to be out of town for ours so she recommended about 4 different photographers. I researched all 4 from their website and Anne was the 1st one on our list to meet with. I feel in love with her pictures and albums that I saw in her studio and we booked her after meeting with her. She has been great to work with from our early bridal pictures instead of the usual engagement pictures that people take. I loved the idea of looking at most of our wedding pictures on our honeymoon after she uploaded most of them. She has done a great job with our proof and wedding album and I highly recommend her for a photographer.

We were so extremely pleased with Anne Lord Photography. Anne was not available (already booked) for our wedding day, so Jeremy was our photographer. He was absolutely fantastic. He made sure to capture the classic moments (i.e., formals of the whole family, bride/groom, etc.) as well as the candid/documentary-style shots. A few weeks before the wedding, Anne contacted us to get a list of all the shots we wanted. She was so flexible and understanding, but also offered incredible advice to make sure that the photography worked as we imagined it would. On the day of, Jeremy showed up with that list in hand to make sure we didn't miss even one. He took many more than were on the list - many of which are now our favorites. Jeremy was very good at keeping the photography shoots organized, which was great because you don't want to spend your entire wedding day taking photos. Perhaps most importantly, he was so easy to get along with at the wedding. Your photographer really is a guest at your wedding, so you want to have someone who can be organized and a leader without bringing down the mood - and Jeremy did that perfectly. Of course, the end product is the most important thing. We were so pleased with how everything turned out - they captured every moment (and moments we didn't even know were happening!) The pictures were flawless and we had so many choices (I believe about 1,400 pictures, which didn't even include the ones where people's eyes were closed). After all is said and done, Anne is also incredible to work with on the photo editing/albums, and prints. She's willing to do whatever it takes and she does a tremendous (and timely) job. I would absolutely recommend Anne Lord and Jeremy to another couple.

She is the consumate professional - focused, responsive and prepared. She made my entire family feel comfortable in front of the camera and captured truly touching shots in the process. In addition, she was able to help keep me on time during the whole day so the event ran smoothly from start to finish. My entire family raved about her positive attitude, professional demeanour and final end product. I would absolutely use Anne again in a heartbeat.

I had a wonderful experience with Anne and her team! She did an exceptional job of working in a very crowded venue with guests in a lower and upper area. In addition, we complicated things for them by having the ceremony and reception in the same space so they had to work around all the set up and breakdown. The photos themselves were SO PERFECT. Captured our day so nicely. She really gets a "feel" for what your style is BEFORE the event and I LOVED the small sample pics that all guests got at the reception with online ordering info. Great photographer, great person. Thanks a million!

This review is for the Lord Henry's Photo Booth. We contracted with Anne Lord to have Lord Henry's Photo Booth at our wedding. Anne was always quick and thorough to respond to emails and she was flexible to start their setup earlier than planned when we realized the planned setup would conflict with other wedding activities in the room. And, she was willing do multiple proofs to customize the photostrip until we were satisfied. They turned out really nice. The photobooth itself was slightly disappointing though. It did not provide a countdown for when the pictures were going to be taken, nor did people know how many pictures it would take (4). We have several copies of photo strips where the last one or two photos are of people's arms as they walk out of the booth or of empty booths. Also, the video screen that showed what you looked like was slow to refresh, so it was difficult to tell what you actually looked like when the flash went off until you saw the printed photo. So, working with Anne was great, but it seemed like the photo booth part of the business was still new and could use some improvements.

Anne Lord was very friendly and professional to work with. She went out of her way to visit the reception site and the church a few days before the event and even went over the allotted time when she saw some other shots she wanted to get. We live in another state and she even worked with our fairly inflexible schedule.

The photos we got back from all this were beautiful high quality images that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
