"Capturing your Wedding Story anywhere in the US"

At the age of 6, my father placed his Leica camera in my hand and showed me how to look through the viewfinder then take a picture. Everything changed for me at that moment. Capturing the image, seeing it processed and becoming a print. It was magic to me.

My passion is wedding photography. I love to capture the emotion of your day, the special moments of your Grandmother holding your hands or squeezing the face of a child. I love to capture a Grandfather giving his Grandson a big hearty hug. Your Mother's first tear when she sees you in your wedding gown and everything suddenly becomes real - her little girl is grown up. The look of love in a Mother's eyes as she looks at her son as she straightens his lapel while Dad helps tie his son's tie. The reaction of your soon to be husband as he sees you for the first time in your beautiful wedding gown. Your Father's tear during the Father/Daughter dance. Your sibling or best friend struggling to keep their composure as they deliver a toast. You and your friends dancing and laughing during your reception. My goal is to capture the emotion of your very important day in a journalistic way.

I love what I do and feel truly blessed to be doing it. It is a huge honor and responsibility for me when my clients choose me to capture one of the most important days in their life, the beginning of a new family! I love to watch the story unfold, all of the joy from your wedding day documented and preserved. The end result is a beautiful album full of memories you will cherish for a lifetime and be able to share with your children and grand children.

Over the last two years I have striven to take my work to the next level taking many workshops from some of the top photographers in this country. Learning that there is always more to learn. My Dad always said "It's all about the light" I have heard this repeatedly from my mentors, find the light and use it to your advantage. I am currently studying to become a Certified Professional Photographer through Professional Photographers of America and aspire to become a Master Photographer through them as well.

Now you know my story - I would love the opportunity to hear about yours and have the chance to capture it for you! ~ Ann Read less

A pleasure to work with and a very professional photographer. The shots were just what we wanted for both families and for our own personal keepsakes. Ann was able to get truly intimate and memorable shots without having to interrupt the ceremony or "stage" shots. She knew where to be and what to shoot. We are so pleased with the results and everyone that we have shown our wedding photographs and video to have all been absolutely amazed. We have both recommended Ann's Photography and will continue to sing her praises.

Anns Photography is the Greatest!! Ann was my photographer for my wedding in August and both her and her staff were awesome. Leading up to the wedding Ann worked with my then fiancé and myself so that we would be able to get the package that we wanted starting with an engagement session.. For our engagement session we knew we wanted to have it done near Waterfalls and Ann helped us with finding the perfect place. From helping us to climb trees to climbing up to a mountain top, Ann made sure that she captured the images that we wanted. For the wedding she was with me from 6am while getting my hair done all the way up to 11:30 at night when my husband & I left in the limo to head to the hotel. Not only was Ann always available leading up to the wedding but was also during and after. Her turnaround time on getting you your photos is amazing. She is truly a great vendor and definitely loves what she does so you will be satisfied with what you are paying for. I definitely give Ann's photography TWO thumbs up!

Choosing Ann for our wedding was the best thing we could have done. Photography was the biggest part of what I wanted, and finding Ann for the price was a no-brainer. You can really tell that she loves what she does, and it really comes out in her work. I will definately choose Ann again if i want any more professional photography work.

Ann was simply AMAZING! She had so many great ideas and was open to all of ours as well. On the day of the wedding she went above and beyond even staying very late into the reception. She really let our true personalities shine through in our pictures. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!!

If you are looking for a friendly, professional photographer, Ann is the perfect fit. I have to admit, I've never had my pictures taken and I'm shy in front of a camera. Ann made me feel completely at ease. I never once felt silly or awkward, and her pointers made my pictures come out really good. On the day of the wedding, Ann was wonderful. She was so calm and on top of things-- she was the FIRST person at the church waiting for us. She also hired a helper photographer to make sure she didn't miss any pictures. Ann's price is extremely reasonable for all that she did for us. My family couldn't get over how nice and helpful she was to all of us. I value each photo Ann took and am 100% thankful for everything Ann did for my husband and me.

Ann's Photography was the one of the best experiences of my wedding. I'm so overwhelmed with joy because I didn't know what to expect from a photographer. Before I met Ann, I had met at least 4 photographers. Their packages were very expensive, unreasonable, and a waste. Ann was able to work with our budget. She took pictures at our wedding from 3:00 pm until 11:00 pm. She also gave my husband and I a wonderful gift that consisted of a Photo Booth. I can honestly say that this was the only part of the wedding that was worth the money. Important details that I missed during the wedding, Ann was able to take pictures and prepared a beautiful slide show that was almost like a movie from beginning to the end of my wedding. We didn't even need a videographer. She did not get in the way, she was not overbearing, and she always smiled, and made suggestions of how you should pose. Most of the pictures that she took was natural. I have not only met my own personal photographer but a very great friend indeed. I have wonderful memories to past down to my children. To all the brides that are clueless about what you want in a photographer and or who is already overwhelmed in all of the planning, Ann will definitely make your load very light, and she was always there willing to help and give advice when it came to my divorce parents, and the catering vendor that screwed up my food at the reception. Thanks Ann, for everything. I didn't think that looking back at almost 800 pics you took at my wedding/reception would make me revisit my special day and make me cry all over again with joy. We love you and we wish you much success. What a Wonderful Photographer

Ann is a fabulous photographer and a pleasure to work with! Ann and her assistant even helped me set up my tables when we found out hours before the wedding that my caterer was not going to do this. She was able to capture all of the shots we wanted her to get as well as tons of candid shots. I will treasure these photos forever.

I am the Mother of the Bride, and I can never thank Ann enough for capturing moments of the wedding and reception, that I even missed.
You will love this lady, once you meet Ann you will feel that you have known her all your life. She has a very unique way of capturing very special moments of the bride and groom and the special people that brought them to that wonderful day.
It has been almost 5 months since my daughters wedding and I cannot go a day without looking at these photos.
Everyone that has seen my book that Ann made for me has commented on how wonderful it was put together with meaning and thoughtfulness of what was special to my daughter, her husband and I.
MANY THANKS TO YOU ANN!!!!!

Ann is super sweet, so talented, and just a wonderful person to work with. She travelled over an hour to meet with us a few months before the wedding to go over our photo wishlist and to talk about any special props we wanted her to bring. She was very prompt, never in the way and took beautiful photos! I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

We used my husband's grandfather's wedding ring who is no longer with us. Ann captured a candid picture of my husband showing it to his grandmother and father. Priceless look on grandma's face! Ann photographed our ceremony so beautifully. We did not even notice she was taking pictures. We have a great series of pictures where my husband and I are dancing and he picked me up and swung me around. Ann is a very professional and extremely friendly person. Everyone enjoyed her. We love our wedding album story book she put together for us. I highly recommend Ann's Photography, she does beautiful work.

Ann's Photography is a top notch service run by Ann herself. She is about as helpful and friendly a person as I've ever met, and she made our wedding photos her top priority. She worked with us to get the types of photos we wanted and she was an excellent director of family and friends, all of whom loved working with her. Across the board, I have to rate her as 5/5 and that doesn't even capture the awesome service, person, and product. Cannot recommend more highly!

Ann has photographed some very special times for me, my wedding, the birth of my daughter, and beautiful spring pictures of the whole family. I will continue to have her photograph us for years to come.
