...... when I get a glimpse at someone's tears of emotion, an intimate look between the bride and groom, tenderness between Mom and Dad.
..... capture the energy of the reception on my images.
......and as girl who doesn't love been around wedding dresses and beautiful decor.

My Style: I bring a photojournalist approach to your wedding day. I thrive on candid moments but also rely on natural poses when needed. Even though, I process my images to enhance the feel of the photo, but I dont' like to over process them as I think it takes away the authenticity of your photo. My goal is to capture your memories and the moments you missed, to capture the obvious and the unexpected. I work with another professional photographer, and with the two of us, your wedding day will be covered in all angles.

I get inspired by my surroundings but mainly by the couple, by what YOU decide to share with me.
I am not an "in your face" photographer. I am very discreet and unobtrusive everything from a distance. When I got married 12 years ago in France, I had a great photographer who knew I was not too keen on being photographed and he managed to capture our day beautifully while being very discreet, I want you to share the same experience.
I am very flexible and will cater to your requests as I want to meet your expectations ...and much more! Read less

We had a very specific look that we wanted for our wedding pictures. We wanted a photojournalistic style that captured moments rather than created them. Dominique is not only supremely talented, she also happens to be just about the loveliest person you've ever met. She took our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Our friends and family can't stop raving about Dominique's pictures. Everyone's first comment is how superb the pictures are! We can't say enough wonderful things about Dominique and can't recommend her strongly enough. We are recommending her to everyone!

We love Dominique! She was so easy to work with and truly captured the fun, loving nature of our daughter and son-in-law. When she posted her photos. I couldn't believe how beautiful they were. They brought tears to my eyes. She captured the love and emotions not only of the bride and groom but family and friends as well. Her photos are magical. Dominique is truly an artist.

This review won't be very different from the other reviews already posted, because Dominique is an absolutely fantastic photographer, no question about it.

I found her through my venue's preferred vendor list, and I do not at all regret our decision to hire her! From the beginning, she was so professional and responsive, which wasn't exactly easy since during most of my wedding planning, I lived in France and she was in Charlottesville. We still were able to keep in touch by email and phone calls, and we even got to spend time with her face-to-face during a summer trip she took to Lyon, France (where we were living at the time). As the date came closer, she was in touch to talk about group photos and all the other little details. She was so genuinely interested in and excited for our wedding, I could just tell in her voice. She has such a great eye for detail and knows where she needs to be to get the best shots. And the funny thing was that during the ceremony and reception, I didn't even see her! She is just really great at blending in and getting those candid moments caught on camera when you don't even know she's there.

Something else about Dominique's services that really added value for us was that she is bilingual French/English and was able to communicate with my French in-laws about where she wanted them to be for photos in French so they could understand. This was so helpful because I didn't have to worry about interpreting for them at all.

And of course...the photos. I can't say enough about them. People were moved to tears by looking at them, I'm serious. She let me know the preview photos were up on her blog a week after the wedding and I can't wait to get the rest!

I recommend her wholeheartedly!

Dominique was such a pleasure to work with! She was incredibly professional and organized, as well as attentive and creative. Although it rained the majority of the day (and we were determined to have an outdoor ceremony!), Dominique was extremely supportive and reassuring, and really helped me keep my anxiety under control! It was cold and lightly raining when we took the majority of our photos after the ceremony, however, the photos came out beautifully! The lighting was perfect, and the colors were amazing. Although my husband and I were cold, and the weather was dreary, this didn't come across in the photos at all - they looked incredible!! I've received so many compliments on our wedding photos, and many of our guests commented on how wonderful Dominique was at the ceremony and reception. I'm so thankful we got to work with her, and highly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer!

Dominique took time to understand exactly what moments and types of pictures we wanted captured on our wedding day. She was very responsive, energetic and the pictures were exactly what we wanted! They captured the emotions and moments very well! Thanks, Dominique, for allowing us to remember such a special weekend through our photos!

We absolutely loved working with Dominique. She was professional, fun, flexible, and she brought an easy-going, creative energy to both our engagement shoot and the wedding. Photographer is such an important part of a wedding, and I felt like I was in very good hands. She was very responsive and her services are well-priced. Dominique expertly captured not only the expected moments--family photos, etc.--but also the unexpected moments, like a quick smile between me and my new husband and silly dance moments. We joke that we've got to start a family, just for an excuse to work with Dominique again--baby pictures! ;) We recommend her highly.

I could not have been happier with Dominique for my wedding. She was increadibly friendly and professional, responsive and attentive, and her work product is amazing. She was in all of the right places at all of the right times, yet she was never in the way. She was very accomodating, happy to develop a wedding 'package' that fit our needs. A master a capturing the most important candid moments and the personality of her subjects, not only was she a joy to work with, her photos were...perfect. I would highly recommend Dominique to all of my dearest friends, and strangers (!), and would hire her again without hesitation!

Dominique was terrific in every way. She is a very talented photographer and captured all of the joy, beauty and warmth of my daughter's wedding. All of the "must have" shots were taken -- she missed nothing -- but she also caught many special candid moments. She and her assistant were unobtrusive but seemed to be everywhere. She was very easy to work with and has an absolutely delightful personality.

In all of the chaos and stress that comes with a wedding, Dominique Attaway was the one person I never had to worry about. She was organized, passionate, experienced, and fun to be around, and I was absolutely delighted to have her photograph my wedding. If I ever doubted my decision to not hire a videographer, that doubt was put to rest when I saw the photographs that Dominique took of my wedding day. She is a tremendous story teller, and her photographs perfectly captured our wedding from start to finish. And while I'll always be grateful for the beautiful pictures she took of my husband and I (and our families and friends), I'll never forget the calming effect she had on me leading up to the ceremony. She has a balanced and cool presence, and she put me at ease on more than one occasion. Dominique - Thank you for doing your job so extremely well. You are incredibly talented, and I hope all brides have the same experience with their photographer as I did with you!
