ANNIVERSARIES

But, I live for the real raw emotional moments of love

I love the pretty.

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still

I am not just a photographer.
I am a story teller.

so much more than pretty photos

......................

I believe that photography is a real part of your wedding day. Photography is the part that allows you to look back and relive all of the feelings you experienced on the greatest day of your life! 

The pictures that I capture on your wedding day tell your very own love story from the very beginning.

I can't wait to get to know you better

Let ME BUY YOU A COFFEE...

......................

I want  to form a friendship with you.

I try my best to make sure that all of my couples are a perfect fit for me & my photography style before officially booking.
You should be excited about your wedding photography!

After booking, I love getting to know my clients better through a complimentary engagement session that helps you warm up to the camera so that by your wedding day, we feel more like friends. This creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography because I want your wedding photos to be so much more than just pretty pictures.

THE vbw EXPERIENCE

I am based out of Richmond, Virginia (Chesterfield actually) But I LOVE to travel. My bucket list includes places like: Italy, Iceland, Peru, Australia, Ireland, Alaska, Maine & many others. Ask me about package discounts for traveling to weddings in these locations!

1 week after your wedding or engagement session I will post sneak peeks to my blog - these are always some of my favorite images! For weddings, your images will be delivered via the online gallery in 6-8 weeks. Engagement & portrait sessions take about 2 weeks to deliver the images.

I am a Canon girl! I currently use the 5D MKIII for weddings & portrait sessions and will bring along my SL1 for back-up & emergency situations. I own a 50mm 1.4 which is my go to lens for portraits & a 100mm 2.8L macro lens to capture those details. If there is a lens I feel that I need but currently don't own, I will rent it for your wedding day. I also own and use a variety of lighting equipment.

I am your "go to" gal

It's an honor to be a part of your big day.

WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT

I photograph couples who are looking to write their own love story through pictures, couples who may struggle coming up with the perfect words (a photo is worth a thousand of them), and couples who are each other's saving grace through thick & thin.

About Verlee

lover of memories, quality time & fur babies

Hello, lovelies! I'm Verlee (my friends & family call me V for short). I live in Chesterfield, VA with my husband, two step-children & three rescue pups. Most days, you can find me cuddled up on the couch with my dogs, planning our next family adventure. Quality time is my love language.

ABOUT VERLEE

lover of memories, quality time & fur babies

I'm most known for my caring personality and will do anything in my power to help those I love. People often refer to me as shy, or reserved but I think this just gives me the opportunity to observe and catch moments others may miss. I love serving the world by photographing couples in love, one moment at a time - it's these moments in our past that become our memories we hold dear.

ABOUT VERLEE

lover of memories, quality time & fur babies

I consider myself lucky to be able to give my couples a documentation of a memory that can really last a lifetime! 

If you're dying to hear more, here are five things you may not know about me.

the facts

verlee bishop weddings

01. I moved for love

from Idaho to Virginia (2964 miles to be exact)

May of 2011 I chased true love all the way across the country because I believed in love & I couldn't wait to take a chance on it!

Two years later, on August 4, 2013 we were married!

02. Sweets, Please

I have a serious sweet tooth, or teeth. If that possible.

I believe the best way to finish off a day is with a bowl of Ben & Jerry's ice cream & milk in bed (yes, I put milk in my ice cream). 
And please tell me I'm not the only one who has candy stashes hidden around their house?! 

the facts

03. Fur Babies

beagles, hound dogs & labs, OH MY!

We currently have 3 dogs (a beagle, hound & lab) but this could actually change on any given day. We actively foster dogs through FETCH a Cure and have had a total of 5 foster dogs in one year!
Happiness is puppy cuddles & beagle kisses. Am I right?!

the facts

04. I love Adventure

but I love being a homebody just as much.

Oh I know, the struggle is real. I believe that memories are made outside of your comfort zone & decisions NOT made, are decisions regretted. I based my moving across the country on this philosophy and it turned out pretty well. I love exploring new places with the people I hold dear but am always SO ready to sleep in my own bed.

05. I'm an Introvert

don't get me wrong, I LOVE people.

I find comfort in, and am able to recharge while observing. I love watching how people interact with each other and the world around them. I believe that there is an art in observing & I have found that art. 

I call it photography.
