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.
Your go to gal
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.
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.
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.
02. Sweets, Please
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?!
03. Fur Babies
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?!
04. I love Adventure
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
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.
