Remember how you felt, not just how you looked. Capturing depth of connection, authentic emotion, and magical light.
I believe in the connections between people. They are more palpable than most things in our lives, and I love to capture them on camera. I also love to capture light in all its forms, and let it help tell a story of who we are.
I am a photographer, an erstwhile musician, a mother, a mountaintop dweller, a dweller in the moment, and a truster of the human heart. Join me for some play with light and heart and joy, and let's see what images we find there.
"April creates an amazing vibe during her shoots (and always, really). She is warm and calm, but has an impressive enduring and creative energy. April’s photographs aren’t just photographs; she manages to capture the essence of each moment — the emotions, the story, the underlying body language. It’s incredible. My jaw was on the floor, photo after photo.” (Natalie, Richmond)
"I can’t say enough wonderful things about April. She’s a joy to be around, she’s accommodating, humble, authentic, funny, and truly amazing at what she does." (Malenka, Charlottesville)
"I had extremely high expectations after reading reviews about you and seeing your work on your website, but you still managed to exceed them by leaps and bounds." (Ashley, Richmond)
"You have such an incredible talent. We were so fortunate to find you. Your camera just melted away and you were another special guest at our wedding." (Brittany, DC area)
"I looked at the photos and immediately thought: 'Whatever they paid her, it was worth every penny. They capture the joy.'" (Aunt of Catherine, Nashville)

"I can't recommend April highly enough. She was such a calming and beautiful presence on our wedding day. We loved getting to share the day with her, and I am a little obsessed with how beautifully our photos turned out. She really listened to the types of photos I wanted, and what I was most interested in, and I am beyond thrilled with the outcome. I will use her again for all of our future events."
"We love April! She really listened to what we wanted and captured the little moments beautifully. We love the way she captures light. She managed to get the most beautiful photos without anyone noticing she was there. That was important to some photo-sensitive family members. "
