The weird, wonderful wildness of love and life — the big adventures, the quiet moments, the small smirks, the fleeting touches, the quick kisses, the little squeezes, the deep belly laughs, the long embraces, and everything in between — are worth documenting, preserving, and tucking away close to your heart. In the way that a poem strips down everything and forces you to catch your breath and take in the wonder of the world, my goal is to tell your story the same way through photographs. Documenting the profoundly beautiful moments of your life in Charlottesville, Virginia and destinations around the world.
I'm a photographer based in Charlottesville, Virginia, a quaint town nestled in the middle of vineyards and Blue Ridge mountains. Capturing memories for amazing humans is such a wonderful privilege that I take seriously. Moments, big and small, are what life is all about — let's document your moments and show the world how beautiful this crazy thing called life is.
I strive to tell stories through my work and create images that are artful, romantic, and full of light.
"I am so thrilled with how my boudoir photos turned out — they are *stunning*! Doing a boudoir shoot was something that pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I'm so glad I did it! I was nervous walking in the door, but you made me feel at ease from every moment thereafter. I'm in my 40's and feeling good about my body, so why the heck not? The shoot itself and the resulting photos made me feel a fluid flux of beautiful and strong, feminine and soft, sexy and seductive. Now I have these to remember my 40-something-year-old self, as well as a little gift for my partner. I highly recommend doing this if anyone is even entertaining the idea... which is where I sat on the sidelines for awhile, admiring the photos Audra posted and just thinking how beautiful they are. What are you waiting for? DO IT!!"
"Audra was spectacular! Cannot recommend her highly enough and cannot put into words how special our day was through her lens. We will treasure the photos and memories she captured!
In addition to taking beautiful photos, Audra provided wonderful guidance on photos we might want to have (and hadn't thought of!), and worked with some funky lighting to make our elopement extra-memorable. Not only was she a fantastic photographer, but a lovely human to be around and we'll look forward to finding an excuse to take photos with her again!"
"Audra is wonderful! Her attention to detail and capturing authenticity of her subjects are part of what makes her work so special. Not only is the final product gorgeous and frame-worthy, but working with Audra is so much fun. Her approach and positive attitude make you feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. I absolutely loved my portrait session and would not hesitate to book her over and over again. Her professionalism, creativity and consistency lend to being the perfect wedding and portrait photographer. If you're looking for someone to capture a special time in your life, Audra is your gal!"
"My new wife and I are overwhelmed with gratitude to have Audra be our wedding photographer. It was clear from first introductions that she wants to bring a personal touch to her work. She gave us incredible engagement photos and made it easy for two awkward silly people to look great by giving us candid direction and pointers during the shoot. Covid threw a wrench in our original wedding plans, but our outdoor courthouse ceremony exceeded our expectations and she played a major role in helping us bring the specialness and whimsy that her photos capture so well. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, and tons of gratitude."
"I was lucky enough to get to do a boudoir session with Audra recently, and it was SUCH an incredible and empowering experience! She did a great job of helping me feel comfortable and at ease all throughout the shoot, and she directed me so well in terms of posing! I left feeling like a goddess — and the photos were absolutely stunning!!! Hands down my favorite photos of myself EVER."
"Due to the pandemic, my husband and I have to postpone our wedding multiple times. Audra was always flexible in regards our changes and worked closely with us to make sure that we had everything that we need. She was always just one quick email or text away which made the “re-planning” period so much more manageable.
When it came down to our wedding day, she was amazing. She is an incredible photographer with an impressive artistic eye always looking for that perfect shot. She is also very was easy to work with and made everybody feel comfortable. Everybody in attendance told my husband and me that they were impressed by her professionalism and kindness. While getting married with 8 guests on a rainy day in January was not our original plan, Audra did an INCREDIBLE job at making our wedding absolutely perfect."
"Audra truly has a magic touch! She knows exactly how to make you feel beautiful, confident, soft and sexy. The way Audra was able to capture me in a photo changed the way I see myself, and made me proud of the body I’m in."
