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.
"Our photo session experience with Audra was like a dream! It was our first photo shoot as a couple so we had no idea what we were doing. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the lens and was easy to work with. We were overjoyed when we received preview photos and even more elated to view our full gallery shortly after. Audra is both professional and personable which makes the experience of working with her feel comfortable and fun. She has a way of making her subjects feel confident which results in photos that portray beautiful emotion. Chad and I highly recommend Audra to any couples or families who need pictures done for any occasion."
"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 husband and I cannot recommend Audra enough! After she shot our engagement photos, we knew she would be the perfect fit for our wedding. I was nervous about getting photographed, but Audra made me feel incredibly comfortable and confident while providing clear direction that resulted in some seriously stunning photos! She handled the chaos of our giant family portraits like a champ, which was particularly tough since not many of them speak English! As a wedding industry veteran, Audra has an impeccable eye for detail and you can have total confidence that you're in good hands."
Incredibly talented, always listens to the couple's needs, flexible, generous, smart, artistic, kind, and fun! Audra was the absolute best. She made us feel so comfortable, even though we are camera shy. The wedding flew by in a flash, but I'm so grateful for the incredible photos which will last forever so I can enjoy the day over and over again!
