Wedding photographer based in northern va

serving the DMV and worldwide.ESTD. 2016

I'm a visual enthusiast with a degree in Arts Management. My passion for photography was ignited as I immersed myself in a niche magazine showcasing a diverse array of photographers, and imagining myself being one of them.

My style is mostly photojournalistic, embracing natural and romantic elements. In each wedding, my aim is to craft something different and unique, capturing a set of storytelling moments that reflect the essence of the day.

What truly drives me is the moment when my clients receive the picture, and tell me how they love them. Witnessing the beauty of couples starting their own families is a heartwarming experience for me. 



"She made the entire process very easy"

Villa did an excellent job in capturing beautiful and candid photos throughout our wedding day. She required hardly any direction and knew exactly what to do given the setting, timeline, and weather to give us the best pictures we could have hoped for. She made the entire process very easy.

"My husband and I are very camera-shy, but Villa helped us feel relax"

Villa is a very detail-oriented photographer and it has been amazing to work with her on our special day. My husband and I are very camera-shy, but Villa helped us feel relax, and she got the best angles and the most important moments you will want to look back in the future. We 100% recommend working with Villa!

"Efficient, patient and has a great aesthetic taste"

Villa is efficient, patient and most importantly, has a great aesthetic taste. The photos are exactly the feelings and style I was envisioning. Before & during the wedding, she went through my notes and shot list, spent 8+ hours at the venue capturing everything from jewelry & accessories, candid moments with family & friends, to all the key events like the first look, ceremony & first dance. Thanks to Villa, we will be able to cherish these special memories forever.
