Biography - Richmond VA wedding photographer



There are Third Eye Blind lyrics hidden throughout this website. See if you can find them. ;)

My name is Shalese (shuh-lease), and yes, when I give my name to the Starbucks barista, the white cup they put in my hands always has a new variation of the spelling.

I have always loved holding those aging prints in my hands and watching my parent's faces as they relive old memories.

In this very digital world, I want to be sure that your experience with me is a tangible one so that the magic of sitting amid a pile of old photographs and hearing the stories attached to each worn photograph isn't lost on the next generation.
