Hi there! I’m Annamarie, owner of Annamarie Akins Photography, and I live on the east coast. I enjoy traveling to capture love stories in a genuine way, and create a final collection of images that blend elegant portraiture with the beautiful moments that naturally unfold on a wedding day.
In my experience I’ve learned that the best images result from spending time getting to know my couples and their story so that I can capture their love and laughter in a sincere way.
I live in an old house (with virtually no closet space!) just outside of the city in Richmond, Virginia, with my husband + high school sweetheart, Ryan, and our sweet pup, Lexie. Some of the things I love most include relaxing with
them and friends in our backyard, a good coffee date, and trying new local restaurants. I’m a self-professed traveling homebody — as deep as my love is for exploring new places, sometimes there’s no place I’d rather be than cuddled up on the couch with my french press and a good book.
But I love that my job is constantly allowing me to visit new places and build new relationships with the most incredible people!
I believe that your wedding day is just the beginning of a life long adventure with your best friend and I can’t wait to get to know you or to help tell your story!
