Meet your photographer!
Hi! My name is Brittany Thornton and I'm so glad you're here!
I've been taking photos professionally for the last 14 years! I started taking paid clients in 2009, and after moving 3 times and holding many different jobs, finally transitioned to be a full-time photographer in 2018.
In April of 2022, I married my husband, who is an Air Force fighter pilot and we will be welcoming our first child, a baby girl, in September 2023.
We moved from Destin, FL to Hampton, VA in June of 2023 and I am no longer taking clients for the rest of the year. However, I am booking wedding clients nation-wide starting February of 2024.
I know there are a million photographers you could choose from, so let me tell you why you should choose me!
- I believe that having your photos taken should be easy and fun... even if you have littles running around everywhere! My job is to basically invite you on a fun outing, and capture how you are in real life.
- While I do take some classically photos, I am aware that if you feel awkward, you will look awkward. You are real people, and photos should capture who you are, so most of my photos will be taken while you are moving to some prompts!
- While I value my work, I also believe photos shouldn't cost an arm and a leg! All of my sessions are tax free and include rights to all of your digital images!
-I am not going to take YOUR photos for the sake of MY social media or the sake of staying trendy. My goal is, and has always been, to provide photos that will last for generations and be a timeless capsule of how you were in this stage of life.
- I'm on your terms. I'm here to serve you! Whether its for your wedding, family or general portraits, our sessions are all about you! My promise is to be professional but fun and do my best to make your photo dreams a reality!
"Working with Brittany was a dream. Family photos with two littles can be very stressful, but Brittany made it so fun. She was extremely patient when the kids were having moments and so creative with he poses and prompts to help ensure every photo was great. We loved our experience and can't wait to work with Brittany again!"

"Brittany is a DREAM! We have had the opportunity to work with her for the last 3 years. She photographed our engagement photos, wedding, AND family pictures! We were supposed to get married in 2020, while we all know how that turned out, she was so easy to work with and the ever changing reschedule of dates. She is everything you want in a photographer for every occasion. Professional and FUN. My husband and I always feel so comfortable!"

"Brittany was an absolutely amazing wedding photographer. From the start she made the wedding process so easy. She was more than a photographer, she was a friend. Someone who I could vent to about wedding planning troubles, helped me navigate wedding drama, and made me feel beautiful when I didn’t! Her photos were absolutely stunning!
She was quick, punctual, extremely organized, knew everyone’s name (which helped so much with organization!) , respectfully navigated stressed/angry parents, and made the day all about me (the bride). She was always on my side and made me feel so comfortable. Brittany is not your typical wedding photographer. She actually cares and is amazing in every single way!
After the wedding Brittany moved to Florida and we used her again for very special family photos while we were on vacation. She was so great navigating physical disabilities with a family member- she treated her just as a normal human being which was so nice. She was great with our nieces ( 2 & 5). We can’t wait to see the end results bc we know Brittany is the best!! Brittany is a blessing and we are so happy to have her in our lives. We will miss her in Texas but know she is off to do great things!"
