"april has a very special way of connecting with people"

I learned about April through a coworker who had just used her in her wedding. After looking through her photo gallery I just knew that April was the photographer I wanted for my wedding day! All of her pictures were flawless- so light, bright, elegant, timeless, and dreamy which is exactly what I wanted! April has a very special way of connecting with people and making them feel at ease in an unfamiliar environment and she was able to get my husband out of his shell by the end of our session!

Fast forward to my wedding day- April blew my expectations for a wedding day photographer out of the water! She showed up early and was such a calming spirit for me throughout the day. April made me feel so beautiful the entire day- if you are wanting a photographer that will be your constant hype woman, she's your girl!!

April puts her heart and soul into her work and her passion definitely shows through her photos. She has a loving, servants heart and her desire to make her clients feel their best is unmatched. My husband and I have moved 4 hours from April but regardless of that she will always be who we reach out to for any photos that we want done, we LOVE April!!

"i cannot recommend april enough"

I cannot recommend April enough as a wedding photographer! She did our engagement and wedding pictures, and they were PHENOMENAL! Not only are the pictures beyond beautiful and something we will treasure forever, but she was also incredible to work with throughout the process. She is easy to contact, flexible, and makes you feel comfortable throughout every stage.

"she made my dream wedding photos happen"

April has does an AMAZING job every time I have done a shoot with her. You can tell she really puts a lot of effort and detail into each photograph she takes. She has the sweetest personality as well, to make you feel comfortable in front of a camera. I found her through searching on social media, looking for a fine art photographer who makes pictures light, bright and airy. She made my dream wedding pictures happen with her creative eye! Would highly recommend April to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer!

"the perfect person to photograph our wedding"

I found April by a family member recommending her and I looked up her profile on Instagram and immediately fell in love with her light and bright photos!! I knew I wanted elegant and bright wedding photos.

I contacted her and met her in person and knew she was the perfect person to photograph our wedding. She is kind, easy to communicate with, always there to calm my nerves, and excellent at prioritizing those special unique moments I wanted captured on our wedding day. She took our engagement and wedding day photos. I felt at peace in her presence rather than a ball of anxiety.

On my wedding day, just her voice calmed me when directing us in photos. She built me up with her encouraging words throughout the day! Her business is much more than photos, it’s her kindness and life-giving spirit and prayers. I can’t recommend her enough!

Frequently asked questions

Do you shoot film or digital?

BOTH! There are moments throughout your day where I will shoot more than the other based on light, however film is timeless - and you deserve timeless images.

do you travel?

YES! Fun fact, I thought I was not going to live in the USA at one point in my life. I love traveling for sessions and weddings. Feel free to ask me about a custom travel quote.

is a second shooter included?

YES! Second shooters are included in all wedding collections. My second shooters are the kindest of people that I fully trust and love.

posed or candid moments?

BOTH! I believe you need those "looking at the camera" photos, but prompting you two to create real emotions is what I love to capture most.

is an engagement session included?

YES! Engagement sessions are included! Engagement sessions allow me to get to know you two more as well as make you two feel like pros behind the camera!

How long have you been a photographer?

I asked for a camera for my 21st birthday. Within days I had friends asking me to take photos of them for their college graduation. Four months later I photographed my first wedding. Then in 2020 I added film to my process.

DO YOU USE ASSOCIATE SHOOTERS?

Everyone who hires April Whinery Photography works with me, April, directly. 

do you include black and white images?

YES! Black and white images tell a story in a seamless way.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY YOU SHOOT FILM?

Film is timeless. It is a piece of history. It captures light and details in a way that makes you want to stare at the image forever. For more on why I shoot film, feel free to read my story on my About page.

I am so thankful for relationships with my clients that are built in a special time in your life and continued throughout every beautiful season.
