Hi, I'm Lisa Boggs, and I've been photographing weddings for 15 years. I'm a bit of a romantic (understatement!), so I couldn't be happier to work with people who are excited to be in love. I approach every wedding thrilled to be a part of my couples' unique story. So, whether you are shy and quiet or fun and loud, I want my photographs to capture who you are and what makes you special. 
If that sounds like something you'd like to talk a bit more about, shoot me an email or give me a call. I would love to learn more about your big day, particularly if we can chat over a cup of coffee or glass of wine!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Great Falls, Virginia, right outside of Washington, DC! I typically shoot weddings in the greater Washington, DC area (DC/MD/VA), but am available for travel anywhere. Fees are applied if travel is over 100 miles outside of DC.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

15 YEARS! I have photographed hundreds and hundreds of weddings and still remember them all!

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Bright, dynamic, artistic and full of life. It's my job to capture the personality of a wedding day, from my couple to their friends and family. I want my couples to look back on their photos and think, 'YES! That's exactly how it happened and it looks even BETTER in these photographs!'

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I do not have a physical studio, but love meeting up in person over coffee/wine/etc.! I also use Skype/Facetime as well.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a BFA in Studio Art, majoring in photography, painting and drawing. I am also a co-leader of CAP (Capital Area Photographers), a network of 2,400+ DC-Area Photographers that meets quarterly to help educate and bring together the local photographer community.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

-I am completely terrified of outer space. I don't know how I made it through the movie Gravity. I did, however, really like Interstellar, but that's only because I have a fascination with multiple dimensions and alternate universes. 
-I love extreme weather. You'll even catch me posting weather updates sometimes on Facebook. I refer to myself as "your friendly meteographer" (meteorologist + photographer). I have no meteorological background whatsoever, I just really love storms/weather phenomena of any kind! 
-I only have one joke memorized and I pull it out all the time at weddings. Most of the time my couples hear it, cringe, but then begin laughing hysterically, which is when I start photographing them like crazy. Works every time! 
-I have two active hashtags on social media that a good chunk of people recognize. One is #lisaboggsing, which is used when I'm a complete disaster. An example of this is when I repeatedly mess up the coffee brewing process multiple times in a given morning. The other hashtag is #likeaboggs. This is used when I'm dominating life. An example of this is when I ran out of Hershey's almond kisses, but MacGyver'd the situation by combining some chocolate chips and roasted almonds I found in the pantry. 
-I'm pretty sure I could consume only coffee, Thai food and wine for the rest of my life and be perfectly okay with that!
