WIFE. DOG MOM. PHOTOGRAPHER. LAB TECH.
I am a natural light photographer based in Richmond, VA. I keep myself busy working nightshift in the lab with Bon Secours, taking care of my precious little corgi baby, and spending time with my handsome husband, Todd (see photos below for husband and puppy cuteness). I started my business prior to getting married in December of 2018, so if you get an email from Brittany Hamm, that's me! ;)
I graduated from JSRCC in 2018 with a degree in Medical Laboratory Technology. In my last semester of school, I was unemployed, but working 40 (unpaid!) hours each week in the lab for my clinical rotations. I decided to pick up my old camera and earn some much needed income! I've grown my business more than I imagined in the past year, getting new equipment, and meeting some amazing people along the way.
I am passionate about my photography business because I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I am fascinated by every different background and walk of life, hearing each couples story, snuggling babies, and getting to join in on all the fun family shenanigans. I have mostly worked with teens and families for one-hour sessions, but I am looking forward to growing my portfolio in wedding photography. It is such a beautiful thing to experience and even more so, a blessing to me as a photographer to be chosen to help a couple remember that special day forever.
God certainly challenged me in 2018 with school, being unemployed while in clinical rotations, running my own business, getting engaged AND married (in just under 3 months), and all that comes along with adult life. "Stress" was a huge understatement, but it has been incredibly rewarding and worth every bit of effort. I am in awe of the love God has for undeserving people like me and I'm really looking forward to what the future holds.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
Amber is my lovely assistant for weddings. She stays busy with her husband, two baby boys, their new puppy, and her many talents of singing at church, being a fantastic MUA, and making clothes for her newest business, Word & Heart Co.
