Hi there, thanks for stopping by! I'm Misty, the face behind the lens of Boheme Bridal. My business was formerly Moments by Misty Photography so if you are a little confused you are probably in the right place! Welcome to my new site and my new brand that I feel is a better fit for my whimsical, artsy, romantic style.
I have been shooting weddings since 2012 and early on found my niche photographing women & weddings. I'm a hopeless romantic and I love everything about weddings. I am drawn to dreamy, romantic captures and spontaneous, authentic moments. Give me a beautiful girl in a beautiful dress, a little wind and a little whimsy and my heart is content. I feel like I get the best brides, the kindest, most gracious and beautiful people who have entrusted me with their most special day and almost always become my friends. Probably the thing I am most often complimented on is how easy I am to work with. I do take my job very seriously and as a professional it's always my mission with each client that they love their photos and also love their experience with me, I want you to leave feeling beautiful & happy that we have crossed paths.
I definitely don't consider myself a photographer with a 'traditional' style. My approach for weddings is more documentary with an artsy flair combined with some intimate, romantic posing The wind is my favorite 'prop' and I love anything windswept, I love images oozing with romance and I love imperfections, I love the challenge of taking unpredictable things like the subject, the weather and the light and using them all together in a moment to create what I see as art. My processing style leans toward the film-y look and I have a deep love for timeless Black & Whites.
On personal style, I consider myself an extroverted introvert. I operate from a big, crazy, passionate, optimistic heart shaped by all my life experiences. I am fun, laid-back, genuine, quirky and warm. I am a quintessential Libra, I have a stong attraction (ie addiction )to coffee, dresses, bikram yoga, art and all things pretty and cozy. I am a breast cancer survivor, an animal lover (especially goldendoodles) and a lover of humanity and my passion for people & photography has taken me on several mission/photography trips around the world with Project HOPE and other organizations. I have traveled to and/or worked in Haiti, Nicaragua, Hawaii, Italy, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and three times to Uganda. 2019 will take me to Iceland and beyond.
I am licensed and insured and serve Va., WV, Md, DC areas and I also travel for destination weddings. (travel fees may apply). If you think I might be a good fit to tell your Love story then shoot me an email and lets meet for coffee and chat about your big day...
