“Capturing your Wedding Story anywhere in the US and beyond”

 

At the age of 6, my father placed his Leica camera in my hand and showed me how to look through the viewfinder to take a picture. Everything changed for me in that moment. Taking the images, seeing them processed and becoming a print was magic to me.

My Name is Ann Norment and I love photographing people, especially during a wedding! My goal is to capture the emotion of your day. The special moments when your grandmother holds your hands, when your father sees you for the first time in your gown and when your future father in law helps his son with his coat and tie. The emotion you both feel when you see each other for the first time. Your first dance as husband and wife. Your best friends trying to hold their composure during the toasts. My role as your photographer is to preserve all of these important moments as they unfold throughout your wedding day.

It is an honor and responsibility that I do not take lightly when clients choose my services to capture one of the most important days in their life; the joining of two families! I love to tell a story. Your story, with all of the laughter, joy and happy tears from your wedding day. The end result is a beautiful heirloom album full of memories that you will cherish for a lifetime and will share with your children and grandchildren.

I have a very dynamic team of photographers that are extremely talented! My other lead photographer is the amazing Linda Packard who is also a certified professional photographer and has won awards in the International Print Competition. Terri Smith is our assistant and will be graduating from Winthrop with a degree in Photography and Fine Art. In the office, you will find Joy Rogers who keeps everything running smoothly.

In 2010 I made the decision to take my work to the next level, learning from some of the top professionals in the industry. My dad always said, “It’s about the light” and I have heard this repeatedly from my mentors. My education will never stop because I always want to continue to grow and provide the best possible work for my clients. In 2013, I  completed my studies and became a Certified Professional Photographer through Professional Photographers of America. I aspire to become a Master Photographer through them as well and will achieve that goal this year.

I believe whole heartedly in volunteering for charities. Flashes of Hope at the Levine Children’s Hospital is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. I also strongly believe in Operation Smile. They are a charity that raises money for children in need of cleft pallet surgery through photography studios that run campaigns every year during a special day of photography to raise awareness and money for these surgeries.

 

Now you know my story – I would love to hear about yours and have the opportunity to capture it for you!
