I’m Dwayne White, a wedding photographer from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I am also a portraiture and event photographer.
I begin my journey in photography when I was in high school but it wasn’t until I was about 20 years of age when I borrowed my cousins Pentax film SLR camera and started photographing everyday life. I later took photography classes while earning my AS degree in Business Administration from Tidewater Community College in 1999. I went on to receive my BFA degree in graphic design and minoring in marketing from Old Dominion University.
I started my career with portraiture and event photography in 2004, and quickly gravitated towards the wedding industry in 2007. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings from all over, and each wedding couple express to me time and time again what a wonderful gift I have. Every wedding that I have photographed has given me the opportunity to witness a tremendous amount of special moments in a couples life together. All of these weddings have helped shape the person and wedding photographer that I am today.
After the wedding day passes, there are only two things you take home with you; each other and your photos. My ultimate goal is to simply tell your story through the images that I’ve photographed. When you look at the portraits on your wall, I want you to smile as you remember every giggle, embrace, and laugh-out loud moment. The purpose of your time with me is not just about photography, it is about art.
I know that real connections in front of the camera can start with real connections behind it, so if you’ve made it this far, I’d love to meet with you. Feel free to contact me no matter where you are, for coffee, a mid-day margarita, or even a Skype session. Let’s get to know each other and start planning your special day.
