Elopement Photographers for Small Virginia Weddings
Shooting an elopement or small Chesapeake wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.
Members are ready to document any quick, pop-up, courthouse, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.
We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your romantic, modern, casual, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

I’m Mantas Kubilinskas. I am a Lithuania-born, D.C.-based photographer. Photography is more than my job. It is my hobby and my passion. As a photographer, every day is like Christmas for me. I get just as excited for each session as a kid admiring his wrapped gifts on Christmas morning. Each couple brings me the opportunity for something new and amazing. I love creating and capturing those moments of passion and happiness between two people. My work is all about action, composition and emotion. My vision is to catch the excitement, solemnity, humor, love, or happiness of a moment to be remembered for years to come. Whatever you feel the day of the session, you will feel every time you look at your photographs.I do not focus too much on the details or simply going through the same-old checklist of events to document. Sometimes to catch the action and feeling behind an event you have to look at the bigger picture, shoot from a different angle, tell a joke. My photography is not about me. It’s about you, about the couples. In my sessions, I direct couples to compose beautiful, natural photos, but what I love, is making them laugh. My images expose that genuine, human happiness couples look for in their photos. It’s my favorite part of what I do. I want you to be passionate about my photography style and vision too! Enjoy my portfolios here on my website. I look forward to making you laugh, capturing your story and creating breath-taking photographs to evoke those day-of emotions all over again.

Hi there, I'm Heather! And after 8 years as a newspaper staff photographer & editor, I moved into weddings & portraits full time in 2008 and continue to run my business full time. My husband Rob (a newspaper photographer for 20 years) is often a second shooter and photographs a few on his own each year. We have called Virginia home since 2002 and tend to spend most of our time near Richmond, Williamsburg, DC, and the Outer Banks. I only shoot about 20 weddings a year (and Rob does less) so I can provide flexibility and personal attention to every couple. My style is a mix of artistically captured moments, portraits, and candid portraits. True photojournalists at heart, we work unobtrusively so you can be free to enjoy the day instead of spending hours "smiling for the camera." Heather Hughes Ostermaier (formally Heather S. Hughes) has been published in USA Today, People, The Knot, and the "America 24/7" & "Virginia 24/7" books to name a few. She was also named Virginia's Small Newspaper Photographer of the Year and has won numerous awards for her lifestyle, sports, and wedding photography over the years. Both are graduates from Ohio University's prestigious Visual Communications program (where they met), taught at Truth with a Camera, and were accepted to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop in consecutive years.
