"Everybody, everybody wants to love. Everybody, everybody wants to be loved. Everybody knows the love, everybody holds the love, everybody folds for love. Everybody feels the love, everybody steals the love, everybody heals with love." - Ingrid Michaelson To say that I love the words to this song up above is kind of an understatement. Somehow, I have made a career out of chasing love around and trying to capture it. It's really just that simple! I am moved by the beauty of love - and what better place to find love then at a wedding or in the face of a child? I've got a lot of love in my life and it reminds me daily how important my job is. My husband and I have been married for 13 years - it still seems like yesterday though! We have twins that were born in October of 2012 and the world's sweetest dog. They truly are the joys of my life - all 4 of them. But let's be honest, sometimes I need a happy photograph to remind me of that amid all the chaos. I first learned to love photography in college as a newspaper photographer and a lab assistant in the dark room (yup, it was all film back then). I've now been in the business of shooting weddings for 11 years and it's still a job that I would never give up. Learning more and more every year is a job perk that keeps me going! I'm definitely a photojournalist down to my core. Nothing motivates me more then true emotion. People often ask me what my favorite part of a wedding is. While there are so many things to love about a wedding I have to say I think it is the moment right after the ceremony when the bride and groom get to hug and celebrate with their family and bridal party...when the bride watches her mom hug her new husband, when the girls all giggly over the groom's face, when everyone screams with excitement, or when the groom and his dad laugh because the pastor called him the wrong name. I've always loved that the very best photographs are the ones that we could never have planned for. And this got me to thinking - what is it about weddings that cause so much emotion? And in the end I have decided that it is simply because family is important. Relationships are important. Love is important. Memories - life changing, crazy fun, heartfelt memories - they are important! I hope you'll trust me to capture these important memories! [Knoxville Wedding Photographer]
I have loved photography since I was young. I have always loved the thought of any emotion being captured naturally, in it's purest form of expression. My passion is born from being a romantic at heart and shooting a wedding like I was shooting my own, without missing a moment. I lived half of my life in Honduras and the most recent half in the USA which is where I have mostly grown as a photographer for weddings, engagements, and elopements.

I studied photojournalism at Western Kentucky University & that's where I developed the passion for storytelling. I never lost the childhood dream of being an artist & I think it gives me a unique edge to how I photograph people's lives. I don't want a simple snapshot. I chase emotion & frame it in a pleasing way. I have fallen in love with capturing your moments. [Louisville Wedding Photographer]
Three time Pulitzer Prize nominee Eva Russo is the owner and main photographer for Photo Lady Love, Inc. She was born in Chicago, raised in Italy, moved to France and then settled back in the United States. A graduate in photojournalism from the prestigious Newhouse School at Syracuse University, Eva uses still photography, video and audio in her photographic storytelling on both short and long-term projects. Eva received two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize for her two-year-long project documenting living and working conditions in the Richmond City Jail. Her work focused on the daily life and struggles of the inmates as well as mental health and recidivism issues. Her third Pulitzer Prize nomination was for her work documenting a Vietnamese community in New Orleans East as it recovered from Hurricane Katrina. As a staff photographer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch in Richmond, Virginia, Eva covered daily assignments ranging from little league games to political campaigns to the Queen of England’s visit to Virginia. However, her passion for social documentary projects has always been what makes her tick. Her accolades and award-winning coverage for the Richmond Times-Dispatch include coverage of the Winter Olympics, the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shootings, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi, the 2009 Presidential Inauguration and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. In 2010 Eva decided to embrace an exciting new adventure in her life and she founded Photo Lady Love, Inc. Applying the same storytelling concepts to a wedding day as she would to a newspaper story, Eva has devoted increasingly more time over the past few years to documenting joyful, tearful, momentous and exciting occasions in people’s lives. From wedding days to first babies, engagements to anniversaries, documenting love and joy has contributed a refreshing balance to Eva’s career and the stories she loves to tell. This new chapter in Eva’s career became an opportunity for further growth when, in the summer of 2012, Eva left her staff position at the Richmond Times-Dispatch, married her love and moved to the Washington, DC area. Eva now divides her time between documentary wedding and lifestyle coverage, freelancing for newspapers such as The Washington Post and The Washington Times, mentoring and teaching photography workshops with Momenta Workshops, documenting the work of local nonprofits and pursuing her love of food and food photography. Never letting the grass grow under her well-manicured photographer’s feet, but always stopping to smell the roses, Eva considers herself one of the lucky people who loves her job.
