I’m Aimee. I'm a wedding + portrait photographer documenting moments and telling stories in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and wherever else love takes me.
I believe in color. I believe in letting moments unfold and catching genuine emotions.
I want you to have the best experience imaginable. As a wedding photographer, that means I'll put everything I've learned in my years of photographing weddings to use to help you, guide you, and make things a little bit smoother. Looking out for the unexpected, sharing my knowledge, and making everything just a little bit easier. So that you wring every last drop of awesome out of your photography. Just taking beautiful photos is only half the job.
The people I photograph embrace their quirks as part of what makes them truly beautiful. They aren't afraid to be a little goofy, sassy, or human. I'm lucky to use my photos to tell their stories.
I'm known for my warm, sunny, genuine photos of weddings and people, and for helping my clients relax and have fun in front of the camera. My couples say I'm a calming, cheerful presence on their wedding day. I'm with you and on your team every step of the way. I'll get to know you, and what makes you tick, before you're ever in front of my lens, and we'll keep building that rapport all the way through the end of your wedding night. There's no secret sauce... comfortable, happy people look good in photos.
My photos have been featured in such wonderful places as Catalyst Wedding Co, A Bicycle Built for Two, Capitol Romance, Richmond Wedding Collective, C Magazine, and Charm City Wed.
Take a look around. Peek into my work and my life. See what other people have said about me. Read my FAQs. Or throw caution to the wind and say hello already. I can’t wait to meet you!

Fantastic engagement photo session!
From start to finish, we enjoyed working with Aimee and would recommend her to anyone. She had an incredible way of making us feel at ease during our engagement session, and not like we were in front of a camera the entire time. For two reserved people, her guidance every step of the way was invaluable! She has an impeccable eye and really delivered on the style of pictures we wanted.Sent on 07/13/2020

Great Woman and Great Photographer!
We instantly clicked with Aimee, right from our first meeting with her. It was important to us that we liked our vendors as people, not just professionals, and we got that and more with Aimee!
Since we hired Aimee before we hired our coordinator, her advice was invaluable to our timeline and aesthetics. She answered countless questions and coordinated seamlessly with us and our other vendors. When the day of the wedding came, she was on time, kept to the schedule, and was just fun to be around. Many of the members of our wedding party told us how much they liked Aimee and her assistant. During the actual party, they blended in so much that I honestly forgot they were there! She really went the extra mile for us.
While we haven't seen the full album yet, the engagement and first look pictures that we have seen exactly capture the look we were going for.
Aimee is a great person and a great photographer. We can't recommend her enough!Sent on 12/16/2019

Aimee is a wedding photo wizard!
Working with Aimee was one of the first decisions we made when planning our wedding and we could not be happier with that choice! She is creative, fun, and extremely organized. Leading up to our wedding, she was super responsive and helpful in planning our timeline. She made taking formal photos a good time and expertly captured everyone partying on the dance floor. I would recommend Aimee to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer!!Sent on 12/02/2019
Aimee Custis Photography's reply:Sara, you and Scott are so lovely and it was a pleasure to work with you to capture your gorgeous wedding day. Thank you so much!
