You’re here now, so I thought I’d let you in on the photography obsessed person behind the camera.
I am a DC, Virginia, and Maryland based wedding and lifestyle photographer. It’s pretty awesome to be located in the DMV in the Northeast where I’m lucky to serve couples in all the neighboring states. But let’s be honest, you should know I’ll jump on any opportunity to travel anywhere for my couples. I love adventure and documenting beautiful places.
I can be loud and I love to have fun. I also value being still and getting deep. I describe myself as an extroverted-introvert.
My photography style is journalistic and creative portraiture. Creativity to document candid moments between two people who are wildly crazy about each other is what fuels my passion. I will for sure help guide and pose you when needed, but ultimately let your individuality tell the story. My goal is that years from now when you look at your photos, I hope you feel the love, laughter, and bliss all over again.
If that describes everything you want in a photograph then I want to get to know you! With your unwritten stories and me as a trusty third wheel, we can create beautiful memories together!

Can't beat her style
Barbarah came recommended to me by a co-worker of mine. My fiancé and I had Barbarah shoot our engagement photos where we live -Old Town, Alexandria. We are getting married up in Newport, RI, so it was important to us that our engagement shots capture the life we have outside of the D.C. area. Barbarah not only captured the essence of Old Town in the fall, but she captured my fiancé and my personalities in the photos. The smiles that were on our faces are the smiles we give to each other every day. Friends and family, some of which are professional photographers themselves, raved about how Barbarah really captured our connection and love through the photos. Her editing always amazes me and I just love her style. Had I not already chosen a local photographer to shoot our wedding, I would have happily asked Barbarah. Thank you, again!Sent on 11/21/2019
Barbarah Perttula Photography's reply:OH WOW! So sweet of you Leigh! I am SO SO glad you love the photos, I know that day wasn't the best with Dave feeling unwell, but you guys killed it! I am sure your wedding will be memorable with your current photographer, can't wait to see your photos from that day!

The best photographer!
Barbarah did both our engagement photos and wedding photos. She is friendly, easy to work with, professional and fun! Our photos turned out beautiful and she got them back to us super quickly! Barbarah is open to doing fun and silly photos along with the serious ones. She happily embraced our two dogs and horse being in our engagement photos and worked well with our personalities. Definitely consider using Barbarah for your wedding or any other event, you won't be disappointed!Sent on 05/18/2019
