My name is Gaelen Smith.
I grew up in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where I learned to celebrate natural, organic, timeless beauty.
I believe that reflects what I aim to capture through wedding photography- to create a photograph that tells your story through honesty, simplicity, elegance, and beauty.
Even though I have predominantly been serving the east coast with Wedding Photography since 2012, but would love to join you in your story, wherever it is being told.
My service rates begin at $1800 and I can't wait to craft a perfect package for you that meets all your needs

Gaelen was AWESOME to work with. I could stop at that statement but I will explain further for all those brides trying to find the right photographer for their big day. From the very beginning he was timely in his responses and super friendly. I was also shocked with the price, in a good way. The quality of his work is definitely worth top dollar, however he kindly doesn't charge that. In addition to wedding pictures he shot my husband and I's engagement shoot. He was very flexible in scheduling and rescheduling because of rain and he had great photography spots and suggestions. We went to a rustic/rural area that he knew of and the pictures came out amazing. He was also so nice and helpful in the poses to do because we are no models. A few weeks before the wedding he reached back out to me asking when and where we would start for the day of the wedding. He arrived at the venue right on time and brought a friend to help take photos which I thought was great! He was super sweet and friendly the whole day but was also non intrusive which is hard balance as a photographer. When we did our group photos he remained cool, calm and collected and was able to wrangle up our families and bridal party effectively and in a timely manner. The photo's turned out so great, we are so happy with them. I could not recommend Gaelen more!Sent on 09/21/2016

Gaelen did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos as well. He was so flexible when we had a last minute change in the date of our wedding, thanks to Winter Storm Jonas, and still pulled through and came to take our photos even with the threat of so much snow! We could not be more pleased with how the photos turned out!Sent on 04/21/2016
