Hey there! My name is Beth, and I am a pet and portrait photographer in Gainesville, Va. By day, I’m a technical writer for a government contractor. On the weekends, though, I put on my super hero outfit (which usually involves my trusty hiking boots) and I get to do what I really love – capturing your story.

There’s nothing that makes a hard day at the office better than coming home to tail wags and sloppy puppy kisses. That’s why I love capturing pets and their special connection with their people. There’s something truly special about the way a dog looks up at you – and not just when you have food in your hand. It’s a look of pure, unaltered, 100% organic love. I strive to capture that look.

My husband, dog, and I make up the little team that comprises Beth Koepper Photography. My husband is my business partner and Ranger is our mascot and cheerleader. Because our little family has both two legged and four legged members, I have a serious love for the joy a dog brings to a family. While I focus on pets, I capture all kinds of families – whether it’s a soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs., a soon to be family of three, or a family capturing their yearly photo, I love to photograph the emotion and raw life that being together can bring.

The Experience

Do you ever scroll through your photos on your phone? Which ones, no matter how much you need the extra space, could you never delete?

For me, it’s the day I brought home my pal, Ranger; the day I married my best friend; and every adventure our little family has along the way.

The birthdays, the weddings, the “gotcha days” – all of these memories are part of your story. My goal during sessions is to provide images that you will cherish forever, the kind you could never delete. And while you could always take a selfie to document life’s special moments, I provide an artistic, professional, and quality set of images that you can’t get from a phone. Don’t worry about capturing the perfect shot; let me focus on the details while you enjoy the moment.
