Because we should surround ourselves with the ones we love.


WebsiteSelf-1Hey 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.
