About Your Photographer...

photography Margo

Margo Ross Sears is a licensed, insured, professional photographer with 12+ years experience in photo restoration, enhancement, graphics, portrait and landscape photography.

Photography, art, and journalism are common skills in her family. Her father, Joseph Shankland (1928-2013) was a professional photographer and fine art teacher in Italy and the United States. Her uncle, David M. Spear, is a renowned American photographer with works in the Guggenheim and also the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her grandparents were lifelong newspaper owners, editors, photographers and writers. Her great-grandfather, Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941), was a famous American author /publisher/mentor to Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Gertrude Stein, Thomas Wolfe, Norman Mailer, Carl Sandberg and Ray Bradbury. Anderson was also owner/editor of two Virginia opposing newspapers simultaneously!

Margo primarily shoots a Nikon D7000 DSLR camera. She sometimes uses a weatherproof Fujifilm S1 DSLR camera as needed. Most of her photo editing is via Adobe Lightroom, PortraitPro and a few other programs.

Hey!  You found another Warm Fuzzy!
(from movie “Corpse Bride”) With this candle I will light your way in the Darkness. With this hand I will lift your sorrow. Your cup will never be empty for I will be your wine. And with this ring, I thee wed.

Applause

“Margo’s photography created memories that made the beautiful setting even more picturesque.” ~ Rhia & Jonathan Beeks, clients

“Margo was scouting the perfect shots and capturing every priceless moment…Margo was awesome, every picture was meaningful and perfectly composed. We knew they would look awesome, but were so absolutely blown away once they arrived shortly after the wedding. My Wife and I were in awe of the work Margo was able to do!” ~ Jared and Jennifer Stoutman, wedmates

“Margo is a fantastic photographer-she makes having your photo taken a great experience (and I hate having my photo taken). We love our gorgeous photos and will treasure these memories forever. I wholeheartedly recommend them! ~ Shana & Chris Lee, clients
