Hello there! I'm Hannah, a mama of two sweet boys (pictured with the camera) and wife to the most loving soul. Aside from photography I have a love for our two pups (pets are family too), beekeeping, hiking, playing the piano & accordion (yes those still exist), collecting crystals, gardening, and reading. I've been told that I am an "old soul" and well, I won't deny it!
My family is my world and through my love for them, I have found how important it is to treasure every moment. That's where photography comes in; a single image can make a moment last for eternity. Photographs are so much more than poses, prompted smiles, and lighting. Photos can show a person's greatest joys, their deepest sorrows, the softness in their eyes when they look upon the one they love, the excitement of a soon-to-be mother, the joy that a child finds in exploration, the depth of a relationship between souls who have faced battles together, and the raw feelings of a person who has so much to say but can't find the words. I aspire to capture all of those beautiful intricacies and more through my lens.
I am a self-taught photographer located near Winchester, VA where you can often find me going above and beyond to capture the perfect moment (even if I may look a little ridiculous at times). Natural light helps to create the most magical of images so it's always my preference! I look forward to learning and telling your unique story through my lens!

Behind the lens
How did we start?
"Capture every single moment, I don't want to miss a thing" - The words my husband (high school sweetheart), Joshua said to me the day before he left our baby and I to go to the other side of the world. The Army was sending him away, even though we already felt far away; we were living nearly 700 miles from our hometown. He said those words as he handed me a brand new camera that I was clueless about. For months it was simply my three-month-old, my camera, and I. When you're trying to keep your mind occupied, you learn fast. When you discover something that fills your soul with joy and creates a burning passion in your heart, you learn even faster. Looking back at that time in my life, I would have never imagined myself here, but there are no words to describe how grateful I am for this journey and for Joshua, who is the reason that I discovered my passion for photography.
Husband & wife
When you book Hannah Keller Photography LLC for a wedding you get not only one but two photographers. As a husband and wife photography team we balance each other well and bring a calm and collected "breeze" to your wedding day. Joshua is the comedic half of our team. If you need a laugh to calm your nerves he's your guy. He has a gift for creating unique images. I am the other half of the team that is happy to help and direct things when wanted so that the day goes smoothly. I've helped lace up brides' dresses, Joshua has helped florists deliver flowers, we've made sure that the bride and groom have drinks when they need them, we've delivered handwritten notes before the ceremony, and so much more. We treat each couple as if they were family and we want each wedding day to be flawless for them. We know how the nerves before the ceremony feel, how overwhelming all the tiny details can be, and how important it is to you to make sure this day is nothing but a celebration of love. We've been there, and we are here for you not only as photographers but as supportive friends. After being married for more than five years and being the best of friends for even longer, I'd say we make a pretty great team!
