In 2010, Doug received an Accolade of Excellence from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).  In the summer of 2011, Karen won the Blue Ridge Bridal Show "Best Kiss" photo competition.  We photograph a limited number of weddings during the year, take a look at our wedding gallery, make an appointment to view our wedding books and chat with us in our studio. 

Middleburg Photo is a member of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International and National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Please email us at Details@MiddleburgPhoto.com.


We built our studio in the summer of 2014 so we could share our love of photography with you.  Open by appointment we are excited to show you our style of photography,  choose your prints and Doug can print for you while you wait or pick up at a convenient time.
