Hi! I'm Aimee

I'm a wedding and portrait photographer,
a visual storyteller, and a feminist. 
(I drink my coffee iced.)

I started this crazy adventure six years ago, when I picked up a camera for the first time since I was twelve. When I did, it was like I'd been doing it all my life. 

I adore touching people's lives and telling their stories with my camera. To me, that's what photography is all about -- storytelling. Along the way, I've photographed everything from a sequin filled bike-ride-surprise- proposal, to an emotional afternoon alone at the courthouse, to a majestic 300-person fete. What they had in common is that they were filled with stories, and filled with love. 

On a personal note, I'm an outspoken introvert who delights in the hour before sunset, long summer days, fantasy novels, and wearing sandals. I love French cooking and peonies. I am a total nerd. People always seem surprised by it, so I'll tell you now that I'm rather tall.   

I'm happy to travel anywhere to photograph a wedding for a great couple, though you'll usually find me in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland as well as New York City, Ohio, and the Bay Area.



The people I work with tend to have a lot in common. You want warm, sunny, genuine photos you'll love and that last as long as you do. Whether you've spent a lot of time in front of a camera or none at all, you want to relax.  You want to not have to worry. 

Getting married? My clients host weddings that reflect their values — whether that's an awesome civil ceremony with a rainbow chuppah, an overflowing celebration with family, friend, and amazing food and drink, or a church ceremony just like the one your parents had 40 years ago. Whatever it may be, you're choosing the things that are important and authentic to you and letting the rest go.




I'm known for my warm, sunny, genuine photos of weddings and people, and for helping my clients relax and have fun in front of the camera, and my team creates beautiful images full of emotion and focusing on real moments.

What's it like to work with me? Couples say I'm a calming, cheerful presence on their wedding day. I'm with you and on your team every step of the way. I'll get to know you, and what makes you tick, before you're ever in front of my lens, and we'll keep building that rapport all the way through the end of your wedding night. There's no secret sauce... comfortable, happy people look good in photos.


How do you know I'm the right photographer for you? 

- You love the way my photos look + feel
- You'd enjoy spending a whole day with me
- The way I communicate 'clicks' with you.

But... I don’t just take photos. I work to be a partner and guide from the moment you contact me, to the day you unwrap your wedding album for the hundredth time. Isn't that how it should be?



My photos have been featured in such wonderful places as Catalyst Wedding Co, the Washington Post, A Bicycle Built for Two, Capitol Romance, Richmond Wedding Collective, C Magazine, and Charm City Wed.

What good is a superhero without a trusty sidekick? These AMAZING photographers are the jelly to my peanut butter, the Sonny to my Cher, the pepper to my salt. They're an integral part of the Aimee Custis Photography magic! On a wedding day, I'll have one of them by my side. You can also work with these talented guys on their own as well, like on days that I'm already booked for another wedding!
