Located in the heart of Winchester, VA’s downtown walking mall, Bridgeforth Photographics and Lauri Bridgeforth create beautiful imagery from Portrait Photography to Commercial Photography, Photo Restoration and Drone Photography. It takes an artist’s eye to see beauty in the everyday, uniqueness in the smallest detail, individuality in every portrait and grace in commercial terms. For more than three decades, Lauri Bridgeforth has practiced the art of photography, making the ordinary appear extraordinary. 

When Lauri first started in business 30 years ago, she was fresh out of Shepherd University’s (then college) Art Dept.  She had been taught to carefully compose images so that cropping really wasn’t necessary.  When she set up her darkroom, she metal-filed out all of the enlarger’s negative carriers so that the clear edge of her negatives would print as a black border.  She named the studio “Full Frame Photography” because no one else in Winchester was printing with that particular style.  Fast-forward 30 years, and her darkroom is now in her computer in the form of Photoshop.  While she truly misses working in the darkroom the name “Full Frame” is really no longer relevant, but the corporation name, Bridgeforth Photographics, encompasses all the new, fun and creative aspects of her business. What hasn’t changed is her devout commitment to her clients to create the highest-quality imagery within their budget, as she continue “Making the Ordinary Appear Extraordinary.”

Lauri works in settings ranging from the studio to outdoor parks, your front steps or even your backyard hammock.  From the comforts of your home to the exactitude of your company’s manufacturing floor, Lauri Bridgeforth can create imagery wherever you need her to create it. Her portfolio demonstrates control of your assignment, whether it be the sweep of architectural and landscape photography, the minimalism of product illustration, or the heart of your family portrait.  Now available…Lauri is now a licensed and FAA-certified drone pilot!  This adds a whole NEW direction of her work as she adds low-level aerial drone artwork to the list of photo services!

Corporate clients depend on Lauri Bridgeforth’s work to illustrate website pages, brochures and annual professional and investor reports.  Individual subjects demonstrate her eye for your story in an image. Her mastery of current and upcoming photographic techniques allows Lauri Bridgeforth to deliver a new and unique vision of your moments that will be forever preserved.  You always look your best in personal portraits and commercial presentations.  Her mastery of photo restoration creates treasured heirlooms from neglected attic items, allowing future generations to appreciate antique images thought to be lost.  While Lauri Bridgeforth is comfortable in any setting you prefer, her studio, in Winchester, VA, Full Frame Photography, provides a comfortable, controlled environment for studio photography.

Lauri can do on-site Senior Portraits, Newborn Photos, Commercial Photography, Manufacturing Photography, Family Reunion Portraits, Corporate Headshots, Maternity Portraits, Children’s Portraits, Couples Portraits, Engagement Portraits, Actor’s Headshots and much more.  Call today to schedule your next session.
