    West Virginia Wedding Photographers

    Capturing the vibe with photos that do your memories justice:

    vibrant & authentic photography by inclusive WV wedding photographers

    You’re not in the right place if you’re looking for:

    Overly posed portraits and staged moments: If you want to spend your wedding day performing for the camera, we’re probably not the best fit.
    Saving a few bucks on a newbie photographer: Wedding expenses add up quickly, but the peace of mind knowing your memories will be preserved by experts is priceless.
    Drab, colorless images: Rich colors are our thing, so we'll never mute the lush greens of the trees or the deep blues of the sky.

    You are in the right place if you’re looking for:

    Colorful, magazine-worthy photos that tell the story of your day from the big sweeping moments to the small details, without desaturating your color palette
    A highly experienced team comfortable navigating unpredictable weather, different lighting conditions, and sensitive family dynamics
    Responsive customer service ensures you’ll have our full focus since we’re a full-time dynamic duo, collaborating every step of the way

    “They could photograph you picking a wedgie and still make it the most beautiful picture of you ever taken.” - Becca & Eric

    the Oberports

    Hello! We’re Emily & Bobby, and we’re married West Virginia wedding & portrait photographers based in Charleston, WV. Documenting people thoughtfully & artfully is our jam. In our free time we love visiting Cape Cod, going to the grocery store (yes, really), and showering our two cats with affection.

    “They have a way of putting everyone at ease, which had a very calming influence on many of us before the ceremony when nervous energy was flying. Basically, they are wedding whisperers as well as artists.”

    “They have an incredible gift. It's like their lens knew us, despite meeting for the first time on the morning of the wedding. They captured so many gestures and faces and moments of our family that are so etched in my bones.”

    "Emily & Bobby aren't just photographers, they end up being confidants and general badass, take-control kinda folks. They will make sure your grandparents are minimally inconvenienced for family photos and somehow are direct but also very sweet while doing so. The Oberports are the real deal!"

    "The Oberports are the most professional and supportive wedding vendor you could imagine. They were the best investment we made in our wedding. I was very uncomfortable in front of the camera and they immediately put me at ease.”

    we believe...

    Y'all means ALL

    Everyone’s special milestones are worthy of joyful and creative photos. We feel strongly that discrimination has no place anywhere, and certainly not in the wedding industry. This is a supportive and welcoming space for all gender identities, sexual orientations, body sizes, races, and religions.
