About My Business:


When passion mixes with great quality, a fun photographer and phenomenal prices you receive portraits that “Make moments last a lifetime.” My name is Dana Dillon, a local photographer in Palmyra Va. My dream of being a photographer started at an early age when my cousin was always taking photographs of the family. In highschool, I Took multiple classes in photography and photojournalism and became the yearbook photographer and editor for Fairfax Highschool. Graduating in 1995, I was accepted to the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale for photography in which I did not attend due to being so far away from the family. Instead I choose my second dream working with the ocean. I graduated with a degree in marine technology in 2001. During my college years I managed an Olan Mills portrait studio in Wilmington North Carolina. After graduation I proceeded to work at another studio called Lundies Photography to broaden my horizons within the photography industry. There I expanded a lot more into the creative style of photography. Lundie Bradley was a great inspiration in my photography career. I was trained by her best friend Beverly to do wedding photography. From North Carolina I decided to move to Fluvanna, Virginia to pursue my own photography business. In 2004 I bought a house turning the two car garage into a photography studio. I have an array of outside scenery with the runoff of Lake Monticello in my backyard. Purposing the sights of a waterfall and beautiful rock surroundings I enjoy doing children, families and senior portraits right in my backyard. I have an indoor/outdoor studio for the convenience of the community. The outdoor studio consists of multiple different scenes and flower beds along with the runoff waterfall, while my indoor studio is your typical photographic studio with multiple backdrops and props. At Easter I do portraits with live bunnies and Christmas santa comes to visit. I provide a lot of outdoor location sittings including on the beach, in the park or at your home where everyone is comfortable. I specialize in wedding photography. The most enchanting day of your life all told in the story of your wedding day. A photographer should not only give you high quality photos, but also help you create photos that enhance the memory of your day. Traditional, Intimate, Unique, Creative and Photojournalistic photography styles, posed and candid, are all used to capture the emotions of your day. With over 10 years experience as a photographer, I photograph every event personally, ensuring that we are “making moments last a lifetime.”
