About Dunks

Dunks is my nickname, it has nothing to do with basketball and all to do with Dunkleberger being my maiden last name. I love, love, love photography, always have, always will. Other favorites of mine include: my family and friends (of course!), my wild and crazy boxers: Max and Banjo; running, the great outdoors, anything yellow or orange, road trips, making jewelry and making people smile.

I have been taking photos since I was a kid. In 10th grade, I was documented in the local newspaper stating that my dream job was to be a photographer. I initially went to college for it but changed to a geography major (a second love) because I didn’t really believe that I could turn photography into a career. I photographed my first wedding on film in 2002 and started taking on more weddings, events and portrait sessions on a part-time basis and finally, in early 2009, I made the decision to invest time and effort into making it a full-time business. Now the rest is history!

I am devoted to my clients, my passion for photography and telling your story. I love that I get to photograph people in many exciting stages of their lives: engagements, weddings, baby and family portraits (not always in that order!). 🙂 Shooting a variety of subjects keeps me fresh and I learn a lot about family dynamics and posing, through all of my subjects. One of the best feelings in the world is making people happy through the photos I take for them. I love capturing people at their best and preserving moments that can be enjoyed and relived, over and over.

I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do!
