Barry Smedley, owner of Photography by Barry, finds inspiration in each client who walks through his studio’s doors. Drawing upon more than 17 years as a professional photographer, he captures joyful events such as weddings, engagements, and family gatherings with an eye toward style and grace. When he’s not snapping pictures of brides, grooms, and babies, Barry teams up with his wife, Claudette, to shoot tasteful boudoir photos at historic locations such as Colonial Revival–era bed and breakfasts and carriages drawn by wooly mammoths. In addition to earning compliments from his subjects, he nabbed a spot on MomentVille.com’s coveted Wedding Professional Hot List in 2011.
