Becca and Porter
Porter always talks about how much he respects me as a teacher and over time he has helped me grow as a photographer. We talk art, we have gone out and taken photos together. He wrote a wonderful letter for me for a grant a few years ago in which he said that, "Cara took to photography the way a fat kid takes to a greasy cheeseburger." I got the grant. Porter has been a great cheerleader for me in my photography and I am proud to call him my friend. I have introduced him to some of my friends who have gone on to become friends and clients. Heck, so many people stop me and ask about my ink that I carry around his business cards.
I was honored to shoot Becca and Porter's engagement photos and even more so to shoot their wedding. Despite the rain, it was obvious that these two people love not only each other, but their friends and family. It was a wonderful day.

Cara Walton is a purely accidental artist. She teaches high school students World History and likes to take pictures. Photography and art help her to stay sane in dealing with the day-to-day stress of her job and life in general.
She lives in Harrisonburg with her husband, daughter, two cats, and an obscene amount of Star Wars toys and other geeky items.
She mostly likes to take pictures of things that are in various states of decay. The history teacher in her likes to imagine the story behind what she is photographing, imagining the story of what used to be. She has also done several 365 self-portrait projects to force herself to be in front of the camera, instead of just behind it.
Cara has had photography displayed in various venues in Harrisonburg including Larkin Arts, Spitzer Art Center, Clementine, The Arts Council, Pure Eats, Ice House Studios, The Lady Jane, Three Notch’d, and The Artful Dodger. She was awarded an Advancing the Arts Grant from the Arts Council of the Valley in 2014 and recently had work accepted in juried competitions at the Shenandoah Valley Arts Center in Waynesboro, the 1650 gallery in Los Angeles CA, and ArtSpace in Richmond, VA. Her work was also included in a digital display in the Louvre in Paris as part of the opening reception of the Exposure Awards 2015.
