Peggy Bair

"Seize the Moments"

Keeping it real since
• 2002 •

Hey, there! Peggy Bair. Yes, it's Peggy and not Margaret...Irish, with irrepressible ringlets and a farm linage. I like to buy my produce and eggs from locals and farmers markets. I'm an animal lover who secretly binge-watches nature shows and, of course, am always on the lookout for interesting cinema. I have a high standard for creativity, love a great original script and a good story. I have spent my life and career documenting photo stories of everyday people, where I believe the sweetest originality and surprises unfold. My mantra is that "trends may come and go but real life never goes out of style". - Peggy Bair

More than any other comment from wedding couples, the one I hear the most is how fast the wedding day went by. Immersion in what you are experiencing and trusting the visual professional you choose is the best way to preserve these fleeting moments. 
Breath in the beautiful. Immerse yourself in your life. This is where the visual magic happens.
Who you are is exactly why the people who you've invited to your events are there to celebrate with you. When you view your pictures, you should see that uniqueness and originality. Your soft chuckle or boisterous laugh - in either case - this is what makes you...you. 
This individuality is what attracted me to photojournalism. Showing people how beautiful they are when they embrace their authentic selves is my gift to you.
