Hi there! I’m Virginia.
Yes, I know that it probably seems a little confusing that my name isn’t Amy, but I promise there’s a good explanation! You can read more about the history of Amy Fillinger Photography below, but in the meantime, I’ll tell you a little about me. I have been taking photos most of my life. I’ve always had a passion for photography and started shooting professionally several years ago, mostly as a second shooter. In 2021, I became the primary photographer for Amy Fillinger Photography and have worked with hundreds of clients since.
Most days you can find me wearing comfy clothes in front of my computer, probably editing photos or emailing a client! When I am not taking photos or editing them, I enjoy spending time with my kids, playing racquetball at the gym, listening to True Crime podcasts, painting, and spending time with friends and family.
Some of my favorite things besides my kids, are coffee, kayaking, trying new activities, painting, taking trips and exploring new cities, listening to music, and sitting by the campfire in autumn weather.
While Amy Fillinger Photography is one of the biggest extended family photographers in Branson Missouri, proposals are my jam. Amy Fillinger Photography is the number one proposal photographer in Branson, and it is truly a passion of mine to capture that “I will!” There are very few moments in life that you get to witness two people so joyous and in love with each other (other than their wedding day!)
About Branson Proposal & Family Photography, formally Amy Fillinger Photography
Amy Fillinger Photography was born in 2012, founded by Amy Fillinger. Amy started in Branson, Missouri, shooting primarily weddings and extended family sessions. Amy was featured in Shutter Magazine for her wedding and portrait photography, and a few years ago started shooting proposals. Amy Fillinger Photography has easily become the most prominent proposal photographer in Branson. We love shooting proposals, so if you’re looking for a Branson proposal photographer, check out some of our previous work! We strive to make the process as smooth as possible and love to help plan proposals!
In 2018, Amy started building another business as a travel agent. Over the years, Virginia had worked with Amy second shooting or shooting video for her at weddings – as Amy’s travel business grew, Virginia came to more and more shoots until she was shooting some on her own as the primary photographer. In 2021, Virginia became the primary photographer for Amy Fillinger Photography so Amy could continue to focus on travel, and as of October 2022, Virginia is now the proud owner of Amy Fillinger Photography while Amy continues to builds her very successful travel business!
In November of 2022, Amy and Virginia decided that updating the name of the photography business would be a little less confusing for Amy’s travel clients, since she also used her name for her travel business! Since proposals and extended family photography sessions make up most of the shoots I do, we agreed that Branson Proposal & Family Photography was very fitting! Since Virginia has worked with Amy for so many years (not to mention having been good friends with Amy since 2010) almost nothing else is changing for our clients other than Virginia now taking over all client communication as well as taking all the photos.
While we are based in Branson, we also work with clients in the surrounding areas, including Springfield, Ozark, and Nixa.
