About me

Hi! I’m LeVera! The face behind the lens and the creator of LeVera Marken Photography. I’ve been photographing in the Shenandoah Valley for well over a decade, but recently opened my dream studio to bring a more intimate-luxury approach to the area. I am a mom to 3 beautiful humans who have molded my non-traditional way of photographing. My vibe is connection focused; engaging in real life moments that will create real life images. I am thrilled to be able to work with so many wonderful families in the area and can’t wait to meet yours!
