Thea_DoddsHi, I’m Thea Dodds and I started Authentic Eye in 2004.  I have over 15 years experience as a photographer. I have a Bachelors degree in photography from Hampshire College and am currently working on my Master’s of Fine Arts in Photography at New Hampshire Institute of Art. My work has been featured in gallery shows, published in magazines including Newsweek, Rangefinder Magazine, Kearsarge Magazine, Vermont Vows, NH Magazine’s Bride and digital outlets such as ABC.com, CNN, The Huffington Post, Style Me Pretty and others, and received recognition in international photographic competitions.

I started out my photography career in photojournalism.  I had a turning point that career choice after photographing one too many house fires and car accidents.  I started photographing weddings and absolutely fell in love with it.  Who wouldn’t – I professionally attend parties!  All joking aside, I really enjoy the personal look I get into couples and families lives.  I learn and grow personally from watching people.  And the feeling of capturing an awesome photo is pretty hard to match.

Photographing weddings led to photographing families and babies, and portraits led to a variety of commercial work.  Authentic Eye has grown over the last 10 years into a full service, boutique wedding and portrait photography studio conveniently located 10 miles from Plymouth, New Hampshire and I-93.

Our goal at Authentic Eye Photography is to provide exception, personal, artistic photography.  We aim to exceed your expectations at every step of the process, from the first time you call to the final order you receive.  We thrive on customer satisfaction.

At Authentic Eye, we don’t just take pictures we make artwork.  The difference is in the quality of work and service we provide.

Enough about me, I’d love to hear from you. If you haven’t already, call the number above or send me an email. It would be my pleasure to hear more about you and see if I might be the right photographer for you.
