trust is the core
How you get the best photos
genuine emotion > Stiff Poses
You care more about the one you are to marry than your makeup smudging from your tears. You care more about holding hands than holding your dress out of the grass. You want classic, creative images that tell the truth (like mom or dad crying, grandma laughing like crazy, warm hugs with your friends, amazing dance floor moments, heartfelt vows, and pure joy as you walk down the aisle as HUSBAND & WIFE!). I know this is true because I've lived it and desire it too. Timeless photos aren't about poses, but emotions.
be yourself & Be Present
We take time to know you as a couple, your unique personalties, your relationship, what you value, who you cherish, and then see your wedding day through that kaleidoscope of a lens while integrating into the group and photographing from the perspective of an empathetic close family friend. The best photos happen when you are comfortable being yourselves and live fully in the moment!
You know his day is truly bigger than just you: it's about all the people who have paved the way before you, supported you, and loved you, and it's about all those who will come after you that get the gift to reflect on this commitment you're making and be supported & loved by you. And my decade of experience has helped me see the bigger picture...the better story! Sure, you'll be in the "spotlight" but so many moments & emotions are happening all around you and we'll help you pay homage to those you love.

our approach & Your experience
we get to know you
The most meaningful photos aren't always impressive and the most impressive photos aren't always meaningful. We find out what truly matters to you so we can give you photographs that are timeless & authentic to YOU [for many years to come].
we've been in your place before
We've been where you are and on the other side: dating, engaged, wedding planning, married, and parenthood, which means we can empathize with almost everyone present.
we have the experience you need
Photographing since 2013, married since 2014, and as foster/adoptive parents, we bring a unique perspective and insight into human emotions, moments, and the impact of time on your wedding photographs.
We give you the direction you need to get beautiful photos while also giving you space to enjoy the day and the moments that unfold. Our presence will allow you to be calm, stress-free, and confident. You get the joy of being present while you trust us to document & preserve your day in a beautiful & creative way.

Add'l hour of coverage
A second photographer is great for weddings with more guests. More guests means more moments & people to be documented, so it's nice to have an extra set of eyes for those in-between, spontaneous moments. Also beneficial if you're getting ready at separate locations.
Can be added on to any option at any time before your wedding day. This can be beneficial if you start seeing that the timeline is too cramped & you want to make more space to relax, be present, and not rushing around or feeling hurried.
I highly recommend an engagement session as a deeper way for us to connect, to get you comfortable in front of the camera, and foster trust leading up to your wedding day. This is a space to slow down amidst wedding planning and reflect on the goodness of one another.
Character & SOUL
TIME IS THE BEST TELLER OF WHAT'S TRUE, IMPORTANT AND WHAT LASTS
Images are a preserver of the past. And you feel this weight a lot more when you hold them in your hands and hang them on your walls. Screens detach you from what's real, but albums and printed photos are real and tactile. Just as real as the moments and people are to you, so too should your photos be tangible & felt in your hands.
PEACE OF MIND
We guarantee the craftsmanship of your album for life! Which gives you peace of mind & confidence in passing on your heirloom.

Having us at the rehearsal dinner can be a great way to break the ice with your family & friends as they get comfortable around us. Many times, people just think we're unknown friends until we show up the next day. This really makes for some amazing moments on the wedding day as people are more relaxed.
iconic. timeless. creative. analog.
Film is in a class of its own. It smoothes out skin, it has a tactile, noticeable depth to it, colors & grain are unparalleled, and it transports you to any time in history. For in the moment or timeless portraits, this is my favorite medium & I shoot my family on it solely.

PHOTOS HAVE COMPOUND INTEREST; THEY ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE OVER TIME
I offer tips and design consults for couples looking to make gallery walls (which you know I love!), order custom framed prints, or additional ways to preserve your album to pass along for many years.
