feel complete around a full dinner table
are always on a treasure hunt for the best light
strive to live our lives full of wonder, excitement and joy
have received grace upon grace
believe true love never fails
Our Philosophy — we love people and we love art:
Our photos show real (rather than contrived) life. We believe that truly beautiful photos come from couples who feel like themselves and show love that is genuinely theirs.
We see a wedding as a story about a couple and their families and we strive to capture that story with depth, joy, life, motion, and emotions.
If we have to choose favorites, our favorite weddings are the deeply joy-filled ones — the ones where the couples and their families are really in the moment — there are happy tears, belly laughs, longer-than-average hugs, and a deep sense of gratitude.
Other than creating images that are honest, artistic, and filled with beauty, our biggest goal while using our cameras is to form real friendships. We always feel the best and most timeless images we have ever made are of people we can call friends.
