a note to you...

We are so thrilled for you as you enter this next chapter in your story and are extremely honored to be considered to photograph these special moments. 

Over the last almost 9 years we have traveled across the world for couples; chasing light and romance. Joyful emotion, silly laughs and those sweet snuggles are what inspire us to create beautifully timeless imagery that you will cherish forever. 

Matt and I don't take ourselves too seriously (we're pretty quirky) and we don't expect you to either.  Our goal is to help you feel relaxed and exactly yourselves in front of our cameras.  We have found that the best experience for our couples can happen when we build a connection with each other. When we connect, that foundation and trust can allow for the most real emotion and intimate moments.   

Our couples aren't models. They're real genuine people who typically feel uncomfortable being photographed. But that's where you can trust us. We'll guide you every step of the way to create those fun and romantic images that reflect who you are as a couple.  As your wedding photographers, you can trust us to lead you through your sessions as well as partner with your planner to help your day run smoothly and create timeless images that document your vision perfectly. 

Your photographs are ones that you're going to share with your grandchildren one day. You'll flip through you album and reflect back on your  history and the family your love built. We want to create lovely and tangible imagery that you can hold, feel and remember every last detail of the day you said "I do".

To our lovely brides and grooms, you are why we love what we do. You are the stories we get to tell. You are leaving a legacy for future generations and we can't wait to help document it.

Engagement sessions are a special season that we love documenting. This session is not only about celebrating your engagement it's also about building trust! We want to spend this time with you to get to know you both as a couple and how you interact! Believe me, being photographed can feel awkward but that's what we're here for! When trust with us is built, that will allow for the most genuine moments and emotion! Plus your wedding day photos will be a breeze!

Can we skip the engagement session?

I always love to suggest neutrals for the light and airy look. For her a flowy dress which is  always my go to! They're flattering, comfortable and give lots of movement to your images. For him, I suggest dressing up in coordinating neutrals  but not too matchy.

I will share with you a link to my Pinterest board along with other suggestions to help you pick the perfect outfits! 

what should i wear to my session?

<

f.a.q.

Absolutely, YES! We believe that your images shouldn't just live on your computer or smart device but be on your walls and in an heirloom album. That album is one you'll look through often and remember the happiest day even in your hardest moments. It's a carefully curated story book of a day where you promised forever to each other and celebrated with your closest family and friends. 

We want choosing an album and printing your images to be easy. We offer a variety of options to take the stress away!

Do you offer albums and prints?

f.a.q.

I think planners are a must for having a stress free day! They are there with you through out the planning process and wedding day to make sure everything runs smoothly and you don't have to worry about a thing! Why add more to your plate!

I have a list of amazing planners who I've worked with and recommend!

Should I hire a planner?

f.a.q.

You'll need to nail down your wedding date and venue first and once you have that we'd love to hear from you! On average, we book about a year in advance and prime dates usually go fast! 
We only accept 10 wedding commissions a year, so the sooner you reach out and schedule a consultation the better!
