Wedding Experience


We believe in genuine moments and chasing the sunset. In the kind of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together - The final hug your best friend gives you before leaving the dressing room and how your normally reserved Dad… cries during the first dance. The way the two of you lean your heads together during toasts, and sneak 'I love you' glances all night -

Your wedding day will fly by, and we have a passion for helping our couples slow down, breath and savor their day. We are given the incredible opportunity to capture one of life's most celebrated moments and we strive to create joyful, genuine and classic photos that tell your story and never let you forget those feelings -

In 50 years, it will be all about those photos of the memories you made celebrating the start of this new journey together -

Love Notes

From our Couples

We couldn’t say enough great things about Stephen & Melissa! From having a blast with them on our engagement photo session to celebrating with them at our wedding, it definitely felt like they were our close friends, instead of photographers we hired.
Planning a wedding during a Pandemic was challenging to say the least, but they gave us tons of advice and ideas to make it easier. They even presented us with our fairy tale venue when we had to forgo our original plans. We honestly don’t know what we would have done without them!
Most importantly their pictures are amazing! They are so experienced in what they do and know how to get all the best shots, while making it fun along the way. We are constantly getting compliments on all our photos and we are so glad we went with them! They went above and beyond on everything and we can’t wait use them again for all future photos!

Words don’t do Stephen and Melissa justice. They are SO kind and SO talented and just any positive word you can think of as people and photographers. What a gorgeous couple who takes gorgeous pictures! We will be booking them for all future photos. They are what honestly helped make our wedding so amazing, and they are some of the funnest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. ❤️

- Kat & Stephen

"Stephen and Melissa were one of the best choices I made in my wedding planning process. As an event planner, my number one goal was to have a well-managed event that ran smoothly, followed by being able to spend time with my husband, and thirdly, having beautiful photos to document the designs. Stephen and Melissa made all of that happen.

I trusted them completely and was able to relax on my special day, knowing that their down-to-earth personalities and excellent artistic talent would carry us through the day smoothly. They were quick to respond to messages, relaxing to be around, made us feel like models, shared my artistic vision, accommodated my extremely detailed schedule, and became our friends who we already recommended to another couple a month after our own wedding.

I cannot recommend them highly enough, and I spread their name to whoever will listen. Hire them. You will not regret it. It may be the best decision you make for your wedding.

Kelsey & Chris

"These people.
The magically wonderful couple who captured every
moment of my wedding day! They were there for us when we were at our most stressful point of the wedding planning, helped me plan the day out so it would run smoothly, and through it we gained two wonderful friends. I’m forever grateful as the photos serve an even better memory than the day of, in a lot of ways. I can feel every emotion each time I look through the photographs they took. I can never thank them enough, but what I can do is give them the highest of recommendations for anyone in need of a photographer. You’ll never love being in front of the camera more.
I promise... #hannahwasbrenttobe"

- Hannah & Brent

Throughout the entire planning process you two have been by our side to answer any questions, give us advice and calm us down through all the stressful moments of planning a wedding. You both went above and beyond what we expected and we can't thank you enough for being there for us. We both truly felt like we had friends by our side to help us the entire way. You're both wonderful people and you made our day even more special by being there to share it with us.

Kristina & Frank

Wow! I don't have the words to describe how amazing Stephen and Melissa are! From the very first email correspondence, it has been a pleasure working with them. They have answered every email, and been so organized, which allowed me to breathe easy. Every phone call has been easy and helpful and working with them the day of was a dream. They actually made everything better with their happy, friendly, flexible, and calming personalities. Melissa felt like one of my bridesmaids and Stephen felt like one of the groomsmen. They were a delight from start to finish, and they are the type of people you want to have over for dinner and add to your groups of friends! Also, I received a link to a very well done, organized website with a sneak peak of 100 photos five days after the wedding! The pictures are beautiful - stylish, artistic, romantic - perfect. I can't recommend them more highly!

-Katherine & Nick

"....they made my Wildest Pinterest dreams 
come true!"

- Sammie & Kyle

"We cannot even begin to express how much it means to us to have such beautiful pictures. We know that we will enjoy seeing them for years and years to come! The light, the colors, the people we love... absolutely everything was captured perfectly! I know that I never imagined having such amazing photos! You guys truly went above and beyond..."

- Alexis & Colt

"Stephen and Melissa did a beautiful job for our wedding!!! They are both very nice, easy to work with and absolutely professional. They helped us get the best of the best for the time we had and came with a plan for our day to do so. It was definitely the highlight of our wedding, the pictures are natural, with perfect lighting and you can tell that everybody is relaxed and having a great time working with them!!! They are very good at reading couples and delivering exactly the product that you want. I recommend them 100% -
 ... The overall experience was top-notch from start to finish (even if it was such a short period of time, which only further tells how talented and professional you both are!). We are so thankful to have worked with you for our wedding, and fall in love with our pictures more and more each day!"
