We believe in real 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. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
We believe we were given a unique opportunity to capture all of these incredible moments. Whenever we pick up our cameras, we strive to create genuine and joyful images, full of life, that tell a story and showcase the beauty of the people in the images and the world around them.
It's about more than hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few photos. Wedding photography is about carefully crafting and capturing the moments of your wedding day and telling your love story, just as it happened.
Your wedding photographers should feel like friends when they walk into that bridal suite. Even with it's ups and downs, your life, and your story are beautiful and we can't wait to be there every step of the way!
We are parents to 3 incredible kids who are our everyday inspiration.
We have been married for 5 years & on one of the most popular wedding dates of the year!
Adventure is out there & we love discovering & photographing new destinations.
A few Dream destinations:
The Amalfi Coast
Hosting dinner parties are our jam!
Fun fact, Stephen is also a chef! We love trying new restaurants but nothing beats his secret chicken enchiladas!
There is nothing like an Arizona sunset and we have some of the most incredible light here. Our favorite time of day is about 2 hours before sunset when the light is just magic.
Our story may not be worthy of great American literature, but it's ours and we believe every love story is worth telling. We met 7 years ago in your typical boy-meets-girl fashion. Our first date consisted of the batting cages and a giant sized game of Jenga! What really hooked Melissa though... was the first time Stephen made her his famous chicken enchiladas (HOLY GUACAMOLE!)
When we got married, it was a small intimate wedding with our absolute favorite people and it was perfect. We went antique hunting, argued over invitation inserts, and even created a step-by-step instruction manual complete with photo references of what each table would look like! Stephen is the planner and LOVES a good timeline! ;) We poured our hearts into every last detail and our family and friends helped turn our dream into a reality!
At the end of the day, and after months or YEARS of planning, it's the photographs that can transport you back instantly to that incredible day. It does for us! We love being part of the beginning of your story and telling it in a way that brings out the most beautiful side of you!
