The Promise to our couples is this...

We tell joyful, romantic & refined stories with photos + video that will be shared for generations

The                   behind our work


… how your sweet Dad carries around childhood photos of you all day in his jacket pocket

It will be all about the way your story was told,
that will transport you back to those unforgettable memories.

Our couples leave an imprint on our hearts.

… the way the two of you lean your heads together during toasts, and sneak quick 'I love you' glances

Your wedding story becomes part of your family’s legacy...


In 30 years,

We believe in genuine moments and chasing the sunset. In the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together -

We have a passion for helping our couples slow down, breath and savor their day while telling your story in the most authentic way...

After years of photographing beautiful wedding days, we have come to believe that videography is equally as important as photography. That combined, they should tell the story of your day in a beautifully crafted & cohesive style.

We are a team in both life and on a wedding day and understand what it's like being married to their best friend - We work side by side using both formats to tell joyful, classic and romantic wedding stories that will stand the test of time.

We have been given this incredible opportunity to capture some of life's most celebrated moments and we do not take that for granted...

... or the way your family embraces one another as they watch you dance with your Grandpa, who 'almost didn't make it to the wedding

... the final hug your best friend gave you before leaving the dressing room to help settle the butterflies in your stomach

You'll never forget -

They are looking to not only hire photographers, but want a personal connection along with a joyful and genuine experience...They want it to feel like friends behind the camera, not just a vendor. 

Sound like you? Let's keep going....

"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!"
