Wedding Photography


Explore our style

Our style would be best described as journalistic with an artistic flair.  Our speciality is creating and capturing moments for you to cherish for a lifetime. Seamlessly going from an emotional bridal suite, to carrying that emotion over to portraits with the bride and groom, and getting shots of a crazy reception dance party that actually feel like you are there are what we specialize in. 

Here are some of our favorite shots and some of the stories behind them. 

"The Kiss" I remember this moment so vividly. It was halfway through the reception, the band was bangin'.  Everyone was on the dance floor having a great time. Then the bride and groom sneak off the floor for a moment for them selves.  They were in their own world, on their wedding day, on cloud nine. What is so great about this image is that it was completely spontaneous and not set up in the least.  I saw them head over to their table all alone and watched as the magic unfolded.  Bringing moments like these back to life is what being a wedding photographer is all about.

"Ceremony" This wedding took place at a family ranch house. I love this image so much because it is from a completely different perspective. This location was very important to them so I really wanted to incorporate as much as I could about the location into the pictures as I could. Shooting through the door during the ceremony, everything came out perfectly.

"Cheers" The reception, before everyone arrives.  While capturing details of the venue I glance over and see these two about to have their very own private tea party.  At the perfect moment when they cheers their cups, this frame is captured. Can you imagine having this image of you and your grandpa? This image is so much more than a picture of a tea party... this captures the side of grandpa that not everyone gets to see, the vulnerable side, the most beautiful side. This is something that can not be replicated or duplicated the same way. It is timeless. It is priceless.

"All Eyes On You" Step back and look... The whole bridal party is in awe of the splendor of the bride.  What more can I say, this image captured it all.

"Remember" Getting amazing wedding day portraits of the bride and groom is such an important part. Our portrait style is more about creating a space for your most beautiful side to come out. It is less about posing and worrying about the camera (that is our job), it is more about having an experience and us capturing the overflow.

"Lead Singers" This reception was rockin!!!!  The band was soooo good and they had people on the dance floor all night.  This was the highlight of the night. The bride and groom decided to jump on the stage, grab the mics, and be the rockstars that they are. Confetti everywhere, jaming music, and a crazy crowd... what more could you ask for?

"Away" The portrait part of the wedding can be a beautiful time.  Creating a space for the bride and groom to have some time enjoying themselves and get away from all the noise is what we strive to create. This space makes moments possible, and those beautiful moments is what makes powerful photography possible.

"The Guest" Some of my favorite wedding photos are from the perspective of a guest. This photo makes me feel like I am just watching these events unfold. I love that you can see the bride getting her hair done and all the bridesmaids busily getting ready.  And having the dress in the shot is just the icing on the top for a story telling image.

F.A.Q.s

- How do we book you?

To book us, we first require a meeting in person. If in person is not possible, we require a phone call or Skype with both the bride and groom. We want to make sure we both are a good fit for each other. After that, we’ll require a $500 retainer (that does go towards your package) and a signed contract by the bride and groom. Once all that is competed, your date will be marked off!

- How far in advance should we hire you?

ASAP. Now, that is not to say we won’t be available last minute. But the sooner you know and book us, the sooner we can mark your date off the calendar. There’s always a few hot dates every year where we get tons of inquiries for. So the sooner the better!

- Do you use second shooters or assistants?

Absolutely not. Your photographs are custom made by my hands only. I would not trust photography to a "hired gun" second shooter and neither should you.

- When can I place my order?

You will do all of the ordering at your premiere. The premiere consists of a cinematic presentation of your photographs along with a design consultation to finalize your album and wall art orders.

- Why have an engagement session?

Of course we will never force anyone, but we think engagement sessions are a MUST for a couple reason. First, it’s a great way for you to see what we do and how we work before the wedding. It gets you a little more comfortable with us and the camera. Secondly, our engagement sessions are very different than most other photography sessions. We have adopted a new style of photography called Beloved. This style is more about you having an experience with each other. We loosely pose you and give you an opportunity to genuinely laugh, smile together. We want you to be so wrapped up in what you guys are doing and experiencing, that you forget we are they’re taking pictures. It’s a fun time for all of us and a great reflection of who you are as a couple . The photos won’t just show what you look like, but will show who you truly are! We fell love in love with this style of photography because of the authenticity and realness that is created. And we get to know you guys a little more!

- How much time should we set aside for pictures with just the bride and groom?

On the wedding day, we think it’s VERY important to set aside time with just the bride and groom. SO many times it’s forgotten in the craziness of the day or planning. We’ll take anytime we can get, but 20-30 minutes is a great amount of time to spend some time with just you two on your wedding day away from everyone else.

- What is your opinion on a first look?

Keep in mind this is only our OPINON. If you hire us, we’ll do whatever you want us to do! But for the question of a first look or not, we’d recommend one! There’s a couple reasons: 1.) It relieves the stress and tension of walking down the aisle. Many brides that have chosen to do a first look have told us they were nervous about the wedding before hand. Once they had their first look and had some time with their soon to be spouse, the nerves were calmed and they were excited to get on with everything. 2.) With a first look, you have time to talk to each other. As photographers, we’ll find a quiet place, snap some photos when you first see each other, then give you two some time to yourselves. You can actually have time to tell each other about your day and how you feel. 3.) The more pictures we can take before the ceremony, the less stressful it is after the ceremony. Guests don’t want to wait forever while the bride and groom are taking group pictures. We try to go as fast as we can, but the more we get done prior, the less we have to do after!

- How many photos will I get?

That all depends on a few different variables.  We spend months getting to know you and to find out what is special about your wedding.  We will be taking tons of pictures on the day.  Part of our service to you is to narrow that amount down to around 400 pictures.  Even that is WAY more than anyone needs to look through. But bottom line, we want to give you the photos that best tell the story of your day!

- Do you take group/formal pictures at weddings? and do we give you a list of the ones we want?

Yes we take groups and formal portraits. As you might have noticed,we don’t share those on our website. We know those pictures are important to you, so of course, we’ll do what we need to get them. However, its not where we set our priorities. We take them, but it’s not why people hire us. Be sure to schedule plenty of time for groups and formal pictures. We encourage setting aside 4 minutes per family group to give you and idea of time.

- How involved are we in the album making process?

As much or as little as you want. At the premiere we will begin by showing you an album pre-design.  The pre-design is how we would make your album if we had complete creative control.  It would be how we would tell the story of your day if it was up to us.  Most people think it is a great starting point.  From there, you can order the album as is, or make as many changes as you want.   Bottom line, it’s your album.  You will live with it the rest of your lives!!!  So we want you to LOVE it!

- Do you travel?

YES! Have camera, will travel!! We LOVE to go to new places!
