HEY, YOU.

Maybe you heard about us from a friend, or maybe you just discovered our work.
But right now, you're trying to decide if you want us to be your wedding photographers.

 

We haven't met you yet, but here's some advice: please do not take this decision lightly. Your photographers will be with you during the most intimate and emotional moments of your wedding day. No one, not even your fiance or your best friend or your mom, will spend more time by your side! Stress can run high and the last thing you need is someone standing next to you who you don't fully trust. 

So let's get to know each other first! We'll meet for coffee and talk about how you met, what you love about each other, and what your dream wedding looks like. We'll envision the art that you want to hang on your walls and the wedding album that you'll revisit over and over through the decades. And most importantly, let's see if our values, our creative vision, and our services line up with what you're looking for.

 

We're married. You're about to get married. Kinda sounds like the perfect match, right?

This is how to get the wedding photos you dreamed of.

Step 1: Start with a photography collection that's tailored for you.

We include exactly what you need and nothing you don't want, with a no-hassle investment plan, new automatic payments, and a professional contract for your total peace of mind.

Step 2: Plan your wedding and be crazy in love with each other.

We'll provide our experienced input in your wedding plans, help develop your day-of timeline, and begin telling your love story with a fun and romantic engagement session!

Step 3: Leave the work to us on your wedding day.

Now that you're comfortable in front of our cameras and have a great timeline, you're free to enter into the peace and joy that God has intended for you at your wedding. That's going to make truly great photos.

Step 4: Use your amazing photos to begin building your legacy.

Great photos shouldn't be trapped in digital form. Technology changes fast and you need to choose a format that lasts longer than CDs (remember those?). Order professional prints and albums directly from your gallery, shipped to your door.

This is why we shoot


We don't love wedding photography. We love your marriage.

We shoot to capture the radiant joy that's overflowing from you and the people who surround you.

These treasured memories are something you will come back to over and over again for the rest of your lives. We look for authentic moments and quickly find the best light and composition to create a photograph that's as beautiful as it is truthful.

We shoot to capture the devotion that once inspired you to promise everlasting fidelity to each other.

Marriage isn't always easy and in those difficult times, your wedding photos are a memorial to what once was and the roadmap to come back home. We help you re-focus on each other and capture raw emotion in unexpected moments that speaks to your incredible love.

We shoot for your children's sake, in a world filled with broken homes and broken expectations of love.

Your kids and grandkids need to see what real covenant love looks like. That legacy matters more than anything else you can pass down. We create timeless photos that will be as beautiful in 50 years as they are right now.

 

You can learn a lot about someone by the people they spend time with. These are our people.

Who you are


The couples we work with are scattered around the world, but you all share these values.

You're intentional - about your time, finances, relationships. Where you invest your heart, you invest your life.

Your life is anchored by a family who inspires you and a tribe who empowers you.

Your day starts with coffee and definitely sometimes ends with a glass of wine.

Your faith thrives in the Judeo-Christian heritage, acting to bring the Kingdom of Heaven down to earth.

You love travelling the world, exploring new cities, and learning how to cook new foods together.

You're adventurous, a little bit fearless,  and just the right blend of spontaneous and wise.

 

If these values describe you, then we're probably going to be BFFs.
