Our Philosophy

For us, this is more than just a paycheck. We love getting to know our clients and collaborating to make something beautiful and real. For us, photography isn’t a side hustle or something we just fell into doing, it’s something we’ve worked hard for and been passionate about for nearly a decade. It’s about documenting a beautiful moment in people’s lives in a way that is honest and unfolds naturally the way we would want our own wedding to be photographed. We think real moments are better than staged ones and we think that natural light is best.

Connection

We don’t just want to be vendors, we want to be your friends.

After doing this full time for nearly a decade, we can confirm that personal connection is the most important thing to have with a photographer. If you’re shopping for the best deal we’re probably not your photographers but if you feel a connection with our work then we don’t want to just be another vendor, we want to be your friends. Whether it’s a short meeting at a coffee shop or just though Skype, we want to get to know you.

What we care about

photography = anthropology

We love being creative and making artsy photos but the main thing is to photograph your wedding the way we would want our own to be photographed. Creating photos that look good on your wall is a big part of what we do, but capturing the energy and emotion that come with having some of the most important people in your life all together in one place is way more important.

What we don’t care about

We’re not our equipment

We don’t care much for merely being a camera operator. We love camera gear and having the newest stuff but if all you want are high res photos of your wedding for cheap, that’s not us. We want to make photos that you feel, not just see. We also want you to love your photos from years to come. We also, don’t care much for obligatory tradition. Weddings are fairly traditional in nature but it doesn’t mean that you should be at the mercy of what other people think you should do on your wedding and we don’t want to tell you what to do either. We are here to help you in the planning process and to document your wedding in a way that represents you and not be boxed in by outdated expectations of what wedding photography should be. We want to make something new and real, not just complete a checklist of obligatory shots that someone else thinks you need.

Why we do this

We love doing this

We do this because we love doing this. It has been a passion of mine for nearly a decade now(Nick) and I hope to do this for at least a decade more. Even before I was married myself, I loved photographing weddings and now that I am married, I feel even more of a connection to the weddings we photograph. Even though, I don’t know if your wedding day is the end all most important day in your life, I’m sure it’s an important one. What I do know is that life can be hectic and stressful and moves along faster than we can keep up with and at the end of the day these are the moments that matter to us the most and we don’t take that responsibility lightly.

NATURAL LIGHT

We love natural light!

Whether it is outdoors or an indoor location with windows, natural light makes for beautiful photos. If you venue doesn’t have a ton of natural light, we’re ready to jump in and make it happen anyways. However, we are more than happy to help you in the planning process to make sure you have the best light available on you wedding day.

How We Shoot

The last thing we want is for you to have cheesy photos.

We want photos that represent you as a couple and this time in your life. We have our “poses” but they’re only meant as a starting point. Most people feel awkward in front of a camera so our shoots are laid back and we make sure you are as comfortable as possible so you can be yourselves and we get photos that have something special.

Black + White

We love black and white photos

We love our color photos but there is something timeless about b+w photos that bring a photo down to its essence. It’s more than just stripping color from a photo, it’s letting the energy of the photo shine through creating photos that age well with time.
