nostalgic. vintage. moody. intimate.

raw. romantic. warm. filmy.

authentic.


we are a husband and wife team.together we've
combined the elements of analog and digital and created our own style,
our own mood,
our own aesthetic.
we don't just take photos.
we create art.
we create
tangible memories.

 

the process:

 

I. Book the date.

 

Send me a quick email via the contact form and let's make sure we have your date available! we will chat about your vibes, aesthetic, and what your vision is for your day. we send over
a proposal for you to review which includes your contract and invoice. contract signed, retainer paid, and you're officially booked!

II. engagement session

 

this is where we usually meet in person for the first time. we get to talk, laugh, and be goofy. i strive to make sure this is a very relaxed shoot. it's for fun and you just happen to get some dope ass photos out of it. win/win, right? these aren't required, but we love doing them just so we have the chance to really get to know each other before the wedding day!

III. pre-wedding consult

 

3o days prior to your wedding date, the remainder of your balance is due. anywhere from two to three weeks before the day, we'll grab a coffee or hop on a call to go over all the final details. arrival+departure time, the flow of the day, etc. i will type out a "photo" timeline to help keep us on track. if you're using a planner, we will coordinate our timeline to that it meshes seamlessly.

Iv. wedding day!

 

you get married. we take photos. easy peasy!

v. the waiting

 

this is the worst part. i know it sucks. i always do my best to get you a few photos within a week or so of your wedding. most galleries are turned around in 12 weeks. depending on the time of the year, it can be longer or shorter. all of this is covered in your contract. just know that i hand edit every single image that i deliver to you. i wany your images to be art. to mean something. and that takes time. you won't regret the wait.

Not your average

family photos.


We love photographing families, maternity, and couples too. we take the same artistic approach that we use in our weddings. we want to capture your family just as you are. we're parents too and we know all too well how family photos "usually" go. no forced smiles here. we welcome the chaos! roll in the dirt, throw rocks in the lake, dance, laugh, sing, twirl, cry. we're here for the real stuff.

the days are long, but the years are short.
