1998 was a year we'll never forget! We met as teenagers and spent our time sharing lunches in the drama room and attending events at our church youth group. Six years and countless beautiful memories later, we became husband and wife. Marriage has not only grown our love and friendship, but also turned us into business partners and a dynamic team. We fell in love with photography on our honeymoon and had a passion for working with couples like us, so wedding photography was the perfect fit. The best part of our job is building relationships with our couples. By really getting to know them, we're able to share their love story through pictures... and often make new friends in the process!

How are you different than other photographers?

We shoot 20 weddings each year and prefer not to shoot multiple weddings in a weekend whenever possible. We limit this number so that we can really get to know each couple we work with and make sure that every couple gets our very best. Your wedding is not just a number to us.

How are you different than other photographers?

Nope! You've got way more important things to do! We always photograph the "standards" - you getting into your dress, your Dad walking you down the aisle, your first kiss, etc. Don't hesitate to let us know about any unique details or special requests, but as a general rule, if you love our style of work, you'll love your images too. The only list we'll ask for are the names of your relatives so we know exactly who should be in your family photos.

You can download your photos and make prints anywhere you'd like. However, if you're printing larger sizes that you plan to display, we'd recommend you order from the professional print lab that is accessible through your gallery. Standard print labs like Walgreeens and Costco only calibrate their printers a few times a year, but a pro lab does this process daily to ensure the best color and highest quality results.
