It's important to us to give you a personal experience. The first thing you’ll get is a Planning Guide, filled with all the knowledge We’ve gained from 6 years of Wedding Photography. We're here to help you plan and alleviate stress. About a month before your wedding day, we will take you both on a dinner date to iron out timeline details and decompress. It will make you feel so confident about your wedding and it really solidifies our friendship!

A personal experience

The best part about having a photography team is both of you get a dedicated photographer. There is no running back and forth between rooms, and no missed moments with your bridal party! I’ll be the one cheering you on and encouraging the bridal party to jump on the bed. And Ernest will take his signature photo of clinking shot glasses. Plus we've been through this process dozens of times and we know how stressful it can be. Our biggest goal is to support you and help you enjoy the hell out of your day.

2 Photographers

When it comes to couple portraits, you deserve a photo experience that is fun and reminds you of exactly what you love about each other. I create and capture moments for you by asking you to interact together. But don't worry I don't expect you to be naturals. I direct you with prompts that are emotion-provoking, playful and make it easy for you to open up and share genuine laughter, and heartfelt moments with each other. 

Approach

We've combined our passions for photography and magic to give you an experience that's all about joy and laughter. You can add Close Up Magic to your Cocktail Hour and Reception. Ernest will walk around from group to group and table to table with cards and a variety of everyday objects to make magic happen in your hands. Close Up Magic will leave a lasting impression and give everyone a personal experience that your guests will talk about long after!

You have to love our work and our personalities

Wedding photography seems like easy money — work for one day and rake in the cash, right? But when you include all of the emails, phone calls, engagement sessions, timeline meetings, social media, photo editing and album creation, we usually spend an average of 65 hours of work on every wedding. We care about giving couples the best possible photos, which can take 2-3 hours to edit every 1 hour of wedding day coverage. Photography is how we pay our bills, support our family and fund our adventures.

why is photography so expensive?

These photos were taken about 20 minutes after sunset. The first image was shot on Auto Mode, the second photo was shot on Manual Mode and the third was edited from the Manual Mode photo. As you can see, the camera performs excellent in low light when the photographer has the knowledge to set the best manual settings for the lighting situation. When you hire us, you’re getting 6 years of photography and wedding experience. We're able to capture every last detail, guest and moment because we shoot with intention, we know when certain events are happening and we watch and wait for those moments to unfold naturally. We like to think we have a spidey-sense for anticipating candid emotional and joyful moments. We are invested in you, your love and your day.

We're more than a fancy camera
