One of the funniest things I have heard a bride say on her wedding day.

June 06, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Something that happens when we photograph a wedding.

June 03, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Lauren and I have been a team for a long time. We work well together and usually know where the other is so we're not in each other photos. Occasionally, we catch the other in the background, inadvertently. This was one of those times. I was on one side of the door and Lauren on the other. She peeked around to see if I was done or about the change...

I love an educated bride and groom.

May 16, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
What I mean is educated photographically. That they have some knowledge of photography. These couples often book us because they can see the difference from our work to other photographers. The look and feel of our images is what catches their eye. Often, we're told that they like our work, however, really cannot put a finger on exactly why our im...
