Our Style

We use a combination of digital and film photography to create a style that is fine art, creative, contemporary, and fun. We find that it tends to be very photojournalistic and documentary, telling the story as it unfolds; however, we love the beautiful, casually posed images of the bride and groom together too.

We make sure to schedule some time during the day to create those images of you without your wedding party or guests looking on. We also love preserving all of the details of the wedding, which sometimes get missed like your cake, your shoes, the beautiful centerpieces etc.

We tend to photograph your guests in the moment, {laughing, smiling, dancing, drinking, and having a great time} and not posing together at the tables. Other than the family groupings we tend to lean away from posed photographs.

It is very helpful to know what important relatives and friends are attending, and if any events have special significance, but repeated requests for posed images and working “from a checklist” is counterproductive to our work. “Shot lists” provided by many major bridal magazines are a great idea, but please understand that we will generally capture those images without prompting.

We love taking your wedding photos! It is truly something we love and it comes from deep down. Our joy comes from working with couples who see beauty in the moments, they know that the emotions make up a wedding day. We accept a limited number of wedding commissions every year so that we can always be energetic, fun, easy-going and completely focused on capturing your wedding.
