We are a couple of modern thinking artists who photograph fun and good people at one of the greatest times of their lives. We are non-traditional photographers and specialize in forming lasting relationships with our couples and making our job about creating the ultimate photography experience. This endeavor has brought us globally, and we have a fondness for travel and shooting weddings internationally.
We are proudly members of Professional Photographers of America, and have been published in magazines and wedding blogs in Australia, France, the UK, and the US.
You can find our work in Weddings Illustrated, Green Wedding Shoes, Ruffled, Wedding Chicks, Style Me Pretty, La mariée aux pieds nus, Martha Stewart Weddings, Every Last Detail, and many more. This has facilitated us in meeting couples from all over the world and enabled us to travel for documenting love, which for us, is the meaning of life.
We bring a fresh, positive vibe with us to every wedding, making everyone feel at ease, which allows for incredibly natural and beautiful moments to happen! We are natural light photographers with an eclectic mix of styles. Our images are fine art and storytelling, while being soft, detailed, and packed full of emotion.

David just wanted to make sure that all of his friends and family had fun. He actually said that he didn’t want it to be a “bummer”.
No worries, David, it was not even close.
All of the sentimental details, all of the vibrant colors and handmade paper flowers, the good drinks and food and a sweets table to die for. How could you go wrong?
Most importantly, they had Love. And Fun.
That’s what we love in our couples and that’s what we look for when we read all of the stories that couples share with us. Because anyone can shoot details and tablescapes. But to be a part of an amazing experience, one that is different every single time we shoot and to be around people that are real and in love and happy and having fun and get what we do, that is sweet and pure joy right there.
We are SO excited for the wedding of Anh & Scott tomorrow at The Vault venue in Tampa! This engagement session shows that it’s never too late to get in that engagement session with us before the big day! We just had this gorgeous session with them on MondayThe memories of working together will be fresh in our minds and the excitement fresh in our hearts!
The Ringling Museum is one of our favorite Florida locations! Be sure to see it for yourself in person, it’s just magical!!

Our favorite parts of this wedding? Has to be the incredible First Look shared by Whitney and Matt, when they both did the “Dougie” during their cake cutting, and the GLOW TAMBOURINES, yes you heard right. GLOW TAMBOURINES.. Oh and all the sparkly fashion and the most outrageous wedding party entrances, EVER. Enjoy!!
We were so happy to collaborate with some of our favorite creatives to bring together this fabulous shoot. While in the process of re-branding, we wanted to find elements that shouts this is US!, with modern geometrics while keeping with our boho and eclectic aesthetic. These rad geometric hearts, created by artist Andrea Everman, were the perfect find for us! We combined them with hearts created by the super talented and dear friend, Renee Rodgers, from Renee Nicole Design, for a fun, eclectic mix. This heart is now sitting pretty up top as our new logo. Fresh and fun, and a little funky, that’s us.
