Wedding Photography Style

We are taking a photojournalistic storytelling approach, sometimes referred to as a documentary approach, photographing big and small moments that are going to happen during your wedding day. The reality is much more interesting than anything else. So down the road, 10-15 years from now, when you sit down and flip through your wedding album, you will remember the moments of your day and how you felt about them.

We believe to tell the full story, we have to be with you on the day of the wedding, from the beginning of the day all the way until the dance floor is full of dancing and laughter.

We photograph getting ready moments, first look, the marriage ceremony, family portraits, couple’s portraits, reception details and traditional moments like cake cutting, the bouquet and garter toss, your dance floor party and we also create beautiful night time portraits.

We’ll document every emotional, funny, and unique moment of your day.

Engagement Photographers

We’re also known as engagement photographers. We love to photograph engagement sessions, they are a fun and easy way to get to know you better and see how we work.

The engagement session will also help you to get relaxed in front of our cameras. As a result, the final photos will be authentic and they will show who you are and your personality.

It’s also a great way to get your photos done in some unique locations that are completely different from your wedding day venue.
