Michael was born in California and I was born in New Orleans. We were both raised in Virginia. If we could move anywhere in the US, it would be Boston, MA -thanks to our love of history! We have three kids: Michael, Sophia, and Gabriel, and two pups named Auggie and Baggins.
We both are natural creatives. I operate our photography business full time and Michael is a full time educator teaching television and video production to high school students. He also just finished his Masters Degree! We spend many of our evenings taking long walks in City Center and searching through Netflix for the next series to watch (even though we know we'll never finish it!)
This is us....
With that in mind, we work to create the kinds of images that remind you of the joy and love that you share together.
We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and etched in beautiful heirloom albums. Whenever we pick up our cameras, we strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!
On your wedding day, our desire is to not just photograph the "pretty", but to be intentional about capturing the moments that happen in between. The grandmother with her hand over her heart as you put on her pearl necklace. The father moved to tears as he sees you walking towards your first look. These moments are what make a wedding gallery timeless and complete.
photograph each wedding with the belief that your images will be the only tangible thing left after your wedding day is over.

Since then, we have purchased our family home, grew our savings, and invested in our kids' interests. I love that this beautiful business of ours can be an example for our family and we appreciate every single couple who invests in us.
When we first started our business in 2016, our goal was to reduce our debts and be more financially free..
this is our why...

Growing up, I only got photographed two or three times and I don't even have those photographs. It sometimes bothers me that I don't have images of when I was younger to share with my kids.
Because of this, I carry my heart with me whenever I am photographing a wedding or a beautiful family session. Your pictures aren't just still images, they are heirlooms. They are your history books....
