Tips for Planning Your Wedding

This is more like a photographer's wish list. It's a list of things you can do to ensure that you get the best images possible. And a few side tips too!

A Variety Pack

Black and White, Color, or a vintage feel. We love to give you lots of options when we edit each photo.

All The Details

Every little detail, every side story...we capture it all. We shoot all of our weddings as though it was our own.

All the Emotions

I love those moments where everyone lets there walls down and they just allow themselves to fall into that exact moment. It's the emotional part of the story.

Images by the Thousands

We get asked all the time...How many pictures do you take? The answer...on average we take 2000-5000 images

Husband and Wife Team

We first fell in love with photography. Then many years later we fell in love with each other. We combined our passions and found a way to spend more time together. An innovative photography company prevailed.

Ashley + Jake...Love Under the Sunset

Posted by Amy Kirkpatrick On Friday, July 22, 2011 1 comments
What makes a great wedding? For us, it may be different than what most might say. But, the things that seem to be true in all weddings is this...
- Close family and friends.
- Intimate setting. Friends are laughing, having fun and goofing off.
- A gorgeous ceremony that fits the couple completely.
- Friends who want to celebrate just as much as you do.
and...a wonderful couple who loves each other.

Ashley + Jake had one of those weddings. They exchanged vows in the most intimate way. Among 20 of their closest friends and family they stood holding hands on the deck overlooking the ocean. The warm wind was blowing and the sun was pouring down in happy approval. For the rest of the evening Ashley + Jake danced in the living room, sat under the sunset talking with friends and just spending time with the people they loved most. The traditions of bouquet toss, cake cutting and first dances were made simple and allowed Ashley + Jake to be themselves. Natural, excited and just full of love.
In such a small group we stepped into their intimate day as a photographer and left feeling like family. We felt so blessed to witness such a unique and special wedding for two amazing people.
Ashley + Jake...if you are reading this...I LOVED YOUR WEDDING!!! Thank you for treating us so well!

The ceremony was so special. Ashley's mom was so excited to take her down the aisle and it showed all over her face.

Leah is so gorgeous! I can't tell you how blessed we are to have the opportunity to capture her...in paint. For the longest time I have wanted to do a painted trash the dress session and it finally happened. Here is a sneak peek of the big day!
