let's get real:
Because this is not about perfectly pretty photos; it's about capturing the real you and your most special memories - the belly laughs, the soft kisses, the windblown hair, the joyful tears, the squinty eye smiles, the quiet moments in between.
We know what a momentous thing it is to find a photographer you trust to represent your love and capture one of your biggest moments. And trust us, it's not something we take lightly.
We consider ourselves artistic storytellers. No stiff poses or forced smiles. We aren’t going to have you simply stare at the camera while we click away, nor are we going to precisely pose you like you are on the cover of a magazine. We are here to capture the real, raw, unfiltered moments.
We want you to feel completely comfortable with us - like you’ve known us for years! So we make sure we get to know each other well before we ever pull out our camera. It’s important to us that we create a space where you feel confident being yourself. The only thing we ask is that you come as you are and toss all expectations out the window!
we know you're questioning it:
When you look back on the photos, we want you to feel exactly how you did in that moment. We want you to remember the butterflies you felt seeing your partner the first time that day, the spark in their eyes as you committed your life to one another, and the tangible love that filled the air. In order to do this, we have learned to create a space where you can simply and genuinely connect with your loved ones and have crafted our experience to focus on you - not the camera. Through this, we are able to capture beautifully real images.
We promise - you won't. Our experience is so focused on the connection you already have with one another that you'll forget the camera is even there.
Wedding day timelines, decor brainstorming, vendor recommendations, unique ideas
Elopement planning in its entirety! Location, activities, how to include loved ones, etc.

Anything and everything else - we never limit the amount of contact you have with us
we're here for you
Colby & Valerie were the absolute best to hang out with. I say “hang out with” instead of “work with” because they made the whole session feel so easy & fun. Our engagements turned out better than we could have asked for. The whole session was so authentic and comfortable. We can’t wait to have them capture more amazing moments in our future again!

We consider ourselves “adventure” wedding, elopement, and couples photographers, but what we really mean by that is “experience-based”. We’d love to go hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling, off-roading, sailing, or chasing waterfalls with you (just don’t tell TLC). But we’d also love to travel with you, make cookies in your kitchen, picnic in the field where you had your first date, or build a bonfire and roast s'mores. You don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to adventure together.
