We get to know each of our couples and adore sharing their photos and stories on our blog. Grab a soft blanket and some cocoa. You might be here for a while.

Warmth, joy and love. Hello wedding couple photos.

Many are–and they look amazing every time!–but the most important thing is that your wedding reflects your life as a couple, whether you go with a low-key brunch shindig or a more extravagant affair. Sometimes, though, you really just need something fancy. Have any of you been […]

Northern Arizona has plenty of trees and great weather to escape from the Valley on occasion. Mix that with campfire-roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, amazingly starry skies, and plenty of […]

Hello, everyone! Today, I wanted to talk a little bit about associate shooting. You might have read Jo’s post about second shooters, so this is kind of a continuation of that, a little peek into what it’s like being a wedding photographer. Jo and I were the associate photographers for a colleague recently, which was […]

Being in the photography business, it’s easy for me to forget that not everyone knows what we actually do. It’s more than just choosing a location and deciding how you want your subjects to pose. Working together with your subjects is huge, especially for something like wedding photography where your entire purpose is to help […]
