Where it began

On assignment in far corners of the globe

Curious to know how we began our career in photography? How we got started &
How we give back?

Between traveling for weddings and handcrafting work for our clients in our home office in New York we enjoy spending quality time with our families. Whether it's a getaway to the Berkshires, an extended stay in Virginia (our home away from home) or in Italy, a place with so much meaning for us, our families have our heart. We enjoy cooking foods from our travels around the world and catching up with our dearest friends! A perfect day for us would be spent outdoors, exploring with our two little girls, beautifying a new part of our garden until sharing toasts around a bonfire at dusk.

Our most enjoyable places in the world to travel are Italy and France, where we continue to make incredible memories. We are grateful for a career that we love and that has afforded us the opportunity to create together as a husband and wife team. We love working with couples who share the same passion for growing together and for building loving, thriving marriages! We live a creative and fulfilling  life of purpose anchored on faith and gratitude!

FILM 

Why we now offer film photography

The craftsmanship and artistry that film photography brings to weddings, the stunning tones and timeless aesthetic of film as well as it's luxury and exclusivity is what we desire for our clients and for our work. Having developed a successful career traveling all over the world shooting documentary photography and the past eight years of the most exquisite weddings of our careers, we wanted something more for our work, something different in a sea of the same.
Where digital images are quick and beautifully effortless, film photography requires intentionality and unique artistic skill. A mastery of the camera and the instincts of the artists behind the lens is why film photography is unique, luxurious and particularly coveted on a Wedding day. In addition to crafting images in 35mm and Medium format film, we will continue to photograph digitally to provide our couples with both a sophisticated digital and film collection. Our clients deserve our most stunning creative efforts and our greatest ideas.

What sets us apart?

"Your wedding day is one of the most planned and highly curated days of your lives.
There are no do-overs!" 

insights & inspiration

In capturing a wedding with cohesive beauty and story throughout, in stylizing details and in making critical decisions for backgrounds and lighting,  a quick instinct, experience and confidence is required for the best and most successful outcomes. There are no do-overs!
With years of hard work under our belts and becoming one of the best in our field, we have all the key components to be a valuable asset that you deserve on your team.   
While we enjoy immersing ourselves into the flow of our creative spaces, we understand and appreciate that "soft skills" as well as a little dab of Type A attention-to- detail and directing really do matter. To do our best technical artistic work, we want to be exceptionally immersed in each of our couple's vision and available for them and their planning team along the way. We absolutely love what we do and love the couples and families we work with.
