We love weddings.
IT'S ALL ABOUT AUTHENTICITY.
There is so much emotion, energy, and nerves all packed into one amazing day, and that day will literally go by in a flash. That’s why we believe photography is so important - it tells the story even better than you can remember it. When you’re both in your 80s, you'll be able to relive all the little amazing moments that together make up the story of your wedding day.
How do you get authentic photos? How do you make sure you're comfortable in front of the camera? Choosing a photographer is one of the biggest decisions you get to make. You certainly can’t repeat a wedding, so finding the right photographer for you is incredibly important. We know how hard the search can be, so we insist on chatting over coffee. That way, we can answer any questions you have in person, and see if we all jive :-) If you feel a connection with the photography, we just need to make sure our personalities also fit.

The Photo Booth
One of our favorite parts of the day, the photo booth gets everyone involved (even the grandparents!). We do it a little differently than most so we can really interact with everyone and include pretty much any number of guests into one photo. You can choose between a white backdrop or the natural backdrop of your reception space. Check out the examples of both below:
Moments in Motion
There's more to life than stills... experience your wedding in motion.
They're not just to document life before the wedding, they are also incredibly beneficial for us to get to know each other. In just a couple hours we'll go from acquaintances to close friends. That way, when we arrive the morning of your wedding, it's like seeing a good friend instead of "oh shoot, the photographer is here!". This always has a huge impact on how natural your photos are, since you'll be so much more comfortable around the camera. Don't worry, you'll still have plenty to be nervous about the morning of your wedding!

We have several investment options, starting at $3400.
Special rates for off-season or non-Saturday dates.
Since it's so important that we're the right fit, we sit down for coffee with every inquiring couple. We can get to know each other a little bit and go over all the details in person, and you can ask any questions you may have.
We only accept a very limited number of weddings per year. We absolutely love what we do, so this helps us keep it special and provide an amazing experience for our couples. This also means we tend to book up very fast every year, so please inquire as soon as possible about your date.
Where are you located? We live in Hudson, Ohio and primarily shoot in the surrounding areas (Akron, Cleveland, Medina, Youngstown).
Do you travel? You betcha! We'll just have to coordinate the logistics :-)
What’s your style? A documentary mindset with an artistic perspective. I don’t like having a heavy hand in “setting up” photos, I’d rather document what’s happening for real, from my perspective. That way you can remember and re-live the authentic moments. There are of course times for some direction, but my goal is always to be natural.
How long do photos take to edit? Your wedding with be blogged as soon as possible (usually around a week or two) with ~100 photos. You can then share the link with anyone and everyone via email or social media. All the images are edited by hand and delivered several weeks after. Portrait sessions are usually delivered around 2 weeks.These estimates vary depending on time of year and other schedule considerations.
Can I order prints or albums? Yes, please! Posting to Instagram is great, but there’s nothing like holding a physical album or having beautiful photos on your walls. I do provide a print release, but I can only guarantee the quality of any product if ordered through your online gallery.
How do I book? Click the inquiry button below to get started! We'll grab coffee (or other bevs) and once we're both comfortable with moving forward, I provide you with an agreement which will list all the details. When you return it with your deposit, you’re officially booked.
