What Makes Us Different

Our documentary approach is guided by these three premises


Your Wedding Is Unique

The story of your wedding day from beginning to end is defined by you, your relationships, your personalities, the history of your lives leading up to this day, the locations of where you get ready, get married and celebrate. We only want to capture your story, not recreate photos from previous weddings or other photographers.


We Embrace Spontaneity

The story of your wedding doesn’t stop between the big moments: the kiss on the altar, cutting the cake or your first dance. That’s why we never switch off. We’ll be there all day, constantly looking to find interesting moments, the in-between moments, moments you are unaware of, focused on capturing dynamic documentary imagery.


We Allow You To Celebrate

By staying in the background, like a fly on the wall, we intentionally stay out of your way so that you can truly be in the moment, feel your emotions, connect with each other and celebrate! Our photos are about real moments that unfold during the day naturally. You will relive the feelings you felt every time you look at them.

If the photos here touch your heart of people you do not even know, imagine how your heart will feel after we photograph your wedding day story!

We are very excited about the possibility of capturing similar, emotion-filled imagery of the unique stories on your wedding day!
