Everything about Nicole and Owen’s wedding day was pure magic. A wedding in the forest is always a dream to photograph and film, but add a little dust in the air through the trees, the light falling through the leaves at the right time, and a couple hopelessly in love… and like I said, you […]

Haley and Jon’s wedding day was natural. Everything about it was natural, easy, and flawless, and their love for each other was as evident as their laughter. You can see their photos over here, but I’d watch the video if I were you. As usual, the password for the videos is “vintage”. Haley & Jon […]

Haley & Jon contacted us only a few weeks before their wedding; they decided to tie the knot, and they didn’t want to wait to do it. That is the kind of love story that makes us love what we do, even more. The way these two look at each other is beyond words (which is […]

I met up with Jordan and Jason at their family’s home to explore a little bit of nature and spend a little bit of time… fishing! It’s possible (and definitely accurate) that I got a hook in my hand once or twice during this shoot, all in the name of love. Working with these two […]

Stephanie and Glen were kind enough to welcome myself and our wonderful second-shooter Paul into their intimate wedding celebration at their home property, and it was such a pleasure to be a part of their wedding. Stephanie is an incredible DIY-er; from her custom-made shoe design, to the decor surrounding their stunning ceremony under their […]

I first heard about Max and Lischa’s love story through a mutual friend who believed our photography style – and our belief in what we do – might be a good fit with this beautiful couple. Simplistic, minimalist and yet deeply meaningful, their wedding would pay tribute to the investment that both Max and Lischa […]

Part Two of Ryan & Whitney’s engagement shoot is probably some of the most fun I’ve ever had at an engagement shoot. These two are getting married next summer and when they do, they will be Mr & Mrs Pease – so it seemed only appropriate, by the genius idea of Whitney, do have a […]
