We are parents to 3 crazy children.
We were both raised in Texas, but neither of us fit the typical southern mold you could easily say. The P.N.W is where we will soon be calling home.
Some of our musical faves include: Pearl Jam, Iron and Wine, Paul Simon, Dr. Dogg, Incubus, James Taylor, Pink Floyd, Xavier Rudd, Sia, and Jack Johnson.
Both born in December (in the 80’s).
Currently we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 guinea pig, 4 chickens, and 1 corn snake!.
We love to travel and will gladly fly to photograph your wedding or family.
(if you would like to see more images from our personal family album, click HERE).
Natural, honest photography is our passion. We approach photography at weddings in a candid and documentary style. We won't try to control your day or even tell you to "smile". We deeply respect the idea of letting the whole day unfold in a very natural way: recording moments that are real and honest.
We do like to include some creative portraiture at one or two periods of the day - very natural and minimal in direction; just the two of you in front of the camera, being real, and honest, and nothing more.
We approach family photography in the same way we approach weddings: preferring the candid 'Day In The Life', or, 'Slice Of Life', sessions to the old stiff and boring portraits that you may remember as a kid. This is where we come to your home for a few hours or sometimes a full day and document you and your family being 100% real. Nothing posed. Nothing staged. Nothing fake. Just real, honest moments. After all those are the photographs that you will look at hanging on your wall and will make you smile.
If you feel we would be a good fit for each other, we would love to be a part of your wedding day or a photo session and document all the beautiful moments that will go by in the blink of an eye. Drop us a line here via the contact button below and tell us what you have planned.
