Our photography style is a mix of photojournalism/documentary-style coverage, modern wedding photography, editorial detail photography, creative portraiture, landscape photography and more. As wedding photographers, we are prepared for any situation and are experts in numerous photography specialities.
Our editing style is generally crisp, vibrant and clean... a more timeless style. No funky Instagram filters here... just beautiful, timeless images.
When we're photographing a wedding, typical photo coverage looks like this:
wedding day breakdown
- Photojournalism/Documentary Coverage (60-70%) || This is a major component of our coverage, where we are documenting your day as it unfolds, everything from how your mom looks at you as you put on your gown, to the way that your groom squints his eyes when he laughs hysterically at his best man's speech. This is "moments-based" coverage and is truly precious to our clients!
- Editorial / Details (10%) || Documenting everything from your dress, shoes, bouquets, antique heirlooms shared with you, your invitation suite, your perfume, the setup of your ceremony... all of these little details that you've spent COUNTLESS hours pondering will all be documented as well!
- Creative Portraits (10-20%) || Depending on how much time / location options we're allowed for creative portraits on your wedding day, creative portraits are ALWAYS our clients "frame-worthy" images that end up on their walls after the wedding day! That gorgeous image at sunset, or that really cool silhouette of you on a hilltop. Even just romantic, swoon-worthy Harlequin-style smooches that belong on a romance novel! Our clients especially love these images at sunset.
- Lightly Posed Formal Portraits (10%) || Making sure you have beautiful, well-lit photos of you and your family, of you and grandma, of you and your flower girl... these are SO important. We always make the time to document your family legacy. These lightly posed images are often some of the most cherished after a wedding day! Our clients recognize and respect our process to carve out time for these timeless photos of their families.

About our albums
Every couple has a distinct style, every wedding is unique, and each album is a unique, handcrafted labor of love. Our Heirloom Albums and Photo Books will allow you to relive your perfect day again and again, while also preserving your legacy and offering a stunning heirloom for future generations to enjoy.
We use 100% natural, Italian leathers for our Heirloom Albums, selected for their texture, strength, and durability. The distressed leathers enchant with their rugged beauty, while our colored leathers are supple and luxurious. For our Photo Books, the layered weaves of linens or Japanese silks highlight the craftsmanship and beauty of the albums.
