Who We Are:

We are photographers, cultural anthropoligists and documentarians. We study the art of capturing families, couples and cultures. A few years ago, photo journalistic weddings was all the rage. There was a big movement to walk away from the "cheesy," wedding photographer and move toward authenticity. Ultimatley, a move toward capturing emotions. This is where we differenciate ourselves from other photographers. We think the wedding is the best place to capture humanity at it's best. 

Who we are not:

An instagram camera geek with the latest and greatest camera trends that will take up half your timeline with photography set ups so he can get into a fashion magazine. Yes, we have all the latest gear. We LOVE instagram and our cameras AND, we still get into the fashion magazines, but we do it with respect for your event while getting amazing images. We love our couples and we love our work AS MUCH as we love our cameras.  :)

  Story and emotion take place all around us as a wedding. We are so moved by this image of a grandmother watching her grandson get married. Takes our breath away.

We gently step in and guide the process when needed but ultimatley we work to capture things as they happen. We are unobtrusive, observant and supportive. We will laugh and cry with you. We even pack tissues in our camera bags, because we usually well up at some point.

THE TEAM

 

PRAISE

 
I can not imagine a better experience. I had worked with James & Brian before so knew their level of passion, quality of work and fun quirkiness. Having them with us all weekend was uber comfortable.. just like they were normal guests (except a lot harder working). They captured so many precious moments that we didn’t get to see. Looking at our photos will never get old.

How To Book . . .

Our photo collections start at $3000. Click the WORK WITH US button to tell us more about your wedding. One of our friendly event producers will get back to you speedily.

Set up a meeting with your producer to discuss your event and select your collection and fig photographer; a contract via e-mail to follow when you are ready to move forward. (We highly suggest meeting in person if you are able as we highly value relationship and face time—no, not the iPhone kind, although that's cool technology, there.)

Book your collection and meet with your photographer before your wedding to plan your party. (With all the time you saved, we encourage you to take up crocheting, finally start a major binge of "Stranger Things," or take that dream vacation to Abu Dhabi you've always dreamed of. Or not.)

We look forward to hearing from you and being the visual storytellers of your day!
