Before Instagram, photography, and even written history there were stories. Stories shaped our world by spreading knowledge of what to hunt or when to plant crops, they created entertainment to bring the community together and acted as generational history. Stories are the beginning, in today's fast-paced and growingly visual world its more important than ever to document your stories not only for yourselves but for generations to come.

“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.”

How We Tell Stories

We tell stories by walking a very careful line between being both an active participant in your wedding and also knowing when to step back and allow moments, feelings, and experiences to unfold on their own.

Often times the best images are created when you just allow people to feel and it's important to us that we allow you that space to enjoy moments and also really express how you are feeling!

Why Should You Pick a Storyteller for Your Photographer?

Although the "Instagram Bangers" make for jaw-dropping images that's not really what a wedding is all about. It's about the love you share for your partner. It's about the journey you have walked to get to this point. It's about all the ups, downs, and mundane Tuesdays you have experienced. It's the excitement for tomorrow. Often photographers chase the images that couples just aren't as interested in because the moments that matter is dancing with your new spouse, sharing laughs with your bridal party, and somber moments with loved ones. That's what we love most about weddings and that's what we show up to create not just art but art that encompasses your journey and tells the story of you.

How to Help Create Visual Stories

The relationship between a couple and their wedding day photographer is super important. If the photographer learns about the couple both their interests and history they can craft images that reflect that history. It's so important to open yourself to vulnerability and allow your photographer to know you. We want to know what you are most excited about but also whos missing from your wedding day or what you have gone through to get to this monumental point. Learning about your story is part of the image-making process that we love most and its what makes your images unique to you.
