WEDDINGS

We want to help you
have it with you forever.

You are living one of your best stories.

our vision

We want to help you 
have it with you forever.

This time is fleeting – 
this boy-meets-girl, falls-in-love, 
pops-the-question and ties-the-knot
start to everything that will come after. 

Much more is ahead, but nothing
just like the magic of this moment.

We want to tell your story from the start.

How did you meet? What small details paved the way to your big day? We put these into writing through feature articles that pair wonderfully with photos.

We want to stun you with how beautiful your wedding day truly was.

For full pricing details and other information, please contact us!

Wedding collections begin at $2,000.

We want to capture your joy and anticipation in being almost-married.

The engagement period is special in and of itself. We offer complementary engagement sessions, because no curation of your story would be complete without one.

Yes, you will have lived it – but seeing your once-in-a-lifetime moments presented with poignance and artistry is a different experience entirely. 

We want to present your images in a way that does them justice.

This begins with an online presence you can be proud to share and continues with custom  albums that will showcase your memories for years to come.

We want to give you a finished product that goes far beyond great photos.

All together, the items we offer create a multi-faceted collection memorializing this pivotal time that will soon be in your past.

We are a husband and wife who know first-hand how much this chapter means.

Every "I do" we document is much more than just a paycheck to us. We count ourselves lucky to capture these love stories we can truly believe in – because we're living our own.

that's why
...

Because I wasn't
expecting him.

Maybe it's true love comes
when you least expect it.

our story

Because I wasn't 
expecting him.

our story

I wasn't expecting a first date that started with lunch, then stretched on through dinner and could have lasted longer, even, if I hadn't insisted I needed to get home to watch "The Bachelorette." (On a related note, I wasn't expecting to be enough at ease so early on to admit to such a guilty pleasure.)

I wasn't expecting his sweetness, thoughtfulness and willingness to drive over an hour to see me, when certainly there must have been plenty of other dateable girls who lived closer.

I wasn't expecting to be in pre-marital counseling six months after we met (or in our case, pre-engagement counseling, because we figured we might as well learn sooner rather than later whether we were crazy to be considering marriage). And I really wasn't expecting what came as soon as our counseling ended ...




I wasn't expecting him to pull off of I-29 on a snowy February night, hand me an album with photos of us (and one of a ring on the last page), then come around to my side of the car, open the door and drop to one knee on the wet pavement. (Exit 19 outside of Platte City hadn't been where he'd intended to propose – but after I'd unintentionally thwarted his original plan by declining to take a late-night walk through the snow, he'd decided on the drive home he couldn't wait any longer.)


I wasn't expecting to come across an Old Testament footnote, a few months before we married, that seemed a perfect promise for us and our wedding date of 10.10.10: “The number 10 symbolizes completeness or finality. It is equivalent to the expressions ‘as long as you live’ and ‘all your days forever.’”

I wasn't expecting the years since 10.10.10 to pass so quickly, to be so pivotal, to press our lives together so completely it's hard to think of them ever being any other way.

Now, we have a sense of the journey our couples are starting in their own lives as we snap away at their ceremonies. We can hope for their futures, because we've lived a portion of the future we had ahead of us on our wedding day. And we feel strongly the value of their images as a visual reminder of the promises they've made.

our biz, in a nutshell

We began this business in 2011 as a perfect fit for our skill sets of storytelling (Erin) and technical expertise (Seth). We both already had photography experience (Erin professionally, Seth as an advanced hobbyist), and to get to work together in a field we love is pretty much the best!

Here are some of
our latest love stories. 

A love story comes full circle

They didn't dare assume on their first date that what they began then would lead to a wedding at the same site, in exactly five years.

Big romance in a small town

They were unlikely to meet, him from New York City and her from rural Kansas. But once they did, it was clear they were meant-to-be.

It all started with a song, that night he caught her attention singing karaoke. So it only made sense to seal the deal by singing, as well.

Big Romance in
a small town

It was her first day at her first real job, but it was he who ended up with something – or someone – quite exciting to call home about.

A second chance at becoming soulmates

Seeing her at the gym, he knew he had to speak to her – no matter how many trips it took to the water fountain next to her treadmill.

Their teenage dating may have fizzled out fast, but this didn't discourage him from pursuing another shot with her a decade later.
