    TIMELESS, MODERN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

    FOR THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION

Award-Winning Wedding Photography

THE IMPORTANCE OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

If there’s ever one day in your life that comes close to being perfect, it’s probably your wedding day. As your wedding photographers, we are truly in a unique position. We get to forever memorialize the most powerful moments of your wedding, and we view this access as an incredible privilege. We will be by your side when you put on your dress, experience your first look during your very last moments as fiancés and as you recess back down the aisle, hand in hand as you experience your first moments as husband and wife. With us (Valerie & Ed) as your photographers, you never have to strain to remember the little details that made the day special. (You’ll likely even notice things in your images that you didn’t during your wedding day.) While we are unobtrusive and documentary in our photojournalistic approach, we have learned when to step in to make sure you're at your best. We capture your story in crisp, colorful clarity.

YOUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE IS OUR PRIORITY.

Your wedding day is, for us, between six and twelve hours of on the go, creative, nonstop photography – and we wouldn’t have it any other way! In addition to being incredibly detail oriented, we are also multi-taskers - making your day even more worry free. We are bow-tiers, timeline gurus, make-up fixer-uppers, furniture-movers, you name it. Our clients are more than just clients…they become our friends. We cherish putting you as our priority. (We even find ways to spoil our clients, but sssshh that’s a secret!)

  • EMOTIONAL MOMENTS

    EMOTIONAL MOMENTS

Where words fail, photos speak

I love that my family, friends and clients can recognize one of my photos by my style alone. I get messages saying, I knew this was a Valerie photo before I even saw the photo credit below it!" I love bringing together the editorial, photojournalistic feel of those images that capture the emotion and movement of the day with the commercial feel of photographs that would suit the cover of a magazine. Ed and I both have a background in news photojournalism, and we both feel that the most rewarding photos we can capture on a wedding day are emotional, deeply genuine moments in time that you will treasure most for the rest of your lives.
