To Our Sweet Brides and Grooms, Thank you.

Deep breath. {inhale}

Hold steady. {Slowly exhale}

Patience.

Waiting with a keen eye to anticipate the brief intimate moment a person makes themselves truly vulnerable, open, expressing their bare feelings, is key.

It could be the honest glance between a Bride a Groom on their wedding day, the split second a High School Senior forgets they are trying to look perfect and their eyes open with a floodgate of raw personality, the brief sigh a model takes between poses. A fraction of a second. 

Over the years, we've been privileged to witness genuine emotion that has brought us many a time to tears.

That fraction, that split second makes a beautiful photograph a portrait. An image that captures YOU, our sweet Brides and Grooms.

We get to capture those fleeting, beautiful moments of life. A 1/100 of a second, a miniscule fraction of time in an extraordinary day - the genesis of a Family. Even in the whirl of a 12 hour wedding day, a beautiful moment composed in the frame of our cameras brings an inner peace and profound stillness - a moment forever preserved in history.

These are the moments which preserve your memories and rekindle emotions when you look back on your wedding day.
