Experts at capturing the heart of your wedding day with ease. We are humbled & honored to capture love stories side by side.

While photography was the connection that first brought us together in Chicago, we never could have dreamed this is how our life would look all these years later.

As a husband and wife team, it is truly the honor of a lifetime to be welcomed into families to help preserve their story and legacy through joyful, honest, and emotional imagery.

And as parents to our own rambunctious crew of kiddos, the importance of what we do is never lost on us.

Soak in every second with your people.

The best memories (and as a result, the best photos) happen when you are fully present and in the moment. But how do we get to that point?

Simple - it starts with trust. It starts with truly listening to your story and understanding what matters most to the two of you. As a result, we are prepared to the utmost degree to handle your day with the grace & care your story deserves. 

In turn, you can relax and bask in each moment as it unfolds, trusting we are capturing it in all its uniqueness and beauty.

You made the entire process so easy and special and, on top of it all, you and James are simply incredibly human beings. There is no one else we’d rather have with us on such an important day. 


We bring a positive & calming presence to the hustle and bustle of the day

Unpretentious, honest, and kind-hearted. We are invisible when we need to be, and ready to step in and help whenever necessary as well. We value our shared humanity, and always lead with humility & our own quirky sense of humor.
