Mauertown, Virginia - From what Allison has told us, your family farm is truly special and this is the magnificent framework you guys have chosen for the celebration of your story. Quite honestly, we love you for it! The visual possibilities are endless and make for the perfect backdrop; travel, adventure, authentic moments with family and friends, it’s all there and we cannot wait to explore this week of celebration with you.
For us it has always been about people, first and foremost. From our early days as photojournalists to now traveling the globe documenting wedding celebrations. It is the people that we’re drawn to. From the ‘big’ moments (first kiss, first dance), to those glorious ‘in between’ moments. We will move with you, unobtrusively capturing every last one.
In your photographs, you can expect a timeless aesthetic that is simple, quite honestly capturing moments that are authentically you.
This truly is all about you, the two of you–your connection, your experience, your story. We have no preconceived ideas of how this incredible experience of your wedding celebration will look. No. There is a sacredness, a '1 of 1' uniqueness to your wedding that is so precious to us we dare not alter it. Rather we will move with you, reactively documenting you guys exactly as you are, in pursuit of that "decisive moment". We are not wedding photographers, we are artists, photographing a wedding. Our commission is to capture you guys exactly as you are. Your expression of yourselves!
Our approach is simple; explore, collaborate, experience and create, always pursuing the singular. We believe that our unique worldview and ability to connect with people is what allows us to create imagery that stands alone, work that is emotional…and connected…and nuanced; art.
“Our commission is to understand you, recognize what is important and capture you exactly as you are.”

“Such beautiful imagery from a magical day!”
