Before we were wedding photographers, we were just two kids in love. We met on Instagram and fell in love over FaceTime. A shared interest in roadkill portraiture is what brought us together (it’s a funny story), but what compelled us to take a chance on a long-distance relationship and talk every day for 3 months was the fact that we were both seeking the same things out of life.

...To embrace people + hear their stories. To capture both the bold and loud moments as much as the quiet, in-between ones.
A recurring theme in our life together is that even though the world can be a dark and ugly place, good things can be found where you least expect them... and It’s usually beneath the surface. maybe for us, photography is a means to an end—to DIG DEEP FOR that truth & capture it the best we can...
