What you’ll find in our work is our portraits never emphasize the contrived or feel artificial, but instead reflect personality and genuine feeling. We always photograph with the greatest respect for our subjects: you and your loved ones. To help make you comfortable in front of our lens, we ask questions and give little emotional nudges. This nuanced approach allows you both to come out of your shells and be comfortable while still being you. No forced laughs or awkward smiles here. You can see in our work that people often forget they are being photographed.
Our stories are complemented by our photojournalistic images, the in-between moments and breaths between the big *events*. We never put our camera down. Even when we feel we *got it,* we don’t stop shooting because we are never exactly sure how the story may unfold.
The edge in our work is the accumulation of images. They bounce off one another and become elements in the larger story. We always aim for our work to stand the test of time. Our intention is for you to look back on the photos and not only remember how things looked, but how things felt so you can feel the joy and love from the day years down the line.
In order to translate this day just as you remember it, we put tremendous care into building a genuine and real friendship with you so that you don’t feel us and our camera in the room come wedding day. We are artists, but you will never feel like you have a stuffy photographer following you around all day (we are way too bad at dancing for that). We come in as a counterpart to your wedding crew.
We are your friends with the professional gear, who will crack Broad City jokes with you but also be able to chat with grandma. Both of us, Sam and Katherine, have the innate ability to be everywhere at once, photographing your day, but also your calming force when and if you need it. We make you feel like you have a friend in your corner who has got. yo. back. on the photography end (that’s why we invest in insurance, backup gear, and more!) but will also have you laughing all day.
