We’re passionate about making things easy and comfortable for our couples- all while creating imagery that stands the test of time.
We got married on a cold, rainy day in October of 2015. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, we don’t have any photographs from the day to look back on. We were robbed of the opportunity to have our memories of one of the happiest days of our lives preserved in any way. When we tell our daughter about our wedding day, words will have to suffice in lieu of photos. There will be no album for us to flip through with our grandchildren during our last days, and no prints for our great-grandchildren to discover in the bottom of a box in the attic after we’re long gone.
This is why we’ve dedicated our lives to being wedding photographers rooted in purpose with the goal of preserving memories for our clients. While the memories of our day will fade with time, we tell the story of their wedding through our photographs and ensure that the memories that day stretch over and past the course of a lifetime. We provide our clients with the best hand-crafted heirloom albums we could find- guaranteed to last long enough for your grandchildren to turn its pages.
It's not every day someone gets married. It's okay to not know where to start! We're wedding professionals who work more than 20 weddings and many planners each year. Let's walk through the Cincinnati wedding photography experience together- step by step!

We'll send you questionnaires, check-ins, and can even hop on a zoom call to make sure we have every little detail nailed down BEFORE we arrive on your wedding day. Preparation is key to our main goal on the actual wedding day: to make sure you enjoy every. single. second.

BACK TO THE BEGINNING↠
DELIVERY & ALBUM CREATION
We use both a medium format film camera and a digital camera to capture the wedding day as it organically unfolds. When we take a photo on our film camera, we slow down and photograph the moments that truly matter. The ones that make us FEEL something in that moment. It’s raw, it’s real, and it's imagery that stands the test of time. Film is a hands-on process- loading and unloading film, measuring the light, and ensuring the composition is perfect, but it's worth it to provide
tangible photographs that will leave a legacy. Film isn’t about being trendy. It’s about providing our clients with a hand-crafted experience while integrating a wedding album that will be passed down for generations. When supplemented with digital photography, you'll get the look of film without sacrificing the number of photos delivered to you. Be sure to ask us more about this during your consultation – we love talking film!
