Here's our "why"

We believe that marriage is a beautiful thing when two people choose to walk through this life together. We believe that when two people choose to enter into this covenant together, they have been given one of the greatest gifts life has to offer. We want to see marriages thrive, and that all begins with your wedding!

your wedding is the beginning of a beautiful story

We believe the best wedding photography comes from having a GREAT relationship with your photographers, so we want our clients to know us as friends and not just someone holding a camera! Want to see if we’d be a good fit?

Jacob and Rachael are incredible, honest, kind, funny, genuine, and wonderful human beings who we can truly call friends after the process of planning our wedding. You are not just getting professional photographers, but part-time wedding planners, counselors, and friends when you hire them. When we got the pictures back, they were beautiful! So many personal shots of things that we absolutely missed because the day just flew by so quickly, and it is such a sweet experience to just look through them and wonder at the memories we will cherish forever that they captured so excellently.

Rachel and Jacob did a tremendous job on our wedding pictures. They are true professions with a uncanny attention to detail which makes the whole photo shoot memorable, fun, and at times whimsical. We had a lot of fun traipsing all over the state house grounds. The pictures we received we're nothing short of breath taking. You should definitely give these people a call if you are wanting the best.

We hired Jacob and Rachael as our wedding photographers and we could not be more happy with our decision! When we first started wedding planning, we were both nervous about our engagement photos and wedding photos - we both aren't a fan of getting our picture taken and feel like we instantly get awkward whenever a camera is around ;) Jacob and Rachael both made us feel super comfortable and both our engagement session and the day of the wedding felt SO natural! We absolutely could not be more happy with how all of our photos turned out. They captured every little detail absolutely perfectly and we will cherish our photos forever!
