We are a husband and wife team and we believe that capturing love stories for our couples and their future generations is the first step in creating the legacy of a fulfilling marriage.

Our approach to photography is genuine and natural as we strive to be fully present in the beauty of the moment so that we can tell your story as it unfolds. It is our goal to capture memories for our clients in the most natural way possible so that years from now, your grandchildren can look at our work, discover your story, and feel like they were there on the day that mattered most in your lives.

We believe whole-heartedly that classic never goes out of style and we're passionate about telling your story in a romantic and timeless way in order to create something that will last a lifetime. We're so glad you found us and can't wait to hear your story!

We are Jay and Alex

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

OUR WEDDING DAY

For our own wedding, we opted for an intimate ceremony among our closest family and friends and it was perfect! (Well, actually... Rome in late June? It was hot. Really hot.) Our favorite part of our wedding was that it was a true reflection of who we are as a couple, just the way it should be!

we love

TRAVELING

We have always loved to travel. Before we met, we had both traveled a lot on our own and those travel experiences were definitely something that drew us to each other from the start. It was on our first trip together that Alex knew Jay was the one!

THE DEVILS

Well, Jay loves the Devils. Alex tags along because she loves Jay. Very much.

ANNIVERSARY SESSIONS

Every other year, we book our favorite photographer for an anniversary session while we're traveling. So far we've done one in Paris and Vienna. Lisbon is next, if Alex has her way!

Alex purchased her first film camera. She bought it to document her month long stay in Florence and fell in love with both photography and Italy.

We met and went on our first two trips together: a road trip through the Southwest and a 6 week backpacking trip through Central America and Mexico. 

2011

We shot our first wedding together! Also, this is the year that Jay became a Jeopardy champ! You'll want to ask him how he lost on his second episode because you likely wouldn't have! 

2012

We tied the knot! For our honeymoon, we went on an 8 week trip through 12 countries in the Western Balkans. And we still loved each other afterwards!

our story

WHEN WE MET

We met thanks to two friends but the first three times we met, we ignored each other. Having completely disregarded each other, we had even forgotten that we had met before. Eventually, we agreed to a double date and it finally clicked between us!

random facts about us

THE PROPOSAL

It was so hot on the day that Jay proposed and when he tried to take the ring out of his pocket, he dropped it because his hand was so sweaty and the ring got stuck on his pocket liner. But it was a beautiful proposal because Alex didn't see that and Jay played it off like he dropped a coin and picked it up. Because he's smooth like that.

OUR WEDDING SONG

Our wedding song was "If You Were Mine" by Billie Holliday. We practiced the big dip in our living room for the end of our first dance and then Jay forgot all about it on the wedding day!

random facts about us

THE EARLY BIRD AND THE NIGHT OWL

Alex is the early bird, Jay is the night owl, Alex likes to plan, Jay prefers to be spontaneous. Alex likes a rolling suitcase, Jay won't travel without his backpack. We're different in a lot of ways but we wouldn't have it any other way!

Sometimes we take car selfies on the way to weddings

behind-the-scenes

One of our favorite parts of a wedding day is when it's time for the first look. Jay sometimes likes to torture our grooms by delaying the big reveal. He always says something about “icing the kicker.”

behind-the-scenes

Alex likes to play tricks on the grooms, too!

Sometimes we like to play crouching tiger, hidden dragon.

“Stars and Stripes Forever,” anyone?

We always love dinner time!! (Especially Jay, who often eats three meals.) Delicious food in the most unique settings!

behind-the-scenes

Once it’s cake-time, Jay makes sure no one is looking before he sticks his finger in the cake for a taste.

If you’re lucky, you’ll get a free photography lesson during the reception.

And a free dance lesson, too!

And at the end of the day, we're always happy and thankful to be able to do what we love!
