Hi! We’re Joey (he/him) and Erin (she/her). We approach weddings with authenticity because we think your wedding film should feel representative of who you are and what your day truly felt like. We try to stay as out of the way as possible on your wedding day so that we can capture genuine moments that allow us to lead with your personalities.
We actively work to be an LGBTQ+ and BIPOC inclusive company and completed our LGBTQ+ Inclusive Certification through Equally Wed Pro in 2022. We work to make each of our wedding videos fit the individuality of each couple because every couple is unique and every wedding day looks and feels different.
Inclusivity and authenticity are extremely important to us as a company and we love working with couples who share those values. We chose to list on Equally Wed because we want couples who may not feel represented or included in the wedding industry to be able to easily find vendors who have their backs.

What has made our events magical over the last 10 years, is our ability to listen to you and create an experience based on your personality and style. Events and weddings will always be about you. We give you the meticulous attention to detail you deserve. You don’t compete for our attention, but we certainly compete with vendors and venues to ensure you get the absolute best.

We are a boutique event management company which means we limit the amount of clients we take on each year to eliminate being overburden and decreasing our quality of service to you. What does this mean? We produce no more than two weddings each month and no more than 6 corporate or social events each month.

Hey, I’m Chris and I provide bold, modern, and authentic photography for unconventional couples. I believe that your dream wedding should be unapologetically you, and that you deserve the peace of mind knowing that that I’ll capture real emotions and real moments without noticing I’m there. I’ll thoughtfully document all that you cherish so that you’ll be able to relive the joy of your wedding for years to come.
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions of the wedding planning process. You need to be absolutely sure you find someone you’re comfortable with because they’ll be with you the entire day. You need to love their style because you’ll be looking back on the photos for decades to come.
Peace of Mind
I’ve photographed 125+ weddings. I’ll capture everything about your wedding day without having to be asked. You’ll get timeless photos, not bizarre sepia toned fad edits. You’ll look back and remember the day as clearly as if you were there.
I like to keep everything very casual. I provide very light direction so you won’t be forced to pose in unnatural ways. There will be banter and real laughter. It’s essentially an awesome adventure where someone just happens to me taking photos. Couples routinely tell me that their anxiety quickly disappeared and that they had a lot more fun than they expected to.
I appreciate bold aesthetics, wide shots, and incorporating architectural elements. My couples tend to appreciate those things as well. Why have an epic location or venue if you don’t capture it?
