About Us

We are story tellers. 
         Behind the camera we work to give you the best images possible. Our goal is to ensure you feel comfortable, beautiful and relaxed on your wedding day. Story telling is what we do best, we want to tell your love story from the engagement, to capturing all of the intricate details of the wedding. We provide images that take you back to that "wedding day feel" well after your wedding is over. When you look at your wedding images we want you to relive those moments over and over again.

      We are happily married and we have two little girls. We have always enjoyed weddings mainly because of all the happiness associated. Knowing that we can give you images that remind you exactly what you were doing, saying and thinking at that moment makes it worth while. We look forward to helping you remember your wedding and telling your story the way you want the world to see it.

Things We Love

We love our friends.
These boys are our friends.

We love our family.
It is everything.

We love our small town.
People wave at you on the street.

We love our prints. Prints are real, and you can see them, and touch them. They have texture. They are real.

We love our pets.
This is Isaac and he's a hunter.

about us.....

Marie loves sailboats.
I can't say why, but perhaps its because they are hard to build, and hard to sail. But, once you get it, then it's yours.

Marie and John went above and beyond for us before, during, and after our wedding day... They both made our wedding day stress free and worked with our budget. Our photos turned out so beautiful and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives! We would recommend then to all our friends and family. Thank you again for capturing our special day for us. We cannot thank you enough!

Marie is a phenominal photographer and such a joy to work with! She was wonderful the day of our wedding and so easy to work with.  Your wedding photographer should be one you are absolutely  comfortable around and who catches candid moments so, as a bride and groom, you can look back through your album and completely relive your day. Marie does JUST that and MORE. I would absolutely recommend her for any of your photography needs- yhank you so much for everything, Marie!!

Loved working with Marie for my wedding. She was professional, easy to get in contact with, shot beautiful photos of our wedding, and delivered our images in a timely fashion. Would highly recommend her to anyone that needed a wedding photographer.

Started off having a small idea and Marie turned it into my dreams! Such a skilled and amazing photographer. I've never felt so comfortable and relaxed during such a intense, emotional, and busy day. She took care of so much, walked me through the steps. Her turn around is quick and just leaves you with one hard question. Which pic is your favorite? We can't wait to work with her for future family photos. Once you find a great one, and she is, you can never let her go.
