honest wedding photography for real people


Authentic is a really important word to us. Weddings are not about timelines, shot lists, or staged photos. That's why we seek out the details, the moments that happen when you're not paying attention. We find meaning in all of the little things that make up your day. We want you to forget that we're there. Just be truly present on your wedding day, enjoy being in the moment and focus on the things that matter the most.


During the final touches is when it all starts to sink in...and we think you can really see it in her expression.

From the Bride: "In this photo, our rabbi asked our parents to put their hands on our shoulders and bless us and our marriage. I can remember sitting there with the weight of those four hands on my back looking at Jesse and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of love surrounding me. I think what makes you and Chris such great photographers is that, when I look at this photo, I can almost feel those hands."

Moments after this photo, we called their names and they were snapped back to reality, barely aware that we had been taking photos. We had chosen the spot for them to stand in, but then stepped back and let them just be truly present in that moment with each other.  Everything else faded away. These are some of our favorite portraits.

Feedback

"We are completely blown away by how amazing our pictures are! You two are absolutely incredible, you captured every moment perfectly, and we will always cherish these photos. Pete and I just got home from our honeymoon, we haven't touched the suitcases, but we keep looking over our photos over, and over, and over again, reliving every minute of that day... We will forever be grateful to you two!"

"Michelle and Chris are absolutely amazing to work with. They make you feel relaxed right away and are so much fun that you'll want to hang out with them after your wedding!  It's been months since the wedding, but I probably still look through the photos weekly. I've been to weddings where the photographers are so intrusive that you always know where they are and they're always blocking your view of the bride and groom. I don't know how they did it, but I never really noticed Michelle and Chris at the ceremony or reception and our guests commented on that as well. "

"O-M-G is about all I could say when Jared and I saw the preview pictures from the wedding.  When I saw that first picture of Jared holding Charlie (the dog) and walking in the house, I knew they were all going to be sooo amazing.  I am so glad we get to have a whole book of photos because I do not know how I would be able to make a choice on which photo out of all of those we would pick.  I seriously can not get over how amazing they all look."
