You know the age-old adage ,“you are what you eat”?
We believe the same goes for visual artists – we are what we look at.
A few years back we found the wedding photography presence on social media to be rather incestuous.
We all spent our free time following each other’s work and, as a result, it all started to look the same. Which meant the stories we were telling all started to look the same.
No two stories are alike. Light, human emotion, and the moments we live are ever in a state of evolution and regeneration. We realized the only way could to escape the perils of making photographs like everyone else was to stop looking where everyone else was looking.
So a year and a half ago we quit social media and started telling stories in a unique way that seeks solely to honor and tell the truth about the people in front of our cameras.
We took road trips, long walks, read countless books on mindful living, played with our kids, and told meaningful stories of wedding days and families without a phone in our hands. We started to see the world and the people in it with new eyes, and we didn’t want to go back. We started a podcast about it, and ended up giving several interviews and being written up in our local paper.
Today we stand behind this decision more than ever. It’s not just for our good. It’s for yours.
Although we won’t be sharing the photographs we make of you and your loved ones on social media (and hope you feel free to share your images anywhere and everywhere!), we believe this decision is really good news for you. It has given us a completely unique take on your story .. the ability to actually see you and the ones you love in all of your real, raw beauty.. To tell your story in a way that is true to you, not chasing the latest photo trends in the industry.
Because, let’s be honest, trends are temporary.
But true beauty, stories of love, and relationships? Those are forever.
