MEET YOUR

Hi There! I’m Kate. I am half of the heart and soul that makes up our photographer (& cool girl) duo. I am also a wife to my best friend and high school sweetheart, Dave and a (very) proud mama to our two beautiful (and smart and funny … I could go on) daughters, Annalise & Nora. I love dancing and being silly with my babes, family walks (along side our fur baby, Kira) around the neighborhood or hiking some trails, drinking a morning cup (or two) of espresso, and enjoying new adventures, big or small. I am a want to be gardener, a DIY project finder, a compulsive hair color changer and a lover of tacos and margaritas.

GO BACK   •

After spending many years after high school trying to hone in on where my true passion lies, I found photography by accident in a film class for an elective in college. I knew this was the place for me when I realized I was just as happy as the wedding guests throughout the day. After 6 years, I still cry at every wedding, I laugh along with the party and even after a 10 hour day, I still leave with a smile on my face. 

MEET JILL

Hey guys! I’m Jill, the other half of this great big dream! I’ve been married to my husband Ryan for almost 7 years and we have very busy twin boys, Kyle & Troy. We recently found our way back to the neighborhood I grew up in and my heart has never been happier than it is in this small town. I’m a lover of casual fashion (I own way too many pairs of Toms, all in the shades of gray or black), driving to Ocean City for pizza on the boardwalk, camping with my 3 favorite guys and our two dogs, and napping. Because who doesn’t love a good nap?

Photographing weddings fell into my lap very unexpectedly, but I truly consider myself one of the lucky ones that has been able to find passion in my career!

01.

Horseback riding through Jamaica

Walking down the aisle with my dad, seeing my closest family and friends and then all I could see was my (soon to be) husband

Feeling my first true labor contraction. (I realize this isn’t an usual favorite moment, but it was a moment that felt so undeniably real that I was about to become a mama)

The moment my husband proposed after sending me on a day long scavenger hunt to our favorite places

Our first kitchen project when we bought our (cosmetically) fixer upper home

OUR TOP 5 FAVORITE MOMENTS

Seeing my sweet man cry on our wedding day. It was overwhelming and unexpected

The day we found out we were having twins (talk about a surprising ultrasound!)

Meeting my pen pal of 10 years for the first time in the JFK airport ... we laughed and hugged as if we just hadn’t seen each other in a while

The cross country road trip my husband and I took after only dating for a short time. I knew I wanted to marry him when I could withstand long hours in a cramped little car next to him

Getting off the plane, jet lagged and excited in Australia for the first time (and the 2nd time!)

Our alone time with our bride & groom. We love this time to photograph our couples truly enjoying their wedding day, enjoying each other’s company and lots of cuddles.

Bride & Groom portraits because it’s the one time that the craziness of the day subsides and we get to focus on the reason we are here!

barefoot, not socks and shoes

movies at home, not in theatres

04.

THIS or THAT

coke, not coffee
 
beer, not wine
 
pool, not the ocean
 
dogs, not cats
 
camping, not the beach

"The purpose of this glorious life is not simply to endure it, but to soar, stumble, and flourish as you learn to fall in love with existence. We were born to live, my dear, not to merely exist" - Becca Lee

"Someone once told me to live for the little things in life. Live for the 5am sunrises and the 5pm sunsets where you’ll see colors in the sky that don’t usually belong. Live for the road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair. Live for the days when you’re surrounded by your favorite people who make you realize the world is not a cold, harsh place. Live for the little things because they will make you realize that this is what life is about, this is what it means to be alive.” - A.Y

MORE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

our approach

They say that your wedding day is the fastest day of your life. You plan for months, maybe even years, then POOF—you blink and it’s over–The groom’s face the moment he sees his bride. A father dancing with his daughter. Grandmom busting a move on the dance floor. The smiles, laughter, and tears. 

These are moments that you should have forever. These are moments that we want to capture for you because we’re as passionate about your wedding as you are.

C'MON, SHARE YOUR HEART WITH US!

You captured me so well! I never thought I was photogenic. Thanks for making me look fabulous!
