It’s all about people…being people.

” Take care of all your memories because you cannot relive them.” – Bob Dylan

Weddings are not about the cake.

They are not about the dress or the shoes (although some have been quite unforgettable!)

They are about the moments that unfold when you bring everyone you care about together to celebrate an event that only happens once or twice in your life.

Moments such as the reaction your dad gives you when he sees you for the first time in your dress or the look your groom portrays when you emerge into the ceremony. It is the almost flaw-less dip during the first dance or the tear that was shed by the uncle whom you thought was incapable of emotion. Weddings are about the firsts, the lasts, and the spontaneous unscripted moments.

It is all about people…being people and coming together to celebrate you both as a couple.

How do you want your wedding story to be told?

Outdoor Butler Wedding

“Maria recently did our May 26th wedding and she and her crew were amazing! I was very nervous planning a wedding for Pittsburgh, PA while living in Dallas, TX but with Maria I had one less thing to worry about. She asked me for my lists ahead of time for Church/Reception photos which made it nice and easy the day of! Our Church pictures were done within 30 min (and we both have big families) and the bridal party photos were done very quickly as well, which was nice! She even came up to me towards when her crew was getting ready to wrap up and asked if there where any other photos we wanted before they left, which I thought was very awesome!” -Maria B.
