WEDDINGS

Visually telling stories, one wedding at a time.

 

Welcome!

Over the years, we have captured millions of moments from hundreds of weddings (we actually lost count at 500). Our portfolio is HUGE. The images we have chosen for our ultimate favorites, we have decided to be a bit creative in how we display them. Instead of just throwing them into a gallery and having you press play for a slide show, we decided to compile the images into a story-line using the different brides and grooms over the years. It is actually kind of cool in an abstract ‘artsy-shmartsy’ way.

Having a huge portfolio from being in the wedding industry for so long made way for a few obstacles that we had to find solutions for: which ones to select for our portfolio, how to display so many, and of course server size. We couldn’t possibly select only a handful. That would be like only selecting a few M&M’s instead of eating the bag (who does that?). Then we had to figure out how to display all of the photos we had chosen. The server size issue though, that was an easy fix of course (upgrade!). After hours turned into days and days blurred into weeks, we finally had the solution: two types of galleries. Our Featured Weddings gallery showcases individual weddings with dozens of images displayed for each one. Our Studio Highlights is the ‘artsy-shmartsy’ compilation we were talking about above in the first paragraph. These two galleries will give you a fully comprehensive look at our portfolio. If you would like to see even more, reach out to us and we will be more than happy to provide a full client gallery for you to review.

Studio highlights

A compilation of some of my favorite wedding images shot throughout the years

The studio highlights gallery is our favorite images from over the years in a timeline sequence. This is our photographic ‘art piece’ of hundreds of moments documented from various weddings and put together in a time sequential order to show you the art of visual storytelling.

FEATURED WEDDINGS

These are individual weddings featuring over sixty to one-hundred images each.

Our featured weddings is all about the individual wedding itself. Each gallery showcases the couple and their venue. Images are also placed into a story-line to visually describe the day from start to finish. You also have the ability to search through our galleries for weddings photographed at your venue of choice.

Website Makeover
