|She drinks tea. He drinks coffee. They both take cream, but no sugar. They each own a Cookie Monster cookie jar. He brews beer. She makes waffles. He is always lining up movies to watch. She is always keeping up with local magazines and reviews. He drummed, and she danced. He has many colors of Kangols. She loves long socks. They listen to the blues. They both think peanut butter was the best invention. He is a Leo. She is a Sagittarius. He took her to fly kites on their first date. Then he made her meatball soup. She accepted his invitation to be together for life. Then she gave him a child.|
It is the simplicity of the details, and the balance that we offer each other, that makes our fire burn bright. We have much gratitude for the couples and families that welcome us to take part in their special intimate moments. Everyone has their own unique story to be told, and we take great pleasure in being the ones to help preserve and honor those stories. We take our many years of commercial and editorial photography and prop styling experience, then combine it with our love of mythology...only to turn every one of your moments into your own photographic legend. Although we capture posed portraits when requested, our approach is mainly journalistic. We look forward to showing you the beautiful reality that you and your family are. The way your dress hangs in the window light. The tears of joy as mom puts on your boutiniere. Your first dance. These are the stars that make up your universe...let them shine...forever. Thank you for taking time to find out more about us, and we look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your special occasion!
