About Us

We’re a married photography team & pro makeup artist too.

Our careers in photography and makeup began in advertising/print-media and  television commercials. We first met working together on a catalog-shoot for a clothing company, that was over 20 years ago.

Although we continue to work commercially, John was first introduced to photographing weddings through a friend of the family, it was a destination wedding in India. This experience really opened our eyes to the beauty of creating wedding stories and our wedding business organically grew from there.

Each wedding is different and every couple, unique. We believe in planning ahead for each event and to listen to what is most meaningful to our clients and to imagine the event with them. Visualizing the wedding as a collection of images and how they lay out, gives us a structure and in a surprising way, it also frees us up to be more present, capturing spontaneous moments as they happen and at appropriate times with gentle direction. What unfolds naturally is often more beautiful than what we could have ever imagined.

We love beautiful light and simplicity to tell a story that is genuine, graceful and full with life, never contrived. It’s very important to us that our couples experience their wedding day and not a photo shoot. We’re very careful to remain unobtrusive.

Thank you for taking the time to look through our work. If you’d like more information, please feel free to contact us.

Congratulations,
John & Colette
