Do yourselves a favor and book Michael and Laura right now! As soon as we met Michael and Laura their enthusiasm, passion, and commitment to what they do was obvious. My husband and I had no idea what to do at first but they made it incredibly easy and made us feel (and look) like models. Their energy is contagious and they had us laughing and forgetting we were in front of their cameras. We would 100% recommend Michael and Laura without an ounce of hesitation! They are amazing, so fun to work with, and capture every moment beautifully. We could not have asked for better photographers!

Michael & Laura were such a joy to work with! They are both laid back, caring and fun to work with. We felt much more comfortable and confident throughout the wedding planning process because of them. They were flexible with us, encouraging, and beautifully captured our wedding. They keep you laughing & smiling the whole way through! They are truly gifted and make a wonderful team. Everyone should work with this sweet couple!

Michael and Laura went way above and beyond anything my husband and I ever expected from wedding photographers. Not only are the photos they took of our wedding day (& engagement) absolutely stunning, but also their caring presence the day of our wedding made a HUGE difference. They were such a positive presence and hyped the wedding party and family up for photos, they are genuine caring people, and you can tell that they truly love what they do which shows in the beauty of their work. My husband and I absolutely love Michael and Laura and hope to work with them again very soon!!

When I found Michael and Laura, I didn’t know how lucky I was going to be. They were fun, professional, unfailingly kind, unbelievably talented, and just downright awesome people. It made everything so easy. They took such good care of us. Not only did I feel at ease knowing they were in total control, our pictures make me cry every time I look at them. They are beautiful and I’m so thankful for all of those precious moments captured. There is no other photographer you need to look for...there is NO one out there like Michael and Laura!!!!

What makes us different?

We aim to deliver images that are lasting and beautiful.  But that's what makes us the same as every other photographer.  

What makes us different is that we strive to create an experience where you feel loved, well served, and taken care of every step of the way.  We want to show up on the wedding day feeling like good friends, not just vendors.  We want you to feel comfortable and have fun throughout our entire time together.

Images + Delivery

We typically deliver about 100 images an hour.  There are several things that factor into this, but we take being your eyes on the wedding day seriously and so we deliver large galleries. 

You'll see a sneak peek within 24 hours, your blog post will be up in 2 weeks, and you'll receive your full gallery within a month.

This business grew from a shared love of photography, and a deep love for each other. We wanted to be able to spend more time together; doing something we love with the person we love. We want to use this business to grow our own marriage, but also to grow others’ marriages. We want to encourage our couples to have long, happy marriages. And we feel like we can do that through our next two “whys”.

we love marriage

it's why we do what we do

We want the happiest moments of peoples lives to be frozen forever. We want the joy and love to last. We love looking at old photos. We fill our home with images of happy times and loved ones. Why? Because they remind us of the abounding JOY in our lives. They remind us, even if things are rough, or people are gone, or we are having a bad day, that we have incredible happiness and beautiful memories in our lives. Pictures are about more than just looking back. They are about embracing what we have. We want to be able to provide those frozen moments of blissful times for our clients, so they are always able to look at them and feel joy.

we want to freeze perfect moments

it's why we do what we do

We want to use this business to love on others. We want our clients to know they are genuinely loved and cared for. We  want to serve others in a meaningful and Godly way. We know the wedding planning process can be stressful and can strain relationships. But we want to change that. We want to be there to support our clients during their engagement, on their wedding day, and throughout their marriage.
