Joy is Contagious

It all started with holding hands & sneaking kisses in the hallways of our high school…we were wild in love from the very beginning. Whatever souls are made of, ours is the same.

Young Bret and Brandie had big dreams and even bigger plans to make them happen...we felt the pull to do life 'different' than the norm; looking back, those crazy teenagers had the entrepreneurial gene and the insane courage to relentlessly pursue their passion & purpose.

It's been over a decade of hard work, intentional choices and making a ton of magic as a husband and wife team. We’ve built businesses infused with intentionality and fueled by freedom.

Our photography business was our first baby and nothing feeds our souls quite like being behind the camera. We love the process of helping people see the beauty they already possess and loving on allll the sweet people we meet through this wonderful job. Photography is our love language.

We believe in lazy mornings, a cozy cup of coffee, long kisses, and moments that feel like they go on forever.

Adventure is always the cure, but it's somehow also true that there's no place like home with the ones you love.
