a little 
about us

best friends, high school sweethearts, and husband & wife wedding photographers.
On any normal day you’ll find us working on our next DIY project for our fixer upper, snuggling our sweet pup Carson, or celebrating the new marriages of our sweet clients friends. We are pretty much the definition of homebodies, but every now and then we crave spontaneous adventures! Our dream date includes long, romantic strolls…around Target…with Starbucks in hand. And we pretty much treat every car ride like karaoke night.


We're Bret and brandie...

Oh hey!

I love finding the joy in life; whether it’s watching an endless amount of Friends & Gilmore Girls, jamming out to Taylor Swift or enjoying a glass of sweet wine with my besties. I'm a passionate dreamer who keeps our life vibrant!

I'm Brandie...

see her favs!

I love pretty much anything "nerdy" ... Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Pokemon, you name it, I can geek out on it! I can never get enough coffee, and have yet to find anything that isn't better with Nutella on it.

I'm Bret...

see his faves!

We took the plunge and became full-time wedding photogs!🎉

To-do lists and planners give me life. Most satisfying feeling in the world? Scribbling out something on a list.

There’s something oh so cozy, comforting, and slightly addicting about the warm glow of a scented candle.

When I was thirteen, I unboxed my first iPod Video. The second I touched it's polished metal back and its buttery smooth click wheel, I was Apple obsessed.

If it’s 70 and sunny you’ll probably find me lacing up my shoes for a quick run, while listening to my latest mix.
