What to Ask Before Booking a DJ

We have shot weddings at all kinds of places churches, chapels, cathedrals, venues, parks, hotels, and prisons……wait…prison weddings?

When they told […]

Katie & Tyler’s Wedding

Sometimes when you meet people you just automatically connect with them. That is exactly what happened when we first met Katie and Tyler at a styled shoot back in July. They were our bride and groom models, for obvious reasons. Even though before the shoot Katie had told us if they weren’t what we were […]
