Our approach to wedding photography stems from how we approached our very own big day - don't think about who you think you should be on your wedding day - just be yourself.
It's easy to get caught up with the idea of perfection when it comes to the world of weddings, but the truth is, the best moments (and photos) always end up happening in those moments of unadulterated spontaneity.
It goes without saying that we like to shoot with a photojournalistic approach - capturing as many natural moments as we can, due to Ben's other career as a Photojournalist. That being said, we're so happy to provide direction in order to guide you comfortably through your photo session, as the most magic happens when you're both feeling as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. After all, a photo is only truly great when there's a lovely memory behind it, as well. Of course, providing our clients with beautiful photographs is essential to our business, but what's really important to us is ensuring that the experience of making those photographs is fun, relaxed, and memorable for all of our couples.
During couples or engagement sessions and weddings, Ben is the expert when it comes to capturing emotions, a sense of place, and all the people that make your day so special. Mariel is the authority on documenting the details that make up the sights, sounds and feel of your ceremony and reception, which help to tell the full story of your wedding long after it's over. We believe there is magic in both aspects of your wedding day, and we want you to look at our photos for years to come and allow them to remind you of the taste of those perfect hors d'oeuvres that were served during the cocktail hour, the sound of your niece's giggle as she played under your dress and the look on your parent's face as they gave you away.
