We are bottomless wells of enthusiasm and humor. Whether it’s bridesmaids shotgunning PBR’s or a secret couple handshake, we’re game for all things that make the experience unique to you!
We're your cheerleaders with pro cameras in hand instead of pom poms. Nothing makes our hearts sing like knowing that you don’t just look really good but FEEL really good while having your day documented!
Workouts that don’t feel like workouts
Walks in neighborhoods we could never afford
Scrambling to build a campfire before the sun goes down
Happy humans who boldly follow their bliss
Parks & Rec (Jean-Ralphio & Mona Lisa specifically)
A great deal on boxed wine
We are as goofy as we are attentive, deeply caring, and service-oriented. We will go to the moon and back for you because that’s just our hearts doing their thing.
LAUREN & MITCHELL
It all started at a coffee shop in our college town. Lauren would study there in the mornings and couldn’t tell if Mitchell liked her because he was so sweet and funny with every customer. Eventually, she noticed Mitchell sweeping around her table for no reason and asking if she had the wifi password every ten minutes.
Truthfully, the most high-tech camera gear we had until 2016 were those disposable cameras that could also take photos underwater. Lauren took a DSLR photography class in high school and hated it. Fast forward to 2015 when we moved to Nashville, TN for Mitchell to work in the music industry. Lauren assumed that watching him grow a business with his art would also be fulfilling for her - alas, it was not! As a gift for her birthday (and an attempt to get some free content for his music) Mitchell bought Lauren a heavily used and loved Rebel T2i. For weeks, she took terrible pictures of flowers, coffee cups, and skylines. Eventually her pictures got better. She taught herself how to shoot in manual and conquer complicated editing software programs.
One day Mitchell asked her “would you ever consider shooting a wedding?” Lauren laughed loudly and sarcastically. The next morning a friend texted “I know you’ve never shot a wedding before, but would you consider shooting mine?” The universe had spoken and Lauren was up all night after that first wedding scheming of ways she could do this awesome gig full time. With his natural affinity for all things complex and technical, Mitchell couldn’t help but also pick up a camera and the business has basically been super fun double dates ever since!
We love this work because it lights up the creative and problem solving parts of our brains. We walk into all types of lighting scenarios, weather, and family dynamics. To say that we are experts at managing the full spectrum of wedding drunkenness is an understatement. What began as a hobby to explore a new city has become the obsession of a lifetime. It’s a dream getting to travel together and help people relive one of the happiest days in their marriage!
Don’t be shy, say hello!
If I had to whittle this magnificent woman down to one word it would be tenacious. When we first met, Lauren was tirelessly working through a tedious, male-dominated major. I quickly learned that this was to prove that those fellas had zero chance of keeping up with her. But the intimidation factor melts away the moment you meet her. She’s quick to laugh and always ready with a big hug. Lauren has accurately been described as equal parts photographer and life coach. Her unshakeable positivity and quirky nature instantly wins everyone over. The level of care she has for this work is a wonder. After a late night wedding, I’ll wake up to her beginning to edit the photos at 4am. Her gumption for life is unmatched and she is my constant source of inspiration and encouragement. If I could clone her a billion times I would, just so more people could experience her love and light.

I’ve yet to meet someone as easygoing and sweet-natured as Mitchell. You know that person in high school who is somehow excellent at everything and everybody thinks is ultra cool and nice? That’s Mitchell (although he would never admit to it). He is a true Renaissance man and the greatest bummer of his life is that there isn’t enough time to master all of his complex interests. He loves to learn and becomes so absorbed in his work, he often needs gentle reminders to eat and go to bed. If you make a pun in his presence, you’ve won a friend for life. Without hesitation, Mitchell will instantly drop everything to help anyone. I can’t imagine a more compassionate, handsome, and hilarious sidekick for this business. I’ll always love watching him chat with grandmas at the grocery store and truly, the world is brighter with Mitchell in it.
