MEET THE TWO CRAZY KIDS BEHIND THE LENS.

Drink coffee, chase moments, tell stories. Repeat.

THE PEEPS

…a husband and wife team who are crazy about each other, best friends, passionate followers of Christ, lovers of all things coffee, history buffs, wannabe travelers – who got our first dose of the awesomeness that is photography back in 2007. We didn’t know photography was on the horizon, but when it hit, man… it hit us both pretty hard and we were hooked. We could never have guessed where this journey would take us. But, that’s the cool thing about adventures  The BEST part of this adventure? Navigating it together, for sure. It may sound sappy, but we are best friends who spend every day together, and for us, it just works. Way back before photography, we had separate careers, separate schedules and it just wasn’t any fun. This is way better!

We love to have fun. In fact, it’s going to be a requirement that you do, too. Heck, you’re probably going to be entertained just watching us taking your pictures. Just wait, you’ll see – you never know what crazy position we’ll need to hit in order to get the right shot. We think great things can be accomplished through good old fashioned happiness. We actually have a pretty great track record for the amounts of laughing and smiling that take place at our sessions. And don’t even think you can hide your fake smiles, we’ll call those out. Ruthlessly.

Moment driven photography is what we’re about. An authentic image, whether sweet or silly, happy or sad, is going to stir something in you every time you see it. And THAT is what we’re ultimately hoping for the opportunity to provide you. Real images, stirring images, beautiful images.

Blessings,

MIKE + JULIE

Meet Mike

Hey there! I’m Mike… the pizza demolishing half of this husband + wife team. A team really is what we are and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Having spent several years on opposite work schedules, it was a blessing to be able to start this adventure with my best friend. And what better person to be giving new grooms marriage advice than a guy who works with his wife and spends every hour of every… single… day… with her!

I am a bullet point kind of guy so here it goes!

Me:
- Loves God
- Loves eating
- Enjoys sipping on a good whiskey
- Likes to attend wedding industry networking events mainly for the free food
- #vivalapizza

Meet Julie

Hi! My name is Julie and I'm the veggie eating, ballet dancing half of this dynamic duo. I started life as a ballet teacher, well… school teacher turned ballet teacher and discovered photography in 2007. I really love to organize things (Mike is over on his side of the office emphatically shaking his head YES right now). While I do love a good organizing spree, what really makes me jump out of bed each morning is seeing how God is using us, our lives, our marriage, and even our business, to impact this world. I am deeply in love with that handsome man of mine. I can't BELIEVE I got so lucky. Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. About me. Hmmm... I love photographing faces, up close and personal. 9 times out of 10, I think kids are more interesting than grown-ups. I fall asleep in the car - a lot. I have a teensy bit of an introvert streak.

Oh yeah! #vivalaveggies
