Wefell in love with film all over again while photographing a Saint Paul wedding in November of 2009.

The look and feel of photographs we create using film is the perfect pairing with the images we capture and stories we tell on a wedding day. And we want the best possible work that we can produce for our couples. Film photographs are timeless and romantic. We fall in love looking at wedding images of our parents & grandparents. Their pictures have stood the test of time. That’s the type of family heirloom & investment we want to create for our couples.

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” - Maya Angelou

What it came down to for us is absolutely loving what we’re doing. Loving the process. We wanted the medium which we capture your once-in-a-lifetime moments on to be equally as special.

Photographing with film causes us to slow down and truly be present. We are more discerning and intentional with every single image we create. As a result, we are completely connected and in the moment with you. This makes us feel and experience the artistry behind photography — something that is so easily overlooked with how easy it is to take thousands of digital images. Just like a quality piece of handmade furniture, or the perfect piece of pottery, we have fallen in love with the process and it has become a major part of who we are as artists.

The best part? Our clients fall in love with the warmth & soft romantic feeling of their images. You can expect a mix of both film & digital photography on your wedding day. We haven’t eliminated our digital cameras from our camera bag and use them the most when your dance floor is out of control and we want to show you as many smiling faces as we can!

What does this mix between film & digital photography mean for our couples & clients? It means that you are investing in more than just two full-time photographers. We know that we are right where we are supposed to be. Creating a beautiful piece of art on someone’s wedding day that they will love as much as we loved creating it. For us, that’s one of the best feelings on Earth.
