Photography has been in Heather’s bones for as long as she can remember. When she was young, she constantly picked up her dad’s camera and photographed anything she could. On her 13th birthday, she purchased her own camera with all the money she had. Photographing her first wedding at age 15, she began to develop an increasing passion for capturing people and emotion. Jake has always been involved in music and art in some way. So, when he entered the scene years ago, it came as no surprise when he became eager to learn everything he could about photography.
Since then, we have been growing together, traveling, and photographing weddings with a collaborative approach. We specialize in natural, romantic, joyful weddings with an emphasis on details and curated storytelling. Using film as our medium effectively allows us to create images of unmatchable quality and timeless color for our clients.
Jake is a lighthearted free spirit, always ready to lend encouragement and Heather is a tenacious dreamer and lover of good conversation. Together, we share a common love for people and desire to serve those around us. Two of our greatest passions are having genuine relationships with people and making beautiful art. We wholeheartedly believe serving our clients is where those two things intersect and it could not bring us more joy!
The sweet city of Raleigh, North Carolina is home, though our affection for experiencing new things has us traveling all over the Southeast and beyond for weddings and for fun. In our free time, you can find us in local coffee shops, on an evening walk downtown, or cooking together in our kitchen with a glass of wine in-hand.
OUR CREATIVE APPROACH
Many have described our work as feeling relaxed and effortless– unposed and real.
We credit that largely in part to the creative approach we take when photographing our clients.
At the core, it is a desire to capture memories and moments, rather than poses and perfection.
On location, we are engaging behind the camera as we strive to inspire interaction and encourage moments
and emotions that are happening naturally. Our wholehearted belief is that you should sincerely
recognize your affections and memories when you look back at your wedding images in 10 years.
We combine our documentary approach with thoughtful art direction to capture not only the stunning
details, but most importantly, the genuine moments that unfold organically on your day.
