WE ARE STORYTELLERS.
We are trained wedding photographers & filmmakers equipped to capture the unscripted and spontaneous. Our Photographers spend the day with you, documenting not directing. Our clients rave that their wedding photography is full of emotion and creativity. Our images are art, but the content will be your real life. And in the end, you'll have a visual narrative that captures the authentic emotions of your wedding and reveals the deep commitment behind your love.

WE LOVE INTIMACY.
As visual historians we are trained to document real moments, up close and personal, without being obtrusive. We quietly blend in to catch those key moments – fleeting glances between bride and groom or candid exchanges with family and friends – that make your day truly special.

Eyes 2 See : Fun Ideas for Valentines Day

admin

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this year it will be on a weekend! This means dinner at a restaurant just won't make the cut since you have all day to celebrate. As you are planning your valentine festivities we have a few suggestions to make this year special!

1. Start the day by being romantic and sweet.

You know your significant other better than anyone else. What would make their day? You could make breakfast in bed, have 12 roses delivered, give a massage, or write her/him a poem. Always start Valentine's Day on a great note by doing something that really speaks their love language.

2. Do something active! 

As you are finishing your breakfast in bed, make plans to bike around town, hike a mountain, paddle board, take a yoga class, or play golf together. If you are located up north where it's the dead of winter you may have to be more creative. You can go to the local rock climbing gym, take a workout class together, or go ice skating. The saying goes, those that play together, stay together!

3. Get Creative! 

If doing something active isn't your thing, there is always room for other creative options. We love the idea of taking a painting and wine class, cooking something together, or making that DIY project on your Pinterest board that you've been dreaming about.

4. Sign up for DateBox!

As you prepare for your wedding take time for a date night.  Setting good patterns in your marriage is so important for many reasons. Make a point to continue to date one another by signing up for a year of Datebox! Datebox will send you a monthly fun and creative date in the mail. It's literally a date in a box! This could be a great gift to spice up your Valentines Day and would show that you are putting a priority on spending time together as you get closer to your wedding.

5. Movies and take out!

If you both are homebodies this may be the perfect Valentines Day date for you. Order your favorite take out, get candles and set the mood with some romantic music from Spotify. Take some intentional time to talk and listen during dinner and then find a romantic comedy on Netflix. Spending some quality time together with your best friend is always a win in our book.

6. Final Thoughts!

Relationships can be complicated and weddings are stressful. Take time to keep your relationship fresh and fun so that you can cross the "I DO" finish line on the right path. We hope you have an incredible Valentine's Day!

Are you looking for a unique way to tell your story? We want to share a fun way to show off your home city or your favorite location during your engagement photographs and video. Our Engagement Safari is the best way to loosen up in front of the camera while going on a fun destination date.

Last week we shared with you why it's important to have an engagement session. Today we are excited to share a special photo/video session we offer for our adventurous brides and grooms. If you are like us you love to go on trips where your favorite memories are formed with your loved ones. Enter the "Engagement Safari," a fun filled destination shoot at the place that means the most to you both.  This is the time to share your passion for horseback riding in Kentucky or cruising the streets of New York or popping into a Memphis blues club.

We encourage you to run your toes through the San Diego sands or go sailing in the Chesapeake Bay. Whether catching a Cubs baseball game, visiting indian ruins or spending the day at a theme park your imagination will truly be the only limit to our creativity. Engagement Safari's are shot in a editorial / documentary style with fashion portraits mixed in and are a must have for any destination wedding. Whether snorkeling on a beach or taking a cooking class we always encourage you to stretch your legs and do something fun, unique and memorable for your engagement session. Here are a few favorite Engagement Safari's we have done over the past few years.
