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.

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.

CLIENT: Upward Projects

One of our recent projects involved marketing and advertising photography for Upward Projects restaurant group. We did work for Postino, Windsor, Federal Pizza and Churn. Following their phenomenal success at Postino Wine Cafe, Upward Projects has opened several new concepts. Their newest concept Federal Pizza, is appropriately named for the restored 1950's First Federal Bank building designed by Al Beadle. Federal Pizza is a midcentury-meets-modern restaurant specializing in wood fired pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, and salads. They are getting rave reviews for their old school wine coolers and craft beer on tap and in bottles, all of which can be taken to go via the old bank teller drive thru. 


70's retro, edgy, funky and cool was the vision for this shoot. Working with the wait staff, who doubled as models, was a treat. They immediately got what we where going for and turned on the charisma. It was great to work with a client who wanted to push the creative envelope.
