TIM O'SHEA ran away at the age of 13, with his Kodak, to photograph Manhattan. 

A gray January day in New York City gave me the opportunity to snap a photo of Battery Park that started it all. There is something about the lines, the colors, the clouds, the snow, the cold New Yorkers pulling their coat collars across their faces to fight off the icy Atlantic breeze; it's that moment captured that has the power to take me back every time. Over the years that fascination with capturing visceral memories and moments on film (and digital, of course) has evolved into a calling, a career and a business that I share with my incredible wife. 

My own wedding day went by in a blur of smiles, laughing, crying (the good kind), good friends and loved ones. So many memories I wanted to freeze and keep that would take me back. Those moments that meant the world to me, because on that day I married my best friend. That’s why Michaela and I love what we do, we get to share in those priceless moments with you while capturing a day you will want to remember forever. Your wedding day will be a happy whirlwind (trust me), so you can relax knowing that we’re there documenting your special day. 

Before starting this business with Michaela, I ran some of the top restaurants and wine bars in Denver. The combination of operations and hospitality, and the core principles behind it, helped mold the foundation of our company. I became a certified sommelier about 10 years ago, and continue to explore our world through wine and photography. Studying wine has taught me more about geography, agriculture, and politics than any other class I have ever taken. Studying photography has helped me unearth a creative passion I always yearned to express it just took a few years to realize it. And all that fluffy stuff Michaela says about weddings, I feel the same way. I even tear up too... shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.

In case you were wondering: 
-Michaela tells me I am a very patient tennis coach.
-Weekly, I get texts from friends asking for wine pairings to their dinner that night.
-I sing in the car when I am driving by myself…. Loudly. No, really loud.  
-Living on the coast again feels like home. 
-I was born in Cork, yup, Irish.  
-Booking travel online is my jam, and I would do it competitively if I could. 
-The love of my life keeps me full of passion for all things creative, and I couldn't do any of this without her.
