"I never realized how important it is to actually want to spend time with your photographer until our wedding. They will be with you throughout the day, helping you stay on schedule and interacting with your family and guests. Speaking from experience, you want someone like Michaela to make you feel comfortable during a boudoir shot. You want someone like Tim who can spend time with the groomsmen as they get ready and to nudge the groom to keep him on time. You will then probably wish they were also wedding guests because they are such great people. The ratio of amazing photos to price is insane. I never thought I’d have 100+ photos from our wedding that I loved! We cannot recommend them highly enough."

Michaela and Tim were such a joy to work with, they made every moment feel so special and so exciting on the day of the wedding. They arrived and got right to work and made my husband and I feel so calm on a day with such a whirl wind of emotions. They were also really great at keeping everyone around us SUPER excited about the fact that WE JUST GOT MARRIED. They kept my husband and I smiling and laughing all day long, they also captured every single special moment and their photos are MAGIC. We are in love and can't believe how lucky we were to find Michaela and Tim, they were the PERFECT dynamic duo! They created and captured memories we will now never forget because of their art!

Michaela and Tim are dream photographers. Not only are they exceptionally talented but are also funny, kind, and have incredibly calming energy (invaluable traits during a wedding event). Our guests raved about them and said that they had so much fun interacting with them throughout the night. They added so much life to the party in a really special way. We loved all of our beautiful photos and felt that they perfectly captured the magic of both our engagement and wedding. We can't recommend them enough!
