Wedding photographer for couples who write their own rules

For the nerdy couples who never fit into a traditional world

You're actively searching for a photographer who gets your vision of an elopement, or small wedding with only your close family + friends. 

You found me, I'm your photographer!!

that's us!

The best wedding is one where you and your human are at the center of everything—surrounded by the people you love the most, doing the things you love the most. It’s a day (or days!) that encourages all of your quirks, ideas, and must-haves without an ounce of guilt, shame, or performance. 

Your day—in its entirety—should reflect the best of who you two are together. And the photos of your day should do the same.

Oh, and one more thing! You deserve a photographer who takes the time to understand your dynamic, sees you for who you are, and captures it all on camera in a timeless, one-of-a-kind way. (Hint: It’s me.)

Finally—
A Day All About You

No seriously, get selfish!

GET IN TOUCH!

Does Any Of This Ring True?

You don’t want to worry about performing or perfection on your special day

You want images that will live seamlessly on your walls (and in your heart) forever 

Getting married in nature sounds like a dream come true

You want to say “I do” without all the rules

Cool! You’re my kind of couple.

Let's make this official!

 “Jamie and Mark are weird, but don’t worry, it’s the cool kind of weird. The weird that will make you feel comfortable in any situation. Fair warning, you may fall in love with them.”

“YOU MAY FALL IN 
LOVE WITH THEM”

My fiancé and I can’t speak highly enough of Jamie & Mark. So sweet, extremely prompt, and so talented. They went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations. Love Love Love! 😻

“LOVE LOVE LOVE!! 😻”

Being a wedding videographer, Jamie and Mark are the best photographers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only did they make everyone feel very comfortable and at ease, but they were also willing to help me get the shots I needed/wanted!

A straight-shooter who some affectionately refer to as weird, quirky, and incredibly energetic. I’m *surprisingly* an introvert who loves nothing more than spending hours upon hours exploring the outdoors solo, with my couples, or with my husband Mark + son Mercer.

Speaking of Mark—I met him while traveling to New England and immediately fell in love with both his Boston accent and the region he called home. That’s why you’ll find me splitting my time between the Midwest and New England (two totally underrated places to get married). 

I know how overwhelming it can feel inviting a stranger to your intimate day and attempting to act “normal” while they photograph the whole thing. But one promise I’m completely unafraid to make is this—3 minutes into your session you’ll forget we haven’t been friends for life because you’ll be too busy laughing your ass off.  

And if you happen to care, I’m a die-hard fan of LoTR, carbs, and staying in sans pants.

A Little More Love + Affection

Fun fact: Your wedding can be anything you want it to be. So please, erase any preconceived ideas about what you “should do,” and let’s figure out what feels most like you two.

What Feels Like YOU?

Because that’s what we’re doing

  • Saying “I do” in an old converted post office while the ghosts of decades-old love letters swirl around you
  • Climbing up a mountain with hiking boots on your feet and your fancy attire packed away until you reach the peak
  • Going on a winery tour and slowly sipping your way through reds, whites, and rosés (and probably a few cheese boards)
  • Gathering your closest family and friends for an intimate backyard ceremony followed by a classic picnic and an early bedtime 
  • Sharing your first kiss as an officially married couple on the edge of a pier while the sun slips below the horizon before running off for some fresh clam chowder

Or maybe...

it’s something entirely different. Whatever it is, if it’s a reflection of your love, I can’t wait to capture it.

Maybe it’s…

And I’ll Take These Off Your Plate Too

Because planning + prep are two of my favorite things and acts of service is my love language

  • Give you top-tier vendor recommendations to complete your day (florals, DJ, videographer, HMUA, venues, food recs, etc.)
  • Curate a customized location guide so you can say “I do” in a beautiful place
  • Craft a planning guide so your prep feels less stressed and more blessed
  • Offer timeline assistance to keep you and your people on track the day of 
  • Make you a style guide to get your ideas flowing about what to wear and where to find it
  • TBH, if you ask for help, I’ll find a way to make it happen 

Beyond taking incredible photos of your best day yet, I’ll also:

For your big day

3 Wishes I’d Grant

  1. A sore belly and cheeks from endless laughter
  2. A 0/10 stress level 
  3. To be surrounded by nature and the people you hold close

  • Weddings where the focus is on you and your forever BFF having the time of your lives and celebrating this life you’ve built together
  • Small, intimate gatherings where you’re surrounded by your favorite people and no one else
  • Ditching tradition and opting for a unique celebration—whether that’s on a mountainside, in your backyard, or inside of a historic building (PS: I love a themed wedding—think, 1920s dark & moody)
  • Intentionally choosing the people you share your day with and not feeling guilty about who you don’t invite 
  • Documenting your day in a genuine way with minimal interjection, while ensuring you and your people look incredible

  • Pressure to perform, invite, and entertain all for the sake of someone else’s feelings
  • Big weddings where you don’t have time to pause and enjoy your day because you’re too busy saying “hi” to people you barely know
  • Traditional church weddings (sorry not sorry)
  • Inviting people to be part of your wedding party out of obligation (that shit gets awko taco real quick)
  • Awkward posing and forced affection for the sake of a photo
