All about the

Our philosophy, the promises we'll keep, the whole process, and how to know if you're an Andrew & Melanie couple.

relationships are the foundation of everything we do.

And the best way we can tell your story is by getting to know what’s meaningful to you. By the time wedding day arrives, we’ve normally spent time sharing a bottle of wine, laughing together at your engagement session, and building an authentic relationship with you. 

If we can spend every weekend photographing the weddings of people we truly care about, then life is good!

We don’t simply show up on your wedding day and take photographs; we tell your story. 

WE believe

To have a glass of wine or cocktail with you at some point...
To capture the moments you don’t even realize are happening...
To be a part of your family on the wedding day...
To meet you on the dance floor at the end of the night...
To capture photographs that display your love to future generations...
To preserve your story in a beautiful and authentic way....
To make you feel comfortable, confident, and alive… 


What you can expect:

To have your back, no matter what!

This session is a fun shoot where we get to know each other better and all your fears about being in front of the camera are put to rest. We’ve found that most people are nervous about being photographed, so this session loosens you up and lets you see how fun and natural the experience of working with us will be.

Then, when wedding day arrives you’ll feel confident and excited! The best part? A beautiful, natural collection of photographs documenting your love and life together before your big day.

We believe your legacy deserves to be more than a moment in your social media feed. Your story is one to be told, retold and preserved for generations to come.  

We believe a story is not only worth telling well but worth remembering. We’re firm believers in the power of professional, tangible prints

Most people have scratched CD’s or unreliable hard drives containing their family’s history. We ask the question: How will your children access your photographs in 10,20, 30 years? A tangible print will last and stay accessible to your children, grandchildren and beyond.

One of our favorite parts of the wedding experience is inviting you and your family to our studio for The Reveal Party. By this time, we’ve already laughed, cried and gotten close to you. Andy has probably danced with someone in your family or helped bustle your dress. This experience just ties the whole thing together!

The Reveal Party can be as intimate or lively as you choose. It’s all about sharing a drink and revealing your photographs in a celebratory way! Most of our couples use this time as an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends after the wedding day and reminisce. You can invite up to 20 guests to your Reveal Party. We provide wine, bites, nostalgia and good times.

Your favorite time of the day is dinner.

You think the best bottle of wine is an open bottle of wine.

Your refer to your pets as members of the family.

You’re excited to see all your favorite people in one place on wedding day.

You’d pick a day in the mountains over a shopping spree.

You consider a Bloody Mary a complete meal.

You dig quality over quantity. Quality people. Quality food. Quality experiences.

You appreciate technology but believe nothing beats printed photos you can hold.
