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 laughing together at your engagement session, and building an authentic relationship.  We'll meet again before your wedding to go over your family in detail and learn what's truly important to YOU.

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

WE believe

To help you feel comfortable and confident...

You'll never feel posed or awkward...

To get you to cocktail hour...

Your photos will grow in value for the REST of your life...

To capture moments you don't even realize are happening...

You'll experience your day and not feel like you're in a photoshoot....

To preserve your story in a beautiful and authentic way… 

Our promises to you

What you can expect:

To have your back, no matter what!

This is a fun, outdoor shoot where we get to know each other better and all your fears about being in front of the camera are set at ease.

Most couples tell us they're nervous about being photographed.  So, during this relaxed session you'll see how fun and natural the experience of working with us will be.

 This way, when wedding day arrives you’ll know exactly what to expect and can focus on having fun. 

We Got You!

Nervous about being photographed?

Engagement Sessions

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.  
This is why we offer the finest quality fine-art prints and albums. 

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 always be accessible to your children, grandchildren and beyond.

4-5 weeks after wedding day, your photos will be ready.

 This is our favorite parts of the wedding experience! By this time we’ve laughed and cried with you; we’ve been with you through some of the most exciting and emotional moments of your life. Sharing your photographs and memories is so much fun.

Reveals are done via zoom and we encourage you to invite family and friends to join.  We'll have a custom slideshow to tell the story of your day, and then walk you through the gallery.
