“Joannie and I are very excited to announce that we’ve been selected as recipients of The Knot Best of Weddings for 2021. 2020 was an unusual year for weddings, and to receive this award under those crazy circumstances is pretty special.

“Just Hitched” pretty much says it all!

This award represents the highest-rated wedding professionals. To be selected 12 times out of the 15 years that the award has been in existence is pretty cool! It’s a tremendous honor for us!

When someone brings a Ferrari to your wedding, you gotta take some photos by it!

We think it reflects on the great relationships we have with all of our couples. From the quality of our images, to how fun we are to work with on their wedding day. Then there’s the cool new stuff that we’ve introduced to our profession.

Wedding photography light painting is a great example. Our couples know how cool it is that they can get one created just for them. We are one of the only (if not the only) wedding photographers in the world that creates these one-of-a-kind light painted artworks.”
