~ Events are in my blood. I grew up in a family-owned catering business and planned events at Georgetown University before I ever picked up a camera. 
~ If I see a dog, I consider it to be a good day. 
~ I spent the first part of the pandemic befriending the squirrels in our backyard. I've given them names. 
~ My idea of a perfect evening is a warm blanket, a good book and a glass of whiskey. 
~ I'm a meticulous notetaker. I have dozens of notebooks with funny sayings on the covers. A current favorite is "F*cking Brilliant Ideas." 
~ Jesse and I met on spring break in the Bahamas. He offered to buy me a drink. It was an all-inclusive resort.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Based in Boulder, Colorado. Travel to most places in Colorado is included in our packages.

My husband, Jesse, and I have photographed over 200 weddings since 2008.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

We’re not big on taking standard, posey photos. We specialize in nontraditional wedding photography and everything you see on our website is real. Real weddings. Real couples. Real emotion. Our goal isn’t to simply take pretty pictures, but to create works of art that are unique to you and worthy of hanging above your mantlepiece. We limit our calendar to 20 weddings per year so we can pour every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears into each wedding.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Our most popular wedding package is $5,800 and includes a full day of coverage (typically 10-12 hours, but we don't limit time), two photographers, a password-protected online gallery, high-res images with the rights to print, and a photo album.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

No physical studio as of yet, but we have dozens of convenient meeting places all around the metro Denver area. Zoom works too.

Jesse and Moira did an amazing job shooting my friend’s wedding five years ago thus once I became engaged booking them for my wedding was my first step in wedding planning. This dynamic duo knocked it out of the park on our wedding day. They totally captured the essence of me and my fiancé and the overall vibe of our wedding. They were both very easy to work with and accommodated all our special requests (for us this included taking pics at Taco Bell). Our wedding took place in downtown Denver, and they were able to find unique and beautiful features of the urban landscape. We along with our Read More friends and family are obsessed with our pictures!

Choosing Jesse and Moira as our photographers was probably one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They are somehow both phenomenally talented and very chill: the perfect combo. I won’t linger on their artistic talent — their work speaks for itself — but I will say that they were 100% ALL IN for our wedding.

We were married up in the mountains in late May, and although we always knew the weather might be tricky, we weren’t quite expecting the foot of snow that ended up falling the day before. In the days leading up to the wedding, Moira and Jesse bought snow chains for their car, Read More headed up to the mountains a day early to make sure they were close to our venue, and promised us they would WALK to our wedding if they had to (!!). And of course, our photos are literally The. Best. They captured our day more fully and authentically than I could have imagined. There’s not much more to say than that!

(Okay, one last note: We also did an engagement session/“alt session” with them the year before our wedding, where we went on a ridge hike up near 13,000 feet and generally had a fabulous time — and then also received the coolest, most genuine hiking photos that we’ll ever have. So I definitely recommend that as well — they have some pretty fantastic adventure ideas.)

I cannot & I mean cannot express how much we absolutely loved working with Moira and Jesse! They are so talented & make such an amazing team. We first met them at my sisters wedding in DC & I knew from there I had to have them for my wedding in Montana. Their planning, attention to detial & down to earth attitude isnt something that is easy to find. They definitely deserve an award for putting up with our wild & crazy group. We will never be able to thank them enough. I truly hope our paths cross again someday. Hey, maybe someday you guys can join us for some "slap the cooler" drinks! Haha. Read More Thanks again for everything Moira & Jesse!!
