"Photography so fresh you'll want to slap it."  
 
In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.  
 
We became wedding photographers because we loved each other. Four months after our wedding day, we put our two sea kayaks in the cold waters of Lubec Maine and took our first strokes towards Key West, Florida. This adventure took us over a year and half, 2500 miles, through some of the worst and best days of our lives so far and cemented our love for one another.... all in pursuing one of Dan's childhood dreams. On that trip, we realized that we wanted to be together, not trading our numbered days for a number on a paycheck. As photographers and business owners, we get to spend our time together, create art, dream big, earn a living and be in charge of our time! We dig it.

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

Portland, Maine 
We travel up to 2 hours with no travel fee.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

We have been in business since 2010 and have both photographed over 100 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Gutsy - Real - Honest - Intuitive - Quirky  
We are dependent on our couples to be themselves, confident, imperfect, goofy, brave, self-aware, and unique. Our main inspirations are Light, Emotion and Landscape. We dig weird light, bold light, dark shadows, buttery golden light and high contrast. Drawn to the emotions of the day we focus on the story being told, both the public displays as well as the private moments. We believe in the importance of location and that it is integral to the wedding and we incorporate that into the story as much as we can. While we do step in to help direct you during your portraits, we use the photo-journalistic technique during the rest of the day as it unfolds.  
Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.

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

All weddings include both Bethany and I as your photographers and the high-res files.

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

We use skype.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
