HELLO!

THIS IS US

We are a husband/wife team who love having the ability to work in such a rewarding field like photography. We have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to so many different places to tell the stories of the people we work with. From destination weddings to local family farm family sessions, every story has been unique and the people we have worked have been SO amazing to work with.

While we do provide digital files, our end goal is not to send off the digital files and be done. How many of us can relate to having a desire to print our digital files only to find ourselves years later still thinking that we’d like to print those pictures? On top of the digital images, we provide a host of products to help further preserve your story. From albums to image boxes to large wall art images, we want to be a full service photographer for you and provide a complete experience.

We work closely with you, get to know you and your story so that when we deliver the final product, your images can be cherished by you and those you love for generations to come!


Steffen’s passion for photography and capturing the scenes around you are amazing. My husband, myself, all our friends and family, and even strangers said our pictures were breathtaking! He jumped right into new surroundings and was able to capture the love so naturally. We cannot imagine having used someone else and would recommend him to anyone getting married. His laid back nature also helps ease any stress or worry, which is what every couple needs during wedding time! Trust me, you will not be disappointed!  -Brianne & Daniel

 
 

Wedding + Engagement Photos

Weddings are such an incredible time of a person’s life. This is the day that you and your fiance become one. A day that you’ve been dreaming about all your life. A day that is going to be one of the most special days in your life. Because of how special the day is, the pictures are so important. After the vows have been said, the last dance danced, and the doors to the venue shut, all that remains are the pictures. Pictures that tell the story of your wedding day and the love that you two have for one another. Pictures that will be cherished for generations to come. We absolutely love having the opportunity to work in the wedding industry. It’s a huge honor to be trusted with such a responsibility as photographing the special moments of the day. We would love to meet with you and your fiance to talk about your big day. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page or click the Contact link at the top of the page to get in touch with us!

LIFESTYLE PORTRAIT SESSIONS

What is a lifestyle portrait session? It’s frequently asked. Ultimately, it’s a session where we capture life on camera. Similar to the image above this text. After a lot of consideration, we have decided to transition our portrait sessions into lifestyle sessions rather than the traditional posed sessions. Whether it’s a couple’s session, a family session, or senior session, lifestyle portrait sessions are all about preserving the moments of today. It’s about capturing your personality and most importantly, telling your story. We are visual story-tellers, and when we thought about our portrait session, the traditional posed pictures just didn’t work as telling a story. A family playing together, a couple cuddled on the couch with their pet, or a senior showing off their personality, this is what lifestyle pictures are all about. Send us a message today and let’s tell your story!
