We are big into memory-making. From creating our own family traditions to having all kinds of adventures (whether locally or far from home), we create memories with great intention. That's probably why photographs are so important to us and our couples. We believe everyone should have amazing photos that spark joyful memories!
hello, we're so happy you're here!
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."
- Dr. Suess
Moments become memories. Memories become stories. And stories become legacies. Photographs preserve legacies, and legacy is why we do what we do.
Eighty years from now, we want to look back and see a life full of impactful, legendary moments. We want to focus on living IN those moments NOW, so we can look back and see them for the joy they brought. We want to open every photo album in our home with our daughter
(she's big into quality time and fun memories herself at just 5 years old) and tell her the stories behind each picture. The way we each felt in that moment should be completely genuine and tangible, even years later, so we can share them with our sweet babies and leave a legacy of unbridled joy. Because photographs will always remind us of a feeling, and we want those feelings to be good ones. For our family, and for yours.
Because legacy is important to us, we feel strongly that it should matter in capturing memories for our couples too.
We believe the moments behind the photographs are what REALLY matter. Beautiful memories make beautiful pictures, right? Here's how we do that. We are uniquely gifted at making our couples feel relaxed on their wedding day, because we truly are an amazing team.
We know what it's like to struggle to RELAX in the midst of chaos (um...we've got kids...). We know what it's like to long for perfect moments and perfect pictures to look back on. We KNOW how wedding days can be full of major pressure because of that. But we also know how to relieve that pressure. In fact, that's our thing. Get us behind the camera and you'll not only have great pictures, but the story behind them will be worth remembering.
See what we have to say about each other!
"Both of you provided such a calming presence during a pretty stressful pre-wedding period...we are so glad ya'll were our photographers."
Adam, told by Meagan
Adam is my hero. Not only is he a kind, patient husband and father, but also a warrior spider killer and run-away-Labrador chaser. I think the man could make me laugh at just about anything he says--I know he's trying to think of something witty when his blue eyes start twinkling and his dimple begins to show. He often asks me, "So what do you want for dinner?" rather than, "What's for dinner?" because he has got some mad cooking skills. He'll try to tell you it's only because he likes to eat that he likes to cook, but you'll find he enjoys sharing the experience with other people just as much.
You can find him in the kitchen grating ginger, outside with his meat smoker (home brew in hand), or if you can't find him cooking, you should hit the trails. Hobbes (that big furry brown dog I've mentioned) might be jaunting out in front of him, tail bobbing happily as he looks back over his shoulder for his beloved master. Adam also really loves games. He gets giddy when UPS drops off a package containing yet another tabletop board game that I will inevitably learn to love, or when the Olympics are back on TV. You won't see him out much during the month of March (as in, does he even exist?!) and when he gets a chance to go to a PSU football game with his dad I can never say no. Adam talks about teaching our kids to stargaze and dreams of someday having an annual family Star Wars marathon. He loves well, laughs often, and has my heart.
Meagan, told by Adam
While it wasn't love at first sight, having the same group of friends allowed us to get to know one another and spend time together. One day, I had a realization: "Dang, Meagan is really pretty. And she treats everyone so nice...I've never heard anyone say anything bad about her. She's smart, funny, has her head on straight, and seems like she knows what she wants out of life. And she's pretty.
A nurturer to the core, Meagan's heart is full when she cares for things. She loves her children passionately and takes great pride in her gardens, which are used to feed the family throughout the summer and early fall. When she's not laughing at my jokes - which is seriously almost all the time, it makes me feel good about myself - she's probably laughing at our kids who are an endless source of amusement to us. In her spare time, Meagan can be found curling up with a good book and a mug of hot tea (or, depending on her mood, a glass of wine), taking afternoon walks with her family, and baking delicious treats. Meagan also loves creating art, DIY projects, and cheese making. I love watching the joy and excitement pouring out of her when she's doing these things. And she's really pretty.
I really admire Meagan's talents and abilities. I mean, she earned two degrees at Penn State in one less semester than it took me to get one. She's organized, driven, artistic, and so very compassionate. She's a great friend who will support you wholeheartedly and will always greet you with a warm smile.
