We photograph your day it unfolds – truthfully, without boundaries or limits; arriving when you need us to, and leaving once your story is told. In other words, this means no rigid set start or finish time – because you shouldn’t have to worry about how much time you booked us for; your focus should be on the wedding, not your watch.  Most of the day, we photograph in a documentary style; a bit like a fly on the wall because weddings should be remembered for what they were – a joyous celebration, and one of the best days of your lives – not as a big photo session.

      We’re there to capture the fleeting moments and lucid memories. The joy in your partner’s eyes. The emotion of your families. The details you’ve spent all this time planning. When you look back on your photos, you’ll begin to relive it: hearing those sweet whispers in your ear, feeling the silk of your dress between your fingers, and seeing the joy on their face, all over again.

      We aim to photograph your day truthfully – without boundaries or limits. We’ll show up when you need us to, and leave once your story is told. We don’t want you to worry about our schedule, we just want to be there for you.  We photograph most of the day in a documentary style – careful not to bring too big of our own footprint on the natural flow of your wedding.  We want you to remember your wedding, not a giant photoshoot.  We do take great care to photograph your friends and families as well – these are the important portraits that will ultimately stand the test of time and be passed on to the next generation to enjoy and relive    

      We met on Craigslist. Let’s tease that out a little, shall we? Way back in ’08 Justyna was looking for photo contributors for a creative project she was managing. Joel came across her ad and inquired. What followed were years of artistic collaboration, friendship, exploration, and appreciation for each other. This turned to courtship, romance, a beautiful wedding, and a beautiful marriage. With an education in art history, a previous career in fashion modeling, a family business in portrait photography, and a mutual love of French decadence, perfectly diffused light, old hardcover books, exotic travel, and heady perfumes, we compress all of it – all of it – into our careers as wedding photographers. We truly believe that life is punctuated by chapters, paragraphs, books, and volumes. A wedding is the beginning – and end – of a volume. There will seldom be in life a time when so much love will fill a room. We know how wonderful – and important – it is to try and capture not just these fleeting moments, but also the feeling…We want to preserve for you these fondest memories that you will carry with you forever. This is what we’re about. Our raison d’être. Image by Candice Zugich – The Blissful Maven

      KIND WORDS

      “Dearest Joel and Justyna,

      I have been anxiously waiting for Lenny to get home all day so we could watch this slide show and now we can’t stop watching it. We’re truly at a loss for words.

      We are brought to tears and transported back to the immense amount of happiness and love we felt our entire day. The music you picked to narrate this photo slide show could not be more perfect. It’s almost as if the song was made for this slide show it fits the emotion of our day so well. Thank you for this beautiful gift. You two are incredible artists and these photos are absolutely breathtaking. You have exceeded our expectations in every way. We are so in love with what we see and so grateful to you both for paying such close attention to every detail and capturing it all so beautifully.

      It was an honor to work with you both. We could not have picked a more classy and talented pair to photograph our most special day.

      Thank you both so much, from the bottom of our hearts.”

      ~Amanda & Lenny

      Oh my gosh, I'm overwhelmed!! Thank you SO MUCH for the beautiful photos! Knowing what you were working with on the day, I'm not sure how you managed to find such gorgeous light. A friend of mine said that some of the photos look like a Rembrandt painting. She also said, "Lauren you chose the BEST photographers! Best wedding photos ever. EVERRRRRRR." Ha, I agree! I can't wait to spend more time looking through them all with Jake, and yes - will download.

      Thank you for photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives! And for being so easy & pleasant to work with on such a special day for us.

      Thank you again,
      Lauren (& Jake)

      I'm not someone who likes to express myself in words, actions and touch are my love language. If you two were a closer distance, I'd come over and give you both the biggest of hugs and refuse to let go. I'd clean your house, walk (and play with) Bort, cook you breakfast, lunch, and dinner and let you have the day for yourselves. This email to me simply isn't enough. Those two days meant everything to me and it was captured and presented in an extraordinary fashion.

      Thanks again you two for all of your work, artistic vision, professionalism, ease to work with, and so much more! We also hope our paths will cross in the future.

      xoxo

      Carisma (& Mark)
