My wonderful husband Matt and I have been love birds since 2007 and it’s the absolute BEST! He grew up in western New York, I grew up in the Chicago ‘burbs, and of all places, we met in Kansas after each moving there for to start our careers post college. I’m a former 7th grade English teacher, but in 2014 I left the education world behind to make photography my main priority. I’m the main photographer around here and Matt is my go-to second photographer at weddings (he also does a lot of the behind the scenes boring stuff like taxes and junk). He has his own full time job selling airplanes, so I kind of forced him into photography, but he’s amazing at it! Plus, getting to work alongside one another is just so much fun!

When we’re not working, you can probably find us entertaining our two crazy boys, watching The Office or New Girl, snuggling our elderly dog (Carl), hiking at a state park, biking a local trail, snowboarding/skiing, planning our next domestic or international trip, walking along Lake Michigan, hitting up a Milwaukee Brewery, or searching for the best Thai food in town!

we're so glad you stopped by!

We're self-proclaimed adventurers, foodies, lovers of state & national parks and we’re HUGE believers of marriage! one of the reasons that we adore photographing weddings is Getting a front row seat of a love story entering into the covenant of marriage. It is such a humbling and beautiful experience!

all our love,

Jackie + Matt
