For lovers who march to the beat of their own drum

husband + wife photography team

 

Hey! We’re Matt + Jess (nice to meet you)!

Throughout our lives we’ve always felt the need to express ourselves creatively and consider ourselves to be hopeless romantics. Our need to create and our love of love has led us to where we are now; a husband and wife photography duo documenting weddings and elopements for couples who like to live life off of the beaten path - just like us.

We were so inspired and blessed with the photography at our own wedding that we decided we wanted to provide others with that same experience and those same feelings.

So, welcome! We look forward to working with you and documenting memories that you will love and cherish.

a few fun facts about him…

  • I like potato chips slightly stale. Take a fresh bag, open it, roll it loosely closed, then let it hang out in the cupboard for a day or two. Perfect!

  • Music is a huge passion of mine and I've been playing in bands since I was 16.

  • I've got big feet, but I don't like clunky shoes that make them look bigger. The irony is that I practically live in my Dr. Martens.

  • I am an avid reader, and can easily go through 4 books in a week.

  • For everyone who keeps asking me about how my beard so big, I don’t really know, I just let it out at night to hunt for its own food.


 

…and a few about her!

  • I didn’t speak English until about the first grade! As a daughter of Polish + Italian immigrants I spent many summers in Europe. I lost my fluency in Italian but can still chat up a storm in Polish.

  • I’m an extremely sentimental individual + a hoarder of memories. If our apartment was on fire the first thing I’d grab (other than our pets) is all our photo albums.

  • Despite being nearly 30 years old, you’ll still catch me throwing down in the pit with the best of them. I’ve always been a bit of a rebel at heart + nothing makes me feel more alive than a bit of back + forth with some big ol' dudes at a hardcore show.

  • I have a horrible peanut butter addiction + will even go as far as melting it as a topping for my PB + Oreo Ben & Jerry's or spread it on the bottom of my cereal bowl. Yes I know that all sounds gross but trust me, you could be living your best life too! (Try it!!!)

  • How can you tell if someone is vegan? Don’t worry they’ll tell you! (Hi, yeah-- I’m vegan)

Our Mission

We believe that love and marriage should be an authentic celebration and representation of you as a couple, and we take that same approach when documenting these moments for you. In an age of trends and cookie cutter aesthetics we believe that you should always do you.

Your big day is your day -  the rest of us are just there to bear witness to you and your love.

As introverted extroverts, our personalities shine once our cameras are in hand. We take a documentary approach to our photography to capture the most authentic moments as they happen.
