It’s a day full of our favorite things: rolling tears, double chin laughs, and the words you have spent hours piecing together so your partner knows just how much you love them — and holy smokes, it does goes by as fast as they say.
We are here to help you live in the moment. We are the ones making sure all of the emotive scenes are paused or filmed so you don't have to worry about anything other than being 100% present with your partner. Not only that, we are your advocates in pursuing the intimate wedding or elopement that YOU want and making sure you laugh and have a blast along the way!
From our very first call, we take the time to understand your relationship, the flavor and spice that makes your story special; we like to become your buddies. Anyone can just show up, click a button, and create beautiful images. But we are invested in creating images and films that feel uniquely yours and giving you an EXPERIENCE you never knew you needed.
Because your photos + video should reflect who you really are. And who's better at creating that than your friends?
We’re obsessed with documenting life’s most important moments and have an absolute blast doing it. We believe that every moment of life is a gift so helping our couples create their own wedding adventure is stemmed from that belief.
We love shooting intimate weddings and elopements where the decisions made were YOURS. Gone are the days of appeasing everyone else; we want to help couples ditch that pressure and start their marriage off with an experience that is authentic to them! And the magic of it all reflects the intention you started this journey with. We’re a perfect fit if you want to be in the moment with your partner on your wedding day (and not worried about things that you think you should be worried about).
Think of us as your advocates, your helpers, and your friends that happen to be really good with a camera! (Cause skills are important here too!)
I don’t even know where to start with Arielle and Ben! They are truly, truly amazing humans, and such talented photographers! My fiancé and I didn’t hesitate for a second to hire them for our wedding after we talked to them for the first time and looked at their work! Planning a wedding is already stressful enough, and even more so when you have to reschedule amid a pandemic (which we have had to do!). Arielle and Ben have been so supportive and flexible the whole way, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
One specific moment that continues to bring me to tears when I think about it is during a hectic moment while getting ready, Arielle paused, held my shoulder for a second, and asked, “Are you living in the moment?” Those gentle words brought me back to what was happening, my wedding! I stopped worrying about the details and how everyone was doing, and just enjoyed myself. So, when we say that Ben and Arielle are some of the kindest and most genuine people we know, it is not an exaggeration. We couldn’t have had such an amazing wedding without them, and we plan on keeping them as our photographers as we grow our family in the future!
Both Ben & Arielle have an incredible sense of adventure and are up for anything! We hiked to a remote waterfall for our engagement and through a pretty overgrown trail to some cliffs on the Oregon Coast for our wedding. Not only were they excited and up for the adventure but they were so kind to help our parents down the steepest part of the climb, fix hair, wipe tears and lipstick, etc. It made us feel so comfortable to have friends rather than strangers photographing us and we are so grateful to have them capture our special moments in life!
