Meet Travis, your personal storyteller

I spent the first six years of my career as a staff photojournalist for daily newspapers, so I’m trained to anticipate and capture events as they unfold.

My goal is to tell the story of your day, from the morning preparations through the dance party. I’ll look out for your details, because they’re an important part of the story. And we take great care with the formal family groups, because they’re some of the most timeless images. But as a photojournalist, my real passion is for moments. I love documenting all the emotions of the day – the joy, the laughter and even the tears.

Regardless of what kind of celebration you’re planning, I love working with couples that trust me and my approach. The most successful weddings I’ve photographed are memorable, not because of the venue or the details, but because I connected with my clients, and they trusted my vision.

pricing info
Real weddings don't fit neatly into six, eight or even 10-hour packages. Our collections don't require you to know your timeline months before your wedding.
As a documentary photographer, I love moments. And it turns out a lot of moments happen before most photographers arrive or after they leave. That's why all of our collections include up to 12 HOURS!

We'll work together to make sure I'm there for all the great moments you expect, and the ones you don't. You'll never have to worry about planning your day around the photographer's schedule.

Wedding collections start at $3,900, which includes
– two photographers (for up to 12 hours)
– high res digital images with release
– online image gallery for viewing and print ordering
