My wife and I have been on the opposite side of the camera since 2003 and shoot an average of 25 to 30 weddings annually. We love documenting the beginning of your journey together and from our own experience, realize the gravity of the moment. We are thrilled to be there throughout life's travels as well which might include additions to, significant transitions or simply celebrations of times together with friends and family. Our style focuses most on the candid and photojournalistic aspect of photography, capturing the true feelings of every moment and layering the story of the day. We understand that the day and time is yours to remember and want the photographs that will hang on your walls to reflect the uniqueness of your own personalities.
I was born and raised in Grand Rapids MI and my lovely wife is from the beautiful country of Poland. She grew up in the capital city of Warsaw and lived in Italy for two years before coming to the states. We met through a mutual friend in 1994 at her graduation open house , got married in 2001 and have been enjoying life ever since! As well as being photographers, we have a small resale business where we are constantly on the hunt for the character, visual textures, colors and life wear of everything vintage and antique. We love traveling to experience new places, people, cultures, traditions and foods throughout the world. When we have free time we love to go camping all around our beautiful state and country. We like to fish, even though we are not very good at it... We have a small yard where we built a garden area that we are in constantly from the early spring through the late fall. We also enjoy hiking, day road trips to almost anywhere, checking out local restaurants, orchards and farms and spending time with our two animated Boxer dogs Rocky and Apollo. We hope this gives you a glimpse of who we are and we look forward to capturing your moments and celebrations together with friends and family.

We are big on traditions every year! We love going out to the farm to get our turkey for Thanksgiving and ham for Easter, cutting down our Christmas Tree in Rockford (Cutting the Tree YouTube Video), Memorial Day and 4th of July BBQ's and simply celebrating all the holidays with family and great homemade food!
