Our love story isn't conventionally romantic. It involved meeting in the hardware department (shoutout Sears Eau Claire), and lots of Taco Bell. The little things that mattered to us wouldn't catch your eye on a Pinterest board.
Before our wedding we were both still students, working full-time. Post wedding we fell in love with the way we found ourselves captured in photos, and wanted to create in the same fashion. We knew what moments would be missed terribly if you couldn't look back at them, and how important keeping them close was. Love stories became our bread and butter.
We aren't strangers to foggy memories. Having people close to us lose memories as time passes has greatly impacted why we do what we do. We want to hold onto our own story for as long as we can. To be honest, we've come face to face with the possibility that one day we might not remember what is unforgettable right now. One day our photos may act as the last standing memories we have, and we don't take that lightly. When it comes to taking photos, we know that we're capturing what could be your first family heirloom.
We want to remember the look in each other's eye, the way we held one another, what made us light up-especially on a day like our wedding day. We know that like us, you want to see your person and step in to these moments to see them the way you saw them 10, 20, 50 years down the road. Your wedding photos are puzzle pieces of your story. Let's preserve them forever.
Skyler is a sucker for long drives, spending the day thrifting, tequila shots, and sharing stories. Vhan loves picking up new instruments, trail running, and jack and coke.
We met over a mutual love of music that makes us feel like angsty teenagers, and food that leaves grease stains on the bag in came in. We love adventures in national parks that end with hiking under a star filled sky, and late night pizza in our car just as much as a lazy day at home on our couch.
More than anything we live for moments with our people, and of course of circus of dogs.
We're inspired by the everyday. We've been lucky enough to travel near and far, but there's something about the little things we've experienced here at home that bring us back every time. We love the way our home pools with light if you're in the right spot at the right time, or the way I can close my eyes and imagine the front of my grandparent's home-and know it looks the same. These little corners hold so much feeling and meaning.
From the first email where we get to hear about you and your love, we are in your corner! When you ask a photographer to step into your lives for a day, your'e asking them to preserve a moment in time for you. On your wedding day, your people are our people. The things you've been dreaming for, planning for, putting your blood, sweat, and tears into are what we live for. This is what we want to capture. We want to bottle these people, these memories, these feelings up for you forever. When you open your gallery we want you to step back into that moment in time all over again.
My grandma has know my grandpa was "the one" since the fourth grade. My mom knew my dad was the man she'd marry since she spotted him for the first time hanging out with her brother in church. Vhan claims that from the moment we met he knew I was it.
The stories are some of the most powerful I've been told, and I want to keep them with us forever.
