1. Introduction: What's your story?

We're Robyn and Jacob, a husband and wife team who fell in love and then found photography. From the early stages of our marriage, a camera was always nearby. Now our photography reflects who we are two quiet souls seeking to capture moments that mean the most.

3. How would you describe your photography style?

We have a deep love for journalistic photography and work very hard to be more of a fly on the wall, following each scene as it unfolds documenting everything as if it were a scene from a movie.

There is nothing more we love than photographing moments as they happen but it is deeply important to us that we also keep an eye on the color palettes and composition to tell a true and beautiful story of the moment. The raw honest ones that illuminate your connection to the people closest to you. That is the cornerstone of our approach to photography. It is the lens through which we document your wedding. Following the narrative as it unfolds.
