Introducing The Covenant Sessions

The Covenant Sessions - Photographs meant to celebrate the unique relationship of a committed marriage.

Love grows.  Love changes.  Love is easy.  Love is hard.  Love is worth it.

A little over nine years ago, Mindy and I made a promise. This promise was made between the two of us, but also between us and God. Even more than a promise, it was a covenant; a sacred bond that cannot be broken. It goes far deeper than the feelings we have for each other, which ebb and flow with the daily current of life. We made a commitment to stay with, support, and love each other through thick and thin, every day from here on out.

We take this commitment seriously, and believe this covenant is meant to be celebrated. Not just ours, but every marriage covenant. Committing yourself to one other person for the rest of your life is hard, but oh man, is it good. Celebrate your marriage. Show it off to the world. Cling to your spouse, make your relationship your priority. If you have kids, teach them how to love by showing them how you love. Give the world a reason to be hopeful.

We're excited to announce The Covenant Sessions, new series we're launching this year, to coincide with our TEN year anniversary. We'll be offering sessions on select dates, in select cities around the country throughout the year. This is where we'll be, and when:

Columbus, OH - Saturday, March 19 St. Louis, MO - Saturday, March 26 Cleveland, OH - Friday, April 1 Dayton, OH - Sunday, April 17 Tampa, FL - Sunday, May 22 Portland, OR - Sunday, June 19 Denver, CO - Wednesday, June 22 Cincinnati, OH - Saturday, July 30 Detroit, MI - Sunday, August 21 Chicago, IL - Monday, August 22 Austin, TX - Coming in the fall Nashville, TN - TBD Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus - Additional Dates TBD

The Covenant Sessions are our way of celebrating the marriage relationship that we value so much. We believe the stories of couples who are in it for the long haul are beautiful, and that they're worth sharing. Couples have photos taken to celebrate their engagement, and everyone has photos taken to remember their wedding, but too often people forget to give their relationship the credit deserves after the honeymoon is over and the real work begins. We love highlighting these milestones, and we think life after the wedding deserves it's own place in the spotlight.

Celebrate your marriage. Show it off to the world.

Shoot us an email for more information about booking a session on one of these dates. Availability is extremely limited.


Best of 2013 // Engagements

2013 was a huge year for us. It may sound cliché, but you could probably define our year with one word: Travel. Geographically it was our biggest year yet. We had trips to Colorado to see our friends and do some snowboarding, a trip to Las Vegas for our annual photographer convention, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Hawaii and Mexico to shoot some gorgeous weddings, and an epic trip to Alaska for an engagement session. This job has literally taken us all over North America, and we've seen places that we never imagined we'd see. We're so thankful, and humbled that people would choose to send us to such beautiful places to take photos. With a new year upon us, it's always fun to look back at some of our favorite photos from the previous year. We've spent a few days going back through all of our work, hunting out our favorite images, but also remembering the love and celebration that we've witnessed, and seeing another year of incredible growth as artists. We had such a hard time narrowing down our favorites, so we've decided to do three posts to recap the year.

This is post one of three, our favorite images from engagement sessions last year. Stay tuned over the next few days for more to come.

Kelsey + Andrew // Olowalu Destination Wedding // Maui, Hawaii

We went to Hawaii. Whoa.

We never dreamed of the places this job would take us, and we never imagined how many great people we would meet because of what we do. Mexico, Alaska, all over the continental US, and now this? Kelsey and Andrew brought us with them to the amazing island of Maui, and we will definitely never forget the experience.

There is so much we could say about these two, about their families, and about their friends, but we honestly just want to let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy.

Neither of us had ever been to Hawaii before, so obviously we had to do some exploring and some relaxing and some adventuring.
