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.

I'd say it's pretty obvious that 2012 was amazing. Big thanks our friends our friends Jenny + Will, Jen + Jonah, Rebekah + Ben, Jeff Marsh, Phil Chester, Lauren Grove, David McClain, Tyler Hoff, Anthony Slusher, and a whole bunch of our previous clients for  referring weddings, giving advice, helping us out, and for being such good friends to us this year.

Lara + Joel // Chicago Engagement Photography

This has to go down as one of our favorite sessions ever. Lara + Joel had us come to Chicago (where Joel lives currently), to get some shots of them... well, in their natural habitat you could say. First of all, we absolutely love traveling, and Chicago is one of our favorite cities to visit. But even more than that, we love it when our engagement sessions are all about capturing our couples doing what they love to do. Anyone can take artistic looking pictures at sunset in a field, but it's another thing all together when we get to highlight individual personalities and tell a story with our images. We love shooting "you," in whatever form that means. We hope you guys enjoy these as much as we loved being there and shooting them. Can't wait to do a wedding in Chicago someday!
