Our most treasured moments are meant to be captured, printed, and loved forever. However, when it comes to having your picture taken, you might be apprehensive and uncomfortable. If you've often balked at the idea of photoshoots or don't know how to get started, we can help.

We work hard to make our clients feel relaxed in front of the camera, giving them natural direction that doesn't feel forced or corny, leading to naturally gorgeous photos.

Over 10 years ago, we met at a photography class in college and the rest, as they say, is history. Safe to say, we're each other's strongest supporters and critics, growing and evolving together at every step.

We've been photographers for more than a decade and we love what we do. It's a privilege to form connections with so many inspiring individuals and be a part of their lives. We know that it isn't easy to trust someone to capture your special moments. Don't fret, you're in good hands.

We want to be good stewards of your special moments and memories. 

We’re Carissa & Ben 

hello there,

"We've had the absolute pleasure of working with Carissa and Ben for several occasions - from family photos, to engagement, to our destination wedding in Mexico - and each experience has been fantastic. They have an impeccable style and bring professionalism, creativity, a sense of ease, and joy to your day. I absolutely adore how they're able to capture the moments of life and bring out our personalities. Working with them is easy and full of laughs, and they help you feel and look your best while doing it."

"They saved me before my wedding day when another photographer cancelled on us and man am I so glad, our photos are a gorgeous memory for generation to come! We also just did a maternity shoot with them and once again absolutely amazing! The photos are gorgeous and they have such a great way of making me feel comfortable in front of the camera. I highly recommend their expertise and absolute genuineness. They are so patient and have such an amazing eye for landscape, sunsets, and everything in-between! Also, did I mention they're amazing people and a joy to be around?!"
