Hello – I’m Austen, I’ve been married 10 amazing years to my best friend who I’ve know since I was 12. I have 2 great dogs and lots of great friends. I love exploring! I am always trying to find something new that’s off the beaten path like a new fishing hole, or new perspective for a photograph. I really love the creativity that is in photography / cinematography. My mind never stops with ideas and trying to figure out the next shot. I love the idea of the next shot!

Hello – I’m Joel. While the serious mug shot above would suggest otherwise, I love to laugh and joke around. I’ve had more than one person, after spending any amount of time with me, say I remind them of someone. When I say, ‘Is it Brian Reagan?’ I get an almost immediate ‘Yes! That’s it!’ What can I say? The guy makes me laugh even though I’ve heard his jokes hundreds of times. Call it a Bromance. = )

I have an amazing wife of 9 years (plus I had to wait 7 -ask me about it, it’s a great story) and I can count on one hand the number of arguments we’ve had. She is my absolute everything and I don’t know what I’d do without her.

Being able to capture moments in time, memories – is why I love my job. I look forward to capturing yours.

Here is our list of professional equipment. Besides the equipment listed below, we have a variety of tripods, filters, and other accessories.

Out studio uses one of the most current and high performing wedding photography camera bodies available to date, the Canon 5D Mark IV.  We love them so much we bought two.
