If we aren't at a wedding, we're probably having a drink and watching Star Wars.

""Beautiful, vibrant, and exactly what we wanted!"

"Badass amazing team!"

Sarah & Monty

The image quality is amazing.
They embrace light and color in my favorite ways. Elyssa and John were so easy-going and they encouraged me with my wildest ideas.

Dale & Jake

Our pictures turned out amazing - my husband and I kept crying every time we looked at them. We can't recommend them enough, both for the amazing photography and for how easy they were to work with.

Shu & James

Not only does she deliver on her photos, Elyssa is extremely organized and has her process well defined... When I felt like I was drowning in wedding prep, this process and efficiency really made all the difference.

Carly & Nick

They are so much fun to work with, & produce some truly breathtaking work. We recommend them a million times over!

Long story short, just before our wedding, I had brain surgery (literally), and realized that I should be doing something that brought me joy. So we started making wedding photos in Raleigh and haven't looked back...

I (Elyssa) had come to law school from a photo-journalism background and John was an incredibly talented hobbyist. We clicked. (pun SO intended)

I'm the one in the glasses, your friendly neighborhood wedding photographer in Raleigh!! And with me is my husband John. We met in law school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and bonded over a shared interest in photography (among lots of other geeky things).

Kivus & Camera

"I cry tears of joy every time I look at our photos! Our family dog Gus also gives 5 out of 5 paws!"

"Book them now, you won’t regret it!!"
