We're so glad you're here

As time raced by, excitement turned into anxiety. The daunting task of planning a wedding proved itself to be more stressful than I thought it would be. One thing I knew I didn't have to worry about was photography because I KNEW that our photographer had us covered.

Fast forward to 2022, we still look back at our wedding album with the same butterflies that we experienced during those big moments, saying our I do's and celebrating the night away with our friends and family. Neither of us can recall what the flowers looked like, how the food tasted or the decor at the venue. What's remembered is how excited and giddy we were to FINALLY be husband and wife! At the end of the day, all you have to look back on is your photo album and we truly believe in the magic of those moments.

If we have it our way, you'll be experiencing those same giddy feelings that we do every time you pick up that album. This created the concept of intentional connections. You are more than just a bride and groom for the day. We value relationships and serving our people. Treating you to dinner during the early stages of planning is just one of the ways we get to spend time with you as a couple during this process, and let's face it, we have so much fun doing so!

When we all vibe, we are able to capture so many of those GENUINE moments. Who wants to work with a stuffy professional who isn't a JOY to be around, anyway? Truly having a great time and providing you with the best experience, is THE BIGGEST mission of our business. 

Our attention to detail, timeline expertise and genuine love for people is how we are able to create
JOYFUL, AUTHENTIC and TIMELESS PHOTOGRAPHS for YOU!

Hiiiii! I'm Kenzie.

Here's our story.

In 2013, I was in the same boat as you are now. Newly engaged and planning my own wedding.
I couldn't contain my excitement as the days counted down.

September 6, 2014 was the day I would marry my high school sweetheart
in the country near the little town we both grew up in.

Our life is full of jubilant chaos. Between our 11 year old boy and two girls, ages 2 & 5, moments of calm are hard to come by. Truth be told, we wouldn't have it any other way.

Tyson and I met in 2nd grade, and "went out" in 4th grade, when I broke up with him for trying to hold my hand(oyy). We dated for 2 years in high school, and after being broken up for 4 years, began dating again in 2012. Sometimes you just can't get over your first love, and we are a walking testimony of that.

We are the same but opposite. We are both passionate, strong-willed (I am stronger-willed), individuals who will give our all to a project, no matter the type. Tyson is the calm to my wild, the methodical thinker to my always pushing-the-limits self, and future planner and goal-setter, to my in-the-now free spirit.

Together we love to travel, try new things, and by nature, we are always moving, brainstorming and creating. Our 3rd love, after each other and our kids, is traveling to new places, particularly near a warm ocean. I'm not a big fan of boats, because sea-sickness is so real folks, but I will tough it out every time because marine life will always have my heart. Tyson was blessed with zero motion-sickness problems whatsoever, so he's always down for sea-craft adventures.

We are firm believers that marriage is 100/100, not 50/50. Tyson refuses to let us stay mad at each other for long (this stubborn streak, man). Our squabbles generally last until he somehow makes me laugh until I forget what I'm mad about. Unless I'm hungry because, hANGER issues, in which case, he doesn't mess with me, but will always feed me.

1. If I wasn't a photographer I'd be a Dolphin trainer. I love sea life and when I had the opportunity to swim with dolphins in mexico I, no joke, cried.

2.I graduated high school with a 3.8 gpa but i failed math and i still can't do it to this day. my 5th grader loves to make fun of me for it.

3. i could basically work for the fbi with my investigative skills. that has always been one of my dream jobs. i like creating more though so, here we are.
