Aside from her ability to capture genuine images, her personality and good nature are what make her great at this job. She is thoughtful, nurturing, caring, kind and quick witted. She has always gone out of her way to make sure that our clients are happy. It's the little things and the details that never escape her lens.

Dave is a self taught photographer that never stops learning. He walks into every situation looking for ways it can be the best. His biggest love is photojournalism, which is one of his biggest strengths as well, but they don’t stop there. In addition to being a great photographer he is a pretty amazing person as well. He is often the one who is helping with boutonnieres and dresses; making sure details are perfect.

When we made the decision to expand our team we knew right away that Charlene was going to be the perfect addition. Not only is she a member of our family but her style is parallel to ours. She brought her photography background and continues to grow as a visual storyteller. She instinctively knows the moments that matter. This is more than a job to her, it is fulfilling, heartwarming and she is emotionally invested in her work which makes everyone feel a little bit closer!
