more about us
Wedding photography was high on our list of priorities for our 2022 wedding. Knowing that these images will be cherished and shared in our family for years to come, we decided to book April & Mike even though they were at the top of our budget. If we knew then how talented and personable they were to work with, we would have paid double!
April is truly gifted at her craft and on top of her skill, takes the time to befriend her couples and get to know their stories. She is a joy to work with! We are so lucky to have the chance to work with you guys and look forward to rooting you on for years to come!

April and Mike were the first vendors we booked and they have been incredible to work with since day one. They truly make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and are able to capture the in between moments with your spouse!
I wouldn’t want anyone else there for these big moments! If you are on the fence, just talk to them and you’ll walk away knowing you are about to make the right decision by booking them. All of our wedding photos are perfect and show the love of that day! None of our photos feel scripted or forced, but just like us. They are the easiest yes you’ll make in this planning process!!

April and Mike were the absolute BEST choice as our wedding photographers for so many reasons. First off, their work is incredible, as they provide a glamorous editorial feel to their photos, telling a story of your big day; capturing all the little details to the big moments!
From the beautiful welcome gift box to the intimate pre wedding meeting for dinner and drinks, this truly was a LUXURY experience. They are prompt and timely, professional, kind and friendly, and amazing at what they do. April even assisted in securing my veil prior to me walking down the aisle and Mike channeled his inner seamstress when by bustle ripped! We were so fortunate that they were our photographers for our wedding day and were happy they were able to share in our experience as well. It was like having another set of friends at our wedding with us!
Sarah & Doug
Booking April & Mike as our wedding photographers was easily one of the best decisions we made. This husband and wife team are one of a kind. Not only are they super talented, but they are genuine people who go above and beyond for their couples. It was the "experience" for us. From the beautiful welcome box, to the intimate pre-wedding meeting over drinks and the personal hand written letters. April is so responsive and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. April & Mike make magic happen while capturing all of the small details. I am thankful our paths have crossed, and we are forever grateful.
Mary & Stefan
Honestly, where do we even begin? We would recommend April to anyone, anywhere, anytime. To be transparent, we fell in love with her work before we even had our initial consultation. April is a true artist, extremely detail-oriented, and has mastered her craft. Not only did we have an amazing photographer, but also ended up with a lifetime friend! April is so sweet, kind, and loving. We could not have pictured having anyone else to capture our love forever.
MARISSA & COLLIN
April & Mike made everything easier. They are so truly talented and invested in what they do, and it shows in all of their work. Not only that but they genuinely care about their couples, and making their big day incredible. Even on our wedding the day, they did so much for us. They have become dear friends of ours beyond photography.
