Frequently Asked Questions

How would you best describe your photography style?

Our style is a blend of photojournalism, candid moments, and natural portraits. We like bright colors, natural elements, and beautiful light. We spend very little time in Photoshop because we like to get it right in camera. Drawing inspiration from classic photography; our philosophy is that wedding photos should be beautiful and timeless. What makes us current is our ability to use our environments in creative ways offering a fresh perspective. Above all else we want your photography experience with us to be fun and the photos to be true to who you are.


We are no “ordinary” couple – will you photograph us?

Um… YES! If you have found someone who makes you laugh when you are down and loves you with all their heart, then we want to be a part of your story. Jesse, Gena, Barb, & Jordyn provide services to all people regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation. We do not discriminate against any groups and welcome all who are interested in our services.


How long have you been photographers?

Jesse, Gena, and Barbara are all full time professional photographers and have been for 12 years. Jordyn keeps us on our toes by being the youngest among us with 5 years of professional experience. We are all career photographers and storytellers.


Do you travel for weddings and engagements?

YES! In fact we love to travel and do so quite frequently for our photography. We are experienced travelers with active passports.


Is it true that Jesse & Gena are high school sweethearts?

YES! And no! We did go to the same high school but didn’t meet until one fateful trip to the local mall. Gena was a junior and Jesse was starting his second year at the University of Evansville (as you can imagine Gena’s parents were thrilled she had met a boy who was in college. 😉 But nonetheless, we were inseparable from day 1, got married in 2007, and the rest is history in the making!


Will you help us with timelines and vendor referrals?

You betcha! We’ve photographed weddings big and small and have worked with lots of great vendors. We also help all of our couples create the most ideal photography timeline for their day. While we are by no means a substitution for a great wedding planner we do like to help out where we can.


How can I see wedding collection prices?

Our collections start at $1495. Please visit our investment page for all collection info and contact us for full pricing information.


We are not in Indiana or Kentucky but would love to talk more – how do we go about this?

We try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible to help answer any questions you have for us. Many of our couples live out of town. Phone chats and emails definitely get the ball rolling and often Skype and FaceTime with our couples.


What kind of cameras do you shoot with?

We have worked with all three major systems; Canon, Nikon, and Sony. It is our philosophy that learning a new system makes you a better photographer. That being said we are in love with our brand new Sony cameras and everyone at our studio shoots Sony. We also have more lenses than we really care to admit but not more than we need 🙂 We really take being prepared for wedding days very seriously so we are always stocked with plenty of back-up gear too.
