Hiya! We’re Austin and Jessica; husband and wife, best friends, co-workers, photographers, videographers and we think we make a pretty great wedding team! We are based in Iowa, but travel the world to create films and capture photos that tell your story.

Austin is from Iowa, Jessica is from England, and we fell in love over FaceTime and iMessage whilst living 4,711 miles apart!⁠ Jessica was living in Townsville, Australia and Austin was in Kona, Hawaii. We absolutely love to travel, and pretty much all our vacations revolve around finding the best places to eat and the best coffee to drink!

We can't wait to be your third and fourth wheel and capture all your magic!

who we are

we are the creative

We want every film to be unique, because no story is the same. We enjoy taking a back seat and letting you be you as you celebrate, fall deeper in love and soak it all in. We craft each video and set of photos with intense love, and we have so much fun doing it.

authentic. fun. emotional. creative.

our work is

We are so glad you found us! We believe more than anything in the world that your story deserves to be told and you deserve to remember how every moment felt. 

We truly love capturing weddings together, and we don't take being trusted to capture the biggest day of your life lightly - what an honor! We are so passionate about what we create, and we hope that comes across in our work. Life is short and tomorrow isn't guaranteed. Your today matters, and we want to capture it.

We are your biggest fans! We think marriage is an incredible gift, and we are here to cheer you on, be your hype people, and offer emotional support, because we all need a little help from our friends.

So here's to life, the highs, the lows, and making memories together. Like an awkward third and fourth wheel. After all that is our job, to follow you around asking you to make out like middle schoolers, and we love it, every single second of it, and we can't wait to share it all with you.
