Husband and Wife Photography Team

We are a husband and wife photography team specializing in adventure weddings and elopements. We are professional road trippers, podcast bingers, and firm believers in the non-traditional approach to wedding planning. As a team, we always work together to give two unique, yet cohesive perspectives on your love story.

 

About Us

Our story begins in St. George, Utah when Kyle moved down to work at Tori's church as an intern youth pastor. We got to know each other through our church’s college Bible study group. Kyle was starting to pursue photography and found out this cute girl also happened to be into photography. He decided that he needed an assistant for his photoshoots, which made for a convenient opportunity to hang out with Tori more. We got married at sunrise overlooking the city with the peaks of Zion in the background. From that day on, we dove head first into this adventure together and wouldn’t change it for anything!

We Love Jesus

He's been a central part of our story from the beginning. More than anything we want to operate in a way that shows who He is and love on people the way He loves us. For us, that means caring for and serving each of our couples and treating them with respect, no matter their story, while doing everything within our ability to provide an honorable service. 

We Love to Travel

We’ve been to Seattle, all over Colorado and Utah, adventured in Arizona, road tripped to Nashville, explored the Twin Cities, and honeymooned in Costa Rica, and that's just the beginning! Few things are as exciting to us as an opportunity to share an experience in a new place with cool people and to document their love together. We have an extensive bucket list of places we’d love to visit, maybe one of them is on yours too, we should totally go together!

We Love Weddings

Like, we really really love them. They're so cool, and so weird all at the same time. How many other events do people get as heavily invested in as a wedding? People are stoked, parties are had, emotions are everywhere; and in the midst of it all, two people in love make some of the most important commitments. We get to document you launching into the adventure of life together, surrounded by people that love you. Every wedding we photograph is a reminder of how awesome marriage is, and how privileged we are to be a part of it all!

Kyle

I'm basically just a little boy at heart: easily excitable and I still want to be like my dad when I grow up. I was born and raised in Colorado and even though I think Utah is rad, those mountains will always have my heart. I'm crazy passionate, sometimes to a fault. When I decide I like something, I want to know everything about it. I'm the leader of the duo, I typically give direction, help craft the moments, and shoot the epic wide images.

Random Facts

  • I'm a serious coffee snob, like I run a coffee Instagram on the side serious

  • I love getting my hair cut. I go to my barber every two weeks.

  • I’m really good a Flossing (the dance move), if the right song comes on, it’ll probably happen at your reception.

  • I cried like a baby when I first saw her at our wedding

  • I love rowdy music like metal and punk.

Tori

I was born and raised in the great state of Utah, and learned in my early teens to appreciate the beauty around me - feeling a little bit bad for people who live in places without mountains. I have loved photography since high school, and I have hard drives of embarrassing photos of rusty junk, Southern Utah mountains, my dog, and my sister - who I frequently made my model. I’m detail oriented and very much a planner, but being married to Kyle has taught me to loosen up a little. I love hospitality, and I show love through feeding and taking care of people. At weddings I'm watching for in between moments, fly away hair, and beautiful lace details, making sure we're within our timeline, and sharing my snacks so our couple doesn't get too hungry before dinner.

Random Facts

  • I love music, and I learned to play guitar from DVD’s, and then taught myself to play piano by ear

  • I'm the oldest of 9 siblings in a blended family

  • I got my first job when I was 18, and I worked there for 6 years - until I quit to do photography full time

  • My sister and I have matching big and little dipper tattoos because we’re adorable

  • I was homeschooled until my junior year of high school, then said “Screw this” and got my GED so I could start college a year early

  • I love mail, letters and postcards, and have a binder of basically every letter or card I’ve ever received. I will for sure be your pen pal!

  • I have tried so, so hard, but I truly and sincerely do not like the taste of coffee
