hello

We shoot for love.

Over the past ten years, we’ve photographed over three hundred weddings, and all the big days before and after.

No cheese. No stiffness. No flimsy memories.

Our clients know what they want.

 

That glow you get around her. When his pinkie hooks yours as you wait in line. The way Mom gets around babies. How the little one looks like a mini-version of his grandparents. How she looks when she laughs. The quiet pride he has in you. The way they smile to themselves. For us, it’s not just about the occasion or the location. We want to see what you see when you look at the people you love. We find beauty in what’s real.  

Our love story began on the dance floor at First Avenue.

Cadence comes from a long line of photographers and music teachers. As a kid, she got her film developed at Kmart. She always made sure to check “double prints” on the envelope so she could give copies away to her subjects.  

Eli started playing in the dark room in college. His father also took photos, which is where he got a sense of humor and an eye for angles. After he met Cadence, whenever she put down her camera, he picked it up. Now, they both have their own.

We’re happiest when we’re dancing in the kitchen with our baby Solomon, snuggled up on the couch watching our favorite shows (Eli: Game of Thrones; Cadence: The Americans), sipping whiskey cocktails, and of course, adding to the family album.

Words cannot even express how much we LOVE the pictures. Dan was making fun of me because I “favorited” almost all of them. I know they catch and reflect our personalities, and the ones of us laughing just make my heart melt, because laughing is my favorite thing to do. Thank you so much for the incredible photographs.
