It’s what makes photography worth pursuing. In a culture where we can spend hours scrolling Instagram consuming images like potato chips, the photos that give life, feed the soul, and last longer than an afternoon scroll are the ones that we take of people and their loved ones.
We don’t just mean the simple, sweet, superficial love.
We believe the way we see the world, and our perspective of humanity, matters. We choose to see the best in people. It's in the raw, un-posed, real-life moments that we all connect with each other.
Establishing a connection is pivotal to getting great images of you.
We’re talking about the deep love: the kind that’s had heartbreaking moments, exhausting days, hard choices, and the most beautiful connection you can dream of. If there is love, we’re there. Love doesn’t go out of style.
We come to your wedding with the perspective of a bride & groom who were once in your very excited, slightly nervous, and emotional shoes. Your commitment together made in front of all the people who love you the most in this world. And it’s the details of their smiling faces that you never want to forget.
We come to your wedding with the perspective of a mom and dad who have held their babies, and have thought of their weddings since the day they were born. I don’t know how normal it is to hold your baby and think of their wedding day, but we do!
Our approach to photographing is making sure that you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that we can capture your authentic selves and the real love that you share.
You decide that you pretty much love us and we determine that we pretty much love you after a few email messages and maybe a Skype chat over coffee. We require a 25% retainer fee to save your date with us, contracts are signed, and we get this party started!
We insist on engagement sessions. We want you to know our style of directing and to feel totally at ease in front of our cameras. There’s a lot of nerves that happen on a wedding day, and we don’t want any of those to be “I’m afraid of the camera” nerves. The icing is that you walk away with great photos that you can cherish for the rest of your life, but the cake is we get comfortable with each other, and we learn how to photograph you best, so we’re not winging it on your wedding day. We believe in them so much that they’re included complimentary. You’re welcome!
A few months before your wedding day, you get a shot list to help sort out all the photographs that are most important to you. We take that shot list and turn it into a photography timeline that will help your day flow smoothly and will keep you and your type A family members at ease.
Your wedding is as awesome as you planned it would be! We laugh, we cry, and we fall more in love with you after meeting your family & friends. Your wedding images are everything you dreamed they would be, and you question whether 100 or 700 images are appropriate to share on social media?! You have your sacred day captured in photos to have and to hold and share for generations to come.

Before we merged our lives, we were both photographing weddings separately for about 6ish years. Lovers of Love was born in the summer of 2010. We’re almost nine years old!! But we have 15 years of experience within us. WOO! Because we’re super fancy, we both have BA’s in professional photography so add that to our experience in the field and we have a pretty solid idea of how to photograph a wedding. #humblebrag - You’re in good hands when you go with us.
You can expect to receive 75-100 images per hour that we photograph. So, if we photograph your wedding for 7 hours, you can expect to receive approx. 525-700 finished pictures. We set you up with high res jpegs so you can print large and small photos and hang them all over your pretty house.
The day after your wedding we send a sneak peek of photos to share with the world. So social media sees more than the drunk photos that your friends posted on the dance floor. We do our best to get your full wedding edited ASAP. We pinky promise, to have your images to you within six weeks after your wedding date. We more than pinky promise it's in our contract as well.
Absolutely! We photograph every single wedding together. There’s no extra charge for both of us, and there’s no discount for just one of us. We’re a package deal! Rest assured there will be no stranger to show up to photograph your wedding. Our goal is to be friends and know each other well by the time your wedding day arrives!
We feed off the energy of the day and the couple. We strive to capture authentic moments with a photojournalist approach while maintaining a well-guided hand to make sure you land in the best light, in the best locations. You’ll get a well-rounded mix of candid/lifestyle photos + directed (but not cheesy) photos.
Our Wedding Collections begin at $4,500
We are keenly aware that your photos are all that you will have after these great moments pass. We trust that you can see the difference in us and our work. Wedding planning & parenting is hard but choosing your photographer shouldn’t be we’re here to make that a fun and enjoyable process. You deserve amazing photography of your life, and we take great care and intentionally work at making that happen for our clients.

We are very awkward and nervous in front of a camera. We wanted someone who would somehow be able to make us feel comfortable and capture all of those small intimate moments at our wedding. The second we FaceTimed with Nate and Dana all of our nerves were gone! They were so easy going and relaxed and immediately felt like old friends!!!
"We LOVED all of our photos and were so happy to have them be a part of our big day."
As we are a lesbian couple it was important for us to find someone who respected our relationship but was also excited to photograph us. As soon as we Skyped to meet (we live in the UK) we knew straight away that they were the right photographers for us, & we weren't wrong!
"We had a blast during our engagement shoot & received the most amazing images. We had our trust fully in Dana & Nate at our wedding and our photographs are stunning."
Dana & Nate were so much fun to work with!! The photos came out fantastic, we've received tons of compliments on them already! Definitely would recommend this team for photos of your big day!
"It's not every day that you are in a photo shoot, and their warmth and good humor really allowed my husband and I to feel comfortable in front of the camera."
Dana and Nate are THE best photographers and people in general. First off, they are easy to communicate with whether it’s in the initial set up of everything or in person during the fun stuff. They are detail oriented in the most amazing ways and it shows in their work - which is stunning to say the least!
"Our wedding day of course was the cherry on top, we felt so happy to have the both of them help guide us thru our day and capture every special moment! They truly have blessed us with so many memories."
