When I came across Des on the hunt for our photographer, it was like a dream come true. She impressed me off the bat with the amount of professionalism, information and transparency she provides through her website before you even hire them. Not only are Des and Dan skilled in photography, but they also offer packages that assist in destination planning, vendors, location scouting, timelines, and packing lists. Having someone in your arsenal that serves a major purpose AND has endless knowledge of your event is priceless.
We were blown away by our final gallery. Obsession isn’t a strong enough word. Everything we told Des I wanted out of our pictures, we got ten-fold.

Do we offer all inclusive packages?

Ya know, the kind with photography, an officiant, florals, you name it?

That’s a *beep* no, & here’s why:

We believe your wedding day is too precious for you to hand the reins over to someone else.

We believe your wedding day should reflect you… not reflect what bouquet, officiant, or activity is the cheapest.

We believe your wedding day deserves the curated and intentional touch that only you can bring.

We believe your wedding day–from start to finish-should feel familiar, comfy, and out of this world exciting.

We believe your wedding day should not be a source of regret because of a compromise that didn’t feel like you.

We believe your wedding day deserves the luxury of vendors you choose and a team working to customize your experience for the entire experience.

Here’s what eloping folks are saying about hiring us:

Honestly, Dalton and I were terrified of having our photos taken at first, but Destinie made us feel so comfortable and prepared for our day. She has a heart of gold that shines through her delightful and delicate thoughtfulness. She reminds me a lot of the mountains, her roots are planted deep, she is not easily shaken by the winds and changes of the world. That day she was not just our photographer, but she was a dear encourager and friend. She has such a beautiful heart that really listens to those she’s around, which allows her to capture the little, but powerful moments. I could go on for days about this lovely soul, but if you are in need of not just a photographer, but someone who can capture the very heartbeat of a relationship she’s your human.
