We are Michael and Jenna Beard, a husband and wife team of photographers who love to tell stories. We thrive on the in-between moments where the real story lives. Our most important goal is for you to look back at your wedding photos in the years to come and remember exactly how you felt. Your photos will be filled with emotion and the people you love. It is so rare and special to have everyone you care about in the same room to celebrate your love story, so we capture them too!
Our style is creative photojournalism mixed with beautiful, dramatic portraits. We want to create photos for you that take your breath away! We actively seek unique little stories that are special to each couple. We don’t back away from emotional moments. We get close, then closer. We chase meaning, purpose and good light. We blend our documentary style with natural feeling portraits that showcase the scenery of your wedding day. Your photos will be timeless works of art with deep shadows and vibrant colors.
We love wedding photography because we love people. Genuine, real connections between people is our absolute favorite thing to capture. It’s what drives and inspires us. The best thing that shooting weddings for over six years has taught us… is to be aware. It is such a priceless gift to see the real moments happening all around us! To choose both awareness and artistry and have the creative space in our minds for both. It would be an honor to tell your story.
"The Beards truly went above and beyond for our engagement and wedding. We have the most gorgeous, unique and creative photos. Memories we can cherish for a lifetime. Not only are they good at what they do but they are lots of fun to be around and work with. Choose these two, I promise you will not be disappointed. " - Molly and Tyler
