Our Philosophy

No staged nonsense. Just real moments.

We are Michael and Jenna Beard. We are documentary wedding photographers who love telling visual stories. Our number one goal is to give you a special connection to your wedding images, because they are real people in real moments with genuine emotions. Nothing staged, fake, or cheesy.


Your wedding day will not feel like one big photo shoot. Our hands-off approach allows you the freedom to not even think about photography. You will actually get to go to your wedding - enjoy getting ready with friends, be fully present during your ceremony, mingle with guests during cocktail hour, dance all night at the reception. We capture what's happening as the story unfolds in front of us.
