Hi there! We're Joey and Lauren, storytellers based in Cincinnati with a love for adventures and traveling. We're laid back and really positive, which honestly is what you want to be surrounded by on your wedding day. We love all of the little details you put all of your time and love into and a little bit obsessed with making everything look great. We love wedding days and document them just as they happen! When you look back on your day we want to you see your raw happiness and the pure love that surrounds you. We're documentary photographers first but don't worry we'll still get a few photos for your mom to hang on the wall.
We have a Lab Mix named Lady Bird, more commonly called "Bird, Baby Bird Bird, Little B, Lil Baby." She's usually the best pup in the world- just don't leave any socks around and everything is great!
She's pretty goofy and floofy and frequently models in our editorial shoots!
We have a coffee bar in our house and more than one or two coffee makers (maybe even 2 nespressos.) We're always headed somewhere, if Lauren doesn't have a trip on the horizon she gets a little anxious. Joey just travels for the coffee.
We also loveeee pizza.
Joey can build or fix anything you can imagine, Lauren just enjoys helping. We love baking, woodworking, calligraphy (even if we're not good at it) & pretty much anything that we can let loose and get creative with.
At the end of April right after our 4 year dating anniversary Joey proposed! It was a warm day in the little town of Tropea on the beach where a cliff rises up and buildings are carved into it. It was everything Lauren ever could've dreamed of!
Follow along with our wedding planning here
Hi there, I'm Lauren! I've always loved traveling, the more distant or remote the better, if no one speaks a language I speak I'm even happier. I wanted to be a travel photographer ever since I was a little girl and then I fell in love with wedding photography. It combines my love of people, pretty things and traveling. My strong suit is making anyone feel comfortable and confident. I hear I'm a pretty good photo stylist too.
One day Joey said I make better pizza crust than anyone else. (we love making pizza)
I love dogs and will get on the ground to pet one no matter how muddy it is.

Hey guys, I’m Joey! I grew up in Cincinnati and have always had a love and passion for music and film. I studied both in school and have continued to let them be a huge inspiration on my life and work. Being able to conjure emotion through the imagery of photos and videos has been my calling ever since I can remember. If I am not behind a camera or a computer I’m almost always behind a plate of food!
Is being able to shoot in new places
I don't have a colon. You can ask me about it, it's not weird.

We don't limit time. We want to tell your story well and that includes not walking out before we document every important moment. We're there for the long haul you don't have to worry about time constraints.
We're fun! There's no reason for anyone to think they're more important than you are on your wedding day. We're there to be a happy friendly face when you look out into the audience or when you want to be alone during your first look.
You only get lead shooters. We never have a second shooter whether it's photo, video or both you're getting all shooters who could do it on their own but choose to give you something even better.
It's us! The only time you're getting someone who isn't Lauren and Joey is when we do photo and video and bring along a really qualified videographer.
