Ranchers-turned-photographers, our world is our Craftsman-style farmhouse, coffee in the kitchen, Edison lights on the back porch, and a pair of English bulldogs who are the stars in our sky.

Our adventure first began over a decade ago when we met at a cattle show in South Dakota. Little did we know, we would eventually trade in our boots and spurs for cameras and cakes.

Two years later: Fate insists we meet again. Luke seizes the moment and programs his number into Cat's cell phone as “The Coolest Luke Ever.” Wasn't he? In protest, she proclaims: “Good Southern girls don't call boys!” But when has true love ever listened to the rules?

Two more years later: We are dating across state lines. Living for long-distance phone calls and fleeting weekends together. Writing love letters by hand in the digital age. Those letters spell out one singular truth: we are meant to be.

Luke joins the Aggie family, enrolling at Texas A&M. Then, he proposes and joins the family once more: To have and to hold, from this day forward, to cherish English bulldogs, to love mac'n'cheese, and to walk hand in hand under the big Texas sky ‘til death do they part.

What happens after “I Do?” A bustling household. A never-ending list of home improvement projects. Millions of frequent flyer miles. A growing family with the addition of two English Bulldogs:
Wilma and Hudson.

There's nothing like a love story. The dream is in the details. As far as we're concerned, we have the best job in the world, the honor of documenting and celebrating love. (And, we get to eat lots and lots of wedding cake.)

Our memories

We spend so much time behind the camera, we make sure to hop in front once a year to document our own lives. If Coca-Cola bottles happiness, cameras capture joy. Whether it’s for us (or for future children and grandchildren), life’s best moments deserve to be remembered. Photos by Millie Holloman.

When wanderlust strikes, we hit the highway. 22 hours of driving will get us to our favorite vacation spot - Bald Head Island, NC.

A FEW OF OUR
FAVORITE THINGS

the good life

We live in an early 1900s farmhouse that was Cat's grandparents' wedding gift to us. Wherever our travels take us, we're always glad to be home.

our home

Our style is sentimental yet fresh; vintage-inspired with a modern twist. That’s why we love shooting film - it’s classic romance defined.

Our favorite time of day? Cupcake o’clock. Sprinkles red velvet, cream cheese icing, and a tall glass of milk are the best reward at the end of a long day!

red velvet sprinkles cupcakes

Wilma and Hudson, our English bulldogs, look great in tuxedos and love to eat cake, but they stay home when we work.

our buddies

A bottle of wine and some snacks, Van Morrison on the turntable, and friends gathered ‘round. It’s our definition of a perfect evening.

good company

We look for beauty that comes from the inside, not for your ‘best side’. We look for unfiltered truth and soft-filtered light. We look for genuine moments with friends and family that will evoke fond memories. We look for joy. We value real faces more than Facebook. We value genuine interest more than Pinterest. We value real flowers, real wedding albums, and real time. Most of all, we value you.

our passions

A lasting marriage begins with an enduring friendship; so does a partnership with us. And just like any partnership, it only works when we both feel that special spark. It's like finding the right wine for dinner. The right shoes for the dress. The one you'll love forever. 

We meet a lot of couples, but we don't work with all of them. If the spark isn't there, we say goodbye and good luck. Why? Because the best things in life are worth waiting for, and that includes you. 

We'll find out if that kinship is there, and if it is—we're ready and willing to fall head over heels.  We'll have you over to the ranch for wine and cheese, coffee and conversation, laughter and celebration. 

 By the time you say, “I do,” we'll be at your wedding not just as photographers, but also as friends. Because once we find that special connection, we're in it for life.

The one worth waiting for

You know what's important—friends, family, your fianceé, and the occasional bowl of Kraft macaroni and cheese (Okay, that last one might only be on Luke's list!). You value hard work and tough love and the tenderness of true connection. You're a blend of perfectly matched contradictions: cowboy boots under a delicate lace dress, a glass of sweet tea in your Grandma’s best crystal. You've been looking forward to this day your whole life. 

You believe in destiny. Your unique style led you to discover us, and we can't wait to help you on your journey. We've traveled this road many times before, and we're here to help you now, on your way down an aisle, and beyond.
