kind words from a few of our new best friends
“Josiah and Summer are incredibly organized and patient! They helped us with our engagement photos. Both Michael and I can feel incredibly awkward in front of the camera! Josiah was patient with us and captured our goofy sense of humor and love in a unique way. We highly recommend Josiah and Summer!”
—Laura and Michael—
“Josiah and Summer captured our proposal/ engagement photos. Neither my husband nor I feel especially confident when it comes to pictures and I did not know they were even there for the proposal part, but they were so kind and great with directions. My husband said that they helped him plan every step of the way and were super up to speed about positive and consistent communication. They also listened to any concerns or ideas we had. We felt super comfortable with them and we absolutely loved the photos. They are such a loving, caring, and talented couple who we would absolutely get photos again from.”
—HOPE and IAN—
“My (now) husband hired Josiah and Summer for our engagement photos. They did such a wonderful job! I was completely surprised by the engagement and didn't even notice Josiah and Summer snapping away pictures or following me and my husband as we walked to the spot where he proposed. The pictures were returned in a timely manner for us to share with friends and family and were all so beautiful! We ended up using one for our Save the Dates as well. So, so thankful that their photos are a part of our story, absolutely beautiful!”
—Caroline and NOAH—
We headed to Cornwall, UK to join up with Corc Yoga and film a wellness retreat they sponsored. Corc Yoga’s mission to cultivate an eco-conscious and sustainable community constantly inspires us, and we are grateful to work with brands that are changing the world. We had the best time capturing Corc Yoga’s story in the beautiful setting of Cornwall, where the green grass, seaside cliffs, and Cornish Pasties made it all the more perfect.

Chelsea and Nick’s Spokane, WA wedding was one of the most beautiful and moving weddings we’ve had the honor of capturing. Their love was as strong as the summertime heat, and it was a joy to capture the intimate moments as well as the awesome wedding party dance.
