hi! we are jenn + dave.
it’s nice to meet you, albeit for now simply over this one-way looking glass called a website.
(we wish we could be sitting around a table drinking good drinks & sharing stories with you. instead, we will fill this space with words that will hopefully help you get to know us a bit better.)

we are husband + wife with a passion for looking for beauty and magic in the ordinary moments around us. and then showing other people that magic in the form of captured photographs — time capsules of little stories & truths that might otherwise be missed or forgotten.
we describe ourselves as documentary photographers, and by this we mean that we believe photos should capture the true emotion & the connections that mean something to us. we love photographing couples on their wedding days, families in their homes, this big beautiful world of ours, and many things in between. the best thing about this job hands down is the wonderful people we get to connect with, who welcome us into their circle as one of their own to photograph from a place of trust & honesty. often the telling of these stories has us leaving our city of toronto and that’s the second best thing about this job — when we get to find ourselves in new places (here’s our wish list of places we’re dreaming about!).

some of the things we believe most in . . .
STORYTELLING // we want to document and share stories that make you feel something, and that inspire us all to be the best versions of ourselves.
SHARED EXPERIENCE // we think life is better experienced together in a spirit of authenticity, openness and love where everyone has a seat at the table to share, listen, and learn from each others’ stories.
TAKING THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED // we believe in letting go of that feeling that things need to be a certain way. we celebrate different. we believe in not just doing things because it is the way they’ve always been done, but in discovering the path that is right for you.
EXPERIENCES OVER THINGS // it’s easy to get caught up in all the surface level stuff of life, but above all else we seek to get back to simplicity and always value the things we experience and the people we get to experience with.
EXPLORING // magic and beauty can be found in the simplest of moments if we open our eyes and take the time to look around.

as well as photographing, stories & traveling, we also love going camping & canoe trips, watching films (dave — star wars & lost in translation; jenn — moonrise kingdom & the documentary 180 degrees south), & just doing kinda old people things — making a simple meal together, going on walks, reading next to a fire, hanging out with people we love.
