Duke was the best choice I made for the whole day! He has an incredibly easygoing, mellow personality that made me really comfortable-- we were just laughing and cracking up the whole time we were taking photos before the ceremony, which was a great way to start the day. I... Read More told him I cared way more about having fun and capturing great candid shots of the party than anything else, and he delivered that exactly-- I didn't even realize he was taking half of the great photos that he did, he was so unobtrusive. He emailed the first batch of photos almost immediately after the wedding (which was really nice) and I had a great time looking through all the pictures of us, family and friends dancing and having a blast. He captured all the moments that when I look at the photos, I go "oh yeah, THAT was one of my favorite parts of the day I almost forgot...and THAT...oh, and THAT." Really, really great.

Meet The Owner

Duke & Jera

I've been a wedding & life photographer for 10 yrs. My interest for photography came out of my lack of ability to draw or paint. I discovered that the camera was the answer to capturing all of the beautiful things I saw in the world. My interest in the early years of being a photographer was in nature and wildlife. Now, wedding photography is where my passion lies. Jera has an extensive background in art & has been making our albums since the beginning but in the last five years has been my second photographer. We’ve been married for 27yrs & it gives us a great advantage shooting together.
