We met in high school but it took 14 years before we became partners

We're Jay and Larissa. We met in 9th grade Spanish class and while Jay was immediately smitten, it took Ris another 14 years before she realized that Jay was her person. Since then, we've lived in 4 different states, had two little boys, completed two graduate degrees, and traveled as much as we possibly can.

And in 2014 we started this business together while Jay was in grad school at Yale. And after Jay spent two years working as a photojournalist at Yale, we decided to make photography our career.

Photography had been a passion of both of ours since we were in high school, but until then we'd never imagined it could be our job. We consider ourselves the luckiest people in the world to be able to do what we love, photographing amazing people during their most important moments.

Get to know us.

We love our family more than anything else.

We try to spend every day creating memories as a family. You can often find us exploring museums, at the hockey rink, or tearing up some trail on our mountain bikes. And we often live our lives with one eye pressed up against a camera, because we are desperate to capture every moment before it becomes a faded memory.

That's why we love photographing weddings, because we know how important every photo can be. Because one day, all we'll have left Are the photos and memories of the ones we love most. That's why we do what we do.

"To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality."
