The Experience

We do things just a little bit differently...


We're on your team.

We’ve photographed nearly 200 weddings and we’ve seen everything under the sun. We’ll hook you up with recommendations for kick-ass vendors, help you plan your timeline and, if you’re coming from out of town, provide suggestions for some of the best restaurants, breweries, hikes and day trips in Colorado. We’re here as a resource for you throughout the entire planning process and we’ll make sure your wedding photography experience is relaxed and enjoyable.

Prep work

We're type-A so you don't have to be.

To ensure we capture the best photos we possibly can, we’ll scout your venue the day before your wedding and come up with a bunch of cool ideas. We’ll know exactly what time the sun will set and where the best light will be. We’ll also coordinate with your wedding planner, venue and all of your other vendors ahead of time to make sure your day goes smoothly.


We only shoot 20 weddings per year.

We pour every ounce of ourselves into what we do. Limiting our schedule gives us the mental bandwidth and creative freedom to do each shoot justice and to cultivate a unique wedding photography experience for each individual couple.

Full-day coverage

We'll tell the entire story of your wedding.

We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your wedding day with friends and family without feeling rushed. We’ll be on hand from “getting ready” to the final send-off, so you don’t have to worry about us leaving just when the dance floor starts rockin’.


We never replicate a photo.

Every wedding is unique and your wedding photos should be unique as well. When you hire us, you know that your photos won’t look like anyone else’s photos. We’ll get to know you before the wedding so that we can customize your wedding photography experience with us to ensure that your photos match your personalities. We’ll find out what makes you unique and focus on that.

Real moments

No more fake smiles.

Jesse’s background is in photojournalism and he worked as a newspaper photographer long before we started shooting weddings. While we’re probably best known for our portraits, more than 90% of the photos we shoot are authentic, unscripted moments. It’s when you’re lost in the moment and unaware of the camera that your personality really shines through.

Two Photographers

And it's always Jesse & Moira.

We’ve developed a chemistry over 13 years shooting together and our styles perfectly complement one another’s. Most wedding photography duos are comprised of a “primary” shooter and “second” shooter. We’re more of a 1A and a 1B team.

Alt sessions

They're unbelievably fun.

This is our alternative to the more traditional engagement session. Instead of standing in a field practicing awkward poses, we’ll hang out and do something fun. Like skiing. Or shooting pool. Or grabbing a pint at your favorite brewery. We’ll get to know each other and take some really awesome photos along the way. We have a long list of cool ideas we’d like to try and we’ll talk with you ahead of time to learn about your interests and make sure the shoot is unique to you as a couple.

Photo album

Where the story of your wedding day will be relived.

Your photos are going to be epic. Too epic to be contained by your computer screen. We want you to have finished artwork that you can touch and experience with all of your senses. Something you can pull out as evidence when you’re telling new friends about how Best Man Steve fell in the pool at your reception. And that’s why every one of our couples gets a 20-page, 8×8 photo album* as part of their package.

*Additional pages and size upgrades available during album consultation.
