WE ARE ANDREW + EMILYJADE

WEDDING & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHERS BASED IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA.

8 YEARS AGO, I (EMILYJADE) ATTENDED A NEW CHURCH ONLY TO BE COMPLETELY DISTRACTED BY THE HOT MUSICIAN ON STAGE WITH A BACKWARDS BASEBALL HAT AND STUNNING BLUE EYES. A YEAR OF SPORATIC EMAILS, A LONG TRIP TO JAPAN, 3 MONTHS OF DATING, AND A SIX MONTH ENGAGEMENT LATER, THAT MAN WAS MY HUSBAND!

IN MAY 2009 (JUST SIX MONTHS AFTER WE WERE MARRIED), WE TOOK A TRIP TO IRELAND TOGETHER AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THE BEAUTY OF THE LAND, THE LOVING PEOPLE, AND SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL WAS BIRTHED IN US. ANDREW HAS LOVED PHOTOGRAPHY (AND ALL THINGS ARTISTIC) SINCE HE COULD WALK, BUT A NEW PASSION CONSUMED ME. WE COULDN'T STOP TAKING PICTURES AND TRYING TO RECREATE THE BEAUTY IN FRONT OF US... TRYING TO MAKE THE SMILES LAST... TRYING TO KEEP THOSE MEMORIES FOREVER ALIVE.

SHORTLY AFTER WE GOT HOME, WE QUIT OUR JOBS, SOLD A BUNCH OF OUR BELONGINGS, AND BOUGHT A WHOLE LOT OF NEW CAMERA GEAR. OUR PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER WAS BIRTHED.
LITTLE DID WE KNOW THAT AT THE SAME TIME, SOMETHING ELSE WAS GROWING IN ME... OUR FIRST BABY. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL NEW SEASON FOR US!

AFTER DECIDING THAT WEDDINGS AND LOVE STORIES WERE OUR TRUE PASSION, WE FOUND THAT WE LOVED THE NATURAL ASPECT OF A WEDDING DAY. NO AWKWARD POSING, NO FORCED SMILES. WE CAPTURE WEDDINGS AS THEY UNFOLD AND HAVE A MORE NATURAL APPROACH. REAL SMILES. REAL PEOPLE. INTENSE LOVE AND RAW EMOTION. OUR PHOTOS TELL A STORY.

AFTER 6 YEARS IN BUSINESS TOGETHER, 7 YEARS OF MARRIAGE, 3 BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, AND 150+ WEDDINGS LATER, WE ARE MORE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT WE DO THAN EVER. EVERY WEDDING IS A BEAUTIFUL STORY UNFOLDING. EVERY TIME I HEAR "I DO" OR WATCH THAT FIRST KISS, I AM OVERWHELMED BY EMOTION AND A DEEP CONFIRMATION THAT WE HAVE THE BEST JOB IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. CREATING AND CAPTURING PRICELESS, INCREDIBLE MEMORIES IS NOT ONLY OUR JOB, ITS OUR HEART. WHO WE ARE. WE LOVE WHAT WE DO.

WE WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO CAPTURE YOUR LOVE STORY.
TO CREATE INCREDIBLE, LASTING MEMORIES THAT YOU ARE CAPTIVATED BY.
