Blending creativity and expertise to capture the greatest of life's celebrations. Whether amidst the iconic landmarks of Washington, DC, or at a dream destination, our work as a wedding photographer is longed-for for our dedication to crafting iconic imagery.


Capturing exceptional celebrations for those who want a mix of classic, documentary, editorial & film photos.




"I like to introduce myself as a person first and photographer second. Because my love for story-telling through images is inspired by the life I live and aspire to live as a whole person. My ability to pay attention and capture not only the big moments but also the small, overlooked moments of a wedding day is rooted in my experiences, feelings and emotions as a human being. For my clients' weddings, I take inspiration based on who they are as a couple, where they come from and who they aspire to be. And my external inspiration comes from the spectacular landscapes of North Carolina I get to call home, to the busy & beautiful architecture of Washington, DC that is now my second home, and the breathtaking destinations across the globe.

To be someone's wedding storyteller & artist as a wedding photographer is the honor of my life." - Patty Betts (Owner & Lead Photographer)

The artist behind the work:





Rooted in a deep belief that the uninterrupted and non-staged moments of your wedding day are sacred, the photographer's job is to be present, notice and be ready to photograph it.  Our approach is natural, organic and creative. A mix of documentary, editorial & classic. Your wedding weekend will be like no other and your wedding photos must do it justice. Whether you're getting married at a historical wedding venue in DC, a family property or luxury wedding venue in North Carolina, you're having the coolest wedding in NYC in the rush of the city or at a dream destination in Europe or across the globe, collaboration with your wedding planner & creative team is key to bring your vision to life.

For the memories that will last forever and the ones that may fade away, our vow as your wedding photographer is to document your day exactly how you want to remember it. Nothing less, nothing more.

With your unparalleled taste & our ability to provide creative direction when needed, your wedding photos are about to be epic.
