meet the creatives

let s create some magic together

our philosophy 

1. Be your hype people, always.
 2. Create art that stays true to you.
3. Listen and observe.
4. Always be present.
5. Stay adventurous.
6. Experience with you, alongside you, and from afar.

Most importantly number 7. We will always put you first above all else because at the end of the day after the celebration is over, the cake is gone, and everyone has gone home; what you have left are your memories. Your photos, your films, and the experience you had with us.

our story

We are Grace and Ben.
We love island hopping and finding new spots along the Maine Coast to camp, we have a knack for spotting the best trees to hang our hammocks, and our favorite past time is cooking over a fire under the stars. At home our three cats are our lives, we enjoy tending to our garden, and learning new ways to be sustainable, and on Sunday's- we make quiche! We are currently based in Southern Maine, but enjoy traveling where ever life takes us.

We met on a beautiful August night in Harspwell, Maine. The stars were out, a cool salty breeze in the air, and a cottage full of loved ones. Ben showed up with his kayak and camera in tow, spending most of the evening taking time-lapses for the sky did quite the dance that night. Who would've known that a place that was already so special to the both of us would be where our story would begin.

Fast forward to 7 years later we are living our own love story while happily capturing the best day of people's lives! It is truly a gift to be able to be immersed in such loving energy with the person you love the most. When we are not filming/photographing/editing your love stories, we are off on a kayak adventure, mapping out our next camping trip, or cooking delicious meals with our family and friends. We love the outdoors but also love a good night in with a bottle of wine. We feel at home with each other under the stars and take advantage of everything that New England has to offer. 

We so hope to hear from you soon. We would love to get to know you and tell YOUR story!

We believe in capturing all that YOU are, your essence, your love language. We use carefully crafted cinematography, photography, and sound to evoke feeling and emotion, for the day truly rides on all the feels. We want to bring about not only the love you two share, but also the energy that surrounds the place and humans you choose to be with you that day. So many lives coming together to celebrate YOU, and our style is to capture all that it is! 

We believe in the quiet moments for they are just as powerful as the big, we love what mother nature brings us for weather for there is beauty in it all, we are honored to witness those magical "it's our wedding day" looks, the tears, the laughs, the happiest of times.

We not only get to know you but your family and friends as well, for engaging in a good experience is of utmost importance. We want to be there when you need us, invisible when you don't, all the while documenting your most important memories.

is real, is authentic, is YOU
