Traverse city and connecticut

photographers + videographers

candid + timeless

You want honest photos that make you feel something… and while you’ve seen other photographers’ work, you want the best wedding photographers who make you feel something real. You don’t want traditional or posed photos… you want relaxed and genuine. We call it candid and timeless imagery, and as wedding photographers in Traverse City and Grand Rapids, we specialize in just that.

You think having a married couple shoot your wedding is pretty awesome, and if every guest at your wedding thought you were friends with your photographers, that would be even better. You will be relaxed in front of the camera because we promise to capture every important and raw moment.

You care about having timeless images that encapsulate your day. We think it’s great that you care because we want you to! We don’t want you to book us because we offered you the best package.

Whether you’re in Northern Michigan or the East Coast (Connecticut + New York), we’re here to make your wedding unforgettable. We simply want you to have the best experience ever, and we offer it customized to your needs, so let’s get started, shall we?


We are a husband and wife photography & videography team. We started our business 14 years ago in Traverse City, Michigan where we discovered our love and pipe dream of capturing life’s special moments. Oden’s outgoing personality and go-getter attitude combined with Janelle’s exceptional organizational skills, make us the perfect team. We have since then assembled an amazing team of photographers that encapsulate our passion for candid imagery. 

Every wedding we capture is treated as if it were our own, focusing on what we would want captured. We put our heart and soul into each couple’s day, giving 110% to ensure the best experience possible.
