Your Love, Celebrated. 

Timeless. Sophisticated. Modern. 

We love it all. The beauty. The affection. The tradition. The details. Each wedding we photograph is so uniquely different and profound on a level all its own. When it comes to capturing your day, we prefer to leave the storytelling to you and your guests. 

We believe that our job is not to bark orders and pose you and your family in certain ways, but to commemorate the real moments and narratives that are weaved throughout the day.

And it is our great privilege to photograph your unique love story in the most authentic and beautiful way possible. 

Because it’s your story as a couple. Your legacy to honor.

A Note to the Grooms From Marc

For the Groom

Although you may not have spent as much time thumbing through bridal magazines, Pinterest boards, or a dozen Instagram feed and/or publications that cater to engaged or soon-to-be couples, chances are your future spouse has done just that and is already forming a vision for your perfect wedding. 

I was in that same situation just a few years ago! Although I had already been shooting weddings for a while, I hadn’t given much thought to what I wanted in a photographer. 

Mindy would show me some samples from various photographers and I would give a thumbs up or thumbs down, all based on just the pictures and prices. It didn’t really occur to me how much more we do than just take photos. 

Later on I realized that many of the grooms that I meet find themselves pretty much in the same boat: it’s not until the actual day of the wedding that many of our concerns begin to form.

Based on my experiences, these are the top wedding-day worries: 

Getting Your Photo Taken

Worry #1

Unless you’re a professional model or celebrity, chances are you’re not completely comfortable having your picture taken by a photographer. This is one of the reasons why we include the engagement session, which is basically a dressed-up date night where you get your picture taken and have a nice dinner afterward. Don’t worry about the posing. This is a very casual affair that is filled with some great laughs. When your wedding day does roll around, your photography experience will be a piece of cake for you.

Not Being Able to Have Fun With the Guys

Worry #2

Having me in the background might seem awkward at first, but when I arrive in the morning I’ll say hi to you and your friends and get to work. I enjoy listening to the banter and will occasionally join in, but mostly I’ll blend into the background and capture you guys enjoying the day and having some fun. From figuring out how to tie a bow to folding pocket squares, I’m there to capture all of the antics, jokes, and laughs that happen.

Seeing the Bride Before the Big Moment

Worry #3

Seeing your Fiancée for the first time that day is a very special moment. Understandably, you don’t want it to happen by mistake. Mindy and I will always make sure that your paths do not cross until just the perfect moment, so there is no need to tiptoe around trying to avoid seeing your bride. We know how important this moment is and pride ourselves in capturing and detailing all of the anticipation and excitement it brings.

Photos That Take All Day Long/You Won’t Be Able to Enjoy Drinks and Have Fun.

Worry #4

Getting married is a foregone conclusion—having a really great time with your friends and loved ones on the wedding day is not. Mindy and I create a wedding day photographic timeline with you that always optimizes the time you can spend having fun hanging out with your guests. We will get every picture that you, your spouse, and your family want and we’ll do this without taking away any of the partying experience you are looking forward to.

The Cost

Worry #5

Until you began planning your wedding, chances are you had basically no idea what anything would cost. Now that you have most likely selected your venue, you need to determine how to best allocate your wedding budget dollars. So how do you determine the value of your wedding photography package? 

The answer can be summed up quite simply: You are paying for priceless images that will stand the test of time, plus two experienced wedding photographers that guarantee an enjoyable and effortless day. We come completely prepared with all the best photographic equipment and bring with us the energy and adaptability to take on any wedding day surprises.

"I highly recommend the engagement photo shoot because it made our wedding day pictures such a breeze."

From our first phone conversation with sweet Mindy we knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. We really got to know her during our complimentary engagement session (in our wedding package) and that helped my husband and I get comfortable with her photography style. I highly recommend the engagement photo shoot because it made our wedding day pictures such a breeze. I am such a planner and it was amazing that Mindy is too! I even sent her my wedding day timeline a few months before my wedding and she would give me input and potential things to watch out for. That was months before my wedding, which helped me relax so much! Mindy and Marc are such amazing people inside and out and we were super happy with the work they did for our wedding. Can’t wait for you to join the MLP family, you will be so relieved having them there on your wedding day!!

"She convinced us to do a first look and I could not have been happier with the results!"

Mindy and Marc were phenomenal photographers! Mindy made us feel so comfortable during our engagement photos which helped us on our wedding day. On our big day, Mindy helped coordinate with our vendors to ensure that we had all of the pictures we wanted. She convinced us to do a first look and I could not have been happier with the results! We had a November wedding in the evening and were afraid that we would run out of light after the ceremony. We ended up doing the first look and were able to have a quite, intimate moment and were able to get all of the beautiful pictures we wanted. Mindy and Marc are so easy to work with and I could not be happier about our pictures! I can't stop looking at them!

"I have decorated my walls with her pictures and they all turned out beautifully no matter the size."

Mindy is one of a kind photographer. She really loves what she does, and it shows through her work. From speaking over the phone about my husbands and my story to sending out forms to fill out to organize our day, Mindy thought of everything! She takes her time editing the pictures and the outcome is amazing! I have decorated my walls with her pictures and they all turned out beautifully no matter the size. I’ve made canvases, metal prints, wedding album and framed work. When I had questions even after our wedding about how to print, she helped me along the way. Mindy went above and beyond as a photographer and I am so grateful that she was there to capture our big day. She’s reliable, professional, kind and a joy to work with. I highly recommended Mindy as a photographer!
