Shelby & Jared

As a husband and wife team, we have the unique gift to work together to create a unified vision for our clients. Shooting in a way that is romantic and timeless, we bring our clients' stories to life and give them a legacy they can cherish forever.

When not working, you can find us in our wannabe farmhouse in Ozark, Missouri, spending time gardening or kayaking, or planning our next adventure. If you'd like to get to know us, we'd love to grab coffee with you! (In person or virtually!)

Jared

Shelby and I met and started dating while in college. She decided to teach me photography so that I could come along with her to some of her photoshoots. Fast forward a few years and we have been married for three years now! I am the lead videographer for our weddings, second shooter photographer, and also hold the title "carrier of all the bags."

Travel

There is nothing more refreshing to us than taking photos in a beautiful new place! From California to North Carolina, to traveling across the Midwest and even Europe, traveling fuels us to stay creative, be curious, and always be exploring. We love to vlog our adventures together and encourage others to live a life of travel!

east coast or west coast, united states or beyond, traveling the world is how we stay inspired!

Artistry

Art and design is a big part of where we are today. Jared minored in art in college, while Shelby worked as a writer and watercolor artist. Jared's background in graphic design, and Shelby basically thinks she's Joanna Gaines and styles everything in sight, so you could say that we have a huge passion for artistry and creating!

at the core of our business, we are artists, and we dig into this part of ourselves in every time we create

Summer Nights

We both love the summertime! Whether it's camping somewhere far away  or in our own backyard, we await the sweet heat of summer like nothing else. We enjoy hiking, tending to our garden, kayaking, going to drive-in movies, and spending as much time outside as we possibly can!

Is there anything better than laying in a hammock looking at the sunset on an August night?

Simple Living

Shelby grew up on a flower farm, and both Shelby & Jared come from generations of farmers. Together, we both share a love for a life of simplicity, finding the joy in the everyday, and cherishing what we have. We are both laid-back, and you can expect us to try to find the good in everything.

we believe that the best life we can live is a life that is true, simple, and honest.

Faith

If you follow us on Instagram, you know that faith is a big component of our lives. We believe that God is our truth–– He guides us in both life and business! We want our faith to permeate all that we do, including the work we give our clients for the best experience with us!

Faith changes everything, and God is the reason for our abundant blessings
