About

We are here because we love photography, weddings and people!

Our Photography
We capture the full experience. We dedicate our time and energy to one wedding per weekend, to what your day needs. We include two lead photographers and a photography coordinator who takes on all non-photo duties. We are photojournalists and artists. We capture... people being themselves, laughing with friends, dancing and reconnecting with family and friends; traditional and artistic angles of the ceremony and reception, group portraits in various locations, and the details you've carefully arranged. We don't limit the number of photos taken or produced; you get hundreds of pictures fully documenting your wedding.

Our Package
We have one, all-inclusive, package. Our couples appreciate not having to calculate from a menu of complicated products and end up finding the end price is well beyond their budget. We offer what couples tell us they want, for one simple price. The few extras we have are simple add-ons that have been frequently requested: an album/guestbook created from your "engagement" photos and/or a faux-leather upgrade for the album(s), and acrylic or metal wall prints. When we deliver your final products, you will know you got everything you wanted to document your wedding.

Our Team
Two lead photographers and a photography coordinator work together with you and your other wedding vendors to ensure an enjoyable, stress-free day, from morning to night. We take our couples' reviews to heart, and we have succeeded in improving our responsiveness to our clients by adding a photography assistant and committing more of Candice's time to the daily management of the business.

Preparation
We do extensive preparation in the months leading up to the wedding.
* Scouting all locations to review with you in advance (sun/rain, in/out...)
* Meeting with your wedding planner to finalize the photography schedule
* "Engagement" session to learn your personal style and goal for photos

Technical Skill
Our photographers are highly skilled in off-camera flash and are constantly researching and learning new techniques and updating our equipment. Throughout our 10 years of experience, we have evolved with the technology and the new skills needed to master it - ahead of the curve. We are scientists-turned-photographers, and weddings are the opportunity to incorporate innovation and creativity into a fun, social event!

Affinity sets themselves above the rest. I was on the hunt for a person who appreciates the art of photography. After looking at many portfolios online affinity's caught my eye. The affinity group made our wedding day fun and stress free. They had multiple shooters to catch every vantage point and angle ( without feeling in your face). As well as multiple types of lenses to grab the scene in different views. This was the best wedding decision I made. Sean and Candace even gave us a ride home after our wedding!! (We forgot the small detail of getting home.) Candace saved the day by helping me with my dress and Kiel was so friendly and easy going. All of our friends and family were blown away by our gallery of pictures! It was hard to pick out photos for the book. LOVE THIS GROUP! Would recommend in a heartbeat.

We first met with Sean and Candace based on their amazing photos featured on their website and blog, and after meeting with them we knew that we had to have them photograph our wedding. It was the best wedding decision we made!

Sean and his crew are a creative force to be reckoned with. If you’re looking for a vanilla wedding photographer who will document your event with plain, boing pictures, look elsewhere. Sean, Candace and Kiel captured the energy, essence and emotion from every minute (literally, from early morning until the very end) of our big day. Sean can capitalize on any opportunity – an interesting venue, unique vantage points, guests laughing with each other, pretty much anything - to create images that are not only memorable but beautiful and stunning. Affinity represents the perfect mixture of everything we wanted in photography and in photographers; a sense of fun, creativity and whimsy juxtaposed with an eye for style, class, detail and composition.

Sean and Candace really make it a point to get to know you as a couple, and they will take your own ideas and run with them when it comes to ideas for creative photography. They are as easy-going as can be, but they have the drive to get things done and stay focused (no pun intended) on the timeline throughout the hectic pace of the day.

Can’t recommend Affinity enough!

Sean Hoyt. Nuff Said! This guy is award winning. Crafty, creative, fun, and such an amazing photographer. I don't get to work with him often enough, but anyone who hires him for their wedding or event can't go wrong.
