About

Bon Vivant Obscura Capturing the good life

Bon Vivant Obscura is a team of two photographers. Chuck loves to study health and is an animal rights activist, while Gregg simply likes to wake up at 4am to do his daily runs. The duo has a combined professional experience of 10 years in the photography industry. Working both domestically and abroad, they have captured the sights and sounds of this wonderful world. Having gone through these experiences, they realized that beautiful moments can be fleeting, and understood how vitally important it is to capture moments "frozen" in a photograph to be kept and cherished for all time.

Bon Vivant is a 17th century French term used to describe someone who is a "good liver," as in someone who enjoys the finer things in life; someone with exquisite taste in food, aesthetics and intellectual pursuits. Obscura is a Latin word that describes a dark empty box. The word "obscura" has been synonymous with cameras for ages. One of the earliest photographic devices was called the "Camera Obscura." Bon Vivant Obscura simply, captures the good life!

The duo's mission is to capture unique emotions, fleeting moments and essential details of your wedding day. The images taken will one day become an effervescent milestone of memories to remember throughout one's life. It is only when the dust has settled and the tears have dried from our eyes, that we truly realize the beautiful moments that have passed before us. We look at photographs, recall emotions, and relive memories that touch our hearts. The photographs taken by Bon Vivant Obscura will be portholes to a time when we found ourselves victorious and love was celebrated.

Bon Vivant's team will capture your day until the very last laugh has been cackled, the very last drop of wine has been sipped, and until the couple shares their last kiss of the night.

Your day is unique and special to us. Send us an email over at info@bvobscura.com and ask how we can be of service to you.

    would highly recommend BOV. I am very picky with what angle someone takes my photo in and I felt that the two photographers really listened with what I wanted from the photos. During the wedding, they didn't get in the way and were able to capture great moments! I feel so lucky that I was able to find these guys. It should be noted that they aren't cheap but you get what you pay for!

    We were very happy with the pictures we received from our wedding. Our wedding day was quite warm and Greg took plenty of beautiful, quality pictures (almost a thousand to be exact) with efficiency and accuracy so we didn't have to spend a lot of time in the sun after the ceremony as there was little shade. We received our pictures quickly and were very happy with the results. Would definitely
    use him again in the future and would recommend him to our friends and family.
