We are a husband and wife photography team based in the Bay Area. We document weddings in the style of fine art photojournalism. That means we give you just the right amount of art direction that keeps you feeling comfortable enough to let your true emotions shine through. We also stay behind the scenes when the time is appropriate, as those “in-between” moments are the ones we love the most. Ultimately, we want you to feel comfortable on the happiest day of your life, because, hey, you deserve the best.
We create photographic art using film and digital mediums to capture your emotions. Tim and I are old school when it comes to photographs, and we would love every family to have gorgeous images that your children’s children can hold and tell stories about.
Our bags are always packed, and would absolutely love to make your nuptials our next adventure. Hit us up, we are excited to meet you!

They'll capture the true you
Michaela and Tim felt like friends the moment we met them--which was on our wedding day because we live in NYC and got married in SF. They made it all easy, from planning to posing. They truly brought out the true "us" WHILE making us look great! The results aren't just any wedding with our faces copy/pasted in. They could only be us. They'll give you the same experience and capture who YOU and your fiance(e) are. We highly recommend them!Sent on 01/02/2020

Photographers make the wedding
Michaela and Tim were such a joy to work with, they made every moment feel so special and so exciting on the day of the wedding. They arrived and got right to work and made my husband and I feel so calm on a day with such a whirl wind of emotions. They were also really great at keeping everyone around us SUPER excited about the fact that WE JUST GOT MARRIED. There were a few points during the day where I as the bride wanted to feel so stressed, but Michaela and Tim, made sure that did not happen. They kept my husband and I smiling and laughing all day long, they also captured every single special moment and their photos are MAGIC. We are in love and can't believe how lucky we were to find Michaela and Tim, they were the PERFECT dynamic duo! They created and captured memories we will now never forget because of their art!Sent on 07/10/2019

Michaela and Tim are truly something special. The biggest thing that stood out about them was that I felt like they truly want to get to know the couples they are photographing. And that was very important to us. Right off the bat when I reached out to Michaela, she asked to set up a phone call. Other vendors simply sent us email responses with photo packaging prices. Michaela was different, and our phone conversation was different.Sent on 11/04/2018
She didn’t just want to know where or when the wedding would be, but she asked questions about me, about us as a couple. And that kind of vibe carried through the entire year up to the wedding. Michaela and Tim are such an adorable couple, and are so easy to get along with and that helped so much with taking photos. Naturally we are super awkward in front of the camera, but M+T made things so easy and comfortable.
Responses were prompt, whether it was via email, text, or phone call. Everything was so professional and so organized that I never had to worry or stress about photography – they had everything covered! Michaela even planned out timeline details to the T with my venue when it came to pre-reception photos (she’s the real MVP!) Michaela and Tim are so fun and easy to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone! You will NOT be disappointed. You not only get amazing photos, but you also gain friends. (We had told them we were going to Bali for our honeymoon and Michaela put us in contact with friends they have living out there. Talk about going above and beyond!) Thank you M+T for being a part of our special day, and for all your amazing hard work. We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!
