About

NO STAGED NONSENSE. JUST REAL MOMENTS.

We are Michael and Jenna Beard. We are documentary wedding photographers who love telling visual stories. Our number one goal is to give you a special connection to your wedding images, because they are real people in real moments with genuine emotions. Nothing staged, fake, or cheesy.

Your wedding day will not feel like one big photo shoot. Our hands-off approach allows you the freedom to not even think about photography. You will actually get to go to your wedding - enjoy getting ready with friends, be fully present during your ceremony, mingle with guests during cocktail hour, dance all night at the reception. We capture what's happening as the story unfolds in front of us.

Creative Photos!

Jenna and Michael are a phenomenal team. I so enjoyed having them as our photographers! Both were extremely professional, caring, and kind, and we received so many compliments from our guests. We can’t wait to see our photos! Based on Michael’s acrobatics and Jenna’s kind instructions, I know they will be phenomenal.

The most amazing photographers, hands down

We are so beyond happy that we chose Michael and Jenna as our photographers. My husband and I have both said multiple times since our wedding day that they were the best decision we made. They made the entire day so much more enjoyable, and managed to catch every important moment. They both have an incredible eye, and are incredibly professional. Thank you, Michael and Jenna!

Michael & Jenna are the BEST!

We hired the Beards for our engagement photos in October 2018. They instantly made you feel like you've known them forever and had really creative ideas about our photos and location. We hired them in November 2019 for our wedding as well. Jenna and Michael got married at the same venue we did! Honestly the best photos I have ever seen! I've gotten so many compliments on their wedding photos. We can't thank them enough! :)
