Wedding Photography

Documenting life's moments... Honoring the stories they tell

We created Narrative Images 10 years ago after studying photography and sociology in college.  Since then we have had the privilege to document hundreds of weddings across the U.S. and abroad. Narrative Images was born from the desire to produce photos that are real, authentic, and honest. We work to achieve this by tailoring our photojournalistic approach to each of our unique clients. Our photography has won awards and has been published in magazines, wedding blogs, as well as two books. After photographing hundreds of weddings and working with so many great people, our appreciation for weddings as a tradition and the beautiful moments they produce has only grown.
