YOU ARE LOVE CAUGHT ON FIRE, EMBERS BURNING WARM AND SPARKS DANCING UP TO THE MOON.

• • •

Your wedding day is a celebration of your adventure. A day to be surrounded by the ones you love the most who sustained you along the way. They are your tribe, and we want you to think of us as part of this awesome society of support. We are here for you, truly.

Planning a wedding can sometimes feel overwhelming and confusing, and we want to make it as easy for you as possible. The way we make this process as easy as possible is we ask for you to put your full trust in us as not only your photographers, but as artists who have a unique vision for capturing love, moments, people and documenting a wedding day. With this trust we will give you our full hearts, our unadulterated creativity and nothing but love and care with your dearest memories and the essence of the people dearest to your hearts.

The couples we work best with are the couples who just let us create without any expectations, who just let us fully immerse ourselves in their day without any direction. They are couples with hearts full of love and openness to our process. Couples who just trust in our vision, let go and run with our style of photography. Our style is very hands off, unposed, and natural so we can create images that truly represent your day and the love you truly share. We want you to look at your wedding photos and the portraits of the two of you together, and be transported back to that very day and to have all of those amazing feelings take a hold of your heart all over again so you can see the essence of the love you share together. If our style sounds perfect for you, your day, and you are willing to give us all of your trust then we'd absolutely love to tell your love story and show you just how amazing your love truly is.

WE BELIEVE

• • •

In choosing the road less traveled. In early morning walks in the woods to catch the sunrise, and staying up past our bedtime to catch fireflies. In collecting experiences, not things. We believe in the intangible, the memories, the adventure. We believe in you, and your love, and we are so happy you are here.

From Our Past Couples

"We honestly cannot say enough about Jill & Ryan. They are a rarity in the world of wedding photographers- they truly love what they do, care so deeply about their couples, and that reflects in their insanely gorgeous work. We knew we didn't want the "traditional" wedding photos, and hoped to capture the love from our day in an organic way. Looking through their portfolio, I knew that their style would be perfect for us and our venue. From our first meeting, we felt an instant connection with Jill & Ryan, and knew they were the ones we wanted to work with. When we finally met them for our engagement session, it felt like we had known them for years. We also loved the fact that Jill & Ryan are a husband and wife team, as they have a truly special connection and their love for one another is just infectious. We felt so incredibly comfortable in front of their lenses that we could have kept shooting for hours. On our wedding day, Jill was the calming presence that I so needed and Ryan made sure all the guys looked perfect...and were on time! They were able to capture exactly what we wanted--even the shots we didn't know we wanted--with very little posing or direction, and kept us laughing the entire time. And when our photos came back....tears on tears. We just keep looking at the photos again and again. They truly captured all the emotions from the day, and we love getting to relive those feelings and have the memories that we'll cherish forever. Each photo is more gorgeous than the next, and our friends and family keep commenting on how strikingly beautiful and unique our pictures are. Beyond the photography, Jill & Ryan were just so easy to work with, so responsive and attentive to any questions we had---even non-wedding related travel questions! We honestly felt like they were close friends and are just so thankful that they captured our day. We could not imagine working with anyone else and honestly could not be happier that we chose Jill & Ryan!" -Tayrn & Jason

"Jill and Ryan are the BEST! From the moment we had our initial meeting on skype and even through now, 2.5 months after our wedding, our photos have been seamless. We did our engagement photos about a year before the wedding and immediately were comfortable with Jill and Ryan, and how they made us feel comfortable on camera. Fast forward to our wedding day and I'm not sure how anything would have gotten done without them. They ran the show and kept us on schedule (very kindly even when we were falling behind at times) and captured every single moment. Our pictures our breathtaking, everything I wanted in wedding photos. I really wanted to capture the beautiful landscape and they did just that. Every single photo was edited beautifully to be the best version of itself. They were so awesome to work with and did such an amazing job. Ryan and Jill are the golden standard for wedding photographers!" -Laura & Greg

"When I got engaged, the first vendor on my list that I wanted to book was my photographer. As a photographer myself, it was imperative that the photographers I chose had not only the aesthetic that I was looking for, but the kind of personality that I would want surrounding me on my wedding day and the days leading up to it. My husband and I must have had calls with at least a dozen photographers, but when we got off the phone with Jill and Ryan, we knew we had something. Their imagery is out of this world-- moody and deeply emotional, and strikingly beautiful-- but their personalities simply clicked with ours. We immediately decided to book them for our wedding day, and it was hands-down the best decision we made. They are an incredibly awesome duo, who make you feel beyond at ease when the camera is clicking away. And the best part is that they genuinely care about the love you're sharing with your significant other-- they ask you questions about the other, and have you truly connect. It is so evident from their photos that they capture such a unique perspective of love, and that's because Jill and Ryan can bring that side out of a couple. On the wedding day, they were pleasant and easy-going, and at times felt like an additional wedding planner because they were so helpful. We enjoyed the months of planning with them, and truly felt like we became friends. If you are craving photos that evoke beautiful emotion and want two unbelievably calming presences on your wedding day, HIRE THEM. You will have strikingly gorgeous images that you can hold close to you for the rest of your lives - and, most likely, two new friends!" - Karen & Paul

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

• • •

If we are having a small wedding, do you offer custom packages?

If you are having a small wedding and are looking for less than 4 hours of coverage, please let us know. We’d love to see if we’d be a good fit for your wedding and send you more information. 

 

Can you tell us about your payment schedule?

We require a $1,500 non-refundable deposit at the time of contract signing which holds your wedding date. Your remaining balance may be paid in increments or in a lump sum, as long as the entire package is paid-in-full 14 days prior to your wedding. We will provide you with a receipt via email for each payment. For photo sessions we require a 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve your date, the remaining balance is due on or before the day of your session.

 

Do you use film or digital?

Digital photography is the medium that we love to use to capture your most precious wedding day moments. It allows us to tell your story in a way we love and finish the images with the coloring and look that is true to our style.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE EXPECT OUR PHOTOS TO BE DONE?

Your weddings photos will be completed around 12 weeks after your wedding date. For a sessions, photos will be completed in about 5 weeks.

WE LOVE YOUR STYLE, AND ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW TRADITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS. IS THIS AN OPTION?

Traditional portraiture is something that we do for every wedding. Even though you are considering hiring us as your creative wedding day photographers, we still want to provide you with images of friends and family members that you can pass down for generations, plus parents and grandparents love these images. So we ask our couples to put together a formal photo list so we can create simple, clean portraits of you with these special people in your life.

 

Do you offer additional coverage?

Our engagement session option can also be used as coverage for your rehearsal dinner, day after session, or any day after wedding actives that might be planned. We will be there to continue telling your wedding day story, and the hi-res images will be delivered along side your wedding images. There maybe additional travel charges if you are looking for more coverage depending on your wedding location.

 

We would love to hire you! What are the next steps?

We love talking via FaceTime or Skype with all of our potential couples about their wedding day photography and other expectations. It is just another opportunity to get to know one another to ensure we’re the perfect fit for you and your day. After our meeting, and once you send us an email confirmation that you'd like to book us we will send you a wedding contract, after your contract is signed you can mail a check for the $1,500 non-refundable retainer. This will hold your date so that no one else can book it.

More From Our Past Couples

"When I started my wedding vendor search, I knew picking the photographer had to be one of the first decisions. Jill and Ryan wanted to hear all about my now husband and I and how we met and seemed genuinely interested in our love story. Jill and Ryan are one dynamic couple. It was like working with a couple of your close friends who are full of ideas, crazy talented, and ready for anything. We did an engagement session with them which I highly recommend so you can get used to having your photo taken. The photos are stunning and totally different from a lot of our friend's engagements and weddings. The day of my wedding I was a lot more nervous than I thought I would be and Jill was there with anything I needed. I almost felt like she was my wedding planner. They are super quick to respond, extremely flexible, and on the most important day of your life.... they are the definition of reliable. I love my engagement photos and cannot wait to see my wedding photos. Pick them- it'll be the best decision you make ( other than your life partner...)" - Bailey & Mark

"When we connected with Jillian and Ryan from With Love & Embers before our wedding, we knew we were off to a good start. They are truly a delight to work with. They were both so cool and professional, but made us feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed, which lead to some beautiful moments that they captured brilliantly "on film". With very little direction from my husband and me, Jillian and Ryan were still able to capture EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED for our wedding photos. The photos that we received are magical and brought us right back into the moment of our wedding. I will always be grateful for the amazing work of Jillian and Ryan and will cherish the beautiful memories they captured for us." - Lynne & Keith

"Almost a year later and we still get happy chills looking at the photos from our wedding day. The moment we saw the work With Love & Embers had done we knew we had to have them for our wedding. Not only do they both have an amazing eye, but their team work and kindness radiates from them - they are not the stuffy photographers that get in you or your guests way (you know what I'm talking about!). While Ryan spent the few hours prior to the wedding with the groom and boys, Jillian came to my parents house as I got ready. A little nervous and stressed hoping everything would go smoothly, Jillian was the perfect piece of calm I needed that morning. She captured amazing shots without me even realizing she was taking photographs, and honestly I felt like I had another friend there to get ready with. When we received our photos With Love & Embers exceeded our expectations (and we're picky!) and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. You spend so much time and hard work planning this special day, there is no question that these two will take care of capturing your day in the most perfect way." - Katy & Mike
