Evan + Emily

(our story)

Emily and I met in the fall of 2012. I was living in Nashville at the time, and one of my best friends invited me up to Chicago for a Halloween get-together. Little did I know, his wife was also planning on setting up Emily and I — “they can just get drunk and make-out!” is how she likes to tell the story .. But as it turns out, we actually hit it off and spent the whole weekend together.

A couple days later I drove back to Nashville and knew Emily and I had something special. I knew I didn’t want to be 8 hours away from her. So after traveling back and forth between Nashville, Chicago, and eventually Indiana, we decided to get an apartment together in Chicago. This was a pretty big deal for me considering I had only lived with my parents and dudes my whole life .. but it was such an easy transition. I was (and still am) amazed by how much we balance each other.

Fast forward a couple years, and we drove across the country together. We ran a marathon together. We started this business together. We got married .. together. Now we cook a lot, still travel, and work hard to keep our business a true reflection of who we are, and how we see the world.

Marriage, love, and all the great stories of life fascinates us to no end. We love hearing everyone’s journey and listening to what you’ve been through: the hilarious stories, the highs and lows. We love connecting with new people and being there for the adventure and stress that comes from planning a wedding — believe us, we’ve been there, we know. We learn from each new person we meet.

Emily and I will always be on your side. We’ll always work our hardest to provide you with the best imagery we possibly can. Let’s hang out and be friends?
