“If the photographs don’t already speak for themselves, I will be the first to tell you that Martine and her team are wonderful at what they do. We selected the package that includes 2 photographers and an engagement shoot and every dollar we paid was worth it. Martine, Vania, and Jessie were calm, creative, and an absolute joy to work with. Our engagement photos turned out wonderfully and the preview gallery of wedding photos that Martine sent us less than a week after our special day did not disappoint. We can’t wait to view our full gallery and see what the team was able to capture for us!”
Our new venture is coming soon!
Love & Story Collective will be our new brand for wedding photography.
4 years ago, I needed a second shooter for a wedding at Rocky’s Lake Estate in Woodstock, Georgia that my previous second shooter was unable to work. She recommended Vania as her replacement and that is how this story begins. Since then Vania and I have worked over 100 weddings together and become the best of friends. Since we so often work our weddings together, it only made sense for us to start a new joint brand for our wedding photography. And that is how Love & Story was born.
Weddings Vania and I have shot together.
Our styles are seamless. We go together like peas and carrots.
Our goal is to up our game even more. More personalized service, more creativity, more options, just be so much more.
Our wedding photography package structure will be slightly different because we have new associates we have been training. We’ll be able to be more flexible and offer more services.
With two full-time experienced lead photographers to help guide you through the wedding photography process, you can expect an amazing boutique experience. We can help with any questions you have and are here to help relieve some stress.
We’ll make your day fun, while still creating beautiful images for you and keeping the day running smoothly.
Our style will be seamless with what you have come to expect from me and hopefully even get more amazing. You’ll still be getting the same organic, natural, romantic style with all the sun flare and use of light we can come up with. Eventually, hopefully sooner than later, we will have an on staff videography team. And beyond that we hope to have a physical studio, office and meet up space with other vendors on site for you to have an opportunity to meet with and possibly hire for your big day. Which is where the “collective” part of our new name get its legs. We would love to have a community of photographers, videographers, planners, bakers, florists, djs and caterers that have all worked together that you can choose from to work with your venue. It’s a long term goal, maybe like a three year plan. We have dreams of cute house for our office/studio with multiple offices for different vendors. We’d love for it to have a cute kitchen to meet in and have coffee, a beautiful living room for lifestyle shoots, a gorgeous bedroom for those bridal boudoir shoots, and an area for studio shoots. Oh and of course a picturesque outdoors to use for shoots too! It’s a big dream, and this is the first step. Vania and I will be business partners, but more than that we will be an amazing team to make your wedding day complete.
