“If you are looking for wedding photographers, look no further.”
Anna C. 2022 Bride
"Their personalities are so warm that it was easy to be comfortable in front of the camera with them. Finally, the photos that we received were AMAZING. They were both great at thinking of fun shots to take and it really paid off."
Olivia C. 2021 Bride
"There is truly no one better than Rayleen and Tim. The photos Rayleen and Tim take are truly a work of art. They make everything look like absolute perfection and capture such stunning moments. They are so creative and do so well at making you feel so comfortable behind the camera. I loved each and every photo they took during our wedding and engagement shoot and I look at our photos often. I feel so lucky and blessed that I had a photography team as amazing as Rayleen and Tim. They are it for me! I will use them again and again in the future"
Amanda K. 2022 Bride

North Stonington, Connecticut
"They are so kind, professional, and caring - the type of people that feel like friends right after you meet them. Our day would note have been nearly as amazing if it weren't for them, the perfect combination of candid and posed pictures - the moments they captured that day, when we saw our photos, it was like getting to experience the whole day over again, the emotions, laughter, and excitement."
Kate C. 2021 Bride
Tavern at the Park
"Rayleen and Tim are phenomenal. I cannot sing their praises enough - I tell every person who is in need of a photographer about them. If you are looking for photographers that will capture every moment (big and small), that will capture all the special shots/poses you want, and have their own creative ideas - look no further. They will be my photographers for every event or special moment."

Where do you photograph and what are your travel fees?
We photograph worldwide! We do not charge any travel fees for anywhere in New England and parts of New York. For destination weddings, reach out and we'll go over pricing. We offer extremely competitive and affordable destination wedding pricing! We live for adventure and love to travel the world!
What equipment do you use?
Our wedding photography kit consists of a pair of top of the line Nikon D5's, high end Nikon, Sigma, and Tamron lenses with both primes and zooms to get the most out of every situation. Our backup camera is a high-end Nikon D810. It's there but never used, the D5 is a workhorse and a tank that never fails which ensures nothing can go wrong. Photography has so much to do about lighting, it is behind almost every award winning shot we've taken, so along with this we bring 6 various wireless flashes with large or small modifiers that we can tuck in corners or throw on 15 foot light stands; additional to our on camera standalone flashes. Since there are always 2 professional photographers, Rayleen and Tim, any setup is a breeze and unnoticeable. We know what is needed and when so everything is ready when it's needed. Even heavy sandbags so our light stands don't crash on your lovely wedding guests. :). Of course rounding out the kit is a bag full of spare batteries, chargers, memory cards and other possibly needed items.
Do you have backup photographers?
We've never needed them but we have them if absolutely necessary! Our backups are comparable to us and also a part of prestigious award-winning photography groups. We love em but we don't use them unless the world is ending!
How much is it going to cost and what is your payment schedule?
We have different wedding pricing for each and every couple to fit their perfect day! We know it's not a one-size-fits-all. We go over your schedule and decide together what will fit your day best! We offer discounts for military, teachers and nurses.
To reserve your wedding date, it's 1/3 of the total for a non-refundable deposit and a signed contract. Then we're all yours! The remaining balance is due the day of. We take pretty much any form of payment other than Monopoly money.
