We're Brad & Jen

- Since -

- 2009 -

Weddings, Couples, Families

We met in 2009. We were in a film class that explored the question, “What is the good life?”

Most days we forget that our relationship began asking such a daunting question, but when we awaken ourselves to our past, that part of our story overwhelms us with thankfulness.

Over the last 10 years (whether we knew it or not) we pursued this question. We failed, we succeeded, we took really big risks, we fought, laughed, cried and in our short 10 years together found that the answer didn’t lie in any destination… but in the process of growing, learning, and finding joy in the small moments.

I suppose that’s why we’re here now. This really happy accident of becoming photographers emerged from fiercely chasing after “the good life” and finding it right in front of us - in the people we meet, the stories we’re welcomed into, and the moments witnessed and experienced.

This is the heart behind what we do. To create images that show it all. Our humanness in split seconds.

get to know us!

01

We knew we were going to marry one another before we said the words, "I love you."

02

We have 2 incredible boys that light up our lives, challenge our hearts, and bind us together. We love them so much.

03

We believe in 'no-phone' date nights, bold wine, and Italian gnocchi.

04

We're not big on TV, but we can take you to school in an Office trivia game.

The best meal we've ever eaten was in an obscure alley in Barcelona, Spain

Three things that make us feel alive

connection

Travel

Whether on the road, soaking in time with our family and friends, or practicing life giving hobbies, we love leaning into the simple joys of life and letting it change us from the inside out.

In 2016 we made a deal to start reading more books, playing chess, spending more time outdoors, or watching challenging documentaries. Where we used to expend energy scrolling Instagram and binging Netflix, we started practicing life-giving hobbies and it’s fueled our creative and emotional lives 10 fold.

Beyond our faith and our marriage, our hearts are wired to connect with others. Our community here in Nashville is a huge part of who we are and we are continually thankful for the soul connections with friends and couples alike we’ve built over the last 7 years.

We have a thirst for adventure and love experiencing new places and people together. Travel gives us distance from our lives and allows us to return to our home and our people full of life and experiences.

Who We Are

Meet Brad

famly man, film lover, ping pong enthusiast

One of the kindest, most genuine people I know–he doesn’t know a stranger. Brad is a northern boy with a love for the outdoors, a knack for finding new music, and a risk-taker at heart who tends to talk me into new and wild adventures like paragliding in the Swiss Alps.

The way he loves others is nothing short of inspiring to anyone who knows him. He’s always seeking a way to see the world differently through the lens.

If Brad had a free Saturday, he would wake up with a pour over and spin a record from our growing collection (thanks VMP). Then he’d grab a Wendell Berry novel and hammock and spend the afternoon in the park before dinner and bourbon (neat) at Rolf & Daughters with a few close friends.

Meet Jen

dreamer, table setter, journalist

Someday our kids will wake up to a stack of her journals, and the stories upon stories of her life will unfold into this beautiful mess of love, laughter, challenges, and victories.

Jen documents everything. Our home is full of new and old journals that bleed ink and shed paper. They’re full of her life’s thoughts, her ideas for raising our son, future paintings, dreams for new adventures across the world, what recipes she loves at the time (thank you Sprouted Kitchen), and how our couples inspire her marriage.

Jen is incredibly strong and wise and I love gleaning from her wisdom.

If Jen had a free Saturday, she would wake up with a pour over, a tasty brunch and good book, followed by an afternoon of kayaking and hanging with friends the backyard under bulb lights.

BRE & BILLY

Our entire experience with you two was so wonderful. Everything that you guys stand for and pride yourself on turned out to be SO true in the most natural way. I think the best way to put it is in your own words "we don't want you to say the photographers are here we want you to say Brad & Jen are here!" that is exactly how we felt and we are so grateful. From our first conversation you made the entire process fun & memorable and always kept us focused on what really matters - US! Of course we LOVED our photos - both engagement and wedding but the impact you left on us and the thoughtful words you shared are what we remember most.
