Hi, we're the Smiths!

But our friends call us Patrick and Christen! We are a husband and wife photography team, but first and foremost we’re best friends, Christ followers, and absolute believers in this adventure called marriage.

We don’t have the typical love at first sight story, and we spent the majority of our dating relationship long-distance. All of our Skype dates and road trips reminded us that moments are meant to be preserved, and that by photographing our time together we could hold onto the emotion and love we felt, recalling it anytime we wanted to.

When we’re not taking pictures, you can find us binge-watching Sci-Fi, hiking (even if it’s to the mailbox), cooking, reading, grocery shopping; basically as long as it includes one another, we’re game!

Christen's sweet, professional, easy to get a hold of and quick to respond. We hit it off right away during our shoot, which made it really easy and stress free for us during the whole process. She got a lot of amazing photos that capture us perfectly as a couple!
