In second grade, Cam sported frosted tips and Tia was rarely seen wearing no less than 6 different bright colors (unless of course it was her signature 100% hot pink outfit). The two of us were students at Jonathan Elementary, a spot where sixteen years later Cam proposed to Tia. In September 2016, we were married at Birch Hill Barn on the most perfect fall day. Our childhood friend pronounced us husband and wife, Tia’s grandma was our flower girl (flower crown and all), and we shared our first dance to “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes. We now live in the ‘burbs in our little yellow house where the sun shines through the towering trees and there is always someone to loan you sugar. We spend our time together chasing after our puppy Bella, driving the North Shore with the windows down and Bon Iver blasting, or cuddled on the couch with The Office in the background planning our next adventure.
Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go
Our first unofficial date happened the summer before our senior year of high school. We sat out on a dock basking in the warm sun as Cameron tutored Tia in math for the upcoming ACT. By the time spring rolled around, we went to our senior prom together and the rest was history.
We didn't set out to be entrepreneurs. Cameron was an attorney and Tia was a dance teacher until we tried to make a serious go at photography. Through building deep connections with our clients and hustling to make their wedding days full of joy, our business took off.
Now, most days you'll find Cameron editing away in our home office with Tia on the couch serving our couples and dreaming up new adventures. After the work day, you can find us at happy hour enjoying sushi and all the fruity drinks or at home in our little yellow house cuddled up with our puppy Bella. We live for tickles in the kitchen, trips to Hy-Vee, and celebrating every win with our handshake.
Helping people in the industry is a passion of ours, and we absolutely love to help guide, encourage, and teach people to use photography to their fullest potential! This is why we offer mentoring sessions, freebies, and courses (coming soon) to help educate others!
We are humbled and honored each and every time an entrepreneur reaches out for a mentorship opportunity. Let the coffee dates, friendships, and growing together begin!
