The past 15 years have taught me a thing or two about what you likely want in a photographer. And over that time I’ve learned that having a great connection with your photographer is precisely how you’ll forget about the camera and simply be yourselves. So, that’s how I like to begin.
We’ll spend some time getting to know one another, and I’ll discover who and what is important to you. This understanding will allow me to deliver images that not only look like you but feel like you too.
Then, I’ll approach your wedding as a journalist - photographing your biggest moments and joy-filled emotions while actively seeking out the little things that you won’t always get a chance to see. I’m equally confident giving you direction to make sure you’re relaxed, comfortable and look your best. And at the same time, I know when I need to take a back seat and let a moment naturally unfold.
And because I recognize that your wedding day isn’t a photo shoot, I’ll aim to capture your day perfectly as possible without monopolizing all your time. After all, you’ve intentionally invited your family and friends, and you deserve to have time to celebrate with them.
It’s real damn hot out there today so let’s cool off with some NYE wedding vibes shall we? I’ve known Emily for a bajillion years, well ok not exactly that long but over a decade for sure. Her and Dane could quite literally be described as two peas in a pod, they just go together like pb&j. Not only are they both incredibly fun to spend time with but the friends and family they’ve got in their lives made their wedding day one of the most palpably joyous occasions I’ve ever experienced at a wedding.
We had so much fun getting to know Josh and Emily for their incredible Como Conservatory wedding with the ceremony in the Enchanted Garden. Family quite literally flew in from all over the world as Josh’s family is from Nigeria. They perfectly incorporated some of those Nigerian traditions into the wedding with a finale of the whole family and wedding party donning the fabulous green and gold Nigerian clothing for a grand entrance that lead into group dance and cash throw down. The guys even made time to walk down to the amazing Barrel Theory (a must go if you haven’t) brewery for a cold one before heading to the venue. All in all, a real kick ass of a day and we’re so happy for them!

In the course of showing friends and family the photos from our wedding, someone remarked “I looked through the whole thousand photos and it brought me RIGHT back to that moment. I felt like I was there.” I don’t think you can have a more ringing endorsement for a wedding photographer! 10/10 would recommend Adam and Mary Beth again and again. These two are just so lovely to work with AND the product is incredible. The process to get AKP booked was easy and clear, they accommodated all our requests and out of the box ideas, and Adam’s excitement about his work brings an energy that made both engagement photos and our wedding day so fun. So many people remarked that they just enjoyed being around Adam and Mary Beth during our wedding day, and I think the organization and relaxed, joyful energy they brought really shows in our photos. Not to mention, they kept myself and my husband calm and giddy all day. And I cannot state enough that our photos are incredible. Someone told me they are the best wedding photos she has ever seen! We can’t recommend AKP highly enough!
