Ralph Deal

Lead Photographer

"It’s truly inspiring and a gift to make an impact in people’s lives the way I do. I want to be able to do the same for you!" - RD

Drawing inspiration from music, fashion, and cinema, Ralph photographs weddings in the most subtle, intimate, and alluring way that calls attention to the beauty in timeless elegance. Artfully creating contemporary, yet classic images that convey the true love stories of their couples in a genuine and soulful way.

Ralph’s work is highly moving display of moments and details that you might otherwise miss, creating memories that you will love to return to as you revisit the images over the years.


Kristen Catoe

Associate Photographer

My name is Kristen Catoe and I am utterly drawn to joy. Smiles, laughter, the giggles... of course! But honestly, I'm chiefly attracted to the mundane, hard work, daringly romantic, consciously chosen, diving in with both feet kind of sacrificial happy. The kind of joy you're striving for as you plan your wedding day. See, you and I both know that life is hard work and love doesn't always come easily. But there is such beauty and jovial-sing-song-magic when we pause life's chaos to gather each other up and savor the scope of all there is to be grateful for.

Maybe that's why I adore weddings so much and have saturated my life in them for over 15yrs now, first in the event planning capacity and for the last five years, as a photographer. On your wedding day I'll bring my experience and knowledge as a published wedding photographer along with a whole lot of camera gear. But mostly, I'm there to be your biggest, third-wheeling cheerleader. Your wedding is about you and about your love. And it is nothing but a humbling honor to step into your world and beautifully seek out and document all that makes you both uniquely, wholly, simply you.
