About the Team

Rusty Wright

I grew up intrigued by photography, always carrying a camera and constantly researching the latest gear. When I used my photographs as a platform on which to travel to Guatemala in 2009, I found myself confronted by the possibility of making photographs professionally. A hobby I loved, over time, had transformed into a career than I now find myself adoring more and more.

I love the fact that I’m able to spend the majority of my weekends celebrating alongside couples in love. I’m terribly grateful for folks who entrust me with the special task of documenting such a time in their lives. I understand, first and foremost, that a wedding day isn’t about pictures, or even about a wedding; it’s about a marriage and the beginning of a story. So, truly, thank you for considering me in such a capacity.

On a more personal note, my other loves include my wife Lizzie, our son Linden, our pup Huck, country music, grilled cheese sandwiches, the mountains and good pie.

My love for photography started before I owned a camera. As a kid I studied the pages of action sports magazines, captivated by the ever-changing perspectives. I began making photos as a means to get into my musically-inclined friends’ performances, but soon found that with a camera in my hands, the best people were being placed in my path.

Having no formal training, I learn every day. I still frequent Barnes & Noble to sit with a cup of coffee and a fresh issue of Transworld Surf to keep me grounded and inspired. I did not start making photos in hopes of making money, but rather to capture and interpret the story of people about whom I care. Photographing weddings has become a passion as a result.

The story of every marriage is unique and special. It is a blessing to document the beginning of a life-long bond and join in the celebration of such a powerful day.

A note about your investment

Our collections start in the mid-$2,000s and our average couple spends right around $3,800 for coverage and high-resolution images. If you're not local, oftentimes an agreement that includes travel makes a lot more sense than folks may think (read: don't let a few extra miles between us keep you from reaching out). With that said, no two couples are the same, no two weddings are the same, and no dollar figure has ever come between us and the folks with whom we're meant to work. Thus, we offer collections that are customizable from the ground up – a process that starts with a candid conversation between us. To start that conversation, just drop us a quick line using our contact form.
