Meet Becky & Daniel Smyth!
When we got married in 2007, our only regret is that we didn’t hire a wedding photographer. (Well, that and the fact that we didn’t pick a reception spot with A/C!) We had a few friends bring their cameras and thought that would be good enough. Our photos are fine, they are enough to help us remember what happened, but they don’t fully capture US. What we have isn’t quite wall-worthy, except that’s all we’ve got.
We want more for you! You want to love your story, to love your photos and appreciate them years from now when you’re sharing stories with your grandkids gathered around. You will want your memories hung forever where you can see them to remember your beautiful day!
We’re more than just your wedding photographers.
We’re your personal assistant, pack mule, wedding planner, storytellers, friend who’ll tell you if you have spinach between your teeth, confidant, dress zipper-upper, director, and cat herders…
We bring loads of experience and wisdom we’ve gathered along the way to help you through the haze of wedding planning, orchestrating a thousand details, and pulling off a complicated party that you’ve never done before.
Your day is about You, and capturing exactly who you are as a couple entering this new season called marriage. That’s an exciting and important step, and we believe in making your dream come alive. The best weddings happen when the entire day radiates with your personality, instead of being stuck inside a circus of obligations and “this is what so-and-so” did.
Already know you want us on your team?
How Can We Help?
We’ve got 20 years of photography and event producing experience to help you plan your perfect day. We’d love to hear your dreams, and help turn them into reality.
We’ll capture every detail, catch you looking stunning, and make sure things run smoothly so that you have plenty of time to breathe and enjoy the day as it happens.
Why Wedding Photography?
We deeply value marriage and family and we see a special niche in the world of weddings where we can love our couples, help them to value their marriage, and build a solid foundation for the decades to come. Over the years of our own marriage, we’ve seen that our love for one another has grown as we grow more in love with Jesus. We want our couples (you!) to know and experience that same degree of love as you begin your life together.
How We Got Started:
We started as Daniel Smyth Photography in 2007. Daniel has photographed tons of creative entrepreneurs, regional businesses, magazine covers, and everything in between locally and internationally.
Becky has shot film since 1995 and knows how to tell exactly what a couple needs at every moment. She loves helping people feel comfortable no matter is going on.
