When you hire us to capture the best day of your lives, we promise to always make you feel beautiful. (Because you are.) Our approach is a candid, documentary style that freezes those subtle, in-between moments so you’ll always remember how you felt that day. If you think you aren't good in front of the camera — you haven't worked with us yet.
Since we met as high school sophomores a decade ago, we have hiked more than 437 miles on trails around the world and raised a beautiful rescue dog who is the center of our attention. We live on a small farm with chickens, 2 pigs, and horses. Farm life helps keep us grounded and allows us to live a self-sustainable life.
What’s up! I’m True Story’s videographer and sometimes second shooter. I love movie nights, Rocket League, cars that go fast, and mountains. I started creating wedding films after a few years of being Katie’s second shooter/right-hand man and witnessing how she works and the joy she brings people.
I had never been outside Virginia until I met Katie and now my bucket list is a mile long. I can't wait to explore all the major world mountains-- Patagonia, Mount Everest, and more are on our travel list.
I’m not afraid to let you see my sensitive side and I admit that I sometimes tear up at weddings. I’m the funny one (at least Katie lets me think so). I am also a licensed officiant in the state of Virginia for those couples who choose an adventure elopement. There aren’t a whole lot of officiants who are willing to hike 8+ miles! FYI: If there is a dog at the wedding, please allow at least 20 minutes of petting time in the timeline for me.
Hello, lady! (Any Elvis Duran fans out there?) I’m a wedding and elopement photographer focused in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The Blue Ridge Mountains are my home base and I'm often exploring Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. While I’m based in the East Coast, I can’t contain my wanderlust. I've shot weddings in Ireland, Colorado, Montana, Georgia, and more. I love sweet tea, farm life, and the great outdoors. Working with horses since I was 8 means I’m not afraid to get dirty — during shoots you’ll often find me lying on the ground or climbing a tree to capture the best angles. Catch my personal adventures at @katie_jeanious.
If you’re looking for a photographer you can be totally, truly, 100% you in front of, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve seen it all. I get it. I’m cool if you’re cool. I believe in being more than just your photographer; I’ll have your back on a day when you have a million things to worry about. No matter what.
OUR HOME MOUNTAINS ARE THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS, PART OF THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL. IF YOU ARE ELOPING IN VIRGINIA--YOU'RE IN LUCK! WE KNOW THE BEST SPOTS TO CATCH THE BABY BLUES
