heartfelt weddings

wedding imagery by 

Emily & James layne

We've been photographing wedding celebrations together for over 10 years years. We're inspired by editorial & documentary images and a very relaxed way of photographing. We spend our days as a family in the woods, chasing our half-naked children through the local rivers and creeks. We enjoy meals shared with loved ones and are always striving to savor the moments we have together.  Our style is very organic and natural ensuring our couples truly live and enjoy their wedding day comfortably. We flow between  the raw and unposed moments as well as gently, naturally guided direction to provide you with a wedding gallery filled with emotion and joy.  

We work with couples passionate about life, celebration, and art. Our goal during our time shared with you is to create lasting memories through presence, connection and love while you enjoy the celebration.

(oh, if you're curious about the name Ivan & Louise, it's our middle names! James Ivan & Emily Louise.)




for tomorrow, but also for today.

Beauty in the unscripted 

We truly hope through planning and preparation, we're able to help you relax into your day, and enjoy the special time you'll have with your loved ones. We want you to enjoy and artfully plan your day and then let it all go, connect with everyone present on your day, and simply have a great time.  We'll take care of making imagery rich in connection, vulnerability, and presence that you'll cherish for the rest of your days.


We will document what's in front of us while giving you the freedom to be yourself, relish in how that feels and leave with imagery that takes you right back.

If you are present-focused with your loved ones, value art, connection, and uniqueness, and simply want to marry your best friend and have a good time, then we think you've found the right photographers.

Creativity

We stand strong in our beliefs and when the couples we work with feel the same, we're able to make the most honest images together with a deeper connection. Images that reflect much more than their appearances. Images that tell the stories of their lives, unique souls, connections, and love.
