Meet the Team

It is truly a privilege to be chosen to photograph one of the most important events in your life – your wedding.    Every wedding deserves a team of experienced photographers to capture the myriad of memorable moments you have orchestrated.  The Moreland team will be with you to document the beauty, excitement and drama of your day.

On your wedding day our lenses are focused upon what is important to you.  We use creative photography to capture your memorable moments, the beauty and details of your day.   Are family, friends and fun a key element in your wedding day experience?   Tell us about how your life has been impacted by them.  Why are they special to you?

We are a part of your story.

We shoot around 4,000 images per wedding. The first time you see your wedding images is a BIG DEAL.  We create a slideshow of your photographs and present them to you and your family on a big screen – kinda like a movie debut.  You will love it. Then we tell your story in a custom-designed (no templates), hand-crafted book to match your personalities and preferences.    Tell us your vision for your book – we will create it.

We love to tell your story with images.
