We met in beautiful central California back in 2005 while we were both military photographers in the Air Force.  After becoming best friends, we  realized we were madly in love and have been married for 13 years.  We have 5 beautiful children and a diva dachshund named Oswald.  We live in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina but try to travel somewhere every other month. 

Nicole spent 8 years as a military photographer,  specializing in photojournalism, forensics and medical.  

Deno spent 20 years as a military photographer, specializing in photojournalism, combat and aerial documentation.  

We have spent the past 6 years capturing weddings and couples.  

Nicole + Deno: photojournalists

We are suckers for real, intimate, honest love.  We think real moments are the best ones.  Our style is all about getting real, honest emotions, and natural photos.  Of course we'll step in to tweak where you need a little guidance or help, but we do our very best to make sure you feel comfortable and can forget the camera as much as possible.  Our style is more about getting you interacting with each other, rather than a lot of really formal posing.  We want to capture all that your story is.  We hope that your eyes catch the spirit of our work and that your heart catches the value and meaning within the photos.
