We know, without a doubt, that each couple has their own beautiful love story and amazing adventure to write. With this belief so strongly written on our hearts, Brandon and I find it essential to capture the uniqueness of each and every couple we document. To do this, we invite you into our tiny a-frame home studio for a "Wine, Hummus + Chocolates" wedding consultation so we can get to know you and your love story. We cherish when this goes beyond having just a client/photographer relationship. We love when our clients become friends.
Cultivating real relationships with our clients is what makes it all work. What people see on social media are highly curated moments, often depicting an idea of perfection, but when the camera is down—connecting with clients— is what propels our dreams forward.
Unlike many other wedding photographers, we limit the number of weddings we book each year. We take on 24 weddings each year. Being exclusive wedding photographers has nothing to do with being too busy or unable to handle the business. But it has EVERYTHING to do with providing the best possible service to our couples while staying immensely passionate about what we do.
We don’t take a couple’s wedding day lightly. In everything we do, we dedicate our whole selves to the process. When we commit to a wedding day, we are not just committing to that day. We are committing to the weeks and months leading up to the wedding and the countless number of decisions it takes. Capturing the exact moment your husband-to-be sees you in your wedding dress for the First Look can only happen once.
We strongly believe that wedding day photos are one of THE MOST IMPORTANT and priceless heirlooms the couple will have after their day. For us, the honor of photographing a couples’ wedding day is truly one of the most rewarding parts of our lives. The friendships and experiences that we create last far beyond the wedding day.
"We love the Horns! After working with this husband and wife team on now three occasions, they have been absolutely amazing each time and deserve all the praise!
We met the Horns at a wedding convention and then decided to use them for our photos and wedding video, as well as completing a recent anniversary shoot with our dog. They are true professionals and clearly love what they do. Not only do they take beautiful photographs, but they have such good honest souls and instantly put my husband and I at ease when we did our first shoot with them for our engagement. I am awkward and do not at all feel natural with a camera pointed at me but they were able to demonstrate poses for us to recreate, a HUGE advantage to working with a married team.
Brandon is hysterical and keeps us laughing during the shoot and Michelle is just the sweetest and her creative angle leads to some really unique photos that I can’t believe she even thought of! Michelle is so detailed and organized and was a core factor for making me feel like we were totally covered from every angle, despite the craziness of wedding planning. Not a detail was missed and I am an absolute stickler for attention to detail. Working with them was by far the easiest part of our wedding planning and we recommend them to anyone, without a doubt!"
but they have such good honest souls"
"Not only do they take beautiful photographs
"These two are incredible! I love how the photos turn out and how delightful they are to work with! They are so good at making things less awkward and bringing out the genuine love and laughter in their photos! They did our engagement shoot, wedding, AND Michelle helped me with a boudoir shoot for my husbands wedding gift! All wonderful experiences and beautiful photos!
My husband HATES taking pictures, but they were able to stay true to us (most important), keep us laughing, and give instruction to make taking the photos fun for him.
I should also add that my husband LOVED the boudoir book! Michelle was fabulous for the boudoir shoot, she had a playlist ready and lots of ideas for posing. She made me feel very comfortable and kept it classy and beautiful!"
"I love how the photos turn out and
and how delightful they are to work with!"
"From the engagement pics to the wedding day, we thoroughly enjoyed working with the Horns. They take the time to meet with couples before and after the wedding for a consultation and photo reveal, making the experience extremely personal. From other couples I've talked to, this is extremely rare! Through this 1:1 time, they truly got to know us as a couple and made us feel extremely comfortable during the photo shooting sessions. As a couple who is not used to staged pictures, they were able to capture our personalities and laughter.
On our wedding day, they were extremely professional, knew exactly how to guide us, our bridal party, family, and our fur baby. We've received many compliments from friends and family that these were the best wedding pictures they have ever seen. Not to mention they are a joy to work with and made the process so personal. We would highly recommend working with them!"
this is extremely rare!"
"From other couples I've talked to,
"Brandon and Michelle are amazing photographers and people. From the moment we filled out their survey, I knew I wanted them to document our day. That feeling was solidified when we first met them--I just knew they were special. I'm not usually one to be comfortable in front of a camera, but Brandon and Michelle made our engagement session so fun and made us feel so cherished as a couple that my now husband actually paid for a second engagement session as a gift to me. We enjoyed every minute we spent with them, especially on our wedding day--that's important, to me, because you don't want just anyone sharing and documenting those intimate moments. We were happy and blessed to share those moments with Brandon and Michelle--these people are professional, personal, and...because obviously this is important, take BEAUTIFUL pictures.
Everything turned out so well and our videos will be watched over and over for years to come. Can't recommend them enough!!!"
I just knew they were special."
"When we first met them
"It doesn't get better than this team. Both Michelle and Brandon love what they do. Not only are they strong in their faith, they also are a strong team!
We did engagement pictures and wedding pictures with them. EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE, who has seen them absolutely loves them! From the wine/cheese consultation to the brunch/dinner final meeting to view your wedding photos, every single thing is thought out with pure love. If I could've hired Michelle as a wedding planner, I would've...she kept checking in on me as we got closer to our wedding date to make sure we were doing well.
I can go on and on....but every bride needs to seriously consider this husband/wife team."
with pure love."
"Every single thing is thought out
"I cannot express how much I loved having Horn Photography and Design for my wedding. From the beginning I knew that I was in great hands working with them. Our consultation was so comfortable and organic. They wanted to know about our love. We could tell that they were passionate about wedding photography, it wasn't just about the financial aspect. We also did our engagement shoot with them and we had a blast. They knew the perfect places and gave us plenty of options. Michelle stayed in contact with me the entire time. When it came to the wedding, they were phenomenal! They worked with our wedding coordinator so well! Everything went so smoothly. The entire team stayed on schedule and our wedding party loved them! They have the best vibe and are worth every penny! I am so thankful for the Horns, they were a huge part of making my wedding the best day ever!"
they were a huge part of making my wedding the best day ever!"
"I am so thankful for the Horns
"Their love for what they do shines through in their work and how much they care about each couple they work with. We booked our engagement session with them and they were stunning, they made us feel comfortable in front of the camera.
As we neared the wedding, working out all of the details with the Horn's was so easy; they know what they are doing and made us feel at ease that every special moment of our wedding was captured. They add special touches to every interaction from sending a date night package a couple weeks before the wedding to bringing me a wedding survival kit for the day of. During the wedding day Michelle and Brandon captured it ALL! They even displayed photos from the day of on a beautiful screen in the reception area and the guests loved seeing the still shots of the day."
"every special moment
One of the best parts about what we do is being blessed with the ability to cultivate real relationships with our couples. Documenting the engagement shoot to the their first day as husband and wife is only the start of the adventure. The rhythm of life blossoms and jubilant calls from our couples come in for Lifestyle Photo Shoots, everything from: maternity, newborn, family to anniversary travel shoots.
