Mitch and Savanna are wedding, elopement and couples’ photographers and videographers of the unconventional and adventurous kind. They fell in love creating things together, so it only feels right that what they do for a living is creating things in the name of love. Nothing gives them more joy than capturing someone else’s story and creating something timeless out of it; something tangible that you can frame on your wall and show your children, and maybe even their children. To get to do this for you is an honor and a gift for them, and they can’t wait to document your story with you.
