Our Story

It all began with a glance across the college art studio

My roommate told me she was out of my league, but I thought I should give her a call anyway. I was an art major, and she was studying graphic design. I couldn't take my eyes off of her. I vividly remember thinking, "this is the girl I am going to marry." Just a few months later we were dating and when I got down on a knee in the chapel we were married in, our love story began. 

For our wedding gift, my parents bought us a Pentax 35mm film camera. I was hooked. I started taking photos of everything, which turned into a hobby and then to a rapidly growing business! Anna discovered her passion for editing and fell in love with the administrative side of the business.

We're the Longs, but

Photography is something I can't get enough of. I have had the privilege of photographing weddings, seniors, and families for eight years, and I still get excited for every session! Over the last few years, I have focused more on specializing in delivering high quality, unique, and artistic wedding photography. I have loved every moment of it.

4. has a lot of shoes
5. loves snowboarding

When I'm not behind the camera, I love spending time with my wife and family. Being married is amazing. Anna still melts my heart every time I look at her, and I can honestly say I am more in love with her today than the day we said our vows. I think that is why I love wedding photography so much - it celebrates the beginning of something incredible. Beyond that, the most important thing is my faith in Jesus. Serving others is just one way I feel like I can honor Him. 

Anna

I absolutely love editing photos, e-mailing clients, and scheduling photo sessions! I'm all about the details and my passion for organization, administration, and graphic design has made us great team! Shane takes the shots, I make them extra pretty, and I get to organize them in those great little albums on our website & Facebook page.

My favorite thing ever is traveling with my amazingly talented husband - camera always in hand! We try to document every moment - creating a time capsule of life as we know it with our kids and with each other and we love sharing it all with our family and friends! We are beyond grateful for God's provision for our family through our photography business and we have been so honored to watch it grow over the years!
