You want natural photos that accurately reflect your love story, your personalities, and your commitment to each other. And if we had to guess, we’d wager you also want photographers who are both friendly, fun, and professional—people who know when to step up and direct your crazy relatives, and when to stand back and let the moment unfold naturally.

That’s our cue: We're James and Emma, college sweethearts turned life and business partners. Our style has been described as journalistic, organic, adventurous, and authentic, and our editing style is true-to-color and classic with a just a touch of warmth.

The results? A healthy mix of candid and classic wedding photos you’ll want to hang on the walls of your forever home and share with your grandchildren.


Texas is our homebase, Colorado & the PNW are our second-homes, but we have wandering souls. Travel available worldwide.

Want to look back on your wedding day and remember it
as epic as it felt? We're the photographers for you.

Imagine a wedding experience as real and as rad as you are



What started out as a passion for the art of photography eventually developed into a full-blown obsession! We helped plan and photograph our first elopement in Big Bend National Park a decade ago, and as we watched the couple recite their vows to one another on a cliff overlooking the Rio Grande, we knew we were meant for this. Since then, we’ve helped countless couples celebrate and document their day their way, one adventure at a time.

"Emma and James are more and better than we ever could have expected! They are the duo we all need photographing our weddings + any major life events. They are so cool and down to earth and make you feel so at ease in front of the cameras. The dedication to the craft is absolutely UNMATCHED - literally Emma was on the floor at our reception lol. Not only are they amazing to work with but they deliver TOP TIER QUALITY PHOTOS TOO!! And within a timely manner! Seriously - we were blown away by our engagement session and our wedding photos... surreal. We're still speechless!! You cannot go wrong with booking Canyon & Pine!!"

"Emma and James had a beautiful style that my wife and I loved. They captured the little natural moments [and] they were focused on making sure the day went smoothly and letting us enjoy the day with our family and friends without distraction. They took the time to learn which moments were the most important [in our Catholic ceremony], and treated the ceremony with reverence. Definitely would recommend to friends, and we already have."

Here’s the thing:

After the planning is done, the cake tacos are eaten, and you drive off into the sunset, all that’s left of your wedding day are the photographs.

Our job is to make sure your precious wedding photographs capture the day as you actually lived it—flyaway hairs, candid kisses, tearful hugs and all—so you can relive it again and again for years to come.
