Hello, we're pat and Claire
Our story began over an innocent coffee meeting between two creatives. Seven years later we're married and living in the city where we met with our giant muppet of a dog, Stamps. Philadelphia is our home, but we travel up and down the East Coast and across the globe for weddings.
We’ve been lucky enough to be named one of the ‘30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography’ by Rangefinder Magazine as well as landing the cover image for that issue. Our work has been featured in nearly every major wedding publication - Brides, InStyle, Martha Stewart Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, Ruffled, and more.
We've been lucky enough to run profitable business for the last 11 years, each year with a greater year-over-year profit and revenue than the last. We have learned through our business experience how utilize measurable data and trends to back it up how we operate as photographers and we A/B test everything to see what works, and what doesn’t. Claire and I want to do everything in our power to help enable the next generation of photographers to run highly successful, sustainable businesses by sharing everything we’ve learned along our journey with you. The best way to create better art and to have a bigger impact on the world is through longevity in business, and it doesn't have to be scary.
We’re here to help change your lives and we firmly believe that not everyone does well in a large workshop setting. We want to get down and dirty with the ins and outs of your specific business and help enact the change to propel you forward.
We can’t wait to hear how we can help you reach your photographic and business goals.
