“Let’s sit down and look at our wedding album on Facebook!”

– said no one, EVER!


This is a question that we asked ourselves when we first started photographing weddings. There are so many avenues out there that make it super easy for couples to archive all of their favorite photos. While those resources are great for archiving files, we have found that our couples really LOVE having the story of their day designed into a piece of artwork that can then be handed down to the generations that will surpass them! We don’t want your digital files to be the end of your memories but rather the catalyst in providing you with some amazing artwork that you and your future family members can enjoy and physically hand down through the years. This is YOUR LEGACY. Don’t let it slip away into cyberspace.


We are always striving to be unique and different and offer our couples an experience that goes above and beyond whatever is average. We dare you to be different and think out side of the box with us. Based on this concept, we have always provided our couples with the top of the line albums and finished art pieces that will leave you speechless! We have searched for the highest quality craftsmanship in the R2 Albums that we produce. These are albums that we feel proud to present to our couples made of the finest premium materials that are sure to last beyond your lifetime. From the Italian full grain leathers, the one of a kind size options, to the finishes on the individual pages. You can be sure that we are only offering products that are guaranteed to blow you away!


It’s one of our BIGGEST philosophies that, if your wedding photographer isn’t providing you with a finished piece of art to capture the essence and the story of your day, then they have done you a huge disservice. As professional photographers we have unique access to some of the most amazing artwork opportunities that we can pass on to our couples so that they can forever enjoy and relive the story of their day.
