Our Mission

Our mission is to provide all of our clients with outstanding service, budget-friendly packages, and above all, beautiful photos that capture all of the love, tears, and smiles on your big day. Whether you’re hosting a formal church ceremony with lots of friends and family or having an intimate mountain elopement with just you and your partner, Wanderlight has a wide range of professional and talented photographers to choose from, all with their own unique style.

We take the work out of finding and booking a photographer with our simple, 4-step process. You simply tell us your date, select an available photographer, pick your package and add-ons, and check it off your to-do list. This process lets us charge less without sacrificing quality, so you can have your cake and eat it too, so to speak. Wedding planning is hard work but we’re here to make this part simple so you can move onto bigger tasks - like choosing between the eggshell and the ivory napkins.


Our team has been working together for a long time, and Wanderlight is the culmination of over 40 years of combined experience. Our work has taken us all over the world, and that sense of adventure and wonder is something we try to capture for each and every client..

Each one of us brings our unique experiences and passions in life to what we do, but the bond we share with each other makes us much greater than the sum of our parts. We work, play, laugh, and learn together. Simply, we are a family, and our family grows every time we photograph another wedding. Our top priority is to treat our clients with the same level of love, gratitude, and respect we feel for each other!
