a little

about the Lands


It’s great to meet you.

After a stint in the US Navy I, JD, picked a camera back up in 2010 and photographed my first wedding volunteering for a Marine that couldn’t afford a big wedding. I never trained with or worked for other photographers and I think that is what allowed me to create a style that is uniquely me.

Over the last 14 years things have taken off more than I could have ever imagined when I started photographing weddings in 2010 and I am forever grateful to everyone who has trusted me with their memories.

Tina, JD’s better half, has been a professional makeup artists and boudoir photographer for even longer than JD has been photographing weddings. Hitting the road full time was tough for her as her makeup business literally had her blood, sweat, and tears, all over it.

It worked out though as now she still gets to do makeup for some of our couples that book us and as far as her boudoir photography, well spending half the year in Las Vegas is a great place to be for that! Not to mention the morning of boudoir options.

The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own – populated with their own ambitions, friend, routines, worries, and inherited craziness – an epic story that continues invisibly and endlessly around you.

What life is like

on the road

“If you want to keep your memories, You first have to live them.”
Bob Dylan
It isn’t quite as exciting as it sounds but for us it’s truly a dream come true. There is a lot more daily planning required in life in order to figure out where we will be, when we will be there, and where we will park our house. The parking the house part being the biggest part of our daily planning. That said, the freedom and memories we are able to make are more than we ever wished for. Being able to explore our amazing country, the little towns, the epic mountains, and beautiful coastlines, is something we don’t take for granted. Our home is truly wherever we are, along with our two cats Roxie & Russel, and we don’t need anything more than that.
