Hey there!

We're Jake and Candi - husband and wife photographers based in the Midwest, traveling everywhere. We're obsessed with our dogs, believe pizza and bacon should be their own food group, and believe a good beer with good friends is the best way to spend an afternoon.



An architect and lawyer by day, we aren't here capturing photos to make a living. We set out on this journey because we love meeting new people, learning their stories, and capturing authentic moments through photos. No fluff, no faking it, just real moments captured in the most true to life way possible.

Candi grew up in Iowa, and Jake in Nebraska. We bring that midwestern, carefree, and friendly attitude to our sessions. 

We met in Chicago at a wedding Candi crashed. 


For 8 years, we've called Kansas City our home. We love living in the middle of America but jump at every opportunity to see the world.

Ask us if you can bring your dog to your session, and you'll likely be met with "Yes!", "Duh!", or "Why wouldn't you?"


Speaking of dogs, ours are FAR more famous than we'll ever be, and we're ok with that. Check them out on Instagram @dublyndoodle.


When we're not busy taking or editing photos, you can find us renovating our home @bridlewoodacres, enjoying a good beer in the hammock, or kayaking the great lakes of Kansas and Missouri.
