meet the founders, Kristen & Christian

having photographed & Filmed over 300 weddings, Kristen & Christian's passion to serve has overflowed into their talented photo & video team.

We're high school sweethearts that tied the knot on September 7, 2013. Every day since then we have worked side-by-side to photograph and film what a wedding day is all about; your unique and authentic love. Take it from us... marriage is not all sunshine and rainbows, but when looking back on photos and videos from your day, you'll remember the love you had from the beginning... not all the other "fluff." Being able to work together as a husband and wife team has been an amazing journey, but growing this company and establishing a trustworthy and talented group of creatives to serve our couples has become really important to us . We value the relationship you have and your love is all that matters. That's all that's left after the wedding anyway... and your photos and videos too of course. When you book Dearly Beloved Weddings, you get a team that's here to guide you, support your relationship, have fun with you and capture the moments that bring back all the feels.

Zack & Caitlyn

Hiring  the DBW team as our wedding photographer and videographer was one of the best decisions we could have made during our wedding planning process. It felt like we’ve been friends for years. They offered words of advice when we were stressed and gave us a sense of comfort. The team was efficient, thorough and knew exactly what they were doing. It was so fun being a part of the creative process and watching the team collaborate with each other to get the perfect shots.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Kristen and Christian. We had to reschedule our Philly wedding multiple times because of Covid and they were always so accommodating with the shifting schedules. We then finally decided to get eloped in the mountains in Alaska and they were willing to travel 10+ hours and come with us on the helicopter! On our wedding day they were so incredible and professional. They are not only great people but they are ridiculously good at what they do. 

Dave & Christine

I wish it was possible to rate the DBW crew 10 stars! I can't say enough how wonderful it was to have them as part of our wedding day. From engagement photos, planning phone calls, to answering all of our questions, to giving advice on a schedule for the morning of—this team does it all! They provide such a comforting, light-hearted, and fun atmosphere that truly allows you to be yourselves in front of the camera.
