As the owners of DBW, we've spent a lot of our career dealing with the hustle and bustle of big weddings. Through the years we've seen it all, and for some couples, it's just not worth all the stress. Sometimes the best weddings and memories are created in a meaningful and beautiful location, surrounded by no-one else or just a handful of loved ones that mean the most to the two of you. Take it from us, these are always the types of weddings that leave a lasting impact. In 2022, we've decided to take a step back and focus on photographing and filming destination weddings, elopements, and small intimate weddings. By doing this we're able to connect more with the couple and truly produce our best work.

At the end of the day, getting married is really all about you two coming together. When you get married, whether it’s just the two of you eloping or a small wedding in your backyard with a few special family members & friends… it strips away all of the “ extra stuff” of a traditional big wedding. Elopements & intimate ceremonies allow for a more meaningful, authentic wedding day that’s a true reflection of your relationship—where the focus of the day is really just your love.
Vitaly + Natalie were such an amazing couple to work with. They traveled from Germany to Iceland to elope in this incredible country. We had the opportunity to photograph and film the day from start to finish. It was an unforgettable experience. We’re so excited to share everything very soon! Can’t wait for our next destination.
Our best friends Brianna and Zachary got married! When they asked us back around Christmas we obviously couldn’t say no. It was a total secret and only a few family members knew.
We got to attend the Adventurers Workshop, hosted by Maddie Mae and Abbi Hearne. We drove through Phoenix, a land covered in giant cacti, then Flagstaff, where it was snowing, and then finally we arrived in Page. It was amazing!
After months of trying to plan a regular wedding in Philadelphia, Dave and Christine decided to follow their hearts and elope. So we ventured out via a helicopter and they got married in the most beautiful Alaskan landscape.
