As the founders 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.
Photos & Video by Founders Kristen & Christian Lopez Michelle and Stanley were set to have their wedding in May of 2020. Well as you all know 2020 has been one heck of a year… Covid-19 hit and lots of spring and summer weddings had to be postponed or even cancelled. Michelle and Stanley’s wedding […]
Weddings are going to look a lot different over the coming months. What we hoped would be a Spring/Summer wedding season filled with jam-packed dance floors and crowded dinner tables… is now going to be a bit more low key. But you know what?! We’re okay with that too, because at the end of the […]
The most important thing on your wedding day is not how awesome your venue was, or how many of your guests we’re talking about. It’s not about the centerpieces, the favors, and not even the food and we all LOVE some good food. Having the “Big” wedding with all of these details is not for […]
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.
Shawn and Teara decided on having an intimate destination wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica at The Moon Palace. Despite the pandemic, they remained hopeful to have their dream wedding. We all left our homes in PA and hopped on a plane to Jamaica.
