Our job isn’t just capturing photos or videos. We’re there to help, make you laugh and remain stress free. We’re experts at creating wedding timelines too and love to be involved every step of the way. On your special day, our job is to keep you grounded on what matters, all while capturing every fleeting moment and detail. What also matters to us is the years you spend with each other even after you’re married.
If Christian and I are are unavailable, please do not worry! We have an amazing photo and video team that is able to capture your wedding day with the same passion and intention as us. At Dearly Beloved Weddings we know how important these moments are to you, so we invest a lot of time in training, workshops and educating our team to better understand our core values, mission and techniques. We want every couple, no matter if you work with us or our team, to know that we really care.
When we're not taking photos, filming or editing the days away in our office, you'll find us stuffing our faces with Indian food, binge watching Breaking Bad or Stranger Things and snuggling our mini-dachshund Leia. We love all things creative, enjoy live music (Christian plays in the band Acoustic Pursuit) and traveling to new and exciting destinations. We've been photographing and filming weddings since 2013; from local weddings in Pennsylvania to epic elopements in Iceland and Valley of Fire. We love people, love, and adventure… so our job is pretty much the best EVER.
Hi! I’m Jollette! I’m a momma of two boys and married to my middle-school sweetheart Louis. Photography has been my passion for over 5 years and it all started when my son was born. I just couldn’t put the camera down. Kristen and Christian actually captured my wedding back in 2014 and I was so inspired by their skills. Fast forward to now and I’m so glad to be a part of the team, lead shooting weddings on my own too. When I’m not spending time with my Nikon D750, you’ll find me making homemade kombucha, creating a new cosplay for New York Comic Con, or baking something sweet for my family. I also love to photograph families and births.
Hey, I’m Wayne! I’m a filmmaker, graphic designer, and coffee junkie. My passion for videography first started by filming my friends skateboarding and editing videos for local skate shops. In the past couple of years I’ve owned four different cameras, but finally settled on the best… Sony. I’m currently shooting with the Sony a7sii, but I’m patiently awaiting the a7siii to be released. I’m in love with the process of creating wedding films. There’s something so satisfying about finding the right music, effects and timing to tell a story. When I’m not filming a wedding or a couple, I’m spending time with my son or practicing flying my FPV drone with Christian.
Hey! I’m Amanda, the former school teacher turned photographer! Married 10 years and momma to a sweet little boy and the cutest little red headed girl. I’ve loved photography for over 15 years, but after a career in education, I just decided it was time to pursue my real dream of being an artist. Aside from photography, I love graphic design, drawing, cooking, and knitting. I also love to photograph families! Fun fact: I’m an ironman triathlete too!
Desiree here! I’m married to my best friend and a former book seller, Nick. We’ve been together for almost 9 years. Kristen and Christian actually photographed my wedding back in 2018! I am definitely a lover of all things self-help and personal growth. When I’m not behind the camera, I’m a mental health/developmental disabilities case manager. Although I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, I’ve loved pursing my creative passion for photography. I’ve recently started a project that I hope will incorporate both of my passions; it’s called Wild Heart Collective.
