Kristen & Christian

Meet the owners + lead photo + video duo...

The couple that started it all.

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 our favorite Netflix shows 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!

Meet the rest of the team...

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 Jillian! My photography journey started over 12 years ago, with a Minolta film camera. I fell in love with photography as a storytelling tool. I’m inspired by authenticity and the way that our narratives are intertwined with the natural world around us. My husband and I are raising a strong little girl and a crazy little floof (mini Aussie mix). When I’m not behind the lens, I’m trail running with my pup, refining my yoga practice, and working behind the scenes with Allium Floral Design.

My name is Elvis Herrera and 7 years ago I decided to buy my first camera. In the beginning it was just to record YouTube videos, but I was captivated by the world of film and dove straight into creating music, travel and commercial videos. At first these videos were just for my friends, but now I’ve had the great opportunity to call it my job which I love. Having the ability of capturing a moment that people want to preserve forever is such a beautiful thing to do. As humans we can’t stop time, but are able to look at time in the form of videos and photographs.

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 a7siii and an a7sii. 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.

Hi! I'm Amanda! Photography has been a creative outlet for years, and when I resigned from teaching to pursue a more artistic career, I fell in love with visual storytelling and capturing connections between people.

Hey there - I’m Desiree! I picked up a camera when I lost my creative spark after college. I was inspired to capture authentic love & joy that couples radiate during engagements & weddings. Kristen & Christian also shot my wedding in 2018, so I’m a DBW bride turned DBW photographer! I love all things personal development & self help! Along with photography & my full time job as a mental health case manager, I’m a Life Coach & creator over at Staying Rooted with Des. In my spare time, I love Barnes and Noble dates with my husband & playing with our puppy, Kobe.

Hey! I’m Larissa. I am a wedding, portrait and fine art photographer. I started taking photos of my sisters and friends in high school and fell in love with being able to capture people and their emotions. I graduated from The University of the Arts in 2019. Since then, I have worked along side the Dearly Beloved team and have loved it! I am an adventurer at heart with an incurable case of wanderlust. I am a huge believer that laughter is a cure-all. My little Shih-Tzu, Hope, is an extension of myself and one of my favorite cuddle buddies. Car rides at sunset, rainy mornings spent reading the Bible, iced lattes, heart-to-hearts, and soul soothing music. I’m here for it.

Hi! I’m Jenn! I’m a lover of video and science! I am a scientist by day and videographer by night and weekends! The creative outlet film gives has brought me so much joy. I’m a sucker for rom-coms and the notebook and experiencing weddings and being able to capture the day holds such a special place in my heart. I’m a huge bachelor/bachelorette fan - so I’m glued to the TV on Mondays! But when I’m not filming, I’m enjoying time with my hubby and friends! Doing whatever comes our way!

Hey, I’m Regina! I currently live in Pennsylvania but have moved all over for my fiancé’s Army career. I’m also a DBW bride, turned video editor, and video manager! After graduating from Penn State with a degree in bio-behavioral health, I decided to pivot towards a more creative path. I combined my “love for love” with video editing, and the rest was history. I am honored to be a part of creating special memories that couples will embrace for a lifetime. In my free time, I love exploring new places, watching Gilmore Girls, and/or hanging out with our dog, Teddy, and two cats, Nittany and Oswald.

Hi! I’m Kristine! I am a wife and new boy mama and I love those two to death! For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved taking pictures. There is something so magical to me about being able to capture a moment of time. I absolutely cherish photos and I wish to give that gift as well! The beach is my favorite place (OCNJ) – but honestly anywhere with sunshine makes me happy. My other hobbies include photographing families and sweet babies, hanging out with friends, reading (total book nerd) and volleyball.
