We can do everything for you, such be your buddy, hype friend, coffee deliverer, dress bustler, wedding party herder, and boutonniere pinner. Just as much as your guests are present, we are there to celebrate you. 


For us, having trust is really crucial. We must get along if we want to get real, true, raw images. My method is SO intentional at every stage. When our connection is based on trust, you may be more open and have more authentic, true-to-you moments that you'll want to cherish for years.

"Captured Group is an absolute dream. They are so pleasant, professional, and charming. We found them on Zola, searching for someone with a style we liked and we looked no further. Maria and Ricky are so cool, they genuinely felt like guests we had invited and we not only enjoyed their photography but their presence at our wedding was comforting and fun. They cover every question or need you could possibly have, if you think it, they thought of it! Our photos are amazing and heartfelt, I will cherish them forever. You will do yourself a favor by putting your wedding photography in their capable and creative hands."
