We aim to capture the depth of your emotions without the stiffness of traditional posing. We take pride in documenting every teeny-tiny tale that lives within your love story.

  • Do we offer engagement shoots? Click to Open

    We love engagement sessions — especially adventurous ones! We like to call them adventure shoots. You can think of it as a practice run for the big day, but we also love when our couples take a step outside their comfort zones and create an experience together for their shoot. We love photographing the unforgettable and delivering the unbelievable. Maybe we head to the mountains, chase waterfalls, or anything else your adventurous spirit is calling for.

    Adventure sessions start at $850.


  • Do you offer video? Click to Open

    We believe in the power of photography and the power of video. Both are forms of magic.

    We do offer Photo/Video packages with our sister company Stagger Films. Check them out and inquire for more information.


  • Do you offer Photo Booths? Click to Open

    We do and we are BIG FANS.

    Photobooths are all over the place these days — weddings, networking events, birthday parties, and celebrations of all sorts. And because we attend so many fantastic functions, we’ve been in a LOT of photo booths.

    Our sister company, Poser Photobooth Co., makes a fantastic addition to any wedding, reception, or other formal events. For more information on booking Poser, head over to Poser Photobooth Co.

    If you work with us for photography and plan to book a photo booth as well, let us know and we’ll give you a discount to use towards your photo booth.

  • What is required to book my date? Click to Open

    1. The first step, we should meet. Let’s talk, get a feel for one another, and make sure we’re a good fit. We truly believe in quality over quantity, and we want to make sure we mesh well and can establish close, personal relationships with our limited number of wedding clients. We want our best work, and so do you. This way we both get what we want!

    2. The contract.

    3. A 50% deposit to secure your date.


  • Do you photograph families? Click to Open

    We do and we love photographing families. Amrit and Melissa are the photographers that photograph our family sessions. We offer full family sessions as well as mini sessions.

  • Do we give out raw photos? Click to Open

    Chefs don’t serve raw meat, photographers don’t serve raw files. Our couples hire us for our artistic quality and expertise. We truly care very much about the quality of your images and work very hard to give them the love and attention they deserve.

  • Do you carry insurance? Click to Open

    Yes, we are fully insured.

  • What if an emergency happens and you can't shoot our wedding? Click to Open

    This is something we’ve always considered and have taken seriously, long before Covid-19 was ever a thing, and have always had a backup plan in place. One of the reasons we have a team is to have each other’s backs. We also have a really beautiful and tight-knit photo community here in Philadelphia. Though we try to keep ourselves in good health, we are all human and know that sometimes things are beyond our control. We will make every reasonable effort to ensure you are taken care of.

  • Do you shoot city weddings or indoor weddings? Click to Open

    Yes + Yes.

A Flawless Experience

We had a flawless experience with M2. We worked with Audrey who was fabulous and made us feel so comfortable, free, and relaxed. I didn’t realize how important this would be. Our teasers look AMAZING. And I cannot wait to see our full gallery. I am grateful to M2 for capturing our day with such love, support, and beauty.
