meet us

- James& Katie

Hi there, we're thrilled you're here!

We're James and Katie Stokes, a down-to-earth and passionate photography duo hailing from the heart of Wisconsin. We have over a decade spent immersed in the art of photography as full-time professional photographers. 

We are middle school sweethearts and the parents of 10 childrenl and several fur babies! Needless to say, we really love life and cherish every moment we have to live out our calling. 

Raised in small rural towns 90 miles apart, we have a deep appreciation for the Midwest, the people, and their values, but we long for adventure and the beauty of the West, where James spent many a summer growing up. 

We see it as a force that shapes generations and breathes life into stories. Our dream is for the snapshots we capture to become lasting tokens of life's beautiful moments, resonating with the blessings and goodness that surround you and your loved ones.

But there's more to us than just our craft – our hearts also beat with a deep love for Jesus Christ. This spiritual connection adds true purpose to our work and lives. We're truly grateful for the journey we're on. Behind our camera lenses, we're privileged to witness his divine artistry and we give all the glory to Him! 

So, if you're a couple who cherishes the unscripted, embraces the authentic, and seeks beauty in every moment, we're here to capture your story and be your friend along the way!

We are so happy we went with James & Katie as our photographers for our wedding! They made our day perfect. James and Katie were extremely responsive, professional and fun! They captured all of our requested photos and made everyone feel comfortable and condfident in front of the camera. I was SO impressed with how quickly we were sent sneak peeks and our final photos! I would absolutely book with them again! :)
