Photography & Videography

we're all about capturing THE INTIMATE MOMENTS, Then just the posed shots. 

We each have seen people at their most vulnerable. We understand humanity at a deeper level, Gabe with background as a Law Enforcement Officer & US Army and Molly a certified Life Coach. 
We believe that in vulnerability, a deeper magic can be captured. When you are authentic and you truly FEEL in that moment, your soul is captured. THAT is irreplaceable. 
In 12 years of marriage, four kids, and innumerable chaos, we have had our fair share of stress. We thankfully have love letters to look back on when life gets tough, but we wish we had quality photos and videos. Don't let that be your regret. 

we're Your new bff's, photographers & mentors.

let us introduce ourselves...

"My husband and I recently celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. I don't like my photo taken and definitely was very nervous and reluctant when friends arranged both photo and video. BUT what a pleasant surprise and delightful experience to work with illumination Studios! Molly and Gabe made us so relaxed and at ease that we totally forgot our nerves! They are fun and personable. And we are so thankful for their professionalism in the precious memories they captured to share with future generations of our family!! Thank you Molly and Gabe"

Authenticity is a mutual thing. We believe that by being our true selves, it helps bring out your truest nature. 
Our values have always been rooted in integrity. Being raw and honest and doing what's right no matter what.

Our work reflects our values. Putting our whole selves into our craft to give you the best possible experience from the first chat to the final product. 

OUR approach

We have truly horrible pictures (and no video) of our wedding 12 years ago. We cheaped out and deeply regret it. 

On top of never wanting anyone else to go through that loss, we absolutely love the connection and beauty of weddings. We know you put your heart and soul into planning and that every detail and moment should be lovingly captured.
