Exclusive, artistic, & honest collaboration is a key feature at Storyteller Co, where the duo selectively works with couples who share alignment with their values, priorities, and vision. Couples are required to contract wedding planning/coordination for all day-of wedding events, ensuring a seamless and well-coordinated experience.

What Is Your Style of Capture?
True to color, true to how it felt, artful. Always. Rooted in a rich background of photojournalism and documentary expertise, Storyteller Co's approach to wedding photography is distinguished by a candid-focused, minimal-to-no-prompts style of documentation. They ardently strive to authentically & artfully capture genuine moments that reflect your essence, your togetherness, and your love, all while seamlessly blending into the fabric of your special day. All Storyteller Co's wedding services include all day coverage, meaning they do not capture using an hourly rate, instead staying as long as needed to capture each storied moment of your wedding celebrations!
To achieve their unique images & films, Kayla & Zach employ a hybrid toolkit featuring analog film & digital cameras, skillfully combining various mediums and film stocks to artfully encapsulate the energy of each moment. The outcome is a timeless documentation of your most cherished memories and the beloved people who shared with you in your celebrations. Storyteller Co's process combines 35mm, medium format, and Polaroid photographic films, as well as Super 8mm & 16mm cine film, ensuring an unparalleled capture experience and lasting keepsakes.
All images and films are edited to reflect the colors of your day true to form, all wedding galleries also include select retouching (removing unwanted background noise such as uncovered outlets, trashcans, etc) to ensure the highest quality final deliverables.
Do You Shoot Real Film?
Storyteller Co specializes in capturing hybrid film & digital wedding photography and videography -- combining 35mm, medium format, and Instant photographic films, Super 8/16mm movie film, and digital captures. The duo is known for their unique mixed medium style, documenting weddings using Holga film cameras, 35mm & 120 SLR/rangefinder cameras, a variety of vintage Super 8mm cinema cameras, a vintage 1920's 16mm magazine movie camera, and mirrorless digital cameras.
Analog film is a truly timeless, bespoke, and luxury experience — unique, storied, and deserving of the honor that is documenting the ultra-important memories unfolding during the celebration of your love. Our digital captures are minimally edited to reflect the highest quality final deliverables and cohesive multi-media images and films. Storyteller Co's storied and artistic analog film documentation, created alongside the capabilities and instant gratification of the duo's stunning professional digital captures, results in truly unique and timeless heirloom keepsakes you'll be proud to revisit and share for generations to come.
Do You Provide Film Negatives?
Film negatives are precious artifacts capturing the timeless moments of your special day. Keeping and delivering archival film negatives to wedding clients offers a unique and enduring experience that digital files can't replicate. Archival film negatives serve as a tangible, authentic connection to the past, preserving the true essence and aesthetic of your wedding in a way that is distinct from digital formats.
By including archival film negatives in wedding packages, clients not only receive the ability to access stunning dark-room prints, but also gain the ability to view their images on a vintage projector and create custom enlargements or specialty prints in the future. Film negatives ensure the longevity of your cherished memories, as they are resistant to technological obsolescence and provide a timeless quality that withstands the test of time. Furthermore, the tactile nature of film negatives adds a nostalgic and artistic touch to the overall wedding experience, offering couples a tangible connection to the craftsmanship involved in capturing their precious moments. In an age of fleeting digital images, film negatives provide a lasting and irreplaceable memento that enhances the value of your wedding documentation experience, making it a truly invaluable and irreplaceable investment.

Hire them!!! I am so in awe of how present and inconspicuous Kayla was. Never did I feel like “I wish the photographer was here to capture this” Kayla was somehow in a million places at once but in the most peaceful manner. They were easy to talk to, brought a sense of relaxation, were organized, and made sure they captured every shot we wanted… overall just insanely lovely. And I haven’t even talked about the photos! They capture the events on film & digital in such an authentic way. Yes, just yes.
