"What a gift it was to have Sammie and Micah as our adventure guides/photographers. They truly went above and beyond any expectation for photographers, as they were actively involved and reassuring with planning and execution. They helped alleviate any unnecessary stress leading up and throughout the day. I don’t say this often but run, don’t walk, to have the opportunity to collaborate with The Chaffins."

CONNECTION, AUTHENTICITY, SLOWING DOWN, BEING PRESENT -
IF YOU VALUE YOUR MARRIAGE OVER YOUR WEDDING DAY. . . WE'RE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR YOU.
Getting married in an intentional way that is true to who you are as a couple, keeping all the traditions you love and letting go of the ones you don’t. Prioritizing a relationally-focused, meaningful experience over details, and including a limited amount of loved ones to keep the day intimate and special.
(Often includes unique, personalized activities to make the wedding an unforgettable adventure!)
Sound pretty incredible? We think so too.
Elopements can be whatever you want them to be - they can have 30 guests or 0 guests, be an 8 hour day or a 4-day experience. They can be in your hometown, in a national park, in a foreign country, on the coast, in a desert, in multiple countries - wherever your heart desires!
Sammie and Micah made our dreams all come true and we could have not had a more perfect day if it wasn’t for them.
The prompts they had us doing made it feel comfortable and like we were living in the moment, not posing for a photo. After receiving our photos, we were in shock. It exceeded everything we ever dreamed.
Sammie and Micah, you were amazing and immediately felt like best friends. Thank you for making our wedding day so so special!”

They went above and beyond and we are forever grateful. Not only with how the photos came out (which were gorgeous!), but making the whole experience memorable (and honestly, fun! and this is coming from two people who don't take pictures and are very unphotogenic). Sammie and Micah are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet, who also are incredibly talented.”
