Hi, I'm Cameron Akin 

I'm a wedding photographer, big thinker, go-getter, type-A softie who enjoys a groovy jazz band and a thick steak. I have photographed hundreds of creative sessions in almost 8 years of shooting and I'm on top of the world when I'm behind the lens.

My philosophy is simple. I want your "happily ever after" to start with a "Once upon a time...". Your story is unique and so very special. What a privilege for me to capture it! With all the people, places, and plans it takes to truly tell a story like this, I believe it's important for a photographer to listen carefully and let creativity come from collaboration.

So, with that in mind, take a look around. I'm really glad that you're here.


Q: “Do you deliver every image you shoot?”

A: No we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.


Q: “Does your studio provide videography services?”

A: Yes. To see examples of our videography services, click here.


Q: “Can I see a full event from start to finish?”

A: Of course you may! We pride ourselves on the consistency of our work. We understand all photographers put up their best shots from each wedding on their websites so it’s hard to determine how well he or she will perform on the wedding day. That is why we encourage all of our potential clients to view full events from all photographers they meet with to see how well the photographer performs throughout the day.

Q: “My venue is really dark. How does your studio handle these situations and can I see samples?”

A: We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls so no need to worry! If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to ensure we get bright crisp pictures. Some chapels do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on camera’s with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures.


Q: “How many hours do you suggest we set aside for wedding day photos?”

A: The amount of time we suggest you set aside for photos depends on the time of day.

Preparation Shots – Duration: 1.5 hours
Ideally we would have 45 minutes for the girls and 45 minutes with the guys.

Couples session – Duration: 1 hour to 1.5 hours
We highly suggest doing this before the ceremony in conjunction with a “first look.” That way you can enjoy the rest of your day without having to worry about taking too much time out for photo’s. Also this is when the makeup and hair are fresh. We’ll set up a first look moment so it’ll still be a surprise when you see each other. Be sure to give us at least a full hour so we can capture the amazing shots you see in our portfolio.

Family Formals – Duration: 1 hour
Have a list of pictures that you want with your family/friends right after the ceremony. Typically this is done at the altar but we can do it any location you’d like. Also, have one person from each side of the family that is really organized (and loud) to move people in and out of photo’s.

Bridal Party (Optional) – Duration: 0.5 hour to 1 hour
This is where we take the bridal party out for some fun shots. This is also nice to handle before the ceremony so that you can rest and enjoy your day afterwards.



Visual Marketing Strategy

We work with you to tell a story that aligns with your principles, goals, desires, and needs. This is part of the beginning of every video and project we take on. We don’t just want to capture what you do, we want to tell it in a way that lets people understand what makes you unique and interesting.

Video Production

We use years of technical experience wrapped up in a passion for customer service. Our video production services offer top-of-the-line techniques and equipment to cleanly and elegantly capture content centered on your business or project.


We believe that we can squeeze a little more than 1000 words out of our photos. While video is important, photography’s ability to capture a moment will never fade. Our focus is on attention to detail, composition, framing, and feeling.
