Nothing happens by accident. The currents of time and destiny carry us all to where we’re meant to be.
That’s how it happened for us. We met through mutual Facebook friends in February 2012. We were instant friends, sharing a history of work in video production and photography. Over the next year and a half, we became best friends. We realized that each of us was the missing piece to the other’s soul and fell head over heels in love. Our love story unfolded exactly the way destiny had intended and today we live to capture moments of time as photographers.
In 2014, we decided to join forces and create Clean Slate Digital Media. In our work as event videographers and photographers, we’ve filmed medical conferences across the U.S. and Europe, monster truck shows, boat races, and more. Our favorite thing to do is wedding photography.
On November 26, 2016, we became husband and wife in Evergreen, Colorado. It was a small ceremony; just us, the officiant, Heather’s best friend from childhood, and our photographer. And a family of mule deer that wandered around during the vows. It was a picture perfect setting as we devoted our hearts and souls to each other. We finally heard those words said to us, “You are now husband and wife.” Like any two people deeply in love, getting married was about more than a piece of paper from the state of Colorado. It was about the end of one journey and the beginning of another. We’d both spent our lives in search of each other. Meeting, becoming friends and falling in love was the first part of our story. Becoming husband and wife started a new chapter. Each day, we write a new page.
We have 6 kids between the two of us from teenagers up to adults in their 20’s. Our blended family includes two dogs and two cats and we’ve had many adventures over the years! From beach trips to an amazing Florida getaway in 2020 just before the pandemic to bonfires at the house, we cherish the time we have with our children as they grow up, move out, and begin their own adventures.
