WE ARE STORYTELLERS

WE ARE STORYTELLERS


It's about telling a story.

We at the Entrance Collective are here to tell your story in a creative & personal way. 

We are a husband & wife team that believes in good quality creative content. We work together all day & wouldn't have it any other way.
We were trained to do both photography & video, but we each have our preference. Ali is more passionate about taking photos & capturing a moment that you will want to hang on your wall for years to come. Nate is an incredible filmmaker who documents bands & tours, but also does music videos & ads. He really has an eye for film that is unique. At the end of the day, we both help, encourage, challenge & support each other, often working together to complete a project. 

We are passionate about telling your story through your wedding photos, your tour documentary or your company ad. We want people to see our content & feel like they know a piece of the story. We describe ourselves as lifestyle photographers, meaning we document in a photo-journalistic way. We go beyond the posed family portraits & dive head first into emotions, the behind the scenes & in between moments.

We at the Entrance Collective are ready to come alongside your life, brand, organization & make you proud of who you are & what you do.

-- Ansel Adams. 

Photos are a moment of time, stopped & captured forever. I often find myself looking at a photo & saying 'I would have never seen that emotion if it wasn't captured on film'.

When I take photos, I find myself smiling & my heart full of joy. There is truly nothing like photographing love, joy, laughter & letting all of those raw moments shine through.

 

It's amazing to me that people trust us to document their special days & allow us into their life, their hearts & their families.

I can truly relate to what Annie Leibovitz says,
'A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people'.

A video without emotion is simply an unfinished story.
Let us bring your dream to life. Let us add vision to your company. Let us add visual to your music.
Just like Quentin Taratino says 'When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'no, I went to films'.

Who We Are

Who We Are


Ali is a small town Canadian girl & Nate is a smaller town Kansas boy. We met & fell in love in Sydney, Australia & two years later we got married on a farm in the country just outside of Toronto, Ontario. We are young & in love. We are adventurous & love traveling. We are happiest in coffee shops & listening to music. We love good local restaurants & have fun finding places off the beaten path. We are family people & love Jesus.
We are the Happers & we want to be apart of your story.

I hate bios. I am the kind of person, that if you want to get to know me then lets grab a coffee and chat. Let's hang out, and most importantly lets make something awesome.

My creative motto is plain and simple, DON'T SUCK. Make something AMAZING.

It's that phrase that has created a passion inside of me for all things creative. My heart is to make something new and tell your story through it all. At the end of the day I always want the people we work to walk away proud of what we have created for them, and I want to be proud of what we make. For me it's a win win. 

I love JESUS and I'm man enough to say that. HE has completely changed my life and I'm passionate about His people. For me, this business is all about hanging out and meeting great people, telling their story and living a great adventure. If we can manage to grab some coffee in there that will make it all the better.

I fell in love with photography when I realized I could take a photo & use it to remember pieces of my life. I forget things easily & when I have photos, I have memories. I love looking back at photos from the beginning of Nate & I's relationship & feeling all those emotions all over again. It's pretty magical I think, & the fact that I get to have a job that does that for other people is incredible. 

I love relationships. I become deeply invested in people & believe that my job goes beyond snapping some pictures & leaving an event or wedding. I believe that when a relationship is built, the walls come down & that's when those beautifully raw moments happen. I'm truly inspired by people & their passions.

I'm easy going, I'm a little bit of a health-freak [with a side of ice cream & pizza] I love having a solid plan, but I'm always up for a little spontaneity.   

I'd love to be your friend & even better, I'd love to take your photo.

THE NITTY GRITTY.
 

Every project is different and we believe every project has different financial requirements. That is why we feel it is always a good idea to work with you on pricing.

When it comes to your wedding, we don't limit your special day to a timeline. Our rate gets you two photographers & a USB with edited photos weeks after your day. Everything can be modified to fit your timeline & requirements. This is a moment in time that you want to be captured forever. It's our goal to do our part to tell your whole wedding day from start to finish. 

Shoot us an email or fill out the form below and we will get back to you with a custom quote for your project/event/session.
