love. crazy love.
It began simply: A camera was given as a Christmas gift. The camera evolved into a New Year’s Resolution; a pledge to take one photo a day for an entire year. Now we are here: the pledge has evolved into vows of forever before God, and the gift has evolved into Belltower Photography.
But it remains simple. We are two people. Two people totally in love with each other. Two people totally in love with what they do. And two people totally in love with working together.
And it is simple. He tells a joke; I laugh. I cry; he wipes the tears away. He wants to go camping in Alaskan tundra; I agree to a hike. I want to live at Starbucks; he says how about every other day. Yin and Yang. Alpha and Omega. Milk and Cookies. Pete and Emily. (and Lucy and Farley, of course).
When we first began our business, we had a motto (yes, we’ll admit it was pretty cheesy): Shoot what you love; love what you shoot. While we’ve dropped the tagline, the sentiment remains the same: We love to share the stories of two people and find the simple, beautiful moments where all that remains is true, pure love in all its many forms. We shoot life’s major events and the moments in between because to us, it’s simple: happiness is found in the time spent with the ones you love.
So this is the story of us. Two simple people. Simply finding love. Growing together in the simple gift of a camera, hoping to share stories of other simple, magnificent, crazy loves.
