These are some of the faces that have changed us forever. Joel's mom founded a nonprofit called Saving Grace in Uganda in 2009, and we have been a part of it ever since. Any spare time we have goes towards volunteering with administrative tasks, taking photos, social media or leading teams to Uganda. We typically travel to Uganda once a year to visit our staff and children over there and help in any way we can. Thousands of children's lives have been changed through this organization and it is our absolute honor to play any role in the mission.
All the emotions came back going through our photos in a way neither of us expected. Going through each other's getting ready photos felt like we were there living the moment and looking back. We are blown away at the moments captured and the quality of images. It took us two days just to digest the photos and take it all in. A major takeaway was also the photos of all our friends and family and those sweet moments. It's crazy how fast things move that day/night and there were a few people we weren't able to grab a photo with. But Joel & Sammy gave us the best gift without even realizing it by managing to get beautiful, candid, and heartwarming photos of all our guests and we can't express enough how much that means to us. We felt like we were able to give back to our guests their own moment of our special day."
Not only did they make sure our day was flawless by working with our timeline, they delivered the most beautiful photos we could have ever imagined. When booking a photographer it’s so important to be confident in knowing you made a good decision. I can tell you, you can’t go wrong with 28 North. Not only are they ever so talented, they are fun to work and take the time to make personal connections. From our engagement shoot and our wedding day they captured each detail so perfectly. Words truly can’t describe how thankful I am for the photos we can now cherish forever."
Joel & Sammy photographed my best friend's wedding about 5 years ago and left such an impact on me (as a bridesmaid at the time), that two days after I got engaged, they were the very first vendor I reached out to!! Joel & Sammy bring such a light and a comfort to your wedding day, they capture the raw and emotional moments so delicately and the high energy, sweaty moments on the dance floor with such an electric energy! We also received our entire wedding album 6 days after our wedding... INSANE!! The dedication & love these two put into their work shine through in their photos. My entire wedding album is full of priceless photos that I will cherish for the rest of my days!!"
Sammy & Joel are unparalleled photographers who made our wedding day even more special with the incredible images we will have for a lifetime. Since the first time contacting them, they were so authentically interested in our love story and photography needs that I knew we had to book them! On our wedding day Joel & Sammy made us so comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. They blended right into the family and the crowd, making an effort to learn everyone’s name and making sure to capture moments with everyone. And the 1000+ photos that they captured and edited from the day.... I’m speechless!! They are beyond anything I could dream of—the most beautiful encapsulation of our love and wedding day! Not to mention that we received our ENTIRE gallery less than two weeks after the wedding. I would recommend 28 North Photography a million times over!!"
I can’t even tell you how many compliments we received on how awesome and sweet our photographers were and then how insanely stunning our photos are. Looking back on our wedding, it was so seamless and stress free because of the photo schedule and direction from 28 North. Through out the 2 years of planning and rescheduling... Joel and Sammy were so sweet, understanding, accommodating, and we are so thankful they captured our destination wedding. We honestly can’t thank them enough and feel so lucky to have shared our day with them."
