We are wedding photographers who want to capture your wedding story.

We’re Joel + Sammy Kuhn, high school sweethearts who love love and capturing it any way we can. We’ve turned our dreams into our reality and our passion into our profession, and we’re so blessed to be able to love what we do every day.

about joel

Hi there. I’m Joel, and I’ve always had a passion for telling stories that matter. I crave adventure and love making friends wherever I go. I’ve been fortunate enough to turn my love for story telling into my profession and this art has taken me across the country and around the world. I love the uniqueness of every wedding and challenging myself (and Sammy!) to capture each one in a different creative way. Every person has a unique story that begs to be told and that's why I do what I do. Whether it's an intimate memory or a laugh-until-you-cry kind of moment, I want to capture it so that you can share your story for years to come.


about sammy

Hey friends! I’m Sammy, the wife half of 28 North. I love love love what I do and that I get to do it alongside my husband. Being able to tell people’s wedding story through photography is so special to me. I feel refreshed and encouraged spending time with couples who are deeply in love and about to begin the greatest adventure life has to offer. I’m all about relationships and photography has allowed me to meet all different people with such diverse stories. Weddings are so special; all your best friends and family in one place to celebrate with you and be apart of your story. My passion is capturing those sweet moments throughout the day to make them last a lifetime.

Joel could eat Chipotle for every meal everyday of the week.
Sammy is not quite as devoted to Chipotle, but has major heart eyes for donuts.

We’ve known each other since middle school.
Joel’s heart melted when Sammy walked through the doors of their church youth group in the 7th grade dressed up as Dorothy.

Uganda holds a special place in our hearts.
We have spent multiple summers together with our favorite kids from SGU (to learn more visit www.savinggraceinuganda.com).

We have seen every episode of The Office.
Sammy might’ve cried during the season finale (as in she totally did) and we were super sad when we finished the whole thing. It’s our favorite show by far.

We love working together.
Our job allows us to encourage each other’s creativity and push each other to never stop learning.

Our dream is to see as many cities as we can.
We love experiencing new places and would love to live anywhere and everywhere!

Life isn’t always as beautiful as the photos we capture.
We’ve both been through some really hard stuff in our lives, but we are grateful to have the assurance that God works all things together for good (and He really does).
