hi! we’re the blumes. and we’re so glad you dropped in. you’re the reason we love what we do. your smiles, your stories – every joyous moment that filters through our cameras confirms our suspicion that life is oh so good. preserving those moments makes our job deeply rewarding. our own story begins with such a moment. we met in tokyo, japan, only later to discover that, at home in georgia, we were practically neighbors. appropriately, the moment was captured in a photograph. now we’re unceasingly amazed at how much better we are together. with our combined artistic visions, formal training and experience, we bring a marriage of creativity and simple elegance to our unique brand of wedding photojournalism. our philosophy: tell unforgettable stories through images that speak volumes. our work spans the globe from central america, through europe, and on to asia – and is published internationally. we’re profoundly grateful to God for each other, for our children jasmine, juliette and leonardo, for art, for life, and for the amazing people who share it with us every day. until we meet, here’s to your happy ending.
love, phillip & eileen blume
