known to keep it lit:
"I would book them 100 times over!!!"
“Michael and Nicole are truly the perfect hype duo to any wedding! They automatically make you feel like you're the biggest star in the room! From the energy to making you laugh with all their ideas to get the right shot really amazes me! I would book them 100 times over!!!”
Here’s the (deep) dish — we’re Chicago natives dually based in the windy city and in Orlando, Florida. Our raving fans are in Chicago, and our fam-bam (plus the ocean, palm trees and colorful, on-fleek cocktails) are in Florida. We’re a hyped duo after all, so it made sense for us to have a business with double trouble locations.

“They will be your personal hype team the whole day.”
“I honestly felt like I was with my best-friends the whole day because of how kind, caring, and fun they are. How could you not love that? Someone who is able to make you so comfortable on such a nerve-wrecking day. So, DO NOT hesitate to hire them because that might be your only regret for your day.”

We know that earthy, trendy photos need a fresh, down-to-earth experience. We’re not about to just show up at your wedding, shoot and ghost you after the photos and wedding films are delivered. Instead, we’ll take you out on double dates, invite you to game night and ensure that getting married feels legendary. Sure, you’ll be sad when your wedding is over, but you’ll have drop-dead gorgeous photos and new friends to celebrate with.
