That's us. Jonny + Michelle. The husband + wife duo behind Paper Antler Ltd.
And the newest member of our Paper Antler family, Sarah.
About Paper Antler
For the past decade we've partnered with the greatest clients in all the land, documenting weddings coast-to-coast and around globe in an effort to not just deliver images that are unmatched, but a wedding experience that is unmatched as well.
There are more options than ever when it comes to choosing a photographer for your wedding - trust us we get it. But we also know that your images are the heirloom and living reminder of your wedding day and as such, while we may not take ourselves too seriously, we do take the responsibility of delivering timeless images that creatively and honestly represent your relationship quite seriously indeed.
Sidenote: We prioritize working with couples who want to work with us; if you're looking for the cheapest deal or getting 100 bids from 100 different photographers, then you may find a better fit elsewhere. But if you're looking to have your wedding-photography-mind blown and have a stellar time all the while, let's chat.
We're also members of 1% for Humanity - a movement of individuals and businesses committed to giving at least 1% of their gross annual income to fight absolute, global poverty. 1% has partnered with established, vetted non-profits around the world to support their efforts through grants that focus on epicenters of poverty-related mortality. Learn more at: onepercentforhumanity.org.
We believe that genuine photos are created out of genuine connection; as such, a major reason why we love what we do is because we love our clients. We also love marriage and being married and understand the peaks and valleys that come with such a profound union. As such, through the different twists and turns that life throws your way, we want your photographs to be more than just photographs - we want them to be reminders as to why you fell in love in the first place. That's the beautiful transcendent nature of photography.
Perms + Such
We take on a limited number of bookings a year so that our clients receive the best experience and photographs possible, and so that we continue loving photography for the next decade as much as we've loved the previous.
While we might cost a bit more than our Great Clips counterparts, trust us, the investment is worth it. Ask anyone with a bad perm.
After graduating from a liberal arts school with a degree in Philosophy/Photography and International Relations respectively, we saw an opportunity to do wedding photography differently. You see, on the weekends, I (Jonny) would assist and second shoot for photographers and was astounded how rare it was to find a photographer who was both skilled as a photographer and a nice person. From those early moments, Michelle and I have been committed to doing our best damn work possible while also treating our clients with respect and upholding their experience to the utmost.
Then in 2015 we were fortunate enough to meet Sarah - a beyond kind and compassionate, mega-creative and talented photographer. Now Paper Antler can officially be in two places at once.
A Recent Review (or two)
If you have seen any of Paper Antler's work, then you already know how incredibly talented they are. Their wedding photos look unlike any other. If you are looking for unique and breathtaking photos, they are an excellent choice. What you may not know from browsing their website, however, is how amazing, kind, funny, and sweet Jonny and Michelle both are. I had known of their work for several years (and daydreamed of booking them the moment I got engaged), so they were a bit like celebrities to me when I met them at our rehearsal dinner. They made us all feel so comfortable with their warm smiles and their open hearts. We had so much fun with them! After the wedding, several members of my family commented on how they just seemed to be wherever the moment was - they were so tuned in with all of the microevents happening. Needless to say, our photos are incredible! I could not be happier, nor could I recommend them highly enough. Book them early - their talent is in high demand.
They. are. BEAUTIFUL!!! You are both artists of the most amazing kind. I feel like these pictures completely capture the entire day, you do such amazing work!!!!!! Thank you!!! Oh my. So many people have asked about you, and I sing your praises but your pictures speak for themselves! We LOVE them all!!!! We honestly love every single one. So do our families and friends, and again thank you thank you a million times. You are both amazing. I am rambling and will just say again, THANK YOU!!! When we get over smiling/crying/soaking in each amazing photograph, we will try to decide on photos for a book! Right now I just want every picture framed and hung up wherever I am.
Again thank you!!
