We are Rob and Sam of Dutcher Photography. We're personable and friendly, quirky and colorful. We love tacos, tattoos, and wildly in love couples. We particularly love working with queer and offbeat couples! We specialize in candid, photojournalist-style wedding photography, and telling your love story with real, joyful, and intimate imagery!

We work closely with our couples leading up to the big day, and are ready with coffee (or margaritas) in hand when you need it! When it comes to the wedding day, your wedding is about the two of you, and while we love sharing our knowledge and tips and being generally awesome, we'll never get bossy or commandeer the day. Most couples tell us later that they didn't even notice us taking their most treasured shots! (Love Ninjas will be the title of our first album.)

We have so much passion for what we do, and we would love to help the two of you tell your love story with gorgeous, fun-filled photographs!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Rob and I love all the little details that make each wedding as distinctive as the couples themselves. We love working with couples who have a creative vision, and we are always super excited to help in the planning process. Let’s collaborate to ensure everything goes off without a hitch and that each moment is captured in your pictures. The perfect wedding is one that has the two of you written all over it! We deliver photos you will adore, memories you will cherish, and if we're lucky, a few fun inside jokes for you to share forever!

Dutcher Photography has been honored with the WeddingWire Couple's Choice Award nine years in a row! Please take a peek at more of what our amazing clients have to say about their experience working with us by clicking HERE!

"As a queer couple, having Sam and Rob as our wedding photographers meant the world to us. They were so great to work with and willing to help us every step of the way. They are so talented and gracious, and we absolutely love our pictures!" – Sarah + Mabel

"Sam and Rob are amazing. They captured all the little moments, scripted or otherwise, and because there were two of them snapping away they seemed to be everywhere at once. The photos are beautiful, breathtaking, and hilariously real. At the risk of waxing poetic, it's as though in an instant they saw each friend, each family member, and captured them at their most "them" moments. The smiles, the laughter, the relaxed interactions. When I look at the photos I can't help but smile." – Carla + Dylan

"We truly hit the photography jackpot when we found Dutcher Photography! Owners/Photographers Sam & Rob are fabulous–professional, organized, reliable, creative, supportive, open-minded, and a joy to work with. We absolutely treasure the photos! Sam and Rob accommodated all of our needs/wants, and made us and our wedding party feel comfortable throughout all of the photos (no easy feat!). They even stayed a few minutes late to capture a spontaneous special dance. We are a same-sex couple and felt understood, supported, and validated by Sam and Rob. Thanks!!" – Mary + Tanya
