I am absolutely in love with these two! We only had a couple of phone calls before the wedding to nail down all of the details, so we didn’t get to meet in person until the day of the wedding. We live out in Nebraska so they drove over from Iowa!

These two have such an incredible talent, and exemplifies the saying “two heads are better than one”. There were moments throughout the night we were able to take a step back and just observe, and in every single one of these moments I saw Rob or David or both of them running over to the dance floor to capture a funny moment over there, then quickly going to the fire pit to capture a beautiful moment over here, they have an obvious passion for photography.

We felt as though throughout the night we were able to be ourselves around them, and that untimely led to some of the most amazing shots we ever could have imagined. Being a queer couple ourselves, we know what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in a photo shoot because your photographer isn’t actually as inclusive as they claim to be. Rob and David both were incredibly easy to be around and be ourselves in our shots. Not only that but it felt so easy to say, yes or no to anything they suggested doing for a photo.

These two will be our go to people for any of our future photography needs hands down. Choose Silk and Thorn!!! You won’t regret booking them!!!”

David has an incredible still of being able to capture moments that feel unique, intimate, and timeless. He is extremely knowledgeable of his craft and has an arsenal of creativity that just makes him a joy to be around. We are so excited to have been able to capture high-quality photos of our wedding that we will get to look back on for years to come!”

“I searched the internet for weeks trying to find the photographers that fit what we wanted best.

When I found Silk & Thorn we got super excited and they definitely delivered! David’s eye for detail and his art is insanely beautiful. He captured. the moments we wanted the most and the in-between ones as well. They were both so pleasant to work with. They fit into our chaotic wedding day seamlessly. Everyone is raving about how great they were and the pictures we got are proof of that! If you’re looking for a photographer who will be there in the moment with you and capture the moments that make you reminisce on your wedding day with a smile on your face, David and Rob are your people!”

“David had great ideas for our elopement day which all fit perfectly into what we were looking for.

I love how he was able to incorporate our fur baby into the day and pictures. He even went out of his way to scout the area days before our big day! He’s friendly, relatable and comfortable to be around. We had never had any professional pictures taken before this, and he made it easy and stress free. We laughed and cried and felt all the emotions, and David captured it all so beautifully. I’m so happy we decided to go with David for our big day! I’m so grateful for how it all turned out, from the pictures, to the scenery, to the way we felt, it was all perfect.”

“Oh man, where can I start.

Everything from the quick response to my web inquiry, to the thorough elopement guide and schedule he sent, to watching David hike with a full kit while holding our random bags – I honestly will never top our elopement experience and we owe that to David’s professionalism, and lovely personality. 15/10, exceeded expectations. David is truly passionate about his craft and is a joy to watch in motion.”
