Meet  Our Team

Ever since I was little I have always had a strong attraction and appreciation for photography. My parents were glued to their cameras, making sure to capture every moment and memory for my siblings and I as we grew up and as I got older I learned to appreciate being able to look back on all of those photos and to have so many photo books from my childhood. When I got my first camera I was so excited to finally be able to do that myself and I very quickly wanted to be able to capture memories outside of my family. I started reaching out to friends and family asking if I could take photos for them and it slowly grew and grew and got me to where I am today! I absolutely love being a part of the team and being able to capture some of the most important days in peoples lives. It’s such an amazing feeling being able to learn about every couples unique love story and then being able to experience and capture their special day with them!

Iced Vanilla Latte + Baked Ziti

Hey there, my name is Emma! I am an avid coffee drinker and a total homebody. I would much rather have a girls' night in with pizza, Mikes, and a good movie vs. going out. My artistic journey started at a young age when I would create doll clothes from scratch and put on dance shows in my grandma's living room. I started photography when I was around fifteen-years-old. My favorite part of photography is getting to connect with clients and getting to know them personally. The connection is my favorite part of the job! I love working for Beyond the Pines because their love for their couples is unreal! I am so grateful I get to be apart of their team and get to love on their couples alongside them!

Iced Vanilla Latte + Cheeseburgers

Hi I’m Pete! I’ve been operating as a videographer and editor for three years and a teller of stories for much longer. I originally became interested in video production as dancer and musician. Rhythm is vital to any story and it is the core of my filmmaking. Other than making videos, nothing gives me more pleasure than eating my Father’s home cooked spaghetti and drinking a glass of Jeremiah Weed and lemonade.  Beyond the pines shares my passion for communicating your story to film. I could tell the first day I shot with Megan that this was a team that truly enjoys being around people in love. When you love what you do, making quality comes naturally and that’s why I am so grateful to be a part of Beyond the Pines Photography.
