real results from our past clients

“Your wedding is not about the photos, but the photos are about your wedding.”

- John Dolan

"indie Bird Photo is simply special - not only in the quality and portfolio of their work, but in how they do their work."

No USBs here. Six weeks after your wedding, we’ll send your photos via an online gallery that you can easily share with loved ones.

Sneak Peaks

We're not your typical wedding photographers

We hear this a lot! That's because your comfort is our priority. We know, because we've done it ourselves, that putting on a wedding can come with a lot of pressures and expectations. We're here to make things simple, lighten the load, and support you every step of the way.

"One thing that stood out to me was the way they instantly made me feel comfortable."
