our philosphy

“ but you know thats not all that this love is about,


Sometimes its a whisper when you feel you could shout


Or just being around when others have gone


Or about letting go when you want to hold on,


It’s about living life with such strength and emotion


And knowing that waves are just part of the ocean


And that ocean that ocean goes on forever


Just like the love that has brought us together."

Meet Brent + Steph

the cinematographer and photographer behind saltwater

We are a husband and wife photo and cinema duo. We like to keep things simple, have fun and make people laugh. We are high school sweethearts and truly each others best friend. We have a strong love for pizza ( but c'mon who doesn't), the ocean, and the two amazing humans we get to raise.


We have documented weddings for the past 10 years and feel so extremely fortunate to have done so. We consider our couples like family and are forever grateful that they put their trust in us.


If we're not documenting a wedding we are most likely working on a house project (or watching hgtv for ideas) or finding something fun to do with our niece and nephew, mini golf and bowling are our usual top picks!

our approach


We believe that trust is one of the most important things in any relationship but especially when it comes to your photographer or cinematographer. When you feel comfortable and trust with the people capturing your day the more at ease you will be and the more genuine your photos and film will be. We can't wait to get to know you both and earn your trust so that we can capture your beautiful relationship in the most authentic way.


Being in front of a camera for the first time can seem daunting and being “natural” is easier said than done. Our main goal during portraits is to make you as comfortable as possible. We don’t expect you to get in front of the camera and become models, and honestly we love when our couples tell us they are “awkward” in front of the camera, because we get to prove them wrong. We direct and guide you the entire time so that you naturally move into a pose instead of just being placed in one. Which will result in truly genuine images + film.


Photography and Cinematography packages start at $4000 each for local coverage. Destination coverage available as well. We would love to chat with you more about your wedding and create a package that fits your needs, email us for more detailed pricing!


We do offer a discount if booking both photo and cinema together.

Kind Words



" I can't imagine a better photo/video combination than Steph and Brent. They were an absolute dream to work with -- my husband and I joked that we didn't care how the photos turned out because taking them was so much fun. But, of course, both the photos and the highlight video took our breath away. We can't recommend Saltwater Studios more! "
