Hi, I'm Selena
I started in this industry as an experiment of sorts: How can I utilize my skills as a visual artist to really serve someone? How can I make an impact?
I shadowed a friend on a couple of weddings & I was, in a word, home. I'll never forget the carefree smile on the first bride I ever shot. The unabashed joy, sweat, & twinkling purple lights on the dance floor. The whole space was buzzing.
Since then, I've dedicated my life to serving you, your beauty, your love, & your stories. I'm always in search of the present moment, the candid space between you where your emotions shine. And I'm obsessed with forever exploring our signature light & airy style of photography.
Each wedding is an opportunity for me to show up & honor someone's life. I love to point my camera in the direction of your world & reflect it back to you. And the relationship we build along the way is so integral to my work. Please, never hesitate to reach out during your planning process. I love to give tips on timeline creation, photo sessions within your day, and anything in between. I really live to be your wedding bff.
Hi, I'm Neil
Selena and I joined forces in the wedding industry by an accidental conversation about the differences between photo & video. How they're so often linked but deeply different. We eventually came to this conclusion:
Photo is a singular moment frozen into perfection & video is an actual reliving of that moment.
For giant moments in your life, I think the combo can be really powerful and honestly important. We wanted to serve our clients in a way that all avenues are offered for their big days. And we realized quickly that we could do that together.
So, I'm your main videographer for the day! I love all the small details that make up your larger story. A groom putting on custom cuff links in slow motion, the clinking of glasses across a room of toasts, your feet gently brushing against the dance floor. These are things that keep me excited to shoot year after year.
Some fast fun facts: I love rock climbing, homemade cocktails, and film photography. I may have a slight addiction to buying camera gear, but it's totally fine.
Selena did the absolute most AMAZING job on our videos. The 1 minute highlight is such a perfect overview and the full length one makes me bawl my eyes out every time! It is absolutely everything I could have wanted and more! She did such a great job capturing all the details of our wedding. Now that my wedding is over, this was money I would spend again and again to have this amazing memory of our day! Thank you again SO much!

HATH / Selena was amazing. She did my engagement party shoot at the Botanic Gardens and turned the photos around in less than a week! All the shots were beautiful, capturing every moment of the event. She was flexible with us (I was late as usual), she had her recommendations as well as listened to our wants and needs. She even did a small video clip that I absolutely loved!! She is professional, quick and efficient, and just overall lovely to work with. I definetly be recommending her to my friends and family for all local events. Highly recommended.

To Have & To Hold Photography provided the videography for our wedding and reception, and we could not be more pleased with their work. If you are on the fence about having a videographer in addition to already having a photographer, as I was, let me assure you that having a professionally shot and edited mini movie of your special day is something that you don’t want to miss out on. It’s a day that goes by extremely fast, and as great as it is to have pictures, nothing beats being able to watch and re-live the moments that you want to hold on to. Not only was the video shot and edited extremely well, but the soundtrack that they included was tailored to our musical taste and brought tears to my eyes. I would highly recommend hiring To Have & To Hold Photography to capture the magic of your special day.

Neil and Selena are fantastic in their work. Planning, day-of, and follow-up communication were all excellent, and I always felt they had my back during the process. They captured some truly wonderful video footage of our wedding ceremony, photography shoot, and reception. The delivery of the edited videos was also very prompt considering how busy this time of the year is, and I was impressed at the turnaround. I cannot thank them enough for how well they edited the raw footage of our wedding day into a flawless finish. We will cherish their edited videos for a lifetime. For their price, expertise, and geniality they are simply unbeatable.

Selena and Neil were so awesome to work with! Both were very nice and accommodating to our requests. We recently received our pictures and video, and Wow! The quality of both is just amazing! If you're thinking of skipping the video, don't! Pictures are great, but if you really want to relive the day, you won't be disappointed with the video! I cry every single time I watch it! Thank you Selena and Neil for your amazing work! We can't thank you enough!
