So you're engaged, CONGRATS! Now's the time to start planning your dream day, YAY! We've documented love stories for the past 5 years all over the US – New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Portland, Austin, Asheville, and San Fransisco, to name a few. Micro-weddings, backyard weddings, destination weddings, national park elopements alike, we are HONORED you're considering us to be your photographers / videographers for your day.
Couples looking for images and video that will last for generations to come.
Couples who are in love and want to opt for a non-traditional way to celebrate their unity in marriage!
Couples who value their wedding day experience and want a holistic approach to photo + video.
Couples wanting to have an intimate experience on their wedding day (think backyard wedding, elopement at your favorite park, destination wedding with your closest friends + family.)
Wherever you say "I do," we want to be by your side, documenting the moments and the milestones for you. From engagement, to wedding/elopement day, and beyond. Let's make your day unique to you!
Wanting to throw a weekend-long destination wedding with your favorite people? We offer collections with up to 3 days of coverage – travel included!
Having a backyard wedding in the Midwest? We service couples in Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Kentucky!
Eloping in the PNW? We'll send you recommendations for locations, preferred vendors, and even take care of applying for permits if need be!
By this time, we'll basically be family. Our heart is that we truly get to know you and your story before showing up to document it, because then we get to just focus on the moment and celebrate you! Whether your day is 3 hours or 12, we'll be there capturing the moments you're not even aware are happening! You'll be able to relive these moments with your significant other and loved ones for generations to come (and that's our favorite part).
This is where your wedding/elopement dreams start to fall into place: you book a venue/pick a location, send out save-the-dates, apply for your permits... We'll be there every step of the way to make sure your wedding/elopement experience is the best! And it's loaded with freebies: consultation calls/coffee, a engagement/adventure sessions, questionnaires, guides, follow up/clarity calls, fun mail days, you name it! We want you to feel served, celebrated, and prepared for your wedding/elopement day with us.
So you've looked through our website and social media pages; watched the YouTube video on "How does all this work?" (see below); you've read the reviews; now what? Let's hop on a video call and get to know each other! We'll ask you a million questions since we're obsessed with couples's stories; we'll dig into to your dreams of your wedding day, and then chat through different collection options we offer. Once you're ready, we'll get you on the books and start planning your dream day!
Let's walk through the process with you! We know it can be daunting trying to find the right team to document your day, so here's the run down on what your experience will look like with us. Or click below for a walk through the process!
We know planning your wedding/elopement day takes time, energy, effort, and money (check out our planning guide above for a more in depth resource!) And we also know that picking your date and/or venue comes first, and then booking your photographer/videographer usually comes second! We usually book 1-2 years in advance, so the sooner you reach out the better (especially for weekend wedding days). If you're wanting to elope on a weekday in the next few months, you're in good company because we usually have more availability throughout the week! Avodah Co. is currently booking for 2023-2024!
Avodah Co. is a team of creatives: Iris Elise your photographer, Jordan your videographer, and if you elope with us, we also get to be your florist, baker, and officiant all in one?! We've been serving couples for 5 years and are passionate about celebrating marriages all over the world and documenting love stories. "Work, Worship, Service" is the meaning behind our Hebrew name and is the backbone of all we do!
We support local, national, and global organizations monthly. Your investment in Avodah Co. not only helps us thrive, but also pours into lives in our community and beyond. Check them out here: Soma Downtown (Indy), GirlTrip (Portland), Young Life (Germany) and The Mercy Kids (Nicaragua).
