Joyful wedding images.

THOUGHTFUL, experienced SERVICE.

"The Frenzels perfectly captured all the love, laughter, and emotions of our wedding day!  Every time we look at these images it makes us want to get married all over again!"
-Sarah & Kevin

Hello! We're Derek & Sarah- glad you're here.

We’re 2 California-raised kids that married young, started a family early, and built a fulfilling business together. We now live in the South, where we spend our days raising our amazing kids, chasing our dreams, and investing in others… all with coffee in hand. :)

We love working together, traveling, designing/projecting, and spending evenings with friends around our table.  

Want to know more? 

Derek is so intelligent...like history degree smart.  He is thoughtful, caring, emotive, and hot...obviously. :)  He’s also extremely handy and can figure ANYTHING out...he fixes cars, builds a deck, makes me a coffee table, moves an outlet...I could go on for a long time.  He loves music, the mans like a musical encyclopedia..how does he know EVERY song!?

Derek has been my rock and best friend for about 16 years, and he’s as silly as me...so we keep each other laughing through all that life has brought. Most importantly, he’s committed to his faith, me, and our family like only a girl can pray her man would be.

Sarah is one of the most determined people I know; she sees the potential in how things can be, and isn’t afraid of a challenge.  As a constant “idea person” and dreamer, one of the most common phrases I hear from her is: “I bet we can do this”... She is charming, loyal, and engaged in the lives of others- deeply caring and invested in their well-being. This translates to her intense love for myself and our children.

She is also a very fun person to be around, and often provides that necessary shot of light-heartedness that any situation needs.  Sarah's my rock, my joy, and my favorite collaborator- we’ve crammed about 30 years into our decade and a half of marriage, and there’s no one else I would rather do life with.

PORTFOLIO

I'm going through my photos for the 10th time today, because I am literally obsessed!! You guys really exceeded my expectations! 

Seeing as Sean and I are uncomfortable posing in front of a camera, you immediately made us feel at ease.  Not only that, we had a blast during all of the shoots.
 
Every single image is so beautiful; how you were able to capture every magical moment of our wedding is simply amazing. Thank you so much for helping us relive those precious moments! 

"Every single image is so beautiful!"

The Frenzel's were phenomenal!

From our first meeting, Tim and I knew they were going to be amazing to work with... and we were right, their energy, mixed with ours, made everything incredible and easy!  

Not to mention, the photo's exceeded our expectations beyond words!  As we walked back down the aisle, a butterfly flew directly across us, and the Frenzel's captured it... words cannot describe what that image means to us!

I want to start by sending you a big thank you for preserving our memories so beautifully!

Your personalities and playfulness made working with you so much fun and helped put us a total ease!

We love your creativity and professionalism and, of course your sense of humor.  Our family and friends love our pictures and often tell us about how much they loved having you at our wedding... thank you! 

"Your personalities and playfulness put us at total ease!"

Guys, the pictures look fantastic! We are beyond excited... they are beautiful & perfectly capture us as a couple!  

In fact, there are a lot of details that we missed in the bustle of the day that we are seeing for the first time in your photos. Thank you for your incredible attention to detail & watchful eye.  

We could not be happier!

I emailed back and forth with the Frenzels often, because they are so knowledgeable about weddings and they answered about any question I had... even ones that extended beyond just photography!

On the wedding day they were wonderful, ready to capture every moment; they didn't miss a beat all day!
  
Beyond their talent, they were so easy to work with- very professional, yet light hearted and fun.  They exceeded every expectation we had!

"we couldn't be happier with our experience!"

you will NEED your wedding photos as an anchor to bring you back to why you FELL in LOVE and where your LIFE was FOREVER CHANGED.

You obviously want WEDDING PHOTOS THAT LOOK INCREDIBLE,

You certainly want PEACE OF MIND that all the emotions and special moments of the day will be preserved well, and

You definitely want to CROSS SOME BIG THINGS OFF YOUR LIST so that you can get back to enjoying your engagement! 

We’re guessing you’re here because you’re engaged and in need of a photographer for your wedding...  

Quick reality: One day, 2, 5, or 10 years from now, life will hit and...

On that day, the amount you spent will be irrelevant, because you have to love your photos; if you don’t LOVE your photos, you won’t keep them handy to look at often. (Trust us, we know from first hand experience, and it’s lame.)

Frenzel Studios Wedding Day Services begin at $4,200; with most of our couples investing $5-7,000 for complete album collections.

Beautifully crafted Images

Thoughtful, experienced service

Peace of mind that your investment will bring a lifetime of joyful reminders of your love

At Frenzel Studios we believe you should have it all!

And that is exactly what we’ve been delivering hundreds of Frenzel Studios couples over the last 10 years... that, and lots of laughs too... we like to have fun with our couples.

So how do you know if YOU are meant to be a Frenzel Studios couple?

Is that YOU? Then high fives, let's do this!

I don’t need my images to be a perfectly posed magical unicorn of high fashion magazine style shots, but rather high quality, beautiful, and relaxed images, that reflect our love and personality as a couple.

I like the aesthetics and details, but I’m not too wrapped up in everything being pinterest perfect, but rather hosting an incredibly special celebration with our loved ones! 

ANSWER: IF YOU SAY “YES ABSOLUTELY!” TO THESE STATEMENTS:

My photographer is not a budget item to check off the list, like securing linens, but an investment in high quality, experienced pros that I know will take care of us well the whole way through! 

With this whole wedding season, I’m most looking forward to: the moment I say “I do!”, busting some moves on the dance floor, and relaxing on my honeymoon with my new hubby/wife! 

YES, BOOK MY DATE!
