Photography is meant to be cherished for generations to come. It is meant to be artistic, romantic, and timeless. We are committed to making those memories last for you.
This is us…
Anchor; to find stability & security
Lace; to interweave
Anchor & Lace Photography was built around these very definitions.
As a husband & wife ourselves we have a relationship that is based on love, stability, and security. It was when we met online years ago that we had the same nervous energy and anticipation that you might have had when you first met one another. Then we fell in love, and fell in love fast.
Shortly after meeting we talked about the idea of photographing weddings together. It was when we moved in together that we decided to really go for it and be equal partners in this journey together. We were both on the same page and were committed to running a business that was equally personal as it was professional. We liked the idea of breaking down the wall and allowing our couples the opportunity to get to know us, opening the door to allow us to get to know them as well. This is one of the key elements of why our portraits come across so relaxed and organic. About nine months after we had met and continued along with our commitment to so many wonderful couples, we were on the fast track. It was evident that we got it right and our boutique photography studio was a big success. It was time for us to take the next step and get engaged, and we did. We were already living together and it felt SO right. Our photography business continued to boom and the glowing reviews were rolling in (and still are). We take so much pride in the relationships we were building and it was really showing. It was time to take it to the next level. So, we started browsing around town for a property that would be the home base for our business. Then right before our eyes, the most perfect location popped up for rent. A building that was part of the Miller Place Historical Society and was built in the 1700’s. This is what we were all about. We love history and all things rustic, so we gave it a go.
Then, about 4 years later, we continued to further our dedication and commitment not only to one another but our business as well. We were a team, the perfect team, and we needed a new name or a brand that would represent us as a couple and the work that we do. We needed something that represented strong and delicate…you know an opposites attract kind of dynamic. It was time to move away from Alexis Stein Photography (no offense) and introduce Anchor & Lace Photography.
Now, we continue to be ourselves and grow as a family. We are a couple that enjoys the simple things in life. A life that is built around strong connections and relationships. We will continue to do this together as we interweave our own very different styles of artistry and creativity to capture the most beautiful photographs possible for every couple that chooses to make a connection with us.
This is just a little part of our story and where we are today.
If you love our story, we would love to hear from you and have the pleasure and opportunity to get to know you both better, and hear yours.
