I never want to stop making memories with you

Two weirdos with cameras, a dream, and a penchant for adventure. Our love for weddings and this business grew right alongside our love for each other. We started filming together while we were dating (we're a Bumble success story!), officially started Shore and Summit during our engagement, now we both do this full time as husband and wife! 

More than five years and hundreds of weddings later we are living the dream, working together, meeting the raddest couples, and getting to tell their stories. It’s truly a privilege having a front row seat to some of the best moments in people’s lives. The honor of giving our couples and their favorite people the ability to be fully present knowing they can relive all of the emotion of those moments with clarity for years to come is why we love what we do. We find it incredibly special that each and every love story we tell has a little bit of ours in it.

patrick & alayna



Patrick is the quiet creative genius with the calming presence that just makes you feel at ease. He somehow masters being both the biggest goof and a sneaky fly on the wall ninja all at the same time. He always wants the people around him to be cared for, but don’t ask him to make decisions for a group because he will simply refuse. He is the king of beverages and will sling you a killer cocktail, throw back an Oktoberfest beer, and may even be known to sip the occasional PSL. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me and I feel so lucky to not only be partners in business, but forever best friends in life as well.

Alayna is the person you become best friends with from day one. She is so intentional with making sure people feel heard and understood. She will always ask how you’re really doing and won’t take “I’m fine” as an answer. She is so adventurous and is always looking for a cheap flight to somewhere new and exciting. Her latest addiction has become her Kindle and in the past year she has probably read close to 70 books with no sign of slowing down. I love her so much and I’m beyond grateful for her taking a risk and quitting her job as a teacher to pursue this with me full-time.
