Join the Family!

We’re Joe and Karli Simon—high school sweethearts, blessed parents, and partners in photography and film!  From falling in love at sixteen to becoming a family of five, we’ve discovered the importance of capturing memories to last a lifetime.

We created Wedding Tales in 2009 to capture our own wedding in a more unique and personalized way than anyone else could offer.  Building upon this one-of-a-kind wedding documentary, we’ve applied the same personalized approach to our more traditional photo and video services.

With a candid style and a focus on story-telling, we’ve been incredibly blessed to share in the lives of so many amazing couples throughout the years—and we would love to be a part of yours!

A Decade in the Making

We’ve come a long way since photographing our own engagement shoot in 2009!

With nearly a decade of experience and 200 weddings under our belts, we’ve traveled from coast to coast.  Whether we’re in our beautiful home state of Michigan or traveling to destinations like Alaska, California, or New York City, we couldn’t be more grateful to the couples who share their lives with us!

In addition to our wedding industry experience, Joe has an MBA in Film and Television Production and has worked on independent films, televised commercials, and promotional photography and videography across the United States.  Karli is also a talented school teacher and enjoys teaching video production classes!

 

“They Grow Up So Fast!”

Our awesome daughters, Elizabeth, Claire, and Grace, are a huge part of our passion for capturing memories in photographs and film!  They’ve taught us to treasure every milestone in our lives, and we feel so blessed to share this same gift with the couples that we work with.  

When we aren’t having a blast with you on the best day of your life (yet!), we can be found soaking up our little ones’ smiles and documenting our lives in videos like this:
