Thirteenth Moon Photography LLC | About

So this is us (Bill, Rachel, Walter and the best dog in the world, Jenny Mae) and we are some of the most down-to-earth people you will ever meet. We never take ourselves too seriously, except at home when we're tight on deadlines. We have a passion to serve others and we believe that comes across in our work as wedding photographers. We want to laugh and never waste a moment in this beautiful world. We love each other, we love people and we love this world.  Orlando, Florida is home though we travel extensively for weddings all over, but generally stay on the East Coast. Walt Disney World is our safe haven for escape and fun. For our little tribe it's not another theme park, it is part of the foundation of who we are as a family. Bill was a Firefighter/Paramedic and I was a Emergency Medical Dispatcher and we both worked for the fire department at Walt Disney World. We met the morning of the Minnie Mouse Marathon, where I was working in the medical tent and Bill was on the bike team, helping runners when they couldn't go anymore. We both saved lives in different ways before wedding photography became our life in 2008. 

Our first official outing together was when I asked Bill to my Monday night church service. It was the first time we held hands in public. We sang and prayed together and I asked God that evening to always be at the center of whoever we were meant to be.

We love God and we LOVE being parents together. Walter is named after Walt Disney and will tell you himself that we got him at Walt Disney World!  We couldn't think of a better way to honor the man and his dream that brought us together as a family.  Not long after Bill's early retirement from the fire department, we began photographing 4-5 weddings a week at Walt Disney World.  We had come full circle and accomplished dreams that seemed impossible just three years before.

By the end of 2018 we will have photographed over 750 weddings; so beginning in 2019 we will only accept 25 weddings a year as it is our goal to reconnect with our clients and be there every step of the way, whether it be in person, on the phone, over Skype or walking through your venue with you. We want clients who have ultimate faith in our experiences and love our work.  Besides your new spouse, your only take-a-way from your wedding are your photos and they can and should live on forever, as family heirlooms and a love story for your great, great grandchildren.

Our lives are rooted in being together as a team; being good to others, working hard for our family of clients, and being a living example of Christ's love; we choose to love people no matter the color of their skin, their religion or lack thereof and we certainly support same-sex marriages. Love is love and LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED.

We look forward to hearing your love story and translating it into tangible memories for generations to come!
