We are a wife and husband, photo + video duo specializing in intimate and untraditional weddings in the Columbus, Ohio area.
Hola, I'm Grace!
I am an untraditional photographer for the untraditional couples in this beautiful world. I believe every couple has a story to be told - and that’s what I am here to do…tell your story through photos, so that years down the road you can look back and relive those moments and share them with the future generations.
My journey into photography started when I was in middle school, it’s been over 10 years now and I am still pretty smitten with documenting the stories of those around me.
Things I love include the following, but aren’t limited to…cats, confetti, my husband, ice cream, and Harry Potter. If I could be any fictional character I would hands down pick Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter! I’m quirky, introverted and like to be a wall flower most of the time, but I also don’t have a problem with putting people in their place.
In the end I believe our relationship is more than just client and photographer, it's more like a friendship. There's a lot of trust, joking around and love. I've ALWAYS got your best interest in mind and will have your back no matter what!
Hey, I’m Brandon!
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, but that quickly changed when Grace and I started dating I picked up and moved my life to Columbus, Ohio. Oh, the things love will make you do!
Once I was permanently in Ohio I started to document weddings along side of Grace, we have been capturing wedding days together now going on 3 years and it’s been so incredibly wonderful! She likes to call me “The Assistant To The Regional Manager”.
I am the videography side of us, if you add on video to your wedding photos, I will be the one filming. I am also a certified drone pilot, that means I am legally allowed to fly my drone to do photos and videos from a birds eye perspective on your wedding day!
I have always been interested in photography and videography, all growing up you could find me taking photos of my friends on the beach or making videos of everything in sight, there was rarely a minute that went past that I didn’t have a camera in my hand.
When I’m not doing photos or video you can find me working behind the bar at a local coffee shop making drinks, riding my bike around town, and listening to podcasts.
TOGETHER WE ARE THE GOODONES
That’s the first part of Brandon’s last name (Goodyear) and the last part of my last name (Jones) = The Goodones
We have a bit of an untraditional story, that’s why we are so drawn to others that don’t fit in the “normal” boundaries.
We met in the far off land of Cambodia one summer a long time ago when we were still in high school. Needless to say we definitely didn’t hit it off on that trip, I (Grace) can remember hiding behind my mom most of the time so I didn’t have to talk to him. We reconnected on Facebook a few years later over photography related things and pretty much instantly fell in love. I dropped everything to visit him and his family in California and that’s when he told me he loved me (he completely skipped over the part of asking me to be his girlfriend!)
He moved from California to Ohio ( I think that’s how you know it was love, right?!), got married on a hill in SoCal in 2016 and now we are here doing what we love most - taking photos and videos of humans in love.
Now we reside in Columbus, Ohio with our fluffy orange kitty cat named Puff. If you want to see what our wedding was like, check out the link below!
