Hello and welcome to our site! We are Kyle and Betsy Black, the founders/owners and principle photographer and cinematographer of Ever After Studios. We love being able to share in the unification of two individuals and feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful couples! 

We met, fell in love and married in August of 2014. Already a photographer and a cinematographer long before we knew each other, we decided that after our own wedding we would join together to establish a one stop shop for wedding photography and cinematic services to capture the happiest day in a couples life. It was at our honeymoon in Walt Disney World that Ever After Studios was established. We have been blessed beyond belief to call this our full time career. It enables us to give our couples the full attention their big day deserves. We would feel honored to capture the memories of your happily ever after!

Who is an Ever after couple?

those who best work with us would find themselves outgoing, social, not afraid to be silly, love to laugh and willing to try new things! 

What makes us different?

ever after studios is solely dedicated to weddings. it's what we love capturing! we are also blessed enough to do this full time and give our couples our full attention. we are a  husband and wife team trained to bring the services of photo/cinema to your wedding day! Ever after studios can help eliminates the two separate vendor process by offering both services. Does that mean you have to book both? Nope! however, It makes correspondences easier and allocates for our photo/cinema team to develop a strong plan in advance to assure you get the best imagery possible from both services without interference from another.
