we are a husband & wife team
CheyAnne & Doug Keese
Hello! Thank you so much for visiting our site and taking the time to connect with us and our work!
If you’ve come to this page before the rest of the site, please grab a cocktail or a glass of your favorite
wine (unless you’re at work, but if you pull it off there, we won’t judge!) and take your time viewing
the images and weddings that we are so passionate about capturing.
Even after almost 12 years, we still get teary eyed as we edit our clients’ photos. That’s what we want for you: for every emotion of your wedding day to live on through your images. Your love story is the shining star, and we want to be the spotlight that allows everyone to see it. It doesn’t end with “I Do.” That feeling of forever will dance through your spirit as you relive those special moments with the photos of Arte De Vie.
With backgrounds in photojournalism and years of experience in wedding photography, documenting the real and candid moments of your personal story is what we do best. There are moments during the wedding day you may not realize are so special at the time, but when you look back on them through our lens, they become a treasured keepsake.
We know this firsthand. My (Doug) favorite photo of CheyAnne is when she took a pedi-cab through the French Quarter on the way to our first look.
She’s laughing; her dress is blowing up in the air. I know her, and I know her faces, and I can tell that this is her face of pure, excited joy and happiness.
I wouldn’t have seen that moment without our photographer, for whom I’m forever grateful.
That’s exactly what we want for you.
When the big day arrives, let the celebration of life and love live in your every thought.
Leave your worries of the world on the dance floor! We’ll make sure to get a great shot of it.
The vendor that mattered most to me was our photographer. And not just their level of talent mattered, but who they were meant something to me as well. Because think about it, these people are sharing the most private, intimate moments of your life. The moments your guests may not see. And to say that Doug and CheyAnne were the most amazing people to have beside us for these moments and for our entire wedding day feels like such an understatement. Their passion for what they do is matched by what incredible human beings they are. We see them as friends now, not just the people who took our wedding photos. And even better then that, we have photos that I absolutely cherish! We are so impressed with our albums, our fine art prints, and we DIE for the film images. Doug’s old camera captured our favorite looks. It was the BEST decision I made for our wedding, and now we have beautiful images forever, and new friendships to boot!
