We're Steven & Jenn Van Elk. We've been married since 2008. That's a long time in doggy years, so we are pretty much an old married couple. If you are an avid listener, you probably realize we are lovers of nerdy things, beer, and the outdoors... and not to get too blue, but we're also lovers. Our love language is to make fun of ourselves and each other and for that reason we are both full of joy. We have two kids and two businesses. Our kids, Nora & Iain have no idea that we podcast but I'm sure if they knew they'd be severely embarrassed. Besides making sure to make our kids feel understandingly mortified of their nerdy parents, we are running Jennifer Van Elk Photography, destination and local wedding photography, located in Indianapolis, and Bespoke Tone, which is a post-processing service for photographers, videographers, and podcasters.

Good morning, detectives! Collecting donations for the Policeman's Ball? We don't have balls. I honestly have no response for that. Need I remind you, Mr. Spencer, what happens when you interfere with a police investigation? Uhhh... The case gets solved?
Remember, Dad, you treat a woman like a person, then a princess, then a goddess, then a person again.

No pepperoni? Really? Plus the blatant disregard and utter criminal lack of ham and pineapple. What kind of a good faith negotiation is this? I mean, this is a hostage negotiation! Well, I don't care if you're not happy with the ingredients. Put the pizzas down and walk away!
Told you so. Touché. You can't touché yourself. Sure I can. Your bad. It's not my bad. You can't "my bad" for someone else.
Two things we are confident in: marriage and wedding planning. And what do you know, we're professional wedding photographers who happen to be married! Not only did we successfully plan our own wedding, we've helped hundreds of other couples do the same.

If you just love all things wedding and marriage, we are your best stop for your daily commute or something to listen to while you are around the house. Jenn loves to help her couples with wedding planning. There is so much information out there that it's exhausting just trying to figure out where to look. Steven loves to make people laugh and tell stories, so it's no surprise that he loves to hosts podcasts. This podcast came about to help couples plan for their wedding and plan for married life. We both enjoy listening to podcasts and hope that this can be one you look forward to a few times a month.
