A Motion Graphics Artist and a Makeup Artist walk into a bar... that's not exactly how we got here, but we're happy to share our story. We are a husband & wife team, ready to capture incredible images for you!
We both work in television and when March 2020 hit, our industry all but shut down. During "The Big Pause," we found ourselves finally having time and energy to explore a profession we both had individually admired for decades- photography.
By the time the summer of 2021 came, we couldn't wait another second so we bought a brand spankin' new camera (Canon R6), a few lenses, and spent hours upon hours upon hours taking photography classes. We started shooting everyone who would humor us and soon after had our first few client inquiries. It's been the best kind of whirlwind ever since.
We're looking forward to hearing from you!
