Get to know the People Behind the Work | Our Favorite Things
Our work is more than just the sum of our photos, it's a human experience. And the more of life that we experience, the more we see our life loves reflected in the way we photograph. When I recognized this amazing reality, I wanted to explore how what we loved influenced how we photographed.
As this wonderfully symbiotic relationship of beauty and skill progresses, we wanted to take a few minutes to understand what we love and pursue in life so we could strengthen our fine art perspective, as it makes our work richer and more nuanced for our clients.
From our love of age, history, and a rich patina, to the joie de vivre of outdoor living; the magic of human relationships, the wonder of travel, and our adoration of slow, methodical processes, like coffee brewing and film photography, we see the influence of each experience in our work.
Above all, we're grateful to God for a beautiful life together that, amid highs and lows, is filled with love, joy, wonder, and is far better than I deserve.
What makes your "favorite things list?"
The day always starts with pour over coffee in our home! Fresh ground, slow brewed.
How a country so small can be so varied and beautiful in so many different ways boggles the mind. Cheese, pastries, culture, scenery. France does it all so well!
After 4 years of marriage, our home has become a place of rest and comfort. With so many weekends spend traveling, we love every chance we get to hunker down in our very own space.
Whether it's Vietnamese, Nepali, French, Mexican, Southern, or anything else, if it’s done well, we’ll probably enjoy it! The best part is there’s aways something new to try!
California has a very special place in our hearts because of it’s dry air & photogenic light, endless sunshine, outdoor living and stunning scenery.
In our first year of marriage, we went to each corner if this amazing country and into several others. And we’ve only continued to find new destinations from there. Exploring together, we couldn’t be happier!
Finley our Great Pyrenees puppy brings us lots of joy and plenty of laughter. Who knew getting a rescue dog could be so great?
It may be a bit more involved, but in our book, you can’t beat the slower process and well executed results of medium format film photography.
When it comes to staple pieces like the right pair of jeans & leather goods, it pays to invest in something that lasts. We believe photography is no different!
If we were to close our eyes and imagine the perfect day, whatever we came up with, it would be warm and dry, and most of it would be spent outside. From eating to exploring, we just love living outdoors!
From learning about our wonderful clients to mentoring the next generation of photographers, we love spending intentional time with genuine people. Let’s get to know each other!
Age imparts beautiful character and patina. From ivy covering weathered stone walls to your grandma's silver tray, you just can't rush greatness.
Last, but not least, we really do enjoy each other! Running a business with a spouse isn't for everyone, but it's a huge blessing for us!
