photos for you
for the moments that turn into stories.
you are not awkward
People fascinate us. Everyone is different and that's what we love most about photographing humans. No two people are alike, allowing us to observe the interaction between two people madly in love with each other and capturing that. Taking your goofy nature or softer side or wild self, whatever your personality is, is something we like to bring out in our photos.
Our time spent together is about creating a safe environment to be yourself and making memories within that moment. We observe. we listen. we encourage you to be your weird self.
"YOU ARE THE MOST MAGNIFICENT PHOTOGRAPHERS, HUMANS, AND COUPLE — AT ONCE BEYOND PERSONABLE, FRIENDLY, RELAXING TO BE AROUND AND YET SUPREMELY PROFESSIONAL, COMPETENT AND FOCUSED AS ARTISTS. YOU ARE BOTH SO WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH. THANK YOU!"
no fake laughs here
We aren't here to tell you to smile or how to feel. When we're shooting we are both always moving around you, shouting out encouragement, leading you into movement. We don't expect laughter on cue or never want you to pretend a moment.
We are always observing. Your movement, your connection with each other. Taking notes on what's natural, what's happening, and photographing that. The big moments, the small. Our style is a mix between photojournalism and editorial, our photos light and shade. Capturing the lightheartedness of being in love, the drama of it all, the joy in it.
When we're shooting we go back and forth between directing, yelling obscenities, and making you laugh to standing back, letting moments happen and documenting that.
We never stop taking photos. From the cotton candy clouds overhead to exchanges shared between your friends to the details you spent so much time planning but probably don't even notice day of. The photos as a whole will tell a story, your story.
Husband and Wife photographers, double the fun
his and her styles —
Although we learned photography alongside each other, teaching ourselves and learning from one another, we have both grown to hone in our individual styles while cohesively working together.
Joe is the more technical, quiet one, the one to remind you to breath, the one to take a step back and see a bigger picture. Kathrina brings in the vision, the drama, she gets in close and will be the first one to break in laughter. Together we balance each other out, silently in sync, our individual styles coming together harmoniously. We each see things beautifully different but together are always moving, looking for ways to play with light, to bring out your personality, getting you comfortable and capturing your essence. We bring a lot of energy and put ourselves out there in order for you to open up to us. Together we're better.
