We honed our photography in a newsroom, where we met in 2009, documenting the world of our community, stepping into the lives of strangers to give light to their stories. It’s what we now do faithfully when capturing the adventures of your life, ensuring the memories you hold dear in your mind and heart can also be held with images in your hands.
We are photographers, journalists, writers, adventurers, couch potatoes, Netflix-bingers, chocolate junkies, voracious readers.
We met in a newsroom copy room. Anya was a newly hired editorial assistant, prepping documents for an afternoon meeting; Dan was a summer news intern. The copy room, also home to employee mail boxes, gave Dan the perfect excuse to “randomly” bump into Anya as she collected fresh paper printouts, still warm from the copier.
That day in September 2009 launched us on an unexpected path. Though our love story didn’t take shape for many months to come, the shared passion for storytelling and journalism we recognized in each other that day would provide the foundation for a friendship, business, and marriage.
We carry the spirit of journalism we cultivated there into everything we photograph. We want to capture the real, unscripted moments. We want to bear witness and document the event fully. Beauty can be found in the in between, and that’s what we strive to capture.
