Our journey began in high school as close friends and has evolved into a dynamic partnership in photography. With over twenty years of combined experience, we've honed our skills and developed a unique approach to our craft. Jen's background includes formal training in graphic design, photography, and business, while Jesse is a self-taught photographer with a strong eye for graphic design.

Our friendship has fostered a collaborative working dynamic. Our primary focus is understanding our clients and delivering work that authentically represents their distinctive requirements.


Outside of the photography world, Jen is an avid traveler and enthusiast of art, crossword puzzles, scotch, true crime shows, and live music. Jesse is a devoted husband, father of three beautiful daughters, cooking aficionado, and a talented musician in a Folk-Americana band, The Lone Canary.
