JOE AND KARI
First and foremost, we are a married couple and we work together at every wedding. Our work is bold, unique, colorful, and most importantly, memorable. The images we make are for couples who love being outside, each other, and who have a worldview that appreciates diversity, social justice, and the preservation and beauty of nature, like we do!
We love sunlight, vast landscapes, showing appreciation for this planet, meeting new people, and travel, all of which are reflected in our work.
We have two boys who are nothing short of extraordinary gentlemen that we’ve homeschooled, giving us even more opportunity to travel.
In our spare time, we are outside doing things in the mountains. Rock climbing, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, yoga, and staying physically fit all keep us young.
Our home is in Estes Park Colorado, but we travel in our adventure van several times a year.
Life is about balance for me, but whether I'm walking with a friend, biking with my family, making time for yoga, traveling somewhere new or sitting around a fire, I try to be fully present. That is how I approach wedding days as well.
I am fully present for your day, focusing on your special moments and connections. I love special glances, subtle touches, and heartfelt hugs along with the surprise reactions and full range of emotions that happen on a wedding day.
I'm into a lot of things. Endurance sports, Rock climbing, mountain biking, running, making people laugh, good design, and simplicity.
On the day of our session together, I'll probably be running around the trail looking for angles, climbing trees, laying on the ground, and making sure that the photos you receive are full of color, emotion, and a sense of where you've just been.
As an extrovert, I recharge my batteries by being around a lot of good folks which is why adventure sessions, elopements, and weddings are key to my work. I love meeting and hanging out with people from all walks of life and understanding how they live.
