MEET THE TEAM
Kurtis, Primary Photographer
Kurtis is a published San Antonio wedding photographer and award-winning member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). His favorite things to photograph are fleeting candid moments, whether at a wedding or on the streets of New York City. He loves to tell stories by masterfully combining timing, the artistic use of light, and thoughtful composition. His extensive experience with weddings and in the commercial world (from editorials and headshots to architecture, products, and food) means that no matter the challenge, he will rise to the occasion and create beautiful, classic images that will stand the test of time.
MT (short for Maritere) holds a Masters in Industrial Psychology, worked as Director of Human Resources in two Fortune 500 companies, and then became a full-time mother in 2005. That is to say, she is vastly overqualified in her position as Super-Assistant and she puts her skills to very good use. She genuinely and deeply cares about others and comes with a ‘magic bag’ emergency kit with everything you wish you would have remembered in it. MT has a great eye as well and a knack for reading people which makes her an indispensable part of the team. Born-and-raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, she also speaks Spanish fluently.
Justin, Dedicated Photo Editor
Justin is the backbone of our business, making last week’s photographs shine while we’re busy creating this week’s. He makes it possible to keep our turn-around lightning fast; while we quote 4-6 weeks for wedding images to be ready, our average is actually 2-3 weeks. Husband, father, purveyor of fine whiskey and moustaches… he learned to become ultra-efficient and ultra-consistent while working as lead editor at one of the most respected post-production labs in the country. When he’s not busy editing for us he runs his own photography business with his wife, Hadley(s) Photo!
Network of Great Photographers
When it comes to weddings, we exclusively work as a team of two equally-skilled and experienced lead photographers. For us a second photographer is not a mere bullet-point on a marketing handout or price-sheet, they add a tremendous level of value because we only work with the best. Our network of photographers spans the globe and no matter the size, no matter the location, you will have two amazing photographers capturing unique perspectives. Having two great photographers also means that one of us can get the safe shot while the other get something more creative.
THE EXPERIENCE - AT A GLANCE
Specializing in San Antonio and Houston wedding photography, we are also available for domestic and international travel. We tell stories with the artistic use of light, composition, and with a discreet, documentary approach. Our commitment to you is to turn fleeting moments into timeless images that mean something, devoid of gimmicks, fads and formulas.
We are a boutique photography studio obsessed with service and quality, accepting a limited number of commissions each year. Everything we do stems from the core belief that your wedding day should be filled with joy and that you should be catered to. Our unique team approach allows us to ensure that you experience this special day with a minimum of stress.
We will discreetly capture the moments of your wedding day while my amazing super-assistant makes sure that you have everything you need and that the little emergencies of the day are dealt with swiftly. We are there to capture moments candidly without making your wedding all about having your picture taken.
It’s important to us to not only photograph beautiful portraits, but to do so efficiently so that you can get back to celebrating with your friends and family! The hours are precious and few on your wedding day, and we want the majority of your time to be spent making memories while we capture them beautifully for you.
We believe that true professionalism is based on how you perform when all the cards are stacked against you, not how you perform when everything goes perfectly. Weddings can be chaotic, but we are always able to make the best of any situation. When you look back at your wedding album, you won’t remember the stress, you’ll just see and feel how amazing your wedding day was.
We believe that great wedding photography should be a mix of documentary photography, timeless portraiture, and still-life (details), in order to fully tell the story of your day. We believe that photography should not take over your wedding day, and we plan extensively for each wedding so that we can achieve fantastic results as efficiently as possible.
