So how did each of you get into photography?
JoAnne – started photography in High School and found it very interesting. Realized I wanted to further education and just used photography on the side. Started with shooting weddings with film.

Jason is more technical
Who runs the business side?
JoAnne does the bookkeeping / taxes while Jason takes the client interaction / social medial
Do you use flash in a lot of images
Yes, will need to help out many rooms that have proper light. Will use the flash to keep the room dark and only show what we want.
Did lighting set you apart from the competition?
Yes…there are people who shoot over our shoulders and we don’t have an issue as they are not likely able to produce the same result without the flash
Talk to me about the relationship between the photographer and the bride, and the groom?
Relationship is about trust…this builds better work and allows the couple to feel comfortable at all times with us.
Love the page on your site called “Client Lounge”
Ability to build the relationship with the client

Last Labor Day we received a call the Thursday before the wedding that the photographer was unable to travel to South Africa…took the job and left within 12 hours of the call. Within 24 hours we were shooting the wedding.
Where do you do weddings?
Mainly west coast but have been to the east coast, New Orleans, couple of weddings in Mexico. Upcoming weddings in Europe as well.
Why should a wedding photographer go to WPPI? Is it just for wedding photographers?
This is amazing to build relationships and networking.
