Hello. So this is us. We have been good friends now for quite a few years and realized early on that we were a pretty good photography team. We shot well together and our styles and strengths complimented each others. As well as each others sense of humor. So we started shooting together. It’s taken us to lots of new places and allowed us to meet all sorts of different people. We both have taken different paths in photography thats shaped us into the photographers that we currently are, giving us a slightly unique but complimentary style. That’s the short version and if you like, can read a little more in depth about us further down.

We believe in capturing the true essence of your celebration so it’s important to us to be a part of your big day while also taking a backseat. We strive to get the shot without being all up in your business. Your wedding is about your celebration of love and sharing that with your friends and family. While we want to capture all your best angles we don’t want all of your guests cell phone photos to show your first dance and us right in tow. We understand what a truly intimate position we are in with you on this day you’ve been working towards. We spend more time with you than most of your important guests, from getting ready to couples photos we don’t take lightly the tender hours we spend together. We pride ourselves on jumping in or stepping back as much as needed, our biggest concern is that you are comfortable.

  Ill skip past the growing up in a small town in Northern California part, finding photography in high school part, the art school after high school part and jump into when I started working in the field. When I was living in New York I happened to have some friends that danced for the MET, so that afforded me the connections to photograph dancers for different theaters and dance companies around the city. This was a pretty unique opportunity to be apart of an amazing artistic community that helped me shape my shooting style. At the same time I worked for an independent (unfortunately now out of print) food magazine called Brooklyn Bread. Which paid me a little money to ride my bike around to different assigned restaurants and pop ups to photograph and interview the chefs and owners. Although it didn’t pay a lot of money it was a lot of fun and usually I would get a free meal out of it. Through whatever circumstances, I ended up finding work in the fashion world. To be honest I never saw myself in the fashion industry but living in New York as a struggling artist it’s a little hard to be picky in regards to work. I ended up working for lots of different fashion labels. Some interesting some very boring. I shot for very small local labels that were just starting out to magazines like Vogue. I road that wave out of New York and into Portland OR where I began shooting weddings and focusing on my portraiture work. This was also where, since this was her current home, Jessie and I really solidified our friendship and started talking about shooting together more often. However I didn’t end up there forever and moved down to Los Angeles to pursue work, and the sun. It was down there that I met a community of artists that I loosely considered family. There were wedding photographers, installation artists, painters, war photographers, carpenters, they all had created a support network that fed each other work and connections. I started taking wedding photography seriously through them and learned the ways of applying all my different skills to shooting weddings. I loved being around the love and the people and realized that I had an eye for it and when Im shooting with Jessie we could understand each other and create an album for people that they really enjoyed. Now I currently live in New Orleans with my lady friend (whom I am crazy about) and travel with Jessie to photograph weddings all over this weird and beautiful world. I also shoot fine art type work with an emphasis on nature I am apart of a studio collective that hosts gallery shows and prints books. There is also a project I have in the works that is a collaboration with different communities and activists around the country in hopes of finding a deeper understanding of our place in nature. You can see either of those projects via this link.   http://justinnunnink.com/

  My love of music is what got me here in the first place. When I was 15 I went to see a concert in San Francisco and waited in line to be upfront at the stage. While I was watching my favorite performer I realized I didn’t want to be on this side of the barricade anymore, I wanted to be part of the production, to be in the action. So I dove head first into photography. I’d spend my time at lunch in our high school photo lab working on projects, finding my own meditation in the dark room pouring over contact sheets and test strips.    I took my passion for photography with me down to Berkeley then Santa Cruz and then up to sunny Portland - but it wasn’t until 7 years after my initial epiphany that I truly dove into pursuing photography as a career. I started by asking my friends if I could hop in their vans and ride on short tours with them. This was how I began to discover what I truly cared about documenting. It wasn’t about the artist’s performance on stage anymore; it was about capturing the humanity I saw all around me. I realized this desire extended far beyond the music world and that’s how I landed here in the wedding biz. I worked with a number of friends, first and second shooting and got to try on a lot of different hats. I found working with Justin wasn’t only effortless but really fun. We both take the role as a lead photographer and are able to easily read and “dance” around each other. Together we strive to bring you a relaxed, fun and cohesive experience., because at the end of the day that’s what we offer one another. Nunnink and I both love to travel so when his heart led him to New Orleans I realized that weddings were also a good excuse for us to see each other. We are the unique type of friends, exempt from the rules of “When Harry Met Sally”, who have spent countless hours living, cooking, exploring and traveling the world together and still haven’t fallen in love. Brother / sister love maybe. Whatever, my point is we got a good thing going here. I still do music photography but enjoy the balance between splitting my time between those events and weddings.
