- There is nothing too big or too small. What makes you excited, gets US excited. We’re ready to celebrate right alongside you. Give us the deets!
- Honesty. We’ll be REAL with you, because that’s how you will get the most out of this experience. We won’t hold back, and we hope you won’t either.
We're not here to half-ass this. This is what we live for. This is what we love.
Meet Katie Anello
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I saved up my first ever $300 for a point and shoot camera well before I became a teenager, and once I had that in my possession and I began to explore my creativity through the camera, my mind was made up. I set my heart on a career in art. Eventually I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University at Albany and immediately entered the wedding industry. After second shooting for countless photographers, and acting as Studio Manager for another high-volume wedding photography studio for 5 years, I knew it was time to take that leap of faith and go out to start something myself. I've had the pleasure of working professionally as a photographer for over a decade now, but the most rewarding part of my experience is being able to connect with people on a very real human level through weddings and emotion-filled moments.
My work has been published in Sweet Paul Magazine, The New York Times, The Annie Selke Companies, T-Magazine Online, and The Washington Post.
Meet Kelsey Roman
As I rack my brain thinking of how to introduce myself here, I can’t seem to get past the fact that I can’t remember the introduction of photography in my life. I feel like it has always been present at home, work, school, and in society. My love for photography has been one of those slow burns, where it just keeps getting hotter, better, and more enjoyable as time passes.
For the past 10 years I have taught photography, both digital and darkroom. I’ve shared my technical knowledge, traveled the world, and photographed for myself. However, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago when Katie (my partner over there) was like “hey, wanna shoot some weddings with me?” that I was able to experience what photographing for other people feels like. What I’ve learned is that teaching photography is my day job; taking photos for others, capturing their joy, excitement, nervousness, sadness, and connection to one another, that is my passion.
