Meet Tami + Josh
This is us! We are a husband and wife team (with 2 photographers in training- our kiddos!). South Dakota born and raised, we are high school sweethearts who have been blessed to call each other our person for over 20 years!! Our family loves the outdoors, music and the arts. In 2020, after spending almost 2 decades in the desert we relocated our family from Phoenix, AZ back to our hometown of Brandon, SD. We are blessed to feel as though we have 2 homes now. Arizona will always be a part of us, and we continue to work there often, but South Dakota is 'home base' for us and we couldn't be happier!
Photography is not a job to us, it is something we do because we truly enjoy it. Tami views each photography session and wedding as an opportunity to make a real connection with another person. During a photo session we walk, we talk, we swap stories and trade ideas. During these exchanges and this process of getting to know one another, that's when the magic happens. One of Tami's favorite sayings is that we capture 'the in between'. With over 20 years combined experience it is easy to take a pretty photo, but we aim for more. There are all these little tiny moments happening, in between the pretty poses and gorgeous smiles, that is just YOU being you. Those are always our favorite moments from a session or a wedding day.
THE IN BETWEEN.
Whether it is wedding day, a family session, graduation or maybe new head shots we love the opportunities photography brings us. It brings us YOU! Our clients become family. We see them again and again and love watching as families grow and change. We believe in approaching wedding day and session days the exact same, with an eagerness to be fully present with you and to catch all 'the in between'. With the years of experience spent in this craft we have developed a real ease around what we do. It is more than a job, it is a part of who we are. We are grateful you have taken the time to get to know us a little more and look forward to getting to know you!
