Our approach to photography
Our vision is to serve the community by telling stories through pictures. We aim to be like flies on the wall to assure that we're getting the most authentic side of our clients as possible... flies on the wall that sometimes end up gettin' down on the reception dance floor and who never say no to snuggling a newborn baby while on the job. Using the art of photojournalism we tell all kinds of stories from weddings and births to Bladesmiths and alpaca farmers.
What is photojournalism?
Photojournalism is all about feeling. We don't stage or alter our surroundings (with the exception of portraits). We allow life to unfold in front of us as it is. Our job is to move about the space creatively and artistically to capture images that tell a story. Photojournalism allows us to express ourselves creatively and connect with people in our communities. We feel honored when people allow us into their lives to share their stories.
Meet the Heraldos
Pronounced uh-lisa, standing just under 5’0” this bad mama jama dodges and weaves in and out of tiny spaces like a ninja, snapping intimate images that perhaps one with a larger stature would not have access to. When she’s not busy crawling into small spaces to get that “perfect shot” you can find Alisa drawing in the sand at the beach, eating chips, watching too much TV, listening to the Terrible, Thanks for Asking podcast, or having her friends and family take the Enneagram test so she can talk to them about it ad nauseam.
“I’ve had an affinity for photography and the stories pictures tell since I was a preschooler. Whether it’s studying my family or friends’ photo albums or walking through an exhibit, something about pictures of real, raw life captivates me.”
Pronounced stef-en, this tall, dark, and handsome smile talker has a knack for making everyone in his presence feel comfortable and cared for. Stephen is a master at getting clients to laugh and smile genuinely. When he’s not busy taking pictures or researching all things camera and photo related, you can find Stephen cooking up a storm, reading the latest opinion piece on “The Athletic,” stuffing his face with tacos, watching Hasan Minaj drop knowledge on “The Patriot Act”, or looking at before and after home restoration projects.
“I began studying film photography while in high school. I'm so intrigued by all forms of photography as they each bring a different technical and artistic challenge. Using photography to connect with people is what motivates me most.”
