Richard's First camera was a Kodak Disk Camera given to him as a teenager. From then on his love for photography slowly grew. He is an analog film junkie and now has a vast working vintage camera collection with cameras dating back the the early 1900's. He is very knowledgeable on using and working older vintage cameras that he sells as well as uses in his shoots. Richard specializes in low light and concert photography as well as giving a vintage and film look to digital photographs. His love for Polaroids made him one of the early adopters of the new instant film being produced by the Impossible Project. Richard's photos have been published internationally, used for album covers, and his photos of the 2010 Nashville Flood were featured on CNN and Yahoo.com News. Richard has been taking photos for over 10 years.
Mattie first fell in love with photography when her parents gifted her with a pink and grey Polaroid instant camera in 1980-something. She began using her friends as her "models" and later worked on the high school yearbook staff, which along with scrapbooking her own memories led to a passion for image and memory preservation. She loves being able to capture and preserve memories of special moments and life's milestones for you to cherish forever. Her additional experience in nonprofit volunteer management and event planning has given her the ability to work under pressure and understand the details of planning and organizing events, which gives this team an expertise in keeping your event running smoothly and on schedule! She has been photographing portraits and weddings for over ten years.
