Five years ago, we started our wedding & editorial photography business, which spawned from a passionate side hobby. In only six months, we went from 4 to 32 weddings, allowing us both to quit our jobs at Hewlett Packard (Dana) and Edward Jones (Josh) due to attaining
Since the five years that we started this dream adventure of ours, we have been named as a Top Photographer in Texas by MOD Weddings, won awards for our film photography from Lemonade and Lenses as well as our styling and photography by placing multiple times in the 2017 & 2018 Shoot and Share Contest. One of our biggest honors was receiving the award by The Knot for photographing The Best Wedding in Texas for 2017. You can also find our work featured in top publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot Magazine, Style Me Pretty, BRIDES, Wedding Chicks, ELLE Decor, DOMINO, and many more.
In addition to always honing our photography skills, we greatly attribute our success due to our business knowledge. Dana graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Business Marketing and then worked as a Commercial Product Manager for HP for seven years where she managed entire product lines with revenues of over $400M as well as launching new products and solutions into the markets of North and Latin America. In addition, Josh graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Spanish and a minor in Business as well as working for AT&T for five years managing the highest grossing retail stores in the Houston area, followed by working for Edward Jones as a financial advisor. In the Spring of 2018, Josh also completed his MBA with a focus in Entrepreneurship from the highly-esteemed Rice University.
