Traveling Photographers

A new chapter. 2019 will be a special year for us. As if the previous 10 or more weren’t? They were. Because of you, we’ve been able to pursue our dreams, keep food on our table and find the freedom we desired in life. Quite literally, your support over the years has gotten us here. And now here is a place on the road, where we belong. Mallory + Justin, traveling visual artists. We’ve always been but we’re making a point to emphasize it now more than ever. Our art is photography, content writing, 3d motion graphics and animation, video...and we hope, so much more. We’ll be putting our energy towards diversifying our work and working independently more. Adding more editorial and portraiture, more commissioned work along with hopefully more creative director roles as time goes on. It’s scary to put your dreams out there, but I’m a firm believer that if you don’t then dreams they will stay. But what about Ohio? What about family portraits and weddings? We’re still here. Ohio will always be our home. We’ll return every couple months to book shoots and weddings and of course, visit with our families. We plan to share our routes and travel schedules as much as we can so that you can plan ahead to be where we are or book us when we’re near you. So, if you’d like to stay in touch, sign up to be on our email list for all the updates!

Erin + Mark | Evergreen, Colorado

For so long we've had this dream of traveling to make photographs. To document the stories we love in insanely beautiful places. Stories in the mountains, stories on the coast, stories of love, stories of life. This year has been such a fulfilling year in that respect. We've documented some really enchanting places and stories and we're so in love with all of them! Erin + Mark are exactly the kind of people we hoped to meet when that dream came into our hearts. I met these two a year ago in Colorado and we hiked and talked about life and made such a great connection that I basically begged them to bring us back for their wedding this year. Strings were pulled and the four of us were able to make it happen. We were so excited! This was the wedding we looked forward to all year long...because well...MOUNTAINS! The fact that Erin and Mark are literally THE sweetest, most generous, funny and down-to-earth people made it so much more worth it for us to hop a flight to Denver for their wedding! 

We arrived the day before the wedding and Denver greeted us with THE WEIRDEST weather forecast. By the morning of the wedding it was a complete white out-blizzard in Evergreen after raining the entire day before. We were super freaked out, our idea of that temperate 60 degrees and sunny that Colorado usually provides was no where in sight. Instead we had this awesome blanket of fog, giant snow flakes floating in the wind and a perfectly overcast sky. Sure, our fingers were cold and our feet got wet but any bride that throws on her hiking boots for portraits is a ten in my book. Complete with Colorado craft beer, a lake house lodge ceremony with a visit from an otter, and the happiest people on the planet here's Erin + Mark, a wedding we have been SO EXCITED to share with ya'll for so long. 
 

Collected 2015

Way back in July we hosted the second annual Collected. This event, spun out of a handful of ideas and dreams of collaborating, has taken on a life of it's own both years. This year we had the most amazing team of vendors in the industry to put their minds to work creating vignettes of style and creativity. The photographers, all twelve of us, looked with discerning eyes for ways to improve, to see differently, to refuel our passion for this creative passion. The product was a weekend full of crazy downpours, delicious food, bottles of whiskey passed around the fire, eating s'mores out of each others hands (that was awkward and I'm still not sure why it happened), new bonds, laughter and a lot of really great photography. 
Here's my take on this years look!
