Growing up, Ronnie watched his parents take pictures and the family always having cameras around helped spark his interest in the art form. We all had Polaroid cameras growing up, but he watched his parents use larger cameras that were much more intricate and involved to shoot, especially the Super 8 film movie camera that was used, with spotlights, to document all major events in his youth. These little things started an interest in using cameras to capture moments, and not just point and shoot, but using all of the functions of these cameras to accomplish it. Ronnie was at the top of his fine art classes while at Kingwood High School as a member of the National Art Honor Society. And he went on to study Photography and Graphic Design at the University of North Texas, with a minor in Marketing. During this time he learned in-depth knowledge of using film cameras and digital editing software that has now become standard in this industry.
As the main photographer in the business, Ronnie has a special approach to working with families, children, couples and groups that not all photographers posses…. Patience. A frequent compliment we receive is how patient Ronnie is working with children. We all know how our kids can be, seems like a nightmare to us, but that’s where Ronnie excels. He knows from playing a very active role in his own young children’s lives that patience goes a long ways when working with little ones full of energy! There is never any pushy or frustrated interactions from him that other photographers seem to think is acceptable. We all have our struggles with our kids and he applies that to his approach in working with young (and old) photo subjects. As a male in the industry, which is rather rare, Ronnie brings a different perspective and style that stands out from the crowd than you can find everywhere else. He is not a self-taught enthusiast, with years of studying photography and fine arts at the University of North Texas, Ronnie has scholastic training on photography and design to go with his own natural eye for it. Possessing an in-depth technical knowledge of cameras and lighting, he can make magic happen with a camera and not just frame a shot and push a button. There are a number of reasons you can find that make Ronnie a unique Photographer in the local industry, and until you have given us a shot you won’t know what you’re missing.
Stephanie has always had a creative spirit and a keen eye for design and pushes the creative boundaries without fear of trying new ideas, which has led to some of the most unique ideas produced by this duo. With over a decade of experience in Marketing and Major Event Planning under her belt, she has a wide reach of creativity that can be catered to any individual, crowd or demographic. In the world of Marketing one always has to be pushing limits to stay ahead of the competition, and she never shuts off or takes a break from pursuing this. If you watch carefully, you can catch Stephanie behind a camera on occasion too… you don’t spend decades with a photographer and not learn a thing or two yourself. Stephanie assists on larger photo shoots when possible and is also a secondary photographer for larger weddings and events. She brings a different visual perspective to the table which helps cover a larger spectrum of creativity.
It can be said that Stephanie is a creative genius behind the business and Ronnie is the technical force that can bring life to whatever idea can be imagined. As a husband and wife pair, it is clear that a good balance of style, ability and personality are evident in their work. And with a family of their own, in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, they share a deep appreciation for capturing life’s most joyous moments to be remembered and celebrated for years to follow.
