About Us

Greg + Shawna

Syn•er•gy

  • The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.
  • Cooperative interaction between groups, especially among the acquired subsidiaries or merged parts or a corporation, that creates an enhanced combined effect.

We met in college in the summer of 2003 while studying for our respective degrees in Studio Art. While collaborating on a number of projects it became evident that our own unique approaches meshed gracefully with each other. Soon after graduation we took a trip that would change our lives forever.  With our cameras in hand, we explored the black hills and half of the country.  We discovered our love for The Black Hills and started on our way to our own wedding day after Greg proposed.

Our style tends to be a bit different than other local photographers as we are not from this area.  Although we fell in love with the Black Hills and made it home to our little family, our work still reflects alternative influences.

Wedding and Portrait photography are our specialties.  We think of it as a huge privelege to be such a crucial part of capturing the memories, to be invited to share in the joy and celebration with family and friends for these special days with our clients.  At the end of the wedding day, it gives us great satisfaction to hear how much our clients have enjoyed their experience with us, and even more importantly when they view the images of their day and they are happy.  Our clients enjoy seeing from our perspective many moment that they missed in all of the hustle of thier day.

We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction.  Although we will focus on whatever our clients feel is most important to them, we love the chance to be creative and to step away from the ordinary. Whether you are interested in a photojournalistic style, a traditional style, more modern or artistic styles, we can provide you with what you are looking for.
