We’re hopeless romantics who wholeheartedly believe in the beauty and strength of marriage. We first met as kids in the 8th grade when Gerald had a lucious head of bleach blonde hair and Airika was a budding thespian. When Airika’s family moved away a few years later, we kept in touch the old-fashioned way: through writing letters. You could say it’s from those early letters that our love story began. Now we’ve been married for 15 years, and yes, we absolutely DID get married when we were 15. Ha! 😉 We took this selfie on the beautiful island of Kauai, where we recently got to spend some family time with our two little boys. If you haven’t been, it’s pretty much heaven on earth, and the perfect place to slow down and enjoy the finer things in life. Like sunsets, wildflowers and lizards. When we’re not taking photos or chasing our offspring, you can find us spending time at beautiful parks, listening to live music at a winery/brewery/cidery, challenging friends to a board game or camping our way through the Pacific Northwest.
GERALD /// Lead Photographer /// Editor /// All Around Creative Genius
In addition to photography, Gerald is an avid kayak fisherman, disc golf player and all around fun-loving dad.
He takes his whiskey neat, can smoke a mean piece of meat, and is always up for a nap in the hammock.
Hailing from North Carolina originally, he loves history and natural beauty, doesn't mind getting his hands dirty, and can find just about anything his wife has misplaced.
He's a great board game opponent (if you like losing!), excellent yard game teammate, and is always up for trying a new sport/hobby/game with friends.
AIRIKA /// Client Manager /// Album Designer /// Associate Photographer
In addition to managing all the client-related aspects of the business, Airika is a foodie, wine lover and coffee snob with a severe case of wanderlust.
A die-hard entrepreneur and photographer's business coach, she's passionate about seeing others live up to their God-given potential.
She loves modern architecture and minimalist design (though her desk is anything but organized!), and she can't bring herself to throw away a single issue of Dwell.
Stand up paddle boarding, biking, and deep conversations around the campfire (or over drinks!) are some of her favorite pastimes.
