this is how we do it.

2008 was ridiculous. Our first year doing this here photography gig was more fun (also read crazy, risky, adventurous and just down right awesome) than you could shake a stick at. The following is just a quick snapshot of what it’s like to run around with us-cameras in hand.

    Jessica - Brightens,
    I’m a photographer starting out in Austin, TX. I feel like I should confess. Your name was given to me this winter from a good friend who knows you from high school (I think). She went on and on about how talented ya’ll are. I couldn’t agree more. I just felt like it was time I said hello, because I feel like I’ve gotten to know ya’ll in the last several months. Thanks for doing this photography thing with excellence.
    -Jessica Schmale.

    Cio - haha. This was GREAT! You two look like you have lots of fun,
    and that’s what it’s all about! Ben, I have to say you do take some
    risks to get some great shots (like putting on leg on one wall and the
    other by the rail, and it’s so worth it. That’s hardcore. *high five* You guys rock!
