We met in 1998 when Matt was living in his VW van, spending winters rock climbing in Joshua Tree while Tara was finishing up graduate school in Tucson. Over the next 9 years we were friends living our lives in different places. We would see each other and hang out from time to time, mostly high up on a rock face or on some long, mosquito-ridden approach in the Sierras. We were both rock climbers and sought out the solitude and adventure of the mountains. In 2007 we found ourselves both living in the Sierras once again. We soon fell in love with each other and naturally, we united forces photographing weddings and building this amazing business together. Our little family in the mountains consists of our creatively quirky and curious daughter Zoe, our two dogs Daisy and Cholly and a whole mess of crazy, egg-laying hens.
