We are Michael and Kate

PHOTOGRAPHERS, ADVENTURE SEEKERS, AND PARTNERS IN THIS CRAZY LIFE THAT WE LOVE SO MUCH. Lovers of family, friends. Parents of Violet and Ryder and our family’s long-haired dachshund, Luna.

We met over 15 years ago in photography school and started working on projects together – first for class, and then for clients. We’ve made an amazing partnership in every sense – travel partners, business partners and parents together. And after all these years, we can spend a crazy amount of time together, and still have so much to talk about.

Michael’s parents moved to the USA from Italy just before he was born. His Italian heritage had a big impact on him – his love of travel, architecture, delicious home-cooked meals, and the Italian Alps are some of his favorite things in life.

Kate grew up mostly in California and Colorado and can’t imagine living anywhere without an ocean or a mountain nearby. She has had the great fortune of learning all her cooking skills from her Italian mother-in-law. To her, two of the greatest things in life are hearing people’s stories and creating stories of her own through adventure, travel and her children.
