Robyn and Maria's new studio!

Robyn and Maria's new studio!

I am so proud of these two...I was in San Francisco for the summer last year and I met these two wonderful ladies, did a little friendly consult, and just days later were studio hunting! We found this little gem in the rough on Union Street, in trendy Cow Hollow. Fast forward seven months later and the renovation is complete and Vertie' is ready to open her doors. Maria Mrasek writes "...we are officially open! I am as proud as a new momma but this is something different, I got to design and create a space that is truly me, with my work blown up HUGE! Tutt and I built and created every inch, I am a proud wife as well. We also got to meet and become partners with two amazing people, Robyn and Shawn (Kessler). We LOVE it! it has turned out exactly as we both dreamed...a little eclectic and funky but warm and yummy. And, we owe it all to you..you were the push and the drive and the little birdie on our shoulders...thanks SOOOO much! The outside still has a ways to go...but it looks really cute for now! Wait till all the details come in to play!"

I can't wait! I may even have to come for an in-person inspection...

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts.

We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
