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...

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
