We are constantly on the move to learn and grow our craft as photographers. This means we sometimes team up with other photographers to challenge how we see and the skills we use to photograph weddings. Daniel Stark invited Jos to help photograph Tiffany & Ryan’s beautiful Sunshine Mill Winery wedding in Hood River. They had a blast bouncing off each other’s enthusiasm, and learning from each other while capturing some great moments for Tiffany & Ryan. We are great friends with both Daniel and Lindsay Stark with Stark Photography and cannot say enough great things about them as people and incredible artists. We often refer each other to weddings when we are already booked which works well because we share such similar styles and approaches. Check out the amazing, fun, and beautiful story and photos from this wedding by Daniel Stark. Below are a few photos Jos captured to help tell the story.
