Our photography style focuses heavily on color play, symmetry, framing, and abstraction.

Playful Portraits

not-Yo'-Average Portraits

Not-Yo'-Average Portraits

Plain ol' smile-at-the-camera portraits just aren't enough to capture the essence of you. You are what you do--so why not photograph you doing something? Whether you want pictures of yourself doing yoga, playing sports, dancing, playing music, or the ol' classic of basket weaving, our cameras are at the ready.

Event Photography

Event Photography

Capturing all of your events' important moments, happy guests, food, decor, location, and atmosphere.

Social Media Marketing

Looking to grow your business via social media, but don't have the time, energy, or practical experience to make it happen? Rest easy. We have professional social media outreach experience, 1,000 Instagram followers, and #hashtag like fiends!


FaceBook Social Media Marketing

Facebook has proven itself to be one of the leading marketing tools of the digital age. It has all the features of Craigslist without the "I could be talking to a serial killer" undertone. We'll help you start a page, plan some posts, and up your overall engagement.


Instagram Social Media Marketing

You don't get to 1,000 followers without studying hashtags and algorithms. We'll show you the ropes of some cool tools you can utilize to maximize your profile's potential and get more eyes on it, draft up posts you can share, or post new content for you.


Facebook/Instagram/Pinterest/Twitter/Vimeo/YouTube Social Media Marketing

Want to start social media accounts from scratch across the board, give the ones you've got a revamp, or create interactive content to spread across your social channels? Not every formula works for every entrepreneur. We'll work with you to best target your demographic and where to share your content to improve your community outreach online.

Music Performance/Jingles


This is where Alex Bradford Cobb shines. His instrumental expertise and wit paired with Melanie's snappy lyrical skills mean catchy, high-quality jingles with a fast-turnaround for you. We can work with music and lyrics you provide or compose it from scratch.

Music Performance

Music Performance

When we're not behind the camera, we're on the stage. We are available together or individually for events and commercial or personal songwriting. (Nothing says "I love you" or "I hate you" like a song.)


Alex plays guitar, piano, ukulele, mandolin, trumpet, banjo, recorder, and drums. He describes his singing as "loud," but you can decide for yourself in the clip below. His voice ranges from tenor to bass and he can sing falsetto.


Melanie sings and plays guitar and ukulele. Her sound is contemporary, quirky, and full of vibrato. Her vocal range is that of an alto-tenor. Check out her covers and original songs on YouTube.

Website Design

From-Scratch Website Design

Starting in the first place or starting over? It doesn't have to be a nightmare. A fresh, polished website is a great way to up your company's exposure and bring in new clientele.


A Website Style Makeover

Never underestimate the aesthetic power of great fonts and colors. If you just want a style-lift, we can work with you to pick and implement a new look that complements your brand.


Playful, Fun, Fresh Web Copy

Like our funky-fresh web copy? A good website shouldn't read like a textbook. It should feel like a conversation. Or the starts of one, anyway.  You give us the information you want to share, and we take care of bringing the spunk by rewriting your pages.
