Friends and followers of the blog,
In February of 2008 Tyler and I began the exciting conversation of teaming up as one studio, and what unfolded as we put our minds together and moved into one space to work together was this wonderful creative collaboration that made every day much more fun than being on our own. We pushed each other creatively and technically, with regular impromptu discussions and critiques. We wasted *some* time together and shared lots of good laughs. As our two families grew, we also became extended family to each other.
The reason I have always been most drawn to partnering in business with Tyler, is his unrelenting commitment and passion for storytelling through photography. Tyler draws a stricter line to “true” photojournalism in weddings that any other photographer I know of in Kansas City. I love Pam and Tyler’s ease of friendship, their commitment to relationships, and their love for family. We have built our friendship and business on these things over the past 4 years. The Wirken family grew as David came on board, one of the kindest hearted, wittiest photographers that I know, and The Parigos also joined the team, bringing to life Wirken Films.

Sometime last fall, we got a call from Mark’s dad, Wes, and he said, “Just in case you haven’t heard, I met a real sweet lady”. We met Susan a few months later and just loved seeing them so happy together. Wes and Susan have found joy, freedom, companionship, and support in one another.
So in April, we took a trek to their hometown, Marathon, to be there to celebrate their union and have a party with practically everyone in that little town. Everybody brought food, and we had a beautiful feast, celebrating God’s blessing of Wes and Susan to each other. We love you so much!
In the next week or so I’m so excited to share a few photos from Mark’s dad’s wedding that happened in Marathon, TX in April. For now I’ll give you a peek into the wonder of this tiny dot on the map of Southwest Texas. Every time we visit I feel like we’re granted a few days of freedom from the anxiety and fast-paced mindset of our culture. The friends Wes has introduced us to in Marathon are kind, gracious, rooted in nature and community.
For now, I’ll show you a little field trip just walking distance from where we stayed. One of Wes’ good friends Gill opened up part of his land for artists to build little houses all made of recycled materials. I loved seeing the wonder on Char’s face as she explored these people’s handiwork. This was Charlotte’s first trip to the desert. Looking forward to more…
