Who are we?
We're Tina and Billy, wife and husband photography team new to Palm Springs, CA from Philadelphia. We were brought together by our passion for creative expression- Tina an internationally published fashion and fine art photographer, and Billy, an internationally performed musician. Naturally, we fell for each other on the set of a music video shoot where Tina was providing the fashion aesthetic, and Billy was preforming (five years later, we chose the video director to officiate our wedding!). As partners, parents, and creative individuals, we think the key to happiness is finding a good balance and doing what you love to do. We like to think of ourselves as ambitious dreamers on the journey of a lifetime. We like adventure and we love travel almost as much as we love our craft. But, most importantly, we love what we bring out in each other and it shows in our art.
Why do we love to photograph weddings?
Being chosen to capture someone's wedding day is such an incredible honor. We feel instantly connected with our couples because there is already a level of trust and agreement on style and aesthetics. The fast-paced and celebratory environment is really enjoyable and the challenge of finding the best photo ops is exciting. Most of all, what we love about shooting weddings, is knowing that we are creating pieces of work that will artistically portray the celebration of love that a couple will cherish for the rest of their lives!
We have a strong appreciation for the intimacy that exists between two people. It's this passion that drove us to combine our creativity to capture these momentous occasions on "film". The sincerity, vulnerability, and romance that only lovers can express is what we aim to catch.
Our photo style?
We usually describe our style as "directive photojournalism". Every couple wants their photos to look REAL, natural and un-posed, but they also don't know what to do- where to stand or what they should be doing in a photo. We are great at getting our couples in a flattering position with the best scenery and lighting and directing them in order to capture truly emotive and timeless images. We also have a lot of fun with our couples while we're working - while we are professional when we need to be, we are complete goofballs. Whether you're laughing with us or AT us, we promise to capture not only the romance between you but the joy you share together. :)
We know how important photographs are in recalling emotions and sights. We know how special it is to capture a couple madly in love. We cherish the opportunity to create images that are honest and everlasting.

I might be biased, but Rhythm & Bloom is THE BEST choice for wedding photos. Tina has captured so many important moments for myself and my family over the years. When my fiancé and I decided to get married in Tuscany, it was never a question that we wanted Tina & Billy to come and shoot our most intimate moment - the best decision ever! Tina captures the soul of a moment so beautifully that you are instantly transported back to those seconds in time. She delivers a perfect mix of "must-haves", emotionally-honest candids and all the beautiful but fleeting moments in between that you didn't even know you'd want. She makes you feel at ease, gives you just enough direction, and has this superior talent of making awkward-feeling poses look like pure magic. We are so thankful.

Tina photographed our destination wedding and the after party and we could not be happier! Tina is a breeze to work with, she captures the raw emotion of the moment with her candid style and delivers a beautiful, polished product. She’s got a great eye, great style and makes you feel completely at ease. Tina, we feel so lucky that you captured our wedding memories. Thank you for your tireless work, support, and killer photos.

Tina is a photographer of exceptional talent. With her keen eye for style and intuitive nature, she takes photos that are raw yet otherworldly, capturing fleeting moments of magic. She has done photos of me many times and I feel at ease with her, never stiffly posed or fake. I have also worked as makeup artist with her for almost a decade and she consistently captures the very best version of her subjects. The cool, stylish, sexy, beautiful version of ourselves that we always hope a photographer will bring out. She gets it, every time.
