Peanut Butter & Jelly. Batman & Robin. Bert & Ernie. Beyonce & JayZ. Karin & Roger. Yep, some things just go well together.
Both in our marriage and professionally, we are a team. Most people couldn't handle working side by side, day in and day out with their spouse. We're lucky - we not only make it work, we actually... brace yourself... enjoy it. We think of our business as we do our life - a journey, and we chose to do both hand in hand.
Ten Sixteen Photography is a combination of us - our dreams, our love, our style and our passion - and because our business is based on a union (not only the union of us, but of others), we named it after our own wedding date: 10/16.
Our business reflects us. We are firm believers that you attract what you are. When you look at our photos you see couples who are sincere, genuine, fresh, young, intimate, inspired, and in love. Those words reflect our style and us - and hopefully those words reflect you as well!
Throughout the years we've been in business, beyond the knowledge and experience we've gained, we have gained something we consider priceless - and that is people we proudly call "friends". We have a difficult time referring to the brides and grooms we have photographed as "clients", because the majority have become close to us. The relationships we form are much deeper than a photographer / client relationship. It's no secret that we measure our success not by the amount of money that we make, but by the number of people who we have met that have touched our lives - and hopefully vice versa. So while we hope to have you as clients... we hope even more to have you as friends.

Traveling photographers of your DREAMS!!!!
I'm not sure if there are enough words to describe how wonderful Karin and Roger Doolin are, but I will try my best because these two deserve it!!! I first fell in love with TenSixteen photography after seeing my friends STUNNING wedding photos. Since I was a part of her wedding party, I also had a glance of the Doolin's warm personalities (Karin's infectious laugh will surely put a smile on your face!) I knew I would have them photograph my wedding someday! The day finally came, except now I live in Colorado. Traveling so far was a lot to ask of Karin and Roger, but they were more than willing to pack up their truck and camper and head west! From our entire wedding planning process, hiring these two was the best decision we made!! We met with the two of them at their home several months before the wedding. We discussed options and packages, and they were very thorough about what to expect throughout the process. Their openness and lightheartedness made us feel like we were sitting with old friends! We immediately felt comfortable with them, which I think is so important to feel when hiring a photographer! We decided that we would love to have some photos taken on top of a mountain, which would have put us in a tight time frame the day of the wedding. Karin and Roger suggested we do a "first look" photo shoot a few days before the wedding. This idea seemed strange to others, but for us it made perfect sense and we can't thank them enough for suggesting it! We drove up to redrocks amphitheater and had our first look shoot, followed by a long drive up to the top of Mt. Evans for more photos. The photos taken that day are so beautiful, I cannot even believe that it is us in them. It was windy and cold, (and sometimes scary walking in my heels) but these two made us feel like rock stars! They truly have such a creative eye, and knew how to work with the changing light and surroundings. I am still blown away every time I look at these photos! Our day spent in the mountains with the Doolins is one we will never forget!! A few days later was the big day! You would think these two would be sick of seeing our faces by then, but they were there to capture all of our special moments with smiles on their faces! I'm usually a go with flow type of person, and sometimes that can be a challenge during important events. Karin not only was there to photograph, but I swear she helped keep my head on straight! We had several family members to photograph with after the ceremony, and these two worked through those photos fast and efficiently! They are so organized and on the ball, and also incredibly cheerful which makes the experience much more delightful! My husband and I tend to be a bit awkward in front of the camera, but Karin and Roger made us look and feel so relaxed and beautiful. The compliments I have received from friends, family, acquaintances, and clients usually start along the lines of "YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS ARE INCREDIBLE!!!" 6 months later and I'm still hearing about my photos! Our wedding was a surreal experience, and having such wonderful photos to look back on together means the world to my husband and I. That being said, the friendship we gained in Karin and Roger has been the best thing to have come out of our wedding (other than you know... us being married!) We know if you hire TenSixteen, you will understand exactly what we mean! Whether you are planning a wedding in Missouri, Colorado or anywhere in between, TenSixteen will more than exceed your expectations!!Sent on 02/11/2019
