Rivets and Roses

Best Moments of 2016!

2016 was an amazing year for us! We photographed some absolutely amazing weddings and had the best time with our clients. We launched our new website and also introduced new branding for all of our companies! To top it all off, our sister company, Rivets and Roses had their best year ever!

I wanted to take a moment to look back at the 2016 season and share some of my personal favorite images from each wedding. Once they were all selected, I realized my favorite images are still deeply rooted in moments. Moments that we can't predict and pictures that might not be technically perfect, but you can feel exactly how it felt to be in that space. 

There are so many reasons why I love to photograph weddings, but working along side my team to document these days is always what keeps me coming back. A big thank you to all of our clients for an amazing year - and congratulations to you all!



PHOTOGEN INC. // New Brand Identity!


Brand identity by dschwen

I am super excited to share the new identities of all of our companies! This is our eleventh year of business and as our work and businesses grow and become more refined, so do our brands. Last year, we took on the big project of updating all of our websites and this year brought along the next phase of that project, which was to unify all of the brands. We worked with the brilliant mind of David Schwen of Dschwen to bring this all together and I am SO happy with how it turned out! Each company still has it's own individual presence, while still feeling cohesive with all we do here in the studio. 

PHOTOGEN INC. is a luxury wedding photography brand that takes me around the world to photograph weddings. Our sister company, Rivets and Roses, is an affordable wedding photography studio, serving the Midwest and features the work of six different artists. Part of the new identity was creating branding that separated the different price points and client base of work. As PHOTOGEN INC. grows, it has become more grown up and refined, while still staying a bit badass. The Rivets and Roses brand took on a friendlier font that is more approachable!
