Katelynn + Cory + the stuffed animals

At some point in the process of getting to know our couples, we ask them, “Why us?” — Katelynn’s answer went straight to our hearts:

After getting engaged, we celebrated by telling Cory’s family – I felt compelled to tell Alicia [twin sister] first and so everyone else in my family was on hold until she answered her phone the next day – then some glorious days passed before I succumbed to the vast internet of wedding-ness and realized there’s a LOT of sameness/traditions/blah (not hating, I am already saving mason jars) — but your work immediately stood out from the rest and stuck in my mind as: THIS is exactly how I want to remember our wedding day. I love the candidness of your photos that capture such small and subtle moments, which are the most emotion-provoking and which are the ones I want to remember.

We hope you enjoy this candidness + the aesthetic + the emotion. It’s so easy for us to document when it’s already naturally there. 🙂

Collaborative Sculpture by AAKSO — Artist Story

AAKSOcover3

You may remember when we posted about Peepwool (back in 2013). Well, a lot has changed for Amy + Kelsey within the realm of their business life, so we thought it would be fun to show you some updated photos of them and their work. They have combined both their talents as well as their names, to form AASKO (Amy Arnold + Kelsey Sauber Olds).

Here’s a bit of the story, from their website: “Kelsey had been making custom furniture and offering a line of bamboo cutting boards, while Amy had been making fiber and clay dolls and recycled wool hats. In 2012 Amy made her way into the wood shop and began carving her figurative sculptures in wood. Amy’s presence in the wood shop has led us to a new partnership.  Together, we are making a cast of human/animal figurative sculptures in wood. The shaping, refining and texturing of basswood is done with a combination of power and hand tools. The pieces are finished with layers of milk paint. As our collaboration relies upon a balance between our sensibilities, personalities and skills, so too do our finished pieces walk a fine line. We are interested in exploring a balance between human and animal; wild and tame; crude and refined; movement and stability; humor and seriousness; adult and child; toy and art object.”

They had just come off of hosting a local art tour at their place, and even after all of that busy, were still kind enough to let us take some photos of what their process looks like:
