Josh Baker: Owner/Main Photographer
Vision and People. We have a vision for our photography that is personal, personable, and some would consider against the mainstream. We prefer bold and dramatic photographs telling stories of people’s lives.
We also partner with top notch photographers in several of our markets to infuse our photographic coverage of events. Read on to see more of our Senior Photographers and Assistant.
Josh’s favorite lens: Canon 35 1.4L , The most cinematic lens, wide enough to place people in their environments, tight enough to hold detail
Kaushlesh Biyani: Senior Photographer
Kaushlesh is from Kolkata, India but now resides in Houston, Texas with his lovely bride Megha. Kaush comes aboard our photosessions for our Houston-area clients. He brings a tight eye for the emotion and reactions in people’s faces. Kaush always seems to have a new and inventive way to photograph wedding rings that tell a story about the couple. I love having him alongside because we are the East meets West, the Josh and Kaush Show. The fusion of styles allows for a diversified story telling approach that clients love to see in their wedding albums.
Kaush’s favorite lens: Nikon 50 1.4G, isolating the emotion to allow the day’s events to transcend time and place and allow the emotion to stand on its own.

Geoffrey Hammond: Senior Photographer
Geoff is our Central Texas partner that is always thinking big. From Kickstarter projects to leading photo tours into his wife’s homeland of the Czech Republic, Geoff has a vision and an appetite to get past the average and look for the exciting and new in ways. We have come back from projects and in reviewing the photographs afterwards I wonder if we were even in the same place…. we were, but his eye and work rate provide him with unique perspective’s on the world. He also loves Polaroid and old cameras. You will have to ask him about that.
Geoffrey’s favorite lens: Canon 50 1.4

Andrew Fritz: Senior Photographer
Andrew is from the same small Texas town of Seguin as I am. We grew up together wanting to experience more than just one small town. Andrew has traveled the world on adventures with his wife. I haven’t seen his passport personally, but I would bet the stamps are from more countries than you have.
Andrew’s favorite lens: Nikon 14-24 2.8, Wide angle for those placesetting, dramatic photographs that give a strong touchstone of location.

Austin McGrew: First Assistant
Austin is our assistant that keeps Josh’s head on straight. A musician, a drawer and a designer himself, Austin has the creative touch. For now he is helping out and learning the business of photography. He hopes to open his own design studio in the future, but for now, we mostly keep him submerged in water assisting our underwater work. Austin is also the first touch of post-production and album design. Austin can prove his Texan-ness by his near devotion to Whataburger for lunch.
