John & Carmela
We’re John & Carmela, and this is our boutique photography studio in Colorado Springs, CO. We’re a husband and wife team and yep, that’s us in the photo above. The scenic beauty of Colorful Colorado is amazing and we’re thrilled to call this place home. We’ve had the privilege of meeting and photographing a lot of really awesome people, which is the best part of what we do.
Our road to the wonderful world of professional photography wasn’t a straight one, but the view from where we are now is fantastic. Neither of us recalls being born with a camera in hand, but one thing we’ve both always loved is people watching and telling stories. Those skills come in handy along with a calm, and often silly, demeanor to make sure everyone is comfortable and having fun.
We believe that real interaction provides the soul of a good photograph. We believe this is a people-first business. We believe in capturing a mix of brilliant artwork and real emotion. We believe in providing a memorable, relaxed experience. We believe in offering artisan, hand-crafted products that will last for generations. We believe photographs should be preserved and enjoyed with children, grandchildren, and many generations to come.
From engagements to weddings, pregnancy to infants, children to high school seniors, and families of any size, we strive to earn the trust and exceed the expectations of each client. We’d be honored to earn yours. Our sincere thanks for taking a look at our work, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
What Our Clients Are Saying…
There is more to photography than proper exposure, elegant settings, and flattering poses. Reflecting personalities, relationships, emotions, and telling a unique story transforms good photographs into images you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Our vision is simple: capture special moments in time, create brilliant images, and provide an awesome experience. Not only that, we want those images to last a lifetime in albums on your coffee table and artwork on your walls.

Fine Art Albums & Products
Fine Art in a Book
Our fine art wedding albums are hand-crafted to display your wedding photos and enhance memories of your big day. The designs are created just for you and we make the process far easier than printing on your own. You approve everything before your album goes to print and we make sure it is absolutely perfect before delivery. The archival quality and beauty of a professional wedding album is simply beyond words. You’ve poured your heart and soul into your wedding day, so why not showcase your photos and memories in the best way possible.
Our engagement albums, like our fine art wedding albums, are printed on fine art quality paper, beautifully bound, and designed to last for generations. We take a selection of photos from your engagement shoot and create a custom design just for you. We leave white space throughout the book because it’s not just a photo album–it’s also a guest sign-in book for your wedding. We can also print all the way to the edge with no gap in the middle. Your guests can view your awesome photos and sign your book “yearbook style”. These books have been very popular so far and we’re proud to offer them. Take a look!
We’re delivering your wedding memories in style on our all new USB flash drives inside a custom box. These high-quality drives are made of bamboo with an aluminum clip, and come engraved with your names and wedding date. The custom box is made of Colorado-grown beetle kill pine trees and is of course Eco-friendly. USB flash drives are faster and more reliable than DVDs, and besides most new computers no longer include DVD drives. And oh yeah, they look awesome.
