We're a husband and wife team and our home base is a fun loft style studio in the heart of the Historic Third Ward neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We're open to shooting pretty much anywhere in the world, so if you have a crazy idea in mind, let us know and we'll grab our passports.
Our style is clean and classic with soft touches. You will look your very best! While we focus on High School Seniors and Headshots, we shoot portraits for couples, families, and events. We also run Iris Boudoir (women's intimate portraiture) and Iris Studios (a studio share and retouching company).
We've been published in Prestige Magazine in Paris, France, Bröllop Magazine in Stockholm, Sweden, belong to Professional Photographer's Association and are fully insured. Photography is our full-time job. We couldn't be happier to get to do what we love.
We support LGBTQ equality, Black Lives Matter, and welcome clients of all shapes, sexual orientation, religions, ethnicities and races. Love is love.
At home, we're parents to three rambunctious kids. Two girls and a boy. They definitely keep us on our toes and love to travel as much as we do. Our biggest accomplishments is raising three varying individuals who all have a heart of gold. Katja is originally from Sweden, and Rick was born in New York City. Somehow our paths led us to Wisconsin where we met in college in the mid 1990s. We hope to one day retire on the Mediterranean Sea while traveling the world.
