“Tom and Jerry (and Whitney) are the best! They are creative and professional. Jerry’s years of experience and Tom’s fresh, fun perspective make them a complementary and dynamic team. Their patient, outgoing, and respectful demeanor helped our special day run all the more smoothly. The photos are incredible. It makes the wedding look even more beautiful than I remembered. I would recommend them enthusiastically to anyone searching for an affordable, yet amazing photographer. In short, we may have kept cool, but Tom and Jerry are the ones that are hot!”

New Studio!! – Schmidt Photo Weddings

schmidtphoto Press and News, Weddings Leave a Comment

A new studio space is on the way!! I signed on the line for a space in the River Market area in Kansas City that is going to be absolutely awesome. We started work last week, grinding down the floors and various other renovations. The floor was coated with an epoxy yesterday and we will start repainting tomorrow.


P.S. We have shot some amazing weddings over the last few weeks, and they will be up soon. Renovating this new studio space has been taking up all of my time.

Tom and Jerry where featured in the August Rangefinder Magazine this Year.  I have wanted to put this post up since we were published but we are just getting going on the BLOG thing.

The Rangefinder is a magazine for professional photographers, not the kind of thing that would be on the magazine racks at the grocery store but it is quite an honor for us.  Here is a link to the PDF if you would like to read more!!
