our story

We are a husband and wife team who met as professional dancers in New York City. Much of who we are is embedded in our history together. We are former performing artists who anticipate the moment and thrive on the energy of a celebration. We are kindhearted people who appreciate the love of family and the joy of friendship. We are hardworking artists who value the beauty and emotional power of documenting love and life through photography.

We play to each other's strengths and work together seamlessly, photographing thoughtfully captured details, emotional portraiture, and candid moments throughout the day and on the dance floor. The images from a wedding are the heirlooms of love, and we are dedicated to capturing them fully and honestly.

While always professional, we are a down-to-earth and light-hearted pair.

Our current and former clients include: Public Art Fund, Peloton, Lululemon, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. We annually photograph for the Joyce Theater, AdCouncil, Warner Music Group, and Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. Travis is also an accomplished dance photographer. Find his work here. His most recent exhibit "First Breath" was shown at The Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery at Lincoln Center.

Our work spans across event, editorial, design, and dance photography. You can view the breadth of our personal work here.

TheBennetts Highlights_045.jpg

"We were searching for a photographer with soul. Someone who could provide exceptional memories for a once-in-a-lifetime event: our wedding. Someone capable of capturing every poignant moment with exceptional creativity and sensitivity. After checking out the beautiful work on their site, it was immediately obvious that we had found exactly those photographers...Their work far surpassed all that we had been dreaming of. Not just in photographic quality, but in the way they were able to capture every subtle expression of the love and adoration in our eyes. Even just the quiet moments — as if we had been here at home all by ourselves. It was pretty amazing. We also found that Travis and Kimberly are down to earth, easygoing and a sheer delight to work with. From the very first moment, they made my fiancée/now wife and myself feel totally relaxed and at ease — which in turn led to our becoming completely comfortable, natural and without the slightest feeling of awkwardness."
