established in 2006

After photographing my brother’s wedding in 2005 I, (Rodney), started Aesthetic Life Studio. I fell in love with photographing weddings. It’s one of the happiest and most beautiful day of a couple’s life. Wedding days are full of beauty and challenges. I like to call them organized chaos, which I thrive in.

Little did we know photographing weddings would become our livelihood. Now we help couples by capturing the most important day of their relationship, and by guiding them through their day. After photographing hundreds and hundreds of weddings, we not only know how to photograph weddings in any situation, we also help couples by giving advice and sometimes, by planning out their day.

Our mission is to give and bring life wherever we go. So, in July 2017, Janelle and I opened a little coffeehouse in our hometown. The mission of Brio Coffeehouse is to bring life to our small town by encouraging community to come together around coffee. Brio Coffeehouse and Aesthetic Life Studio work hand in hand. Brio gives the beauty of life, while Aesthetic Life Studio captures the beauty of life.

We look forward to hearing from you!
