We also have have an assistant/travel companion. She is the cutiest little thing, but she does have a strong personality! She loves being outside, no matter how cold it is! If you have not guessed it yet, it is our dog. She is a husky mix (they think lab mix) and we got her from the Elmbrook Humane Society in Wisconsin. She loves to keep us on our toes!

The name 610 Photo comes from Galatians 6:10

"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people.”

It also happens to be our birthday months. Margot was born in June ( the 6th month) and Jad was born in October (the 10th month). As the slogan states, We love “Capturing God’s Creations.” This means just about everything. We take photos of nature, friends, family, and animals. We take pride in being able to capture the photos the way God created them.

Let's jump ahead to 2022. We have shot 17 Weddings in 5 different states, including our first wedding of 2019 in the Grand Canyon. We are so excited to share more about our adventures with you through this blog.
