We are a Dallas/Fort Worth-based photo and video team. Our story includes a husband and wife that went to high school and college together and then got married in 1994. They started PHOTOconcepts more than 25 years ago.
Along came three kids and more than 1,000 weddings, countless families and graduates ... and we still get excited for every job! We are blessed to have girls that enjoy working along side their dad. They are amazing photographers and videographers - each having their own special touch. But it's their combined vision and eye for every detail that makes this family team special.
Our passion is to provide images and film that captures your moment in time. We hope to capture the happy tears, the laughter and the story behind each of our clients. We know life is incredibly precious and we want to give you the images that will take you back to that moment and remember your story - for generations.
We hope to meet you and your family and capture your story.
Our life isn't perfect but we love every second. We are so thankful for our family, friends and clients.
This is Gus -- he is "THE" soul of PHOTOconcepts and of our family. He's been photographing and filming for more than 30 years. He has a degree in civil engineering but he loves looking through the lens and capturing life. He definitely has just the right mix of right-brain/left brain. He's funny, sometimes quiet but one of the hardest working people you will ever meet. This company is his passion and he always gives it his all.
As lead photographer and videographer, Gus is always in contact with his couples both before and during the wedding. He's a great communicator and strives to take all the stress out of wedding, event and portrait photography/videography.

These three admittedly can get a silly when together but while working - they are all business.
