Alex Butterfield - Director of Photography

I have lived in Fairbanks AK, NYC, Washington DC and have worked worldwide from Guam to Saudi Arabia. I have had fun from the Alps to the south pacific, the common thread has been people; I enjoy people and love taking photos of them.

Annie Shurson - Director of Hair and Make Up

I rent a chair at Salon Sa Bel in Uptown where I do both hair and makeup services. Vintage updos/makeup and edgy razor cuts are my specialty. I am Lead H/MUA for Grinkie Photography, Director of Makeup for TIM+THOM, and freelance with multiple bridal companies throughout the metro. I have done print, editorial, film, and my work can regularly be seen on the runway. My favorite thing to do is to make everyday people look and feel beautiful.
