Heather Reis Fike and Rachael Reis are sisters who both grew up falling in love with photography. Heather ended up falling in love with telling the story of life--maternity, newborns, children,and weddings, she loves  being able to capture such important parts of each person’s life. Rachael, on the other hand, while being phenomenal at helping tell the unique story of weddings with her sister as they unfold, is uniquely passionate about capturing concerts and festivals, finding her passion in the vibrant concert lighting, and passionate, beautiful moments of people dancing and letting their true happiness shine.
