About Us

Welcome!  Thank you for stopping by and taking a moment to get to know us.  We are Rebecca and Marco.  Together (with our staff) we are Gutierrez Photography. We believe that photographs are important. They are a gift we give to our future selves and family. Photographs become part of a family’s history. They are among the few things most of us own that are truly irreplaceable once lost. Although that sounds pretty serious, and we take our craft seriously, most folks tell us we’re kind of fun. We…

…love being photographers, enjoy meeting people and making new friends.

…both received cameras as gifts around the age of 10.  It was coincidence and not a part of a major conspiracy, but they got us started.

…met through an improbable sequence of events at Fort Benning, Georgia in September 1984.

…married three months after our first date. We were an Army family for 21 years.

…are best friends even though our spouse can be a dork sometimes.

…love to travel (Korea, Japan, Antigua, Bahamas, Canada, Italy, France, and Switzerland so far)

…are a Coke family, Pepsi is just not an option.

…are not real fond of goofy, trendy fads.

…are always eager to tell you more of our life story, but you’ll have to sit and visit with us in our studio to get all the details.

AnnaClaire, The Studio Manager, has been working with the studio since Feb 2015. She graduated High School in 2016 and was our very first employee that same year. From photoshop to meeting with clients to sweeping the floors, The Studio Manager does a little bit of everything. Being a photographer herself, she most enjoys photographing portraits and still life. While sarcasm is her native language, she’s very sweet and enjoys engaging with our subjects during photoshoots.
