pete redel photography

Have you ever felt that you were destined to do something? That everything you have done in your life has led to this one thing? That's the way I feel about my life as a photographer. 

Over the course of 11 years and over 300 weddings, I have realized that some of the most important moments happen both at the very beginning and end of each day. Knowing this, I include unlimited hours in most of my collections. My hope is that everything I offer is exactly what you are looking for, but if there is something that you do not see, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Andréa and Claudia are longtime friends who always dreamed of ditching corporate America to have a business of their own. In the spring of 2013, after outlining dozens of business ideas on the backs of napkins and envelopes, they had a life-changing phone call.  In 2014, they opened the nailsaloon, where they can do just that: sit together and enjoy a scrub and foot massage, while they catch up on the business and everything that isn’t work-related – which they vow to do on the regular.
