We are explorers.  A Modern day Lewis and Clark.  We do not seek adventure for the heart pounding adrenaline rush, but the richness of experience…and so we explore; people, place, experience, searching for surprise, for we are not satisfied with knowing what is coming next.

James Christianson and Otto Schulze have spent the past 20 years chasing experiences; photographing weddings on the Great Wall of China to quiet nuptials on top of a mountain peak, weddings for celebrities such as the Ralph Lauren family in New York, to intimate gatherings in the Bahamas. Each a unique experience, primed for exploration.  Together James and Schulze blend styles of documentary fine art and editorial work to create unparalleled imagery.     – James & Schulze
