About Mindy

I always knew I needed a creative outlet, but I never dreamed it would evolve into something as great as Two Are Better. I’ll be the first to admit that my formal degrees are actually in biology & education. What started as curiosity about Ryan’s DSLR became him teaching me the art of photography. It wasn’t too long after that when I discovered that I actually loved videography the most.

Sometime in all of that time of discovery, we jumped into the world of weddings and created Two Are Better. It’s been a learning experience – not only about the ins and outs of owning a videography business, but also about finding my interests and passion. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not just dreaming up this awesome adventure.

So what else do I love to do besides film weddings and families with Ryan? I also love nature and spending time outdoors, whether that’s riding bikes or fishing. Crafting is another way I love to be creative. I enjoy being conscientious about my health and the environment – like creating healthy meals and making my own laundry detergent. I love to cuddle on the couch and watch the latest Parks and Rec episode or the newest movie. One of my favorite things is spending time with our friends and family.

Someday I want to own a Christmas tree farm and a wedding venue. I’m a wanna-be Southern girl so we won’t always be here in the midwest. I love children and I dream about having our own family someday.

About Ryan

All my life I’ve seemed to gravitate towards moving pictures. I love the technology behind producing videos, and I love the end product; a well-made film that looks fantastic and captures a great memory or narrative. It just so happens that those two interests intersect with this business we’ve started.

I had my beginnings in high school nabbing my Mom’s 35mm film camera she used in her own high school photography class. The small town I grew up in didn’t offer any photography/videography classes so I learned through the wonders of the internet and hard earned experience. I shot a lot of rolls of film and made ridiculous videos with friends through those years.

As college started I bought my first camera and became hooked on photography/videography even more. I decided to major in Marketing, but picked up a Video Production minor to fill up any spare time. There I learned the ins and outs of composition, exposure, ASA, and other terms that may bore you. With all of this new found knowledge I became engrossed in the world of cinema. After school I then taught Mindy everything I knew and we’ve loved every minute of our lives since creating films.

Outside of capturing beautiful weddings and families on video, I work full time for an amazing company called WooThemes who creates great products for the WordPress platform. I also love to play drums, ride my bike, and enjoy life with my wife. We love spending time in the great outdoors and hanging out with friends and family.
