We are Roger + Karin, a husband and wife photography team based in the Midwest

...but with a tendency to roam ;)  

We often amaze people with our ability to work so well with one another.  We balance one another out with relative ease and effortlessly function as a team whether we are working together at a wedding or making breakfast. :)

We are relatable and Down-to-Earth, and have a deep connection with our couples.  For us, the key to great photos is a great rapport that goes completely beyond a client/vendor relationship.  In our experience, trust isn't built through Yelp reviews or professionally crafted emails.  It's through building a genuine relationship where we share a common goal of capturing your love in a comfortable, organic way.

We love doing life together.  We have a passion for exploring and experiences that enrich our souls.  Honest connections and cultivating kindness are greatly important to us, and what makes having a business that combines our talents with the ability to connect with others so fulfilling.  

TenSixteen Photography is a combination of us - our dreams, our love, our style and our passion - and because our business is based on a union (not only yours, but ours) we named it after our own wedding date: 10/16

Karin and Roger are an absolute delight to work with! they are so down to earth, sweet, and fun!  They take care of every little thing and are so organized which made out day run smoothly.  I wouldn’t have been nearly as relaxed as I was if it weren’t for Karin (she’s incredible)
They captured every moment so beautifully and I am so glad to have those special moments to look back on.  Tensixteen is the best around - not just because the photos they take, but because of the people and couple that they are.


From the first contact over email, I could tell that Karin and Roger were our people. When we had our engagement session, it was clear that these two were the perfect duo - spunky and fun yet poised and professional. Karin and Roger not only captured the most extraordinary images for us, they became part of our family. They cared just as much as we did about the details of our wedding.  After working with them, it was clear these are two individuals who are more than photographers, they truly care about their clients and will go above and beyond to make sure every detail is immaculate. 


Working with TenSixteen was the easiest part of the whole wedding. They helped take the wheel during our big day when we needed it most. I was skeptical of professional photography because we don't like the "posed" looks and we wanted our pictures to look natural; we wanted "in the moment" photos. We couldn't have been happier with Karin and Roger and our photos are still talked about today. They become part of your family quickly and you'll fight the urge to have another ceremony just to have them there again.


Brady and I had a very small wedding, only family and close friends were there. After Karin and Roger shared the photos online, I can't tell you how many people told me that although they weren't present at the ceremony, they could feel the emotion of the day and felt like they were right there. The photographer was the most important decision to me when we were planning our day, and Ten Sixteen went above and beyond everything we wanted. Choosing them to preserve our wedding was the best choice we made, second only to choosing each other.


We loved working with Karin and Roger! They were our favorite wedding vendors. They were professional and personable, making us feel totally at home in front of the camera (which does not come naturally to us) while also working hard to capture all the little details of our wedding day. We have their photos hanging in our home now and we LOVE the way they turned out.  We would recommend Karin and Roger to anyone and everyone!


Put your worries aside and just enjoy your beautiful day. You can feel most comfortable and at ease with Roger and Karin capturing your big day, they don't miss a thing and they know what's important. Throughout the planning process they are very involved and give their helpful advice, which is much appreciated. By the time my wedding day arrived I had no doubt they would capture one of the best days of my life perfectly. 


Roger and Karin are an absolute joy to work with. From the first time we met them for our engagement session, they made us feel so comfortable and relaxed as we enjoyed laughs throughout the entire session. It felt like we had been lifelong friends. Their creativity and professionalism are like no other, not to mention their love for each other radiates, which is truly inspiring!  Roger and Karin went above and beyond to ensure that our day was absolutely perfect and we are forever thankful for them!   


Karin and Roger were a dream to work with from the day we first contacted them!  They are organized, responsive, and work with you to understand how best to adapt their shooting style to your vision.  On our big day they gave the perfect amount of direction and suggestions while still capturing who we are as a couple and snatching candids.  We enjoyed that they are both lead photographers that work in tandem instead of a lead and assistant.  They were a wonderful choice and we wouldn't go with anyone else!
