About Us

We are Allison and Matthew, the wife-husband team behind Tandem Photo & Reel. Tandem has been a thing since 2011. It started as a web design, editing, and photography company, but the photography side took over very quickly (we still love doing reels though!). Allison does the shooting and the video/photo editing while Matthew spirits away all those blinky faces you'll definitely make during your session and makes sure you stay hydrated.


We know, we're basically the dentists of the acting world: you need new headshots, but you really, really, really don't want to. We focus on making the process easy, comfortable, and even fun, so you're left with shots that look and feel like you.

What's with the name?

The idea behind the name is that we work together to get you the marketing materials you need to best present yourself. It started out with web design and reels, but we take the same approach to photography. We're here to guide you, direct you, and give our honest opinions, but we're not a my-way-or-the-highway operation. 





Some Nice Stuff People Have Said Lately...

"I am going out so much more than ever before. I’m currently on avail and have another audition tomorrow. Can’t thank you guys enough. Especially for being so reasonable about the price - moving so fast - and helping me look like myself while still looking “commercial.” Keep doing what you’re doing."

"I seriously can't thank you enough, this is amazing and I'm beyond grateful...what I wanted from the onset was someone with a great eye to do what I can't, which is pick and choose the elements that would mesh well together and that's exactly what you did here! I really appreciate you looking past the time codes and bringing in bites that I didn't mark off!"
