Welcome to Studio Twelve:52
Our company consists of: 2 Head Photographers - Kasey & Christina, 6 Second Shooters - Tyler, Chris, Mike, Kacey, Nicole & Anna. We also have 5 honorary puppy assistants in the form of professional foot warmers napping under our desks while we edit away as a pet friendly (always bring your puppy to work day) team. We are very much a close-knit family. We are also a real, down to earth bunch. Which is why we decided to show you this more candid look at who we are here. We LOVE what we do, and most importantly, we love the amazing people (and sometimes even pets) we meet along the way. You're the reason we are able to do what we love.
When owner / head photographer Kasey was in high school she decided to officially start her own photography business - then called, "Kasey Jean Photography". She originally figured it would remain a side business while she pursued a medical career. However, this side business very quickly became a full-time gig. While studying in Duluth, after her second year in college, she found herself traveling way more than any other student - Twin Cities almost every other day for photo sessions, weekend trips to photograph bands on tour for various publications, and even in Las Vegas to photograph jiu-jitsu tournaments and MMA events. Something had to give. One day during a organic chemistry exam it just hit her out of nowhere - "I AM A PHOTOGRAPHER". She walked out mid-test, transferred schools and finished a degree in Marketing Communications instead. The company was still growing and growing. Weddings started to become her specialty. It
was very clear... She would need some backup. After years of doing everything on her own, she met Tyler - who would eventually become her husband. Very early on in their relationship he helped her continue to grow. It was only a matter of months later Kasey reconnected fully with childhood friend, Christina, who also had been working full-time doing photography at a studio. They caught up over coffee - began to photograph sessions and weddings together more and more. Kasey asked Christina to officially become her co-head photographer. It was around this same time Kasey and Tyler got married, and he too decided to leave his profession to join in on this growing business full-time. Now a team of three, 3 years later - 8 years in business total - 300+ weddings later - Kasey Jean Photography needed a new name. Something that would hint at its origins but unite the team as one. And so, Studio Twelve:52 was born.
