About Us

Filmmakers. Storytellers. Photographers.
​Hi Y'all!! We are Tessa & Dustin Sturm... a happily married SOUTHERN couple living in Nashville! One of our passions is to capture the beauty of life through a lens, whether that is through cinematic video or photographs.​

We enjoy working together to make people smile and to capture the love of couples, families, and friends. Life is a gift in so many ways and it should be celebrated and documented. We want to give people something they will not only cherish forever, but will impact our world for the better... one story at a time.
Our background includes working in the TV, Film, and Commercial industry for over a decade, which led us to starting a small family business, Southern Pictures.We met in Los Angeles, CA while pursuing Hollywood dreams, which led us to where we are today.
We also DJ, teach line dancing and two-stepping through our other business, Stompin' Grounds (www.StompinGrounds.US). We host a lot of line dancing parties and we help couples learn to dance!
We have a 3-year-old boy named Wyatt Lockwood, who loves "helping" us work and being our test subject on camera.
