About Us


We’re Allison & Matthew, the wife-husband team behind Tandem. We work out of our decidedly un-fancy, but extremely chill and wonderfully bright home studio in Los Feliz. We welcome you to come in, get comfy, and make our home yours for the duration of your shoot.

Allison does the shooting, wardrobe consulting, photo editing, and video editing. Matthew takes care of the less glamorous back-of-house stuff like quality control, storage, photo organization, accounting and email. He’ll also keep you hydrated while you’re here.

We have this crazy idea that headshots should be a relaxed, collaborative, and even fun experience free of egos, meanness, and high price tags.

Fun Fact: The name Tandem started when Allison originally founded this business as a web design and editing company (Tandem Web & Reels). The idea was that the client would work with her to create marketing materials that branded them exactly the way they wanted. When we introduced headshot photography in 2012 it quickly took over everything and required a lot more attention. So Matthew became an official partner and gave new meaning to the company name.
