The month of love is drawing to a close so to end our #BetterTogether series for February, we are featuring one last couple that is very near and dear to us here at The Venue Report. Meet Jose Villa and Joel Serrato: boss couple, photographer extraordinaires, and very (very!) dear friends. This couple’s journey has led them to travel the globe together while photographing some of the most fabulously elite events of modern time. Their work has been featured in every major magazine you can think of and they can now add ‘book publishers’ to their already impressive resumes having written books on their photography skills. They are admired near and far by event photographers for their signature film photography making their simple but stunning style the gold standard.

How did we meet this dynamic duo? Let's just say this love affair started almost a decade ago when our founder Cortnie started working with Jose on several styling projects that eventually led to him photographing her and Donny’s wedding. (insert link to wedding). Since then, Cortnie and Donny have gotten to know this couple by traveling together to Bora Bora (insert link), Hawaii and Palm Springs. You really get to know a couple when you travel with them and let's just say, we would happily travel with them a million more times for the pleasure of their company and steadfast friendship (which we all know says a lot). All in all, Jose and Joel certainly prove that they are #BetterTogether.

Here at The Venue Report, the office culture tends to be different then most corporate enviroments. We have pink doors, disco balls in every corner, plants everywhere and leading the charge are founders, Cortnie and Donny Fausner. A married couple that started The Venue Report in their home. Throughout their journey of building this company from the ground up, the question, "How does your working relationship effect your personal relationship?", always seemed to get asked. Their response? "It doesn't. Plain and simple. We stay in our lanes and if we by any chance want to cross over we put our blinkers on. We love what we do and talk about work all the time. It's our other baby (Lola is what we like to call her offline) and doing what you love with the person you love is one of the greatest gifts." 

That response inspired our February series, Better Together. There are so many rad working relationships out there and we are so excited to share a few with you! This week's Better Together feature commences with long distance besties and Girl Bosses, Renata Stone (also goes by Nata) of Big Bear Photo Co. + Knottery and Rachel Lunghi of Siren Floral Co. + The Romantik Studio. Together they are the ultimate dynamic duo after hours and during. Having colaborated on multiple weddings, photo shoots and even vacation iteniarys, these two share how they better together.
