We are The StoryMakers, a husband and wife business. We specialize in creating photo and video content but are also both certified Professional Project Managers (PMP) and Life Coaches. We think every person and business has a unique story which we help to capture. Some of our bigger clients include T-Mobile, Microsoft and Mercedes Benz. Though we have a portfolio of big clients, we get our biggest joy out of working on more personal projects - with individuals, small businesses, couples and small groups
How are we different than other similar businesses? We focus on customizing the experience to the meet the needs of the customer and view our work with you as a partnership. Because of our background is heavily rooted in project management, we bring an element of business consulting to help with process improvements. We also frequently invest in the business we work with, sometimes financially or in other creative ways and value add ideas. You'd be surprised what we have don here on Thumbtack.
We are a small and agile company yet very scalable as we have a network of contractors to augment our projects, so no project is really out of reach from a talent point of view. If you want to work with us, just reach out with some samples via email, and we'll see where we go from there.
