About us

Our goal at Machmer Media is to provide you with the most true to life images. We are a wife + husband team with a passion for media, art, movement, and community. Outside of our media business, we both have backgrounds as professional dancers and we pride ourselves in bringing knowledge of movement aesthetic and posing to the camera. As dancers, we help provide direction and coaching throughout the photo process in order to render the best possible image. As photographers, we have worked with leading experts in the dance photography industry, including Jonathan Givens of Pas de Deux Photo and Entertainment Photography Specialists. Most recently, Machmer Media's dance work has been featured on Good Morning America

Jacob holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Dance. He is also a RYT 200 certified yoga instructor. His choreographic works have been showcased in Irvine, Italy and Fort Collins and he has danced for companies such as Nashville Ballet, Festival Ballet Theatre and Hannah Kahn Dance Company. Tessa has an extensive background in dance, holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance, a barre fitness certification, and many years of experience as an instructor. Tessa's choreographic works have been showcased in San Francisco, Italy, Nashville, Denver, Tucson and Fort Collins. Over the past few years, Tessa has danced with Hannah Kahn Dance Company, IMPACT Dance and has engaged in freelance work with musicians from around the world. Apart from dance and photography, we love spending our time in the great outdoors of Colorado. If you see us around town, we are likely to be enjoying a local brewery or singing our lungs out in the car.

I can’t recommend Machmer Mo(ve)ment Photography enough! Tessa is a complete joy to work with! She makes you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, while also giving clear ideas and direction of how to get the best shot possible! She is a true artist and is always organized and timely with getting your edits back to you! I have so much fun every time shoot with her!
