Andy & Amii Kauth

Rad Wedding Photographers, Authors & Educators

Andy & Amii are rad wedding photographers (Sunshine & Reign Photography), based out of Arizona, USA. They’re authors and educators for SLR Lounge, married with cinco niños, and love the heck outta each other. And they absolutely love being wedding photographers. Absolutely love it!

They work their asses off to tell couples’ love stories in the most epic and creative ways and are known for shooting upwards of 15-7 hours on a wedding day. When they aren’t photographing weddings or writing about photographing weddings (SLR Lounge, Arizona Weddings Magazine, and a number of other websites and blogs like Design Aglow and Resource Weddings), you’ll find them off on a seriously legit adventure with their little ones, lifting weights in their garage, refining their archery skills, or surfing every chance they get. And on the rare chance they escape off on a “date night”? They’ll find a wedding to crash (true fact).
