As I Wood




Who We Are

We are Alisa and Jacob Rueter. We got our start in the photography world as hobbyists- we have each been shooting and learning for about 10 years.

By day, Jacob is an engineer in the world of 3D printing, and Alisa is a designer and marketing professional in the retail and apparel industry. This gives us a unique perspective on the world of product based businesses that we bring to all of our work.

“Essentially what photography is
is life lit up.”
— Sam Abell


We offer creative product photography, lifestyle brand imagery, head shot portraiture, and specialized personal branding sessions for creative professionals. Our passion in travel means you can take us, and your product, on an adventure. 

We understand that small businesses need to be nimble, and an investment in your brand imagery needs to go the distance. That is why we also offer full service packages that include planning and art direction, ensuring that your visual content will speak to your customer, and integrate beautifully on all of your platforms.
