Co-Founders Jess and Race grew up documenting life's raw moments. They made home videos and shot film, so naturally they have an affinity for all things grainy and priceless. When Jess and Race met, they fell in love and merged their wedding photography and videography skills to shape OUTLIVE CREATIVE. Outlive is the culmination of a deep passion for art, the outdoors, music, and appreciation for clean and timeless design and aesthetic.
JESSI : CO-FOUNDER / PHOTOGRAPHER
"I fell in love with photography 22 years ago and am especially drawn to medium format photography in which I love to implement into my wedding and portrait work. I was born in Denver, Co was raised in the San Francisco East Bay and currently reside in Portland, Oregon. My passion centers on creating photographs showcasing love, life, experiences and real moments. I love music, I love to hike, explore, snowboard, travel and spend time with my 6 year old daughter, Zoey Rae and my fur baby, Shasta. I can never have enough plants, I am in love with interior decorating, and I appreciate clean and minimalistic design and style." -JESSI KOSKI
RACE : CO-FOUNDER /FILMMAKER
"I grew up in a small and humble town in Oregon called, Scio. I discovered my interest for making videos in sixth grade when I started skateboarding. Before I earned my Video Production degree, I spent three years working and snowboarding on Mount Hood. During my youth and young adult years, I enjoyed life playing professional paintball, drumming in a band, skateboarding, and traveling. As my craft matured, I found myself filming all of these subjects of interest, eventually leading me to find my love for cinematography. Aside from filming, I like to explore mountains, ride powder, travel, shoot photos, and spend time with Jess, Zoey, and my Mini Aussie, Shasta." - RACE JONES
