Hi and Howdy. We are Alice and Ben, a husband/wife collaborative design team based out of Oklahoma City, OK. Although living in Sooner territory, we received our educations in architectural design from Kansas State University and Texas A&M University, respectively. It was through school and our life-changing study abroad trip to Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy that we eventually met and fell in love. #magical, anyone? And in addition to finding each other, we discovered our passions for design and photography from our time spent in Europe. Since our wedding in 2012, we have continued to pursue these passions through the creation of Decker8 Creative Studios and in the meantime adopted our Pitbull mix, Isabelle. She is spunky, high-maintenance, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Alice has used her background in interior architecture and skill for styling to hone an eye for details and composition. Although a true Missourian at heart, she loves to travel and seeks adventure. She has an obnoxious laugh, a deep obsession for cereal, and believes there a few things in life more exciting than a neighborhood-wide garage sale. She loves lists, roller coasters, trash TV, the color Chartreuse, and anything and everything Nate Berkus. 

Ben, an even truer Texan, is a gentle giant with a sense of humor drier than the modestly-priced Merlot he drinks on occasion. While he is a graphic designer by day, you will likely find him fulfilling his true calling: supporting his talented wife through slightly-less beautiful photography skills and incredibly excellent reflector holding skills. While he is an over-zealous Crossfit and nutrition enthusiast, don't let him fool you; he is a true nerd at heart who keeps a reading list and spends his free time arguing theology with his friends and writing witty about sections for his next web design. 

But as much as we’d like you to know about us, we ultimately hope you’ll see we are about Him. So let’s get together and share pretty things, dog stories, and happily ever afters.
