Cody Hansen

Founder & Filmmaker 

Hey, I am Cody Hansen! I am the founder of EXIST Media Co. I am known to my friends and family as a coffee connoisseur, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, and spending time with loved ones! I will be graduating in May with my Bachelors in Supply Chain Management and Business Administration. I had a desire to start to EXIST Media Co. because I loved seeing stories and moments come to life! Being able to film and make others happy in the process is something I get really excited about. I got into video half a decade ago with the intention to film road trips with friends. You could say it started with the fear of forgetting valuable moments in my life, and wanting to find a way to remember them. Not long after, people asked me to film moments in their life as well, and we were in business! I love everything about the filmmaking process, and making memories last forever. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you, and help your important moments exist for as long as possible.

Victoria Pitzer

Photographer

Hi there! My name is Victoria Pitzer, and I am a photographer (and sometimes videographer) at Exist.  As a kid, my parents would laugh as I took our tiny, turquoise blue, digital camera outside to model and do my own photoshoot. My Facebook was filled with horribly edited photos that I now look back on and laugh. It's only fitting that as I grew, a camera grew with me. I am a photographer who loves the warm tones. Golden hour is my favorite time of each day. I believe the warm tones in an image represent the love and warmth that exist in relationships. I strive to make it feel as though the sun is shining on your face solely by looking at an image. It's my goal to make your pictures everything I would dream of for my own wedding, family, senior portraits, and more. As a true romantic, family-oriented, passionate individual, I look forward to working with you, and making your photography dreams come true.

Rob Buckley

Creative Director

What’s up? My name is Rob and I am a fellow creative representative and content creator here at Exist Media Co.. A few things I am overly passionate about are music, as well as making music, lifting and exercising, and making memories with those who are important to me. I tend to be a fairly loud and happy individual who always looks on the bright side of things, in which I apply this personality to the team and who we are as a brand! I’m always up for new creative challenges and producing content that people want, and Exist Media Co. gives me these rare opportunities that I will never regret. Exist is truly something special, and I am excited to work with you and create content that supports your needs.

Coordinator

Hey everyone I am Henry Dalluhn, a long-time adventurer and support specialist for both business and creative sides of Exist. I grew up with a passion for learning, I have traveled the world looking to experience other cultures and to understand how we are all one people. I also have a propensity for adrenaline, whether it be skydiving, snowboarding, cliff jumping, or climbing things most would stay clear of, I yearn to push limits.

Juliet Kratochwill

Exist Weddings

Coordinator

Hello!! I am Juliet Kratochwill - Weddings Coordinator for Exist. I have a bright, energetic, and collaborative spirit that fits well within this company! More so, I have a high admiration for connecting with others, fueling their story into something magical! I live by the mentality "joy is in the journey, not the destination". This means that I appreciate every step of the process that is life. And by capturing beautiful moments that have been coordinated (or uncoordinated), every picture has a correlating story. While pictures may be worth a thousand words, a couple thousand words can paint the most beautiful picture. My role is to help coordinate the success within your big day so that the moments captured can tell the story themselves.

Hugh Olson

Marketing Strategist 

Hi, my name is Hugh Olson. I am the Marketing Strategist at Exist Media Co. When I'm not working on all things Exist Media, I enjoy golfing, playing ultimate frisbee, and spending time with friends and family. As a marketing major at UW-Eau Claire, I find interest in finding the best ways to connect with clients through marketing strategies, and making every interaction and connection as smooth and natural as possible. 

I decided to join the Exist team because of their mission to be more than just a company, and their common drive to achieve any goal that they pursue. I am very optimistic about the future of this company, and we hope that you're as excited as we are. The potential for greatness at Exist Media is extremely high, and I truly believe the best is yet to come.

Emily Yaritz

Operations Manager

Hello, everyone! My name is Emily Yaritz and I will be running the social media part of Exist! Growing up, it has always been a dream of mine to build a business from the ground up. It is my honor to be able to be even a small part of Exist Media. Most people know me as a businesswoman for a knack practicality, but the people who know me best know I have a huge passion for the creative side of things. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends; especially my golden retriever, Molly. I am a spokesperson for Koloa Surf Co., as my family has traveled to Hawaii every year for as long as I can remember. As a person who likes to load their plate quite full and keep busy, I am also a triple major at UW - River Falls, and will be graduating December of 2021, and then heading to Denver for my graduate degree. I cannot wait to get to know all of you, and work with you. Thank you for trusting us to capture some of life's most important moments.
