About Cascades

Named for the waterfall southwest Virginia, Cascades Studios is a labor of love. It is an outgrowth of our various creative projects that allows us to share our love of making things.

We met at the Cascades Falls. Two weeks later, it was the site of our first date, and where he eventually proposed. We’re kind of attached to the name.
