Joey + Kathy’s Magical Estate Wedding at Twin Oaks

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

You can clearly see from the images of their big day that Joey and Kathy really enjoyed themselves at their wedding!  They where both all smiles and enjoyed their moments with their closest friends and family.

The decor and details had little touches of a gatsby 20’s feel and it fit them so well!  Joey and Kathy have such a unique spark and brightness about them and it all came together perfectly!

Check out some of our fav’s from Joey and Kathy’s Twin Oaks wedding!

Beverly + Jason’s Ice Skating Engagement Session

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

We just love when the engagement sessions we get to shoot that reflect the couple so well!  Jason really wanted to have a bit of his side reflected in their pics by adding his hockey element.  Plus getting to shoot on the ice with out anyone else in our way was quite exciting!

After our Ice Session we headed to the park and Beverly and Jason set up a sweet cupcake picnic while we snapped away.  Beverly picked such sweet details and aren’t the cupcakes the cutest 😉

Check out all of our fav’s from their engagement session.

Amy totally killed it with all her details, so sweet, so vibrant and totally fit perfect into the amazing setting that Green Gables already provides!  We couldn’t get enough of her adorable table decor and all the finishing touches that really pulled it all together.

Amy and Sean we had a blast working with you two and hopefully we’ll get to see your faces again when the littlest Jasperson arrives one day!  Haha no pressure 🙂

Jenna + Justin – Temecula Wedding at Bel Vino Winery

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

I think I forgot how much fun these two where from their engagement session!  Filled with laughs and truly great great personalities.  I believe Jenna and Justin enjoyed every second of their wedding day.  Completely laid back, up for any amount of walking I asked for and some of the most warmest and genuine smiles you can ask for.

Jenna I love your laugh, and to date you have to be the bride that I’ve asked to laugh towards camera the most on record.  You two are amazing and I’m sad your wedding day is over.  Don’t forget us when baby time comes around, I wanna photograph that little munchkin 🙂

Athena + Flaviu – Seaside Romance in Aptos California

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Santa Cruz has to be the best setting for a summer time wedding, warm sunshine, cool breezes and amazing Ocean views you just can’t beat!  The Seascape Beach Resort was the ultimate location for a gorgeous ceremony and quick and easy access to a multitude of shooting locations!  We where thrilled with the variety of photos we where able to capture for these two!

Athena and Flaviu had some pretty magical moments throughout their entire day and all the sweet details where all in the perfect place!  Don’t breeze past the magical dolphin pics, they’re pretty fantastic! Yes I said dolphins, they even made an appearance 🙂

We’ve been so excited to share our favorites from their Santa Cruz wedding day, so without further delay enjoy!

Emily and Tyler – Smokin HOT engagement session

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog. No Comments

We can’t forget how warm it was that day so naturally it seemed like a good idea to take these two out and splash around some water a bit!  These two where troopers!  Up for any and everything we suggested 🙂

Emily and Tyler are from Kentucky and where headed out to Havasu for a little vacay so what better time to get some engagement shots in!  Check out some of our favorites from their Lake Havasu engagement session.

Erin + Naif – Scottsdale Wedding at Troon North

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

From the moment we Skype’d with Erin and Naif we knew we just had to photograph their wedding day!  It was more than just their perfect smiles (sorry I had to, they’re dentists) it was the joy and happiness in their voices and they way they spoke about each other!

We can always tell when the fit is right and we where so glad they chose us!  Erin and Naif got married on a freakishly amazing May day when it’s typically quite warm at the breath taking Troon North Country Club in Scottsdale Arizona.  I guess you could say the stars all aligned and cool down the vivd desert just for their celebration!

Capturing tons of moments and gorgeous details and lets not leave out some pretty stunning bridal portraits you could say Jeff and I felt fulfilled and couldn’t wait to race home and edit these beauty’s!  Check out Erin and Naif’s UBER gorgeous wedding day and some ( and I mean some) of our favorites!!

Kelly + Jesse – Saguaro and the Clayton in Scottsdale

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Kelly and Jesse found us on pinterest which is ironic, because as I put together these collages for our blog I can already see the re-pinning notifications coming in!

Kelly’s preparation photos are some of my all time favorite, you can see the artistry taking place between her and her uber talented make up artist!  Jesse and Kelly also have this amazingly gigantic Great Dane named Toppie who was sweet enough to pose for our camera’s.

The light at the Clayton for ceremony was gorgeous, the details where perfectly picked and placed and Kelly the fact that you actually wanted to get pictures of you and Jesse enjoying you cocktail hour still makes me smile 🙂

These two truly enjoyed their day, set a mellow pace and took it all in!  Stay tuned for their wedding film coming soon!  I can’t wait to get to relive their day….

Jen + Dan Bel Vino Winery Temecula California

Posted on August 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Every time we get the opportunity to shoot a friends wedding it’s always a honor.  I’ve personally known Jen for almost a decade as she and my little sister are BFF’s!  Jen’s always been so fun to be around and once we met Dan on their engagement shoot we knew we where going to get amazing photos with these two!

Bel Vino is a gorgeous winery in the Temecula hillside, with gorgeous views and Jen’s amazing details this wedding was a dream come true.  The day had a very slow and relaxed feeling to it, which made capturing all the little moments so easy.  We had our full crew with us, and typically it feels a bit hectic as we are all trying to capture each and every detail.

I think the flow of everything that Jen and Dan planned out made it all work so well!  Which is so smart, we tell brides and grooms all the time, take it all in.  Enjoy your day, it’ goes so fast.  From the images we have and the video thats almost complete you can tell they had a blast and really lived it up!

Thank you Jen and Dan for choosing our team, we … Read More »
