We couldn’t wait to meet up with Joey and Kathy since their two location choices sounded so unique and amazing!  Starting out at this adorable little bar in Costa Mesa Jeff and I where so inspired and the creative juices where flowing!

Jeff + Emma – Palos Verdes Estates Engagement Session

Posted on March 28th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

This is part one of a pretty amazing span of photos/sessions you will see these two in.  I’m not going to reveal part two so you’ll just have to wait and see for yourself.

Both Jeff and I have grown so fond of getting to know these two that it really seemed like getting together with old friends when we met up finally in person to do their engagement session.  Ever since we first chatted on the phone with Emma and Jeff it was an instant click.

These two are passionate about photography and thats the best type of couple for people who really like taking pictures of their awesome couples!  Even though this is just the start of some cool imagery to come here is our favs from Jeff and Emma’s engagement session in Palos Verde Estates.

Sarah + David’s Whimsical Windmill Winery Wedding

Posted on March 26th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Sarah had expressed a week out from her wedding that she was worried it was going to rain.  After lots of hoping and wishing….. it still rained .  She was of course as any bride would be completely stressed out about this taking place on her wedding day.  We on the other hand weren’t worried at all!

Actually the idea of the challenge and creativity thoughts that came rushing to our head had us so excited, so know matter what the outcome we where ready to rock it!  The day ended up being absolutely perfect.  The wind kicked up and gave Sarah quite a challenge as she approached David during the first look.  Wind has a strange way of either totally running a shot or adding such an amazingly ridiculous flair that can really make a photo killer.

Well as you could see by our favorite images below in this post we couldn’t be more happier with how the wind behaved!  Here are our favorites from the Windmill Winery wedding shot spring wedding season 2014.

Brooke + Michael’s Totally Awesome Engagement Session

Posted on March 18th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

Ok well if my title didn’t explain it enough, you’ll just have to scroll down and then it will all make sense 🙂

Brooke and Michael called us up after their story book engagement in Sedona and luckily they found us through their venue!  Immediately we knew we just had to meet these two and hopefully get a chance to get to know them as people and shoot killer photos for them!  Well first opportunity in at their engagement session Jeff and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  Right off the bat we felt like a group of old friends which is the greatest feeling ever as photographers.  It really allows us to feel free in our creativity.

Michael I recall announces first off that he is horrible at taking pictures, lol he obviously has no idea what he’s talking about.  And Brooke rolls in with all this adorable wardrobe for the two of them and oh let’s not forget the ridiculous simple little car (yea no big deal) she built as a prop.

I think it’s safe to say again we seriously have the coolest couples in our calendar of weddings that any photography team could ever ask for!  Can’t wait to capture … Read More »


Paul + Hayley – Wedding at The Boulders Carefree Arizona

Posted on March 15th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Having never had the opportunity to shoot at the Boulders yet we where pretty excited to capture up all the amazing views and gorgeous landscape.  In true Janke form we drug these two all over the property to catch just the right light and we did our best to make sure we miss any back drop!

Good thing for Paul and Hayley that they where well seasoned with our antics and came prepared for our creativity!  There where so many breath taking colors and gorgeous settings that I literally created new presets inspired by this setting.  One of which I named “Magical Desert”  hee hee!

Although it took a bit to comb through all the portraits of these two that where just fantastic we narrowed it down.  Please take a moment to browse through our favs from Paul and Hayley’s gorgeous wedding day at The Boulders in Carefree, AZ.
