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!

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!

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 »

Ashlee + Mike’s Green Gables Garden Wedding

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

Be forewarned that these two are just way too cute together!  From the moment we started snapping away during their first look we knew we where in trouble!  Getting a first look in for photos is a huge bonus if it fits your wedding day style, needless to say takes a bit of stress off the later part of your wedding day.

Ashlee and Mike had a few spots they really wanted to get some photos and we saw some magical fields along the way to meet up with them.  You can tell from their pics, we really had a tough time choosing which ones to showcase so we sorta went a little nuts and showed tons!!

Once we arrived at Green Gables, the set up was so dreamy, it had a hint of Old English Tea Party, mixed in with some casual simplicity’s that made it all tie together!  We even got their doggy in some of their pics which was so fun!  Being dog people ourselves we enjoy those little furry guys in our photos!

Check out some or ok most of our favs from yet another amazing Green Gables wedding in gorgeous San Marcos, California!
