Posted on September 23rd, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

You’re going to see a lot of these two as we have one very exciting engagement video/save the date video coming up here in the next week to debut! Not to mention the amazing Authentic Mexican/Mission Wedding we are covering next May. As a photographer you can’t help but fall in love with all the couples you shoot and getting the opportunity to get to know them and their story. Pascale and Maurice fell in love in Lebanon their home, where Maurice played professional basketball. Pascale is an up and coming Event Coordinator and let me tell you, with her ideas and what she’s planning for her own wedding, this girl is going places! Her creativity is threw the roof!

As far as filming and photographing these two….we couldn’t have asked for easier subjects! Every detail was covered on the day of shooting, they even prepared their own treatment and script idea for their video. We are so excited to share the video once it’s done, so stay tuned. While the cameras where rolling Jeff and I took turns snapping some adorable shots of these two behind the scenes.


Ashley and Joe – Scottsdale Engagement Session

Posted on June 5th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

Everyone Meet Ashley and Joe!  These two lovebirds have known each other since the toddler years!  Yep thats right Joe says he remembers seeing Ashely for the first time when she was three years old.  The two grew up in the same circles you could say, as both of their fathers played in the big leagues for the Minnesota Twins.  How sweet is that?  Currently residing in the Scottsdale area Ashely told us all about her favorite hiking spot where Joe decided to propose to her.  We where lucky enough to head up to the trails to grab some incredibly gorgeous scenic shots of these two in the hot Arizona sun!

Who would have thought that some desert trails could captivate such beauty!  Ashley and Joe are getting married later this year in December and we are so looking forward to their nuptuals.  Not only are these two totally easy on the eyes and a blast to shoot, they also happen to be really sweet people.  I mean they with stood many many photos in some pretty hot temps and they just kept smiling and looking fabulous!

Lindsey and Nate – Backyard Wedding Fort Mohave Arizona

Posted on November 14th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

From the moment we photographed Lindsey and Nate in Oatman Arizona a few months back we couldn’t wait for the opportunity to shoot their big day!  Lindsey has this ridiculously gorgeous smile that spans ear to ear so you literally can’t take a bad photograph of her.  I’ve never seen a bride not take her eyes off her groom an entire ceremony until meeting Lindsey, there is so much love and happiness when these two are together that it is really tremendous to see!  I had the opportunity of getting to do a reveal and a little early morning shooting of the two of them and Nate was so nervous about seeing his gorgeous bride it had to be the sweetest thing I’d ever seen.

How could I forget all the details…….

Lindsey had been working on every single detail of her wedding for I believe “years”.  I’ve never seen so many adorable hand picked, home-made and hand-made gems in one place before.  We all had so much fun just shooting the details even before there where people there!  The setting was beautiful, simple, elegant and sincere.  Set in a family member of Nate’s home, where the guests where encouraged to roam around … Read More »

Friedia and Sunny – Engagement and Post Wedding Session Hollywood California

Posted on July 5th, by admin in blog, post wedding session, weddings. No Comments

This past weekend we had the extreme honor of shooting two best friends of ours in a post wedding/engagement session.  See we where booked for the weekend of their wedding 🙁  so we figured hey lets get em all dressed up and take some killer photos!  Starting at the Griffith Observatory in Hollywood we did our little mock engagement session.  For those of you who have never been, you are missing some truly unforgettable views!  Who would have thought there where so many places and secluded corners to get fantastic imagery.

We finished up our shoot at The Grove Manor, which is a famed mansion in the Holmby Hills area used quite frequently in tons of Hollywood films and television shows.  Right up the road from The Playboy Mansion we caught some great shots of Sunny and Friedia in their Hollywood Romantic Glamour Post Wedding Session attire!  Needles to say these two are just too easy to photograph 🙂
