Two Thousand and Fifteen

As the 2015 chapter closes, I reflect on the moments. I’m so thankful for the trust that was given to us to capture these temporary pauses on very important days. A beginning.

It is a beautiful process to work with both stills and cinema. To relive those “thousand words,” or to watch your story unfold on screen has been a joy to witness. I happily welcome 2016, but will always remember our growth in these shared moments with our new friends and family.

The Prayer.

Erlinda & Donte gave us a couple of specific shot requests. This was one of them and we really appreciated the moment with the group. It seems serious, but by the end of the night we were all smiles and dancing like crazy. When I say “all,” I mean literally, even us vendors. We had too much fun with the bridal party and families!

Please inquire for a password to browse the videos on our blog and website as I am still sorting and updating our content. I can’t wait until everyone sees our new wedding films!

Marisa + Jaeson | 10.1.16

Things happen for a reason. Cliché, sorry. A November portrait session with wacky weather, tricky. Sinking in mud to get the angle, worth it. We’re still a ways from the big day, but I can’t wait to work with Marisa & Jaeson. They actually got a peak at us working a family member’s wedding, but were too shy to confirm if it was us =). Also, I saw an amazing video of their proposal and it involved a detailed plan with a custom, real-life pinterest board! Kudos, Jaeson. I hope some of our pics make the cut!

Maternity Portraits

As I continue to update the website, I am happy to be sharing some new content with everyone. Again, I appreciate your patience as I update the website.

I am fairly new to the maternity shoot, but I can already see how unique this is. Mother’s have a special glow and confidence about them that I can’t explain. The way they touch and look at their tummies. It is such a sacred gift and the gentleness is so peaceful. My friend reached out to me and I was thrilled to be able to capture this for them. I’ve always said that my future kids would have awesome slideshows if they wanted one. Maybe some day this picture will make it if “Kaleb” ever has one!

Engagement Season

During the holiday season I like to wind down and reflect on the rigorous summer of weddings and events. I also like to think about all of the couples who are secretly planning that special moment for their significant other. The proposal. It is crazy to think about everything captured in a 8 to 14 hour wedding day as opposed to a 1 hour portrait session with a newly engaged couple. Some may pose a challenge to capture a candid moment with direction while others naturally fall into it. Either way, I am so motivated of the possibilities in either situation. This was their moment.

Laura & Nate – SDE

We got the best of both worlds this past weekend. A bridal party of lawyers, surgeons and doctors who knew how to party. We were able to maintain professionalism for the most part. It was ridiculously easy to film the bunch with so much character and confidence on camera. Laura gave me a heads up that they were an energetic couple. I let myself be the judge of that and they did not fail! We hope you’ll enjoy these bits of the day that make shooting weddings a little more fun. Enjoy!

Gaozong + Andrew | 1.9.16

I met up with Gaozong & Andrew in Monterey, Ca to shoot their engagement portraits. I captured a lot of great moments with these two and I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a couple who fell into a pose so easily on command. Literally, never had to adjust them other than asking to look at the camera once in a while! I was immersed in how well they interacted with each other and how much they perfected the “almost kiss” without too much puckering up (#noduckface haha). We had a blast at the beach (saving those for later!) and to think it was just a place where Andrew used to eat his lunch. The evening came together perfectly and I hope I get to shoot there again some time.

Jessica & Patrick – SDE

We had the perfect day in San Francisco and had the pleasure of working with JEZA PHOTOGRAPHY. This was the first wedding where I had to stop and pause at all the surprises that Jessica & Patrick had in store for us. From their stylish gifts to each other, to a “big bang” reception, this was truly a night to remember for their families and friends. Not to mention, their SDE of course! Enjoy.
