Cooking Up Some Love…{Veronica + Justin, Cooking LA Engagement Session}

One of Veronica and Justin’s favorite places to be is in the kitchen together because they love to try out new recipes and foods.  So, when they wanted to do a cooking inspired engagement shoot we were ALL for it!  We love capturing couples doing what they love to do where they love to do it.  Their home was super cute and it was great getting to see their ‘everyday’.

Afterward, we headed out to downtown LA to where we got to run around and capture their love for the city.  They recently moved to Los Angeles from New York and they just love the hustle and bustle of downtown.  Being from the valley…we don’t see to much of the city but after their session it made us want to go back for more, off the clock.  The buildings and architecture made for the perfect background.

Thank you all so much for having us share in your wedding day!! We are SO excited for your guys and can’t wait to see you in just a few short months!!

A Fairytale Wedding to Remember {Rosanne + Chris, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

There is something about horse and carriage rides that reminds us of fairytales and brings us back to the days that we used to dream of our own weddings as little girls.  They are just romantic and whimsical and magical.  So, when we got to photograph Rosanne and Chris’ wedding over at Villa De Amore, it was all of those things.

Rosanne rode in on the horse and carriage to her ceremony.  The carriage was beautiful with the most ornate iron designs and she looked beautiful coming in to meet Chris up at the alter.

Thank you all so much for having us be a part of your wedding day!!

Pinch Us!! {WeddingWire’s Couples Choice Award}

Pinch Us!! There are moments in our careers that we just have to sit back and ask ourselves if all this is real. Moments that we wish we could record on our DVR’s and relive over and over again. We started our business almost a decade ago…with no experience, no schooling, and just a dream. And now, its grown beyond our wildest dreams- into something we never expected.

We are SUPER excited to announce that we received Wedding Wire’s 2014 Couples Choice Award!! We are so thankful to all of our couples that we have gotten to work with throughout the years. We LOVE our jobs more than anything and it really comes down to loving all the people that we meet.

A Good Mix…{Sandra + Richard, Little Tokyo Engagement Session}

Sandra and Richard wanted to have their engagement session in a place that was meaningful to them.  So, we headed down to Little Tokyo to just walk around some of their favorite spots to hang out. Not only is Little Tokyo rich with culture, it has some of the most AMAZING cafes and eateries.  Hanging out with them for the day was like walking through a storybook.  Each place that they showed us, had a story to go with it and we loved seeing them come to life as they shared a bit of themselves with us.  The best part about their session was that we got to just walk around and go wherever inspiration led.  There was no set schedule, or timeline, or specific place.  It was organic and natural and allowed us to just be creative and spontaneous.  It was such a good mix…

Thank you all so much for having us share in your wedding day!! We are SO excited for the two of you

There were LITERALLY Fireworks! {Courtney + Corey, Vintage Truck Styled Engagement Session}

When Courtney and Corey went camping with some friends over 4th of July weekend four years ago, they had no idea what was in store for them.  Neither one of them were looking for a relationship but found themselves immediately attracted to each other.  Their mutual friends had brought them together for the weekend but when they went home it was Corey who would reach out to one of Courtney’s friends and bring them together again for their very first date.  And they have been together ever since. 

Courtney and Corey, we are SO excited for your engagement session this year.  Thank you so much for having us share in your big day!!
