Why not elope along the one stretch of California coastline where no major roads were built to reach? At the justly called Lost Coast, our families joined to celebrate Kim (Phillip's little sis) and Mike's simple and breathtaking commitment ceremony along the cliffside.

Festival Inspired Wedding || Pioneertown

When Ilma contacted us to shoot her "less weddingish" wedding at Rimrock Ranch we had no idea what would actually be in store for us, as this is something we hear quite often. They started a couple hours late because the bride wanted to hug each friend as they arrived rather than sit and get her hair and makeup done. All the children were allowed to wear costumes. The officiant wore a cape with a ...

Moniker Warehouse Wedding || San Diego

We originally met Kelly, another fabulous photographer in San Diego, when she reached out to take our photos. We laughed our way through the stickiest photo shoot ever (it was a very humid September in San Diego). Little did we know we'd be shooting her first look in in the same cactus garden just a couple years later! Shooting a wedding for a fellow photographer is simply the best situation. T ...

Intimate weddings can bring so much freedom! Because Josh and Jacqueline chose to keep there guest list small they were able to use a unique space at the charming Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs that isn't accessible for most weddings.

2016 Recap

I honestly got a little emotional curating this post. As an artist working for others I'm constantly flooded with fears. Fear that I'm not pushing myself enough creatively, fear that I might miss something,and fear that my work just doesn't measure up to the standards I've set. But I had a thought today. If our work can attract so many beautiful souls and if it is enough to earn their trust in ord ...

First Look Among the Redwoods

Romantic first looks when getting married in the Redwoods are a must. Also, when the world blesses you with a little bit of weather, find a way to roll with it and allow nature to become a memorable and mystical aspect to your big day.

Family photojournalism | Documentary family photography

Family photojournalism is something I've fallen in love with recently. I've never been a fan of mini-sessions. It takes time to capture a child's personality. It takes time to capture those fleeting interactions between a mother and her son. It takes time to build trust with another person as their photographer. Recently I've begun offering "day in the life" sessions as a way to capture those deli ...
