Vanessa + Jason | Clarke Estate, Santa Fe Springs, CA

Every wedding that we photograph has a certain sentiment attached to it. The Arias wedding holds a special place in our hearts. I’ve known Jason since he was just a kid, in fact I used to babysit him and his siblings during high school. Seeing Jason grow up to become a successful business owner and happily married man is one of those things you just can’t describe in words. This was a day filled with so many great friends, family, and memories which they will cherish forever.

Liesl + Ben Wedding | Hyatt, Lake Tahoe

liesl-and-ben-039

Wow, we’ve been busy, and this post is WAY overdue (from July 2013). I’ve known Liesl since we were kids, as our moms are really good friends. It was such a special moment watching Liesl get married in such an extraordinary location. Lake Tahoe is pretty darn magical and so was this summer day. We were lucky enough to steal Liesl and Ben away from the wedding party the day before and shoot at a few secret spots around the lake. That evening our team had a few “beverages” on the beach, shooting time lapse footage of the lake under the stars. Again, magical!

My favorite moment of the weekend was when Liesl surprised her stepfather with a father daughter dance. There wasn’t a dry eye on the lake, myself included!

You can watch the video we shot after the gallery, and here is a link to their engagement photos Liesl + Ben did with us.

Kelly + Anthony | Lido Isle Yacht Club | Newport Beach Wedding

Congrats to these two! By far our favorite part of their wedding was all the hard work and personal touch that went into all their decorations; that and their dog waiting to greet them outside the alter! Check out Kelly talking about her crafty side at the end. So much love and hard work went into this wedding and we were glad to be a part of it!

Ben + Mallory – A Great Plains Wedding!

BM3

We recently had the pleasure of shooting our great friends Ben and Mallory Rohall! The location was breathtaking, set amongst the farm lands of Michigan. The private home had everything- a golf course, a barn, and a train about a quarter mile away-truly a photographers dream. Thank you Ben and Mallory for allowing us to capture your amazing wedding. It was our privilege to share the moment with you!

Negar and David | Balboa Park

So this was the first time we’ve had one of our couples illegally drinking wine in a public park…all in the name of great pics of course! Gotta love a couple that comes prepared :-) Honestly, it was really great hanging out with Negar and David. It’s couples like them that set the standard on how to love and compliment one another. Such cool people, good times, great pics, great weather, and mojitos and tacos afterwards. Yet another tough day at the office! Here’s a few of our fav’s, check out the full gallery here!

 

Danielle and Steve – Engagement Soiree, Country Club Style

IMG_3678

Confession: Although this was a great party, my eyes kept drifting over to the golf course just off the balcony, which had two downhill holes in desperate need of getting played by me. If I would have had my clubs in the car, there may have been a missing photographer for about 20 minutes. Back on track, Danielle and Steve win this years award for best looking, best dressed couple. Super classy group of friends and family, all of whom were incredibly nice and welcoming. We ended up staying afterwards just to have drinks and hang out with all the cool people we met! Looking forward to the official engagement shoot, which are sure to be front page material. To Danielle and Steve, thanks for having us, you guys rock!
