  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to the blog! If the banner doesn't make it obvious enough I'll just spill the beans and let you know that we are a full time husband and wife wedding photography team. We love life, God, weddings, and if you slide over our names to the left you'll note a few other things we love.

    We are based out of Los Angeles, and when I say that, I mean our studio is right in the smack dab center of downtown. However, if you start browsing through the blog history you will soon note that we shoot weddings all over the country and world. We put a lot into making our images so I hope you enjoy checking some of them out!

    If you're up for having a great time at your wedding, and our photos have the look you are going for, then feel free to shoot us a note and we would love to chat some more!

Christian & Lashantae: Wedding

There were two things which really stuck out to me about Christian and Lashantae’s wedding. The first was that they had a genuine desire to honor God in everything they did. All the way from the pre-martial counseling, to the ceremony, down to the significance of the the eight stones Christian put in Lashantae’s ring.

The second thing I noticed was they really loved their guests, and it was extremely important to them that everyone they cared about was part of their day. In the end I think there were nearly 500 people who came to share Christian and Lashantae’s commitment to each other.

Thank you for letting me be a part of the first day of your new union together with Christ Jesus! =)

proofs

I think I might actually sell my Mark III’s and just use my iPhone to shoot in the future. =)

This wasn’t my idea… but I like it. ;)

The first look. Always a classic! =)

This is actually their first kiss ever! Isn’t that sweet! =)

Keith & Chelsea: Wedding

I can’t believe Keith and Chelsea’s wedding was already almost a month ago! Time flies when you get engaged and realize that shooting weddings every weekend as well as planning your own can get pretty busy. The up side is that I have been to so many GREAT weddings lately it makes me even more excited for my own. Keith and Chelsea, your wedding was gorgeous! When we first arrived at the mansion where the ceremony was held, all we could say was “wow this place is fabulous”. Good choice! I also remember loving the little acoustic pieces on the guitar as you came up and then down the aisle;  you’re going to have to remind me what song it was so that we can steal your idea! Over all I need to say that I really enjoyed the whole day, and Suzy especially enjoyed the dancing!

On a side note, I had another wedding the next day in LA, so we ended up driving all night and got back to LA at 6:30 am. Lucky me, I got to sleep while poor Suzy drove all night. Isn’t she great! At least she got to sleep all day Saturday while I was shooting. ;)

Life in Flux & a Map

A friend of mine sent me a note on my last blog concerning the couch I saw. He said “Our first couch was a curb present. That and dumpster diving helped us through our first year of marriage!!”. Right now I’m 28 days from getting married. Years ago I would have imagined myself having it all figured out. In my mind I probably imagined knowing where we would live, already owning a house, and settling down into a nice quite life. But life is much more exciting than that. In reality I think my world is going to change a lot. It’s no longer just my preferences, my money, and my ideas which will factor in. I’m also considering Suzy’s preferences, needs and desires. The first year of marriage just might include some metaphorical dumpster diving as we plunge into a new exciting world with each other.

I think for this time in our life a little flux could just be a good thing. Maybe it’s not a good idea to buy a house and commit ourselves to something before we know what we want or even know what it’s like to live together. Maybe it’s a better idea to rent something in different areas and see what we like. Maybe things will be more up in the air, maybe we will be transients. But maybe it will be a really good thing to pull us together and help us decide where we want to be, what we want to do, and how all that will work together!

All said I think we have decided where we will want to live in general. Now we just need to find something we like in that area to “try out” for the next 6 months to a year. Check the map and if you have some great suggestions let us know! =).

On another note I’m almost finished with Keith and Chelsea’s wedding photos! I’m super excited to post them!
