  • 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!

Andrew & Rebecca: e-session

Friday afternoon I went to San Francisco to visit a number of people. First on the list were Andrew and Rebecca! One interesting thing to note about Andrew is that last summer he just happened to go to the same place in Malawi as I did, to work on the very same project. Similar to me he was also one of a few on the team who didn’t have a lot of construction experience. Awesome, I love the connection.

Anyway we have been trying to find a time to get together for a month or so now, so I’m glad this weekend worked out! It was a little cold but we got through it, and once “The Office” jokes started flowing between Andrew and Rebecca we started to have a lot of fun! You two are super cute, I’m excited to see all the smiles when you wedding gets here next summer! =).

Suzy: Bridesmaid

Last weekend while I was shooting Matt and Amy’s wedding, Suzy was a bridesmaid at one of her friends wedding’s in Atlanta. I was slightly upset I missed the chance to see her in her new dress. So I convinced her to put it back on and we went to this spot I had been wanting to check out under the 118 freeway.

Yes, this is what I do for fun in my free time.  Not everyone can have a  job that is so much fun you keep doing it on vacation, on the weekend, at home as well as with all your awesome clients! Love it! =)

T. A. Green - If there is one thing you can say about Susannah it’s desaturation. TA (Susannah’s Dad)

Matt & Amy: Wedding

Saturday morning was another beautiful morning in sunny Southern California. After a few weeks in Africa I was so ready to be back to shooting wedding photos. The change was great but I really do love shooting weddings! =). I started off the day taking a few photos of the girls getting ready, but when I called the guys to find out what they were up to they were out playing golf lol. So I headed to the church to scope things out a little bit and found this great little wooded area right across the street. I’m glad I went over there because some of my favorite photos of the day are from that spot! Enjoy the slideshow!

I’m not sure who’s Bible this is, but I found it sitting open on the table in Genesis. The perfect passage for a wedding. =)

One of my favorite photos of the day!

I think this is probably the last patch of green grass in Southern California. I did some photos at this same location a month ago and the whole place was covered in this gorgeous green grass. On Saturday it was all dead and withered except this little spot under a tree by the stream! I’m glad we found it, and glad we took the time to go over there. =)

After the ceremony we went outside to take a few photos, and I snapped this one really quick before I changed my Kalvin temp, but ended up liking the purple hue and decided not to color correct. =)
