  • 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!

Photo 108 #2 Post Workshop

The second workshop I did was very similar content to the first, except I added a little section on studio lighting as well. Over all we covered a huge amount of material and I’m impressed how well everyone kept up! This time my friend Erica helped out for the practice portrion. She has this awesome sense of eclectic fashion which fits her personality perfectly! I picked a few images  I created while I was demonostrating! If you’re interested in attending a similar workshop sometime this summer, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page and I’ll shoot you an email when I decide on some dates.

Kathryn: Senior

On Friday I met Katie and her mom at a Starbucks up in Santa Clarita. The plan was to head to this great field out in Placerita Canyon, with lots of tall grass, and flowers and some other cool stuff. As we drove down the road it started pouring rain so hard the windshield wipers could hardly keep up. And then all of a sudden we came out of the cloud just as we got to the spot where we were going. However, by the time we got out and started creating some images the downpour hit us, and worse it started hailing like crazy lol. I suggested since we were already drenched we might as well do some in the rain. So we did, and I really like some of the results.

Telescopes and God

Last night I went up to Griffith observatory with some friends after the evening service at church. I’ve been up the observatory dozens of times. I enjoy the view of the city, I enjoy hiking through the woods, I love the architecture, and I always have fun hanging out with friends when we go up there. Last night we couldn’t find two of the people in our group, and eventually discovered them waiting in a line to look through a telescope to see Venus. All of a sudden it struck me that in all the times I have gone to the observatory I have never actually looked through a telescope. The whole point of the buildings, the location and everything else at the facility are so people can look up into the sky and see a broader and more realistic view of the universe.

As I got to thinking about it I realized that sometimes we can treat the Bible as I did the observatory. We can enjoy the literature, we can enjoy the fellowship that comes with going to church and gong to Bible Studies. We can also apply it to our lives and use it for a little better perspective of our world. Kind of like I enjoy looking over LA from the observatory. These things are all great, but the point of the Bible is to help us understand God better. God gave us the Bible so we can know Him and understand who He is and what his design for us is. Sometimes in the shuffle of all the business of my world I will just enjoy everything related to the Bible without taking time to look through it to see God.

All said, make sure to look for God when you read your Bible, and next time I go to the observatory I think I am going to look through a telescope also. =)

Carissa - I love your thoughts section of your blog in the midst of all the great pictures. It’s funny I was reading part of a book today and it said “.. when you magnify like a telescope, you make something unimaginably great look like what it really is”. It was talking about what it means to glorify God. Just a different aspect of the telescope :).
