So we met these two amazing people, Natalia and Bobby, when they asked us to take their engagement photos early this year in Joshua Tree. After an epic time scrambling around rock formations and hiking through the desert, we came away with a new friendship. In November, we had the honor of traveling to the town of San Miguel de Allende, near Mexico City to photograph their wedding. Two days before they actually tied the knot, they lead a processional of their wedding guests accompanied by huge dancing puppets, a mariachi band, and a sweet but skittish donkey through the streets of the historic town. Photographing these two around the gorgeous walls and scenes of San Miguel was an unforgettable experience. We really hope to return someday and reminisce...and maybe have a few tequila shots in Bobby and Natalia's honor. So, we haven't blogged for a while and consiquently weren't too good at whittling down this post so...I guess what we mean to say is enjoy and get comfy!
Amanda and Ryan brought their family, friends, and party faces out to the magical Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. This wedding had so much style and it was beautifully pulled off by an amazing team of artists who made the day feel effortless: floral designs by Dainty Lion, rentals by Witty Rentals, hair and makeup by Amy Clarke, and planning by Beau and Arrow Events. Amanda designed her own dress because she is basically a fashion genius and as you can tell from his smolder, Ryan is a man among men. The party was an absolute blast thanks to tunes spun by the Flashdance and to all the guests who know how to get down. The night was topped off with a glorious polar bear dip in the pool - couldn't have thought of a better ending ourselves.

Megan and Casey are such a great match. It's hard to find words to describe the joy of their wedding day. Emily and I felt so honored to be there to memorialize the memories forever. I've known Megan since I was born and we kind of grew up together. She is such a joyful and loving person and such a blast to be around. It's pretty crazy that we have baby photos together and now I've photographed her wedding. I only met Casey a few years ago but he is such an awesome guy and is just the man for Megan. I couldn't be happier for them. Their wedding was kind of a crazy experience for me as there were all these guests there who hadn't seen me since I was like 7 years old and still call me "Petey". Although I'm much older and my beard is much longer, it was great to catch up and be reminded of the good ol' days. Megan and Casey, you guys are awesome and I'm so excited that you two get to enjoy the beauty and joys of marriage together!
