A Sampling of Favorite Moments from 2016

Well another year has come to an end (yeah, yeah, we know that happened like 5 weeks ago) and we're left feeling like we have no idea where the time went. In an attempt to make some sense out of the last 12 months and get an idea of what sort of work we were producing, we went back through the images we made and picked out some of our favorite photos. Does this collection of photos truly capture all of our favorite moments from this year? Absolutely not. Not even close. This was whittled down from about 500 photos...which was already hard. And in hopes that we wouldn't leave you scrolling for all of 2017, we tried our best to just share a sampling of all the great moments that blew our minds this past year. Our 2016 was filled with so much joy and beauty. We are infinitely grateful to everyone who trusted us to tell their stories through the art of photography. Thank you all so much for opening up your lives to us.  Thanks for looking!

Amanda and Ryan: Palm Springs Wedding Photographer, Ace Hotel and Swim Club

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.

Ryan and Amanda - Engagement Photos, Ace Hotel, Palm Springs, Botanical gardens

There's just something about being in the desert. All that open space. The quiet. The otherworldly landscape is seriously inspiring. When Ryan and Amanda told us that they wanted to do their engagement session in Palm Springs we freaked out a little bit. Palm Springs is one of favorite places and we couldn't have been more excited. We met them at the Ace Hotel (our normal haunt when we're in town) for a day of exploring and good times. Ryan and Amanda were so fun to hangout with and we had a great time showing them around one of our favorite towns. We can't wait for their wedding later this year!
