Chelsea and Alex: Engagement Photos, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, CA

We're so happy that we can call Chelsea and Alex our friends. That, combined with the fact that they are great at frolicking together through green fields in golden sunlight, means that we pretty much had the best time ever on their engagement session. We seriously couldn't get enough. Too much of this California drought has made us appreciate this blossoming spring season all the more - it was pure magic in the hills. These two are deeply in love and the decision they've made to serve one another for the rest of their lives is inspiring. We can't wait to see their families and friends come together to share in their promise at Chelsea's home this summer. Cheers!

Grace and Brandon: Thousand Oaks Wedding Photographer, Private Estate, Santa Rosa Valley

Grace and Brandon were wed in holy matrimony in the presence of their friends and family. We were there to make sure that no one forgot what happened that day, among other things. We've known Grace for many a year and are so happy to see her find a wonderful partner for life. The reception was held in the backyard of the house Grace grew up in, which made the entire event feel very intimate and inviting. One of the best things about this wedding was the fact that Grace and Brandon spent pretty much all night dancing their faces off. There's nothing better than when a Bride and Groom really know how to celebrate. Now go ahead and enjoy some photos of some beautiful people.

Jon and Savannah - engagement photos, Thousand Oaks, Lake Sherwood, CA

Last week, we walked through fields of gold with Jon and Savannah. We couldn't be more excited for these two people to dive head-first into marriage. A while back, Peter photographed Jon for his personal project, Heed the Beard. You need to check it out.  What's awesome is that we know that when these two get married in August, it won't be the last time we'll be seeing them. Becoming friends with clients is like getting to take the whole party home with you. We're getting to share this awesome time in their lives with them and it immediately makes us closer. So take a gander at some beautiful people loving each other in beautiful places and be inspired. I know we were.

When four roommates all become brides: bridemates - Thousand Oaks, CA, Bridal Portraits

So here's a once in a lifetime experience: we got to photograph not 1, not 6...but 4 brides! The story goes like this: all of them were roommates until each of them was wedded off to the man of their dreams. This only took about 6 months actually. Thankfully for us, they decided to don their gowns one more time to celebrate their friendship/matrimonies. So. Rad.
