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.

Jamie and Case: Ventura Wedding Photographer, Private Estate

One of our all-time favorite types of weddings is the "backyard wedding." This particular wedding happened in the front yard but it still counts. Jamie and Case said their vows surrounded by only their family and closest friends overlooking the coastal town of Ventura. There was a ton of amazing food, happy tears shed, and general merriment. It was so beautiful to see how both of the families came together to support the new couple. It was obvious hanging out with Jamie and Case that they have a lot of fun together and love each other deeply. It was truly an honor to be there to witness this joyful union.

Andrew and Jenn: Smog Shoppe Wedding Photographer, Los Angeles, CA

Andrew and Jenn's wedding was truly inspiring. Everyone withstood the triple digit temperatures with a smile on their face. These two have been together a looong time and everyone was so very excited to see them finally tie the knot. They had their reception at the Smog Shoppe in Culver City which has more style and elegance than you could ever ask for. Not to mention they added their own fabulous touches to the event. Jenn had two fabulous wedding gowns, the second being a surprise for her groom. We had such a great time photographing these two and their whole beautiful bridal party who were such good sports. We are so happy Andrew and Jenn found us and trusted up to capture this beautiful memory for them.

Michelle and Keith: Mammoth Mountain Wedding Photographer, Hayden Cabin

Mammoth holds a special place in our hearts. We both have a lot of early memories of being there with our family and friends. The mountains always seem to have such a draw on us. When Michelle and Keith asked us to photograph their wedding in Mammoth we were ecstatic. Being able to photograph two awesome people in a place this stunning is really what we're all about. All of their guests were so extremely happy to see these two come together and the feeling was contagious. Their wedding was full of heartfelt toasts, an abundance of tears, and some killer dance moves. Enjoy.

Andrew and Jenn: Engagement Photos, Griffith Park, Abandoned LA Zoo

We are so excited to photograph Jenn and Andrew's wedding in a couple weeks at the Smog Shoppe in LA. Especially after we got to see how awesome they are in front of the camera during their engagement shoot. We spent the evening exploring an abandoned zoo. Who knew that old animal cages would have such killer light? It was a serious playground for us. Their may have been a few animal ghost encounters but we all came out unharmed. These two have a super dynamic look and we knew we'd come out with some killer shots. They didn't disappoint. The best moments were when they got slightly embarassed with a camera so close to their face and then starting cracking up. Their wedding can't come soon enough...and I'm sure they feel the same way.
