Kelly and Kyle’s Wedding – Malibu, California

First off, we apologize to all of you who have your face blown off by this uber-long, super epic blog post. It was completely out of our control. We were just too excited about too many photos. If you make it to the bottom you will be rewarded with some ol’ timey film photos. Kyle and Kelly’s wedding was such an amazing event to be a part of. They invited 25 of their closest family and friends to a rad house on a mountaintop in Malibu. Awesomeness proceeded. We felt truly blessed to have been a part of such special and intimate moments and we know that these two amazing humans have a love that will last them a lifetime.

Kelly and Kyle really like the look and feel of film and asked that we use some at their wedding. Um…..yes. Enjoy!

Lincoln: Newborn Photography, Simi Valley, CA

Lincoln arrived! He is quite the trooper and was content to sleep through pretty much everything we put him through. So fun to be able to photograph this amazing time in Jessica and Rick’s life. We know they’re going to make great parents. Thanks for letting us be a little part of Lincoln’s life!

Engagement Session

Kyle and Kelly: engagement photos, Avalon, Catalina Island, CA

The day we spent with Kelly and Kyle on Catalina Island goes down in the books as one of the most epic engagement sessions we’ve ever done. Catalina is about an hour by boat from Los Angeles but feels like a world away. Kyle grew up on the island and Kelly has family from there as well…crazy coincidence since there’s only about four thousand people on the island. Clearly they were meant to find each other.

Kyle’s parents picked us up in their awesome 1960s Volkswagon bus and drove us all over the island on roads that are only accessible to locals. When we got to the other side of the island, we watched a tall ship (or a pirate ship according to Emily) anchor as the last bit of sunlight streamed through the low clouds and made dazzling patterns on the Pacific. Magic.

We can’t wait to get our film back from this shoot and will probably be sharing more photos once we do. Also soon to come: Kelly and Kyle’s intimate wedding on a Malibu mountaintop!

Engagement Session

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.

We had the honor to film Steph and Ted’s amazing wedding at the ever-so-stylish Elysian. The day was basically perfect and their wedding was stunningly beautiful. Seeing as though we made a film, it’s probably better you just check it out and see for yourself. Thanks Steph and Ted for letting us be a part of your wonderful wedding!

Six UCLA Grads-to-be – Senior Portraits, Los Angeles, CA

When six awesome roommates asked us to do their senior portraits…we said yes. Cool story huh? All of these girls are super rad and have been close friends all through their college experience. Having both graduated from UCLA, it was a blast for Emily and I to be back on campus without the stress of finals and finishing the daily sudoku. Here are a few of our favorite images from the day. Congratulations ladies!

Jamie and Jessica: Engagement Photos, Santa Barbara Courthouse, Isla Vista, CA

This was a super fun engagement session. Jamie and Jessica came down from the San Francisco area to spend an afternoon with us in Santa Barbara. It was so fun to get to know them and hear about how their relationship started out 12 years ago when they were students at UC Santa Barbara. We explored the grounds of an awesome courthouse and then finished up on the coast right in front of the dorm where it all started. The circle of life? Maybe.

Malcolm and Victoria’s Wedding – The Victorian, Venice Beach, CA

Once again we come to one of those blog posts that are just too long but we just can’t help ourselves. When you get to hang out with a couple like Victoria and Malcolm all day you can’t help but have some of the most fun you’ve ever had. Just to be renegades, they planned their wedding on the only rainy weekend that California has ever had. That just meant we got to play around/procure killer images in the basement speakeasy at the Victorian in Venice Beach. We felt so welcomed by this couple and their families. Despite the rain, the wedding went off without a hitch and we couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful day. Malcolm and Victoria, can’t wait to hangout with you guys again!

Alyssa Armstrong – Portraits, Ventura, CA

This is our friend Alyssa. She’s a pretty amazing woman and a great photographer. As a photographer, its not always often that Alyssa gets to be on the other side of the camera. But it was high time she experienced the goodness that is getting your portrait taken. We had a great time exploring some new places in Ventura. We’ve really been enjoying this whole personal portrait thing.  Let’s do more of this. If you want us to take your picture, call upon us.
