Brian and Amanda – Engagement Session, The Stonehaus Winery, Westlake Village, California

Brian and Amanda were a blast to spend the afternoon with. They’re both extremely in love and fun to hangout with. One of the huge perks of this job is making new friends like these two. For their engagement session, we decided to start out at the location of their first date: Stonehaus Winery and Vineyards. We drank some seriously tasty wine and basked in the sunshine. We ended up the afternoon exploring the hills in the gathering dusk. Much laughter and enjoyment ensued. Good times if you ask me.

James and Lindsey: Backyard Wedding Photography, Santa Paula, CA

James and Lindsey’s wedding can best be described as a dream. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a joyful group of people as those who came together to celebrate this union. The home Lindsey grew up in laid the perfect background for the comfortable family affair. We felt like we became friends with everybody around. There was cigars, bocci ball, steak, and also a lot of  daners who wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. Let’s relive this event through a few (aka a lot) of images.

Fred and Whitney: Engagement Photos, Malibu Creek, CA

This here is one of those classic examples of true love. Fred and Whitney are the real deal and they’re going to seal that deal. We had a great time exploring Malibu creek and witnessed a sunset that could well be described as “extreme.” It’s a good thing this isn’t the last time we’re going to have these two in front of our cameras.

Jon and Savannah’s Wedding: Secret Garden, Moorpark, CA

These two have something seriously special together. We were so stoked when they asked us to shoot their wedding. Its hard to describe a life-changing event in just a few words. But we will tell you that this is one of those wedding that reminds Peter and I of all the reasons we got married. Jon and Savannah had a lot of love surrounding them in the secret garden where they got married. Here’s a little bit of what their day looked like.

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!

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!

Erica and Gino: Engagement Photos, Malibu, CA

We got to spend a glorious evening with Erica and Gino and their dog Chase. We met them at Malibu Seafood (super good) for a late lunch then went to their favorite beach to hangout. It’s such a privilege to witness the beauty of a relationship. Walking down the sunny beach, it was so amazing to watch the way that Erica and Gino interacted and genuinely enjoyed each other. We finished the night off with a glass of wine and talked until the light faded. We’re so glad these two are a part of our lives and that we’ll get to photograph them saying their vows on the cliffs of Big Sur this Fall. Epic times.

James and Lindsey: Engagement photos, Santa Paula, CA

Sometimes, you just have to go ahead and post a ton o’ photos. This is one of those times. We spent an afternoon exploring the historic town of Santa Paula with James and Lindsey creating some engagement images. Almost everywhere we went, we had people honking and waving…these two are pretty much famous in this town. And why not? They’re basically perfect together. I have no more words to describe the awesomeness that ensued. You should really just scroll down and look at the photos.

Sammy and Alex: Engagement Photos, Westlake, CA

Oh man….this was good time. Sammy and Alex have to be one of the most genuine coupes we’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Their smiles and laughter were straight up contagious. We had such a great time getting now them and tromping around through nature. Let’s just say they were about 5 feet away from getting run over by a deer. Crazy. In conclusion: good people, killer hangs.

2013 Favorites – a collection of wedding, travel, maternity, engagement photography

Well, that was a good year – it’s crazy that 2013 is over already. It’s really hard for us to look at our work objectively and so it’s hard to pick our “best” work from our many thousands of photos. These images don’t really represent the scope of our work and aren’t necessarily our “best” but they are certainly some of our favorites from this last year. We are so thankful for all of the awesome people who have trusted us to photograph them on some of the most important days of their lives. We’ve made some great friendships and seen some cool places. It’s been an amazing journey and it’s so fun to look back on this year and see the ways we’ve grown. We can’t wait for what 2014 will bring!
