We were so lucky to be a part of Becca & Corey’s wedding. Becca is the resident wedding planner at Beatnik Studios (our venue), owner of Events By Rebecca, and our friend, making her decision to host her wedding at Beatnik and to hire us to photograph it incredibly humbling. The first four images are […]

More than not, our couples tell us they don’t like being photographed. The exact words are usually, “I hate being photographed.” We smile and reassure them they just haven’t met the right photographers yet. This is one of those couples. “We don’t know what to do.” “We don’t know how to stand.” “We’ve never had […]

I didn’t know she also represented a gorgeous winery in Amador County. I’m not nervous to go places by myself, but […]
