Sometimes, you meet someone at a picnic fundraiser and they change your life forever. I gave Jessie a ride to the grocery story 11 years ago and afterward, she introduced me to Lindsay. I can’t ever thank her enough for running out of paper plates and napkins! Fast forward a decade and we have another […]

When we first photographed these three for their engagement session, we had no idea we’d get to experience their promises in such an intimate setting. It was always a plan for Sydney and Vannesa to get married in the woods on 10.10.2020 but to have only a handful of people there to experience it was […]

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 […]

During our wedding, I got to walk down the aisle to the song, “Thousand Years”. You know the one…from Twilight. Say what you will, but seeing Lindsay and walking toward our future to those sweet words was one of the most powerful moments in my life. I enjoyed the movies, loved the books, and adored […]

When Brittany and Alina told us they were getting married at a Lavender Farm, we couldn’t wait! I didn’t even know we had one close. Turns out Lavender Ridge is located just a few miles outside downtown Reno, NV. And it’s lovely. Photographing mid-day in the sun was something I never wanted to do before […]

Some of my favorite quotes are by Coco Chanel. One I can’t help but think about as I remember Madison and Chris’ wedding day is, “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” Madison is clearly both. Each of her choices from where to get ready (The Sawyer Hotel) to her dress, to her […]

An alternative to the signature colors of autumn-inspiration for brides who want to get married in October or November, but want something softer than orange, yellow, and red…

When our brides and grooms tell us they picked and Airbnb to get ready the morning of their wedding, we’re never sure what kind of light we’re going to get. We’re so familiar…

Diablo Country Club’s motto is “Excellence since 1914” and they lived up to every bit of that motto. When Allison took us on a site-tour, I’m sure we looked surprised
