Journalistic Wedding Photography




With our journalistic approach, we hand over images that are an accurate representation of who you are as an individual and as a couple. We give you a space to show who you truly are and how you truly feel about each other. Serious, sassy, sweet, intimate, playful, touchy-feely, etc. - we're totally cool with it. Those real, raw, vulnerable moments are what makes timeless images. Don't worry if you tend to be shy, we'll help ya out! We're always down for a super you session, bring the pups, bring the vintage car or motorcycle, bring the booze. Let's shoot your engagement session in your kitchen, or at your favorite coffee shop. Let's getcha married in another country - let's go all the damn way with it! If you and your partner value the authentic documentation of your relationship and creative photography is a must for you, then we're likely a pretty solid match.

At the end of the day, photography is way more to us than just a "job." We want to connect with the people who dance around in front of our cameras. So, let's meet up! Tell us who you are and what you're made of. What are you looking for in life? What are your wildest dreams? What makes you feel like a kid again?

Let's get to know each other.

After all, we're story tellers, and there's no better way to tell a story than to truly know it.


Do you travel?

Heck yeah we do! There is no destination too far for us. All of our packages have some travel included. If you need more mileage, or you're planning a wedding outside of California, we can put together a custom package for you. One of our dreams is to shoot a wedding in Iceland. If this is you, contact us asap, and we'll work something out. ;)

Is it too early to book a photographer?

We urge that you don't wait to book your photographer. It's common for photographers to be completely booked up to a year in advance. We recommend already having your date locked in with your venue before hiring a photographer. Sometimes the venue of your dreams may not have the date you want available, and your photographer might not be able to accommodate a different date.

Just a heads up, COVID has postponed a bunch of 2020 weddings into 2021 & 2022. Don't wait to book your wedding team! We are currently booking for 2022.

What's the turn around time?

Up to 3 weeks for engagement sessions, and up to 6 weeks for wedding galleries.

What if the weather sucks?

Unless it is life threatening, we say let's do it. Our camera equipment is weather sealed, and we are totally down for chilly weather and snowball fights.

Will you give us every photo that you took? Do you send RAW unedited images?

We do not send you every photo we take. We select the best of the best to edit and send to you. We do not send raw or unedited photos to anyone.
