The only way we know how to craft your story is to walk with you on your path and share your journey.

Let's start a conversation, a collaboration. Because you don't want your images to look like everyone else's.

 

WEDDING

The struggle is real with the ol’ Wedding Industrial Complex – lots of ambiguous packages and “Contact Us for Pricing.” Here you will find transparency in methods and cost, and more importantly, friends and allies as you navigate the overwhelming planning process.

FAMILY

 We're lovers of the perfectly imperfect candid portrait and letting our families' honest emotions and interactions take precedence over the "perfect" posed photograph. We think family photos should be fun and easy. We believe parents should be IN photos with their kids.

Abby designs and styles events, homes, and experiences.

 

We spent the day with Abby Pendergrast doing things her stylist heart loves to do. And since what we love to do is capture people doing what they love to do, the day was phenomenal.

A sunrise elopement to kick off a #vanlife west coast honeymoon.

 

Aimie and Drew woke up before dawn in Joshua Tree National Park on the day of their wedding. They shuffled around their rented motor home in the near darkness to prepare for their exchange of vows at daybreak. Vows that would kick off a long road trip in the Western US and a life together. 

Right before dawn, we found a place where the Big Rocks surrounded us. Aimie and Drew faced one another and made a big promise. 

It was such an honor and a privilege to be their witness.
