Love is Magic

the wedding experience

APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY

My work is a combination of heartfelt candids and fine art portraits. I love photos that are colorful and cinematic, with natural skin tones and glowy sunsets. I'm so proud that all the couples I work with, feel like old friends. I love to have fun and joke around at the Engagement shoot and catch up over cocktails at the Timeline Dinner. That comfortable feeling is so important and it's what translates into killer images.

We love working as a couple, with couples. We've been to alot of weddings and we're here to help you stress less and love more! Think of us as your extended Bridal party… with cameras. I'll bring the confetti poppers and encourage jumping on the bed and Ernest will help with all of your boutonniere pinning needs. We're going to laugh a lot, maybe cry a little and capture your memories in the most meaningful and magical way we can. 


I'm here to help you plan and alleviate stress. I understand wedding planning can be extremely overwhelming and stressful, so I created a Planning Guide that includes all of my knowledge from 8 years of planning timelines and making your lives easier. Then 2-3 weeks before your wedding day, we will take you both on a Timeline Dinner date (on us) to iron out timeline details and share a few cocktails. It will make you feel so confident about your wedding and it really solidifies our friendship! 

love more and stress less

My favorite thing to photograh are the in between moments. I shoot with intention, which is a fancy way of saying that I like to watch and wait for things to develop on their own. I have been to so many weddings that I have developed a Spidey sense for anticipating moments. So you can be sure that I'll get Candid photos of all of those little moments, stolen kisses, funny faces and happy tears! 

NEVER MISS A MOMENT

I'm known for my expertise in posing couples to perfection. I don’t expect you to be Models and to be perfectly honest, it's better if you aren't. So don't worry, I'll tell you how to pose and exactly what to do with your hands and once you are comfortable I'll use prompts and games to help you interact and have your real personalities show. My goal is to help you share heartfelt moments, laugh a lot and have a ton of fun! If I can give you an experience that reminds you of the things that made you fall in love, then I've done my job.

the EXPERIENCE

investment

Wedding

I'm not a big fan of one size fits all pricing. I enjoy learning a bit more about your needs and then creating custom packages. On average my couples spend $3,000 on Wedding Photography.

All Wedding Packages include unlimited edited images in a Downloadable Gallery, Expert Posing, A Planning Guide, A Timeline Dinner and options for extra hours, prints and a Fine Art Album.

No Travel Fees for Southern California Weddings. If your Wedding is more than an hour drive from us, we will drive up the night before and stay in a hotel, at no cost to you. That way we can show up fresh and ready to be creative, while avoiding any traffic issues that could cause a late start.

Quick Image Turnaround: I post a Next Day Sneak Peek and email you 5 images you can post! You'll receive the Full Gallery in just 2-3 weeks! That is a full month quicker than the 4-6 week industry standard!

If you feel like you’ve connected with my work and my personality, get in touch today. 

The best part about having a photography team is both of you get a dedicated photographer. There is no running back and forth between rooms, and no missed moments with your bridal party!  I’ll be the one cheering you on and encouraging the bridal party to jump on the bed. Ernest has one rule: if you’re taking shots he has to get a photo of clinking glasses.

Why Choose Us

I make sure to capture all the little things that you have planned for months. I love playing with  textures and finding a way to bring nature into detail shots. Don’t worry I have a last minute check list so you won’t forget any precious detail.

ALL THE PRETTY DETAILS

When it comes to couple portraits, I know how to make you feel comfortable and help your personalities shine! I don't just  take perfectly posed images. I'll direct you with prompts that encourage playfulness so that I capture real laughter and raw emotions. 

REAL LAUGHTER 
AND RAW EMOTION

I'm always on the lookout for candid moments like this one. I have a spidey-sense for anticipating moments before they happen. I like to let things unfold naturally and document every precious moment! 

ALL THE FEELS

Family and friends are an important part of your day! We love meeting the people that helped make you, you. We'll capture the fun, hugs, tears, and dancing. I love moments like the big hops this bridesmaid took to get the bouquet!

we treat you like family

After dinner and the reception traditions are out of the way... it's time to get down on the dance floor. We usually capture 1.5 to 2 hours of dance floor time. We're always on the look out for moments like these: the groomsmen threw the Groom up on their shoulders and paraded him through the Reception.

Party time, excellent

Sparkler and glow stick send offs are the best. We can help you plan one! We know how quickly your wedding day will go by. Let us worry about the timeline so you can spend the night making memories and enjoying the heck out of your wedding day! 

Exit like a boss

We want to do things a bit differently and give you not only magical photos but a magic performance to make your celebration unique! Strolling magic is ideal for wedding receptions because it provides entertainment during the cocktail hour and especially for those guests who would rather not get down on the dance floor and ensures that everyone enjoys a memorable experience. 

This is how it works: Ernest will photograph the guys getting ready and the ceremony, so you won’t have to adjust to a new photographer. Then he will perform close-up magic during the Cocktail Hour and Reception. We can add an additional photographer for the Reception, so you won’t miss out on any photos. In fact, you’ll get a ton more photos of your guests having a great time!
