Hi! I’m Jasmine, lead photographer and head honcho, teller of stories, and eater of French fries based in San Diego (but always itching for adventure in the nooks and crannies of the world over). I grew up in Montreal, so I like Arcade Fire, speaking French, and eating poutine. I’m armed with incorrigibly curly hair, pesky freckles, and a hopelessly silly side. My enormous tuxedo cat named George is balanced by my skinny Scottish husband named (what else?) Scott.
I’m a lover of the written word, donuts, and awkward dance moves. I’m constantly wowed by the wildly contrasting climates and terrains of California—the majestic and unfathomable ocean alongside the craggy mountains and golden hills spread out by a shrubby, tepid desert. Every day I look out the window with wonder. I believe that #loveislove, and it is my immense pleasure to serve a variety of diverse couples. Six years as a graphic designer and brand strategist helped me to fall in love with storytelling and out of love with the world of corporate bureaucracy. Authentically connecting to real live human beings is my jam! I’m also also a whole-hearted believer in the genuineness, curiosity, growth, and art of making things with one’s hands. I use mine occasionally to sew things or strum on my guitar, and daily to tell stories about incredible magic between inspired people. I’d love to tell yours.

- JulieLead Photographer & Shameless 90's Lover
If you mix a night on the town knockin’ back beer with a love of her adorable puppy, endless energy, and the midwest repping in a big way, you get a big serving of Julie. Hailing from Iowa, Julie has a down-to-earth, excitable, positive attitude with a little snarky joking in for good measure. She can recite just about every R&B/Rap lyric from the 90’s on demand, and she’s got the moves to go with it. She never misses her 10k steps a day, calls it like it is, and she’s got you covered with a great eye and can-do spirit. CHECK OUT JULIE’S LEAD PORTFOLIO HERE!
- ShelbyAssistant Photographer & Sassy Mc Sassypants
Shelby’s a people person and her versatility slays all day. She brings the energy and she’ll make you laugh from morning ’til night. She keeps it real, and she’s got your back, working away at making things happen. She has an ideal climate of 75-80 degrees which means we see her wrapped in blankets or hugging the AC all the time. She’s got two messy puppers, two wildling kiddos, one navy husband, and a whole bunch of sass. Shelby’s Northwest roots and San Diego spirit are a match made in heaven, and if you’re lucky she’ll tell you stories about her adorably kooky kids that’ll make you giggle out loud.
- LoryelleAssistant Photographer & Style Maven
Loryelle is a powerhouse in a tiny package. Originally from Arizona, her background in photography and her ongoing creative work as an interior designer make her über-versatile (and super stylin’). She’s an inspired and sweet-meets-sassy soul brimming with ideas and her caring nature has led to clients often remarking at how wonderful she is. She tenderly works her magic like a behind-the-scenes ninja at weddings. Kinda like the wizard of Oz, only, curlier. Nabbing amazing moments before you even realized she was there is her superpower. Her attention to detail and steady hands always leave us impressed.
- ErinAssistant Photographer and Color Queen
Erin is a celebrator of life, love, humans, honesty, and authenticity. She’s a mom of three boys and in her limited spare time, she somehow finds extra time to coach her kiddos’ baseball, as well as mentor other photographers. She’s got a sharp eye and is one of the fastest guns in the west when it comes to capturing moments. A fanatic for color, vibrancy, and magic, and a super creative film photographer who finds inspiration in every nook and cranny, we are big fans of the wonderful Erin and her can-do, buoyant spirit.
