Watching the world go by from the yellowed window of a train. The smell of a pine forest and its crunch beneath your feet. Making a fort out of the couch cushions. Messily splashing into the ocean. You’ve been inspired by adventure since you were knobby-kneed in the sandbox—whether it’s now trying a new café, searching Reddit for epic catfails or TILs, letting the waves sink your toes in the sand, treasure-hunting at the thrift shop, or wandering around in urban nooks and crannies a little aimlessly, giggling with the one you love. Discovery is an enriching part of who you are, especially when you get to share it with the person that makes you starry-eyed.
You inspire us. The way you interact together makes us starry-eyed. As primarily San Diego, LA and Palm Springs wedding photographers, we love embracing the laid-back California attitude that drew us here in the first place. We won’t make you hold up skewed picture frames to awkwardly stand behind, nor carefully arrange you in unfamiliar or uncomfortable positions. That stuff kinda makes us cringe. You’re quirky and unusual and nontraditional. You’re so weird together that it’s not weird at all. Your relationship doesn’t look like anybody else’s, and we love that.
When we adventure together, it’s all about your natural interactions, from teasing to snuggling to quiet time to laughing so hard your belly hurts. You don’t give a flying floozy about smoldering eyes and dramatic glamor. You care about being yourselves, and that means so many different things to different people. You don’t want your wedding to feel like a performance, nor do you want it to feel pretend. So we’ll encourage mischief and mayhem, but also just being fully in this moment of all of time and space. Wanna do a quiet breakfast in bed? Go for it. Wanna eat pie and make a mess? Go for it. Wanna cuddle on your porch? Go for it. Wanna curse? Go for it. Wanna climb shit and explore hidden things and run around like a nut? Go for it, we’re already capturing the crazy. Don’t know where to put those crazy appendages called hands? Not to worry, that’s not what our time together is about—we’re going to put you at ease and allow you to engage with each other naturally (all while, of course, feeling and looking your best. We gotchu.). Let’s not make our adventure about poses or a contrived, styled set full of pretty and meaningless props. Let’s make it about that magical and intangible string that ties you together, in an environment that inspires you. Cool stuff is, well, cool… but you exude goodness that outshines that by about a gajillion percent.
Let’s hang out. Let us capture your ongoing discovery of one another. Let’s get in a car, crank the music, and head somewhere amazing.
