Bevin+Mark: Rockmill Brewery Engagement

Bevin + Mark, thank you so much for having us be a part of your Rockmill Brewery Engagement session. You two are a perfect couple and so easy to get along with – And that’s not just because you bought us a beer! It’s not often that we get quality “hang” time with our couples but we love when the stars align and it happens. We can’t wait to shoot your wedding in December at Via Vecchia. An engagement with beer and a wedding with wine… you pretty much won our hearts when you told us the details that you have been planing.

Oh and your actual engagement was so cute! We loved that Mark tried to incorporate all your favorite things.  Forgive me for getting caught up in the story and not remembering them all – but I do remember fireworks and hamburgers <3 You guys are so cute!

Andy+Shaila: Country Club Wedding

Andy+Shaila: Country Club Wedding

Shaila + Andy’s wedding day started at Charles Penzone in Dublin, OH. Shaila and her ladies got beautified then headed to The Lakes Country Club in Westerville. The weather was perfect and the setting was gorgeous for this couples special day. There were so many special moments that it’s hard to name our favorites! Andy repeatedly looking at Shaila with the sweetest look on his face and hands on his heart and saying, “I love you so much” – or Shaila “just needing a minute” before their first-look. Not to mention when Ava (daughter and flower girl) ran to them for her first look. Could not handle the sweetness of that moment!

There were so many other things that made this day unforgettable, but I’m limiting myself. Needless to say, everything was perfect. We wish you two the absolute best in the years to come and can’t wait to see your relationship grow!

Ashleigh + Ilias – State Park Engagement Session

Ashleigh + Ilias – State Park Engagement Session

I don’t know if I can properly tell you how much we love and adore this couple – to the moon and back! I’ve known Ash for a handful of years and Ilias almost as long. I am proud to say I saw them being together a mile away! Both of them have the biggest hearts and will gladly give you the shirt off their back if need be. Now the title of this post is a little misleading… they are already officially married but are throwing a bash next August in Mexico. Cannot wait!! We decided to keep things easy and just went to a park in Columbus, OH. We had some pretty gorgeous light at Antrim Park and it’s plain to see how much these two love each other.

These two truly are each others better half. When I sit with the two of them it feels like they’ve always been together. A special and inspiring relationship. To my good friends with tons and tons of love, all the best in the long amount of years ahead! <3

Caitlin+EJ: Columbus Museum of Art Wedding

Caitlin+EJ: Columbus Museum of Art Wedding

Caitlin + E.J. are a beautiful couple who chose to have a Columbus Museum of Art Wedding. As high school sweethearts, it’s plain to see that they adore each other. Caitlin is now a nurse helping those in need at Grant Medical Center. E.J. is in life insurance. Both of them have a fondness for country living as can be seen in their engagement session here. The day started out perfect with temps in the 80’s and beautiful skies. The museum was a perfect location to have their wedding. The glass ceilings and contemporary art made for a gorgeous backdrop for this celebration.

Lauren+Jeff – Temecula Winery Engagement Session

Lauren+Jeff – Temecula Winery Engagement Session

We met Lauren and Jeff out in Temecula Wine Country for their engagement session. We had picked an initial location but after arriving and scoping the area we just weren’t thrilled. Thankfully, Lauren’s mother and best friend had come along and suggested we move down the road the to the beautiful South Coast Winery. It was perfect! We were able to capture the feeling of wine country, while still having loads of variety in backgrounds.

Lauren and Jeff are getting married next year at the gorgeous Via Vecchia in Columbus OH. When we first started the booking process with this couple we realized that they had moved to Ohio from SoCal just about the same time Adam and I did the opposite. Small world! We are so glad that we were able to meet up for their engagement session out here. The weather was perfect and we finished off the session with a glass o’ vino (compliments of Lauren’s wonderful mother) and a gorgeous sunset. Congratulations Lauren and Jeff! We cannot wait for the big day!

Colleen+Donny – Richard Nixon Library Wedding

Colleen+Donny – Richard Nixon Library Wedding

Okay, “reception” is too mild a word! Colleen and Donny put together a beautiful “election” themed celebration. They put so much attention into the details and it was absolutely charming. From the campaign buttons, to the election stickers – not to mention the delightful red, white and blue balloons! Plus they had the perfect setting for such a theme!

The Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California,  was a perfect location for Colleen and Donny’s vow renewal. From the ceremony site on the lush grounds, to the beautiful reception hall, their celebration was picture perfect! And look at that gorgeous bride! Absolutely stunning!

We hope the two of you have an incredibly relaxing time on your honeymoon in Bora-Bora (yeah maybe we’re a little jealous!). Wishing you a life time of love and happiness!

Oh, and future brides, we loved their idea of creating a custom hashtag for the wedding. #chiapartyoftwo – great way for your to see all the images your guests are taking through the reception.

Tiffani + Christopher – Redondo Beach Wedding

Tiffani + Christopher – Redondo Beach Wedding

While I was shooting Tiffani and Christopher’s engagement session in Long Beach I came to realize that they were in fact married (surprise!). You can check out the engagement session here. Tiffani and Christopher met in school and immediately the two of them, and everyone else around them, knew that they’d found their other half.

Being from opposite sides of the United States they wanted to have two celebrations to include all their loved ones. They decided to officially tie the knot in Maryland. Then a year later, they were joined here on the West Coast (best coast) by the rest of their family & friends.

The 2nd wedding took place in Redondo Beach at the The Chart House. The weather was perfect and the bridal party was exceptional. Loved how all the girls helped each other get ready! At one point their was a train of girls doing each others hair and makeup. Oh and I will say this; we don’t always do jumping shots, but when we do, the bride jumps higher than everyone!

Although it was a second go round for Tiffani and Chris – it was so evident the joy and excitement that everyone had for the two of them. What a wonderful support system you two have!! All the best!!

Bree+Chris: Newport Marriott Wedding

Bree+Chris: Newport Marriott Wedding

Bree and Chris got married on a beautiful afternoon at the Marriott in Newport. One of the first things we loved about these two was how involved Chris was. He so clearly wanted it to be perfect for his bride. It’s pretty special when we meet a groom who’s excited about what he found on Etsy, or getting creative with props for the wedding. We loved that he genuinely cared – you got a good one Bree!

They are such a wonderful couple and they already make up 2/3’s of an amazing family. After these two realized that they had found their match, they decided that they couldn’t wait to start their new life together. Enter the most adorable little boy, Kellan! Sporting his little red chucks he led the way down the aisle for Mommy – more than a couple tears were shed! Such a sweet moment!

Ashley + Ryan- The Hills of Orange Wedding

Ashley and Ryan got married on a beautiful sunny afternoon at Jardin de Laurent in the Hills of Orange. It was a perfect location with a view to die for! They had an intimate and elegant gathering for only family and their closest friends. Their wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful. It was a lovely reflection of the two of them and their sweet relationship.

We shot Ashley and Ryans engagement session in Olde Towne Orange and it was gorgeous – if you haven’t seen it yet click here to view!

Ami + Doug: Fullerton Wedding

Ami + Doug: Fullerton Wedding

Ami and Doug are a match made in heaven! We’ve watched their sweet relationship through social media and it’s so cute! On facebook with videos Doug takes of Ami, Instagram and pictures Ami takes of Doug. So obvious that they are a perfect fit for each other. I mean, check out there engagement session if you don’t believe me!

Their wedding was at the The Summit House in Fullerton, California. Beautiful location for their summer wedding. Everything was perfect and laid back! Both being Jewish, they were able to create a celebration that incorporated traditional aspects while also clearly representing their unique relationship.

Ami and Doug, we were so happy to be a part of your celebration! We know you two are headed back from your honeymoon(looked gorgeous by the way!), and we wanted to get this up as a welcome home surprise! Congratulations to you both! We know there are many love and laughter filled years ahead!

Jamison + Joe – Rustic Backyard Wedding

Jamison + Joe – Rustic Backyard Wedding

We were delighted and honored to be a part of Jamison and Joe’s beautiful rustic backyard wedding. Adam has known Jamison for years and when she asked if we would be willing to travel to shoot hers, there was no hesitation.

Their wedding was set in two back yard locations and was filled with such amazing details. The only thing over shadowing this perfect set-up was the love between this adorable couple.

They met in college but the timing just wasn’t right. Several years down the road when asked who in his past he would consider marrying (what guys talk about this stuff?!), Joe said Jamison was the one. Now there is definitely more to the story, but to hear their vows spoken with such love and emotion, it’s obvious that fate was just waiting for perfect timing. Congratulations you two! We couldn’t be happier or more excited that you have each other for all of life’s little adventures!

Brittany+Brandon: San Clemente Engagement Session

Brittany+Brandon: San Clemente Engagement Session

We had such a fun time shooting Brittany and Brandon’s San Clemente engagement session! They picked the site of the San Clemente casino and one of Brandon’s favorite surf spots. The overcast sky was perfect for being able to shoot wherever we wanted. And the location was awesome for creating these beautiful images.

All their smiles and laughter show just how much they enjoy each other. They are so laid back and easy to be around. It felt like we were just hanging out with a couple friends! We are so excited to be the ones capturing your wedding. It’s going to be beautiful and perfect!

Amanda + Chris – Santa Ana Hacienda Wedding

Amanda + Chris – Santa Ana Hacienda Wedding

Amanda and Chris are a wonderful couple that are so sweet together! Adam and I shot their engagement session at Disney Land and had a blast. They were so laid back and relaxed and we knew they’re wedding day would be much the same. And as we expected, it was perfect! Even with a minor set-back in their timeframe, they rolled with it and enjoyed every second of their special day.

The Hacienda in Santa Ana was a gorgeous location! They were able to have an elegant wedding that was also warm and inviting. All the little touches that they added made it a beautiful experience for each of their guests. From a candy bar, adorable succulent favors (I’m a sucker for succulents!), a mexican feast, hilarious dancing – well the list goes on and on!

Congratulations you two! You’re day couldn’t have been more wonderful and we’re so excited to be able to help you relive it!!

Ashley + Chad – Laguna Beach Wedding

Ashley + Chad – Laguna Beach Wedding

 

After spending time with Ashley and Chad for their Engagement Session we were so excited to be a part of their special day! They are such a laid back, sweet couple! We had beautiful weather for their intimate Laguna Beach wedding. Their ceremony took place on the beach in Laguna and their reception on the rooftop terrace at Inn at Laguna Beach. Fair warning, this post may be a bit longer than usual – both Ashley and Chad spent so much time putting together their wedding day that I just wanted to include as much as possible!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I will most likely get a little teary-eyed during almost every ceremony. That was definitely true for Ashley and Chad’s wedding! It’s so apparent that they are head over heels in love with each other that I just kept getting emotional throughout the reception, ridiculous! After Adam and I had packed up our things for the night I went to say goodbye to Ashley and she just gushed the sweetest things! Water works! I had to tell her to stop or I would have been a sobbing mess! At one point during the night I overheard a group of Ashley and Chad’s friends talking about the couple (yes I was eaves dropping!). They all had exceptional things to say about both of them. They raved about Ashley’s cooking and then her as a person. They talked about how lucky Ashley and Chad are to have each other. You know you’re surrounded by good people when they’re gossiping about how amazing you are!

Congratulations Ashley and Chad! We were blessed to be able to capture even a fraction of what is obviously a special and unique love!

Tiffani + Christopher – Long Beach Engagement Session

Tiffani + Christopher – Long Beach Engagement Session

Meet Tiffani and Christopher! We had a bit of an overcast day to work with, but at least it wasn’t raining! We chose Shoreline Aquatic Park for their Long Beach engagement session and it turned out perfect. It’s a tiny park with a lot of variety!

Tiffani and Christopher are a beautiful couple with an obviously steadfast love. They met in school and it was game over for these two. Found out at the engagement session that they are already technically hitched (couldn’t wait another second!), and the wedding we’re shooting for them in July will be the 2nd go round – Let the celebration continue!! They were a pleasure to work with and basically convinced me that we’re moving to that side of town. Can’t wait for the SECOND big day you guys!!

Thought this was hilarious! “Okay Christopher, I’m going to have you wrap your arms around Tiffani’s shoulders. Uhm, not in a headlock…” Someone is obviously a wrestler!

Caitlin+EJ- Country Engagement Session

Caitlin+EJ- Country Engagement Session

How many people in high school think that their sweetheart was going to become their husband or wife? What a special time in your life to discover love! Caitlin+EJ actually met in high school and have been together ever since. Being the helpless romantic that EJ is, he took Caitlin off to Hawaii to surprise her with not only a ring, but the start of a wonderful life together! Caitlin is a nurse – who wouldn’t love this sweet woman taking care of them? EJ is in life insurance with Nationwide, so if you need to protect your future, this is the man to contact. We can’t wait for you to see this beautiful country engagement session.

Laura and I are very excited to share their special day with them at the Columbus Museum of Art in August. What a better way for a pair of photographers to spend the day than admiring artists from all genre’s and doing what we love, capturing emotion. I’m not going to lie, EJ seems like a very strong man, but I guarantee he’s going to cry like a baby when he see’s his bride walk down that aisle for the first time! Congrats guys! Can’t wait for the big da

I have to thank our past bride and groom for allowing us to use their amazing land, so rustic and beautiful.

Brittany + Steven – Yorba Linda Wedding

Meet Brittany & Steven and take a look at their beautiful wedding! What a sweet, loving couple! When we first sat down with Brittany & Steven over a coffee we knew it was a match made in heaven (Adam and I also used yellow and gray as our wedding colors!). Then after Adam shot their engagement session – well, we just got so excited to be involved in their special day! Their wedding took place at Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda. And may I say they have some of the BEST event planners on staff. So friendly and on top of things. But anyways, Brittany and Steven have a very sweet relationship – it was an absolute joy for us to be able to capture just a taste of it!

First look was interrupted by some golfers but still turned out perfect! Steven made Brittany take a spin so he could take in the dress! I think his words were, “That’s not what I expected!”. Love it when a bride shocks the socks off her husband to be. Way to go Brittany!!

Ashley + Ryan – Old Towne Orange Engagement Session

Ashley + Ryan – Old Towne Orange Engagement Session

It was a beautiful afternoon for Ashley and Ryan’s Old Towne Orange engagement session! The sun kept trying to hide from us – but we just chased it down! The sun ended up peaking out at all the right times. We had so much fun walking around this cute little area and found some great spots to shoot. Ashley and Ryan are such a great couple, you can tell they are absolutely smitten with each other. Ryan popped the question on a beautiful morning while they were vacationing in Hawaii – SO romantic!! July is going to come so fast and we can’t wait!

A little on the Personal side: Brody the Lab

A little on the Personal side: Brody the Lab

So we don’t normally post much personal information on here, but that needs to change. This is who we are, and we think you guys should deserve a little insight into our lives. Most of our time is spent on our business, it doesn’t seem like we’ve had anytime for anything else lately. We do have dogs and the dogs need to be unleashed every so often, they are actually our children. Since our lab pup just had some surgery she has not been able to get out to the park, but she spends a crazy amount of time with her brother Brody. He is in all the pictures below. It’s great to have such a great friend that got the counter part to our terror. She knows how exhausting it can be to have a puppy.

I decided to kill two birds with one stone today. I had a couple things on the to do list. I knew the pups needed to get out, they were driving us crazy. I also needed to test one of our lenses, it seems like we were having a little focusing trouble with it. So off to the beach it was, puppy and canon camera with 50mm lens in tow. Wow, did those dogs need to get out, they were like a jack in the box. Turn the handle and watch them pop out, except this was the minute their feet touched the sand it was over, let the craziness ensue.

So here is the result of the lens test below, seems to be doing ok for now. It needs more testing, maybe on a subject that doesn’t move as fast.
