Jenn and Scott chose the perfect day in July to get married. Sure, it was warm, but the weather and setting were about as beautiful as you can find on a summer day in Northern California. To be honest, the golden hour shots were among our favorites ever. We had a ton of fun with the Huang’s and hope many beautiful summer days are in their future.

When she was little, Elaina used to sing “Someday My Prince Will Come” and on July 2, 2017 the bride married her prince, Cole. The setting was beautiful and the couple was about as in love as two people could be. Also, venues don’t get much more spectacular than Chateau St. Jean. Seriously, it’s pretty spectacular.

Things we love: live music, good food, love and of course…Jordan and Julie. Those names just sorta go together huh? Turns out, the people fit together as well. We had an amazing time with the Boehler’s at the beautiful Campovida winery in Hopland, CA. It doesn’t get much better than a wine country wedding in the summer.

“You are the Starbuck to my Adama and the Sarah Koenig to my Ira Glass.” These were perhaps the most romantic things I have ever heard. For those who aren’t so inclined, that’s geek talk for “I love you” and it definitely resonated with us. Ian and Pam were made for each other and we were so lucky to help tell their story. After you finish watching their wedding video, you should go read the “Red Rising” series. It comes highly recommended from the lovely couple (us too!).

Loy said there are two things he has always wanted to do: have a drone follow him will he drives his boat super fast, get married, and have a baby. On a warm June Saturday in Lakeport, Loy accomplished two of those goals (hint: no baby…yet). Marissa and Loy are the type of couple who exude adventure, fun, and most of all, love. We had an amazing time helping capture their story and are confident these 2 will be amazing parents once goal three is accomplished.

Katie knew what she wanted her wedding dress to look like, from as far back as she can remember. The dress, and everything else about her may wedding to Scott, was pulled straight from her childhood storybook. She played the role of princess and Scott, her prince. The Garvey wedding was filled with joy, from the first look to the couple’s sparkler exit. We couldn’t have asked for a better story to help tell.

Iceland Videography


My wife and I spent a week in Iceland in the beginning of April. Needless to say, it was magical. It was perfect combination of outdoor adventure and indoor luxury (we stayed at some pretty radical hotels). The food was wonderful, the people were kind and the landscape was from another world. We cannot wait to go back.

If you want to get married in Iceland, we will film it. Pretty please.

Hope you enjoy the little travel vlog we made.


When Kaiwan and Reena described their wedding to us, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. The blending of Persian and Indian customs and traditions provided the backdrop for a beautiful ceremony and an amazing overall day. The Chears are a fun loving couple and we really could have spent multiple days with them. They are the best.

They say you should always save the best for last and, considering the Herron’s celebration was our final wedding of the year, we definitely finished 2016 on a high note. Chris and Clarissa’s beautiful fall Casa Real wedding was the perfect way to complete our wedding season. We had an amazing time with the Herron’s and we couldn’t have picked a better couple for our 30th, and final, wedding of 2016.

When things don’t go as planned, there are a couple ways you can respond: You can freak out and act like the sky is falling or you can look at the cup as being half full and make the best of what you have. Well, Troy and Allie’s wedding didn’t necessarily go as they expected. They found out at 2:15pm, via email, that their priest would not be able to officiate their ceremony. Luckily, an hour later, a priest (aka the hero, Father Tom) offered to conduct the ceremony and the Channings lived happily ever after. We love fall weddings and Troy and Allie’s laid back November wedding was a dream.
