    - Marianne + Joe


It was so much fun meeting Jill + Scott in person for their engagement session! They are such a genuine couple and the type of people who are just easy to hang out with. We had a ton of fun splashing around (ok, well…Joe took the brunt of the splashing and we are kicking ourselves for not taking a photo of him haha) and enjoying the surprisingly warm water on the beaches of Malibu. We can’t wait to see them at the end of this month for their wedding day!

Enjoy a peek at photos from their engagement session!

Lauren and Ian’s Gerry Ranch wedding was perfection. You know how we are pretty much obsessed with dogs? They had an adorable one named Mei Mei. You know how we love lace dresses? Check out Lauren’s dress! It was so elegant and classy that we immediately smelled rich mahogany and felt compelled to read leather bound books when we saw it. Don’t even get us started on Lauren’s hair! But, by far the best part of the wedding was that Lauren and Ian are such a sweet and loving couple. We couldn’t help but have a great time photographing them!

Warning: there are LOTS of photos ahead. How are we supposed to narrow down such a gorgeous wedding with a gorgeous couple and gorgeous details (I mean, check out their malibu engagement session if you haven’t already)? It just isn’t fair.

We absolutely loved working with Jooyoung + Frank. Not only are they so sweet, they are good friends with another amazing couple we photographed a few years back and totally love as well. It’s always fun for us to get to see past couples at weddings (and recognize other friends/family and bridal party members too!).

We are thrilled we were able to head out to Del Mar and photograph their wedding at the gorgeous Inn at Rancho Santa Fe and work with some of the most talented vendors ever.

Lots of laughs, kisses, and happy tears ahead…check it out.

We have shot 250+ weddings together and there isn’t much that makes us nervous at this point.

We have shot celebrity weddings. No big deal. We were totally calm.

We have shot the weddings of our closest friends and family members. We were cool as cucumbers.

We have shot at venues that make other photographers want to cry. We eat challenging venues for breakfast.

But, for this wedding we were as nervous as we could possibly be. This was because the bride’s father is Joe’s dentist and there is just a whole new level of pressure added when you know that the father of the bride is going to be in control of sharp tools that are in your mouth.

We are 100% kidding, of course. Alli + Adam are super sweet and Alli’s Dad is a super nice guy, so we weren’t actually any more nervous for this wedding than any other. There was no reason for us to be nervous. Alli + Adam are awesome. Their families are as nice as can be. North Ranch Country Club is great. It was pretty much the perfect recipe for a great day! :) Be sure to check out their rad wedding video by Amari Productions as well (linked at the end of the post).
