    - Marianne + Joe


Here we are! We have been working away on our new branding (launching soon!) as The Sanadas. Since we are a husband and wife wedding photography team we wanted to make our brand reflect that a bit better. You may have also noticed our main website had a little facelift in the meantime. We are hoping you are enjoying the changes we have made so far.

We also still have some dates open for 2018 so be sure to contact us soon if you are looking for a photography team for your day in 2018.  2019 dates are now open (can you believe it!?) for you lovely couples wanting to get your wedding photography booked early too.

On to the engagement photos! We are so excited for our 2018 weddings because we have a ton of awesome and amazing couples like Katrina + Jake. Yeah they are super adorable, but they are also so fun to work with. They are sweet and super laid back. For their engagement session we chose a location where they had one of their first dates (how perfect is that?). Vasquez Rocks in Santa Clarita. We had a blast exploring this spot with these three (can’t forget their super awesome dog Ginger!) and are loving the images from their engagement session.

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.
