This blog post is a double whammy of fun because it comes with a game! Read on to find out more… (BAM! Foreshadowing like a champ!)

Now, we know what you are thinking: “Marianne and Joe, you are always talking about how your couples are awesome. I’ll bet you are going to talk about how Lisa + Bobby are really great too. But, are Lisa and Bobby really as radfantasticalness as you are saying?” To which we reply: “Ohhhhh, ye of little faith! Lisa + Bobby and our other couples ARE the epitome of radness.” We support our statement thusly:

Lisa + Bobby are equal parts sweet, adorable, fun, and hilarious and their wedding fit them perfectly. For sweetness, you need look no further than when Lisa walked down the aisle with her dad. Just before they walked down the aisle, you could see the gravity of the moment hit both Lisa and her dad. It was touching. Then, they hugged… no… hugged is the wrong word. Lisa and her dad embraced each other at the end of the aisle as her dad gave her away to Bobby… so, so, SO sweet.

We could point to just about any part of Lisa and Bobby’s wedding for adoreableness and fun, but our favorite thing would have to be the unity pizza ceremony. Yes, you read that right, the unity pizza ceremony. Lisa + Bobby love pizza and it was their first meal after Bobby proposed, so instead of doing a sand ceremony or candles, Lisa and Bobby decided to share some pizza (with toppings representing Lisa on one half and toppings representing Bobby on the other half) as their symbol of unity. A-dore-able.

Now for the game! To illustrate the hilarious aspect of Lisa + Bobby’s wedding, see if you can spot the three photos where someone (not us) unexpectedly and accidentally dropped an f-bomb in what was probably the most hilarious moment of our wedding season. :)

Today is Josie + Daniel’s wedding day! So, we thought that it is only appropriate that we should put their engagement shoot up on the blog!

Here’s just a few more exclamation points for good measure: !!!!! :)

We absolutely love shooting weddings for friends of our past couples! As we have grown each year we get to photograph weddings where we know the guests and/or bridal party more and more and it is SO freaking cool! So, we were super excited when Donna + Josh told us they found us through a past couple (Frances + Mike) and wanted us to be a part of their wedding day too! We had a good time working out all the details for their natural, glamorous, quirky, and epic engagement session and it was really fun exploring Los Angeles with these two. I mean there were floaties, surfboards, tromping through nature, cityscapes and glitter! How could we not have a great time!? :)

Welcome to the third installment in our series of scholastic articles about our neighbors to the North which we have lovingly titled: Canadian Couples and their Crazy Awesome Canuckery.

Allow us to bring you up to speed on the history of our extensive scientific research: We don’t remember exactly how it happened, but somehow a super awesome couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (which, by the way, is SUPER fun to say so we would highly recommend looking for creative ways to fit that into your everyday vocabulary. You’re welcome.) found our work and decided to book us to shoot their Palm Springs wedding a few years ago. Since then, we have been booked by two other couples from Saskatoon to shoot their Palm Springs weddings.

In our last installment we discussed how our experience with Danya + Trevor unequivocally proved that the stereotype that Canadians are super nice is absolutely true. After further study of Tanya + Brett’s Palm Springs wedding a full year later, we are proud to report that our conclusion remains true. Our Canadian couples and all of their friends/family and other guests are some of the nicest people we have ever met and we genuinely believe that the only conclusion to be drawn is that Saskatoon is filled to the brim with the nicest people on the planet.

To summarize our findings, we had a great time shooting with Tanya + Brett and their friends/family at their small Palm Springs Wedding… and now we kind of want to live in Saskatoon. :)
