It's amazing how life can bring you unexpected surprises. For Betsy and Brett, that was the case. They first met each other at a friends wedding and years later ended up at their own wedding together. When the timing is right, everything in the world will align to make sure you find your soul mate.

Both Betsy and Brett are not only successful and caring but they are one of our closest friends. We are so happy that you found each other. Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding and special day!

Congratulations to the beautiful couple, Betsy and Brett!
MARIEL & ORMAN // Wedding Highlight

Pasadena, CA

Who would have thought that a sip of coffee and Korean class could be the beginning of a lifetime of happiness? That day we felt the love of Mariel and Orman surrounded by their family and friends from their heart-warming "first look" to their moving "I do’s" to an unforgettable night of Gangnam-style dancing. We were honored to be part of their special day and capture every laugh, every tear, every hug, every kiss, and every heart felt moment. It’s not so often we meet a certain person you can connect with and when you do, you’ll know for sure just like Orman that you are "the luckiest".

We would like to send a very big and special thank you to the bride and groom who were such a great and easy couple to work with. You both have been an irreplaceable part of this entire experience and we will cherish it forever. Thanks for letting us share your special day with you.

Cheers to Mariel & Orman on their wedding day. And welcome to their love story.
JEN & ERWIN // Bula!
August 21, 2012 Bula!

For anyone who's done it will tell you, lugging around multiple cameras while on vacation is definitely not the easiest thing to do. Just take a look at a couple of my lenses or my now-squeaky-from-the-sand monopod. And sure, most of the time we knew the cameras were rolling, but frankly we've gotten quite used to it. Whether we're in San Diego, Las Vegas, or Japan, it's just fun like that. In the end, when you get to sit down at home and finally watch all of your hard work and relive nearly each and every moment, you realize just how priceless capturing those moments are. Immortalized. Forever. For all of family, friends, future children, and future children's children to see. To relive those fleeting moments over and over. Moments that happen in a blink of an eye, but eventually can change a person's life forever. In the end, it was totally worth it and I am glad I pulled it off. But most importantly, I'm glad she said "yes"!

Here is to my one and only love, my fiancee, during what some will call only the beginning of a life-long journey together. And an unforgettable vacation with memories that will last us both a lifetime. Sunsets. Candle-lit dinners on the beach. Helmet cams and caterpillars. Who could ask for anything more?

"I'll always be the one to hold your hand, babe." ;) I love you.
ARLENE & DAN // Wedding Highlight
November 11, 2011 Venue: Pines Park
Dana Point, CA

It was indeed destiny which brought Arlene and Dan together on 11/11/11, a day symbolizing good fortune. 

Arlene and Dan are sweet, fun, and easy going.  Shooting their prewedding b-roll felt like a day of hanging out with friends instead of a project. It was fun capturing them in their true element with surf, sand, and bikes. We were also touched with their heartfelt and emotional wedding vows which left a lump in our throat. 

Thank you for allowing us to capture your true emotions. Congratulations to the Atwells! 
JASMIN & DAN // Wedding Highlight

Mission Viejo, CA

When the timing is right, falling in love happens when we least expect it whether it be at work or a day out with the girls. For Jasmin and Dan, it took a wink, a drink, and a smile at a local beach bar to bring this special couple together. Not only is this couple both good looking on the outside but they match on the inside with their funny sense of humor, laid back style, and kind heart. Its awesome to see two people genuinely in love and always having fun and laughing together. Thank you for not only being one of our closest friends but trusting us to capture your special day and be a part of your wedding.
