This entire day was an absolute dream! Daniel and Brooke brought over 100 of their closest friends in from New Jersey, to marry in the warmth of California’s Carmel Valley. Gardener Ranch definitely surpassed all our expectations and made it to the top of our favorite venue EVER list! Don't miss this STUNNING wedding!

They flew in from Boston, Colette had no idea that during their stay, Sam had plans to propose in the stunning rose garden of Bernardus Lodge & Spa. Nestled deep in the valley vineyards, tucked just along the hill sides, Sam got down on one knee and the rest is history. It pure perfection!

The first photo. It was a selfie taken with disposable camera. To us, this is day one. We were so young, and had no idea what the future held, but what was certain, we wanted to always be together. Before marriage and babies, before being business owners, and real responsibility, all we had was love.

The greens of Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Courses seemed to go on forever, and you could see the sun rays shining through the high clouds like spotlights, along the ocean view of Monterey Bay. Making quit an entrance landing via helicopter, that just the beginning of one amazing day!
We met Erin and Michael back in 2014 when we booked their wedding. 2014! They were our longest engaged couple we've ever had, which made it even that more special to celebrate with them on their wedding day! Erin got ready in her parents home, along a quaint tree lined storybook neighborhood.…

It’s become our most requested portrait location, people come from all around the world to see it, we too have an obsession with Big Sur. We had the opportunity to capture this GORGEOUS session last week, right before the wild fires began. We share our heart about this stunning coastline on the blog today.

Checked another HUGE goal off our dream list! We spoke at The Inspired Story conference last week in Dallas, and taught a wedding couple posing course! We were able to lead over a dozen ladies through a few hours of authentic posing, and how we are able to get natural, genuine images, Even though it was 104 degrees, with Rachel and I being the only one dressed in cardigans (remember in California you dress in layers!), we powered thought it, loving every single second! Here's a peek into our afternoon...

Social Media and Snapchat was last nights topic at our ‪#‎TuesdaysTogether‬ gathering at the gorgeous Cowgirl Winery in Carmel Valley. To kick off Back-to-School season, our group partnered up local charities, and held a school supply drive. It didn’t surprise us that our group opened their hearts and donated ten folds of what we were expecting. We cannot wait to see the look on the children's faces!

It’s not every week we get to do senior portraits, but every time we finish a senior portrait session, it reminds how much we love them! The gorgeous Hayden, far from her Texas home, decided to take her senior portraits in the stunning valley of Carmel. It's by far one of our favorite senior session to date! Just take a peek at her senior session, and you'll see there's something about those southern girls!

When the groom surprised his beautiful bride by learning the guitar, so he could serenade her on their wedding day. Oh my goodness, not a dry eye between us! A gorgeous new Mission Ranch wedding on the blog today!
The moment we met Paige and Brian, we instantly had a connection! You may remember them from their dreamy engagement session last year where they arrived dressed to the nines. We couldn't have been more excited when they told us they were planning an elaborate Carmel Mission Ranch Wedding. From the…
