There’s something special about teachers. This session was a treat, an end-of the-year reward for herself. Thank you Briana for your service to our children, and to all the teachers out there. Happy Summer!
There’s something special about teachers. Meeting Briana for the first time, I automatically knew she had a heart of gold. You could just feel it, pure and simple. Moving to Monterey to beat the heat of Bakersfield, with the dream of teaching elementary school, never imaged she would end up with…

Vanessa, a photographer herself, and her husband Collin were traveling from Oklahoma, to vacation in sunny California. While here, wanted to have their portraits taken. When the day finally arrived for their portraits, it wasn’t the typical sunny California day. It was a bit overcast. The type of day you would like to snuggle under a blanket with a good book and hot coco. That didn’t stop us from having one of the most fun photo sessions to date!
A few months ago I received an email from Vanessa, a photographer herself. Vanessa and her husband Collin were traveling from Oklahoma, to vacation in sunny California, and while here, wanted to have their portraits taken. Finding me from a random Google search, we hit it off instantly. The…

She said YES!!! See how this proposal story unfolded and it may have included us learning to use hand signals like crazy people.
Nothing makes my heart smile more than man pledging his love by getting down on one knee. Matt emailed me with his plans to propose to his girlfriend Stacey. He drove down from San Francisco, and spending all morning searching the Big Sur coast for the “perfect” spot. That afternoon we met for…

With family and friends, I could go buy them something off their registry, but a little maternity shoot was way more fun! Michael and Cassandra are expecting their second baby, a little girl. This time next year we have the honor of shooting their wedding too! Beyond excited!
A few years ago, when our business really took off, we were shooting just about anything we could; family, children, maternity, couples, etc. We just loved photography, period. This was when we were “finding ourselves”. I wouldn’t go back or change a thing, because during this time, we found…

This quaint Carmel beach-side nuptials couldn’t have been more perfect!
On one of the warmest days Carmel had seen in years, Gretchen and Jeret invited their closest family and friends to celebrate their destination wedding. After anxiety it would rain, the day could not have been more perfect. Their dream of beachside nuptials, with the sound of crashing waves, and…
