  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to the blog! If the banner doesn't make it obvious enough I'll just spill the beans and let you know that we are a full time husband and wife wedding photography team. We love life, God, weddings, and if you slide over our names to the left you'll note a few other things we love.

    We are based out of Los Angeles, and when I say that, I mean our studio is right in the smack dab center of downtown. However, if you start browsing through the blog history you will soon note that we shoot weddings all over the country and world. We put a lot into making our images so I hope you enjoy checking some of them out!

    If you're up for having a great time at your wedding, and our photos have the look you are going for, then feel free to shoot us a note and we would love to chat some more!

Mrs. Johnny Appleseed {Stylized Bridal Shoot}

The sun shining through the trees, the chirp of the birds, the fresh crisp feel of a bright red apple in your hand, and the smell of the woods as the sun melts off the morning fog. All together it leaves you refreshed, invigorated, and infused with a new sense of adventure. As a kid my parents used to read me a Johnny Appleseed children’s book. We had lots of different books I loved, but there was always something about that one that left me inspired to take on the world. Appleseed braved the lone frontier out ahead of everyone else planting apple trees so they would be ready for the settlers to enjoy when they arrived. Talk about innovative ideas! Maybe Steve Jobs took notes?

Another little known fact is that Johnny Appleseed was in love with a girl in his younger years, he decided to marry her and traveled a great distance to propose to her. Sadly he arrived one day after she had already accepted someone else’s proposal. After that he never married. Part of the fun of this shoot was pretending there was a real Mrs. Appleseed who came after his lost love.

Enjoy the photos and THANK YOU SO MUCH everyone who helped with the shoot! See the credits at the bottom! They are all super talented people! Comments are welcome! =)
