  • 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!

Models for Hunger Games Wedding!

I walked across the grass barefoot, holding my wedding dress up in one hand, and a bow in the other. The sun was warm on my back, and as I glanced through the trees, I almost felt like I was ready to shoot something. Except that I was the one in a wedding dress. I was the one looking at two cameras shooting me. My handsome man looked down at me adoringly, holding me tight. I stood on tiptoes, giving him a little kiss on the cheek. Today was the day. The day that Katniss married Peeta.

This fabulous shoot was dreamt up by  Meghan Christine Photography and Whitney McGillicuddy, and Lukas and I were SOO excited to be Katniss and Peeta for a day! We had read all three of the Hunger Games before we modeled for the shoot, which made it SO much more fun, actually knowing the characters, and details of their story. From the arrow-bouquet, to the hand crafted cake and paper details, we just love this shoot and all the fabulous talent involved in putting it together! This shoot was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes, the Huffington Post, and with Ryan Seacrest!

If you’re a fan of the books, what is  your favorite detail from the shoot?
