Kelly and Andrew’s Sunny Unique Session (by Scott & Breanna)

It was the day after Kelly and Andrew’s wedding and we were all getting amped up for another photo session!

0010

That’s right! We (Scott & Breanna) were taking even more photos the day after their wedding! Why would we do that you ask? Well there are many reasons…

1. Kelly and Andrew get a chance to have two locations for their wedding photos! So instead of just having a vineyard wedding, Kelly and Andrew got to have a vineyard/cliffs/field/ beach wedding!!! It’s the best of all worlds!

2. We have the time freedom to let the photos take us to where they need to. Needless to say, we’re on a pretty tight schedule on the day of the wedding, so going out the day after allows us to have a chance to give Kelly and Andrew’s photos the time they deserve to get them JUST right!

3. We have a second chance for good weather if it happens to be raining on the wedding day! Actually, this time we were a little worried about it being rainy the day after the wedding . Luckily, it turned out that we (Scott and Breanna) were just looking at the wrong location on the weather app (phew!). The actual Laguna we were going to that day had the kind of clear skies and bright sunshine that Kelly and Andrew really wanted!

4. Our hands are untied! All of the constraints that go hand in hand with a wedding day are gone and we are freed up to shine and to get the “wedding day” photos that are typically our couples very favorites!!!

So Kelly and Andrew, thank you for giving us the opportunity to do our very best possible for you and for being so great in planning the perfect Unique Session.

You did a great job coming up with the props, location, and all! You really put the effort in to make it great and I think it was well worth it! Congrats again! We can’t wait to see what great things you do together in the future!

Nicole’s Family Maternity Session (by Josh & Kelley)

We (Josh and Kelley) had the pleasure of meeting Nicole during a wedding we photographed last October.

Then, about a month ago, Nicole contacted us about doing a maternity session.


For this second bundle of joy (her and her husband already have one adorable little girl), she wanted her maternity session to be a family ordeal.


We LOVED this idea!


It’s such a sweet way to show where they are as a whole family at this moment in time.


They already have the one of the most adorable (and well-behaved) three-year-olds we’ve EVER met!


So that new addition is going to have some serious competition when it comes to claiming the title of cutest family member. We have a feeling they’re going to tie for first.


Congratulations on the amazing family that you already have Nicole. We’re so excited that it will be growing into an even more epically awesome family in the near future!

Riley’s Uber Cool Senior Session (by Scott & Breanna)

If you were to go into my (Breanna’s) head when I was a 6 year old little girl, dreaming of being super cool teenager, you would see that I was pretty much picturing myself being as cool as Riley.

00120061

Because she’s pretty much the coolest thing ever.

004900680063

You know, there she is, just being her normal awesome self as she rides down her penny board alongside the San Clemente pier. See, now you wish you were as awesome as her too, right?!

0041

More than just being really, really… OK REALLY cool, she also happens to be beautiful, adorable, and all other things that help make your pictures turn out great!

0007

(You can’t help but being adorable if you’re a person who loves giraffes as much as she does!)

0058

So while I’d like to say these pics are great because we’re such incredible photographers, I’m sure we’d be overstating our role in it!

00100066

Oh and since I’ve gone on and on about her impeccable style and eye catching looks, let me stray away from the surfacy stuff and let you know that she also is an amazing person as a whole!

00300071

Just in the time we spent with her that day, we could immediately tell that she’s the kind of girl you want to be around. She was so fun and great to talk to in between her bike rides and skateboarding tricks (well, OK maybe not “tricks” per say!)!

00370042

Not to mention, she has some mad soccer skills and is headed off to college with a scholarship to prove it!

001900200034

Riley, we had a lot of fun working with you and we wish you good luck in all you do. Plus, we hope you really kill it on the soccer field in college. Congrats and good luck!

Kelly and Andrew’s Fun Vineyard Wedding (by Scott & Breanna)

A gorgeous vineyard wedding set in beautiful southern California with perfect sunshine, hills all around you, and with the people you love laughing and enjoying life together. It sounds like a dream doesn’t it?

00440035

I would think so too, had I not been there to experience Andrew and Kelly’s wedding and learn that dreams can come true… and do!

00320006

Just look at the amazing setting Andrew and Kelly chose for their wedding, it’s perfect!

00420012

Not to mention, there were so many little nooks and crannies around Orfila Vineyards and Winery that we were able to get some super unique looking shots as well!

00340013

And when I say their friends and family were really enjoying Kelly and Andrew’s wedding, it would be an understatement. Because this wedding was an amazing event to be a part of!

I think it was more than just the great party that Kelly and Andrew threw that made their guests giddy, it was also them getting the chance to watch two people who they love and care about commit to spending the rest of their lives together.

002200250014

It was definitely an occasion to celebrate!

00020039

I mean, just look at these two! You don’t even have to be a close family member or friend to see that they are completely and madly in love!

00400046

So Kelly and Andrew, congrats on not just planning a beautiful wedding with a fantastic party, but on finding someone you are so obviously meant to be with!

003800430049

We couldn’t be happier for you both! Congratulations!

Lem and Theresa, a Couple Who Knows How to ROCK an Engagement Session (by Josh & Kelley)

Engagement sessions typically start like this:

Couple in front of the camera – “We’re not very photogenic… In fact, we’re SUPER awkward in photos.”

Josh and Kelley – “No way, you guys are going to be naturals! Just you wait and see.”

Lem and Theresa’s session started off with a somewhat similar conversation.


And, just like most couples, with a few clicks of the camera shutter, you could see the fear and nervousness start to melt away.


Seriously, look at them! They really ARE naturals!


When you look at these photos, you don’t see fear and hesitation, you see smiles, laughs, kisses, hugs, and a couple that’s in LOVE!


While we know Lem and Theresa were a bit nervous about their pre-wedding session at first, Josh and I are SO incredibly glad that they decided to give it a go.


Not only did it all work out, it worked out wonderfully, and these two look like rockstars! Lovestruck rockstars!


And now, today (yes… TODAY!), as Lem and Theresa walk down the aisle, photography can be one of the last things on their minds. Why? Because they’ve done this whole photo-shoot thing before, and, like I said, they’re NATURALS.


They can trust in the fact that we’ve got the photos covered, and they need only to be in the moment, and enjoy the awesome celebration that they’ve planned.


We can’t WAIT to be a part of your incredible wedding today Lem and Theresa! We know, that just like the two of you, it’s going to ROCK!
