Floral Poetry

This shoot was inspired by the character Ophelia from the Shakespearean Play "Hamlet". We want to encourage and inspire the ethereal feel that exudes from a bride on her wedding day. We felt This quote from The Lumineer's song "Ophelia" fit the inspiration: "oh ophelia you've been on my mind girl since the flood, OH OPHELIA heaven help a fool who falls in love".

Special thanks to Poppy Hill Flowers for the beautiful bouquet, anklet and floral crown and Myranda Gibson for being such such a super model. 

We hope you enjoy! 

Adventurous Iceland Couple's Session: Rebecca & Reza

There's just something about Iceland. We can't put our finger on it but there is a whimsical and magical vibe there that is unlike anything else in this world. 

We thought the Baltic Pillars in Vik would be a solid place to start our session with Rebecca and Reza. The second we started walking towards the pillars the clouds rushed in and it started pouring rain. The four of us looked at each other and all had the same look on our faces that said..."Who cares! Let's do this"! Almost the second we started shooting, the clouds opened and the rain gave up. We couldn't believe it. 

Rebecca and Reza are the quintessential couple for adventure and down right silliness. We could barely keep up with them on the black sand beach. They were full of fun and laughter and we truly believe that if we hadn't been there, they would have been acting the exact same way. They have a kind of love that you just want to be around and soak in. Even the sun came out to be a part of it and gave all of us a gorgeous sunset. 

LA Boudoir: A year of Beauty

We absolutely love the opportunity to celebrate the beauty of our clients. Boudoir Photography is such an empowering form of photography for us. The entire process really allows us to connect with our clients on such a personal level and the results are always so rewarding. 

Below are some of our awesome clients who were not only brave enough to get vulnerable and allows us to capture them BUT they were also willing to let us share a few of their photos as to encourage and inspire other women to try it out. 

If you are interested in shooting with us please shoot us a message and we can let you know if we have any upcoming boudoir days set up! <3 

Arts District Wedding: Zach & Julia

Capturing a wedding is always a joy, but it's a bonus when the bride and groom are as artistic and eclectic as Julia and Zach. Here's a couple who kicked off their big day by strutting the downtown streets of LA and were totally cool with a giant wall of graffiti being the backdrop for their "first look".  

From the unique location choice of Werkartz Art Gallery to Julia walking through the crowd of friends and family towards her groom as they gathered closely around to watch them say "I do", each and every detail felt personal and intimate. Moreover, the day felt handcrafted by the couple.  

But it didn't stop with the venue and the hand-made dreamcatchers hanging overhead. Julia's personal style was reflected in the Mara Hoffman dress she wore, accented by Julia's personal line of Jewelry and DIY bouquet. 

What amazes us is that this day wasn't out of the ordinary. Check out their engagement dinner (featured on Green Wedding Shoes ) here to get another look at their truly individual style.

Here are some of our favorite moments from their amazing day! Enjoy!

A special thanks to the awesome vendors who brought this day to life!

Riegel Family: A day in the life

There is nothing better than when we get to spend some quality time with an adorable family like the Riegels. This session was filled with laughter, play and silliness. We started at their home and spent most of our time in the incredible garden that Quyen had so impressively grown. It was full of color, vibrance and personal touches. After hanging out barefoot in the garden, we all went across the street to their "go to" park and played until the sun went down. 

It was hard to choose, but here are some of our favorites from the shoot. 

Jonna & Lee: Intimate Home Session

With the holidays right around the corner this cozy in home session felt appropriate. We can't even begin to express how much we love getting to peek inside the lives of such wonderful people. It's such a special part of our job to see couples at their most personal and intimate moments. Here are some of our favorites from our time with Jonna, Lee and Remy. <3 

Enjoy! 

The 1909 Topanga Canyon Wedding: Max & Drew

On a beautiful, sunny day in Topanga Canyon at The 1909, with their closest friends and family looking on, Max & Drew were married. The couple's love of music and community was so pervasive in not only the aesthetic but in the vibe of the day. They wanted the day to feel like Cochella, with friends laughing and singing along to their favorite songs we feel like they succeeded. 

The entire day was filled with music, love and laughter. Their ceremony was heartfelt, and the speeches hilarious. During our "alone time" with the couple, we were able to see that Max & Drew had the right attitude about their wedding day. We saw the importance they placed on how everything feels, rather than worrying about making sure they had the perfect "this" or "that". Don't get us wrong, you could tell every detail was lovingly and carefully chosen. 

Here are some of our favorites moments from their day. We hope you enjoy! <3

A huge thanks to all the vendors who made this day possible!

DTLA Engagement: Lilly & Alex

We can't even explain how adorable and fun Lilly & Alex are together. They loved the idea of walking around and shooting in the city so we figured the Arts District in DTLA was a perfect choice! 

Downtown LA is filled with such vibrance and personality. We feel that was perfectly matched with Lilly & Alex's enthusiasm to let loose and get some fun shots! They were more than willing to run across the infamous 4th st bridge (and look effortless as they do it by the way) and dance their hearts out in random alleys. 

We cannot wait for their Ebell Club Long Beach wedding next June! Any couple who is willing to dance, run and have fun is our kinda couple! We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from their session! <3 

Rose+Billy

Rose & Billy were married amidst the beautiful scenery at Hummingbird Nest Ranch. Their ceremony overlooked hills of stone and their outdoor reception was filled with plenty of gorgeous views and sunlight to be enjoyed by their guests. They had an amazing food truck dinner and even some late night In n Out for guest to enjoy as the night wrapped up. Rose and Billy were the kind of couple who were down for anything. They even climbed up onto some rocks for some shots during the very last light of the day. Such a romantic wedding. Enjoy!
