Whether it's an elopement for two, pre-wedding for 25, a traditional wedding for 500 or a non-traditional wedding for your whole extended family, we understand that every wedding is unique in its own way.
By being your documentary wedding photographer, we hope to learn and know exactly how you want your day to be. We want to know what you value. We want to capture what's important to you. Our job is to take the pressure away and do what we can to make sure our couples can breathe, relax, and enjoy their day.
We are ready for all types of weddings. Whether your wedding is at the beach, in the mountains, in your backyard, or simply at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall, as your wedding photographer, we are here for you.
We love and truly enjoy engagement sessions, it might even be our favorite session to do! It's a day for the couple and the photographer to just have fun with no pressure of making it a 'perfect' day.
We believe the best photos are when our clients are relaxed, and they're just enjoying themselves -- that's our secret to capturing their genuine love and personality. Posing is minimal with us because those tend to produce stiff pictures.
We believe in creating lively, natural, raw photos for you. That's why engagement sessions are important and fun!
During this time, our client gets to share their love story with us, and we get to learn what's important to them. As the wedding photographer, we get to share our photography style with our clients before we move to the big wedding day. It's a perfect opportunity for the couple and photographer to get to know each other.
Many parents want their child's photos to be perfect and to only show their prettiest, well-behaved side. Therefore, during a family session, they often pose them to make sure the picture looks 'perfect.'
When photographing young children, we understand that many don't like to be restricted. They want to sleep when they're tired, eat when hungry, and play when they want. Pictures are taken to save memories, so shouldn't we capture and show their real, unique personality? As documentary-style family photographers, we aim to stay inspired to capture these innocent moments.
If they usually eat really messy with sauce all over their faces, that's the memory we want to capture. If they're sneaking into the bathroom while you're not looking so they can pull the toilet paper, perfect! These children are explorers, and capturing these moments would be most memorable. By being authentic family photographers, we're able to capture what we call a 'perfect picture.'
Looking back at these photographs years from now on, we as parents will be happy we have photos of our children being their crazy, messy, loving self.
