Jamie + Chris Married | Oakland, CA

We got to have dinner with Jamie and Chris a couple nights before their wedding day, and pretty much couldn’t wait for the big day to come. We had been talking for a long time via email and it felt so good to finally be with them in the place they call home and share a pizza together. We had such a strong connection before we ever got them in front of our camera, and that always makes us love our job that much more. Their wedding day was so colorful, light-hearted, and fun–the photos really speak for themselves with this one. Jamie and Chris are both graphic designers, and that kind of explains the amazing wedding stationery, design, and strong color scheme throughout the event. If Jamie and Chris ever throw a party again, we’re going to figure out a way to photograph it (or get on the guest list).

Amy + Tony Engaged | Deception Pass, WA

Amy and Tony are made for the outdoors. So when they asked to take their engagement photos at Deception Pass, it made sense. We got lucky for 2 reasons… 1.) the fog hung around all day and made for some killer photos, and 2.) Amy and Tony were completely fearless, climbing on rocks, sitting on cliffs, and making our job so easy.
