A peak at what we have been doing lately.

Wedding of Mai & Sean

As fellow nerds, we were overjoyed when Mai and Sean asked us to be their wedding photographers!  They met at E3 back in 2009 and after years of friendship followed by long distance dating between Los Angeles and San Francisco, they finally move to begin their lives together in Orange County with their adorable dog Kratos (The Dog of War!).  These stylish and silly video game lovers are absolutely adorable together and are always down for photos, something that we definitely took advantage of.

Engagement of Alena & Matt

Alena and Matt met while volunteering together on a community committee in Ventura California.  Alena, being the incredibly sweet woman she is, went to give Matt a hug and then proclaimed, “Wow I could stay there forever!”  She says that their “good hug chemistry” started them on a path from friendship to dating. A month later, when they took an unplugged vacation together to relax in an adult tree house in the Redwoods, they fell in love.

Wedding of Alex & Brett

Beach weddings are a must when you decided to get married along the coast of Ventura County.  Alex and Brett may have said they were camera shy, but you’d never know it by how romantic they were together.

Engagement of Mai & Sean

Nothing is cuter than a couple who wants their dog front and center in their engagement photos. Kratos is Mai and Sean’s fur baby. They adopted this goofy poofball after they were finally able to move in together after years of friendship, a long distance relationship across Los Angeles and San Francisco, and finally moving in together in Orange County.  Named for their love of video games, Kratos doesn’t exactly personify the god of war but damn if he isn’t adorable. He rolled in the grass and climbed all over his parents as we strolled around a local Huntington Beach park or while they played video games in their modern So Cal living room.

Wedding of Chen & Shaf

No matter how dreary and rainy it is, when two of your best friends get married, there’s no way the day can be anything but beautiful.  Chen and Shaf spent the night before their wedding in the cutest little bed and breakfast in Northern California, The Inn San Francisco, which is a Victorian LGBTQ+ friendly hotel with tons of beautiful photo op locations.  After the squad got ready, complete with flower crowns from their talented fashion designer friend Andrea Schwartz, we moved on to the San Francisco Courthouse.
