“One of us is Minimalist, the other is maximalist- minimalism kept us focused on important things, and maximalism explains the loud design. The details we did have felt special and true to us.” – Alli Rock N Roll Bride Magazine featured this intimate Joshua Tree wedding in their September Issue.
At sunrise with Marissa, Travis and their kiddos to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. We shot their wedding in Maui, and oh the look Travis gave us the next morning when they woke up at sunrise to trash the dress! ( their favorite memory of their wedding- seriously!) Here they are in Maui! This little one was not really into the sunrise time on the call sheet. Worked out well for the cologne photoshoot (ad campaign Photoshop work by his […]
In Lieu of trash the dress, we celebrated with a dip lakeside. Kodak gold film, a minolta 35mm camera, and 2 oversize cactus. These two married in Joshua Tree intimately: parents only ( see photos here). Then celebrated via dance party Lakeside in the brides hometown in Michigan with family & friends. Bringing the cacti from Joshua Tree to the Lake. wedding Day!

Kodak vision 3 cinema film now available in 35mm film! After seeing Paul Tomas Anderson’s Licorice pizza shot on this, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Guppy as rocking the My Little Pony Look. More fun from this Backyard bash intimate Wedding In Joshua Tree Ca. Since this was New Years Day, The park does not allow permits on Holidays ( Plus over an hour wait to get in) we headed to a location 5 minutes away from the house, littered with Joshua Trees and a pink sky.
The inspo for Guppy’s look: My little Pony. Afterparty included a wardrobe change for the bride: purple plush robe, and comfy crocs. Film in the desert, this intimate elopement, with only parents in attendance, full of color, and disco balls, and a dog named guppy.
Surrounded by the magnificent Red Rock Country of Sedona, what a backdrop to exchange vows, rings and a kiss. With 20 guests, this outdoor intimate wedding was a blast to photograph. Polaroid Magic!!! View the Awesome day after shoot here.
I love taking our time to explore and push the bounds of wedding photography the morning after the wedding. Telling stories of the night before, and letting our hair down to Rev It Up! ( Plus I got to use my Flying Hasselblad Camera!) This couple should be on the cover of the REI catalogue- their weekends are spent hiking, climbing and in nature. We started off on the creek next to the wedding at Orchard Canyon,( wedding venue) […]
Final shot of the night, I love a Bride in fringe.
Located on the Central Coast of California, Las Casitas wedding venue : beautiful views, and breeze, fantastic outdoor venue. Taking advantage of the clear skies and flew the drone for the Romantic portraits and overall shot of the venue at night.
