Photographing and documenting our client's lives is our passion. 

We take moments in time and create stories. 

Why do we Shoot weddings?

We love wedding days!  The moments, the details, the I love yous!  We are hopeless romantics.  When we look back at the couples we have photographed and relive their weddings it makes us feel happy and all warm in our hearts! We have been blessed to shoot over 400 weddings and to be there for that special time in their lives. We would feel honored for you to choose us! 

Why Choose us?

lst of all we have over 16 years experience behind us.  We have shot all types of weddings including winery & vineyard weddings, beach, destination, private home ceremonies, hotels, mansions, and golf courses just to name a few.   We have photographed over 400 weddings and events.   In 2014 we were awarded one of the best wedding  photographers in Northern California from the Knot. We were actually an editors pick!   We only have two photographers available Laurie Ann and Richard.  You will get to know us before your day!  We started back in film days so we know lighting.  We currently shoot digital but if you prefer us to shoot your wedding with film we do have a film package.  We bring backups and extra equipment to every wedding.  Since we are a small boutique studio we only shoot one wedding per day. 

What is our style?  Romantic, storytelling, with a  fashion flair, soft direction photo shoots to create art pieces to place on your wall to remember your special day!

 Portrait shoots below will be documented by Laurie Ann.

Seniors   

I love shooting seniors!  They are at that special time in their life considered a crossroads.  Emotions are high and the future is near.  I want the senior to be comfortable and have fun and just be themselves. I ask  them to bring along items that tell a story of who they are and what makes them unique!  By this we mean sports stuff, dance, band, cheer, a car they worked on with their father for senior project anything that makes it personal.

Family portraits & children   I want the session to be relaxed and fun!    We'd rather document what is typically happening and only direct for a bit and try to capture the essence of a  time in your lives that goes by so quickly.  We also have a day in your life family shoot that is a  full day shoot where we come to you in your natural setting and capture you with your family doing things you normally do.  If you have hobbies or special things you do together we could plan them to be a part of the shoot too!  In the end I create a nice keepsake book for you to remember that special time in your life!

Furry Friends shoots are treated  like family portraits.  Our furry friends are part of our family.  Being a pet owner of 3 dogs, 3 cats and 2 horses I understand pets and their personalities!  During these shoots we take a little time to get to know the pet and make them feel like we are just a friend stopping by!  We try to get everyone to relax and just have fun!

Newborn shoots are a very intimate time.  I can come to your home or you can come to my studio.  I leave that up to you.  I will try to schedule the photo shoot during a  time when baby is happiest and should be done within 3-4 weeks of the baby's birth.  We do have a package available for pregnancy, birth or lst Dr. visit, and newborn shoot which includes a beautiful keepsake book of your new baby's story.
