It’s an incredible honor when friends call upon us to capture their wedding day, especially when one of those friends is a fellow martial artist and black belt. Lily and bride Kira trained together until Kira left for medical school in NYC, where she’d first lay eyes on classmate and future groom Vince. We had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago when we photographed Kira’s best friend (and future matron of honor) Kelly’s wedding. Little did we know that we’d all reunite so soon for another joyous occasion!
Our thoughtful, fun-loving couple planned an amazing two-day getaway for their family and friends over Memorial Day weekend. The location? Trail’s End Camp in Beach Lake, PA, a lush, 450-acre retreat surrounded by the Pocono Mountains and outfitted with log cabins, giant tepees, a sandy beach, outdoor activities galore, and curious wildlife (hello, Mr. Fox!). We couldn’t believe it…

In the last year we’ve started a new travel video project. Between that and weddings I guess that’s why this blog has been sorta neglected with just the occasional re-blog of our wedding stuff. Now I wanna start sharing our travel series here too. Currently up to eight cities! Here’s Rome!

We entered our fourth year of wedding photography in 2016 and are still incredibly humbled and honored by the dozens of couples that asked us to join them on their wedding day. Their journeys took us across the greater San Francisco Bay Area, including historic firehouses and Odd Fellows halls in San Francisco, secret gardens in Bodega Bay, redwood forests in the Santa Cruz Mountains, underwater wonderlands in Monterey, lakeside mansions in Oakland, lush vineyards in Livermore and Pleasanton, and succulent gardens in Berkeley. We rocked out in Reno (the Biggest Little City in the World!), took a rollicking ride on a narrow-gauge steam train, met a debonair pup named Pocket, served as witnesses for intimate elopements, and soaked up technicolor sunsets and glorious moonrises (both the Harvest Moon and Full Hunter’s Moon!).
The year also brimmed with unexpected wedding-day moments. Rashel and Justin sawed a log in half during their ceremony. Mandy and Ethan’s ring exchange was marked by fiery flair. Tony…

There’s a reason why Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world—it’s infinitely walkable and breathtaking any time of year. We were lucky to share one of the first days of spring with Joyce and Bingjun, and witnessed not only the sunrise (our first in Paris!) over the City of Lights but the sunset.
The first part of our session started in the Montmartre, in the northern part of Paris, well before daybreak. To our surprise, the funicular was running, which saved us the 300-plus-step climb up the hill to the Sacré Cœur basilica. Resting on the highest point in the city, the 19th-century landmark is a popular location for soaking up panoramic views. When we arrived that Sunday morning, cleaning crews were sweeping up the mounds of beer cans and litter that revelers had left beyond, while pigeons were frantically scavenging what they…
