MEET THE COMPANY
TRAINING: Between all of us we have shot over 500 weddings and have more than 20 years of experience under our belts. We have taken the time and care to not only craft and hone our style and brand, but also to take our photographers through a year-long rigorous training program to educate our shooters not only on the photos we expect, but the experience we give to our couples. We hold each other to a high standard, one of consistency, creativity, and most of all ease and fun for our brides and grooms. We care just as much about you having a good time with us as we do about the photos we are making. Because we believe that those two things go hand in hand and both will be at their best together.
LOCATION: We are based in Los Angeles and travel all over Southern California on a weekly basis for both weddings and engagement sessions. In addition we have photographed weddings in fifteen other states, six countries, and four continents. We will travel anywhere in the world with you for just the cost of our trip. We not only love weddings, but we love to travel and want more countries and all seven continents in our gallery! Who doesn’t love to travel of course?! But we pride ourselves on taking great care with your wedding weekend wherever we are, scouting venues and locations and carrying backup equipment wherever we go!
EXPERIENCE: We want to be friends with you, to give you a big hug when we see you at our meeting, engagement session, & on your wedding day. We want to photograph your day candidly, unobtrusively, creatively, and without pretense. We want to be completely trusted. We want to let things unfold naturally, not orchestrating or posing along the way. But rather anticipating, seeing, and freezing that instant in time.
WHAT YOU WANT: You want your day photographed candidly, capturing the laughter, tears, joy, excitement, anticipation, and the partaaay. You want to be encouraged & directed, not micro-posed. You want photos of the chef plating your dinner, the fast food run before the ceremony, the wedding party lined up in anticipation before walking down the aisle. Everything from your place cards, to the band, to your sister tearing up as you get into your dress. Everything. Most importantly, we want your photos to stand the test of time. We want you to be able to look back on them in 20 years and be able to relive the day. We want you to see the emotions you felt. Not the poses we put you in. We want you to feel a tug on your heart strings all over again. Not a twinge of guilt over the silly poses that were “oh so 2017!”
MEET THE TEAM!
Meet Jenny | Owner & Photographer
I grew up in the blistering cold of Minnesota before moving to Chicago for college to study photography. My husband, Tyler, and I met in school and call the Windy City home even though we live here in sunny So Cal. When I’m not shooting weddings, you can find me playing with my grouchy cat Charlie, at Disneyland with Tyler, planning my next trip, or eating plain old fashioned donuts.
Meet Melanie | Core Photographer & Studio Creative
Born and raised in Southern California, I’m unusually pale for the amount of sun one would assume I’ve encountered. Growing up I was a total klutz, but I found my balance studying photography in college. When I’m not shooting weddings, you can find me watching Harry Potter, at a Dodgers game, or eating all the donuts.
Meet Abigail | Core Photographer
I’m originally from Boston, having grown up on the outskirts of the city before moving to Scotland to study photography. After living in San Francisco and New York, I settled in LA not to long ago with my husband, Kellen. We just got married in Oct 2014 so I know firsthand what being a bride is like! When I’m not shooting weddings, you can find me hiking, biking, or traveling. I love living within an hour of the beach, desert, and forrest in LA! I also love doing arts and crafts and of course, eating honey glazed donuts.
Meet Jenna | Core Photographer & Studio Creative
Like much of the team, I grew up here in Southern California! I recently married to my tattooed hunk, Andrew, in June 2014. When I’m not shooting weddings or in the studio, you can find me at a comedy show, nuzzling my pup, drinking coffee, or eating white cake donuts with frosting and sprinkles.
Meet Amsi | Photo Booth Guru
A native to Guatemala, I grew up here in Los Angeles and am studying Music Industry Studies at CSUN! I love all things music (I play the piano, sing, & write songs), backpacking though Europe, and spending time with family and friends. When I’m not running the Photo Booth, you can find me palling around with my Husky dog, Scotty, catching a movie, or eating all the donuts.
We are a part of Flock Studios, a hand-picked awesome-sauce group of creatives located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. We promise the not so scenic drive will be worth it once you turn down the drive, park in our private lot, & step foot in our studio. We will have an array of beverages waiting for you (let’s pop some champagne!) & some super cool furnishings to make you comfy! Nestled behind a neon sign museum in Los Angeles, we can’t help but gather design inspiration from our surroundings. Email to schedule an appointment and visit us at our studio.
