In October, Stephen and I decided we wanted to up our coffee game and invest in an espresso machine. I joke that the TréCafe is now open for business. Since then, we have enjoyed learning more about the complexities of coffee and have gotten more coffee accessories. Lately, we’ve been especially loving using our V60 because of its speed and taste. Having good coffee with our early morning breakfast always seems like the icing on the cake. This past week, we needed that extra boost of coffee!
Welcome to the TréCreative blog! We are Stephen&Chelsey, the husband and wife team behind TréCreative Film&Photo. We love going on adventures together and finding new ways to love our TréCreative family. On our blog, you’ll get to meet our amazing couples, see some of our adventures unfold, and hear about wedding day tips&tricks! We’re so glad you’re here!
March is a particularly special month for Stephen and I and now for Josiah&Hanna too! We both share an anniversary in the same month and we have both experienced the most amazing beautiful Spring weather we can talk about for years to come! Josiah&Haana were married at the end of Lower Bidwell Park at Creekside Rose Garden with a few hundred of their closest friends and family!
With wedding season in full gear again, we’ll be spending a lot of time in our car. Listening to podcasts and audio books has become one of our favorite pastimes together. Occasionally one of us will continue working while the other one drives, but Stephen especially looks forward to this time to re-charge.
Breakfast has become our favorite meal of the day. It all started when we were first married. Three months after our wedding, I jumped in full time with Stephen to join forces. I had just graduated from college and quit my part time job. We had this routine that we would wake up at 6am and go to the gym before starting work. When Wednesday rolled around, we were both exhausted and wanted a day to sleep in past our 5:30am alarm. We quickly dubbed Wednesdays as our “date day” and we would go to a favorite breakfast place in our hometown of Chico or be adventurous and try someplace new. This weekly tradition lasted nearly a year. From then on, breakfast has always been our favorite time of day to go on a date when we get a chance.
We had the honor of photographing Billy&Tristin’s ten-year vow renewal in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. 30 of their closest friends and family all traveled from Nevada to California to witness Billy&Tristin recite their vows in a peaceful spot surrounded by gorgeous Redwood Trees.
Cameron&Macy met us after work on the same property that Cameron helps manage. In between all the rain Chico was having, we managed to schedule their engagement session on a clear day just after the rain hit.
Editing this film we couldn’t help but smile the entire time. These two have a joy that is truly contagious. From their heartfelt and hilarious vows, to their funky fresh dance moves, these two were such a pleasure to capture on film. Their wedding day was hot, but that didn’t phase these two one bit. They had cute white umbrellas ready for guests to shade themselves during the ceremony which was a great idea!
We knew these two knew had a good time from their engagement session they requested to do at a fair! The loved the bright colors, the fun atmosphere and we totally know why. It truly fits their personalities! Their wedding was the same theme, incredibly FUN, colorful, and inspired by their favorite Disney movie, UP. These two went all out to make sure their guests also had the time of their lives at this wedding. The delicious food, the choreographed dances, and not to mention the ice cream, popcorn, and other sweet treats! They even brought along our very own TréBooth to this one which was super fun to have around!
One thing we love most about this couple is their laughter and spunk they have for life. They weren’t afraid to completely be themselves in planning this wedding. We can’t think of a time that these two didn’t have a smile on their face throughout the day. We have no doubt that Ricky&Anjelica’s marriage will be filled with lots of great adventures, laughter, family and some crowd-pleasing dance moves! Thank you Ricky&Anjelica for asking us to be part of your amazing wedding. Your family is just as amazing as you two and we were blessed to spend a beautiful summer day with you all!

The majority of last week was spent out of the office for an ongoing commercial video project we have in Napa, then a wedding following that in San Francisco. In between, we celebrated with a little destination aniversary trip!
Yesterday was a big milestone for us. We celebrated our four year wedding anniversary! With each year, it seems as though it passes by even faster.
The almond blossoms seemed to last much longer in Chico this year so we took advantage several times for a few engagement sessions.
