Mendocino Area Vacation Suggestions - Destination Photographer

A few weeks ago Stephen and I were in Mendocino for a beautiful wedding on the coast at the Heritage House Resort. The wedding took place overlooking the cliffs and had the most spectacular views. Like most of our personal work, we only brought our medium format film camera. This time in particular, we chose only to shoot on our new Hasselblad so I could get used to using it faster for our newborn sessions. This camera is super fun as it’s all manual, has no batteries or anything. It shoots in a unique 6x6 square format which is fun and creatively challenging.

Nella Terra Cellars San Francisco East Bay Area Wedding Videographer - Tyler&Ashley

What a memorable wedding day this was! Right when we walked in, the bridesmaids were full of energy and ready for an amazing day. This set the mood for the whole day, everyone there was so bubbly and full of joy for Ashley and Tyler's big day.

This wedding was one of our rare videography-only weddings which was a fun change of pace for us right in the middle of our 2018 wedding season. While we are most often shooting both photo and video at weddings, we do take on a select few video-only experiences per season. For these…

Cozy Bungalow Portland Lifestyle Anniversary Session - Featured on Inspired By This

We are thrilled to share that our Portland Oregon lifestyle session is featured on Inspired By This today. A few months ago, we took a family vacation up in Cannon Beach for the 4th of July. On our way to the beach house, we spent the night in Portland Oregon. Knowing in advance, we arranged to photograph a lifestyle session in a super cute AirBNB. The owner of the bungalow also happens to own a staging and design company up in Portland. It was the perfect backdrop for the session and we hope to stay in their place the next time we're in the area.

We can't be the Handyman in every situation.

Stephen and I were reminded of a very good life lesson recently. While we were in LA one of our sprinklers went a little wild. It was spewing out water and most likely the culprit behind that big jump in our water bill recently. What looked like a simple fix to us, turned into a greater dilemma. This problem truly remind us to practice what we preach...
