Behind the Scenes 2017 - Northern California Photographer and Videographer


It's that time of year again for us. Its where we share with you the behind the scenes of what it looks like to be a wedding photographer and videographer team. This post will include the good, the bad, and the sometimes the ugly expressions that get caught on camera throughout the wedding day. If you missed last year's behind the scenes blog post, make sure to check that one out as well, it's totally worth it!

Over the years, our TréCreative family has grown and every year we’re blown away by the generosity and care our couples have for us! When we first decided to start this business, we had no idea the cities and countries it would take us to. We had no idea the lives that would be impacted and the way our marriage would grow from working together. We absolutely LOVE what we get to do and feel so honored that we have a job that allows us to travel and go on lots of adventures with our couples!

This year, we were in five different states and traveled to as far as Mexico and the East Coast for destination weddings. Not to mention traveling often around Northern California where we live, to Napa, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and beyond. We finished our fifth wedding season shooting 34 lovely weddings this year with amazing couples. As we spend time rebooting, setting new goals and reflecting, we feel so extremely grateful. It's such a blessing to have these couples who value our artistry. That want their families and grandchildren to look at their photos and video and cherish that legacy of love for years to come. Our hope is that our past and future couples would feel loved and served all throughout the wedding process and we’re so thankful for the people that cheer us along the way!

Enjoy some of the outtakes and my oh so glamorous many double chins, ha!


Styling details in the bridal suite is one of my favorite things to do. You'll often times find me on the floor doing this.

Sometimes the stool height won't do, so I climb on chairs
