Hannah + Tommy were married at the UCSC Arboretum last May, a stunning botanical garden boasting incredible plan diversity and gorgeous landscapes in my hometown of Santa Cruz. I’ve known Hannah since we were little so it was really special to be present for her celebration. This beauty was six months pregnant on her wedding day, she was glowing, as was Tommy, stoked would be an understatement. The Arboretum is a very meaningful place for them, Tommy practical grew up there, so we knew it was important to integrate the beauty of this place in our compositions. There were tons of guests who I grew up with but hadn’t seen since high school, what a trip to re-meet so many as adults, loved every moment. It was such a joy to observe the love and respect these two share, they are connected beyond words. Being a part of their wedding was such an amazing experience, really felt full circle. Congratulations Hannah+Tommy, welcome to your sweet baby girl, so much to celebrate this year!


Lilly + Enrique. A finales del pasado Abril tuvimos la suerte de documentar la boda de Lilly y Enrique en Oaxaca, fue una hermosa celebración. Desde el momento en que los conocí en Oaxaca, sabía que iba a ser una gran fiesta llena de alegría, y así fue. El papa de Lilly también es Fotógrafo, así que aquel día que nos reunimos por primera vez, pasamos tiempo platicando de la fotografía documental, una linda manera de conocernos. Lilly y Enrique son seres llenos de luz y comparten un amor profundo presente en cada momento de su boda. Fue sin duda una bellísima experiencia. Gracias Lilly y Enrique por su confianza y ¡muchas felicidades!

Alice + Basil were married in Oaxaca last March and we feel lucky to have been a part of their wedding day. These two are beautiful inside and out, talented artists, unique in every sense, old souls with hearts of gold. Their wedding day was equally unique, starting at the Quinta Real, followed by the longest and most interesting mass we’ve ever attended, a lively calenda through the city accompanied by the one-and-only Mazapan to Casa Oaxaca Restaurant where the newlyweds were showered with love by their friends and families who’s speeches had us all in tears. It was a beautiful celebration to witness. Alice and Basil’s passionate love for one another, their families & friends and life in general truly inspires so much joy and happiness. Here’s to many more years of authentic love and wild adventure, ¡felicidades amigos!

Lauren + Brett were married in Lodi, California, where they both grew up and eventually re-crossed paths, a moment that lead to this most beautiful day. Surrounded by family and friends, they loved, laughed and danced the night away out on Lauren’s Grandparent’s land, a truly special place to celebrate this moment in their lives. Their ceremony was held at Cathedral of Annunciation in Stockton, which is one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever stepped foot in, we were mesmerized by the light and stained-glass. They got ready at their childhood homes with their closest friends and family in attendance, full of quiet moments of love and emotion. Lauren and Brett are two special souls. They share a noticeably profound and authentic love, you can feel it in the way they communicate, how they steal glances regularly that always end with the sweetest smirk of knowing that love is cherished. We feel so lucky to have been part of their wedding day. Congratulations Lauren + Brett! We’ll always be looking forward to crossing paths once again, amigos.

This post is dedicated to the loving memory of Lauren’s Grandfather, who was such a important part of their wedding day and a pillar of love and strength in their family. May he rest in peace.


Alicia + Scott were married at the Greenpoint Loft, a stunning venue on the waterfront in Brooklyn with views of Manhattan that light up the sky at night. Michelle of Onederland Events did an amazing job, everything was perfection, from the surprise Mets Mascot arrival to the Samba Dancers, the night was full of life, laughter and dancing … lots of dancing. Alicia got ready at the gorgeous William Vale Hotel also in Brooklyn, their rooms are something else entirely, boasting mind-blowing views of Manhattan from way high up … something that, to be perfectly honest, took me a minute to adjust to, but once I did I was captivated. Scott along with his friends and Father got ready at their apartment in the heart of Greenpoint and before all of the wedding activities began, Alicia, Scott and family played a few rounds of Horse to start they day off right. It was my first time shooting a wedding in New York and I loved every moment. These two share something very special, they’re contrasting personalities remind me much of my own relationship and they complement each other in the best ways possible. It was am amazing experience to be able to document this special day in their lives, congratulations to Alicia and Scott!

In case you missed it, these two came down to Oaxaca for their engagement shoot, here’s the post from that epic stormy adventure. Alicia + Scott’s Brooklyn wedding won a Story Award, which can be seen here.



Gaby + Gerardo son unos seres hermosos. Tuvimos el honor de documentar su boda y unos días después hicimos una sesión post-boda en el Centro Histórico de la ciudad enfrente del Restaurante de Gerardo, Sabina Sabe, y luego salimos para la Ex-Hacienda San Antonio, un lugar magnifico en medio de la naturaleza. Fue toda una aventura con lluvia, lodo, risa, perritos, alegría y mucho más, me encantó pasar la tarde con ellos haciendoles fotos y explorando la Ex-Hacienda. Pronto subiré la historia completa de su boda, mientras tanto, les compartimos unos de nuestros momentos favoritos de la sesión. Abrazos para G+G, ¡los queremos!


Patricia and Athanasi were married at Santo Domingo de Guzman church followed by a colorful cocktail and amazing fiesta at the Quinta Real Oaxaca. Their first look was one of our all time favorites! Patricia passed right by her awaiting groom, so nervous that she just kept on walking until onlookers pointed out her soon-to-be husband was now behind her! It was brilliant, unique and completely them. These two are gentle souls, kind and patient with one another and madly in love. It was an honor to document this special day in their lives. Happy six months married to Patricia and Athanasi!

Mary Grace + Arturo celebrated their wedding at the new Tierra Tropical Beach Club in San Pancho, Nayarit. It was the first wedding ever at this venue, a cool experience photographing in our old stomping grounds but at a brand new location. From the start, that moment we chatted on skype on a ridiculously hot evening in Oaxaca and a cool one in New York, I knew this was the beginning of a real life friendship. They didn’t even bat an eye as I nearly melted in the intense Oaxaca heat, sweating profusely on the video call, true friendship starts with acceptance they say now don’t they?! But in all seriousness, we clicked. A few months before Mary Grace and Arturo’s wedding in San Pancho, we were in New York and spent an evening roaming their barrio plastered with brilliant street art, eating amazing food and chatting all things everything seamlessly moving between English and Spanish, gushing about Mexico, culture, travel and life, we felt right at home. After that night we were even more excited. Flash forward to last November, seeing them together on their big day was a treat. Mary Grace and Arturo balance one another in so many ways, they bring out this feeling of total ease, acceptance and love in each other and in those around them, we feel lucky to have been able to experience this feeling while celebrating them. Their wedding ceremony was a dream at the local town church that we absolutely adored, full of character and interesting light, followed by an all out dance party at the absolutely stunning Tierra Tropical. Mary Grace and Arturo are two special souls to us and to those around them, real and authentic, beautiful inside and out, our dear friends and spectacular human beings, we are grateful to have been part of their wedding. Also, as luck would have it, we will be visiting them soon and you’ll find us sipping on mezcal and catching up in all of our languages, as we do. We’re excited to share their wedding story here on our blog, so on that note, ¡felicidades a Mary Grace y Arturo! We love you guys.

Unji and Andrew are amazing together, authentic and witty, genuine and kind, complementing one another perfectly in every way; I’m happy our paths crossed as they did. Thanks for having me along guys, ¡felicidades!
