Jakob & Alexandra | Sweden

The year 2014 was an extraordinary year and I’m happy to share some of the images that I took at Jakob and Alexandra‘s wedding in Sweden. I have to say that it has truly become one of my favorites and probably one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been a part of. Cole, Therese, and little Embla’s hospitality and kindness was unmatched and I find myself always in search of fika!

Of course, it also goes without saying, I cannot thank the incomparable Nirav Patel, enough for asking me to be his wingman for this experience. He has been in my corner since day one and has played a huge role in helping me become the artist I am today. I am blessed to call him a friend and for that I am truly grateful.

I would like to believe that I always learn something new from every trip. For this particular adventure I learned that no matter where you are in the world, take the time to get to know people. Surround yourself with good energy and everything else becomes secondary.

Caleb & Mia | Sveadal – Morgan Hill, CA

It was our first time ever photographing a camp wedding at Sveadal in Morgan Hill, CA.  In fact, we never even knew the place existed until we met Caleb & Mia.  Nestled in the south bay this place, maintained by the Swedish American Patriotic League, was such a welcome breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of city life.  It possessed the perfect setting for the vision of their wedding and we were lucky enough to spend the entire weekend with them to capture it all.  Aside from Caleb playing catch and release to wood spiders the entire experience was awesome; Not only because we had the honor of photographing the wedding of two gorgeous people but we truly felt we made memories with life long friends here.  We always receive a lot of gratitude for what we do as artists but I believe we truly receive the biggest benefit when our bride and grooms welcome us in to their lives with open arms and treat us like family.  They immerse us and welcome us to interact with their family and that is something that we do not take lightly.

Caleb and Mia, thank you again for the great times!  Let’s break bread soon!  We love y’all!

nirav - Yup. That’s how it’s done.

John-Michael & Angélique | Magical Gardens | San Francisco

Everyday that Amari and I have an opportunity to wake up in the morning and do what we love to do is an absolute blessing.  We pour ourselves into our photography as we invest not only our time, but our emotions.  After all, we truly approach it as an art form and we take it very personal.  That is why, it is always an honor to photograph other artists because they know how it feels to be in our shoes.  It’s interesting to note that a majority of our clients in 2014 have been artists in some shape, form, or medium, and we LOVE that.  Take Angélique for example, who is the talented photographer behind Catch the Foxes Photography based in Florida.  We were honored that she and her fiancé, John-Michael, chose us to capture their San Francisco destination wedding.  We started off the day with their first look at Mt. Davidson Park when Angélique revealed her stunning Sarah Seven wedding gown to her groom.  The bohemian inspired floral crown and bouquet by Home Sweet Flowers were the perfect accent to an already beautiful bride.  They both looked absolutely stunning and needless to say, they were both so easy to photograph and so darn cute to boot!

They arranged a picnic lunch with their bridal party atop Bernal Heights prior to the ceremony and were able to soak in the beauty and view of San Francisco.  Their self-proclaimed “hipster wedding” was held just at the foot of the hill at home called Magical Garden, and that it was.  It was gorgeous, quirky, and whimsical all at the same time.  They adorned the place with eclectic fabrics and textures, knicks and knacks, and their personality. . . it was amazing seeing everything come to fruition months after we sat and talked about what their vision for their wedding was.  Especially with the help of Hunt & Gather Rentals, the entire venue looked amazing!  They certainly made it their own and it showed in every aspect of their wedding.  We especially loved the group prayer during the ceremony.  It was moving to witness families and friends coming together voicing their prayers and blessings for them.

After the ceremony, they invited everyone to the lower level of the garden where they exchanged stories and speeches, played retro games such as Twister, Operation, and a custom-made Guess Who? game.  The naked red-velvet cake created by Pretty Please Bakeshop was amazing and the tattoo bar added such a fun twist to the day.  Did I mention the piñata?

John-Michael & Angélique, we are blessed to have met you two and look forward to breaking bread with you two again in the near future.  Cheers!
