Jeremy + Valerie – A Chinese, Rock-n-Roll Wedding!

Jeremy and Valerie are married! These two could not have been more excited about seeing their friends and family. They had moved to NY together years ago but never let their past in California fade. In fact we photographed their engagement session in Paradise, CA where they met on Monday of last week. Their wedding was Saturday! I will post a few from that later. I know it seems backwards but we had to share a couple photos from their wedding. Valerie was excited for her day, really excited. You can see, especially later when she had her lion dancers show up at the Asian Pearl! Seeing her so elated really made our evening. Something that, to other people, might be silly was really important to her. Tradition was a huge piece of what made her who she is and tradition is huge to Jeremy as well. This really was a wedding day that celebrated who these two are. Valerie and Jeremy put it best, their wedding was Chinese with a splash of Rock n Roll. You can tell by the fun everyone had dancing that there was a really great splash of Rock n Roll! Thank you again Jeremy and Valerie for letting us help you tell your story!

Our little family is getting bigger!

Life is always an adventure in our household. We are lucky to have the opportunity to work really hard for our clients. They believe in us so much that they allow us into their lives to tell their story. We have been able to travel far and wide capturing the world through our client’s eyes as they come together creating their families. A wedding really is the start of one of the most special things we have in our society. Family is who we gather to celebrate our unions in marriage. We gather them for so many events that are special in our lives, birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries and more. We are related to those we call family and sometimes our closest friends become our family. Family is where adventure begins for us. It is where our childhoods flourished and our lives started. It only takes two people in love to want to start this crazy thing called a family. The next step of creating a family together has Lisa and I beyond excited to say the least. It is a step that has sleepless nights, runny noses, dirty butts and smiles from wide eyes wanting nothing more but you to comfort them. It’s a step we have both dreamed of together and dreamed of before we found each other. We have spent countless hours talking about the family we could not wait to create together. That being said, we could not be more excited to announce that our next big adventure is coming January, 2014! Baby Bardot is on the way!!!

As we take on every new adventure capturing our clients creating their families through marriage we had the idea to capture a single image of Lisa almost every week as our baby is growing. Below are a few of our favorites!
