  • This is our story . . .

    FUN. PASSIONATE. REAL . . . these are not just words but who we are.

    The philosophy behind the brand is simple; we believe if you're not having FUN, then we’re not doing it right. Our PASSION for photography inspires us to capture fleeting moments of your wedding day candidly and creatively as they unfold. REAL, is our down to earth philosophy that connects us to you. We want to be right there with you every step of the way to capture the fun, passionate, and real you.

    That is who we are and that is our story.

Nicole and Brian really wanted to have a beach destination wedding but her grandparents, one of the most important persons in her life, were unable to travel so they decided to bring the island to them by having a beautiful beach theme motif for their wedding day. The groom sported a casual linen suit with sandals and all the groomsmen wore casual beach linen outfits sans jackets. The wedding wouldn’t be complete without a seashell inspired wedding cake and outdoor tent wedding. We were so inspired by her destination theme, that we even created a special beach island motif wedding highlight show.

Kelly and Eric enjoyed a fabulous wedding last weekend getting married in front of all their friends and family with a beautiful ceremony and reception at Tendenza.
The got ready at Le Meridien Hotel in center city and for their reveal, we decided to do something different by having Eric wait for Kelly outside of the Elevator to surprise Kelly for their first look.

We are so fortunate to be a part of this beautiful wedding story that shows us “True Love” does exist when you believe. Watch Emi and Jack’s fairytale wedding come to life at Hakone Estate & Gardens, one of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s premier sites. Nearly a century old, Hakone is the oldest Japanese and Asian estate, retreat and gardens in the Western Hemisphere: 18 acres of magnificent beauty nestled in the verdant hills of Saratoga overlooking Silicon Valley.
