Oh yeah, it’s Monday. Thank goodness right? hmmmmmm…well at least it’s blog post time eh? Rico and I had a busy weekend (surprise!) with a sweet wedding on Saturday and an engagement session yesterday. AND with lots of AmigoBooth prep for a RAD event we’re shooting/running the booth at tonight in North Park. What is it you ask? Well, if you live in San Diego you MUST be familiar with our favorite food truck, MIHO Gastrotruck. It’s some amazing amazing quality food which we love, but it’s also run by some pretty special locals. We just adore them and appreciate their creativity in the local food industry and their participation in furthering the creative side of San Diego. Thanks MIHO peeps, you kick some serious ass! yep. Sooooo, tonight is the debut of their new wedding catering called The Vetted Table. It’s a pop up dinner at El Take It Easy in North Park and it’s going to be pretty epic, what with amazing food & drink and collaboration of a team of local SD creatives (Sitting in a Tree, DJ Austin Hendrix, Pow Wow Vintage, AmigoBooth, and us yo!)? Hello! So if you’re in the wedding industry, are an SD local, or just enjoy good food, you won’t want to miss it. Here are the details HERE.

NOOOOW for the blog today! We recently had the opportunity of doing a lifestyle/family shoot with Maurice, Amy, and Lou. These two are San Diego photographers as well (Betwixt Studio) and we are always HONORED when other photographers ask us to document their life…means a ton to us so of course we jumped at the chance! Amy just started PA school, so they wanted to document this time in their lives before the next chapter begins. So we went to their place in Point Loma, drank some coffee, hung out with their sweet pup Lou, and took some pics. We then headed over to South Park (best neighborhood ever eh?…we think so), where we walked around, hung out the car, and the usual antics. Maurice and Amy, thank you for letting us into your life for a few hours and for trusting us 100%. We adore you and your little family and we thank you for the reminder as to how valuable our profession is…thank you thank you thank you for that, after the hundreds and hundreds of hours we put into our career, you have no idea how much we need to hear that sometimes (well actually, you do have an idea, since you do the same!!). We wish you the very very very best in your new endeavors and cannot wait to hang out again soon! xoxoxo

Oh hey there lovers. I hope you all enjoyed your weekending and are ready to start the week with a Monday post. Rico and I have been in Denver visiting family the last several days, but will be heading back to reality here later tonight. We’ve spent the last few days relaxing, eating (A LOT), strolling through Boulder (amazing city), then we had a mentor session yesterday with two lovely ladies…it’s been a good time besides the unfortunate fact that I’ve been under the weather the whole time. Because of this I’m going to keep this short because the pictures are WAY better than my sick self (I just sneezed like 10 times gah).

You may remember that a few weeks ago Rico and I went to Vegas for a conference. While we were there we had the opportunity to do a session with Jordan and Ashley. She is a rad photographer from Indiana (Ashley Dru Photo yea-ya),who had found us through the internets and contacted us about doing a shoot with them when we both would be in Vegas at the same time. We LOVE shooting other photographers, especially really cute ones like these two, so we were in. So we headed out to the desert, ran around in the sand, threw rocks, jumped off boulders, took some pics. Then after it was all said and done, we got down on the dance floor with these two at Airplanes and Blazers (major skills you two, major skills). Ashley and Jordan, we kinda like you…A LOT. And why is Indiana so far again? Blast. Thank you for the opportunity to spend some time with you in the desert and to tell just a bit of your story. We are already counting the days until next year, and until then, see you on the internets! xoxox!!!

TUESDAY? I know, I let you down. Making it up to you right now though, I promise! Well May was quite the whirlwind month for Rico and I to say the least. We shot MANY weddings and engagement shoots, were in San Francisco, Palm Springs, LA, Los Olivos, San Luis Obispo…and more. On top of that we moved into our new house last week and are ready to get started on all the projects! So as you can see we have been living in crazy town and are ready for things to get back to just a bit more normal (I’m walking sans crutches now..yay!). ┬áSo although I would have MUCH rather been blogging, yesterday was spent many hours in the car. So, here we go, making it up to you!

Today’s shoot is an absolute treat if you ask me. I have the “trash the dress” session of a very special couple to share with you. We had the EXTREME pleasure to shoot Andie and Doug’s wedding last August, and through them booking us for their wedding, they have now become some of our closest friends. These two mean the absolute WORLD to me and it was seriously awesome to do another shoot with them after all the time we’ve spent hanging out, chatting (gchat!), and hours of talking photography (andie has become quite the kick ass photog herself!) and weddings and life (drinking wine?). Having them in front of the camera is like breathing and it was just what we needed in the middle of crazy season. Andie and Doug, you know how much you mean to us, SO MUCH…you might not know how hot you are though, so that’s what we’re here for. Ladies and gentleman, I give you Andie and Doug’s hotness….you’ll be crushing hard after this post for sure, Lord knows I am! xoxo
