This morning I have some special news: my photo of Sofi and Amit, from their wedding in Mamallapuram in eastern India, aptly called Bengali Bride Fish, is the National Geographic Photo of the Day. This is really such an honor and a dream come true! Click the photo to see the article on the National Geographic website!
In the latest issue of Rangefinder Magazine, our own Lead Associate Lauren Belknap is named one of 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography – 2014. A Rising Star is a wedding photographer who is selected by the artistic and creative quality and uniqueness of their portfolio and the fact that they are new to the industry, less than 5 years to be exact.
This is HUGE news and an amazing accomplishment! Especially when you consider that Lauren first came to work with us only 3 summers ago and just 2 months after graduating from Brooks College in Santa Barbara. Since that time we have continually worked with Lauren on her craft while photographing weddings with us in places like Bora Bora, Hawaii, Mexico and all over the US. She even had a small image of Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas on the cover of US Weekly!
She is a rare talent who now primarily shoots as a Lead photographer for Callaway Gable, and trains our newest shooters. You can see her portfolio on our Callaway Gable Associates page. Lauren exemplifies the idea that hard work does pay off, and no one deserves this more than she. Way to go Lauren!!! We love you and cannot wait to see what’s next!
Summer and Steve met in Thailand, and later lived together in Australia, and then New York City. Their Hyatt Regency Maui wedding was the perfect spot to celebrate their union with friends and family from all over the world. The Hyatt Regency Maui is located north of Lahaina on the western side of the island. Our experience there was nothing short of amazing. Special thanks to Brittany McIntyre and Nico Scherman from the Hyatt!!
Their portraits were taken at one of our favorite spots on Maui. When we turned off the highway, a massive double rainbow appeared that was literally yards away from us. I have never seen something so amazing – one of those special once in a lifetime experiences that comes with being a photographer.

Kelli and Danny’s Malibu Rocky Oaks wedding was planned by our amazing and talented friend, Alexandra Rembac of Sterling Engagements. Supported by a dream team of wedding artists like Shawna Yamamoto, Amber Event Production, City Palate Catering, Make-Up Therapy, Fantasy Frostings and more (look below for links and list of all vendors), Kelli and Danny’s wedding was simply stunning. Look at her pink dress, which was inspired by Kelli’s lifelong passion as a ballerina!
Malibu Rocky Oaks sits at 2000 feet above sea level in the Santa Monica Mountains and is spread over 37 acres of rolling hills. At its highest points sits an amazing Tuscan estate overlooking the vineyards below. This is where Kelli and Danny were married. It has to be one of Los Angeles’ most amazing wedding venues!
