Ann and Conrad hail from Minneapolis, MN, where they run a successful restaurant together: Pizzeria Lola. If you are a fan of Food Network’s Diner Drive-Ins and Dives, you may have seen their restaurant featured. It was the episode with Matthew McConaughey and foodie Andrew Zimmern. They’re famous! Anyway, Ann and Conrad have been together for several years and wanted to do something different and special for their wedding. They decided to elope and have a Four Seasons Bora Bora wedding!!
Bora Bora is accessed via Tahiti, an 8-hour place ride from Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui. Once there it’s a 45-minute small plane ride to the island. It’s a lot closer than it seems, basically just a couple of hours longer than the time it takes to get to Hawaii. Once you land in Bora Bora, it’s a short boat or ferry ride to any of the hotels. Most of the photos below were shot on their wedding day. The photos where they are wearing the traditional Tahitian wedding pareus (white sheets) and where they are in the water were photographed on the following day where we spent a great deal of time dodging the rain. A very special thanks to all of the ladies at the Four Seasons Bora Bora: Marie Perrier, Aurélie, and Melissa Lorenz. And especially to Ann and Conrad who trusted us to fly half way across the Pacific to document their special trip! Mauruuru!

Congratulations to Allison Callaway for her winning photo in Junebug Weddings Best of the Best Engagement Photos 2014. This awesome shot is from Megan and Dale’s engagement in downtown Culver City. Make sure to head over to the Junebug Weddings contest site. You will be blown away by all of the amazing images.
Allison and I have regularly stayed at the Viceroy Palm Springs since the first month we started dating over 8 years ago. We love to bring the kids there because it is so close to downtown Palm Springs, and there is a family pool. The hotel holds a special place in our hearts and memories.When we were first contacted by Rebecca and she told us all about her plans for her Viceroy Palm Springs wedding, we were over the moon!Um… yes! We would love to photograph your wedding! Since that time last year we have become fast friends. What an amazing thing for us: to photograph two people we love at one of our favorite places on earth!
Rebecca and Igino’s wedding was planned by our good friend Joey Lizotte of Artisan Events. Joey is also a friend, and we cannot even begin to express what joy it is to work with him and his amazing staff, each and every time! Thanks Joey!
