A Romantic Winter Wedding | Inspirational Shoot

When we were contacted by Southern California Bride and asked to be a part of a Romantic Winter Wedding Session, infused throughout with Spanish inspiration, we couldn’t say “Yes!” fast enough. So much planning and heart was poured into this project from the editor and event coordinator, it was unreal to see the outcome of all their labor! The results of the shoot is beyond words and we are incredibly humbled to have been asked to document all the awesomeness at the Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano. Working alongside some of the most talented vendors in the business is a dream come true and looking back at all the images captured, it really does look and feel like a dream.

Enjoy!
Sammy

An Intimate Greek Wedding | Mary + Florin

For as long as we could remember, we aspired to one day find ourselves in the ancient land of Greece. The history, the beauty, the feeling of being in a magical part of the world that was far different from our world – it would be a dream come true! So when Mary and Florin reached out to us about capturing their beautiful destination wedding in Greece, we could not say “YES” fast enough! We were honored yet so humbled that this stunning couple would invite us for their intimate wedding surrounded by a handful of their dearest family and friends. The photographs below are a collection of our favorite moments captured during our travels in Athens and Santorini. We will never forget this incredible trip and will forever treasure Mary and Florin in our hearts for making our dream come true! Words are not enough, and unfortunately, photographs don’t even give justice to all the beauty that we experienced. We were thankful to have our Videography team along for the ride to capture all the amazingness on film. We hope you enjoy viewing today’s blog post as much as we did being a part of it!

Enjoy!
