The Mercer Family

The Mercer Family

We are lucky… very lucky. I don’t know how we get so lucky actually. Sara and Doug had us photograph their destination wedding in Mexico almost four years ago. And now, we get to see them every year. Not only that, but we get to see their daughter, Hermione, every year (it really is all about… + Read More

A New York candid engagement session // Rachel and Chris

A New York candid engagement session // Rachel and Chris

Rachel and Chris had never been to New York City together, so Rachel thought it would be a great idea to surprise Chris with a trip to the city AND… a New York candid engagement session. Of course, we obliged. Our shoot was set for Saturday, and on Thursday, Rachel told Chris that he needed a hair… + Read More

Avry and Layla

Avry and Layla

We met Avry and Layla at Sunset Park in Braintree, MA on a beautiful fall day. Avry informed us that she wanted one photo for her Christmas card and in typical Viera style, we gave her 239 photos to choose from (to be exact). How can we be expected to give only one with a… + Read More

An Indian Wedding in Sonoma Valley // Shauna and Vinay

An Indian Wedding in Sonoma Valley // Shauna and Vinay

Marriage is union of two people, two families, and in Shauna and Vinay’s case a blending of two cultures. As they entered into a union together, they offered a unique experience for all their guests by spreading their wedding ceremonies across two days and two cultures. The Kunde Family Estate’s diverse property was the perfect… + Read More

Arista winery wedding // Saray and Jesse

Arista winery wedding // Saray and Jesse

Saray woke up on yet another beautiful Sonoma morning, a day not unlike the many others her and Jesse have spent in wine country. And just like all the others, the blue sky was in full effect, the grapes were dangling dangerously off the vines, begging to be picked; but on this day… on this particular day…. she was… + Read More

Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer

As a photographer, you have to take advantage whenever you can of great light opportunities.  The other morning, as summer continued its fruitless campaign at asserting itself as a season, clouds hung low over the valley to the east. I headed back out to a place I remembered on one of our house-hunting expeditions from the same… + Read More

A San Francisco Elopement // Carmen and Joe

A San Francisco Elopement // Carmen and Joe

A day when you get to meet a couple on the Golden Gate bridge for their San Francisco elopement is a truly unique one! Carmen and Joe are Dean and Chancellor (respectively) of two University of Wisconsin campuses, and on a Thursday afternoon this summer, they decided to elope atop the Golden Gate Bridge.  Running is a big part… + Read More

A General’s Daughter wedding // Cybil and Ali

A General’s Daughter wedding // Cybil and Ali

Cybil and Ali’s General’s Daughter wedding in Sonoma took place on a warm winter afternoon. Cybil joked throughout the day that this was “Ali’s dream wedding” as she had wanted to elope, but he couldn’t bear the idea of not celebrating their love in front of everyone they know! So a compromise was made, and they choose to have… + Read More

Our new fuzzy friends

Our new fuzzy friends

An alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small llama in appearance but alpacas were not bred to be beasts of burden, rather they’ve been bred for their valuable fiber.  Part of what has always been a dream for us is to have just enough land to grow our own food and to have a few… + Read More

Ashley and Nick

Ashley and Nick

We met Miss Ashley a few years ago when we were looking for a good assistant. I don’t remember who contacted who first, but I do know we hit the jackpot! We had never met Ashley before, we showed up at her apartment complex in Orange County and picked her up, quickly trying to get to… + Read More
