What a whirlwind of a weekend! Brett got home Friday night from being gone all week long leading a student guide training in the pouring rain, in the mountains! We then got up early the next morning to shoot this AWESOME wedding and I prayed for strength and endurance to get through it at 8 months pregnant – God pulled through as always and it was a spectacular day. More on that below and later. Then Sunday morning we woke up and spent the morning capturing the love and bond of another beautiful family that I will most definitely have to share in the near future. It was the extended family of the Chauvettes, that I took pictures of last spring on Coronado. It was seriously a great shoot, with beautiful sunshine bringing much needed warmth to a long, cold and wet week. Then we got to come home and rested – can you imagine that? Resting? Us? Well, ok, and then we put our baby’s crib together!!! Yay! Yes, we have a crib and now it is finally sinking in … we are having a baby in like a month!! When did that happen?? Anyways, it was a great weekend and we are now charging forward into this week preparing for the exciting Bridal Bazaar that is coming up this Sunday. Brides – be sure to stop by and say hello! It is going to be a super exciting day!!!
Ok, now onto the good stuff. We shot this wedding this past weekend and had the most AMAZING time. The Little family have become dear friends of ours since moving to San Diego and it was a complete blessing and honor to capture this day for them. Erica was literally one of the most beautiful brides I had ever seen. She was glowing with joy and love and pure beauty. The entire wedding was planned out perfectly thanks to the talents of Erica’s sisters – Jenna and Allison (yes, THE awesome and wonderful friend of mine, Allison Miller who has also second shot for me on several occasions and is very talented.) I will write more of this wedding later as there is so much to tell, but for now, I just could not resist posting some teaser shots. Enjoy and be sure to check back for the full post, you will not want to miss it!
Kyle and Erica – Congratulations and have a wonderful Honeymoon! Can’t wait to hang out soon!!!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Ok, so you’re probably reading this on Tuesday (it’s been one of those days)…
As you can tell from today’s blog title, we are going to talk about us. Yup, we love to talk about you you you usually, but occasionally…(if you listen to country music you should get that – if not, just move on!). Ok, back to the point. Today we get out from behind the camera. Nothing to hide behind. All eyes on us. We’re gonna get in front of the camera and see what it feels like to have two dark barrels of pretty Canon cameras hunting us down. So…to accompany these new photos of us, we’re also going to share our top 10 list of things that we think you might not know about us. Here it goes.
Emily says about Brett:
1) Brett has a very funny sense of humor that most people don’t catch onto until their third time hanging with him. 2) He loves the outdoors, especially downhill skiing and mountain biking 3) He is one of the most dedicated workers I have ever met, he puts his heart and soul into everything he is passionate about 4) He loves gear of any kind, whether it is for the outdoors or for photography-in fact, researching the gear for me for photography is what perked his initial interest in shooting with me 5) Brett is a huge Dave Ramsey fan – he loves to crunch numbers and help people get out of debt. 6) Brett doesn’t really show a lot of expression even though on the inside he is bursting with joy. 7) He grew up introverted, became an extrovert, and is becoming an introvert again As much as Brett wants to dance, he is a white boy with two left feet and no rhythm 9)Brett is Canadian and proud of it! 10) He loves pie, especially Strawberry-rhubarb!
Brett says about Emily:
1) Emily loves to be in front of the camera. 2) That’s how this all started for us. She wasn’t thrilled with our wedding photos and decided to do something about it for others getting married. 3) Emily grew up in the Czech Republic as a missionary kid and is still fluent in Czech (ask to hear the Czech tongue twister and prepare to be amazed!). 4) Em couldn’t cook when we got married. Now she is cheffin’ it up! 5) She freaks out for holidays and special occasions – she just can’t get enough of them. 6) She loves Ranch dressing entirely too much. 7) She learned to drive on a stick shift car in Europe – but won’t tackle driving my 5 speed Jetta. Em is a super fast reader. She can (and does) read circles around me. 9) She only likes sweet white wine. No Merlot for her! 10) Em gave up working in the Hollywood industry to become a photographer. No more movie junkets or meeting celebrities. And no regrets – she loves what she does!
Thanks to our dear friends, Rico and Rachel Castillero for the photoshoot exchange. We love you guys! We’ll post the pics we took of them later so stay tuned.
Note: this is NOT a maternity shoot, I just happen to be pregnant. Maternity pictures are coming, I promise.
