Welcome, 2011.

For all you photographers (full-time, part-time, or hopeful), here’s an answer to a FAQ for you:

How do you retouch your photos?

We’re still learning everyday all the new types of tools and Photoshop tricks you can use for editing.  But, right now we use a variety of software for correcting for exposure, color, temperature, and ultimately for the artistic retouching.  A few of our favorites:

Here are 3 examples below.

before


after


  • Aperture: Color Efex > Photo Stylizer | Style 1
  • Totally Rad Actions: Highlight Separator (56%), Pro Retouch, Eye Bump
  • Photoshop: Patch Tool to remove horizontal folds in the curtains and blemishes on the bride

the wedding

Welcome to one of the best most CREATIVE weddings we’ve ever seen, Juliana and Tony’s fabulous Halloween wedding inspired by Tim Burton!

We made sure to come early to capture everything.

Details. Details. Details!  Most handmade and handpicked by the bride herself!

The creatures were handmade by the bride, inspired by the Nightmare Before Christmas transformed Haunted Mansion ride in Disneyland.

Every table was designated to a specific Tim Burton movie.

The cake accessories were designed by the bride as well, each tier dedicated to a specific movie as well.  Can you identify which movie is which?



Did we mention their rad photo booth?


the stylin’ groomsmen

the fabulous bridesmaids

We always make sure to keep the guests laughing and playing around during the party photo booth.

this kid was adorable!  Love photographing kids in play.

We are all about original love stories and weddings. This couple is definitely the fabulous one-of-a-kind ones.
