After months of design, retouching and extensive postproduction…

Once we see the face of our couples when they receive their album, it has all been so very worth it.

We searched through dozens of international printing companies before we chose and fell in love with the best printer out there: GraphiStudio.  Below is their castle where the albums are handmade in Italy:

As for design, our studio takes full responsibility for creating a modern classic design, customized for each couple: Magazine-style, storytelling albums that share just what happened that day.

Our signature cover: Crystal Glance with leather spine and binding

A favorite of our couples, gifts for their parents from their wedding day – parent albums

One for his and one for her parents

 

We felt so blessed to hear how much Tiffany and Steven loved their wedding album.  We hope you enjoy as well with a glimpse of Tiffany and Steven’s Signature Wedding Album:

Courtney and Calvin | Chic Disneyland Engagement

the love story

Courtney and Calvin go all the way back to junior high.  But they didn’t know it ’til college.

Apparently their worlds intersected since junior high.  They went to the same high school, then college.  But they didn’t meet ’til freshman year in college.  In fact, after they dated, Courtney watched some old high school videos and actually saw Calvin walking around in the background!  Small world.

It was love at first sight.  Four years later, Calvin proposed on their favorite place on earth.

the romantic proposal

December in Disneyland is just magical.  There’s just nothing like it around Christmas.  Calvin took Courtney to Disneyland for her birthday.  At the park, Calvin stepped away and handed Courtney an envelope that was labelled “Disney Challenge”.

Now, they’ve done scavenger hunts on previous dates so Courtney just thought it was just a fun game to play.

She went from clue to clue all around Disneyland and California Adventure.  Cast members even participated and gave her the next clue.

But once she reached her favorite ride, Toy Story Mania, she saw Calvin…down on one knee with this amazing custom ring box he designed:

Amazing proposal with her favorite movie next to her favorite ride at her favorite date spot…with her best man.  It was perfect.

the engagement

We fell in love with Courtney and Calvin from the first date.  We all share a love for Disneyland.  When we heard they were going to have their wedding there, we just about fainted.  It was seriously something on my [Drexelle] bucket list to capture a love story there.

Then, when we heard they wanted photography depicting Disneyland for adults – a CHIC Disney, we cried in happiness.

…OK there weren’t tears but I definitely jumped up and down (you know, inside).

We worked with our amazing stylist, Connie Kim, and this awesome couple to create all the perfect details to make a Disney engagement session LIKE NO OTHER.  We’re thankful to God for this awesome time and are happy to present this:

Courtney and Calvin, we love you guys.  Seriously, it’s been such a blessing and amazing journey working with and getting to know the two of you.  We cannot wait ’til we meet next.  We’re so excited to work with you on creating your Chic Disney wedding!

on a personal note

Speaking of chic, have you heard of the Disney Princess Designer Collection?  GORGEOUS!  They have modern haute couture dresses designed for each Disney princess and I wish…WISH…they had these gowns for sale.  You know…just for some random…enchanted evening.

Anyhow, this AWESOME couple were so sweet to get me a surprise birthday gift:

Wouldn’t that gown just be perfect? *sigh*

And, by the way, did you know Disney bottled its own wine?  Courtney + Calvin were so incredibly wonderful to us and gave us one after the e-session.  We love you guys!

Irene and Mat | Grand Tradition Estate Project Everlasting Wedding

how they met

A classic romantic comedy moment, we have to share how these two met…in Mat’s words, as only Mat can describe it.

We met at the Los Angeles Wedding Expo exactly 4 years ago to the day of our wedding.

I saw Irene.

I approached Irene.

She didn’t like me.

I retreated to my booth.

I approached her again.

She still didn’t like me.

I retreated again.

I approached her a third time.

She still didn’t like me.

I retreated again.

I had an idea.

I gave her Project Everlasting.

She read the book.

She liked me.

I liked her.

Four years and many fun times (and a few good healthy arguments) later we’re getting married.

The marriage masters would be proud.

Especially one particular grandma and grandpa marriage master couple who are looking down on us right now — smiling.

the wedding day

Everyone came to the wedding absolutely thrilled for the couple.  It’s been quite a journey and, if you haven’t read Project Everlasting or watched the documentary, you should.  It’s truly inspiring and its cause is dear to David and my heart personally.

Having followed the work of Mathew Boggs with Project Everlasting and Cracking the Man Code, we couldn’t wait to capture and celebrate the marriage Mat, a bachelor who taught the world about marriage and was about to finally join its world, and the lovely and lovable Irene.

In photographing weddings, it’s not only important to capture moments.  For us, it can be so wonderful when you help create them.

One of our favorite moments to create is the first look with your parents.

Absolutely love this photo of Irene when her father and mother saw her for the first time in her wedding dress.  I honestly would’ve loved a photo of this on my wedding day!  Mr. and Mrs. Lizarraga, you are an amazing couple and we feel so blessed to have captured these special moments with your baby girl.
