Best of 2016

Weddings

[Preliminary Warning: there’s lots of images in this post so give it a few moments to load before scrolling.] 2016 was our first official year as Kindred Storytellers and we couldn’t be more excited for what 2017 holds. Per usual, we learned a ton by making mistakes and making some images we’re proud of in the process. We’re so grateful for all the incredibly diverse and unique couples that include us on such an intimate and monumental day. If there’s one thing we’ve learned as a couple planning our own wedding it’s make the event your very own. Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly on point or on trend, do what feels right and creative and representative of you both. Do that and we promise: it’ll be epic. See our favorites below!

Ushi + John’s Indian Ceremony at Campovida
Ushi and John had pretty much every weather pattern you can imagine in a single day with rain and momentary bursts of sun peeking through the clouds by the end of the evening and they were completely positive and joyful the whole way through. They gathered around their family and friends and had a traditional Indian ceremony which yes, did include John riding in on a horse, but none of these traditions were just because they should; they were each intentional and inspired by the rituals and spiritual traditions of Ushi's family. We were so inspired by how incredibly heartfelt and genuine everyone was and we really felt like two radically diff ...

Lauren + Ryan’s Los Angeles Wedding at Wattles Mansion
We were instant friends with Lauren and Ryan the moment we met. They're basically some of the coolest humans we've ever gotten the chance to work with. For their engagement session we explored the LACMA and discussed life as a creative, connected over our favorite 80's bands and our love for Northern Europe. Also our favorite quality is vulnerability with a couple. It's so important that we know the real story of you two and after they'd been together for TEN YEARS, there was a lot to share. And they shared it all, they gave us the good, bad and ugly, never trying to be anyone they're not. I know it sounds like  a simple thing but it's not an ...

Amanda + Joel’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement
Amanda and Joel contacted me a month or so before their elopement and I was thrilled. I had never shot an elopement before let alone at San Francisco City Hall. It was on a Monday, following up a long weekend of two weddings in two other cities so I was expected to be exhausted when it came to that day but instead it was deeply peaceful, calming and sacred experience. None of the pressure that can exist in a wedding was present, it was only two people fully focused on keeping the moment safe, intimate and authentic with four of their close friends. We had so much fun hitting up Golden Gate Park afterward and swapping favorite restaurants in t ...
