Lauren + Ryan’s Los Angeles Wedding at Wattles Mansion

Weddings

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 and I consider them one of the bravest couples I know. So, you know their wedding was going to be all those things. Heartfelt and creative, it was one damn good party. At one point the MOH mentioned that Ryan and Lauren should give advice to other couples as they’ve been together as long as most married couples. Their wisdom, self-awareness and intentionality radiates and sets such a beautiful example to their community. We consider ourselves the luckiest to know them. And to actually know them. It’s a true honor. Okay enough reading, view on!

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 ...

Aparna + Nathaniel
One of the reasons we love photographing weddings is the sheer range of emotions and events that happen in one day. With that said, it's safe to say that this wedding exhibited that range like no other we've ever photographed. And not because of the epic location (although the Asian Art Museum was in fact, spectacular) but because of it was full of the widest range of moments: holy, hilarious, awe-inspiring, sentimental, and honest. We felt two families coming together like never before. We saw two people commit to the rest of their lives steeped in tradition yet originality and creativity. Needless to say, we really hope you take the time to ...

Best of 2016
[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 repre ...
