There is so much that we can say about this amazing couple. We had the privilege of finally meeting the two of them this last week for their session, and it was a beautiful time indeed.

Andrew+Tesmer both work for the U.N. in Tanzania. Let me just say this…

Hearts. Of. Gold.

They’ve given their lives to fight aids, feed the hungry, and love those who need it most. They are world travelers who smile, laugh, care and love in a capacity rare in this world.

We are deeply blessed to have met them. And are as equally as blessed to be capturing the new adventure of their lives as they become one.

Cheers to that. And cheers to these two lovely people.

Just got an email that awesomely captured Whitney in action from a wedding two weeks ago.

Best part is that the pro behind the camera just so happened to be the three year old flower girl, London. Whitney grabbed these following shots while she was snapping away at her.

That little cutie’s not such a bad little photog.

Thanks Tina for emailing us that awesome image!

OK. Don’t even get me started about how rad these two are.

Sweet kicks. Killer shades. Spunky attitudes.

All around amazing day, with so many killer images to boot. We couldn’t ask for anything more than that.

(not to mention we got to work with the killer Mind|Castle crew. they shot their cinematography and are insanely good at what they do.)

Can’t wait to deliver the rest of this goodness to Aaron+Reanne (those kids are so stinkin’ rad!)

Chris+Jenna’s was out-of-the-hizzy awesome.

Yes. I just made that phrase up.


They were our first Korean wedding with a paebaek ceremony that we’ve had the opportunity to shoot. Filled with such rich tradition. I get very jealous of people with rich traditions.

So good.

I’m about to blow this blog up. Stay tuned friends.
