Ricky

As the lead videographer, I take pride in creating cinematic films that reflect each couple’s unique personality. My love for videography came from my knack for collecting and using vintage camera equipment. I’m particularly fascinated by the classic look of 8-millimeter film and often incorporate aspects of it into my work. I’m typically found drinking large amounts of espresso, listening to true crime podcasts, or brushing up on American history. Other passions of mine include philosophy, motorcycles, reading, and painting.

 

Laura

As the lead photographer, I take care to ensure that each photo is a unique and beautiful work of art. In addition to photography, I harbor a deep love for fashion – I am always exploring new styles, tracking new trends, and changing hair colors! Along with southwestern, earthy styles and ‘70s vibes, I love farmers markets, old records, and vintage knick-knacks. When I’m not perusing plant shops or wandering the outdoors, you can find me rewatching  Moonrise Kingdom, my favorite Wes Anderson film.
