Hello there! We are so glad you are here.
We are Melanie and Manuel aka, Manny, a husband and wife photography team and that’s us on our own wedding day! It was, hands down, one of the best days of our lives!
We feel SO much joy getting to celebrate and document the beginning of our couples journeys. After each wedding, our favorite thing to do is grab a beer and talk about how awesome your day was. Melanie is the one who will cry alongside your guests, and encourage the soft and tender moments, while Manny is the one who will keep things light-hearted and fun, and ensure that Melanie always has fresh tissues and film.
One of our favorite things to do is travel the world together. We have been to 6 of the 7 continents… so far. Our adventure began 13 years ago on a trip to New Zealand, Australia, and Thailand. We’ve been inseparable ever since! We’ve got the cutest white Labrador, Max, who goes just about everywhere with us. In fact, we’ve driven cross country at least three times, just so he could go too.  On the rare weekend we have off you’ll probably find the three of us taking a road trip somewhere that will let us get lost in nature. We think old things are better than new things and hugs are better than handshakes (this means you should probably prepare yourself for a hug when we meet).
Maybe a photo on our website caught your eye or you adore dogs and sangria too? Even better if it’s both! We would love to hear all about your story and see if we might be a good fit to work together. We want to smile, laugh, cry and celebrate with you but mostly we want to create moments that you’ll love for a lifetime.

 

 

This is us on the evening before our wedding. We know how excited you must be for your own (we sure were!). We’d love to get to know each other so we thought we’d share 6 totally random facts about us:
1. Manny really is Handy Manny. So far he’s successfully built every bed, table, and couch Melanie has dreamed up.
2. We know the lyrics to most of Jack Johnson’s songs and love singing them (off key) in the car together. If there is one thing we know we will never be, it’s wedding singers.
3. We are obsessed with SugarFish sushi. It’s our FAVORITE date spot!
4. We fall in love with most countries we visit and we always talk about how we could move there one day.
5. We are best friends. After 13 years of working together almost every day, we still hate being apart.
6. We love designing spaces and have renovated every place we’ve lived in. Someday we plan to restore our dream house together.
