2014 has been such a rad year for us… from Connecticut beach clubs to Arizona Orange Groves to San Diego wine country we’ve had some of our best weddings this year.  Soo many images to choose from, but here are a few of my personal favorites…  Can’t wait to bring in the new year with style from the back woods of Floyd VA!

Every year I think I’m going to do Mini-Sessions but I always end up getting overwhelmed by summer editing catch-up.  This year I took some dedicated family time in Oregon and so I’m feeling great and ready to give some dedicated time to you!  I already have a few slots booked so please let me know ASAP if you want to get in on the fun.  I’ll have my awesome photographer friend Sarah Rico along too who is way more patient with kids than I ;).  AND if I play my cards right my wife Cathy will be there assisting too.  The main goal of the shoot is to get a few solid family poses and a quick individual of each kid…  Feel free to call if you are reading this on your cell and driving (shame on you) – 714-788-1522.    Please come a 15 minutes before your shoot time since there is a little walk down to the beach – If you haven’t been there it’s really lovely, one of my new favorites – TableRock Beach in South Laguna.  **Family size limited to 5 – sorry!

Cant wait to see you there!

Cheers – Kris

rancho bernardo inn WeddingI was ready for the worst.. outdoor wedding and backyard reception and it’s starting to rain right as we head out for bridals on the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn  – with no sign of letting up. It’s a San Diego brides worst nightmare! Emily made the most of it, swapping the schedule, and doing a first look in the rain that had the whole bridal part teared up.  Then off to the ceremony at Maderas Golf Club which made for an incredible backdrop with the dark clouds.  They even drove us around in a golf cart to find the perfect location for coupes shots.  The rain held back for a perfect evening at Christian’s family home.  These two are salt of the earth.

Remember this spectacularly AWESOME couple, really though, how could you not!?!?  Without question Janica and John brought their A GAME in the beauty and style department for their spring vineyard wedding at South Coast Winery in Temecula, California, and they are a RIDICULOUSLY GOOD TIME to boot.  To say that getting to know these two has been RAD would be a major understatement.  We don’t believe that two people could possibly make LOVE look as stylish as these two do.  Congratulations Janica and John!

ONE + ONE  = 4?  When  Ashley, Jeff, Esther and Jason approached us to shoot their engagement session, we were stoked.  When they asked that we shoot it on the same day at the same time, we accepted the challenge.  Oh and did we mention Jeff and Jason are IDENTICAL twins.  Double E-sessions were harder than I thought… double the ideas and half the time!   It was super windy the day of the shoot and our first location ended up being a “bust” so with props in tow (picture 4 beach cruisers strapped to a mini van driving at warp speed down the freeway) we all caravanned over to the Irvine Fields, it couldn’t have been a more AWESOME “plan B”.  We swapped every 10 minutes between couples (thank you to Sarah Rico who was a blessing to have help me on the shoot).  It feels like two different shoots although we wanted to get the best shots for both… Regardless of the challenge it really was a blast. I’m still laughing about this skipping double mint shot. Only wish we had more time to do the other 5 ideas we had!AJEJ414-Edit When we meet with couples, we always ask them to tell us a little bit about their “story”.  We have such RAD clients that it’s always super awesome to hear how they met and ultimately brought them to an epic Burnt Exposure shoot.

In Ashley’s words (and we tend to agree), as identical twins it was only fitting that Jeff and Jason would each find true love just two months apart. Esther and Ashley were already friends when Esther and Jason began dating so when Ashley started dating Jeff, it gave new meaning to the word double dates and before long they became the self proclaimed “Quad.”

Jeff and Jason are both musicians, so when it came time to propose they knew they not only had to do it at the same time but it had to be nothing short of amazing (as if a twin proposal wasn’t epic enough…clearly they are over achievers)!   So how does one…err we mean TWO go about pulling off the proposal of the century?  Why during a performance in front of 3,000 young single adults at a church conference in Arizona State University’s Gammage Auditorium OFCOURSE!  They were slotted to play on Saturday night after Mitt and Ann Romney would address the attendees, and would be followed by performances from Brooke White, of American Idol Fame, and Youtube star Alex Boye.  Talk about PRESSURE!  Needless to say, they pulled it off, even with Ashley running things behind the scenes!  You can check out their RAD proposal that was posted on KSL News in Salt Lake City, UT here  or on Jeff and Jason’s youtube channel

We had such an great time shooting these FANTASTIC FOUR skipping, biking, bubble blowing and even frog kissing!
