Hi everyone! We need your help! We’re creating a blog post for Brides and Grooms who are planning their wedding. And we want to feature real answers! If you can help us by answering this question, we’ll be so grateful! We want to know: Should brides and grooms do a First Look (see each other briefly before their ceremony?) Why or why not? Your input is so appreciated! You may simply comment or DM your answers. Thank you! ☺️
We’re so excited to be hosting our beginning photography workshop tomorrow! When we first created this event, we wanted to host it in a relaxed setting where we could foster community. Somewhere we could get aquatinted or reacquainted with our cameras. We couldn’t think of a better place than to host it at one of Bakersfield’s favorite coffee shops, Cafe Smitten. Here are a few of the many things you will learn at our workshop: *Camera Configuration *Shooting in Manual Mode *Lighting And the best part? We welcome all photography enthusiasts whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out. We’ll chat about photography and enjoy some refreshments while we’re at it! Sign up for our newsletter (link in our bio) to be the first to know when we announce a new workshop, special offers and maybe an occasional photo of Kobe, our golden retriever! 🐾
Classic never goes out of style. Our grooms always make it look so easy in a well fitted tuxedo. Play to your strengths gentlemen, it looks good on ya! Tux: @jerry_finos
The world doesn’t rotate without mother’s. Day in and day out women hand stitch love and affection for the rest of us. Mom’s come in every fashion. So to these women, the ones who have given birth, the invaluable step mother’s, the expecting mother’s, those who adopt and especially those women who watch over us from above the rest of us in the world just want to say THANK YOU. Enjoy your day, you deserve all the flowers, and a glass of wine of course. Sasha, the kids and I love & appreciate you! 😉🌸💐🌷🌹🌺 -Vic PC: @bryansheryl

Being completely transparent with you all today. It’s been a rough few days since I’ve heard the sad news about my abuelita (grandmother) passing. 💔 With my birthday coming up, I get so emotional thinking about it already. Every year, my abuelita used to call me (all the way from Mexico) to wish me a Happy Birthday. Her favorite thing to say to me was to save a slice of cake for her. This year, my birthday will be different not having her call me 😢 She never forgot anyone’s birthdays! And in honor of this incredible woman, I’ll be saving a slice of cake for her so she can enjoy up in heaven. I already miss her sooo much but I’m so glad we made the trip to visit her last year. She was an extraordinary woman and I’m so blessed I got to call her my abuelita. Also, just wanted to thank you all for your sweet & thoughtful messages during this difficult time. It hasn’t been easy, but I’m taking it one day at a time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. -S
The sheer excitement from a soon to be mommy is absolutely beautiful! The “glow” that everyone talks about, is a real thing and it’s not something easily overlooked. The aura that new life brings is breathtaking, accompanied with heartfelt smiles it makes maternity sessions one of the most precious memories ever. We are so thrilled for Ricelia and Tim, they are the most deserving of this moment. So, good luck you two, it’s gonna be one amazing journey!
Calling all photography enthusiasts! Join us Wednesday, May 15th from 6pm-7:30pm at @cafesmitten in Bakersfield for our very first beginner's workshop event, Coffee + Cameras! We are proud to be hosting this intimate workshop that will aim to help you shoot better in manual mode or get more familiar with your camera. Many of the most amazing photographers started out right where you are now, searching for answers and seeking help. You will be surrounded by friendly faces that want to learn just as much as you do in a relaxed and laid-back environment at one of our favorite cafe's! Whether your camera was purchased yesterday, or if it has been collecting dust on the shelf since Christmas, it's time to get (re)acquainted with it and start having fun. So bring a friend, your camera, a notepad, your cell phone (#selfieseason) and let's capture something beautiful together in one of Bakersfield's most attractive new hangout spot. Timeline of Events for the Evening: 6:00pm | Welcome & Refreshments 6:05pm | Intros 6:10pm | Camera Configuration 6:45pm | Q + A 7:00pm | *Photo-Walk Downtown *We will apply our knowledge by going on a walk downtown and photographing each other and our surroundings. PS: The coffee/refreshments are on us. ;) To purchase tickets, click the link “Coffee + Cameras” in our bio. Hope to see you there!
Ricelia, you’re glowing with happiness! We are so happy to call you our friend and we’re beyond excited about this new chapter of your life!! We know you’ll be an amazing mother. Enjoy the final stretch of maternity! 💖
Everyday, we feel grateful to be getting to chase this dream of ours, and each time, we remind ourselves the “why” behind our business. We’re so in love with our jobs, it’s insane! Each and every one of our clients are so special to us and especially love when they become like our family. Making memories, capturing them for you and having fun throughout the process is our absolute favorite. It’s something we don’t take likely. We thank each and every one of you for your support whether it was through liking our posts, hiring us to capture your milestones, or even just viewing our stories from time to time. Your support is the driving force behind it all! Just feeling extremely thankful and thought we’d express how much we appreciate y’all! 😁💛
We never really mentioned it, but this photo placed as a finalist in the Shoot & Share contest! We took this photo on our last trip to Mexico this past July. If you’ve never been to Guanajuato City, it’s definitely a must! This is the city that inspired the landscape for the Pixar movie, Coco. 💛 Truly a remarkable city full of life, color, wonder and inspiration! Now will someone please get married here (or even pretend married is cool with us) just so we can go back and photograph it!? 😂
Cue the confetti, because… Our online store is officially LIVE!!! You guys. It’s been quite a journey getting The Store ready! But it’s been so worth all the late nights, the sweat and tears. Our goal was to create a store that would provide creatives with the tools and resources necessary to elevate their business to the next level. It’s so wonderful to see our hard work come to fruition finally and we’re so excited to get to share it with you all!!! It’s finally here 🎉🎉🎉 Link in Bio
During this season in our business, I look at this is a photo I took while in Rome. Then, I am reminded that the beautiful city certainly wasn’t built in a day and how all things beautiful flourish with time. As we get ready to launch our Online Store tomorrow, I can’t help but feel totally overwhelmed. There were a lot of sleepless nights involved and there were even times where we skipped meals simply because we were so focused. 😅 While we’re keeping this launch a little more low-key, we knew that we wanted to provide something for creatives to help them in their business or daily lives, and tomorrow, you’ll get to enjoy it with us! 🙌

Breanna and Jared are such fun loving and light hearted people. They owned every moment of their session. They are not only absolute gems, they are incredible parents as well. We have said it before and we will say it again, we have the absolute best couples!! Also, it’s Breanna’s birthday! What better way to celebrate than some sneak peaks. Happy Birthday Breanna! 🎊🎂
The biggest misconception is that grooms have the easiest job on wedding day. They are supposed to be poised and calm under pressure from the moment they pop the question until the grand exit on the big day. In fact, before they stand waiting for their bride to be, a man is like a lake. Albeit, calm on the surface, they are teeming with life. It’s the very reason groom prep shots are one of my favorite moments to capture. Can we share a little love for the oh so deserving grooms out there that make the memories just that much more memorable?! -V
