TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR PATH TO GET THERE: Marlene - I was born in Oregon and moved to Europe when I was in my early teens. That is where I met John. Our interest in photography started pretty early on. I fell in love with photography in Art School and John started playing around with his father's film cameras pretty early on.
We fell in love and got married during the same year. We decided to move back to the States and started our photography journey with a cozy home studio in Studio City. We photographed portraits for actors. It was really fun and we enjoyed it for a while but we then decided we wanted to continue our story telling journey and we started styling shoots for ourselves and photographing engagement sessions. Our first wedding couple was a couple who's engagement session we photographed. They loved their photos and decided to book us. We photographed their wedding and loved every little part of it.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? We feel very inspired by light, emotions and by the beauty around us. We try to tell a couple's story in a very timeless way so that the couple can look back at their photos in 30 years and still be able to relive every moment as though no time has passed. People have described our work as very natural, romantic, fresh and luminous.
We've discovered that our love for certain moments has grown as we've grown through the years. I always saw the parent dances as very special but now that I have a baby boy as well I can't keep myself from tearing up like crazy for every mother-son dance. Thank God I can hide behind my camera! Speaking of tears at weddings-my heart skips a beat whenever I see John tearing up. It reminds me every time why he's the one for me.
I guess if I would have to choose one thing I love most about weddings it would be the love you feel through out the day. It's so inspiring and it fuels so much creativity.
