Mary & Taylor are one of our very first couples. And for years we had hoped to give something back to them. When we met for the first time to discuss photography for their wedding, coffee turned into lunch, lunch turned into dinner, and dinner turned into cocktails. Five years later, we were thrilled for them to accompany us to San Francisco where once again, we sipped on cocktails and let the day blend into the night.

"Growing up I had the opportunity to work with photographers over the years. However, I can not say the same about my husband. It felt as if he lived in the dark ages and never have his photo taken. Anytime we would work with Photographers he was rigid as a board. Photographers always have a way with making you feel special in the moment but it often times feels disingenuous and disconnected.
It never felt like we where having our photos taken. We were always talking, joking and engaging with Andrew and Mashaida the entire shoot. They really took the time to connect with us and learn who we were. It felt like we had known Andrew and Mashaida our entire lives. They made the entire time feel effortless. They were able to capture every rare and genuine moment along the entire journey. 
We had so many perfectly captured moments. When we looked at our photos for the first time it felt like it was our story. They helped capture a special moment in time and we can now relive those moments for the rest of our lives. "

“Our rapport was so good, our friends couldn’t believe that we had just met, and even thought they were part of the wedding party.”

"Andrew and Mashaida are hands down the best photographers imaginable, and the outcome of our wedding photos turned out to be the definition of perfection. They made us look like our best selves by directing us on poses that made us feel natural and comfortable. Andrew and Mashaida go beyond just capturing photos. They don't think of their clients as clients - they care for them as friends and it shows. We continue to stay in touch to this day, and I know we aren't the only ones who had such a positive experience."

“I remember thinking to myself ‘WOW, these are pictures my grandchildren will one day have.’”

Andrew and Mashadia have such a keen eye for interesting poses and settings. Their creativity and direction they took everything was magical and all the credit goes to Andrew and Mashaida. They are true artists. They put so much love and care into their craft, which resulted in pictures we will hold onto and cherish forever."

“Andrew and Mashaida have such a beautiful editorial eye, helping us relax and feel natural while being able to capture our personalities flawlessly.”

"I’ll just state the obvious —Mashaida and Andrew are incredibly, insanely talented. The way they capture every moment is so beautiful and intentional, capturing every detail without you ever noticing they’re there. Not only that, but they genuinely make you feel so elegant, which is such a comfort because the last thing you want to worry about is how you’re going to look. Naturally, 
I will always think our wedding photos were the best, but what I found surprising was how many friends, family members, even distant coworkers went out of their way to tell me how much they loved our photos as well!"

“They are true artists that are extremely knowledgEable and know how to capture images in a very elegant and timeless way.”

“As a professional wedding planner and decorator I have worked with Andrew and Mashaida not only for a client’s wedding but for my own wedding as well! They are not only professional, but extremely kind people that will make sure their clients are comfortable throughout the entire process. I can’t thank them enough or explain how much we loved our wedding photos."

“When we look at our pictures now, it’s like we are reliving that day. The emotions that the images evoke are so real.”

"Andrew and Mashaida truly captured the essence of our day and it's so fun to see it through their eyes. Everything from the candid photos that capture our joy to the posed portraits and detail shots that capture the elements of our day were just perfect.  In the end, the tangibles are priceless, but they truly provided us with an experience that we won't soon forget. We started the wedding journey looking for a vendor to take pretty photographs, and walked away with priceless legacy worthy tokens and dear dear friends whom we'd open our home to any time."
