So glad you're here

hello & welcome

I'm Theresa, a wedding and anniversary photographer living in Orange County, California! I love laughing until my stomach hurts, spending time outdoors and Disney! I also consider Leslie Knope to be my hero, even if she is fictional. I spend my days with my high school sweetheart turned husband, Greg, who also doubles as my second shooter! We share our life with our daughter Makenna Grace and our corgi, we call corgi—even though his name is actually Sheldon. I was made to explore and will take advantage of any opportunity I have to travel. favorite spots have been Yosemite, Colorado, DC, and Disneyworld! As much as I love to travel, I also love spending nights cuddling on the couch with Greg while we split our favorite dessert (cookies and cream ice-cream) and catch up on some of our favorite TV shows or watching a movie!

Why Weddings

We love photography, there is something so awe-inspiring about creating art through stills. However, if we just loved the craft, we could photograph anything and be happy. We photograph weddings for more than just my love of the craft; we photograph weddings because we believe in marriage. And no, that is not just a tagline we say because we're wedding photographers. Greg and I truly believe that what we do matters and that we are creating images that will help get you through the rocky moments. We document moments and capture emotions so that when you have your first fight (or your 5oth), you can look at that framed wedding image on your wall and remember your why. We believe in marriage and what it stands for, and we believe that it should be eternalized through artfully crafted images. To us, marriage is the greatest journey we take during this short lifetime. Marriage is not always easy, it does require sacrifice, but like every grand adventure, the journey is worth it.

Our Love Story

Greg and I have a love story that in anyone else's eyes is nothing special; however, in our eyes, it is the most extraordinary love story in history-- because it is ours. We met in 2007 at Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt where I worked part time with my best friend. He came in one night with a friend who also worked with us. Being a silly high school girl I made a point to tell him that he had a big butt and that is where our love story started. On one of our first dates, Greg took me to Fullerton Arboretum to impress me with his photography skills, it was my first time picking up a camera and I was hooked. From this moment photography became a huge part of our relationship. Seeing that I was still in high school (read poor) dates consisted of going to random places and taking pictures. The years passed and we had more adventures and fell more in love with each other. In 2013 we assumed we were adult enough (what ever that means) to start thinking about the next step in our relationship and a month later in February Greg got down on one knee. On Valentines weekend none the less, which is basically the only way he knew he would surprise me because I had always told him how I DISPISED Valentine's day. In March of 2014, we got married in Fullerton in front of our family and friends and took the trip of a lifetime to Disneyworld. The next two years of our marriage we spent really getting to know what it meant to be married and what 'for better or worse' really meant. We also traveled, we visited Colorado, D.C., Seattle, Utah, and sprinkled in a ton of weekend road trips along the way. In May of 2016, we both graduated, Greg with his bachelors in Project Management and me with my masters in Public Administration. We are so proud of this moment because it took a lot of heart, a lot of tears and a lot of work to get where we were. Again, thinking we had hit the next step of adulthood, we decided it was time to add a third adventure buddy. In May of 2017, we welcomed our daughter Makenna Grace to the mix. And the rest of our love story is yet to come. All I know is that I love doing life with Greg and I owe a lot to Golden Spoon. 

Personally, I think this world would be a better place, if Chick-Fil-A had no calories--especially their Oreo milkshake!

We are total dog people--and extra points if it's a corgi. We're not biased, but our corgi, that we call Corgi, may be the most adorable of them all ;).

I LOVE diet doctor pepper, even though I know it is bad for me. I'm not an alcohol person, so doctor pepper is my 'cold one' after a hard day.

I have a killer sweet tooth (thanks dad!). Baked goods and ice cream are my vices--even more so if they're cookies and cream flavored!

If you haven't already been able to tell from my wardrobe, website, and this background picture, I'll make it even more clear, I LOVE the color mint! But, the blue kind, not the green ;).

Carnations

I cannot walk into Target without picking up new post-its, a journal, or pens. I have more 'to-do' list journals, than actual 'to-do' list, but I can't help myself around pretty paper goods! And yes, 90% of the time they are in mint.

Greg and I have a huge heart for animals and conservation. Greg even proposed at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, in front of the giraffes.

Animals

We have TWO, yes two, cupboards full of mugs. Which is ironic since we're minimalist in every other aspect. We like to collect them from each place we travel. I also would never say no to a hot coffee inside those mugs.
