We're glad you're here

hello & welcome

I am Theresa, a wedding and anniversary photographer living in Orange County, California. I share my life with my husband Greg (and second shooter), our daughter Makenna, and our corgi we call corgi—even though his name is actually Sheldon. I used to say I didn’t have a creative bone in my body, that was until I picked up a camera. Where I am all started with Greg suggesting to grab our parents fancy cameras and go take pictures. That day I fell in love with the idea of documenting and creating. While I do create images, I don’t call myself a creative. I am a storyteller who eternalizes once in a lifetime moments. Outside of photography, I love exploring and living life with my little family. I could not image my life without Greg. My husband is my best friend and marrying him was and will forever be the best decision of my life. When we say 'we believe in marriage' it's not just a tagline, it truly is something we live.

Why Weddings

We love photography, there is somethings so awe-inspiring about creating art through stills. However, if we just loved the craft, we could photography anything and be happy. We photography 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 are wedding photographers. Greg and I truly believe that what we do matters, and that we am 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, it is not 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. 

Fun Facts

Wanderlust

I love traveling and I am a big believer in the sentiment 'experiences over things'. From long getaways to weekend road trips--anytime I get to get away, I revile in it. Some of my favorite trips have been Colorado, Seattle, Washington D.C., Ireland, and Yosemite.

Harry Potter

I am a little obsessed with Harry Potter, like holding out for 'Hogwarts graduate school of witchcraft and wizardry" obsessed. I'm a Ravenclaw if you were wondering. Greg's a Slytherin, but don't hold that against him ;).

DoctorWho

I LOVE doctor who. Greg even built a Tardis when he proposed in 2013. I didn't even say yes when he asked, all I said was "Tardis". For those fellow whovians, the 10th doctor is my favorite, but 11 is pretty awesome too. 

Fun Facts


Disney

I love all things Disney, Greg and I even honeymooned there, and we highly recommend it. Watching Disney movies is one of our favorite at home dates - Tangled and The Little Mermaid are my two favorites. Up is never on the list though, Greg has banned me from watching Up because I ugly cry so hard we have to pause the movie.

Leslie Knope

I have a masters degree in Public Administration. Leslie Knope may or may not have been the inspiration for that. My goal is to be the Leslie Knope of photography, binders and all. But in all seriousness, I am kind of an administration nerd, especially when it comes to National Parks.

Ireland

I am the proud daughter of Irish Immigrants. My entire family is from Belfast Ireland--even my siblings! And I am the first person in my ENTIRE family to be born in America. I used to hate that I was the only 'American'', but it is now something I am proud of. 

Chick-fil-a is our go-to fast food place. And I know we're not the only ones who seem to crave it most on Sunday!

Leslie Knope is my spirt animal. Ben and Leslie are our relationship goals. It plays in the background at least once a week. Keep your Gilmore Girls and Friends... We're a Parks & Rec family.

Parks & Rec

From the moment Greg and I drove through Yosemite National Park we fell in LOVE. Standing down in the valley and looking at the mountains that towered over us, made us feel so small--we were awestruck and humbled.

Yosemite

Give Greg a pumpkin spice frappuccino and he will be a happy camper. I'm more of an iced skinny caramel macchiato type of girl. Unless I'm tired, then its straight up black iced coffee.
