What's up eveyone! We're The Buchanan's, or just Maxx + Bre. We live in San Clemente, CA and we point cameras at people, places, and things for a living. We started Gin and July with the intention of offering our own take on wedding photography. Dedicated to keeping a relaxed atmosphere, our focus is to candidly capture the moments of your day to create an authentic visual narrative that is teeming with feeling. Our work boasts clean lines, vibrant color palettes, and truthful tellings of every scene. Our intention is to create an immediate emotional connection to each individual photograph.

    The absolute best photographers

    Truly cannot say enough great things about Maxx and Bre. We chose them as our wedding photographers almost 3 years ago, and weren’t able to get married until last month (thanks COVID!). Throughout all of our COVID postponements and headaches, they were so responsive and understanding, which made such a difference (you’d be surprised how many wedding vendors don’t actually care about you). Add on that, they’re just super nice and fun people, AND their work is simply incredible. I’d recommend them to anyone, for engagement and wedding photography.

We are willing to shoot your wedding 30% off if you are willing to trust us to shoot your entire day in black and white. We would be shooting film, along with digital, throughout the day at no additional cost to you (a $200-$500 value). You will receive the same final product as any other regularly priced wedding would. Please inquire if you have any other questions about this promotion! Not every wedding will fit the bill for this promotion, but if all the stars align and we feel that your wedding day concides with our vision, we would love it if you trusted us with our grayscale endeavor.

Hi guys! I'm Maxx. Husband, father, coffee enthusiast, pizza connoisseur, and travel junkie. I buy too many cameras and I like to deny the fact that I have an affinity for shoes, jackets, and sunglasses.

Bre Buchanan

Hey everyone! I'm Bre. Elementary school teacher slash photographer extraordinaire. Napping queen, master multi-tasker, and all around super mom (can you tell that Maxx wrote this?). Always in search of a great dirty chai and could live on a Mexican beach surviving solely on shrimp tacos.
