We are known for
Judy is an awesome presence at a wedding. She is great at posing couples that are uncomfortable with photography, but can make photos look natural and real (mostly by helping our couple be natural and real). She is happy and excited to capture moments, bringing a feminine charm and touch. She has mastered the art of directing family without appearing bitchy. Judy does family photography aside from weddings, so she has a connection with children and is great with posing small groups. She loves loves loves her new baby daughter Remy and adores her two kitty cats.
Gavin is artistic and also technical, but is a big nerd and dork. He is the experimenter and boundary-pusher, the mad wizard and the striving artist. He is an engineer in mind, an artist at heart, and a warm soul in person. He lives for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, target shooting, watching (or making) movies, coding, and doing anything artistic. The consummate professional, Gavin's the reason we've never lost a single image, delivered every wedding on time, and put out every fire that happens when shooting a wedding. He relishes in the small moments of life, enjoys a good scotch or IPA, and loves Judy and Remy more than a thousand breaths could ever whisper.
Judy and Gavin are yin and yang, Bonnie and Clyde, and sometimes Beavis and Butthead. It's seriously 1+1=3. We heavily discount our Judy+Gavin package because we love working together and we love the images we create together. Judy knew she wanted to marry Gavin when he accepted her for everything that she was. Gavin knew he wanted to marry Judy when he trusted her enough to put her name on the business account! Not many people can work, live, play, love, and grow together, so we feel blessed that we have that in our work, home, and hearts.

Judy and Gavin are awesome! We booked them for our July 2016 wedding after initially booking a different photographer for our big day. After we had our engagement session with the different photographer, we realized the quality of the photos and the professionalism of the photographers did not meet our expectations for what we wanted on our big day. Judy and Gavin did photo/video at my brother-in-law's wedding the year before ours. Since my husband and I were in the bridal party at that wedding, we were able to see Judy and Gavin and their team in action on their wedding day. The difference was night and day. Judy and Gavin are super personable and professional and made this aspect of wedding planning very low stress. They were able to redo our engagement session on relative short notice - this was around the time when Judy was about 8 months pregnant and wasn't working extensively in preparation for their baby, yet she still insisted on joining us through UCLA and Downtown LA to make sure everything turned out perfectly (which it did!). At the engagement session we realized how professionals work - efficiently and creatively, while making us feel comfortable. Back then we already knew we made the right choice to switch over. However, on our wedding day they solidified that feeling. Weddings are very stressful but they made sure everything on our wedding day went smoothly. We had a large bridal party of 22 people and my husband and I both have large families, but Judy was able to help plan the day's timeline and most importantly she was very vocal in executing it. They were personable with our wedding party and made sure to direct people as needed. We were able to get all of the footage we wanted and it all turned out great!Sent on 10/20/2016

I have seen Judy and Gavin's work for many years. They have the most creative, fun, artistic ways of capturing photos. I knew when I have a wedding someday, I would want them to be my photographer.Sent on 09/02/2019
We contacted Judy and Gavin and got a response immediately. They were very easy to contact through phone, email, text messages, and were very accomodating of our schedules when it came to scheduling a meet-up and for the engagement shoot. When we met with them, they were very clear with what they offered. We went with their photos package for two photographers.
During our wedding and the engagement shoot, Judy and Gavin were wonderful at handling the timeline of events, the order of photos with families and friends transitioned smoothly and efficiently, they were quick to suggest areas with best lighting and locations for photo opportunities, and they made the process very easy for us by directioning us ways to pose.
They are very quick at providing teasers photos on the same day! My husband and I were impressed!! We were able to access the photos on their website, download them, and share them with friends and families. Within a couple weeks, we received all of our photos.
I had a phenomenal experience working with Judy and Gavin. They made it very fun and easy for us. All of the photos came out excellent! They have exceeded all of our expectations and really took care of us. I felt I was in trusted hands the entire time. I highly recommend them to all of my friends and family. We will cherish all these photos throughtout our lifetime! We can not thank you enough!

Judy and Gavin were the BEST decision we made for our wedding! We were so lucky to have found them. From the very first moment Judy and I chatted on the phone, I just knew that they were going to be our photographer/videographer! We clicked and talked for more than an hour like old friends. Due to our busy schedule, Judy and Gavin accommodated us and drove all the way down to SD for our engagement photo session, which turned out amazing! Our friends and family could not stop complimenting on how beautiful the pictures turned out and how good they made me look :)
Our wedding was multi-cultural and up to the very last minutes, there were changes (not from my end but from the parental end) that would make me cry if it was not for Judy who talked me through the stress and helped come up with a timeline that would allow all of our traditions (my hubby is Indian and I'm vietnamese) to be carried out while allowing plenty of time of our pictures.
The day of was as smooth as one can imagine. Since the groomsmen and my then-fiance were getting ready at a different hotel while I and the girls were getting ready at my mom's house, Gavin and Judy split their times and were able to take pictures of all of us in the prep stage. they worked soooo hard throughout the day to make sure that every important moment was captured yet they were not invasive. Judy, Gavin and Judy's brother, Steven, were like ninjas. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church and the church was very strict on photography. Yet, without us knowing, they were able to take many beautiful pictures without being in our faces or bothering the priest.
They stayed late into the night for even more pictures. It must have been a 12-hour day for all three and there was always a smile on everyone's faces.
The way Judy and Gavin worked on our wedding day really shows us how much they love what they do, how much they love sharing their clients' most special day, how well they do their job and how professional they truly are (there was absolutely no drinking on their part during the entire time!).
On top of all that, they were definitely reasonably priced! Trust me, i did plenty of research, met with quite a few photog/videographers before I met them. they will go that extra mile for you to make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible and your pictures are as precious and unique as you and your future hubby are :)
