It's about more than hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few pictures. Wedding photography is about carefully crafting and capturing the moments of your big day in a way that beautifully tells the story of your love.

 Wedding & Portrait Photography duo 

we're a mother-daughter

Hey Friend!



Together, we have worked in the wedding industry for over a decade, and make up one incredibly unique mother-daughter fine art wedding photography team. We have documented weddings from the breathtaking West Coast, to the historic East, and have had our work published internationally both in print and online. Our wanderlust hearts have taken us all over the country, capturing love stories, and visiting quaint hometown coffee shops along the way, and even though we've spent most of our lives in a nautical California town, we now call South Carolina home, expanding to the low country of Charleston. We are photographers, directors, curators, and most of all, storytellers for your wedding.

And WE can't wait to get to know you!

We're Laura & Rachel

It was so perfect and they made it exactly how I imagined. We did an elopement wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. They took us all over town and captured all of our moments. The vision they have and how they took action to get the perfect shot was incredible! To top it all off, they had our photos back to us so fast! I am so grateful for the job they did.

Laura and Rachel went above and beyond for our wedding day!”

My husband & I had to cancel our wedding due to COVID, but Laura & Rachel were able to fly out to California (THANK YOU) and take our photos at our venue in our wedding attire. The photos came out AMAZING & so happy we chose to still capture 'our day' as husband & wife. They were both so helpful throughout the process & an overall joy to work with! 

The photos came out AMAZING!”

From the minute we met them we knew they were the ones. They have been so kind and helpful throughout the entire wedding process. Their photos were very creative and they styled our wedding party in a very unique and desirable way. All I can say is that I am IN LOVE. Thank you so much Laura and Rachel. You two are rockstars!

All I can say is that I am IN LOVE.”

They strolled hand-in-hand through a Charleston secret garden. The weather was perfect, everything was in bloom, and the entire city smelled heavenly!

Manicured lawns, massive blooming florals, cascading mountains, all within a Carmel Valley vineyard. This rose garden wedding was breathtaking!

We had a plan she would walk down the stairs and Tyler would meet her on the bed of rose petals, but she froze, one hand covering her mouth...

A modern tropical vibe isn’t what you normally comes to mind living in DC, but Charleston is, and exactly what they wanted for their wedding day.
