Choosing a photographer is one of the MOST important choices when planning a wedding. The way your photographer captures moments is the way you will remember your wedding 20 years down the road when most of your memories are too faint to recall.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out our website! We're a husband & wife wedding photography team based in Redlands, Ca, a small town about an hour east of LA. We strive to tell our couple's love stories in the most authentic and creative way possible. Hit that arrow on the right to see a few things important to us :)
We're a husband & wife wedding photography team based in Southern California. Our goal is to deliver authentic photographs from your wedding day that will hold up as the years go by, and one way we do that is by becoming friends with you! We're not picky with who we make friends with, we only ask that you're fun people!
So who are we? Well, I (Brett) have a Bachelor's degree in Photojournalism, so candid, natural vibes are what I'm trained to capture. Hunting for good light is one of my FAVORITE things to do and when I find it, my inner 8-year-old-schoolgirl-giddiness comes out. Tori (my other half) is my partner in crime on wedding days, but she's also a certified RN so she'll be able to administer some quality medical care if the situation were to arise ;) Not only is she a killer 2nd shooter, she handles timelines like a boss and will help you achieve the BEST schedule for your wedding day. Together, we make up over 20 years in the wedding industry!
We're based in Redlands, Ca, but we shoot ALL over the world. We've been fortunate enough to shoot weddings everywhere from Mexico to France. Our little 3-year-old Harper has been to several countries already and we don't plan on slowing down any time soon, even with our little girl Elliette due in February!
Also, we get it, hiring a wedding photographer is a very personal decision. So please take your time and make sure your personalities mesh well with each other! After all, you'll most likely spend the MOST time with your photographers on your wedding day. Even more than your soon-to-be spouse! If you think we may be a good fit for you, please let us know and we'll schedule a time to sit down over a cup of coffee or a cold beer.

Faith plays a large part in our lives and we love our church (Citizens). Wedding season can get a little busy and football season can get a little lazy but we try our best to make as many Sundays as possible. I often shoot photos as a volunteer!
Our pride & joys. Watching them grow these last few of years has been the best. We always worried that having children would deter us from wanting to do awesome things in life, but its done the opposite! Now all I wanna do is show them the world and teach them how to appreciate everything, even if its foreign to them.
"We used Brett and Tori for our Palm Springs wedding and I can't say enough good things. They are the cutest couple who work so well together and make you feel super comfortable. It was super hot the day of our wedding and they were super accommodating to me constantly needing breaks to get in the a/c! The groomsmen weren't the easiest to deal with as they went a little heavy on the pregame drinks, but they totally laughed it off and worked with it. What they were able to capture on our wedding day I cant even put into words. Every single small but significant moment was captured beautifully. They are hands down the best photographers who could've ever asked for."
"Years before I met my future wife I knew I'd do anything to have Brett and Tori shoot my wedding. Luckily when I proposed, they were just as excited as I was to have them make the trip to the South of France for our special day. Their entire team, both Brett and Tori and their videographer Joey were amazingly optimistic, energetic and perfectly captured our day - while battling insane jetlag and exhaustion from their trip. They captured our day as only they could have in a way we never could have dreamed. I regularly catch my wife looking through our wedding album and watching our wedding video almost daily. Our only regret is that we can't get married again to have them shoot that too - or can we?"
"I have been obsessed with Brett and Tori's work for the last couple years now and knew I only wanted them as my photographers when it was my turn to walk down the aisle. I knew nothing else about my wedding other than knowing I wanted them to capture my favorite day. Not only did the pictures come out as perfect as I knew they would, but Brett and Tori are seriously amazing people to be around. I felt like I could be vulnerable with them the moment we met. I feel so honored that we were lucky enough to have them be apart and capture the best day of our lives."
"So.Cal's best kept secret is out! Choosing this husband and wife photographer team was the best decision we've made for our wedding. Their photos are stylish, unique and out-of-the-box. They made us look like a part of an art piece/movie stars. Brett and Tori have great personalities and we instantly felt like we've been friends with them for long time. My husband (who hates having photos taken) felt so comfortable with Brett and Tori. As a result, the engagement photos came out so natural and lovely. We used our engagement photos as part of our wedding decoration and our guests and my picky family (my parents both studied arts) could not stop talking about how great it looked. They were fantastic on the day of the wedding as well. They made friends with both of our families, bridesmaids, flower girls...and the photos came out so beautiful."
"I will definitely go to Brett and Tori for any of my professional photography needs. I had my wedding in Cherry Valley, California and I live in Houston, Texas. From start to finish, they were so easy to get ahold of. They were also quick to answer any questions via email or text. I loved our engagement and wedding photos. Everyone loved them too even my very picky friend. What they produced for us was not just beautiful photos but artistic photos as well. I cannot rave enough about them. I also loved working with them. They were fun and easy to work with which is why a lot of photos did not look forced. It was like hanging out with our cool friends except we were paying them and they were taking photos of us."
"We did not have the "traditional" wedding. I was 7 months pregnant with our 2nd child and got married at the Beverly Hills Courthouse with just immediate family. In total, we had 9 children between the two families so it was chaotic to say the least. We also had a really strict time constraint between taking pictures in our Venice neighborhood and then moving over to BH on a Friday afternoon. Brett and Tori really outdid themselves and were SO amazing to work with! They kept a very calm energy throughout and really knew how to work with all the kids. On top of it, the pictures came out FANTASTIC! I could not have been happier with everything."

After your wedding, Brett & Tori will back up your files in multiple locations and begin the post processing. They ask for up to 90 days after your event to finish and deliver your photographs, but they've never taken that long. Every image delivered goes through their editing process. A typical 8 hour wedding will produce anywhere between 400-800 images.
Brett studied photography and received his Bachelor of Arts in Visual Journalism from Brooks Institute of Photography. Brett took all of his training and brought it into his business, teaching Tori everything he know along the way. Together, they focus on authentic moments that will stand the test of time.
