We're both from Portland, Oregon, but moved down to California for school. We've been together for over two years (getting married this summer!!) and have been involved with photography for over 3 years. Ever since our first date, photography has been something that brings us close together. WHen I asked Marissa to be my girlfriend, I tried to not give my master plan away by saying I wanted to "go on a photography excursion and chat." Ya she was so onto me, and I was into her, but that's besides the point. ;-)

The point is, we love photography. When creating a date or adventure plan, we have to factor in about 2-3 extra hours for stopping and taking pictures, and we spend our free time editing or talking about how excited we are to shoot the next wedding.
