Who we are as Creative Professionals
We are a husband and wife photography and graphic design team. We bring creativity, joy, two unique perspectives, and a sense of calm to every wedding and project. We are humbled to be entrusted with the responsibility of creating treasured family heirlooms. We are honored to witness some of life’s most incredible moments, to connect with amazing people, and to artfully tell their beautiful stories. We aim to create totally fun, relaxed and personalized experiences for each of our clients.
I (Jewel) graduated from the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Massachusetts in 2009 and began professionally working with wedding and portrait clients that same year. Paul received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2007. He worked as a designer in the music industry for several years and brings a distinct set of talents to our business. We now call beautiful Southern California home and absolutely love it here.
Who we are as People
Paul and I fell in love at a wedding and we were married in the summer of 2011 on the Oregon Coast surrounded by family. The most unforgettable opportunity we have had was volunteering for six months at an orphanage in Asia. We believe that loving and serving others is one of the most important parts of life.
Camping, hiking, kayaking and the great outdoors make us happy. I love books, ice cream and everything about the ocean. Paul loves bicycles, diamond sports, and Superman. I grew up in Oregon (but have lived in seven states) and Paul grew up in the D.C area. We enjoy spontaneity and trying new things. We love cuddling up together while watching movies at the end of the day. Most of all, we love to laugh together.
