Getting to know us...
Shauna: I think if I wasn't a photographer, I'd open my own coffee shop and drink lattes all day. I love Netflix and I'm usually binge watching a series while editing photos. We live in Long Beach with our sweet french bulldog, Chubs. (Yes, we're those annoying dog-lovers). So much so that I would have 10 french bulldog puppies at all times if Cody would let me. I think community is essential to a good life, and expanding our community through wedding clients is my favorite. I hope to always make traveling a priority, even if it's just a short drive away. I'm a foodie, but a picky one. I wish I loved seafood but I can't get past the texture. But put a bowl of pasta in front of me and it's game over. I'm goofier than people first realize, and I'm known for good story-telling and imitations. I cry at a good commercial (thank you, Dad, for my sensitive side) and I'm obsessed with DIY projects (of course, Pinterest makes it seem so much easier than it actually is). I fell in love with photography when I was little, but didn't decide to make it a career until after college.
Cody: It is kind of hard to get a feel for a person through a couple of sentences, but here are a few things about me. i like to compete with shauna on who is more obsessed with coffee (can you say addicts?) just about my favorite thing in the world is sharing a meal with people, and will try anything twice... well mostly anything. i have an unhealthy appreciation for the packers and a man-crush on aaron rodgers. i have actually convinced myself we would be good friends, we just need to meet. i enjoy playing games- basketball, racquetball, spike ball, cards, board games, and the list goes on. i hated beer when i first tried it, but now i am one of the those micro-brew snobs. And i love conversations, books, and articles where i learn new things. I also follow too many humorous instagram accounts.
us: We've BEEN MARRIED 5 YEARS AND WE THINK IT'S PRETTY AWESOME. WHICH IS WHY WE LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS. OUR GOAL BEHIND OUR PHOTOGRAPHY IS PRETTY SIMPLE: TELL A STORY THAT IS FITTING FOR EACH AND EVERY COUPLE. BEAUTIFUL LOCATIONS AND SCENERY ARE AWESOME. BUT IT'S THE COUPLES WE MEET, THE FRIENDSHIPS THAT ARE ESTABLISHED THAT MAKE US LOVE WHAT WE DO. WE THINK IT'S A GIFT TO FIND SOMEONE YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR LIFE WITH, AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO START JOURNEY TOGETHER, THAN A FUN CELEBRATION. WE DON'T TAKE OUR JOB FOR GRANTED AND WE ALWAYS FEEL HONORED WHEN A COUPLE WANTS US TO BE A PART OF THEIR DAY. SO IF YOU THINK WE WOULD BE A GOOD FIT, LET'S GRAB A LATTE AND TALK ABOUT HOW AWESOME YOUR WEDDING DAY WILL BE!
