I was at a wedding event this past weekend and one of the keynote speakers said “I would so much rather see a couple put their money towards just a few hours with a great photographer, than settle on a photographer that they don’t love.” I could not have said it better myself. The keepsakes that a great photographer can provide are priceless. Which of course is exactly why I love to brag about Jose Villa so much. His photographs are little works of art and I am always a little jealous of the bride that gets to enjoy them forever…

Togetherness is the perfect way to describe their whole approach to the planning process.  Michelle and Steve researched and assembled a truly talented team of vendors from all over California-  like Brandy Cabral of Bliss Events Productions, Jose Villa, Got Light lighting – that I was so happy to be a part of. From there many of the style elements seemed to fall seamlessly into place.  We built a custom arch for the ceremony from driftwood and worked to make a very organic and asymmetrical design seem effortless.
