Usually when we meet couples it is after they are engaged and planning for their big day BUT everyone once in a while we are honored to be part of the proposal planning and surprise!
We started talking with Heidi a couple months ago about her surprise bonfire proposal to Loydeen at the Bahia Resort.
🔥❤️🔥
From the start we had so much fun brainstorming together and you could feel her love beaming to have this once in a lifetime moment all come together. The anticipation was like electricity in the air as their children and close friends that had not seen since the pandemic awaited their arrival. At last, we all saw the "soon to be engaged couple" walking down the boardwalk towards the bonfires, Loydeen having no idea what was about to happen. After a few moments of shock and taking in their loved ones, Heidi shared her heart and asked Loydeen to marry her.
💍❤️💍
As photographers and videographers we are so grateful to be witnesses to this type of love and joy. 2020 and 2021 have thrown us some curve balls to say the least, and to end the year with a surprise like this was truly serendipitous. Cheers to following your heart and being surrounded by the ones we love!

Why does a bride carry a bouquet of flowers... well first of all because they are beautiful, right? 💐
But we love knowing where traditions were born and bouquets have a few legacies of their own.
👑
In Roman times the flowers symbolized new beginnings, fidelity and hope of fertility.
💫
In the middle ages, strong-smelling herbs and spices were believed to fight off evil spirits, bad luck, ill health and help mask body odor (yikes).
👸
Most popular though is the Victorian age, when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert, she carried a tussie-mussie (a tiny round clutch of flowers). 💗Lovers often sent different flowers to express their love and each flower meant something a little different. Including flowers at the wedding helped to connect this special flower sharing to their future. This was the bride’s “flower” for the rest of her life.
🌸
We absolutely LOVE bouquets!!! The bouquet gives the bride a beautiful prop to play with and flowers will actually compliment the figure in so many ways.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you love bouquets as much as Queen Victoria, the Romans or us?

A beauty to doing what we do is having the ability to relive our couples anytime we need some hope and joy. We lived the moments right along side of them. We aren’t there simply just to take photos or record video, we are there to listen and take in the magic of their day, capturing lifelong memories for them and realizing over the years that we have created life long memories for ourselves too.

As video editors it's always so amazing to combine the heartfelt vows spoken individually one after the other and fuse their words together for a magical glimpse into their love story.

Their love story continues...”He said - She said”
❤️
"Samantha is more than just my future wife; she's my partner, my best friend, and the love of my life. I cannot imagine spending my life with anyone other than her. From the moment I first saw her, I knew that there was something spectacularly special about her and I had to get to know her."

"I love how Daniel is with my family and friends, so open and wanting to talk to them and get to know them. He gets along with everyone and just accepts everyone for who they are. I love his drive and motivation within himself and that he always goes after what he wants. There are not enough words in the world to state everything I love about him but I love who I am when I am with him."

We absolutely love getting to know our couples and finding out how they met... Samantha met the love of her life (Daniel) on a trip to San Diego attending a conference for sororities and fraternities. The speaker at the conference one the first day said to the attendees, "some of you will make great connections. you will meet people that have great job experience, you will meet people with great leadership experience, you will make life long friends, and some of you may find the love of your life." She thought to herself "who comes to a conference to find a boyfriend?"... well as fate had it, she did meet the love of her life. You just never know when you will be in right place at the right time. More of their love story coming soon!

04/14/2020

A fun way to include the important women in your life on your wedding day is to have each of them help you when you are getting ready to officially transform into a bride. Your mom buttoning your dress and putting on your veil, your future mother-in-law and your step-mom helping with your jewelry, your bridal party adjusting your train, these are the women who have shaped you and your relationship and there is nothing more special than including them in these bridal traditions. A fun tip we always suggest for these special photos is that everyone is fully dressed before the bride so they are ready for the camera and wearing all those dresses specifically chosen for your wedding day.

It may seem odd to be kissing with a computer on our laps... but actually our relationship and love ❤️ for each other really ignited over our passion for technology and visual arts from the get go. 👩🏻‍💻 👨‍💻
Remembering back to our first MAC 💻 in 2002 in our one bedroom apartment and the fun we had creating graphics, making videos, and editing photos, it’s hard to believe how far we have come as a couple, business and as artists over the years. We don’t tend to make any new years resolution but this photo reminds us of where it all started from and where it all has led. Here is to the New Year, 2020 (woot woot) and staying focused on the things that really matter! 📷

Hold her like you can never let her go ❤️
our editing style is usually all about color but we actually are very drawn to too. The feel, the mood, the moment can translate a different story. We actually ask our couples how much they love black and white before we delve into editing... and what we have learned is our couples are drawn to the color imagery that we create but they love when we dabble a little black and white here in there.

We tell our couples all the time that we see the big moments and the small moments... this is the biggest advantage of having two photographers capture one of the most important days of your lives! 💍📷❤️
The veil flowing in the wind, your husband’s hands on your waste, how can you choose which moment to see so why not see both of them!

Happy Fall Officially!!! This year has flown by and we have still been a little MIA on social media, which we tend to do when we are in editing marathon mode from our busy summer of weddings and those two big moves for us! October weddings are in full swing and today we are bouncing out the door to watch these two take their 11 year relationship to the next level as husband and wife! In love with each other, video games, dining out, and their two dogs... it’s going to be so exciting to see them tie the knot at the historic Mission Brewery downtown! We will try to get back into posting more about what we have been up to this year but as usual it’s been all about happy couples celebrating with the ones they love!!!

Happy Friday!! 🥂
We have been kind of MIA for the last month because the holidays are the one time of the year we briefly step away from the editing desk, take a small break from technology and refuel ourselves with creativity and inspiration.
And we can’t believe our 2019 wedding season kicks off tomorrow with this fun duo! 📷💍🎥
And after an unusual week of non-stop rain... a forecast of 77 🌞 is just what this bride and groom ordered for their Southern California wedding and we can’t wait to enjoy the sunshine with them all day long!

You are married and you know you want photos and so does your family and wedding party! 💍+👨‍👩‍👧‍👧👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦=📷
Photos with your parents, photos with your entourage ...once all these photos are captured, we understand that the newlyweds are ready for what we call a “smile break”. And the truth is, up until that last photo with the wedding party, our have been dreaming about amazing images of them together. We just take a step back, breathe and love to bring couples back into the moment. To remind them that these few minutes with us will be their only time alone for the next several hours and time for them to take in the day. Look at the sky, feel the breeze, just taking a walk together hand and hand can feel so good! This is their time! ❤️👰🏻🤝🤵🏻
After this photo, the bride said, "wow, this is all so worth it!” Being a wedding photographer is about so much more that just snapping images, it’s about understanding how you feel in a moment along with how you will feel looking back at the moments that you will call your wedding day. .

Holly + Mat - Our Story

We grew up 2,300 miles apart, Midwest girl meets So-Cal boy... both drawn to photography, videography, laughs and nature. It wasn’t long before we photographed a family members wedding and fell in love with documenting couples and families, the stories of their lives that would forever be memories of our lives too. We are located in sunny San Diego, we love to hike at Torrey Pines, indulge on the local food and beer scene, and are rarely without out cameras. We would love to connect with you and find out more about your story.

ABSOLUTE DREAM & PURE PERFECTION!!! Not all heroes wear capes. Holly and Mat of Sutography are more than we could ever have dreamed of! Picture this, you get engage during Comic-Con 2019 (50th anniversary) and you plan for a wedding the week to follow Comic-Con 2020, then a pandemic hits and you no longer can have the wedding you planned for the past year, or even the engagement shoot. Well, as undesired the circumstances, Holly and Mat rolled with the punches, were flexible, accommodating, and the epitome of utter professionals. They not only recommended a new, allowed location that maintained the social distance requirements, but helped us forget that we were in the midst of a pandemic in addition to our insecurities regarding photography. They make you feel comfortable as if you've known each other for YEARS! And the previews of our wedding photos and engagement shoot are absolutely stunning! Those sneaks peaks let us know that we DEFINITELY made the right decision. If you're looking for a photographer/videographer, this husband and wife duo are true heroes! Had I the opportunity to sing their praises every day, I would do just that! Book them for whatever the occasion, and you will not be disappointed.
