We believe personal connection is nourishing. It’s one of the main reasons we photograph weddings — beautiful photography depends on mutual trust and a sense of familiarity and comfort. We’re endlessly interested in and inspired by the uniqueness of your experiences. Rather than simply looking in from the outside, we immerse ourselves in your story. We strive to know you and understand your needs. Building this relationship helps us balance style and elegance with intimacy and a sense of calm that allows emotion to surface naturally in each photograph. 

Our approach to every photoshoot and wedding is completely bespoke. We work to support your vision, offer our expertise along the way, and remain flexible to changing plans and last-minute needs. We always have more than one camera slung over our shoulder and have an artist’s sense for finding a moment. Sometimes that moment needs a digital photograph, other times 35mm or medium format film, but we’re always ready for everything. The result is a polished collection of true-to-life, timeless images that are as unique as they moments they highlight.

"With uniquely complementary approaches to photography, we shoot with purpose, building a consistent narrative as your story unfolds."

As a husband-and-wife team, we’ve been photographing editorials, portrait sessions and weddings in California and throughout the world, since 2015. Collaborating with top designers and creatives, we invite our personal interests in fashion, design, travel, and — of course — art to shape the modern, sophisticated images that define our work.

We bring honesty, elegance, and raw beauty to every photograph through our careful use of natural light, intentional composition, and rich textures. With uniquely complementary approaches to photography, we shoot with purpose, building a consistent narrative as your story unfolds. We remain aware of the movement within a scene and the way in which the surrounding space or landscape reflects, transforms, and refines every image that is being created. Our secret is a perfect balance between our connection with our client, and our technical prowess and artistic vision.

Juan is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. His interest in photography, and his experience in a darkroom, began with a point-and-shoot camera as a teenager and has continued to develop over the last 22 years. Educated and professionally trained in cinematography, Juan has an extensive background in film, both in photography and cinema. He began his career as a director of photography, helping shape documentaries and series productions, before moving to still imagery. Juan’s work has been exhibited in Cinematheque Française (Paris) and Centro Cultural San Martin (Buenos Aires) and has won numerous awards, including a Martin Fierro (Argentina's Emmy Award). Though Argentina’s sprawling lowlands of The Pampas and the towering Patagonia Mountains are no longer in his backyard, the country’s beauty and pace of life continue to inspire his photography.



Juan’s experience creating documentaries pairs with his countless hours in the darkroom to give him a unique understanding of the art of photography. He is an expert in both studio and natural lighting and holds a deep knowledge of photographic stocks, film developing techniques, scanning processes, framing, and even curation. Juan’s understanding of these intricacies, often overlooked in a digital world, helps shape his meticulous attention to detail with every image and throughout the nuanced process of editing.

Talia grew up in New York and found herself inspired to pick up a camera while studying journalism in New York City. The city’s vibrance caught her eye, and she quickly found herself searching for candid, joyful moments to capture on every bridge and avenue. After graduating, Talia traveled the world, camera in hand, and developed her playfully candid style of photography. Her travels and experience living in a meditation center helped shape her perspective on life and the significance of every passing moment. She connects with people beyond the lens and regularly breaks the "rules" of photography to bring her work to life. 

Along with being a skilled photographer, Talia seamlessly organizes every photoshoot and wedding. She lives in the details. She creates timelines, plans lighting, and collaborates with everyone involved, from planners and designers to florists and venues, to create the perfect day. Most importantly, she works closely with every client to understand their individual needs not only on the day of the event, but also during the weeks and months of planning. These efforts help ensure every important guest, portrait, and moment is captured exactly as it should be.

"Both Juan and Talia made us feel completely at ease. They made the process fun and easy and allowed us to fully be ourselves and be present for this amazing day. They were able to capture the most beautiful moments of our wedding. The final gallery is absolutely perfect."
