Honesty. Quality. Community.
We create images that capture raw, warm moments while helping you feel comfortable in front of the camera with guidance and direction. These moments can be as grand as the ceremonial first kiss or as private and intimate as a moment shared with a loved one well before the ceremony or during the reception.
We are in love with romance & intimacy, natural lighting, and REAL moments that document the true narrative of your love story.
Our goal is to not only document your special day, but to develop a friendship with both of you . Because life is all about surrounding yourselves with people you care about and doing life together.
So, if you are looking for something that's real rather than posed and forced smiles, let's create some beautiful photos together that you will enjoy with your friends and family for years to come.
We are new homeowners Southern California and have put down roots in beautiful Ventura County. We started our lives together renovating a 35 foot travel trailer and living on a farm in Napa, CA. After starting a family, we made the decision to move closer to our families in Los Angeles and San Diego. We are road-trip junkies traveling all over California and neighboring states on a regular basis. We love exploring new places together and meeting new people all along the way. When we're home, you'll find us watching some kind of documentary, walking our pups, watching a Dodger game, or enjoying our record collection we've been building for several years now.
We're both Southern Californian's at heart. Joey is from the Los Angeles area and Aly is from San Diego. Both families are still in LA and SD which gives us a great excuse to roam that area of California often. We met in LA when we both ended up leading the music team at a small church in Burbank. Aly had moved to LA and was already involved at the church when Joey moved back home and joined the church after living in New York for awhile. A mutual connection brought us together and from there our love story began.
We developed a great friendship over a couple years while casually flirting here and there. We started dating and began to share our mutual passions for exploring new places, music, and photography. Joey eventually proposed and we were engaged for 5 months. We got married in LA in Joey's grandparent's backyard surrounded by our closest friends and family.
We are so in love with our baby girl, Isla Love and are so excited for another little girl coming our way later this year.
Also, we love our fur babies, Mila & Milo. They add so much life and occasionally chaos to the Tovar house. Mila is the red mini Australian Shepherd and Milo is the wide-eyed dachshund/corgi mix. They love to be by our sides during a movie, meet other dogs at a dog park, and playing catch in the backyard.
"If you want an amazing photographer with the sweetest souls and great eyes, hire them! We eloped in Joshua Tree and they drove out there to document our special moment. "
- M. Parker
"We love love love their chill relaxed style and quality pictures/edits! They were so flexible with us for our engagement pictures. Getting up before sunrise and riding in the back of our Jeep to the picture location. They were so sweet and accommodating. Love each and every picture from our engagement and wedding.”
- A. Young
an investment you'll never forget
We believe that this day is all about you and that every love story is a perfect story. We're always ready for a new adventure.
So let’s do this thing.
