Love Benefit Thanks and a Video

By, September 01, 2015

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been showcasing many of the vendors we love working with, and those who sponsored The Love Benefit event. This event was held on June 2, 2015 at the beautiful Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. There were over 300 in attendance, with a silent auction, live music from The Mar Dels, amazing drinks and cuisine, and a surprise appearance by our company’s founder, Aaron Feldman. It was an incredible evening, and it could never have happened without the love and support of everyone involved.

To enjoy highlights from this event, check out this awesome video by local videographer Taylor D’Apice

We would also like to thank the wonderful contributors and volunteers who helped to make this event so extraordinary.

Surprise Proposal Photo Shoot in Rancho Santa Fe

By, January 30, 2013

We love being wedding photographers! As part of our job, we participate in one of the most significant and intimate days in a couple’s life. We also find similar joy in photographing the emotional proposal — the very first step in the wedding planning process!

This past December, we had the chance to be a part of Hyatt and Michelle’s engagement at her parents’ home in Rancho Santa Fe. The two of them are studying for their Masters and Law degrees respectively, at Duke University. While Hyatt was supposed to be going home to Georgia for the holidays, he made a pit stop at Michelle’s parents home. Together they devised a plan to surprise Michelle when she arrived home from the airport. When Michelle walked in the front door, her mom handed her the phone to speak to her boyfriend. To her amazement, he was waiting for her in the backyard with a bouquet and an engagement ring!

Because Michelle’s plane was a little delayed, the outdoor photos you see here were taken under the night sky! Take a look below at how the evening unfolded. Congrats to the happy couple!
