Welcome Robyn and Maria are two drop dead gorgeous photographers that lie about their looks but take killer photographs. We are a little bit like AC/DC, totally different but put us together and we make really great loud music. Except we don't make music we make pictures. Pretty damn good ones if you ask us.

So we are posting the engagement after the wedding because we shot the session just days before the wedding.

And now for an embarrassing reveal exposing how snobby we are: Often when we are asked to go to places like this, we roll our eyes and think it would be cheesy... we know, we know, that is lame and elitist and TOTALLY WRONG!! The light was stunning, the shadows strong, and the color vibrant!! The beautiful light mixed with these two beautiful people was a match made in photographer-heaven! These two are so IN LOVE it is palpable, contagious and so much fun to photograph. Thank you Sarah and Brooks for being wonderful, in love, and trusting. It was an absolute pleasure to make pretty pictures with you!


In truth,
Robyn and Maria

Four year ago, back when Maria and I first started photographing weddings together as Verité, these two lovelies got married on Treasure Island and brought the two of us along for the festivities, and we have loved them ever since!

Recently, they've been itching to get dressed up again and visit one of their favorite places, to do some more "wedding" photos. So early last Fall, we all went down to Carmel for the weekend and visited 1) an Antique Mall! Sandra and Derek LOVE antiquing! and 2) Pebble Beach, at the very spot where Derek first proposed.

Man, it's great to hang out with happy couples and old friends!

Maria and Andi are probably two of the most likeable people we have ever met! Seriously, Maria (the Verité one) and I were just instantly in love with these guys. While they are genuinely great, I think our adoration of them is at least partially due to their fantastically huge, warm, inviting smiles. I in particular am such a sucker for a big smile. It just makes me immediately drawn to someone! (I remember I used to try to stretch my mouth and lips out in junior high because I was convinced if I did it enough, I would develop a Julia Roberts like smile . . . it didn't work for me, and I think these guys were just blessed with the real deal)

Anyway, we did their session in Golden Gate Park since it has both the Japanese Tea Garden (and they have Japanese heritage) and casting pools! Andi is an avid fly fisher. He proposed to Maria with her ring in a special tackle box and asked her to be his "fishing partner for life"! (See, they are the cutest!)

These guys have been married for 10 years and look at the way they still look at each other! We're so glad they got to spend lots of little quiet moments together this sunny afternoon in their little town of Sunol. They've got a wee one coming soon so their sunny afternoons may be a little less quiet from here on out :)

Anyway, Maria and I are so in love with this session- Beautiful light + True love make us some happy photographers!

Hi Robyn, We're friends of your mom. We babysat you once or twice when you were very small. Wow! Your pics are fabulous. If our son gets married, I'll know who to call. Would love to see you sometime if we're ever in the neighborhood. Cheryl & Elliot

Maria and I may have a new favorite place to do photo shoots; it's a place called Oakland.
Being based in "the city", we tend to act like that is the only one, but thankfully Albert and Andrea are avid Oakland lovers and livers, and they showed us all sorts of great architecture, food, and views over there in that far away land across the bay. And we were instantly sold! I do suspect that our perception was tainted due to the fact that we were having such a good time hanging out with these two and their infectious laughter though! These guys have been dating for 15 years, and as such, tried to convince us they were over the cutesy-wootesy-lovey-dovey phase, but we think they've still got a good amount left in 'em!
We're so excited for their wedding in two weeks when we'll get to photograph those fabulous big smiles all day!
