Afraid of Feeling awkward in front of the camera?

pssst here's a secret: poses only make this 100% more awkward and less natural


Yorba Linda Wedding

Joshua Tree Elopement


The beauty of Elopements and Small Weddings is that the two of you get to be celebrated in the way that feels the most you! There is no pressure to perform, to entertain, to be someone you are not. Your wedding day should be a reflection and celebration of your unique love for one another.

The experience

moments over poses

Trust us, the best photos come from moments where you are free to be you!

We'll give you a few directions instead of poses, and we'll let you both make the magic happen! You'll run around, hold each other close, and just have fun! If you don’t feel confident in front of the camera, know that you are not alone! As you dance along to your fav jams (don’t worry, we won’t judge!), you’ll forget that you’re being photographed. It’s our goal to make you feel like you’re just hanging out with your new friends, free to have fun and be yourself.

“Josiah and Summer are incredibly organized and patient! They helped us with our engagement photos. Both Michael and I can feel incredibly awkward in front of the camera! Josiah was patient with us and captured our goofy sense of humor and love in a unique way. We highly recommend Josiah and Summer!”

—Laura and Michael—

“Josiah and Summer captured our proposal/ engagement photos. Neither my husband nor I feel especially confident when it comes to pictures and I did not know they were even there for the proposal part, but they were so kind and great with directions. My husband said that they helped him plan every step of the way and were super up to speed about positive and consistent communication. They also listened to any concerns or ideas we had. We felt super comfortable with them and we absolutely loved the photos. They are such a loving, caring, and talented couple who we would absolutely get photos again from.”

—HOPE and IAN—

“My (now) husband hired Josiah and Summer for our engagement photos. They did such a wonderful job! I was completely surprised by the engagement and didn't even notice Josiah and Summer snapping away pictures or following me and my husband as we walked to the spot where he proposed. The pictures were returned in a timely manner for us to share with friends and family and were all so beautiful! We ended up using one for our Save the Dates as well. So, so thankful that their photos are a part of our story, absolutely beautiful!” 

—Caroline and NOAH—
