Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
APW couples plan outside the box. We’ve shot enough cookie-cutter weddings, and we get much more out of the unique and special weddings we love seeing on APW! APW couples are hands-on and are special, and their special qualities show in their day.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
The best compliment we’ve ever received was when one of our couples, at our first meeting, told us how much they loved our photos because our “photography is very honest.” We like to approach each couples’ day with this sincerity. Maybe that’s why we like those one-of-a-kind weddings, the kind that shine “this is who we are!” Those weddings are the most honest events; and they fit our approach perfectly. We love shooting film and polaroids and toy cameras as well, as we think these mediums provide that gateway into the intimacy and sincerity of the couple’s relationship with each other and their friends and family.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
Cooking! We cook vegan food every day and love to eat everything from kale to cupcakes. If there was a documentary about us, it’d be titled “Kale to Cupcakes.” We love riding our bikes along the sunny coast of our home town Santa Cruz. Tony, our cat, gets a lot of squishing and snuggles and spoons. And we love watching our TV shows – which include The Office, Parks and Rec, and others we’d prefer not to publish to spare the judgement :D We also love playing music – here’s a video of wifey Erin playing an original.
What’s your favorite book?
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abby, just to name two of many.
What’s your favorite movie?
The Fall – Jeremy
The Notebook – Erin
