Shoot BIG!

Yup…that’s our motto! During a shoot, the environment around you can play a very inspirational role in what we simply call…creating a work of art. We are always striving to think outside the box in such a challenging field. We know our clients want to see something unique from us, and we always want to make sure we’re able to capitalize and deliver something beyond their expectations. So next time you’re out there, always remember to shoot BIG!

Keith & Kristan | Engaged

First off, I gotta thank Keith and Kristan for sticking it out with us until the sun went down. They were such GREAT sports! So, thanks, guys for being so patient with us. We’ve been so excited to share this set with everyone so please ENJOY!!!

^^^Part of why we spent a good portion of our session at the park was because of BUDDY!!! It was difficult for Leslie and I, both being dog lovers, to not want to play with Buddy instead of doing our job =) But we made sure to get plenty of photos of the little guy!^^^

^^^Attention stealer =)^^^

^^^Buddy’s best Dane Khy impersonation. I gotta say, it’s spot on =)^^^

^^^Yup! Just enjoying the beautiful fall colors^^^

^^^Strolling through the streets of German Village, we were greeted by more four-legged furry friends!^^^

Keith and Kristan will be tying the knot in April of 2012! God knows the pure fun we’re all going to have!! I have a feeling it’s going to come by a lot sooner than expected. CAN’T WAIT!!!


^^^So I was running back and forth to the car to grab some light stands, and I happened to look over to see how Leslie was doing with Keith and Kristan….^^^

^^^Leslie’s Spiderman shot!!!  =)^^^

Matt & Emily | Married

Oh man! So much has been going on around the world of The Perfect Pear Photography that we’ve been slacking a bit on our posts. Oops! We apologize for that! Although, we do have some exciting news and projects to share with you guys! But we’ll save that for another post and for now focus all of our attention on Matt & Emily! I’ve personally known Emily for quite some time now, and we are certainly good friends. Seeing her and Matt together…it’s easy to say that they truly love one another. Leslie and I had such a great time, not only photographing, but spending the day there with friends and family. It’s definitely an exciting feeling when your friends get to see you in action! Anyways, we hope you all enjoy the photos! G’night!!!


Even though we are no longer neighbors, don’t be surprised if we show up at your guys’ doorstep begging for some of that amazing mac & cheese!!! We love you guys =)

Jake & Lisa | Married

For those of you who haven’t seen Jake and Lisa’s engagement session then I suggest you do it NOW! But make sure you come back here and prepare to witness some serious heartfelt photos.

Jake and Lisa, photographing the two of you I think it’s safe to say we love what we do! You two have been nothing but wonderful from day one. The way in which you’ve both welcomed Leslie and I into such an important time in your lives, means so much to us! So without further ado, we present to you and the internet… some awesome wedding photos =) We hope you all enjoy them.

Cheng & Esther | Engaged

Is it just us or do we always meet the coolest couples ever? Cheng and Esther were certainly that. We somehow turned an engagement session at Balboa Island into an entire evening of fun and exciting adventures – from meeting fancy dogs laced in Dolce & Gabbana to feasting at the finest steakhouse in town. We’ll never forget the spectacular time we had with the two of you.
