Elope in Carmel

We love photographing little elopements. Yes, we've done huge extravagent events, but there is something so sweet, romantic and intimate about a little elopement. We document lovely little ceremonies at San Francisco City Hall, which is a gorgeous location! And we adore Napa elopements as well. However, we wanted to share this recent elopement in Carmel with a ceremony at Carmel Beach and dinner at Forge in the Forest in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

There really is no wedding to small for us to document with our cameras. It is always an honor and downright delightful to photograph a bride & groom's most special day!

A + B Inspire Workshop!

Well, it's been awhile since our last post. EEP! So much has been going on...busy photographers, busy growing the family...Yes we had a 2nd kid born to us July 24th! We will share all that in another post. For now, we wanted to share our Inspire Workshop that is happening next week on Wednesday, April 30th in Carmel Valley at our studio. We have two photo shoots lined up: engaged couple, and a stunning bride wearing who will be wearing her very own Vera Wang gown from her wedding! We have some spots around Carmel, as well as a real wedding venue around the corner from us who will be letting us shoot there! It's going to be fun!!!

There is still a little room if you want to snag a spot in the workshop. Please call or email us at to sign up!

Get Re-Engaged!

Time to get updated couple portraits? Do we do that? The answer is YES! Re-experience the love affair with a photo shoot of you both.. Maybe you want something a bit more casual then just your wedding photographs to decorate your home, and something a bit more fun and fresh. It's a lot like an engagement photo session, but maybe you've never had one, or it's time for a new one!

Recently, we had a very sweet couple from Canada come to San Francisco. They decided they needed something special to celebrate their 5 year anniversary...

Thank you, Morgan & Rylan! Happy 5th!

It's All About the SHOES!

One of our favorite things to photograph at weddings are the shoes. How can you not love a gorgeous heel? When we see a stylish shoe we can't help but get overly creative with the shoe shots! I thought it would be good to share some of our favorite shoe and ring shots over the last few years. We took some shots of a pair of divine Christian Louboutin's at a recent wedding we did with wedding designer, Duncan Reyes, but we are going to have to hold those back till they print in an upcoming magazine! Details to follow soon...

Lastly, I want to say a shout out to Heidi Hughett of Coastside Couture who inspired me to do this blog post. She is hopelessly in love with fabulous shoes!

Enjoy the shoes!

The Lady Crooners

We LOVE this song from The Lady Crooners, as well as their video. We are thrilled they will be graciously lending us this song for our website, which is soon to have a great new look. Brook and I recently had the opportunity to photograph The Lady Crooners at their concert in Santa Cruz at Kuumbwa Jazz where they released their spankin' new album, The Lady Crooners. Their music has a very soulful folk pop sound with beautiful harmonies, and interweaving guitars. Check them out on their website or Facebook for their latest shows on when they'll be playing. They frequently perform in San Francisco, which is always a great city for entertainment! Just wanted to share some of our favorite images from their concert. Enjoy, and please leave a comment!  A+B

Style Me Pretty FEATURE

We are pleased that Style Me Pretty posted a gorgeous wedding Brook photographed at Beaulieu Gardens in Napa Valley. Soon to be added to our website. It's a lovely feature which quotes the bride saying,"We had the opportunity to work with so many amazing people during this process — including our photographer, Brook Todd, who captured the day so beautifully. He went above and beyond by recommending our rehearsal dinner location, hotel options, and the band. On top of that, he’s just really fun to be around – we’re searching for an excuse to work with him again!"

I would have loved to have photographed with him that day. But it's hard to be in two places at once! (I will make sure to work on that..) I was behind my camera documenting a small, intimate wedding in Mammoth, CA. Not too far from Yosemite. The ceremony had a beautiful lake behind it, with grand mountains surrounding.

We would love for you to check out the Style Me Pretty feature. Please feel free to comment here or on Style Me Pretty. Check it out here.

Also, recently on Style Me Pretty's California blog, they posted a wedding we photographed at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley. Thank you for visiting us here. Fashion show post soon to come..
