Travis & Stephanie // Malaga Cove anniversary session Los Angeles

Los Angeles Southern California wedding photography  // ©2020 Sun & Sparrow Photography



Travis and Stephanie met in the college dorms at the University of Chicago. Their chemistry was undeniable from the first time they met; however, dating Stephanie would violate Travis’ #1 rule as a college senior – NO DATING FRESHMAN. After months of flirting, Travis finally decided to break his own rules and they started dating in April 2007. Two months later, Travis graduated and moved to St. Louis for graduate school while Stephanie finished her degree in Chicago. They continued to date long-distance for 7 years as they pursued their careers in different states. Travis traveled back and forth between St. Louis and Chicago almost every weekend. In 2014, Travis followed Stephanie to LA so they could finally live together and get married. Their August 2014 Chicago wedding was an absolute dream, but tragically the photos didn’t turn out. The devastation of the photography nightmare was quickly cast aside as they got pregnant with their first child. Now, nearly two years after the wedding, they finally have wedding photos that reflect the true magic and romance of their wedding day!


We are so honored to have been a part of this beautiful anniversary session. Travis & Stephanie came to us to photograph their wedding day a few years after their wedding. They wanted a beautiful fairytale to commemorate their love. We are so honored and blessed to help them have their fairytale dream wedding photos!

      Palace of Fine Arts engagement in San Francisco // Blake & Kristen

      san francisco romantic engagement

      how he asked-torrance wedding-photographyWe set off on a two week vacation to visit Budapest, Vienna, Salzberg, Munich for Oktoberfest, and finishing off in Prague.

      We had visited Budapest, Vienna and then headed over to Salzberg. That night Blake surprises me and tells me the following afternoon we are going to a Chateau in Schloss Fussi overlooking a serene lake where we are going to stay the night. I thought this rather interesting because we rarely treat ourselves to nice hotels so I thought something was up. That night I get all dressed up and we head to dinner, nothing..totally thought if something was going to happen it would have happened there.  In the morning, it is pouring! so we head to breakfast and then make our way out of Schloss and onto another little town outside of Munich. We head to Oktoberfest and then make our way to Prague where we have three days!  On the 2nd night there we are craving some normal food and we LOVE mexican food. A girl we had met at Oktoberfest was studying abroad in Prague and told us about this Mexican restaurant that was the best she’s ever had, so we decided to try it out. (Definitely not even close to the best we had, but she was from Providence and we live in CA – enough said).  Anyway Blake is acting a bit funny all night and is SO sweaty. I really didn’t think much of it to be honest…we ate dinner and then after every meal we always try and get lost in the streets to make our way back tot he hotel and Blake always leads…so he leads me over to this small little bridge that is a love lock bridge. I LOVE love luck bridges – I fell in love with them when we went to Paris and even in Budapest, and Vienna they had them as well. Well he surprised me with a lock! how romantic! so we put the lock on, threw the key in the little stream and took a few pictures. Little did I know that when I was putting the lock on he had pulled out the ring, after pictures..he got down on his knee and the rest is history!! That night I found out that this was only a plan B. His plan A was actually at the Chateau and he had organized for us in the morning to take a paddle boat out to the middle of the lake where he would propose there and the hotel had already planned to have strawberries and champagne for when we returned however that morning it POURED – it was the ONLY day the entire trip it rained. But to be honest I liked the last minute Plan B better anyway. More us 🙂
      That’s our LONG story!! 🙂  And we are celebrating 6 years together in a few weeks!

        Tom & Stephanie // Garden Inspired wedding in Palos Verdes

        Garden Inspired wedding in Palos Verdes // ©2016 Sun & Sparrow South Coast Botanical Garden wedding photographer

        Sun & Sparrow is one of the leading engagement and wedding photographers in the Los Angeles area as well as Santa Barbara and Orange County.

        Some of our favorite moments from the wedding reception were simply standing together as a newly married couple, looking out over the field and watching people we love, both kids and adults, talking, laughing, and playing.  We loved having so many people that we love (many that we don’t get to see often) together with us, celebrating and supporting us in entering into this next phase of our lives together.  We felt an overall sense of joy and celebration, which was what we wanted!  It was important to us that our guests could sense our personalities in the details of the wedding and we feel like that was accomplished. The wedding was in such a beautiful venue that we were able to keep the decorations pretty simple and open up the field to play in.  Our flowers were incredible.  They were centered around protea (the uniquely beautiful national flower of South Africa – where Steph used to live) and other brightly colored, alien-looking flowers that you couldn’t help but touch.

        We had a lot of help from friends, family, and former students in putting things together and making the ceremony and reception happen.  This included hair and makeup, DJ-ing, live guitar playing before and during the ceremony, and even the creation of a Steph and Tom coloring book!  Not to mention, Tom and one of the groomsmen made the delicious beer!
        We loved our coordinator, all of the venders, and especially our photographers! We would recommend all of them to anyone looking for lovely people who are easy to work with, organized, and do great work!
