Hi! We're Blake and Maxine Ellertson, a husband and wife from Temecula, California. We both grew up in the same little town and even went to the same middle school and high school. However, our story didn't start until we reconnected in college where we connected through our passion for photography, videography, and adventure. About a year into dating, we both found ourselves living in the mountainous state of Utah where we created and captured some of our favorite memories, including getting engaged. When we got married, we moved back to our hometown to be with family and get our associates degree. Then at the beginning of 2019, we found ourselves living in the beautiful state of Hawaii to get our bachelor's degree.
In our free time, Blake enjoys playing sports (especially soccer and surfing), being in nature, and studying psychology, and Maxine enjoys finding the best food, styling outfits, and decorating spaces. But we both love being out in the sunshine and playing games with our families.

We have two furbabies, Theo and Otis. Theo is our feisty 3-year old tabby cat that we adopted when we lived in Utah. He was the runt of the litter and has always shown his adventurous curious side. He loves the outdoors, will do anything to get treats, and can jump up more than 5ft in the air. He's traveled with us from Utah to California, and from California to Hawaii and back. Otis is our strong 2-year old golden retriever, who overcame parvo. After many medical bills and vet trips later, he's become a healthy playful pup who loves sports, just like his dad. Soccer is his favorite sport (he's the best goalie you'll ever meet). You can almost always find him at the pool with his favorite spikey ball.
We share a passion for photography and videography. We love capturing real, candid, and genuine expressions and emotions of the people we meet, which is why we started this business. We believe our style is modern yet timeless and natural, with a focus on exhilarating moments and pure happiness. Our knowledge of design, storytelling, and our life-long passion for photography and videography are reflected in the photos and videos we produce. Our clients vision and happiness is always our priority.
Though we are currently traveling between Hawaii and California,
we are also available to travel anywhere. We've shot weddings anywhere from Northern and Southern California to Utah and Idaho.
Below are some rough estimates of where we'll be this year
Currently: San Diego, CA
January 2020 - March 2020: Oahu, HI
April 2020 and on: San Diego, CA
