STORY TELLERS who like to LAUGH with you the whole way through your big day.

Michaela & Tim


We are a wife and hubby team, classic film photographers, and art driven story tellers who like to laugh with you the whole way through your big day.

Fine art photojournalism is our style of documenting weddings. That means we give you just the right amount of art direction that keeps you feeling comfortable enough to let your true emotions shine through to make for a very pretty picture. Building time in your day to capture your details in an artistic fashion is important to our style. And taking some time with just the two of you is how we get those fine art images as well. 
Photojournalism is for those “in-between” moments are the ones we love the most. The sneaky kisses, the hug from Grandma and the dancing three year old. The ones that tell your wedding day story. 
~
We create photographic art using film and digital mediums learned in university and studying under prolific wedding photographers. Members of local and national photographer societies. Between us we have degrees in art, business and have studied event hospitality for over 20 years combined.  Ask Michaela about the first wedding she photographed at age 14, and Tim about documenting NYC.
In the end, we are old school when it comes to photographs, and our goal is for every family to have gorgeous images that your children’s children can hold in their hands, and continue reliving your story for generations.


 

our
story

Mr. & Mrs. O'Shea

> We had our own wedding in 2014, and get to relive it every time we photograph a wedding. It's the kind of sappy, heartfelt loveliness that comes with knowing what it's like to find your person, and celebrate it!
> We moved from Denver to the Bay Area for its endless beauty, and for its opportunity to have almost every type of wedding. We fine-tuned our craft by working alongside some of the best wedding photographers in the area.
> People tell us we are sickingly-cute in love with each other. Oops, sorry-not sorry. 
> In our spare time you will find us trying out a new restaurant, heading to the ocean or exploring a new place to hike.
> Michaela does yoga in the living room every morning and Tim has a wicked tennis serve.
> There has rarely been a month that goes by where we have not been to a concert or the symphony, or both. Museums, music, and other art and photography are where we stay inspired. Fashion might be our collective vice.
> Michaela has a book club. Tim has a wine club.
> Life goals are to live in a place where we can have goats and horses... near an airport. And to have visited every country in the world!
