A year ago Saturday, Tim and I pulled on our fancy pants, invited everyone over for a champagne-soaked bash and launched Sullivan & Sullivan for the very first time. So today is kind of like our birthday. *First of all, ok, we’re not really one year old. We spent two years as Lightworks360 and I […]

My dudes, we are in the thick of wedding season, which means that having an evening for a good old fashioned engagement shoot, taking tequila shots with new friends in one of our fave neighborhoods, is just what the doctor ordered (the doctor has lost her license but that’s neither here nor there- where was […]

Wandering into the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center is stepping into the modern day ruins of old Texas: all sandy stone and climbing ivy and agave plants, a place to return to again and again as you find new paths and new plants defying the odds; growing sturdily in the Texas heat. New paths every time […]

Sarah’s first email to us felt like a little fairy godmother booped us on the head. She described Davis, her husband-to-be, as “the brightest light I think this world has ever seen,” and anyone who describes their person before they describe their wedding clearly has their priorities straight. Then she told us she was crying […]

When Lina first spotted Brian across the room, she thought: “My dream guy. Tall, dork and handsome.” We started their shoot with champagne at home and ended it on the top of Rattlesnake Ridge (luckily Lina brought exactly four mandarins, which prevented almost sure death on the way up because damn Rattlesnake ain’t joking around) […]

Sometimes we show up for a wedding at a distant Texas ranch, thunder rolling in the distance, and don’t know a soul. And something about the energy as we drive up feels… right. Like things are going to happen just the way they would in your dreams. And thanks to the couple being incredible and down […]

Avid travelers will tell you that you have to take at least four forms of transportation to get anywhere interesting. Simply getting somewhere interesting is one thing, but getting 150 of your nearest and dearest to take the trek with you, now that’s outright audacious. Audacious is a fitting word too, since Ashley and Susana’s […]

Rob and Julie crossed paths at a wedding many moons ago, and boy had his dang heart set on her. Julie is the kind of girl who’s so pretty you kind of don’t want to look straight at her because it makes you feel a little shy, but her personality is the equivalent of a […]

“We’re just Riles and Beaz, trying to make our way in this world!” BRB, laughing forever. When you squeeze your bride at the end of the night and tell her how overflowing your heart is after a wedding day with her and the amazing crew she and her hubs surround themselves with and she responds […]

Micaela and Billy met in high school when they snuck (sneaked?) out of the house on a fateful night eight years ago/fell in love/dated all through college/now they’re getting married and we’re the luckiest to be a part of their day, because high school sweethearts who actually work out are like a modern day rare endangered species […]

“Can’t kiss ya too much, I’m playing hard to get” Whit tells Raz halfway through our shoot (the classic line she used when he first hit on her outside a bar). Whit. He’s the father of your unborn child, the jig is up, you two are in it to win it. That bump ain’t getting any […]

Yep, Megan’s wedding JUST hit the blog but I could never get tired of seeing her face so we’re doing a Double Megan Whammy this week. Because guess what. She had a different wedding dress last summer, when we conspired to do this sneaky shoot of her in her original bomb feathered dream.. A last minute […]

After Megan and Neil’s wedding last month, we realized we could cull our wedding advice down to two basics: 1) love each other and 2) find the light. When we showed up to these sweet thangs’ prep rooms (two different floors in a bodacious Pioneer Square loft! How genius) I half-fainted at the floor to […]

In Seattle, we never ever cancel shoots because of the weather. In Chicago, if we kept the same policy, we might die. But in between snowy days that I’ve never seen in the PNW before, when the city shuts down for holiday and you have the run of the land all to yourselves, you gotta […]

“I like the music of his voice.” Texas belle Jessi. On her way to see her French husband to be Baptiste for the first time on their wedding day. We’re in the car murmuring about all the ways that love becomes a little miracle when you had to cross oceans and geography and culture to […]

Yo dudes. There are some shoots that I scurry home and edit and then make thrusting motions all over the office for three days because our couple was JUST. TOO. DAMN. GOOD. Not trying to be overeager here but after Natasha and Doug’s engagement photos in good old Georgetown, I went home and made a paper chain countdown […]

“Anyone who can leave the Yucatán with indifference has never been an artist and will never be a scholar.” -Claude-Joseph Désiré Charnay, 1863 We were deep inland in the Yucatàn exploring the Spanish colonial streets of Mérida when we were ushered through a back alley, past an outdoor grill filled with smoking chili peppers, through a velvet […]

Well folks, we found out that there are multiple Panama Cities, and that apparently one is in Florida. No offense Floridians, but that’s hard pass when places like Casco Viejo in the ORIGINAL Panama City are up for grabs. Katy and Eric told us they wanted to meet us somewhere in the world this year […]

Ahh, the dulcet tones of the sound of your own voice… yikes. Last autumn, as we were scoping out the Yucatan peninsula for this year’s Moveable Feast, we had the amazing good fortune of appearing on a podcast that is EXACTLY our cup of tequila. The Half Hour Intern (run by our insatiably curious hero Blake Fletcher) […]

There are some little crises that being a full-time wedding photographer brings on in my darker moments. I get a little panicky that I’m not photographing refugees as often as I used to, not sharing the big personal stories that pulled me into photography in the first place. Like, is another photo of bridal flowers […]
