We are Photographers, Videographers, and DJs


We are a family! Seriously, there's 4 of us! Donnie and Melissa are siblings, Donnie and Kristen are husband + wife, and Melissa's husband Chris runs a lot on the backend. Randy, our DJ/Emcee, is our brother from another mother! 

We're based in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest because Donnie and Kristen up and left CA for a new adventure! We're foodies who love delicious beer (and wine!) and we absolutely love to work together in this crazy industry of weddings. We create magic with our clients that we hope will last a lifetime and believe that every wedding is worthy of being remembered. We're real people that want to work with real, madly in love couples.



This is us.


Hi, I'm Melissa!

I'm a mama to a spunky 3 year old ginger boy and wife to my (sometimes) second shooter, Christopher. I'm a taco lover and could eat Mexican food every day of the week. I love to explore new places and am currently lusting over all things European. I dabble in film photography, but mostly shoot digital. You can check out more of my work on my portfolio over at melissaatle.com


Hey, I'm Donnie!

Long time lover of movie watching and movie making. Got married last year to the amazing Kristen in Armstrong Woods, CA. I can't go out to breakfast without ordering french toast, and have an obsession with Amsterdam. Started my film career capturing legends like The Grateful Dead, John Mayer, and Slightly Stoopid. Living in Portland but will travel anywhere in the world to film your wedding!


Yo - I’m Kristen!

I too am a mama, but to a sweet little kitten named Mary Berry. I'll eat anything with the words “lemon” and “lavender” in the name and have a pretty solid sweet tooth. I’m a graphic designer by weekday and film weddings with the handsome blonde dude next to me on weekends. Check out some of my design work on kristenbest.com!


What's up - I'm Randy!

I'm also known as DJ Tecni and I’ve been playing music for people for as long as I can remember. Whether it's been through cassette tapes, vinyl, and now digital, I could tell you my life story in song lyrics. After 22 years of mixing I'm still in love with making people dance, but now I’m also in love with my wife and our fancy-footed 2 year old son. In my spare time I follow MMA very closely, watch documentaries, and am a huge foodie in love with the art of Sushi. It would be my absolute pleasure to take you on a musical journey for your special day!
