• WELCOME!

    The Wades are a husband and wife team who love connecting with and drawing out the genuine moments and personalities of their couples on a wedding day.

    Gavin and Erin are known for using natural light to capture relaxed and fun portraits, gorgeous details, and all of the joyful candid moments in between!

An afternoon with Kate and Chris…they’re engaged!

Kate and Chris…what can we say about these two who are becoming such dear friends of ours. We’ve been itching to do a fun photoshoot with all four of us for some time now, and seeing as Kate and Chris are now engaged and on the road to their wedding, we knew we had to snag these two before things got too crazy! Basically, it was just an excuse to get some fun photos of one another and hang with great friends.

Kate is a photographer here in Orange County as well and once I met Chris, we quickly realized that our love for fitness and…other nerdy and embarrassing things..gave us plenty to enjoy when we all hang out at unhealthy hours of the night.

The shoot was a tag team event of sorts. Lots of running around, lots of laughter, and really just a fun day out getting creative and doing what we love with two people who we can’t wait to see get married in a few short months!

Here are some of moments of our day out.

P.S. If you want to see Erin and I from our day together, you’ve got to hop over to Kate’s Blog and see me and my hottie wife! Thanks Kate for such great photos! :)

Walking ahead of our girls, they call out to us thinking they’d be all sneaky and snap an embarrassing shot of us. As if second nature, and without even planning it…this is what we each did. THAT, right there, is why we are friends…haha. You’re welcome Kate and Erin.
