About Us

We are Jeff and Lisa Llarena, wedding photographers, husband and wife, and the best of friends. We’ve been together for 17 years, married for 9. We share our home with a 4-year-old adventurer named Corwin, way too many books, never enough records, and whichever plants Lisa hasn’t killed yet. On any given day, it smells like freshly brewed coffee, paper, and most likely, bacon.

Weddings are such personal things, we figure it’s only fair our clients know more about us. So, in the spirit of ye olde slambooks, High Fidelity, and random trivia, here goes.

Things We Like

Jeff: “waking up next to my wife, the way my son laughs, the sound of rain hitting the roof, jazz, the way my wife sings Christmas songs without realizing it whenever she’s happy, running, graphic novels, and whisky.”

Lisa: “sleeping in, the sound of waves crashing, the city, headphones, vinyl records, old movies, road trips, witty banter, subtitles, singing in the shower, tongue-in-cheek humor, laughing ’till I cry, writing my son letters, and bunnies.”
