Joel & Kendal

Photo & Video Duo


Hello, friends!

We are Joel & Kendal, the hearts and souls behind the camera. As husband and wife, parents of four wonderful kids, and proud caretakers of four lively dogs – we form an inseparable team. With roots firmly planted in the beautiful landscapes of Chico, California, we bring over a decade of rich experience to the art of wedding photography and videography. We’re more than just photographers; we’re your companions on a day that means the world to you.

We’re not about stiff poses or forced smiles. We’re about capturing your wedding day as it unfolds. We’re about documenting the shy glances, the secret smiles, the tears of joy, and the laughter echoing through the room. We’re about making you comfortable and capturing real moments and emotions in their rawest form. Our approach is relaxed and easygoing, yet we never hesitate to take control when needed, ensuring everything flows seamlessly on your special day.

We want to document your love story how it should be told – honestly, authentically, and beautifully. We’re here to provide gentle guidance, making sure you always feel confident and comfortable in front of our lens. We truly believe that your wedding day is not just about the destination. It’s about the journey, the small moments that make up your love story.

So, let’s embark on this journey together. As you step into a new chapter of life, rest assured that we’ll be there, quietly capturing your precious moments from the background. We look forward to becoming a part of your story and making your day one to remember forever.

How This Works



First things first, we’d love to hear from you! Reach out to us with your wedding details – the date, location, and anything else you’d like us to know. This is the first step. We want to get to know you, understand your needs, and ensure we’re the right fit for each other. So go ahead, don’t be shy, hit that ‘Inquire’ button!



Once we have your details, we’ll arrange a personalized consultation (either face-to-face or virtual – whichever suits you best!). We’ll chat about your vision, answer any questions, and offer expert advice to make your wedding experience as magical as possible.



The most exciting part – the wedding day! Guided by our expertise, we’ll take you through the day, capturing every detail and moment of your wedding. We’ll be there whether it’s the nervous anticipation before the ceremony, the joyous celebration of the reception, or those quiet, heartfelt moments in between. You can focus on enjoying your special day while we ensure that every moment is beautifully immortalized.

My current turnaround time is 6 weeks. I will also provide sneak peeks within 24 hours of your wedding day.

Absolutely! I serve all of the US and in most cases, there is no travel fee if I can drive to your wedding and back home on the same day. If I need to stay the night, then a small fee will be added to cover the night’s stay at a BNB or Hotel.

Not at all. We like to work in the shadows. Just kidding. But, in all honesty, we are good at reading the room. So if we need to take charge and make sure the day’s events are progressing, then we are confident in doing so, but if all is flowing nicely and you are a chill bunch, and your goal is relaxed and lifestyle/natural, then that’s what we prefer.

I have the answers, and if I don’t, then ill find them and get them to you.

how to work with us

We only take on a select number of Weddings every year to ensure that all our couples receive our undivided attention.

02. Consultation

We will reach out if your date is still available and schedule a consultation where we will get to know you and hear about your vision for your wedding. We will review our packages and determine if you need a custom build-your-own package and if we are a good fit for each other.

03. Secure your date

If we both agree that we are a good fit and you are ready to move forward, a 50% retainer will be placed to secure our services and take your date off our calendar.
