Hey it's us!
We are the Arroyos – Josh & Sam. We live and work in Southern California in between some incredible places – Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree – but we love to travel everywhere love can be found.
We have been in love for over 12 years and married for 6. We are best friends and feel incredibly happy to get to capture the love between other best friends. We laugh hard, love hard, drive each other crazy and could never ever have chosen anyone else more perfect for each other to spend forever with. We love motorcycles, the desert, whiskey, hiking in the Sierra Nevada and road trips.
Our relationship is a huge part of why we work and inspires us to capture other love stories that inspire us. We love to hear other peoples stories and would love to hear and hopefully capture yours.
Hi I'm Sam! I'm the more introverted of the two of us. I am good at drawing out the tiny little moments to capture the two of you just being you. I love to get so close you can see the freckles on your cheeks or the goosebumps on your arm. I'm also tiny so I'm good at sneaking around and catching moments without anyone realizing I'm there. You be you and I'll be me and let's make some cool stuff.
Hi this is what we look like if you wanted to know. This is us in our element: Matching denim jackets and on some crazy cliff together, probably thinking about pizza.
Hi I'm Josh. I make films of people in love. I don't make traditional wedding videos. That's lame, let's do something rad. I love Sam. I ride motorcycles. I really dig fire, drinking beer and going camping. I make a lot of dad jokes. I guess I'm the more extroverted one but it's weird putting stuff here so let's just hang out instead.
Love is absolutely everything and we think that two humans finding each other is the greatest thing there is. We want to capture the way your love feels, not just the way it looks. We want more than the posed and pretty stuff, and we want it with people who aren't afraid to break free from tradition.
We want to capture your love with you at home where it lives or in the wild, on an adventure with you. We want to trek through the mud, hike to a cliff, start a fire, ride through the desert and get all the crazy, messy, love moments you share.
We want to capture your love as it says forever in a place that means so much to you... With the wind in your hair, or the rain on your back, or in the busy streets with a full band, or a quiet backyard filled with friends. Take off your shoes, let your dress get dirty and dance the night away.
Most importantly: we want to honestly show how amazing and wonderful your love is. And we want to turn it into the freakin art that it is.
So if all of this sounds good to you, then we're the perfect fit. We'd love to get to know you in person as humans.
