We are so happy that our work has brought you here and more than anything else, hope it makes you feel something. We firmly believe that when it comes to art, you should feel it’s the right fit for you. Right into your bones. We want you to be over the moon excited to have us be a part of your milestones. You should trust the person documenting your life 100% and we want you to trust us with your story.
We are the Arroyos.
Hi, we are Josh & Sam. We are married, live on the Big Island in Hawaii and we capture love stories all over the world. Southern California is where our love began and is our second home.
We’ve been in love for 15 years and married for 9 years. Our relationship has been through long distance, growing pains, and so many insane trips around the world together and apart. It's the driving force behind our work and lives. We have spent years documenting our relationship and know the importance of capturing milestones in your life – big and small.
Creating is one of the most important parts of my life. I live in the ocean. I love Josh. I also love dogs & pizza.
I don’t do things half-heartedly. I want to make art. I make dad jokes. I love Sam. Beer and whiskey are good. Coffee is better. I like fire.
How we work
our shooting style
The best way we can describe the way we work is laid back. We make sure your day is as fun and stress free as possible. We know that getting your photos taken can feel super overwhelming and awkward, but we promise you by the end you will forget the cameras are even there.
We capture moments as they happen, make family portraits short and sweet, and make the time you spend with just the two of you about your connection and love.
We shoot a mix of editorial and documentary style on the day of your wedding. We shoot on digital, 35mm film, medium format film, Hi8 and super 8. We love film and the way it captures memories.
We will be your biggest cheerleaders and will help make your day as amazing as you are.
This is our weird, wild love and there is no in between.
