I was born and raised in Monterey, making Big Sur my backyard! I grew up exploring and hiking all the trails; the beauty of this place is what fueled my passion for photography and videography! I started by capturing landscapes and that quickly turned into capturing people's love stories!

When my wife, Nadeen and I aren't working, we are traveling with our daughter by our side. Beach days + hiking are our favorite ways to spend our days together! Find us at a local coffee shop or getting an acaí bowl! We love traveling and showing our daughter the world, she is a pro now! Our family means everything to us and ever since becoming parents, we love capturing other families, even more than before!

Where it all started: In 2018, when my wife and I first met, we both knew we wanted to travel a lot and make it a key part of our business! We frequently fly across the pacific to the beautiful islands of Hawai'i to capture love stories, as well! Starting in 2019 we began serving many other destinations such as Mexico and Europe! 





Fast forward to 2022 and we decided it was time to get married in the way we help so many others do, by eloping in Big Sur! Now each time we are in Big Sur, we love to point out to our couples the spot that we got married in!

Now I get to travel and do what I love on MY terms, with the people I love most.

I am Gabriel Howard, a BIG SUR based VIDEOGRAPHER, creative and world traveler.

Inspired By

Connecting with our couples on more than just a surface level is why we limit how many weddings we take on per year. We are usually capped at 15 so that we can show up fully and ready to serve you! We always say "it's not just about the film or the photos, it's about the experience too." We want you to walk away eager to remember every detail, big and small. 

If you're like us, and value capturing and preserving the most meaningful moments of your life, then let's do this!

This is about connection - between you and between us.

I believe that the moments you want to remember aren't always perfect or scripted, they are uncut, raw and writhing with emotion.
