we are Mike and Nat,

husband and wife wedding photographers in the SF Bay Area. We are passionate about authentic moments and developing a great connection with each couple.

Thank you for being here. We hope that you stay awhile. Read more about us...

Looking for something in particular? Here are a few places to start browsing:

We’ve finally had a chance to prepare some of our recent travel photographs and we wanted to share them with all of our awesome readers on the blog. The galleries span the last couple of years and cover trips to Costa Rica, Israel, Jamaica, St. Petersburg (Russia), and even some local adventures to state parks nearby.

You can find these galleries on our portfolio website (www.chocostudio.com) by clicking on “travel galleries”. They can also be reached directly by clicking on the image below:

Natasha and I love to see new places and we go on as many adventures as possible whenever we have a chance to get away. All these trips happen with our cameras permanently attached to us as though they’re a natural extension of our bodies. (Sometimes I would wake up to realize that the camera is still my hands and I fell asleep while checking the photos I got that day :) Even our travel plans are often made around trying to get the best photographic opportunities and catch the best light. I guess what I am trying to say is that we love to take pictures for ourselves just as much as we love creating unique photographs for our clients during the weddings we shoot.

This winter we decided to make plans for an extended trip to travel to Southeast Asia. This will be our first time visiting this region and we’re definitely excited and looking forward to this opportunity. Our itinerary so far consists of a one way ticket into Vietnam at the end of December and a one way ticket back out of Thailand towards the end of January. We are loaded up on Lonely Planet guides, and, along with our big backpacks in tow, we are getting ready to leave for this upcoming adventure.

We hope to have a chance to update the blog from the road, so long as we stumble upon some internet cafes. We’ve also prepared several fun blog posts with personal photos set to be published during our time away.

Hope your weekend in this moody weather we are having is going great. Please enjoy the travel galleries and let us know what you think!
