Behind the lens

We can't wait to tell your story.

the Lees

We're Tatyana and Steven (or, you know, The Lees). 

We're a married team of lifestyle wedding photographers, constantly chasing natural light throughout California. We're also Cal Poly grads, latte and wine addicts, and those people that walk up to strangers asking to pet their dog.

Our favorite part of what we do, is getting to know our couples and their love story. By the time we arrive on the wedding day, we want you to feel like you're just hanging out with old friends, and us to know that we can document your story in a way that's authentically your own.
A way that makes you look back at your images and
say to each other, "That really feels like US".

When we're not shooting, we're probably hiking 
with our dog Scooby, binge watching Friends (again), 
or road-tripping to a new city.
 

Hi lovebirds        We’re so excited that you’re here!

About tatyana

Meet Steven

I'm obsessed 
with anything 
gold or blush. 
Especially 
if it's both.

Quick facts

I once had a Nordstrom associate look at my purchase history and say it was unlike anything he'd ever seen. 
Our bedroom is basically a converted fitting room.

Quick facts

I quote F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
at least 10 times on any given day.
It's my lobster.

Quick facts

I'm definitely a 
carbs > sweets 
kind of girl. 
If I could eat solely sourdough bread 
every day, 
I'd be one 
happy camper.

On our rare 
weekends off, 
you'll find me wine tasting with Steven and our dog Scooby. 
And taking 
obsessed dog mom 
photos of him.

If there's a new game on Kickstarter, chances are I've already backed it.

I'm not a fan of roller coasters, but I could spend all day at a 
water park.

Quick facts

I love reading. 
As long as it's post-apocalyptic, or in any way resembles 
The Walking Dead.

I could go to the movies every day. And Alamo Drafthouse serving food during the show, makes it a lot easier to get Tatyana to go with me.

Quick facts

I'm obsessed with macaroni and cheese, and as a kid I used to eat a box of the Kraft goodness for breakfast. 
Every day.

Quick facts

the amount of money we spend on coffee could probably pay our mortgage. Anytime we go to a new city, or have a free morning, the first thing we decide is where to get coffee.

our favorite thing to do together is to explore new places, and see how people live all over the world. so far our favorite destinations are ireland and france.

our favorite sushi restaurant is around the corner from our house, and it's a struggle not to go every night.

the owners know us 
by name.

From sleeping in our bed, to drinking water from the brita, you could say that our 13 year old boxer/lab mix is just a tad bit babied.

We truly do this because we believe in love, marriage, and creating memories. being able to do what we love together, is just the icing on the cake.

Travel

Lattes

We started dating, moved in together 4 months later, and haven't looked back since. 
That was 2011.

Watch the day 
we became
The Lees!

We got engaged in 2013, became The Lees in 2015, 
and then decided it would be a great idea buy a fixer upper, and move halfway across the country 
10 DAYS LATER!

As much as we love sharing photos of our gorgeous couples on the site, we want you to get to know us better by seeing some of our own favorite memories!

Meet Tatyana

We want you to get to know us, 
and we want to get to know you.

Instead of being the strangers following you around 
on your wedding day, 
we'd rather be the friends 
that happen to have cameras!
