Hi, we are Danielle and Adam! We are 28 and both in the wedding industry (husband and wife photo and video team), and Adam is also a project manager for a construction company. We are high school sweethearts, and we live in Atascadero, CA with our mini goldendoodle Sawyer. We are originally from the Bay Area (Pleasanton), but we recently moved back to the Central Coast because we missed it too much. We both went to Cal Poly and fell in love with the area.
I've always loved fashion and wanted to be a fashion photographer, but decided that lifestyle wasn't for me. Instead, I photograph beautiful, stylish weddings where I actually have a lot of creative freedom. Growing up, I would draw catalogue after catalogue of clothes, make interior design boards for restaurants, and glue together polly pocket pieces as if I was an architect making a model. I've always had the entrepreneurial spirit, creative eye, and the drive to be my own boss. I love styling outfits and interiors on a budget, and finding ways to combine old and new.
Adam loves wood working and making his designs come to life. From outdoor pergolas, to wood boxes for our clients, to dining tables, to welding a coffee table base or our new loft railing, he builds it all. He is the hardest worker I know, and puts in countless hours to make our dreams happen.
We recently bought a new house, the #AtownAframe, where we are doing a complete remodel. We gutted it down to the studs and are putting our touch on every inch of this place. If you're been following us for a while, then you know the #poffpad, our first house in Livermore, CA. We did a full backyard and front yard remodel there, and after completing those, we knew it was time for our next project.
Q&A >> SOME COMMON QUESTIONS We GET ASKED:
Q: Are you doing all the remodeling yourself? Most of it! We are very particular with how things are done.
Q: Where did you go to college? Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo! If you're looking for a good vacation spot, check it out!
Q: Where did you and your husband meet? We met sophomore year of high school through mutual friends and then started dating middle of our senior year. We both moved down to SLO together when we were 19 and went to Cal Poly.
Q: Did you get your goldendoodle Sawyer from a breeder? No, we actually found him on Craigslist in Orange County. We got in 5 years ago while still living in SLO. He was 8 weeks old and 5 pounds, such a cutie!!
Q: How do you come up with all of the design plans for your house? Countless hours on the internet and social media help us refine our ideas. But really our ideas come from wanting to do something new and interesting. We are also really inspired by Palm Springs and all things mid century modern.
Q: How did you get into thrifting? My mom has been taking me to garage sales with her since I was a baby, so my love for finding a good deal started young.
Q: What's your go to outfit? A graphic tee and high waisted jeans or high waisted jean shorts, depending on the weather!
