MEET US

Sarena & Jonathon

Hey! We're Sarena & Jonathon, a photo + film + mom + dad duo! Sarena began photographing families and weddings in 2007 while Jonathon built a career as a pioneer in the esports industry beginning with production and later with business management. The universe brought us together and it was clear we were meant to build something great. Working and creating together is our love language.

Nice to meet you!

LOVE ALWAYS WINS

Weddings

Your day means so much more to us than a transaction. We don't want your day filled with awkward forced poses and smiles. We want to fully invest in you, who you are, and in the end tell your love story. Every love story is unique and that is what we want to capture. What does that mean? It means that we are here for you one thousand percent and you deserve that. You deserve to feel supported as your photographer provides you with thoughtful, breathtaking and artistic photos and/or a film of your special day.

FLEETING MOMENTS

Lifestyle

Capturing your fleeting moments so they last a lifetime. As a mama and dad duo, we know just how special those moments are. It often feels there aren't enough hours in the day to spend with your loved ones. You blink and suddenly your babies are grown up.  We want to document those pure raw moments so you can relive those special days over and over again.

BROUGHT TEARS

The photos we received after our super sweet shoot with Sarena were so beautiful & captured the essence of our family so well that they literally brought tears to my eyes! And very important to note-she did such an amazing job with our 2.5 year old-making it fun & engaging for him by giving him little jobs and just by simply making the photo shoot a playful experience for all of us!

TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY

Sarena did our engagement photos and traveled to do our elopement ceremony photos in New Orleans. She totally and completely captured the mood and emotion of our intimate day. I have happily recommended her to my family and friends and will continue to do so.

FOREVER THANKFUL

What an exceptional experience! Drew and I haven’t had professional photos

taken since our wedding, which was six years ago!

 

When we found out we were expecting our first little bebe, Owen Kenlee, we immediately reached out to Sarena for photos. Back story too - we met Sarena and Panda two years ago on float trip! We immediately loved her style, her vibe and spunky personality - she is pretty rad! So, when the time came to take maternity photos, we all chit-chatted and well,

here we are - making maternity magic happen! 

 

The whole day was filled with adventure, down south in my hometown, Monticello.

Sarena, Panda and Sweet Baby Olive made the 1.5 hour trip down and we all had the BEST afternoon! Drew and I went with the adventure package and I’m so thankful we did!

We all laughed, Drew and I shared a few impromptu dances and kisses (Hehe) and

we truly had the best experience! 

Forever thankful for such cherished treasures to look back on and say to our Sweet Owen, “Owen, you’re in that big ole’ belly, Buddy - Dad and Mom sure do love you!” 

Thank you Nouvel for such an easy process, memories, photos an overall experience!

Drew an I look forward to many more adventures with you guys! 💙”
