After our own intimate wedding in an olive grove in New Zealand, we founded Dear Lovers with the desire to capture love and spend more time together. 

We’re based out of Southern California, where our love for golden light and the beauty of fine art film comes to life. We feel so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such incredible couples who also share the same love! Our heart is to create our best work yet every time we shoot. Images that are timeless, humble and romantic, and that truly and honestly reflects our couple’s unique stories.


HELLO DARLINGS,

THE VANOVERS

Marriage is honestly one of the most beautiful things and we love everything that it stands for. We pour our whole heart into our images and hope that they can be a real, lasting and honest record of your sweetest moments together. We work together as a seamless pair to create exceptional imagery.

BETTER TOGETHER
