Amy + Carey | The Villa San Juan Capristrano

Small, intimate weddings hold a special place in our hearts and Carey + Amy's wedding day is a perfect example of one.  A day where anything and we mean even the smallest detail holds meaning. Their love for each other, family and friends is truly why we do what we do.

USB Memory Direct Review

We are so excited to share a behind-the-scenes review of our experience with these custom flash drives by USB Memory Direct. We have been using these flash drives to deliver wedding images to our clients for a few weeks now and are totally loving them. We love that USB Memory has a huge selection of styles + materials and even offer custom shaped drive! Seriously, they can turn your unique company logo into a flash drive! A completely custom 3D rendering out of nearly any material wood, metal, stainless steel, marble, plastic, leather, rubber AND they can even add moving parts, ceramics, accessories and so much more. We decided on the timeless, natural and classic wood style, WDR14, with our  logo imprinted on it and we could not be happier!

Thank you to our friends over at USB Memory Direct for these rad custom flash drives. We hope this review was helpful for some of our fellow photographer friends out there! If you decide to give USB Memory Direct a try, leave us a note below & let us know what you think!
