Hola, we're Laura + Priscilla, a photographer + videographer duo

We're thrilled to welcome you to our vibrant world of photos + films, celebrating humanity in all its beauty and diversity.

Our Origin Story

It all started when our creative kids became friends in preschool. After months of begging, we got together for a pizza night with both families. We hit it off right away, and every time we hung out, we found ourselves talking about creativity, photography, equity in businesses, and our love of adventure. As we learned about each other's backgrounds, with Laura's expertise in film & TV and Priscilla's in photojournalism, we realized we were perfectly equipped to offer high-quality and vibrant creative storytelling services as a dynamic duo. Together, we're a creative, enthusiastic, empathetic, and super fun team. We decided our first story to document together would be about our 'magical kids in the woods' who inspired our entire business.

The Team

Laura Manchester

Lead videographer

Laura started her career as a scenic painter, went on to produce and direct theatre, and has spent the last decade as a TV producer. Her focus has always been creativity, visual arts, and above all else: story. She’s passionate about telling the story of this moment in time, honoring each person's truth, and she loves to put a pop-art spin on anything she can. Her biggest hope is to connect with each client, and maybe find some new skateboarding buddies in the process.

Priscilla Santos

Lead photographer

Priscilla is a bi-cultural Cuban American who adores speaking Spanglish (mix of Spanish + English). Her two favorite things in life are meeting new people + laughing 'till it hurts. Can you see why being a storyteller is the best role for her? With her background in photojournalism, her style is capturing authentic, candid moments — the more diversity, laughter, joy + color, the better. As a social justice leader, she aims to people centered while emboding equity + justice in everything she creates and business practices.

Our Style



We don't shy away from color, contrast, and things feeling alive. We're always down to play with different locations in Southern California, family activities, wild filters on our cameras, anything to bring out the vibrancy and joy of life.



"Play is the opposite of survival mode" -@Britchida

The laughter, joy, and connection that comes from playing together is what makes life meaningful.

We want every photo shoot to feel like we're playing around. And we want the finished product to reflect how YOU have fun.



We don't aim to have every shoot look the same for our aesthetic. We want you to be free to be you.

Love confetti? Let’s throw some! Want to be in a punk band? Let’s make your family a music video! Enjoy a peaceful picnic at the beach? Whatever you’re interested in, we want to play with you and give you something you’ll treasure year after year.


La Familia Reyes

"Our family had an amazing photo shoot at the beach with Laura + Priscilla. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Not only did they have a great eye for capturing beautiful moments, but they also made the session fun and enjoyable for everyone, including our young children. They were skilled at keeping our kids engaged and capturing their genuine smiles, individual personalities and laughter."

The Findlaters

"I have known Priscilla for over 17 years, and I’m always left in awe witnessing her work. She makes everyone around her feel comfortable and brings joy to everyone she meets. I had the pleasure of having Priscilla photograph my surprise engagement in Laguna Beach. We had a mini-session following the proposal and the photos were just beautiful. As I write this, I’m reliving that magical feeling I had on that day, and I’m so thankful that Priscilla was able to help create those memories."

Baby Ari Time Capsule

"I have absolutely loved working with Laura on my baby’s first year time capsule! She came up with incredible ideas for his monthly milestone photos and made the experience fun and memorable, so much so that I actually look forward to taking his monthly photos!! Also, the videos and photos she takes each month to capture my baby for the time capsule are so unique and beautiful, and I’m so excited to see the whole year come together."
