"Hi! I'm Britt, creator of The Argus Image, a Los Angeles and San Francisco based photography collective.
We are a team of extremely talented wedding and lifestyle photographers and videographers. We are incredibly passionate about what we do and we would be honored to document your story in a visual narrative that can be enjoyed over and over again.
Thank you for stopping by!
A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I am the proud owner of two dogs.
Lover of anything with dark chocolate as well as anything cheesy (in both food and in life!).
My three words to live my life by are respect, love and passion.
You are likely to find me traveling solo, living the van life on some photographic excursion or shooting astrophotography on any given day of the week. Seriously though... One day I may be writing and editing in my office and the next in the middle of the desert shooting the stars.
I love being active and living a healthy lifestyle.
I am the creator of She The Free (coming soon in 2019).
My dad gave me a plaque when I first started my company with the quote, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” by Les Brown. This has been above my desk ever since and it is a constant reminder to always strive for more and to never give up no matter how difficult things may become.
Helping others turn their dreams into reality and become successful entrepreneurs and photographers is a goal of mine that I strive to fulfill every chance I get.
My Motto: Be the best version of yourself that you can be. Check yourself daily. Make the most out of your life. Inspire others and never stop inspiring yourself.
I fell in love with videography because the enjoyment of creating everlasting memories fills me up with excitement. Motion art has a way of making you see the world in awe and that is why I chose to pursue this path when I moved to San Francisco from the Santa Rosa Valley. I love to travel and play sports and I used to coach youth basketball all around the South Bay Area as well as in Italy! My experience traveling and coaching has made me humbled and inspired. I hope to continue to spread positivity and to inspire others to chase after their passions. When it comes to documenting a couple, I utilize my experience of traveling the world and of my art, to organically document their love and their story.
I have always felt so blessed and grateful for my family, friends and all of the opportunities that I have been gifted in life. I love that photography and videography has opened up doors in my mind to exploring this world and seeing people for who they truly are. Before I became a photographer, I worked in education and with the community in the Bay Area. The diverseness of San Francisco has taught me to appreciate the various cultural differences that city living has to offer. Living in a city known for its amazing cuisine, I also love to eat everything! I have a Fiancé that I can’t wait to marry and a wild dog named, Kona. I love the organic moments that unfold in front of me as these are the most memorable which strongly influence the way I shoot as a cinematographer.
I love capturing the raw, real emotions that our clients share between one another. My main focus is to see the love that our couples share and to not only tell their story but to bring their feelings to life in motion. I strongly believe that quality through video and audio is just as important as the story that is being told. I am always eager to make the moments that are shared between two people, that I see behind my lens, become everlasting. I strive to create from our clients stories, making the best wedding films imaginable for our couples!
My venture in photography began when I was in film school many years ago. I worked in television as a camera operator on shows such as Top Chef, Last Comic Standing, The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, The Girls Next Door and Scare Tactics, to name a few.
My background in television and film has had a considerable influence on my photography and with how I capture moments. I transitioned into still photography in 2008 and I have been capturing life through my camera’s lens ever since. I am a huge fan of natural light photography but I have a lot of fun playing with speed lights and with other creative elements.
Candid is how I shoot. Photojournalism is a passion and due to my film background, my style is heavily documentary, capturing the real moments and watching life unfold in front of the lens. After all, these are the moments that tug at your heart.
I am a photographer based in the Bay Area of California. My photography reflects the way I see the world, from the most minuscule details to the grandest splendors, and from sweet, candid moments to aesthetically directed captures.
To me, photography is a way I pursue and share beauty in the world, in addition to music and human relationships. When I'm not doing photography, I am a speech-language pathology graduate student, musician, singer, avid reader, language lover (I'm fluent in three!), or possibly away traveling the world!
Photographer, dreamer, computer geek, adventurer and a city girl at heart!
I believe you should laugh at least 10 times a day. Bonus points if you can get others to laugh with you. I believe it’s better to have a compass than a map because you can’t pave your own way by following someone else’s map.
When I’m alone in my car I sing along at the top of my lungs and pretend I’m trying out for “The Voice,” even though my voice is more akin to a foghorn. I believe in confidence. If you don’t think you’re awesome, how can you expect anyone else to think you’re awesome? Truffle fries are my spirit animal.
I believe in constantly learning new things. If you’re not growing up, you’re just growing old. I can’t stop dancing. If there’s a beat I will groove. If there’s not a beat? Well, I will hear one in my head anyway. I like my beer hoppy, my wine spicy and my bourbon dry. I believe in travelling because in the words of Pink Floyd, “All you touch and all you see are all your life will ever be”. I believe in work hard/play hard and blurring the lines between the two. Enjoying the journey is just as important as a sense of accomplishment.
I first picked up a DSLR camera when I was 14. I developed my first roll of film in the darkroom and it was love.
I went on to study film photography and digital communications at Sonoma State University. Since then, I have always found ways to incorporate photography into my life and now I get to bring my passion to you! I love the challenge of capturing candid and heartfelt moments! I love people and I love telling their story through my lens.
I would say that I am strongest at lifestyle, photojournalism and candid style photography. However, I also love creating editorial and portrait style photographs that convey strength and emotion. My goal for my clients is to leave them feeling happy, excited and confident that I have captured moments that they will cherish forever.
When I’m not taking photos, I love hanging out with friends and family or running and hiking in the Redwoods with my dog, Libby. I am a lover of board-games, cute downtown scenes, Sauvignon Blanc and HGTV Design Shows. I love, love, love (did I say love?) traveling, and the anticipation of a good adventure; in fact, airports are one of my favorite places to be. I feel strongly that life is about the journey, not the destination.
Originally from Berlin, Germany, I was influenced by various great artists. My interest in photography especially blossomed after working for and with Britt Arnett of The Argus Image. Britt personally trained me from the ground up for over three years and I have continued to develop my skills in order to be in-sync with her brand and vision.
My style is very organic, with a focus on the natural, candid moments that unfold before me.
My biggest inspiration is my daughter, Stella Rose. I love documenting families, babies, and weddings because I know first hand, being a mother myself, that time is fleeting and having images of these particularly priceless moments are precious to all involved.
This is truly why I became a photographer, it allows one to honestly capture what we hold closest to our hearts and freeze these moments not only for our lifetime but for the generations to come after us.
I am fluent in German and in English and good Elderflower martini is the way to my heart! You can catch me at a 5 am Orange Theory Fitness class almost daily and above all, being a mom is my favorite thing in this world.
My father first introduced me to photography when I was eight years old. However, it had taken quite some time until I was completely enamored with the camera’s ability to capture slices of time and emotions. Once it struck me, I never looked back. My approach to wedding photography is a combination of documentary and fine art. Influenced by a mix of moments, emotion, scenery, light and color – all of which are powerful tools for me. My experience in photography is extensive and so is my history with travel and the exploration of the beautiful world in which we live.
Originally from Europe, I moved to the East Coast where I continued my work in wedding photography. Where Europe sparked my passion, Florida expanded it and when I recently moved to California, it hands down became my favorite place to photograph. I fell in love with the weather, the land, the people and the diverse culture of California. All of these elements have made me feel at home.
I am a husband and a father and they’re my world. When I am not taking pictures, most of the time you can find me hiking, playing tennis, catching up on my favorite book or hanging out with my family and friends.
I have been featured for over six years in some of the world’s top wedding blogs and magazine’s. Which I like to think of being examples of my passion and the love I have for photographing fleeting moments.
I love being a wedding photographer! Telling your story with creativity, grace, and fun is my way of documenting this momentous occasion in your life.
Born and raised in Orange County, my first few years in photography were spent in action sports and in documenting families. It wasn’t until my own wedding, that I decided to dive into the amazing world of wedding photography. There is nothing better than capturing the love between two people. I continually pursue a sense of defiance and fortitude in my art, while capturing who you are, the real you.
With a heavy background in photojournalism, as well as having received training in the art of posing people from one of the top wedding photographers in the US and in Canada, I can organically capture the authentic moments and all the while adding a cinematic touch to my work.
I don’t want you to simply remember your wedding day, I want you to relive it! I am a husband of 9 years, father of two for 6 years and I have a love for my profession that has been unwavering for over 10 years.
Hi I’m Kate! Brand and content manager to fine art wedding and destination photographers from all over the world! I have had the great privilege of working alongside Britt and The Argus Image helping wherever I can with all the behind the scenes tasks required to get all of their beautiful art out into the world. I’m a business owner, momma, and dance fanatic residing in Ottawa Canada, where regular kitchen dance parties are a thing.
I’m obsessed with oversized sweaters from Anthropologie, home décor and collecting cookbooks just to admire the photography. Whether it be blogging, editing, album design or submitting, I am so fortunate that I get to look at such beautiful images all day long.
