photography for those madly in love


Currently serving a limited number of destinations, elopements, adventure sessions and proposals each year. Accepting large weddings on a very limited basis, inquire for more information.

The level of love and care we put into the planning, coordination, shooting, experience, and editing for each and every couple we service has allowed us to take a more refined approach to each and every couple we work with. We understand our type of coverage isn’t for everyone. If you think you’re a Barkis + Co couple, we encourage you to read on…

We offer an exclusive experience for couples who want awe inspiring images, all while touring the one of a kind locations selected especially for you. All our coverage includes comprehensive exploration, planning, and coordination, before shooting even begins. Upon finalization of your unique experience, we are continually available for your consult on the best places to enjoy your stay. From lodging to restaurants, local attractions and seasonal must-do’s, we are here to assist you in having the most wonderful experience we can possibly provide, through and through.

The Experience

When your coverage day finally comes, we offer transportation in our spacious, freshly detailed SUV, allowing you to sit back and truly experience all the coast has to offer. We bring you to each location, allowing you peace of mind and the ultimate convenience. This is also an excellent opportunity for us to get to know you better, making the photos far more personable as a result.

Upon completion, your gallery is delivered within just one week, with the exception of proposals which have a 24 hour delivery time. All galleries include a beautiful online gallery with a convenient password and pin based download. We lovingly edit all the finalized images in both color & archival black and white edits. Your images are yours to download, share and print as you please. Your gallery will remain available for a minimum of 6 months, during which time you can make unlimited downloads, backups & copies.


We are currently available for 20 elopements per year. The elopement experience begins at $1750.

Our elopement experiences are for events with a maximum of 5 guests. If you’re considering eloping, let us be the first to say – you’re making a great decision. We eloped, and it was the single best decision we’ve ever made! We understand the importance of the images when eloping, which is why we offer two packages that encompass a one of a kind experience together, resulting in stunning imagery you will cherish for generations to come.


We are currently available for 12 adventure sessions per year. The adventure experience begins at $750.

This is a completely new concept for many, but in our opinion (and clients who have enjoyed the adventure experience for themselves), the only way to truly have images that not only encompass your trip to the coast but also to see it from a local’s perspective. The adventure session includes our customized planning and coordination, all transportation during your coverage, a meal at one of our favorite local spots (on us!), 3+ hours of coverage, 3+ locations, 3+ outfits, endless talking, laughing & a guaranteed good time.


Proposal coverage includes our customized planning and coordination, and a 24-hour gallery turnaround so she can share the moment immediately afterward. Proposals begin at $375

Proposing can be the most exciting, yet nerve-wracking moment in your relationship thus far. We know how important the moment and the images are for you. We include our custom proposal coordination, from location scouting to tips & tricks, secret signal ideas and more. We will guide you on how to navigate Big Sur’s lack of cell service, backup options, tricks on how to get your lady to dress up, how to stay inconspicuous, and more. We also arrive 30 minutes prior, in case you are early, and allocate for running 30 minutes behind as well. You also receive two photographers, capturing multiple angles of that special moment.


All destination coverage is custom designed per client and includes travel, photographic coverage, and our customized coordination.

Domestic destination coverage will receive a discount on photography coverage. International destination coverage may be subject to free photography when travel and lodging accommodations are included for two. We love to travel, and we love spending a ton of time with like-minded couples we get to meet through photography!  We’ve combined the best of both worlds with our destination coverage. Our upcoming destinations include Costa Rica and Singapore.


All wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session and digital files. Wedding coverage begins at $4500.

Let us be one of the first to say congratulations! Planning the happiest day of your life can be a daunting task, but we aim to make the photography aspect as effortless as possible. Being a husband and wife duo, this allows us a more interpersonal approach to your photography. It’s more than just the click of the camera- it’s about feeling comfortable and at ease. We strive to capture your unique story and all its little details along the way. As a husband and wife couple, we can relate to all the feelings – from excitement to nervousness, and everything in between. We’ll laugh with you, cry with you, dance + help in every way we can to create a perfect wedding experience for you.
